Absolutely true: Further, the Olympic Games are awarded to cities not countries. I agree that this is a very badly worded poll.

Chile is a country, Japan is a country, Portugal is a country, and last time that I checked on a map Italy was too. I suspect that most of these cities and countries haven't expressed interest in the idea of hosting the 2016 Games. I imagine that Moscow may bid as it has bid twice and been rejected and Istanbul may also. Istanbul would be a good choice as it is a crossing point between East and West and is a meeting place of Islam and Christian culture. My vote would be for Istanbul. Plus as an Australian we have a soft spot for the Turks, they are wonderful people whom our country has a long and deep association with.

New York is still trying to get the Olympics in the future. The Jets stadium that was going to be built is now not going to be built. However the Mets are going to build a new stadium that will be done by 2009 and will be able to be expanded as an Olympic stadium that can host track and field events.

Probably, lets just hope we dont see a repeat of the awful atlanta games. And lets hope NYC doesn't lie their ar$es off to win the bid.

Atlanta, a black mark in Olympic history.
