SF To Be Named U.S. Finalist For 2016 Olympics

San Francisco will be named a U.S. finalist for the 2016 Olympics, NBC11's Raj Mathai exclusively reported Monday.

San Francisco will be one of two, possibly three finalists for America. Los Angeles will also be named a finalist, Mathai reported. Chicago could also be named.

Houston and Philadelphia were two of five original candidates that will not earn finalist spots, Mathai reported.

A U.S. Olympic Committee spokesman, Darryl Seibel, said Monday evening the elimination of Houston and Philadelphia from the pool of finalists is not official, saying the committee has not ruled out any of the five cities.

An official decision could come within the next two weeks, Seibel said.

When U.S. Olympic Committee Chairman Peter Ueberroth visited San Francisco on May 18, he said the committee may not even advance a U.S. city to hold the 2016 Games.

San Francisco has never hosted the Olympic Games.

The city competed for the 2012 summer games but lost out in the domestic competition to New York City. New York City, in turn, lost in the international competition to London.

NBC11's Raj Mathai will have more on his exclusive report tonight on the NBC11 News at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Its his opinion, whats wrong with you? If Monterry do get it, you can rub all in his face. & please dont drag 2010 into this, thats Soccer World cup, totally different from Olympics okay, & let people doubt, just like how many doubted that the new government in SA would obolish Aparthied & run the country properly, the same people who doubted that SA would win the Bid in the first place.

Monterrey's webpage is in spanish, because that's what they speak in Mexico, just as Fukuoka's and Tokyo's webpages are in japaneese.

I think this has to do with the fact they the IOC only allows you to promote your bid at this point nationally, so unless a country's official language is english, we won't get to see web pages in english, even though they are olympic pages.

Well, I did not know that. If that is true, that would explain it. Though It sounds stupid and I would certainly try and create an other unofficial website in english. Otherwise people wont get the full use of it. What if a smal country of only 10 million people who only speak their language wanted to host, and could only do it in their language, even if it was only for a time....

Monterrey news

Well I think this type of forums are good to comunicate and get to know what the cities plans are, untill they are allowed to do so in their own webpages.

So as far as Monterrey I'll add you this last comment I mentioned in another forum of the 2016 olympics.

On a radio interview yesterday at the 1510 Radio Station (government owned Radio Station) the Monterrey 2016 organizers explained how the city is already improving their infrastructure despite the selection of the city as the host for the Olympics.

Here are a few examples of the projects that are currently taking place.

For the organization of the 2007 FORUM of Cultures, event that the city is holding on the months of september, october and november, the city is doing some major changes in infrastructure including, adding to the Parque Fundidora Park an old land owned by the Peñoles company. This land will now be named as Fundidora Park II, and it will include an artifitial lake and the continuation of the Santa Lucia River. This Park now connects the Macroplaza at downtown Monterrey with the Fundidora Park with a river crossing the whole area. This site will be used as the venue for the Triathlon competitions for Monterrey 2016. They are also building a new center for exhibitions, adjecent to Cintermex building (Monterrey's main exhibition center) both buildings will be used for the Media Press Center at 2016. Inside the Fundidora Park is the Monterrey Arena with a capacity of 17,000 spectators. It is the most technological advanced facility in latin america of its kind, and will be used as the venue for Gymnastics and Basketball.

Here's a link for you to see what the event is about, and what they are building already.

http://www.monterreyforum2007.org/

INDE, which is the Government of Nuevo Leon Sport Department is currently restoring Parque Niños Heros (which is adjecent to the University of Nuevo Leon, public university) The restoration includes major modifications on the Velodrome, the archery area and the Tennis courts including 2 Stadium courts. This park will be used as the venue for the sports of Archery, Shooting, Cycling, and Tennis.

The University of Nuevo Leon will finish by the month of october their New Aquatics Center. They claim it will be the finest in latin america. This new center will be the venue for the 2008 World Youth Swimming Championships. The University is also building a new Arena with a capacity of 15,000 or 17,000 spectators. This venue will be used for Volleyball for the Olympics.

The Regiomontana University is building a new Gymnasium with a 5,000 capacity spactator for their new campus at downtown Monterrey, really close to the Macroplaza. This venue will be used for the competitions of Badminton for the 2016 olympics if Monterrey hosts the event. This university is owned by CEMEX the 3rd largest cement company in the world, and one of the companies with huge interests in Monterrey hosting the olympics in 2016.

Finally the ITESM, which is the most important private university in latin america, is building a new Aquatic Center. This site will be open air, and will be able to suit the Swimming events as they will leave space in the project for the Monterrey 2016 organizers to be able to put removable seats for a capacity of 15,000 spectators.

1992 Barcelona
2016 Spain again? No way!
