I don't know why people vote for Madrid. If Madrid got the games that would mean that 2 out of the last 3 Olympic Games that were held in Europe, were/will be hosted by Spain. Seems kind of unfair to me.

I voted for none of those citites. All of those cities have already proven to the world that they are world-class, so they need no more recognition. The Olympics should be given to a city that is right on the cusp, like Budapest, Hungary or Porto Alegre, Brasil. These cities are great places, but they just need that injection of fame and recognition that the Olympics would give them to make them truly world-class. Look at Barcelona if you want an example! Of course, I live in Atlanta, which had the chance to be world-class in 1996 when the Olympics came here, but I would say we blew it!

The only one "thick headed" here is you, Noir. The Olympic games existed in Greece for 5 centuries! The modern games are only ONE CENTURY old. If they were held in the home country, maybe all the crap like rampant commercialism, graft and IOC corruption would end and we could focus on international athletics? You could still rotate the winter games if folks like you feel it's essential to showcase various countries.

2010, Canada
2008, China
2006, Italy
2004, Greece
2002, USA (so not for New York)
2000, Australia
1998, Japan
1996, USA (so not for New York)
1994, Norway
1992, France (so not for Paris)
1992, Spain (so not for Madrid)
1988, Canada
1988, South Korea
1984, USA (so not for New York)
1984, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Yugoslavia (only one real olynpic games in EE)
1980, Moscow (broken games, because of USA and Co)
1980, USA (in New York state, so twice not for New York)


Fact against London - they have OG twice - in 1908 and in 1948. Like New York state have it twice too in 1932 and in 1980.

Moscow never have real games.

All cities have excellect bids, but to be fair 2012 must be in Moscow.

I don't think they should be in Greece every summer Olympics. While a good thought, overall it wouldn't go. I agree with most of Noir's thoughts....


But I do think Greece should host them every so often. At least every 50 years or so.... (like ever 12 Summer Olympics or something).

London has had their chances.

Twice. Paris has had their chance. I agree with Moscow. Eastern Europe has been ignored for too long. If they can have it in Beijing, they can have it in Moscow.

It doesn't matter whether they were broken or not. It's a fact that it has happened 24 years ago, so NO for Moscow as much as for New York too

About that fact against London. Do you understand that would be non-sense not to let cities that once hosted the olympics to host them, say, for a century. In 2012 will be 64 years after the last olympics, so I don't see your "NO" against this city

So my vote goes for London

obviously Paris if the only city able to host the games

1. Paris
2. London (brits are willing to corrupt voters)

the others cities can't win.
NY after Atlanta 96 : it would be a shame (fed up with america)
Madrid after Barcelona 92 : impossible (too expensive for such a poor country)
Moscow : an other undevelopped country to host the games after Beijing, it's a joke !

Don't be stupid.... Paris capital of the world forever
