I would love to see Doha host the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, they did such an awesome job with the Asia Games, some saying they were the most successful Asia Games ever. Although they may have to hold them in Spring as to avoid the hot temperatures, but Beijing is holding their Summer Olympics during spring and not summer in 2008. So if Doha did it in 2016, it shouldn't be a big deal.

But does anyone know if Doha could hold the capacity in terms of visitors and infrastructure to hold a summer olympics?

Yes, there's already a lot of construction going on and 39 hotels more under construction.

Visit the Qatar sub-forum and see the constructions - here

I think Chicago will get it but i would like to see South America have a chance.

Not much competition there i dont think. Madrid would have beeen a strong contender but it would be the third time in a row for a european city to host the games and therefore it is unlikely.
