Should China do the unthinkable and win 2026, then 2034 will be Australia's time to shine!

You expect Burlington, Vermont over Quebec, Canada? That's absurd, if they were to bid against one another then we know that Quebec is far superior. Don't even expect Burlington to even be considered as the USOC bid for a Winter Olympics, not for a very long time (or when all other possible bidding cities including the likes of Bozeman Montana, Boise Idaho, and Honolulu Hawaii, have been considered).
Burlington is one of the best small size city's in the US Northeast if not the country. Why does it have to beat out Quebec City to win? Who knows for sure but I think it is more it is more likely the US will get a winter games before Canada gets another one so its not a question of X US City vs. Quebec City.

Was Lillehammer a better city or town then many others who didn't get a games or perceived to have thrown as good as a games? Unlike the the summer games the stature size of a city isn't as parimount.

some quick shots of Burlington, Vt.










I don't know if fthe people of Burlington would care to hold a games or if it will ever be selected but I do know it would make a quality host deserving of a chance.

Well a Burlington-Lake Placid bid is better than an Albany-Lake Placid bid, even if it is different states, that doesn't matter.

FIFA WC

2026 - Colombia

Quote:
South America Round Up - Warner Suggests Colombia 2026 World Cup Bid



FIFA President Jack Warner on his inspection visit to Colombia this week


Warner Backs Colombia bid

FIFA vice president Jack Warner has suggested Colombia puts itself forward as a candidate for the 2026 World Cup finals.

Warner declared himself impressed while visiting the country to inspect its preparations for the Under-20 World Cup, which it is hosting next year.

"I am very impressed the way Colombia prepares for the U-20 World Cup, especially security wise,” said Warner.

“All the work for this World Cup could be used as a preparation for the 2026 World Cup. Brazil will host the 2014 World Cup, but twelve years later the World Cup will return to South America and I think Colombia will then be totally prepared to organize the World Cup. "

Colombia was originally awarded the 1986 finals, a controversial decision that FIFA backtracked on in early-1983 amidst grave concerns about the country’s security and readiness for the finals. Instead Mexico stepped in, pipping the United States to become the first country to host two tournaments.

Habana, Cuba would be nice considering Cuba strong tradition at the olympics its the latin american country that has won the most olympic medals by far. Plus Habana is a very pretty colonial city and it would the first olympics in the caribbean.

The problem with Havana is the dated infrastructure, they would have to do a lot of new sports venues, venue reconstruction and transportation upgrades to convince the IOC they're good enough to make it into the Candidate phase.

Having a moderately modern airport is not enough.
Refurbishing the track at the Estadio Panamericano is not enough, can it even be upgraded to a minimum of 65,000? (Yes, 60,000 is the minimum, but I can easily expect organizers wanting to have a 5,000 card section at one part of the stands and with proper seats, a video screen or two, the skyboxes, concessions, new toilets etc).

And there's the transport problem. Having an extensive and efficient bus service might not be enough, I'd probably want to propose a subway linking the Olympic Park with Downtown Havana and other venue clusters.

They lost their bids for 2008 and 2012 for good reason. I'd propose for them to attempt another bid for 2020, make the infrastructure upgrades (They will not make the Candidate phase, but all proposed infrastructure developments should be underway, for a potential 2nd bid for 2024, which they would have a better chance of making the cut).

More than that they will actually have to produce a bid that shows that they have actually bothered to glance at the IOC requirements.

Their bids have just been plain lazy.

Like Andorra's for 2010? :P

Oh right, like the one for 2008 (or was it 2012?), where they say their Estadio Olimpico will be 60,000, but on the chart it's states that it's 35,000. Or that the Latin American stadium will host Ceremonies at it's 50,000 capacity.

Melbourne 2028

I think Melbourne 2028 would be a good option but I think there'd need to be changes.

MCG Upgrade - 130 000 up to 145 000(standing_
Etihad Upgrade - 80 000
MRS Upgrade - 55 000
Brand New Stadium - 35 000
New Aquatic Centre
Wrestling/Boxing Centre Permanint.
Rowing Facilities.
Equastrian Course and Archery tobe built close to the city. (Docklands) Parkland?

These are just suggestions and would cost billions. Not to mention a PT overhaul.

Silly suggestions.

MCG is fine as is, Etihad is fine as is, MRS does not need an upgrade anytime soon.

Why would we build a 35,000 seat Aquatics Center? London is only building a 17,000 seat one, Chicago proposed a 17,000 seat one. It's not necessary.

Equestrian will remain at the iconic Werribee Equestrian Grounds, likely the same place for Archery.

The only major venue to be built will be the rowing course, there will not be needless nonsense upgrades.

Public Transport? We have a good centralized rail network, the largest tram network in the world and numerous bus lines. All we need is station renovations (definitely one for Flinders Street), more trains (To the point that trains come every 10 minutes during off peak, and every 5 minutes during peak hours, if possible) and buses.

Is that a joke? Have to tried to catch a bus in peak hour.

I wait about 10 minutes and then it's packed terrible. Trams running along Glenferrie Rd. is terrible they come every 20minutes and they're packed. We need an overhaul. And yes I want Melbourne to have those it's be cool to have bigger stadiums so there are no fights over hosting something. It'd be cool aswell.

Oh. my. god. I can't believe I am witnessing Solopop saying something negative about Melbourne!

Seriously though, come to the Gold Coast and you'll realise what good PT Melb has.
