It was the worst because USA made a really market of it. The olympic Park was known as a trade fair market. Everything was being sell. The oppening ceremony was without emotion things like that. It wasnt an OIC standard Games.

It's not so much the bomb that left a bad aftertaste - it's not the organisers' fault that someone wanted to bomb the place (perhaps security should have been tighter, but that's debatable - and it was pre 9/11). What's not debatable is that the transport was abysmal. There didn't seem to be any cohesive mass-transit plan apart from commandeering a bunch of those old yellow school buses that are so prevalent in the US. Unlike other Olympics, many people were forced to use private cars, which resulted in traffic chaos across the city - and as for the buses, a lot of the drivers didn't even know their way around! I remember reading about athletes having to direct bus-drivers where to go. As a result of the transport chaos, there were many cases of Olympic officials, media, ticketholders, and the athletes themselves being stuck in traffic and not being able to get to various games and events on time.

The international media centre was also a shambles - various outlets complained that they had been allocated spaces with no internet connections or phone lines! - and there were problems with accreditations being mixed up or not issued correctly, so that some outlets could not film some games or didn't have adequate time to set up. I remember watching some gymnastics event where the Australian TV crew couldn't get in because they had 'the wrong colour code' on their accrediations, so they ended up televising arguments with deadbeat security guards, until finally some red-faced official turned up to say they were issued the wrong accreditation. At least it was entertaining.

Another big criticism was that the Games were too "crass" or "over-commercial". In this area, I think the criticism was a little unfair because of course the Olympics is a commercial event. Anyone who thinks they're a humanitarian event, put on solely to bring all peoples together, is a little naive.

I'm pretty sure these stadiums are all very preliminary, but based on these renders the one in Chicago looks best by far! Where did you get those renders of the stadiums in Prague and Tokyo?

Like said before all are likely to be very preliminary designs. That said I don't think we should maybe expect the most dynamic awesome new stadium built for a games if judging on these.

I guess from these I like Chicagos best (yes hometown pick) but that is saying something since I am pretty underwhelmed with it and think it could easily be outdone. What the heck is going on in the Tokyo render?

Tokyo is original (a volcano like Fuji Yama) but the grass will not receive enough light.
Chicago is greath.

- Maracana and Havelange are good for football but not for athletics.
- Praha is awfull
- Doha is old-fashionned: looks like old Munich Olympic Stadium.

Why Havelange is not good for athletics? Is the best Athletics Stadium in America, with same material used in Athens 2004

Chicago deserved to host one. They have the beaches, the lake, the river and the skyscrapers as well!

Do skyscrapers and Olympic games have anything in common?
...why did Prague get only 4,4 %?

These were the Madrid 2012 proposals. I assume this will also be used for 2016.

This is what it currently looks like (cap. 20,500):


This was the stadium for the 2012 bid, I don't know if it would be used again in a new bid, and whether or not it will be built without Olympics (for Atletico?). And I doubt if Madrid can get the Olympics in 2016, 4 years after London.
