I really don't think USA should have the Olympics again within 20 years since the last time they hosted them!! There are plenty more places around that deserve it more.

No, Argentina will support Brazil's bid for the 2014 World Cup .

The most populous city in South America is Sao Paulo, with 18 million people living there . Buenos Aires has 13 million people, but I don't think that the IOC choose cities because of its populations.

Brazil has in these days economical stability and including good infrastrucutre, the major problem here is urban violence in both Rio and Sao Paulo , which is associated with gangs who deal drugs.

I don't know about that, but maybe gaucho can inform us about that.

But the winter in Buenos Aires is not like the winter in Europe , it doesn't even snow !!! If Buenos Aires is choosen the Olympic city of 2016 , most probably the event will happen in September, just like in Sidney 2000 .

No lo veo posible, existen problemas mucho más importantes a resolver en la Argentina, antes que ponerse a pensar en como resolver un problema que todavía ni siquiera existe; recién hace 3 años que la economía crece, vienen de una crisis que aún hoy perdura, el país no tiene credibilidad internacional, no respetan los compromisos económicos asumidos; como para ponerse a pensar en mayores gastos; sinceramente creo que sería muy bueno tener los juegos en Buenos Aires, pero no lo veo posible en la actualidad, a lo mejor dentro de 20 años si la economía mantiene el ritmo de crecimiento actual o al menos un crecimiento sostenido; y el país se decide a tener la seriedad necesaria en sus gobernantes que le permita ser visto como un país en serio y de esto último hoy están a años luz de lo mínimo imprescindible.

Monterrey is a warm city with an average temperature in the 90s, but MTY can host the games in September like Sydney 2000, when the temperatures are better...

The Atlanta Olympics were very good, especially for American athletes. I really liked watching the games along with many other in the record breaking viewership. Many joke about the "Ghetto Olympics" but Atlanta was quite memorable and fun (anyone forget the torch lighting?). The 2002 Salt Lake games (the final in US) also went amazingly well.

NBC/GE has a unwritten rule with the Olympic committee that the Olympics must be held in N. America once every decade (or close too) because of the ratings power N. American Olympics generate. I don't blame them, because the US is one of the largest countries and contributers to the games.

Having a double helping of N. American Winter Olympics might delay another American summer game until 2020. Miami likely won't make the shortlist of cities due to other major cities having more resources, facilities, and history to woo.

Okay then. Have the next Summer Olympics in North America in Canada!! The last time was Montreal......... Though, with Vancouver hosting the next Winter Olympics, that may be a problem as well.

I think the next American city to host the games should be either New York or Chicago.

You were the one who said 20 years after the last one, not me.

And besides, as I have mentioned before, the US needs to host once every 20 years or so, because of the money....So, they have to really screw it up, not to get it in 2016...
