Where did you get that idea from? France and Britain are just as wealthy as the US. In fact Britain and France would probably put more money into an Olympics as it is more of a national celebration rather than a regional one...ie once they get the olympics they arent gonna get it 20/30 yrs again (as is the case in the US it seems).

Its my understanding that Britain had more fans in Athens than any other country apart from Greece of course!

I think the IOC will take note of that!

I thought the US games were more profit focused. Anyway the expected money spent is less in NY than London and Paris I believe.

As I can see, at this very time, Madrid wins the poll. Thatīs all I can say. Despite of the individual opinions, Colectivity says Madrid will host the games.


My personal opinion:

I live at this time in Paris (although I was born in Madrid), and I see both cities as the top final competitors.

Certainly, I canīt see Moscow neither NY winning the games, not yet. Their bid is just far far away from Paris, Madird and London ones, almost in every aspect considered, apart from Hotel capacity. London could be if they relax a little. I mean, in Paris, and also in Madrid, London its seen to be playing unfairly....

Between Madrid and Paris, Iīd like to give my vote to Madrid, (if Public Mass transportation is a strong part of the bid, Paris stinks, Iīm sorry, but its more than a opinion, itīs the true). In the other way, Paris is just so charming, that I know the match is really complicated for Madrid.

I donīt care if Barcelona or Atlanta held the games in the last Century. I just look at each city, despite of the precedents. Thatīs my opinion....

how is london playing the bid unfairly?...i think the french have to look at their decision to hold back the announcement of the pre and 1st stage of the tour de france being held in the UK before saying anything bad about the london bid team! as for relaxing....we dont relax because we want it so much...its effort mate!

originally posted by sparks in the uk forum

- Construction has finally begun on the new arena that will sit inside the Millenium Dome with a planned opening date of early 2007.

- The capacity will be 23,000 making it the biggest arena in the UK.

I always think that the millenium dome, was ideal for a great arena, finally they started this proyect.

a question for the brits???? Is the other mayor arena ( + 15,000 capacity) in the London area???

by the way I voted for London because i think it will have the best venues, for its history, and many other factors.

Madrid might be doing well in this poll but in reality it's between London and Paris. Looking forward to see the Games at Stratford, then. (no way I'll fly to France for them, but London, definitely)

i still don't understand why you are so sure about the thing is about london and paris, when the IOC just say something totally different. i think you should show more respect for the others cities, not only madrid, just new york and moskow.
maybe you are gonna get a great surprise in july, i hope so...

Greenwich arena 6k next to dome, to be moved to elsewhere in uk

Hockey stadium 1 x 15k and 1 x 5k, olympic park

Horse Guards parade beach volleyball 15k temp, central london

Regents Park baseball 10k reduced after games, softball 8k reduced after games, road
cycle finish 3k temp...all central london

Royal Artillery Barracks shooting 7.5k temp but moved to new location after games, central london

Hyde Park 3k for end of triathlon temp central london

EXCEL 4 arenas between 6 and 10k, almost central london, seating dismantled for excel to carry on.

Lords 6.5k seating for archery, almost central london ,seating part of lords stadium

4 multiuse arenas at olympic park 2 will stay and 2 will move to diff part of UK

Velopark bmx 6k and velodrome 6k both stay at olympic park

Mountain bike 3k weald country park close to london temp

Broxbourne canoe centre 12k permanent, just outside of london

Aquatic centre 20k reduced to 3.5 k after games, olympic park

Wimbledon many many K's permanent, redeveloped centre court roof and court 18 i think, permanent, west london

Eton dorney rowing, 20k, reduced significantly after games as its a school facility

plus the expansion of football stadia across the UK plus horses at greenwich park (gorgeous), weymouth and portland for all the sailing shenanigans which is easy to get to from london,

plus a plethora of training venues especially in Birmingham where plans are afoot to turn Bham University and Warwick Uni campus into holding village so athletes can use facilities at the NEC the NIA, alexander stadium, indoor athletics institute, both Uni sports facilities, plus villa training grounds and numerous other venues across the country.

sounds rather good doesnt it!

If London gets it, they're going to reduce the stadium from 80k to 25k after the Olympics? That's just stupid IMO
