I've just checked, and Wikipedia reckons there are 38 countries and dependancies in North America...

How many are actually capable of hosting the summer games though? A great deal less than in europe I'd expect.

I can't believe the time has nearly come to find out who will indeed host the 2012 games.. I still really want London to win, but all the hype I had months ago during the promotions and bid launches I've deliberately let go of...Mainly because I'd hate to maintain the hype and excitement and then to be dissapointed, so in a way I'm kind of claiming defeat to the Parisian games..Although there is still hope.. Either way, I'd like to go watch the games in whichever of the cities is selected

I think people should stop this argument. It's pretty pointless if you look at the latest BidIndex. Looks like NYC is now out of it completely.

LON +1.48 64.88
MAD +0.30 61.41
MOS -0.19 49.58
NYC HLT --.--
PAR +0.30 66.18

Hmm i don't trust that Bid Index and i dont think it is taking into accounts all the politics involved in the IOC decision.

NYC is not out of it completely if you think that then your completely insane. It says HLTed for the moment because of the stadium issue but thats being taken care of sinc ethey are building a new yankee stadium and supposedly a queens stadium too.

It wasn't that people were actually against the stadium, it was that they didn't want to be the ones paying for it since the NY Jets were going to be the primary tennant.

If the Mets stadium project works, I am fully behind it and our countries bid. (It would be awesome to hold the baseball finals in the New Yankee stadium!)

Unfortunatley(sp?) I think the latest problems with New York have taken away any chance of winning. It shows that there bid is very unstable and I don't think the IOC wants that instability.

Wimbledon on now.

Make it through 2 weeks no trouble, great weather...right before the IOC decision.

Out support for Tim is always amazing so that might impress the IOC right before the vote.

If it's not what's written in NYC's official bid, placed months ago, this stadium you speak of is virtually meaningless. IOC members are going to vote on the plan submitted, which is an olympic stadium (& future Jets home) on the west side of Manhattan. NYC can't go moving another stadium proposal to Queens, it's too late for changes.

Sorry NYC

Rogge Says African Country Able To Host Olympic Games
Posted 11:44 am ET (GamesBids.com)

International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Jacques Rogge told a press conference in Accra Ghana that an African country is capable of winning the bid for the Olympic Games following South Africa’s impressive performance during its bid for the last Summer Olympic Games.

He said Cape Town placed third behind Greece for the 2004 Games, and with little effort there is no doubt that an African country will be able to host the event in the future.

Rogge ruled out the possibility of applying the system used by the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA), which allowed only African countries who bid for the world cup to bid for the Olympic Games. According to him any country that wants to host the Olympics must bid for it.

NEW LONDON STADIUM PICS............



1-After the Games, the stadium would be reconfigured to provide a permanent home for international Athletics in London.

2-The spacious concourse area provides an attractive environment for spectators to enjoy the atmosphere.

3-Spectators in the purpose-built Athletics stadium would enjoy an unrestricted view of the whole running track.

4-Every seat in the stadium would enjoy an unrestricted view of the action.
