Hasn't Toronto had really bad luck at getting anywhere in the Olympic voting? It seems that everytime they make into any cuts of cities, they get eliminated.

I think Paris would be in IF they go for it. Maybe not, right (maybe they won't try).

Istanbul... that would be GOOD.

Madrid has a strong chance, I think.





------
other cities in the NEXT decade and beyond .. I think would be: Shanghai, Osaka, Melbourne, (Paris), (Madrid), Istanbul, Cairo, San Francisco, New York, Moscow

I really doubt that a European city will get it. In fact there have been two back-to-back Summer Games from the same continent since 1948 and 1952 (London and Helsinki)! I think the 2020 or more realistically, 2024 will be the next European at the earliest.

OLYMPIC LOSER BACK IN RACE

October 9, 2005 -- City economic-development czar Dan Doctoroff has vowed to work for at least two more years if Mayor Bloomberg is re-elected, hoping to build a legacy that erases bad memories of the city's failed Olympics bid.

Deputy Mayor Doctoroff, 45, admitted in an exclusive interview with The Post that he felt "numb" after the city lost the 2012 Olympic bid — a project he spearheaded for most of the last decade.

Doctoroff hopes to redeem himself by pushing through 66 economic-development projects. But two sources say Doctoroff doesn't have the same passion for his job. "He's in danger of becoming a ghost," one source said. "He's looking for another mission."

Governor's Island off the southern tip of Manhattan might be that mission.

"That is now a major, major focus of mine," Doctoroff said. "What we ought to create there is something that you can't find anywhere else — something that is uniquely New York" Stephanie Gaskell

Dubai would never get the games... it takes more than money for a nation to host the Olympic guest such as Tradition, History and a relatively big amount of people in order to make the games successful

sorry uber-nationalest smussuw, that is the view of a "load of people". Not to mention that most people like a semblence of the respect of human rights for a games.

The only reason why that was overlooked with China was because they have 1.25 billion people.

Dubai's venues are impressive although I don't know if the idea of having all the stadiums in one area is the best (traffic wise and all). But it will have to do more than just that to win with all this competition (much more than what's in this poll).

Rio de Janeiro will be candidate...It's official....And Rio de Janeiro will be favorite, 'cause South America deserves at least one Olympic Games here...Africa deserves too, so the dispute could be between Rio de Janeiro and Cairo or Cape Town....

Even though my Chicago could very well be in it I would not mind losing to any of those three. There all have a lot of beauty to share and wuold make great cities (especially Rio despite the crime). All three have some pretty major issues but the games should finally go south (other then Australia).

I wonder how the seasons would come into play though. The networks I think very much want the games from June-August and would not be happy with a summer olympics during the southern hemispheres witner months. Could those three cities have the games during their winter? I think Rio could but I am not sure about the other two.
