Besides, to me that Athens "A" is more of a flame on a lamp rather an 'elongated' form of the torch.

That was just the 'bid' logo. And when Athens won the Games, it changed to the Official Chosen Host logo.

USA 2014 - RIO 2016

I think Brazil and the US will soon come to an agreement about this too events.

Brazil has no stadiums to run the world cup accordind to FIFA statements. To build the project stadiums will cost a lot of money to the brazilian people, considering the corruption here.

Althought this matter, Rio has conditions to run the olympic games. The structure is all done and, yes, Brazil can make it safely, like in any other international event here.

To loose the olympic games for Chicago will be pity . One more time the games will happen in the US, for the happiness of those who doesn't see the olympic games universal as it should be.

And since it ceded 2014 to the US, 'hopes the US will reciprocate and let Chicago also defer 2016 to Rio.

Altogether a very 'radical' scenario. I like the first half.

Can one country give there World Cup event to another like that? Kinda defeats the purpose of the whole election and bid process all the other cities put in to get considered, and then the country who wins hands it over to a country that wasn't even in consideration. I would be pissed.

But if Brazil want to be a world class country and host these events, they need to face the fact that they need to build these stadiums and centers needed to host them. In the end it pays off and boosts the economy.

Thats why I am under the impression that should Chicago win the bid, they will use their original torch logo, not the current star logo.

Home and originator. IOC allowed to Greece to officially adopt the "Olympic Games Welcome Home" slogan during the 2004 Games.

The most beautiful part of the Atlants Olympics is the Logo



But looking that up makes me realize why the Olympic council has asked Chicago to go with the star. The 2 torches are too similar.

Yea, sure, but the birthplace is something more than simple home I think...and every greek trully believes that the games are the biggest offer of Greece to the rest of the world, no matter the city they are held.

You're splitting hairs and you know it. Of course what they mean is 'birthplace.' Would 'hometown' be OK?
