1984 - 23rd Olympiad - Los Angeles, California, USA
1988 - 24th Olympiad - Seoul, South Korea
1992 - 25th Olympiad - Barcelona, Spain
1996 - 26th Olympiad - Atlanta, Georgia, USA
2000 - 27th Olympiad - Sydney, Australia
2004 - 28th Olympiad - Athens, Greece
2008 - 29th Olympiad - Beijing, China
2012 - 30th Olympiad - To be selected in 2004 (New York, Paris, London, and others are bidding)

So, if in 2012 it wont be an european city choosen then Lisbon has pretty good chances in 2016, and as beijing will host the 2008 games then lets just forget any games for asia until 2020, mostly probably for 2012 it will be NYC, but the world hates the USA so much that it could be a plus as to show the world that the USA are so ******* nice guys that they even host a peace event!

i apologize for saying stupid people think so but to be honest i will be in singapore in july and madrid will need more then 58 so about 60 members of the IOC to vote for madrid to win
i dont think that 60 members believe madrid is truly deserving after barcelona 1992
oh and i noticed it is a certain type of people who start to use bad language or get violent when somone has a diff opinion and i suppose u are one of them who instead of expressing a decent and convincing response u use bad language in a poor attempt to show me that u are right but which actually reflects very little about your argument and more about your lack of brains

this is my opinion i hope u cud construct one as well

Paris will win
I want London to win and believe they should for many reasons which i cannot say on the forums and which has to do a lot with what goes on in the background and what many people dont see about some host cities as to what they have done in the past in terms of bidding which i was unlucky to see
Madrid has the best technical bid
New York has the most exciting bid and possibly the strongest financial backing
Moscow is a lost cause they shud withdraw
London/ New York will have the best opening ceremony!!

so now randy construct a sensible argument which relies more on your thoughts than ur bad language to convince me and oh i wont **** off im here to stay, deal with it

Paris is "rebounding" since 1986...

Even while having the best bid, BCN would hardly have got its Olympics, had it not been for Samaranc, so...

I agree they are rebounding since 1986 and jacques rogge wil def have a major influence when cape town bids the african bid for 2020 olympics i really hope buenos aires wins in 2016 or perhaps toronto .... Cape town could be tought to beat if buenos aires goes up against them in 2020..

I can't believe that these are the cities under consideration. Bringing the Olympics to London or New York would entail massive costs, security issues and traffic jams like you've never seen. Paris and the others wouldn't have it much easier.

I say keep sending them to smaller cities with less congestion--if you've got to have the bloody things at all.

It would be a joke if New York got the games seeing as Vancouver is hosting the winter games just before.

I do vote for Madrid, of course. I donīt think NY bid really has the full support of Newyorkers. London, humm, I have lived there for 3 yrs. It would be a joke to give the Games to a city with such a poor public transport system. London underground and commuting trains simply A) are closed B) on stryke C) they just donīt work. Paris is the rival as it seems. Iīve been there three weeks ago. Prepare ur wallet if they get the Games ( 15 € for a roundtriop to CDG Airport??!!! it costs 2€ for the same trip over here!!! and with a far better train!!) Besides, Paris remains beatiful, rainy, cold and with a fabolous marketing around, so I guess they stand a big chance. But if the Games are given with the audience best interests in mind, we should all
be enjoying Madrid sun in 2012.
