And SA is a great example of much racial and political strife over the last 50 years and has been a great example on how society (though imperfect) should go about moving on and improving with each other in relative peace and democracy. Can't beat that.
Why Cape Town and not Johannesburg?

Isn't Johannesburg a bigger and more global city anyways?

Almost all of you seems to forget Copenhagen. It will properly bid for the 2024 summer games, and since its such a long time since there has been Olympic games to Scandinavia, I think we'll have a pretty fair chance of getting it.

Joburg is bigger and more finacially important then Cape Town (from what I know)

I am not South African but I think from an outside perspective Cape Town is more internaionally alluring and has a nicer scenic backdrop and tourist infrastructure for such games.

Also Cape Towns crime problems are not a little bit less pronounced then Jo-Burg aren't they? Not to say Jo-Burg isn't a fine nice city (underrated and overly critized I could tell from my trip there).

Hong Kong will host the Equestrian events for 2008 Olympics.
But it is a possibility HK/Guangzhou/Shenzhen will be able to co-host.

I doubt Australia will ever get winter olympics!! In fact getting them in the southern hemisphere might be a bit of a challenge.

Funny how so many people don't seem to think Oceania will see the Olympics in the next 60 years.

I would love to see Australasia host a Winter Olympics.

Christchurch would be a Fab host city with the entire South Island sharing the different sporting events. The spin off for the rest of New Zealand and Australia would be fantastic, just as it was when the summer games were in Sydney and the Commonweath games will be in Melbourne -

CHRISTCHURCH AND THE SOUTH ISLAND FOR A FANTASTIC AUSTRALSIAN WINTER OLYMPICS

So much USA in plans?

I don't see any more games in USA and Canada in next 20 years. 6 games from 1980 to 2010 is enough. Time for South America - Rio, BA, Mexico etc etc etc.

So in that way you must reject San Francisko to offer Miami. From USA cities to hold olympics I preffer NYC and Chicago. Miami it's good because is very nice and hot ocean beach resort, but I think it is a litlle bit too small to be an olympic city and hasn't got venues for many kinds of sport.

Bogota imposibble, no way for many years to go. It has a lot of problems with criminals and drugs, lots of people are kidnaping every day there.

1- It has a great mass transit system. the transmilenium is a pioneer and role model for many cities in latin america (specially central america), toronto, and a few other south american cities and all of the big colombian cities. it is used by 9 million people a day. it is the 1st or 2nd longest (i can't remember which) and it's bike path is the longest in the world.
2- it is a wealthy city with about 1/3 of colombia's gdp (1/3 of ~400 billion usd=~134 billion usd) and its standard of living is similar to that of many western european cities like london and paris.
3- It is a very environmentall conscious city.
4- It is a big city with a metro pop of ~9 million and will pass the 10 million mark by 2010.
5- It has hosted countless international forums (right now there are 2 or 3 forums going on and one is about prevetion of the h5n1 virus in the americas) and international sporting events of the western hemisphere.
6- it is one of the safest cities in the western hemisphere (even safer than Buenos Aires).
I think that Rio, Santiago and Buenos Aires have a better chance than Caracas, Bogota or Lima.

A bit of news...

Quote:
Denmark sets sights on Olympic Games?

07.03.2006 - The Copenhagen Post

Ironing out the details for Copenhagen's bid as Olympic host is the next step after a thorough report finds that winning the 2020 or 2024 Summer Games is possible

Where there's a will there's a way. Copenhagen has taken a step closer to climbing the podium of cities selected to host a summer Olympics.

Hosting the 2020 Summer Games would cost DKK 24.5bn, according to consultancy company Ramb°ll's report, 'The Olympics to Denmark - possibilities and barriers'.

Costs could be kept low by building temporary structures that could be disassembled after the games, thus avoiding costs for permanent materials and land.

Copenhagen's existing infrastructure made the city a strong candidate, according to the report. The city's train and Metro system could, for example, easily shuttle athletes, delegates, and visitors to the nearby Copenhagen Airport.

A successful Olympic event would bring in approximately DKK 500m, according to the report.

'It's an exciting and interesting report,' said the minister of culture and sport, Brian Mikkelsen. 'The government will continue to work with ideas and analyse the figures, but we will wait with definite announcements.'

Mikkelsen, who has made no secret that bringing the games to Copenhagen was an important goal for him, admitted that some of the figures seemed a bit low.

'I'm a bit surprised by the low figures for infrastructure costs. That appears a bit optimistic, but at any rate, there are few cities that have done such comprehensive preliminary work as we have,' he said.
