The USA had them in 96 so what kind of comments are these? The olimpics are attirbuted to a city not to a nation... London and Paris had them twice and Madrid, well never!

I have voted for Madrid, but my reason is.. the Games did a lot for the development of Barcelona, Atlanta or Athens. So, now is our chance to have a make up in our city (that is developing itself without having games!)..

By the visit of the IOC last weekend and their valorations, i think the battle will be Paris/Madrid. But i think every world city must have hosted a Games at least once, so it should be our time (yes, i know last time for Paris was 1926.. dont repeat it again)..

PARIS, Feb. 7 (Xinhuanet) -- With the high-profile bid race for hosting the 2012 Olympic Games now in the key evaluation phase five months before the vote, Paris officials are wary of being portrayed as untouchable front-runners.

"This is something I've been hearing for a long time," said Philippe Baudillon, chief of the city's Olympic bid campaign. "I don't believe in favorites. It's really a competition. We have to work very hard to get the games."

Paris is competing against London, New York, Moscow and Madrid in the race. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) will select the winner on July 6 in Singapore.

Ever since the five finalists were picked last spring, Paris has been considered the city to beat.

Paris has paid its dues after losing bids for the 1992 and 2008 games; France successfully hosted the 1998 World Cup; Paris staged the 2003 track and field world championships; the City of Light offers all the attractions of one of the world's favorite tourist destinations.

But Paris is reluctant to shoulder the No. 1 contender tag, mindful that previous favorites have lost. Rome was beaten by Athens in the vote for the 2004 games.

"I don't believe in a lot of these things," Baudillon told the Associated Press in a telephone interview. "We have five major cities. If all the five cities are here, they are not here for nothing. They are here to be the best."

Speculation about the race has escalated since the IOC evaluation commission began its month-long inspection tour of the five bid cities.

Madrid was the first stop last week. The panel will next visitLondon from February 16-19, followed by New York (February 21-24), Paris (March 9-12) and Moscow (March 14-17).

Baudillon, a hurdler in his youth, says he doesn't pay attention to what his competitors are doing.

"When you try to check what happens around you, you can't be the best," he said. "It's the IOC to choose and not anybody else.The IOC will decide on the best technical bid. We want to be the best technical bid," the French was quoted by the news agency as saying. Enditem

I'm agree with kony. Madrid Vs Paris. Madrid has the best technical bid and Paris had TWICE the games Vs Madrid none, but Paris tried it three times and Barna was in '92.
We'll see...

A big NO to New York and London as long as their leaders keep violating any form of international law.

Paris/Moscow/Madrid is fine to me.

Are you stupid, France and Spain violated international law by having troops in Kosovo. The Kosovo operations were not sanctioned by the UN, it was illegal in international law. Russia doesn't exactly have a great record treating the Chechens, or recently by interfering in another soveriegn states elections.

Use you head before you write things down.

And anyway isn't the Olympics meant to be about sport. Thats why there will be in China (gross human rights abuses) have been in Moscow while it was fighting a war in Afghanistan.

funny prizemazda...when in another thread i called you "stupid" you were all shocked and you said i was being rude because of that...now it's you who accuse others of being stupid...

so i guess the best thing to do then is to post here the answer you made to me after i said you were stupid :

By the way, London is seen by many around the world as a unique mix of history, peoples and cultures.
it's all here

it all shows how shallow and hypocritical you are...

Anyone else bored with morons spouting cack about this!

Its between Paris & London. Bookies never get it wrong. There favouring Paris at the moment and im Agreeing with them. They dont deserve it, but thats the way it go's.

For once however, I would just like to see the British support rewarded now and then. Its a shame but at least its close enough for a couple of hundred thousand to make the trip!

If you dont come on these threads to be liked, then the least you could do is not come on these threads and become a di*k.

I can tell you one thing that is certain.The olympics is most certainly about making money.Alot of it.Especially with those fat corrupt members of the olympic commitee.Sport takes second place by miles.
