Rio won't organize the Olympics, especially after 2 years after the Football World Cup.

LOL, The Olympic Comitee, never gives the olympics to country who just hosted something as big as the Football World Cup.

Your point is absolutely not valid. History shows that FIFA don't really care what the IOC does and vice versa:

- '68 Mexico City, '70 Mexico
- '72 Munich, '74 Germany
- '94 USA, '96 Atlanta
- '98 Nagano, '02 Japan/South Korea

Good point, but in all those cases the games preceded the WC.

Rio Wouldnŕt make it on time, with building venues.


If they started building olympic venues before Soccer World Cup, , it will make the city look ugly because of the constructions and the construction would cause traffic.

In the 2 years after the WC, that would give them enough time to build anything.

Ιf they decided not to have a world cup venue in Rio, and have the venue in another city, everything would be fine.

Rio should bid for 2020 or 2024

you're generalizing and simplifying a lot. If the construction stops during the world cup as per FIFA rules and they don't use Maracana as an Olympic venue then I don't see the issue. Rio has many venues place from the Pan-Am Games.

I will be surprised if Chicago doesn't get the bid. Just my (bias) gut feeling.

A lot of people said they'd be surprised if Paris didn't win....and that was a week before the vote! We're two years out, haven't seen most of the bids in detail yet, and anything can happen in that time.

That said, Chicago is the early favourite, and the city I'm supporting after London.

Chigago´s Olympic Stadium doesn't offer anything new. As I said, Maracana stadium is a classic one. Chicago essentally looks like a modern copy of it, but with short roofs.

Prague's stadium is ugly as well as Madrid's. Doha's stadium is beautiful, but too small to host the olympic games.
