to englishkevin: i'm not taking your words as something personal to me, first because i'm not a teenager, and i'm sure is the same with javier. Anyway, even thinking that i'm not english, i understood perfectly what JDRS said, and maybe sometimes i can take some words by mistake, it's not my language. This teenager with 'limited vocabulary' and 'limited thought processes' at least can give his opinions in other language, try to make the same in spanish, maybe your vocabulary ismore limited than mine.
please, just a little respect, or some people will think that maybe teenagers can be more mature than some forumer here.
to the other forumers: sorry for this, i know is nothing to be with the thread, but sometimes we have to put things clear

Well people, I think you better remove Lisbon from the 2016 list, since Portugal's independent avaliating business group has officially informed Portugal's deficit runs at 6,83%. This huge figure, under european standards, enables Portugal to spend its resources on sporting events. Although there hasn't been any official statement from the portuguese government, this is what I unfortunately predict for Lisbon's Olympic 2016 bid.

I can't really bother with you . You spouted off about Wimbledon and you didn't even know it was a Grand Slam tournament . If your English is not adequate don't attempt to use it for a discussion forum until you're able to and do not use it as an excuse . Lastly , don't expect me to speak Spanish . I'm English and I don't have to .

Mo Rush, is that Cape Town stadium going to have a transparent roof, or is that just so you can see the insides of the model?

Well that stadium was one proposed for the beijing 2008 olympics and i have thought it was awesome ever since i just added the cape town 2016 as u can probably tell, the stadium does represent south africa IMO as the open flower could represent our national flower the protea which would make for a fitting symbol.. the stadium roof is transparent, ill post some more pics if u like..


[The design creates an image of a floating water lilly, surrounded by petals and blossoms, emerging in a gently undulating pond.
The stand installations are built for fixed as well as temporary seating with optimal viewing positions. After its dismantling, a very unique leisure park will be developed.
On the "roof" of the stands, offering a grandiose, stairs and elevators access this panoramic sky-garden independent of the internal Stadium function. The 45° slanted, outer glass skin thermally encircles the Stadium and all its exterior functional and circulation areas and creates an equally dynamic and peaceful, outer form.
The lightly inclined roof skin, consisting of transparent air cushions resting on a light, pre-stressed cable roof structure, is unique in this dimension.
The central roof can be completely opened to a diameter of 130 meters. The unobstructed view of the spectator through the transparent roof skin, despite the indoor-arena-quality, is a world-class novelty.]

What a silly and arrogant statement. You could show some respect to people doing something you are actually incompetent in. If you don't have (or rather can't) to speak Spanish or any other foreign language at least show respect to the people trying to speak your.

Technically London is the centre of the world in terms of time (GMT spot, Greenwich) and finance (more transactions that Tokoyo and NY combined) :p

Why does everything on these boards have to turn into an argument?

Because they are so nationalistic they can't see the truth . Because they think they are more important and better than they actualy are . It's called not knowing your place in the order of things .

The London Games will be the first (and only) time a Games has been held on each side of the Meridian line at the same time.

The Meridian line passes through Stratford and to the east of the Olympic village, and the London Games will see events to the west of this in the Park and Central London, and to the east in the Royal Docks.

London has the technically superior and X-factored bid. With 61% of its Olympic facilities constructed or under construction, plus an ongoing support from Government and the Monarchy, a 79% approval rating that is increasing daily, and a population with a passion for sport and general all round support for all nattion's atheletes, a London Games would set the benchmark up there with Barcelona and Sydney.

This is exactly why people like you are not worth bothering with - stupid statements that are quite blatantly wrong . Either you say such stupid things in order to be provocative or because you are stupid . The whole world knows which is the greatest tennis tournament . We all know which one is a movie title .

As regards my comments about English ; not arrogance - truth ! I don't *NEED* to speak another language or *HAVE TO * because my language is the worlds ' and you don't like it .

I have a Dutch partner . I like the Dutch . Prefer them over the french and spanish anyday .
