Agreed. BTW, I'm sorry for Moscow that it got out in the first round. IMHO, you deserved the Games much more than Paris or London. Moscow was my third choice after Madrid and New York.

I hate sore losers. I bet if Paris won it you'd be saying it was the best bid without political motivation and as has already been noted...The UK in Iraq wasn't seen as popular, if anything and politics did lead to the vote - London would not have won.

Dont get me wrong, Moscow is a great city for the Olympics, but the bidding was pretty pathetic.

C'mon lets be fair and not gloat! Each city shall have its time - i do feel a little bit sorry for parisians, not Chirac tho!

The stadium shall be converted into a 30,000 Athletics stadium after the games.

Yep. hopefully they will sort out the stands arrangement tho, not keen on some of the renders showing the stands seperated.
