well looking at that list and considering some are not official bid citys for 2016 you really have to re-rig the list to what is known. BA argentina will not despite the poll simply because of the history of financial problems in that country. San Paulo I dont think has made any gesture towards the olympics yet whereas Rio has been making noise and is hosting the Pan american games and has the possibilty of hosting the world cup in 2014. The olympics in 2016 is going to the americas there is no doubt as the last time was 1996 in atlanta. With sydney, athens, bejing, and london having the next four additions the big Tv money people with NBC will want the games in the eastern time zone or somewheres close. That could be Rio, Santiago Chile or any major city in the americans including los angeles, houston, chicago, new york. Argentina is not getting the games anytime soon. The IOC wants the games in South America , Africa and a Muslim nation soon. Look for
Rio 2016 and then either South Africa with Cape Town in 2020 or Abuja, Nigeria if they win the commonwealth games bid for 2014. A sucessful 2014 CWG's in Abuja would set that country up for the 2015 bid finals for the 2020 games. The mandate of having a muslim nation and an african nation host soon could be achieved with Abuja, Nigeria
Cape town South Africa to me would be the more desired place by far.

Madrid To Bid For 2016 Summer Olympics
Posted 11:15 am ET (GamesBids.com)

According to media reports Madrid, who failed in its bid for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, will announce Thursday that it will bid for the 2016 Summer Games.

Madrid’s announcement July 6 coincides with the date last year the city learned it had lost the 2012 bid to London.

Alberto Ruiz-Gallardon, Mayor of Madrid, will make the announcement. He said despite the fact London was chosen to host the 2012 Games, “the Olympic spirit continues in our city”.

International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Jacques Rogge said this year that European cities would still have a chance to host the 2016 Games. “If a bid is strong enough, the idea of rotating the Games between continents will not come into play”.

Rogge has pretty much done anything but to come out and say to Madrid, "you need to bid for this"...Pretty odd to see such and andorsement, but I guess it worked...Might be a sign that the IOC still havent forgiven the US for Atlanta and dont see any other valid candidate at the moment... Still, europe 2 times in a row might be a hard sell...

i think eventhough casablanca would get torn apart by the IOC they should probably just going ahead and bid someday, nothing stoppping them except the $500,000 fee.

MADRID.
we will decide tomorrow if we go for the 2016 or 2020 games. Anyway, Madrid has a great project ready to go, with half of the work just made...so, i hope we will get it.
As Roge said, the geographical question about repeating city in the same continent is not so important, and after the 'strange' votation in Singapore, i think Madrid deserves it, maybe not in 2016, but sure will be soon
