It's funny to see some of the votes though.

The two highest chances are with Rio and with Doha.

No Asian or European country will get it for sure because it is against Olympic tradition to allow a continent to host it so close after each other.

North America has hosted it 3 or 4 times already. The only two regions that have never hosted it are South America and the Middle East.

Rio has a major crime and infrastructure issue to deal with and I'm quite sure it doesn't have the funds or the investment that Doha has.

Doha hosted the 2006 Asian Games and that was considered to be one of the most spectacular events in history.

As for Rio's logo I don't understand it.

Doha's logo is also very unique. It looks like a desert flower (which is usually given to someone as a sign of lasting friendship). It also says Doha 2016 in Arabic. Very special to have the text look like an image like that. Wish it had something more sporty though.

let's use the BIG brain now, not the small one.

It won't be a European or Asian country for the mere fact that history has deemed it so.

As mentioned North America has hosted it many times and the whole purpose of the Olympics is to provide world unity.

It is my assumption that the committee will vote for a country that NEEDS the Olympics as a push to develope.

The only thing I've been breathing is Oxygen, you should try it sometime.

As much as American's want it, you shouldn't put pride or nationalism in front of what is realistic.

Whatever Chicago can spend on the Olympics, Doha can double.

Hopefully the new laws which impose hefty fines and the new point system will get rid of the bad drivers ^_^.

But yes, if you go to iLoveqatar.net you'll see that in the safety section that Qatar is much safer than even Japan.

Of courseeeee ... Its an arabian country


The half problems that we suffer ... ....arabians countries dont suffer.... I dont think that only because qatar have money has more changes to be selectedto host the olympic games


- Weak olympic team , The climate .... If u see.... the olympic games always happen in the same datess and can be impossible to realize games in these dates in Qatar ( It`s only a detail )


Never a begginer bid was responsable to host the gamess.... Chicago, Doha and Baku.... It will be a problem


But 02/10/09.... everybody will know who will be responsable to host the event

I'd take Chicago in the Winter over Doha anytime.

Buying the IOC won't be enough for Doha.

Rio has crime and infrastructure issues but Brazil has a lot of money, and now we have oil too

Rio hosted the 2007 Pan American Games that was considered the best of all, and probably the most expensiva too

Doha's logo is very strange and more complicated than Rio's

Thats what you think, try visiting Doha and view all the construction happening now, just like Dubai. Why not try and visit the new city of Lusial(u/c), just part of Doha which is 9 km long and 5 km width. The country has invested 1 trillion dollars across the GCC and 50 billion around the world!

Qatar doesn't really want to show off saying 'we're the best', its just how you do it in the olympics, every country has a loosing point in the olympics, and you can't consider the Qataris a weak team. For the weather, it can be hosted from September - October, where the weather is at Maximum 28 degrees.

It doesn't have the worse!!!

Its developing rapidly and size and population is booming and the infrastructure is becoming more better, currently it has the sport city and education city, the next extension of the city is the north by 9km. If you want to see the masterplan, i'll post it later. + a further more 800 towers expected.

You can compare the Asian games with the olympics, the Asian games is the second largest multi - sport event after the olympics.

all points are correct there

World Class Road Infrustructure is U/C as we are chatting right now ! World Class Sport Infrustructure is also U/C ! so as thaaron4 said we are building 800 towers and some of those towers are hotels with 230-2200 rooms each and if its not enough for the olympics then cruise ships would decrease the problem.

what am i talking about we already have world class sport buildings that won international awards sponsered by the ioc :

Quote:
Aspire Dome, Khalifa Stadium bag awards

Aspire Zone facilities bagged top positions in a contest for the most beautiful sports and leisure facilities in the world. Aspire Dome, won the coveted second (silver prize) and Khalifa Stadium the third position (bronze prize) in the contest, organised recently by International Association for Sport Leisure and Facilities. Qatar was the only GCC and Arab state to achieve these advanced rankings in the contest which included 88 sports and leisure facilities from 27 countries. These state-of-the-art sport facilities need no introduction as they have successfully hosted the Doha Asian Games in 2006, which showcased the best ever opening and closing ceremonies in Asian Games history. Aspire sports dome formed the nucleus of the Games, where most of the events were held. The awards ceremony is expected to take place in Germany between October 31 and November 2, 2007.
