The question for the poll should be " Who do you think shall get the 2016 Summer Olympic Games?"

Because it will be cool a South American Games, but this is the real world, Chicago has better infrastructure, safety, transportation etc.. than Rio..

Chicago is truly one of the preeminent transportation hubs of the world. The City's extensive rail, transit, and motorways infrastructure, combined with the world-class O'Hare and Midway International airports, makes Chicago one of the most accessible cities for local residents and International visitors

Running a marathon in Doha in August or any summer month would be about as fun as contracting Ebola. The heat has got to work against any Middle East country getting the Olympics.

Aesthetics are subjective. Things like transportation, safety, accesibility aren't.

Well they can host it on spring or autumn (fall) times as it is cold, especially spring.

"Corle" Winner logo



GALLARDÓN LO ANUNCIÓ Y SÓLO FALTA LA APROBACIÓN DEL COE Y EL COI
'Corle' representará a Madrid 2016

'Corle', el logotipo presentado por el diseñador gráfico argentino Joaquín Mallo, ha sido elegido por un comité de expertos para representar a la candidatura olímpica de Madrid 2016. Los madrileños habían podido votar a los nueve logos candidatos (tras la eliminación de uno de los finalistas por plagio) en la Plaza de Cibeles, seleccionándose los tres más votados para la elección final de los expertos, que se han decidido por este logo, que representa una mano con los colores olímpicos que encierra una M mayúscula.

Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón, alcalde de Madrid, presidió el jurado de treinta personas, con representación de las tres administraciones, que determinó la elección del logotipo definitivo. El alcalde explicó que tiene "un carácter amigable, con una mano acogedora" y destacó que recoge los colores olímpicos y la M de Madrid, ofreciendo una idea de "la representación multicultural" de la capital.

Una vez elegido, el logotipo será trasladado al Comité Olímpico Español y al Comité Olímpico Internacional y, en cuanto esté aceptado, se incorporará a la imagen de la candidatura española, aunque el alcalde advirtió de que podría sufrir algún ajuste gráfico.

Wow, Rio is SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!

I don't think that Madrid is getting the Games... It's a pity, but I'd bet for Chicago or Rio probably...

I think I'm voting for Rio, only to tease Alex537
