A commonwealth country. Either Toronto or Cape Town.

Failing that then Madrid.

2016 wont go to europe and neither to asia thats my opinion.the IOC does not use a rotation system, what message would it be sending returning to europe? madrid and moscow must move on....

2008 ASIA
2012 EUROPE
2016

athens can have the games again in ten games time or so as long as the aquatic centre roof gets finished (just a joke)...

(ANSA) - Rome, July 19 - Boosted by winning the right to host the 2009 Swimming World Championships last week, Rome is now considering making a bid for the Olympic Games .

"If the whole country wants it, Rome is ready to put itself forward to host the 2016 Olympics," said Mayor Walter Veltroni .

"The question has arisen after we were awarded the Swimming World Championships. The World Championships will be memorable ones, because everything that is done in Rome is memorable." Veltroni stressed, however, that the city authorities will only press ahead if it is clear the bid enjoys widespread support among the public, and in the worlds of Italian sport and politics .

Pundits believe the capital's bid for the 2004 Olympics was hampered by internal divisions within the Italian camp. Veltroni described losing out to Athens in 1997 as an "open wound that's still sore." What's more, the mayor believes London won the 2012 Games because it was firmly supported throughout Britain .

"The bid can only be made if the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI), the government, business people and the whole country supports it," he said. "Last time I had the feeling the decision (to run for the Games) was not shared by everyone. If we're united behind the bid then great, otherwise it's not worth the effort." Veltroni claims the Eternal City would have a strong case to present to the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Rome's swimming facilities would have already been revamped for the world championships and a series of urban infrastructure projects will be finished by 2016, including two new metro lines. "And we'll also have the opportunity to take ideas and suggestions from London," he added .

Several Italian politicians approved of his proposal .

"Veltroni's appeal for the nation to unite at once for a possible bid by Rome should not disappear into a vacuum," said Francesco Giro who, as a member of Premier Silvio Berlusconi's Forza Italia party, is on the opposite side of the political spectrum to the major .

Daisy Party Leader Francesco Rutelli, who was Rome's mayor the last time it made a bid, also welcomed the idea, but suggested the city wait until 2020. Rutelli argued the IOC is unlikely to give the Games following London to another European nation, so it would be better to focus on the later date .

There have been voices of dissent though. Claudio Barbaro, a member of the CONI Executive Board, suggested Veltroni's proposal was merely an attempt to gain popularity with voters .

"Veltroni knows very well that the geopolitical processes of the IOC mean it is impossible for another European country to be awarded the Olympics four years after London," Barbaro said .

"These announcements just raise expectations that will only lead to disappointment." CONI said it had not adopted a position over the issue, and stressed that Barbaro was speaking for himself, not the committee .

Rome has played host to Olympics once before, in 1960 - the first Games to be fully covered on television .

Those Olympics are best remembered for bare-foot Ethiopian marathon winner Abebe Bikila and a young American boxer called Cassius Clay, who took the light heavyweight gold medal. Turin plays host to the Winter Olympics next February .

I'd like to have the games in Hamburg in 2016. The venues would be in the heart of the city, just southeast of the city centre in a nowadays abandoned port area. "Games at the water".
It would have been in the top 5 for 2012 already if it wouldn't have lost to Leipzig in the national election (the reasons for this national result were not rational but emotional). But as stated before, I doubt that the games will go to Europe in 2016. Anyway, Hamburg will bid also for 2020, 2024 and 2028.

In 2016 Mexico will be part of the North American Community, therefore it will have the support of being in the most important economy region of the world.
