I don't think that the Olympic Games will return to Vancouver after 14 years. Besides the fact that there will be a fierce competition from Europe and the United States. Maybe Toronto can be a good participant.

I know that it's impossible that Vancouver will submit any bid soon But when it happen, it would be very good they would win

Maybe true, I don't know it what context though....because LA is Hollywood, and with 41.1 million tourist visits in 2012. London hosted 3 times. Experience, weather, space, infrastructure, mobility etc. it's all here.

1984 reinvented the games (saved them actually) to it's current functionality. 1932 LA introduced the medal ceremony, raising of the flags and standing on podiums among other things. LAX was just expanded and more is coming, Metro is expanding etc.

NY is costly, maybe 10 times more, and logistically a nightmare....but not impossible...same as SF.

So, it's not just a superficial "it's boring", that's not what the committee will look at. BTW, Atlanta was for sure "boring".

LA can rock it, for sure. It's a historical and important place for the Olympic Games, plus the economic power of the city.
When I said "little boring", i meant bc i think IOC must give the opportunity to new places and try somthg new

Thanks for your support, but Toronto is the only Canadian bid city on offer. A Vancouver summer Olympics bid is likely a couple decades away at the earliest.

That is correct... however if an applicant city that has never hosted the game can't convince the IOC that they have the best bid, the IOC will favor an applicant city that has hosted the game over a new one, like today Tokyo won the bid to host the 2020 Games over two cities that have never hosted the games, Madrid and Istanbul.

Tokyo's win will favour European bids... Specially, Paris.

So now after 2020 is over, everyone one is going to focus on this now? And does anyone do when do they announce the winner? I know that there are still no confirm bids(?) but just want to know when are they announce it. After 2016 or....

i have my doubts that after Rio in 2016 and tokyo in 2020 they will not choose a european country in 2024. it would leave europe with no games for 12 years. I would see Madrid, Paris and Berlin as heavy Candidates

IOC will try "new places" as long as those "new places" can convince the IOC members that they are capable of holding the games. South Africa is contemplating 2024.

Italy's PM Enrico Letta: "We can apply for 2024 Olympic Games"

''What happened yesterday in Buenos Aires makes me think that in 2024 Italy can apply for the Olympic Games'', the prime minister Letta said today in a political meeting.
Italy is a great country but ''if we have deadlines - he added - we can commit ourselves better. It's a project - he concluded - on which I will work.''

The day after the winning of Tokyo, Italy think for 2024 edition.
PM Letta: "Italy is a candidate. When this country is joined for the big events, we give the best performance".


Japan has achieved the 2020 Olympic Games, despite the adverse economic situation . For Italy, that with the Monti government had to withdraw the nomination for the same reasons, open up new possibilities: "What happened yesterday in Buenos Aires, makes me think that for 2024, Italy may apply to the Olympics", says the premier Enrico Letta. Italy is a great country but "if we have deadlines - he added - commit ourselves better. It's a theme - he concluded - on which I'll work".

The mayor of Rome, Ignazio Marino: "There are the conditions for candidacy to host the Games in Rome, because the city has the necessary requirements. I will ask soon a meeting at the Prime Minister Letta and the President of CONI Malagò".

"Even Milan can have his papers to run for the Olympics of 2024" says Antonio Rossi, Olympic champion of the canoe and now Councillor for Sports of the Lombardy Region. "From sports I'm happy for the words of Prime Minister Letta. I'll not turn on disputes with Rome. But Milan has the facilities of the Expo with the construction of a stadium and a swimming pool in the area, after 2016, he would have more chance. We talked also with the president Maroni".

Malagò: "I've already spoken with Enrico Letta, now you can dream". From Buenos Aiers declares the phone its satisfaction with the position taken by the President of the Council on the Olympic bid for 2024. ''I heard the mayor of Rome, Marino and the Governor of Lazio, Zingaretti: I'll see you soon.''

In February of last year "the government has done well" to withdraw from Rome's candidacy for the Olympics of 2020, according to former Sports Minister Piero Gnudi, he hopes that "from here the situation changes''. Olympic Games - he said - are a target stimulus for the economy. ''I think that Rome is a natural candidate. And the games are an event that unifies the nation''.

Rome could bid again to host 2024 Olympics, says CONI
[IMG]http://oi42.************/2h4me0k.jpg[/IMG]

Rome may yet be in the running to host the 2024 Olympic games, the head of the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) said Wednesday. Giovanni Malago suggested that anything is possible, including another shot for the Italian capital at hosting the Olympics. For example, no one predicted the recent silver medal win by swimmer Federica Pellegrini at the World Swimming Championships, said Malago. "I did not expect the silver from Federica...but when she said 'I'm going', I realized that anything might happen," Malago explained in an interview with Italy's leading sports newspaper, Gazzetta dello Sport.

Pellegrini – who said she had not planned to defend her 200m world title won in 2009 and 2011 - ended a 12-month sabbatical to take second at the Barcelona championships. Similarly, with the right support, Italy could also surprise many by hosting the Olympics, suggested Malago. Italy's dreams of hosting the 2020 Olympics were dashed in February 2012 by then-premier Mario Monti who suggested that Italy, which all of its debts and serious economic problems, could not afford such an expensive venture.

"I had to take a difficult decision (to reject) a magnificent project, and there was a lot of disappointment," Monti told the European Parliament at the time. "But I have the impression that public opinion has understood (why I did so)," he added. Monti did not give the bid his required endorsement, citing financial risks at a time when crisis-hit Italy was enduring tough austerity measures. However, Malago suggested things have since changed, and that Finance Minister Fabrizio Saccomanni has said hosting such an events could be possible. There would have to be "attention on the expenditure side," added Malago. He hinted that he also has support from Regional Affairs Minister Graziano Delrio who also has cabinet responsibilities for sport.

No! There's a bid process to select the American city who's going to represent the United States at the 126th IOC Session. USOC (United States Olympic Committee) sent letter to more than 30 cities, including NYC. I read an article that they wanted NYC or either LA to bid for this American bid (not the IOC bid) so it can compete with other cities... And as of the Paris vs NYC (if NYC were to be elected to represent the US) that was clearly my opinion , as I was responding to the previous comment.. Some people need to chill out, this is all speculation after all.
