I think it would be great to have the game in the middle east. It will open up a whole new market. If not in Dubai or Doho, why not Baku, Azerbaijan. That would be good.

Unlike Athens, you are ready, he continued, referring to the Greece capital that hosted the last summer Olympics

Brazil? Never!

By any chance you went to any game played in Rio 2007? or you're based in what the media said?

I think that Europe, Asia and Oceania have no chance.
There are not African bid: OG 2016 will probabilly take place in America.

Rio would be a greath host but Brazil will host WC 2014.
So, I guess that Chicago will win easially.

I don't understand why Buenos Aires didn't bid...

True. But on the other hand the IOC and Rogge has strongly urged Madrid apply in 2016 aswell.


But I am also on the Chicago. It will make it 20 years since last time and acording to the unofficial rules, America is due this time round...

Madrid has started work on its aquatic centre and its structure is taking shape. The olympic stadium is underconstruction...they arent favourites but they will be at the top of the evaluation report.

I'd like to see Rio or Madrid. The US have hosted far too many Olympics, so it would be nice to see the Olympics stay away from there for a while - there's a whole world out there. Besides which, the last US Summer Olympics was a complete shambles and widely acknowledged as one of the worst ever. It showed complete disrespect to the Olympics, and many IOC delegates have not yet forgotten that. Chicago still has a reasonable chance of course, but the Atlanta experience has definitely tarnished things somewhat for the US, especially other 'middle America' cities.

I was too young to really remember, so could you elaborate on what made it one of the worst? (besides the bomb, obviously) How did it show disrespect?
