I think Brazil ruined all hope of an Olympics after the appalling display by Brazilian fans towards foreign athletes at the recent Pan American Games in Rio. Does the IOC really want to see foreigners booed while competing or while receiving medals? Disgusting! The Olympics is about acheivement, building bridges, and applauding excellence in sport, not about cutting people down or humiliating them. Those athletes devoted their entire lives for that one shot at sporting glory, and these people boo them?

Brazil? Never!

It must be a visualization because that highrise on the right side (looks like vibrator) doesn't exist yet. Paste here only real photos if you do not write any more descriptions!

I don't get why the European cities are bidding at all really...surely they understand that they have a veeeery small chance of getting it after London 2012?

because votes are all you need. convince 50 or so IOC members that you have the best bid for whatever reason and you win. Madrid will score top marks in the technical report, ease into the shortlist and from there it could go anyway..if samaranch pulls his weight and half of the european votes go to madrid its not a bad position to be in..rule out madrid at your own peril.
