It was a good bid for the first time ever. I am looking forward to see the bid of Baku for 2020 Olympics I am sure this time Baku will be more prepared

The short list report.

http://multimedia.olympic.org/pdf/en_report_1317.pdf

Tokyo 8.6, Madrid 8.4, Chicago 7.4, Rio 6.8

Like in 2012 Madrid gets the highest qualification in 7 out of 11 issues involved in the procedure. At least its bid is always a very good one.

By the way, I think Chicago or Rio will get them.

I'd prefer it to go to Rio because the Olympics have never been to South America. Chicago would be a very able host city as well. As would Tokyo but I'm afraid Madrid is too soon after London to expect 2 European Olympics in a row. Europe need not be greedy here, there have been more than enough Olympics in Europe over the years.

1896 Europe
1900 Europe
1904 North America
1908 Europe
1912 Europe
1916 World War I
1920 Europe
1924 Europe
1928 Europe
1932 North America
1936 Europe
1940 World War II
1944 World War II
1948 Europe
1952 Europe
1956 Oceania
1960 Europe
1964 Asia
1968 North America
1972 Europe
1976 North America
1980 Europe
1984 North America
1988 Asia
1992 Europe
1996 North America
2000 Oceania
2004 Europe
2008 Asia
2012 Europe

Europe - 16
North America - 6
Asia - 3
Oceania - 2

1- Rio
2- Tokyo
3- Madrid
4- Chicago

I really wanted to see these games in Doha. It's a pain it's not gonna happen...

And Rio, of course, is a great candidate, the only 'problem' is the WC. I guess it'd be better to host the 2020 olympics.

Tokyo beats the scenery of Madrid, Chicago and Rio, even if half of the city got destroyed by Godzilla.

Why is Madrid serious with this bid?
If they get it we should make another IOC ourselves IOC=International Olimpiad community

which will soon be better then the original IOC making them close their doors
