Any city really, But Not New York- that is the worlds worst city for the Olympics. Its too squahsed up and ugly conretized- they could've at least chosen a city needing re-generation because its a lie to say everywhere in America is up to amazing high standards.
New York would be the worst olympics ever.

I ve voted for Madrid, but I m afraid that Paris will win.

NY, London and Paris donīt need OG to keep on beeing world major cities..

The cities that donīt have that status need to improve constantly. That s why I think in Europe it must be cities like Budapest, Istanbul, Warsaw, Lisbon, or Madrid.

Poor? look up the word in a dictionary please. If you mean Portugal does not have a national income as high as some other european nations, then yes that is obviously true. To say that the stadiums' costs influenced the portuguese negatively is total nonsence!!! The Euro2004 was a national project that embrased 90% of the population, that brought in tourism revenue and capital gains that highly exceeded the construction costs involved. Some other road/highway projects were speeded up mainly because the soccer tournament caused some thirst for new development and modernization.
Exs. At this moment there are 4 cities that have begun or will begin building there light city subways (Coimbra, Porto, Almada, Oeiras), one thousand km of highways are being built, new International Airports in Lisbon, Beja and Porto, new high speed (Bullet Trains/TGV) lines and obviously many new 4/5 star hotels.........and obviously we are getting ready to bid for the 2016 games ....our work has already begun!

Yes - this is what I'd call a poor country!

What an f..ing idiot?! I won't even bother with such comments.

Anyway, I hope NYC gets 2012 so that Lisbon could aim for 2016, but I think a more realistic bid could be made for 2020.

i still laugh at how people think the athens velodrome which was an open air one and taht got a new roof plonked on it is better than a fully indoor velodrome.....

cape towns velodrome might not be better than athens but we dont need curtains to keep the wind and rain out our venue is indoors i mean athens coukd have at least ensure that the roof fitted onto the venue...without spaces around the velodrome

It was in jest mate!!! Don't take it so seriously! I do admire your optimism and persistence in trying to sell the Cape Town games. You're doing a great job for them. And I mean this!!

Mo Rush please come to Athens and see why the f*cking velodrome is not only beautifull but also 1000% functional and see how these f*cking curtains works.Do you think that it is accidental that it belongs in top3 velodromes of the world?

Mo Rush, I hate to break it out to you, but I think Cape Town's bid will rival with Lisbon's in 2020. The main candidate to Portuguese prime minister in Portugal's elections in February, has cast his doubts wether Lisbon should hold them in 2016. To him 2020 is a more probable date. Yet, he will be in favour of preliminary testing and research to be able to find out which year will be the better one for bidding.

All for the glory of the French republic, rather than for the glory of the Olympics. It would be yet another Grand Project to make the French feel good and important about themselves.

Voted for London not because of political reasons but for its ingenious stadium design.
