Well done all cities! I tried to watch as much as I could of the live bid presentations this morning (which wasn't a lot because I was out at 6am for work and back for 12)

Moscows video presentation was beautiful, some of the concepts where well deservant of becoming a reality, I think its a shame they left the competition first.

Yet, naturally.. I am soo excited, proud and jubilant of our win!

Also, to say this was political is possibly the worst excuse to chose, If it was political, London would of been out FIRST! We won due to hard honest work, stability and legacy.. end of really.

Javier. You really shouldn't be so bitter.

I wasn't criticizing the Madrid bid. All I said was that, according to reports from journalists and IOC members of several nationalities, London made the best final presentation today. Paris, by contrast, played it too safe. And Madrid didn't do quite enough in their final presentation to make up those final few votes, despite a strong late run.

I have great sympathy for Paris (who haven't held the Olympics since 1924 and who have now bid unsuccessfully three times recently). I also have great sympathy for Madrid (who have never held the games) but the fact that Spain held the Olympics so recently (Barcelona 1992) probably counted against their bid.

And while London has held the Games twice before, we only held 1908 because of the eruption of Vesuvius and we took over from Rome at the last minute. And we only held the 1948 Games at two years notice in a bid to help the world recover from World War 2. On neither occasion had we bid for the Games and on neither occasion had we had time to prepare and plan fully.

I won't even comment on your accusations that we "stole" Madrid's ideas or that the vote was politically motivated because they're not worth my time and effort.

Suffice to say, commiserations to the unsuccessful bidding cities. I hope you all make successful bids in the near future.

And I hope that London will prove worthy of the trust that has been placed in it.

Its just not the same as every other city. It actually has different styles of architecture. No other city can compare to Londons wealth of styles.
birminghamculture, The win for London came down to what I predicted to you some weeks back, and you told me to jog on.London has beaten Paris by 4 votes, where do you think some of them came from.Anyway, cheers and good luck from Australia.

Luzhkov: Moscow will bid for 2016
Москва намерена побороться за Олимпиаду-2016
6.07.2005 16:33 MCK
http://www.strana.ru/news/252837.html

МОСКВА, 06 июля - Москва будет подавать заявку на проведение Олимпиады-2016. Об этом, как сообщили в Заявочном комитете "Москва-2012", заявил мэр российской столицы Юрий Лужков.

"Мы не расстроены, наоборот, мы убедились в том, что Москва поистине современный и быстро развивающийся город, способный конкурировать с крупнейшими столицами мира и организовывать важные международные мероприятия на высочайшем уровне. И чтобы доказать это, мы будем бороться за право проведения Олимпийских игр 2016 года", - сказал Лужков после объявления результатов голосования на 117-й сессии Международного олимпийского комитета (МОК) в Сингапуре. Юрий Лужков убежден, что Лондон сможет на достойном уровне провести Олимпийские игры 2012 года. "От всей души поздравляем Лондон и уверены, что там пройдут незабываемые Игры ХХХ Олимпиады", - заявил он.

Лужков также выразил убежденность, что, несмотря на неудачу в борьбе за право принять Олимпиаду-2012 Москва будет развивать спорт и городскую инфраструктуру. "За проведение Олимпийских и Паралимпийских игр 2012 года боролись очень сильные соперники, и мы гордимся, что принимали участие в этой гонке. У нас появился значительный опыт, и мы научились следовать высочайшим стандартам МОК, - отметил он. - Москва пообещала развивать спорт и городскую инфраструктуру вне зависимости от результатов голосования, и выполнит данное ею обещание".

В первом туре за Москву проголосовали 15 членов МОК, Нью-Йорк - 19, Мадрид - 20, Париж - 21, Лондон - 22. Во втором туре, в котором Москва уже не участвовала, Нью-Йорк набрал 16 голосов, Париж - 25, Лондон - 27, Мадрид - 32. В третьем туре за Мадрид был подан - 31 голос, Париж - 33, Лондон - 39. В итоговом четвертом туре голоса распределились следующим образом: Париж - 50, Лондон - 54.

Hooray... I just went to Trafalgar square for my lunch break to see the result, ******* brilliant, I am sooooo pleased.

The legacy this will leave for East London is enormous and will seriously spur the government to get on with improving the transport infrastucture.

Code:
Paris 		21 	25 	33 	50
NYC 		19 	16 	X 	X
Moscow 		15 	X 	X 	X
London 		22 	27 	39 	54
Madrid 		20 	32 	31 	X
as visible here, most votes from moscow goes to paris and madrid in second round. some votes from nyc to london.

I assume thats because we left a legacy that is mostly appreciated compared to Russia's attempts at degrading most of Eastern Europe for decades??? Hell I suppose if Mongolia or Italy went in, they would most likely also win

Face it Coth, Moscow was always the lagging party - every source said that and not even Putin's last minute 'I can speak English' desperate attempt didn't work.

My declaration on London 2012.

London should understand that Olympic games is an event of international importance. It is not just games for first world. Then, UK should cancel visa system and welcome all funs. The transportation system should have signes on, at least, all biggest languages: Chinese, Spanish, Russian, French, German etc. The prices should be compatible with BRIC, second and thrid world countries. That everyone from the world will have possibility to visit it, not being bankrupt.
