LA submitted the first US bid for the 2016 games, followed by SF. LA has ALL the stadiums already built, in fact if athens didnt come through, they were going to move the games here. The proposal will be released in more detail in the coming months, but the Village will probably be around USC as a huge redevelopment.

The real possible favourites will be:
1. a US city - that is LA or chicago san francisco or new york if they bid...
2. if an african city bids then cape town
3. istanbul thats if they bid again
4. rio de janeiro and buenos aires
5. a japanese city might bid as in sapporo but asia will host in 2008
6. i doubt toronto would bid after vancouver 2010
7. perhaps one of the 2012 finalists, and another european city

in all likelihood assuming each of these cities bid the top five

1. a us city
2. rio de janeiro/buenos aires
3. cape town
4.istanbul
5. one european city/toronto

Even though it's not world renown. They are building a new airport and infrastructure for it though.

It could be New Delhi... But, it all depends on how well they organize the Common Wealth Games in 2010.

They'll select the city in 2009,and New Delhi hosts the CW games in 2010.
It'll really matter if New Delhi is on schedule or not.

Then maybe New Delhi for 2020. I heard Indian government was so damn keen on holding Commonwealth games in New Delhi that were willing to spend $250 million to outbid Canada.

I hate to burst your bubble, but I don't think the games are going back "down under" anytime soon. As it is, didn't Sydney end up losing money on the Olympics?

Top 3:
1. New York
2. Chicago
3. Cape Town


Chicago Metropolitan area would be nice. New York is too crowded. And Cape Town is a joke!

I agree with that. Sydney was ok, but kind of boring. Australia is too far off the east-west throughfare for most nations. Putting an Olympics there is like openning a McDonalds restaurant franchise 5 kilometers off a new interstate highway-good idea, wrong location.

Rail system undergoing huge expansion to be finished before 2016. Large, top-level professional and college sports facilities all over the metro. One of the top sailing lakes in the US. Lots of locations near Fair Park for new olympic village that would see great use after the games. Rapidly growing metro that could reach 8-9 million by then. Largest city festivals would take place in September when the IOC said a Dallas Olympics would occur. Definitely has the capability to host. Would Dallas be selected? I doubt it, but we are pooling ideas at the Dallas forum already, hoping the 2012 committee will give it another try since the current mayor won't be around to cause trouble again.

amen
