I think London's main pitfall is the problem of some venues being quite far away from each other. The tube is generally reliable, it does its job - with one more line being built (the East London Line), the channel tunnel extension via North East London not to mention the existence of the reliable Jubilee Line and one of Europes best performing railways - the DLR transport should now be less of a problem than the IOC intially claimed. The British Press seem to have nothing better to do than moan about transport on slow news days, its all british cynicism and should be taken with salt.

Out of all the bidders - London is the city with the most languages spoken within its perimeters than any other 1000sq km on Earth - surely this must be appealing to a world event?

No one seems to have mentioned anything about the paraolympic bids.

The rest of world outside of Spain is saying the race is between Paris and London with Madrid being the outsider, and New York being the spoiler.

I got the impression that the IOC visit to London went spectacularly!!! But legolas, it may be exactly what your experiencing, and that Paris, London, and Madrid are all putting on fantastic visits making it seem like we are all holding teh highest momentum.



There is an awful lot of negativity surrounding New York's stadium problems, that will make them appear poorly managed when it comes to the IOC grilling.

I am sorry to disagree with you but from what I hear here in Switzerland (although Switzerland is not the rest of the world), it looks like it is between Paris and Madrid… and the French news give me the same feeling…

Paris 1900 and 1924

London 1908
In 1906, there was an eruption of Mount Vesuvius, near Naples. The Italian government needed money to rebuild the zone situated at the foot of the volcano and asked that the Games of the IV Olympiad, which should have taken place in Rome, be given to another city. Despite the lack of time, London put in a bid. This edition of the Olympic Games was one of the best organised that had taken place at that time.

London 1948..again not won in bid but awarded anyway.

Moscow 1980

wonderfull pic, Munch.
I think the impression of the world is that the fighting is between Paris and Madrid. Not only by Spanish press, also in other news of the world.
well, In july we'll see!

Paris is full of intolerant, anti-semitic, narcisist people. Not a place to hold the Olympics. Anywhere else is ok.

- Madrid seems to have the best folder but...Spain has allready hosted OG in 1992.
- London seems a bit forward than Paris and New York.

Ive read countless forums articles and polls on the 2012 olympics and i truly believe this will be between NYC and Paris...third times a charm or is it?

Paris is in the lead, london is catching up and needs 15 votes or so to catch up but it has the momentum...it could come down to 5 or so votes from the african continent..

Yes, but Atlanta hosted the Games in 1996, only 12 years after the LA Olympics...
