Oly push not in Dan's plan

Don't expect Deputy Mayor Dan Doctoroff, head of New York's failed 2012 Olympic bid, to be carrying the torch for the 2016 Summer Games.

"I've dedicated a long time to this and, at this time, it's very difficult to foresee any more," Doctoroff, who spent the past 11 years pursuing the 2012 Games for New York, told the Daily News yesterday. "2012 was the right time. You had all the right forces coming together. It's going to be very difficult to put it back together again. We had everything in place. This wasn't our time."

Doctoroff said there's no timetable for an official decision on whether the city will pursue the 2016 Games, but he said yesterday that a bid is very unlikely.

Last week, London upset Paris and was awarded the 2012 Games to London. Paris officials also have said a 2016 bid is unlikely.

Well its hilarious how you ppl think the city of your choise is gonna win the bid for the Olympic games, i gotta say i've seen many stupid comments here.
IMO there are only a few cities able to win it:
Madrid
Paris
Milan
Sapporo
But still many years to come and see what happens.
Just don't say that a city like Lima Peru has ANY chance to win at all. Think!

Dubai is rich and could host the games, this is the IOC's chance to host the Olympics in a new part of the world. If they bid I don't think the IOC would miss their chance to host the Games in the Middle East.

The article I posted yesterday says that NYC isn't sure yet if it will try to get the 2016 Olympics, though it's too early to tell right now.
