Will athletes in 2012 receive the same treatment to combat the problems of fatigue and heat exhaustion?

What happened in Barcelona '92, in Seville's Expo '92, in the Spanish World Footbal Cup '82, and in tons of other huge events held in Spain? Was there any bomb? NO (as usual in Spain, the security measures were excelent), is any city of the world free from terrorism? NO, is Paris free? NO!

There would be much less ETA attacks if the French police stopped them from stealing explosives!!
So think it twice before posting nonsense like that, there are over 1,000 Spanish deaths caused by ETA

Thats not a flag, its a banner, and personally I think Madrids logo is extremely boring, basically a red squiggle

And what are Seb Coe and Simon Schaumer doing in Madrid, doing some secret recon??

Madrid is not in the running, nice try but they don't really stand a chance against the two giants of Europe, London and Paris
Contrary to history and popular belief, the French won't give up this fight easily. Just when you think they are out of it, they will worm their way back with some snide moves, so watch your back Seb!!

If London or Paris gets the games, they have to be ready incase one of the those Sahara Desert heat waves comes north.

Has anyone noticed how the Madrid logo looks like the Abbey/Banco Santander logo?

How far away from the centre of Barcelona is the Olympic Park?

Because looking at that rendering it on the edge of the city...there are masses of fields behind it
