In South Africa, wouldn't it be Cape Town bidding, and not Johanessburg?

I think you'll have a better chance of winning after you have hosted the Commonwealth Games in 2010(as long as it all goes to plan), like LDN had with Manchester 2002, so a 2020 bid is more sensible.

I think SF/New York, Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town and Tokyo have a good chance of being shortlisted.

Milano will run too for 2016 Olympic games...

But I don't think after London 2012 Olympics will remain in Europe: probably we will have the first Games of history in Africa...
I go for Johannesburg!

Wow, I didn't know that they had an article on wikipedia for the 2016 and 2020 Olympic contenders.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_Summer_Olympics

And what is this? Made up perhaps?
"It is widely expected that in 2016 the Games will return to the United States, due to an unwritten convention that every 20 years the IOC reciprocate for the vast payments by the NBC media group for Olympic coverage—funds that largely bankroll the IOC."

The following sites are reportedly working towards bids for the 2016 Olympic Games (this list has been obtained from sources within each campaign):

Africa
Undetermined city in Kenya - GamesBids.com reports 12 January 2005
Undetermined city in South Africa - According to agency reports (likely Cape Town considering their past bidding)

Detroit (United States) - According to local media, Detroit may bid either for the 2016 Olympics, or the 2018 Winter games.

Asia

Delhi (India) - Announced by IOA on 27 December 2003
Dubai (United Arab Emirates) - According to 1 March 2004 report

Hengelo! The Netherlands have this ghastly immense financial reserves (the economy shrunk but assets grew much bigger than the shrinking shrunk ...) and we're going to spend it on tearing down an awful town of 80k and substitute it with an Olympic village

Transport is already excellent
-the EU #4 airport at an hour's ride
-a closed military airport within its borders
-the A1 motorway connecting Amsterdam and Berlin
-quite a bit of room left - space is precious in NL

Finance is no problem whatsoever - winking at Montreal here
and Hengelo already holds track and field tournaments plus it hosts the current #1 cricketclub in that province

ok, then; Almere perhaps? and call it Amsterdam since it's only a few miles to the east of Amsterdam

anyway, we'll just buy the olympiad and leave Tokyo and such sulking in their deficits
