Well, I'm still thinking that Madrid has a lot of posibilities. Right now, Paris is the best positioned, but Madrid will increase its posibilities each day.

Look this articles. It isn't Spanish ones. Look that the "best" articles are about Madrid...


Si Madrid gana los juegos, haremos de ellos los mejores de la historia y nos convertiremos en referencia mundial de las cosas bien hechas.

im sorry to say that althought madrid has put in an excellent bid, it certainly wont get the games after barcelona, it might come third or even second but in my opinion it wont be able to convince more than 50 IOC members that the games need to return to spain, london is gaining momentum and will do so until july 6 when the bid will be won by 5-10 votes

So you don't like Paris then NY1.

I hope London gets it, if not then I would like Madrid to get because I am a fan of King Juan Carlos.

Comments from a forumer who has probably never spent more than a week in Paris (if he's ever come here), and has been watching Fox News for too long... Very interesting

Concerning the poll, the London bid is amazing from an architectural point of view, Madrid has a very interesting bid, but I'm French and Parisian so my vote goes to Paris...

Why? Moscow have best bid. But if you ask people about olympic games in Moscow they will say you. Yes Moscow is excellent but I don't want olympics there. Why? - I don't know.

Moscow just have a negative stereotype. That's a main problem.

There is a part of me that thinks this bidding round will end up damaging the IOC. There are so many WORLD cities in this round that there will be some very annoyed cities. Imagine if NYC, Madrid, Paris or London do not get the games, in effect the IOC voters have said four of the best cities in the world are not good enough to host an olympic games. It will put cities off for a long time, and maybe the IOC will be left choosing another Atlanta in the future

pricemazda in any way the vote on july 5th can result in the 4 other cities to be judged as "not good enough to host the olympics" , this is ridiculous

the ioc himself say that this is a very tough competition and everyone knows that all 5 cities will put up a great show

paris has bidded 2 times before, and it has lost...no one came to the conclusion that paris is not good enough to host the olympics...

what lecture of this process do u have excactly, i'm curious to know...

The Guardian says the cities that could be eliminated in the first round are Madrid or New York.
