New Delhi, Oct 1: Now Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chairman, Suresh Kalmadi is hopeful of bringing the Olympic Games to India.

Speaking at the Global Sports Summit "Turf 2010" organised by FICCI, Kalmadi said, organising good a Commonwealth Games would help the country organise the Olympics also.

"The biggest legacy of CWG is Olympics. Cricket is the most popular sport in India, but it is played by just 10 countries. Olympics has all sports. We have to ensure that Olympics come up. This is our opportunity and CWG will help," Kalmadi said.

India intends to bid for the 2020 Games but the Indian Olympic Association and the Sports Ministry have been at loggerheads on the issue.
