I hope a Asian city, or even a European city gets the games....then Toronto would have a much greater chance in 2020.

A European city shouldn't get it in 2016. And the games (no matter what others may believe) are bound to return to the US/Canada in either 2016 or 2020.

Give it to an African, or South American city.

USA has had too many Olympics, as has Europe. Give someone else a go.

A European city can't get it anyways, with London in 2012. Its got to go to New York.

Thats true. And I would like to see an Olympics go to South America, Africa, Middle East before anyone else gets it. The reason why America gets so many though is because those are the biggest money makers. It may kinda stink that it is a factor but it is a big factor to be sure.

2. Just in case you don´t know... Mexico, USA and Canada will integrate the North American Community in 2010. This is something similar to the European Union. No borders, no restrictions, same currency.

Capisci?
What? I have NEVER heard that?!?! HAHA

I hope for Dubai, would be really special. If it gets to the US, both Minneapolis and San Diego are interesting choices.

Japan just doesnt seem to enthusiastich about these things know,but who knows maybe in some years that will change. Japan is always developing, but not as much now as it was before?

India is also interesting . My choice goes for Dubai though...

I'll support Capzilla and Mo Rush. South Africa would be a great bidder for the 2016 Olympic Games. For the first time the Olympics would come to Africa, and I think this notion alone would support the South African bid. In my opinion, Europe and the USA have had the Olympics more than enough - I'd love to see them go to South America or Africa. To .::G!oRgOs::., I'd love to be next to you when Cape Town actually wins the bid Greek hosting the Olympics every 10 years? How unfair and boring would that be! Cape Town all the way!

good thinking...i actually dont think giorgios has anything against cape town, it was just perhaps a knee jerk attack to anyone or any person from a city that doesn't believe the 2004 games were perfect...if cape town did win a bid , it would need to work close with the sydney organizers as well as the london organizers and perhaps beijing too, i think one of cape towns biggest challenges will be its organizational capacity and learning from past hosts so that the unnecessary can be avoided...hopefully support from sydney, london and hey even athens would be a great help...south africa will learn a lot from the 2010 soccer world cup, the 2011 rugby world cup if it hosts and other events leading to a possible olympic bid...

The only nation south of the Equator that would be an interesting Olympics would be Brazil or Argentina, and neither of them can afford it right now. I suggest we keep it in the northern hemisphere until one of those countries straightens it's economy out. We had the Sydney games, thats enough of a concession the the bottom side of the earth.

Greece should throw some shrimp on a bicycle and parade out some M-TV entertainers and then Valeroso would be in rapt attention. Some call that enteraintment, others call it non-cerebral amusement. Whatever floats your boat.

I can't see Europe hosting it again, straight after London's 2012 Olympics.

Tel Aviv is just not safe. Delhi is no where near the minimums, too dirty and undeveloped. No offence.

I think Tokyo will be the best city to host the Olympic Games. Paris too, but I think it wont make a candidature, go France!

U forget that the games if held in delhi will not be held in the old city of delhi, but probably new delhi..which is actually not bad...its quite clean and modern.... and the fact that infrastructure is improving drasticially and moserinazation is happening at an unimaginable rate...we are also getting the Commonwealth games in New Delhi which requires jst about as much development as the olympics so afte the commonwealth games in 2010...we wil have developed enough for olympics at least

What is that dude smoking? There is no way the US would ever open its borders to Mexico or integrate its currency with the weak peso and looney.
