In this Wednesday, June 27, 2012 photo, Tokyo 2020 Bid Committee CEO Masato Mizuno gestures as he speaks at a press gathering in Tokyo. Given the choice of staying in the family business or helping Tokyo land the 2020 Olympics, Mizuno knew it was time to put country ahead of company. The 69-year-old Mizuno stepped down as chairman of Mizuno Corp. last year after 23 years as the leader of the successful sporting goods company to become CEO of Tokyo's 2020 bid committee.
