With all due respect, India is not considerably more capable then some of the South American countries in hosting the games, or even South Africa, although I would love to see them host as soon as they do so.

Both South Korea and Japan have already hosted the games in recent memory.

I think South America is capable to host the 2016 games and it is time they get it.

Commonwealth games in 2010?!?! I didnt know till now! The only thing I knew about that year's event was that Singapore decided not to bid for it at the last min.

South Africa had put in an excellent bid for the 2004 Games. They finished 3rd behind Rome and Athens and subsequently hosted the World Cup for Cricket.

Argentina is emerging from its financial crisis. It can learn from its failed bid in 2004 to come up with something better for 2016.

Hahaha...nono dont worry. Its because we are now going to destory our national stadium and rebuild the whole area into a sports hub mah.....I think the whole construction will only finish quite close to 2010, and bec of this, they had to push back the hosting of the SEA games too. Commonwealth could have been just in time, but I suppose they realise we dont have enough sporting talent yet to justify it, despite the support from quite a number of significant countries..including Malaysia next door?

Anyway, I dont think they will be bidding for 2014. Not a nice number to us...hahaa. 2018 seems to be very likely thou!

The national Olympic Committee of the bidding city. For example Sydney's bid for the 2000 Olympics was put in by the Australian Olympic Committee and it was the same organisation that lodged failed bids for Brisbane 92 and Melbourne 96.

so if Brisbane wanted to put in a bid ... who makes the initial decision. Does the lord mayor/council approach the AOC or the other way around.
