I think London should win this. They have the most ambitious plan, the funding is all in place, we've proved we can host major international events (Manchester Commonwealth Games in 2002) and London's past Olympics were to bail out other countries who couldn't afford it!

The closeness of voting on this forum indicates how tight the race for 2012 wil actualy be perhaps with madrid in a less trong position but i think we can all agree that Moscow will not last past the first round. Then its between madrid and new york and madrid could possibly lose out due to barcelona 1992 but madrid could also go on and new york could lose out, leaving three european cities and no chance of lisbon 2016, so if madrid goes up against paris, paris will win and the race will be tighter if madrid goes up against paris but in all likelihood london will face off with paris in the final round.

BUT... what i hope for is a total shock or suprise
Moscow leaves in the first round
followed by madrid in yound 2
then london drops out in round 3
paris loses out to new york by 5 votes and new york wins
lol

London should definitely get the Olympics. All the other countries bidding have held the Olympics or World Championships recently. I think it's about time a major sporting event came to Britain again. It would certainly be very unfair if Madrid got the games considering they were held in Barcelona in 1992. That would mean Spain had the olympics twice in 20 years, and I certainly don't think they are deserving of that considering the terrible racist abuse England's black football players received in the friendly in Madrid. The UK hasn't had the olympics since 1948 and London is certainly a world class city which deserves the Olympics more than any other city.

Madrid all the way!!
-It's the only big European capital which hasn't organised the Olympic Games yet!
-It has the second best puntuation! ( 8.3, just shortly before Paris => 8.5)
- One of the best tranportation systems in the world, gorgeus infraestructures.........

Paris and London have hosted them twice!! Madrid none! Yes, Barcelona hosted them in 1992 but with that rule New York should have no chance (Atlanta 1996), and it's still a serious candidate to win.!

GO 2M12!!
