omg rio still in and Madrid
if Madrid have it then i can go to london ones cause i live in the UK and mardid is only like a 2 hours flight something like that so either way ill be saying the IOC will go madrid cause of already built venues 85% infact and if do then it would be game 32 held in Europe. i think Rio could just looses it we just have to wait and see the results but man Tokyo my best one to win was out oh well at least they carry on giving us future technology then im happy :P

If Madrid win it, Paris will be pretty annoyed. They'll have to wait ages before having a reasonable chance of getting it.

Not really disproportional.

Great games, certainly, but no better than Sydney.

Back to topic - I hope Rio get it.

About time that South America hosted an Olympics.

It would be wrong for Europe to get two consecutive Games.

I totally agree with you on Rio de Janeiro to win the OG.

But Europe is not going to hold 3 in row:

2004: Athens
2008: PEKING
2012: London
2016: ... (Rio, I hope).

I want so much Rio to win, I don't know what to do. I am very nervous and crying, lol. Let me drink some water, one hour to go.

It would be three if the Winter Olympics is included (Sochi 2014).

Come on Rio! Was very surprised to see Chicago out so soon.
