And how many people live in the Northern Urals? By most accounts that would make it one of the if not the richest regions on the planet

I will volunteer no doubt if either Paris or London win the bid.

I know someone who was a volunteer at the Paralympic Games in Athens, he said it was the best thing, and he got many t-shirts and other goodies.

Would be just nice to be part of it.

If Madrid wins, would you like to be a volunteer?
You will be welcome.

Because i'll always be thinking 'this is what could of been'


But seeing as we're building almost everything if we get the olympics or not...it wont be so bad.


But it'll never happen....Ill bet my left leg on either Paris or London getting it.

You must keep this way to say your arguments. This is the way. You must defend the advantages of London and Paris Bids, and never be arrogant against the other ones. I think both of them are good bids but in my opinion Madrid is the best bid for many reasons for the Olimpyc games and everybody will be welcome to our city if Madrid wins. I wish Madrid wins.

Madrid!!!!!!
These "Go Madrid" count the same than your "go london", or the gamesbid index, or the polls, it's just the vote of the IOC members what counts!

How isnt it the same thing?

I dont think Madrid is a contender...But I dont think London is favorites, but we have a far better chance of winning it than Madrid does.
