Brits are more beautiful in spain...what?


Im sure the IOC dont give a hoot over nightlife...

But England/Britain did have the most outside supporters at the WC 2002 Athens 2004 and EURO 2004, Im sure they will care about that.

Sport is like a religion in the UK,

There will be just as many fans at the paralympics as in the able body olympics.

To answer the question on the 1904 event in St Louis, which the thread was locked, that city did host event, but it was the World's Fair not the olympics, though still St Louis is nowhere near NYC just like LA and Atlanta.

(Seems that you can only download and view full size videos if you are associated with news agency - however minature preview videos are free)

So, how will the broadcasting work. Will it be a long - drawn out process where each representative announces their choice out loud, or will it be a quick statement (like a verdict in a trial).

I think Jacques Rogge just announces the winner. I can't imagine the IOC would be transparent enough in attitude to let us see the votes of each member.

On another note, have to say that 'Make Britain Proud' video is one of the best i have seen, with the exception of this board its hard to get the British patriotic about the UK but i think they have just managed...

Indeed, I advise everyone to watch the 'Make Britain Proud' video

I was grinning from ear to ear the whole time..

One thing though, gave the runner the wrong clothing I feel, Looked like an aussie.

If you mean will it be a venue....yes it will be.

It will re-open in 2007 as the largest arena in europe 23,000 seater, and the largest arena in the world (size).

It is also host venue for the 2009 world gymnastic championships.

If the votes for the 2012 games is purely on who is the best candidate, you would have to hand it to London. They have done a wonderful job.

They deserve it, they can afford it, won't be a drain on their people, have the infrastructure and are a country a traveller can easily visit.

You can have the Olympics but not The Ashes!

Its a good thing they found a way to incorporate the dome back into the games. It would have been a real shame to tear it down.
