Sure the logo is not the reason which a city gets the Games. But my opinion is that a good logo sometimes can help the bid.

Rio:
- Awful and amateurish logo?




Are you sure you understood the Rio's logo!
Did you see that inside this heart shape design we can see a yellow sun rising begind the Sugar Loaf Mountain, with the blue water of the sea just below - an iconic symbol of Rio de Janeiro?
This logo, and its representation, no way can be "awful and amateurish" as you sad!

Really? I am biased so maybe its just me but I wouldn't it would be for others. It has a great waterfront and lakefront as a back drop to the games (Rio is perhaps one of only a few cities who does this better), it has a very vibrant musical scene and legacy, is know along with S.F. and NYC perhaps the best resteraunt town in the U.S., has an awesome skyline (which pleases types here), is extremely diverse in terms of culturues and ethncities, has plenty of posh and grit. Eitehr the city doesn't sell itself well (as city Olympic organisers have aknowledged) or the city really is boring to some I suppose.

Brazil and Japan are the 100th anniversary diplomatic relations.

Really?

1. Better then the stadium being built for the games before it
2. Chicago is one of the most exciting cities in the world.

It's either the butt of that Brazilian actress or 2 dolphins laughing.

Did you know that all previous bid logos with "hearts" have never won?

Rio's logo is beautiful. The sunrise, the water and the mountains are so smart

I preferred Chicago's old logo.

Ya, this one was awesome, No one gets the Rio logo until you have it all spelled out for you, to hard to interpret.

I thought it was pretty obvious from the first time I saw it actually. Though I think Chicago's is slicker; and I liked Doha's very much as well.

Tokyo's looks like an afternoon's work in fireworks with all the obvious glow and gradient effects; I don't like it at all. Madrid's has me stumped; I really don't know what to make of it.

Thats the matter. A logo which takes too long to understand it if u don't know what the hell Sugar Loaf Mountain is etc etc its not a good one IMO. A logo must be clear. It must be not a representation of the city ( its is not abaout the brazilian tourism logo), but it has to indicate the connection of the city with the Olympic Games and what the city can offer to the olympics. Maybe I could see Rio in this logo, if I knew the topography of the city, but I can see nothing related with the games. I know its is difficult to achieve it but see the Tokyo logo: japanese tradition in "olympic" colours, it is great.

Madrid in Europe is almost impossible after London in 2012.
Rio and Chicago have best chances considering a continental rotation.

Where will they stage sailing from? What I mean is, which marina will the teams assemble and the boats be launched? I plan to sail my boat there and stay on it during the Olympics provided that Chicago gets them (which right now looks likely). Of course if Chicago doesn't get them that opens up Toronto in 2020 It will take me a week to sail to Chicago and a week back unless I trailer my boat, and that's a possibility, 2016 is at least 2 boats away, so I have no idea what I will have then but it may be too large to tow. I could sail to Toronto in a day.
