London is hosting the Olympics for the third time. Why not LA? Los Angeles is one of the best sports cities in the US if not the world.

But if LA doesn't get it, I would love to see the Olympics in Chicago. Or Rio.

LA's biggest weakness ironically, is not that the LA84 games were bad/not good, but that they were great, financially and otherwise, and will always be remembered. That will count against LA if it goes up against Rio and others.

Even though I'm only 23 and was barely a year old for the 1984 Olympics, one of the biggest problems of the LA Olympics (thank you wikipedia) was that since the former Soviet Union staged a revenge boycott and didn't compete in the 84 Olympics (The US and other nations boycotted the 1980 Olympics in Moscow), that the competition at the LA Olympics wasn't as strong as it could've been seeing as how the US and the Soviet Union were the 2 true global superpowers (sports and otherwise).

LA also had a problem in 1932 manily due to the fact that the Olympics were held during the Great Depression and also due to the fact that at that time, Los Angeles was in a remote location tucked far in the corner of the US. I can't imagine what European athletes went through taking ships across the Atlantic, then a train across the US to LA.

Anything can happen from now and 2016 (in this day and age, 9 years is not a long time), but I hope that the political nonsense that has plagued the US ever since 9/11 and ravaged it's global image would have long since passed and people from all over the world can come together and enjoy the 2016 LA Olympics. And if not LA, then anywhere else. Be it Chicago, Rio, Dubai, wherever.

But 2020 belongs to Africa. It's time for Africa, the birthplace of the planet to host the games. Nairobi 2020.

Yes I rather to see US to host any Olympic games in any US cities that haven't host it before. I am tired of seeing some cities repeatly host it more than once. I think every major city deserves to have the turn to host it.
