New York is not my favourite, but it will go to gain the event! This city is headquarter of the capitalism, system that gives the norms in the current world.

Paris 2012 Promotes Discrimination-Free Games
Posted 12:27 pm ET (GamesBids.com)

The integration of the disabled into society has long been a priority for French public authorities. This public preoccupation is one of Paris 2012’s founding objectives in its bid to host the 2012 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games. A Paris 2012 press release says that Paris aspires to host “an exceptional 60-day event” to promote participation in sports free from discrimination.

Paris 2012 has set out a roadmap for sustainable development, the Agenda 21, through which it laid the foundation for its concept. There are four main objectives to Agenda 21 with regards to the disabled – to modify public opinion to develop a positive and supportive civic attitude towards people living with a disability; to improve the living conditions of disabled people; to integrate them into the professional and corporate sectors; and to promote the development of accessible sporting activities.

In order to make the 2012 Games a catalyst for integrating the disabled, Paris 2012 developed a concept that unites all athletes during the 2012 Games. A single committee will be in charge of organizing the Games; the Paris OCOG. Paralympics athletes will use the same competition venues as those used by able-bodied athletes. All the athletes will be housed in the same Olympic and Paralympic Village. By providing all athletes with optimal amenities, accommodation, training and competing conditions, Paris 2012 says it fulfills its commitment to promote accomplishment in sports.

Paris 2012 also plans on building a major intangible legacy for the disabled in France. By 2012 all train stations offering transportation to competition venues will be accessible to the physically impaired along with seven metro stations located near strategic transfer points. The entire Paris bus network will be fully accessible by 2012.

MADRI IS BANISHED OF THE DISPUTE!
Your opinion on Madrid is based on the actitude of a bunch of hooligans in a football match???? You are COMPLETELY IGNORANT! You consider 3 million people racist because of 300 stupid *******s??? Madrid is everything except a racist city! In fact it is well-known for its tolerance to foreigners: we've got 300,000 or so, and numbers are still growing!
Don't start with these damned comments again! Then you all say it is the Spaniards fault!

OK...I left it....I tried to get on with it....One spaniard has commented on it its over....now if another spaniard comments on it....It WILL be your fault if an argument starts!

And yes....It was alot more than 300....but thats the end of it



Maybe this G8 thing could help Britains bid...put Britain in a good light....we care about the world...I know its not a government thing but still!

The British puplic also dotated more money to the Tsunami aid than any other country...and im not talking size for size either.

London's heritage is a winner ?...

If london were able to organize World Athletic Championships 2005, it would have been a winner, but surely not with its past. Imagine if Paris takes its olympic heritage like London, Paris is where modern olympic games were reborn...

rational crazy > the oldest stock exchange of the world is in Amsterdam, New-Amsterdam (New-York) only follows its mother in capitalism... eheh

EarlyBird> there is nipples and sex (firemen that launch water on street) in Paris 2012 promotionnal movie, i can not post it here, it can shock americans after Janet Jackson and also children... lol
