Three days ahead of the vote to choose the host of the 2020 Olympics, Tokyo bid officials tried to fend off concerns about a leak of radioactive water at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant in northern Japan.

Tokyo is competing with Madrid and Istanbul for the right to host the 2020 Olympic Games. The International Olympic Committee will select the host city by secret ballot on Sept. 7.
