One city will be eliminated in first round. Secound round will be for four cities. Winner getting olympic games. Highest possible it will be New York.

Coth what is the impression of Moscow's bid in Russia? I was wondering as in Britain it seems like they have written off Moscow already, unlike with the other bid cities, the media here seemed to virtually ignore the IOC's visit to the city!

Man, remember shortlisting? Moscow was one of three outsiders, but Rio was leader. Rio - eliminated, Moscow passed to shortlist. Same will be in final vote. Moscow is just stereotypically putting down. But it is actually have excellent bid and guarantees.
After visit - IOC said - Moscow is not an outsider.
Main pluses of bid.
- All sport arenas in one city.
- Almost all sport infrastructure already built and need just for some updates.
- High quality of sport infrastructure. We don't need for promises. We can show it now, what we did.
- Excellent transportation system.
- Olympic River conception.
- Successful big sport events in past (like Olympic games in 1980, Young Olympic games in 1998, many world championships, in near past, in near future and in present, like 2005 Figure Skating Championships in time of IOC visiting)

Hosting the Olympics in Moscow would be a great thing for Russia's economy, but I just don't think their bid can top New York, London, or Paris.

London Tour announcement delayed

Tour director Leblanc is expected to announce London's involvement
The announcement that London will host the first two stages of the 2007 Tour de France is to be delayed to avoid damaging Paris' 2012 Olympic bid.
It was hoped an early disclosure would boost the English capital's chances of hosting the Olympics.

However, with the IOC verdict due on 6 July, Tour director Jean-Marie Leblanc wants to avoid harming the Paris bid.

"We have no desire to betray the Paris bid, which we would do if we made an announcement now," said Leblanc.

Leblanc is expected to confirm that London will host the prologue and the first stage proper of the 2007 race.

Freeman supports London 2012 bid

Australia's Olympic heroine Cathy Freeman has given her support to London's bid to host the 2012 Games.
Freeman, who won gold in the 400m at the Sydney Olympics, was in London for the start of The Queen's Baton tour for the next year's Commonwealth Games.

And Freeman expressed her views to London bid leader Lord Sebastian Coe when they met at Buckingham Palace.

"I want London to win the 2012 Olympics. I've already voiced my support to Lord Seb Coe," she said.

London is up against Paris, New York, Madrid and Moscow for the right to host the Olympics.

And Freeman believes London can learn from the Sydney Olympics and from Melbourne's preparations for the 2006 Commonwealth Games.

"From behind the scenes, being retired as I am, team-work is really important," she added.

"It's a tough challenge, and that's how it should be, but it is so worth it.

"Staying in touch with the community is really important too and understanding what people want.

"Getting inside people's hearts and capturing their imaginations is a lesson so worth learning."

The head of the Melbourne Games, Ronald Walker, has joined Freeman in praising the London bid.

He admitted that the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester was a benchmark for Melbourne.

"We learned a lot from Manchester," he said. "I think Manchester was the underpinning claw for your bid for the Olympics.

"You deserve to win the Olympics. I'm helping Seb Coe, myself, in certain countries and you're the best country to get the Olympics and I hope you do get them."

Why is this posted in the stadium and sports arena section? It has nothing to do with stadiums.

I posted it here, merely because this is where the more sport loving people come to view things about the Olympics.

I didnt want people coming up with stupid posts, which was likely to happen if I put it in for instance the City V City forum.

Hope you appreciate this.

I must admit I like the heart Paris made out of the S2, but London's logo is the only one that really looks modern. Madrid and Moscow didn't even try to come up with something decent, it seems.

Mine would probably be, in order ...

London
Paris
New York
Madrid
Moscow

London's looks the most modern and elegant, Paris is very colourful but looks a bit to childish something which they did on Word Art, NYC's is a bit more unique as they've used an iconic building, Madrid's is a tad plain and unimaginnative and Moscows ... well Moscow's doesnt incorporate that blue boxy area its just the Red and White logo, which to me is really, really bland.

i actaully quite like new york's one except for the words which look a bit too informal for olympics. it's more unique compared to london which doesn't really represent anything about the city. that's a bit of an old trick either - having something which kinda wraps across the letters.

^ I thought the ribbon was suppose to represent the Thames. It's really funny how NYC is the only one that doesn't say Candidate City.

NYC
Paris
London
Madrid
Moscow

I think its a bit more unique then having the Olympic rings though. I mean its putting a different perspective on things.

NYC's is very clever. if only it had a bit more sharpness to it.
