I think its down to London and Paris now. The others are out of it. Paris has a slight lead but the decision could go either wa.

I dunno i heard it on the news but they might have got the wrong end of the stick - cant find anything about it on the BBC website. If it is true then apart from the athletes village and indoor halls the Olympic Park would be fully built.

Great news. It shows that London's bid has a lasting legacy, providing sport to the capital after the olympics are over.

It would be alarming if you didn't support your only tennis player.

Is the pole at the end, above the TV screen where the flame would go? I would have thought it would be slightly more spectacular. Slightly strange how the stands have big gaps seperating them too.

Hmm.. perhaps they just threw that pole in there to show where the torch would go, and they just haven't gotten around to designing the actual thing yet.

That's actually a pipe leading to a north sea gas vent. When it's lit you'll see it for miles around.

It is a bit odd the gaps in the seating.

I wouldnt be supprized at all if either the reduced capacity version(so they could up the size for a future bid) or another design was built even without the games. Theres been talk of a new national athetics stadium to replace crystal palace afterall and this sounds as good a place as any to put it.

How does the final vote work again, do they phase out the least popular bid down to four, three or two? If thats the case I'd guess who is eliminated before the final vote might deside the outcome. I'd guess for example that if Spain where gone then more european votes might transfer to Paris where as is New York were gone might a few north/central american votes pass to London?

Come back here in 2 weeks FAETON...


Im not saying London will get it, but we and Paris have a much better chance of winning than Madrid.


Any renderings of whate the Stade de France will look like during the Olympics...would also be noce to see where they will stick the olympic flame.

Don't completely rule out Madrid. It's not a bad bid.
