Which indoor arenas are going to host basketball/volleyball/handball matches in your city (the final four:Madrid, Rio, Tokyo and Chicago) if it were chosen to host Olympic Games in 2016?

I don't know, Rio's plan looks a little confusing. It's like walking somewhere and having 20 different arrows pointing you in different directions, because all the arenas are right next to each other. Other then the water sports area of course, which looks good. I have not seen Madrid's plan or Tokyo's yet, could someone post pictures of them went they get a chance? Thanks.

They aren't all right next to each other. Basically, Rio's venues would be spread across the city in various clusters, what you see in that render is just part of a cluster.

At this point, from a "which would be the most memorable Games" point of view, Rio or Chicago look like the most appealing to me. Tokyo has a superb technical plan, but something about the whole bid just says "blah."

The bid committee for the 2016 Olympics released Tokyo's candidate file to the public Friday, pledging the city would put on a reasonably priced, compact and environmentally friendly Games.

According to the Tokyo 2016 Candidature File, half of the tickets would be priced at 5,400 yen and under, while 95 percent of the facilities would be located within an eight-kilometer radius of each other. The bid also promises solar panels will be installed on the main stadium.

Meanwhile, a recent Yomiuri Shimbun poll found public support for Tokyo's bid rose two percentage points to 74 percent from a year earlier.

According to the documents, about 7.3 million tickets would go on sale at prices--expected to be as low as 2,000 yen for some events--that one senior Tokyo metropolitan government official said would make "many people feel they would want to go." The tickets for children aged 12 and under would be priced as low as 1,000 yen. However, tickets to the opening ceremony and soccer games would not be included at these prices, with tickets for the opening costing between 25,000 yen and 150,000 yen and those for soccer matches 35,000 yen.

The bid committee claims Tokyo's plan is the most compact in Olympic history. It also promises to provide quick access between facilities, with the outer lanes on the Metropolitan Expressway's loop lines to be set aside exclusively for athletes and staff during the Games.

The event is scheduled for 17 days from July 29. The main stadium, where the opening ceremony would be held, would be built in the Harumi area to seat 100,000.

The stadium's roof would be equipped with solar panels that would be capable of generating 11,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity--equivalent to the daily consumption of 1,000 households. Official vehicles would be electric cars and fuel-cell cars.

About 310 billion yen has been set aside for the games, which would include the cost of building temporary facilities. Permanent facilities, including the main stadium, are expected to cost 242 billion yen. All costs would be covered by revenue from sponsors and ticket sales, the committee said. The event would generate an estimated 2.94 trillion yen for Japan, 1.55 trillion yen of which would be for the Tokyo metropolitan area.

In The Yomiuri Shimbun poll conducted Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 nationwide, 74 percent supported Tokyo's bid, while 21 percent opposed it. The support rate was up from 72 percent in February 2008 and 70 percent in February 2007.

The poll was conducted via face-to-face interviews on 3,000 eligible voters with 1,782, or 59.4 percent, giving valid answers.

By age, people in their 20s were the most supportive, with a support rate of 81 percent, followed by those in their 60s, with 77 percent. Even the least supportive group--those aged 70 and older--had a support rate of 65 percent.

By region, the support rate in the Kinki region was 79 percent, while the figure in the Chugoku-Shikoku region was 77 percent. In Tokyo, 62 percent supported the bid, and 34 percent opposed it.
