South America deserves a chance to stage the Olympics. Brazil is an upcoming world power. This is its time to make a grand appearance as one of the big goons on the world stage. Rio should get it.

BTW, Is there any chance that other cities might be allowed to join the race at a later stage? I dont believe another european or american city should be considered so soon. It would really be nice to see new entrants.

I've got a strong feeling that Chicago would clinch IOC vote.

I would have loved to have seen them in Australia again. We did host the "best games ever",, quote Juan Antonio Samaranch.

I just wanted to add that a European city will not get 2016 as London has it in 2012, thoughts are Tokyo, mind you all the cites vying for it are not that exciting.

Shall I repeat the continent rotation is not a written rule to follow for the IOC and that that supposed rule has not been followed many times? You just need to see Europe has repeated organising the Olympic Games several times in a row!

Madrid has got the same chance as the other cities, and even more because of the results it got on the IOC report!

Go Madrid!

They were "MOST EXCEPTIONAL" -- so they were special.

"Best Games" was only silly Samaranch's terminology. Rogge has stopped using that.

Ah, nice comment. I can see a bit of...¿remorse? Well, whatever it is, I don't want to know.




Some people really don't know how to behave themselves. What a pity.

Said the spider to the fly. Sorry to burst your bubble, but for Summer, Sydney overtook Barcelona as the MORE PHENOMENAL Games. Winter is Salt Lake.

As stated by IED, "After putting on probably one of the best Olympics ever, Barcelona has confirmed itself as the ideal context for major international events: conferences, exhibitions, installations, fashion shows and parties all offer excellent conditions for designers in all areas to express and compare ideas, trends and projects. Barcelona is, in short, a city of sensations."

http://www.ied.edu/City/Barcelona/


And stated by the BBC, "The 1992 Games went down as one of the best Olympiads ever, and for once not one single nation boycotted the Olympics"
