i am in favour of "smaller" cities organizing the olympics that could help boost their economies as it happened with barcelona and athens.
therefore i would like to see the following cities organizing the olympics:
lisbon
copenhagen-malmo
alexandria(egypt)
lagos
brasilia
santiago
ottawa
new delhi
yekaterinburg
brisbane

Athens or another Greek city will get one I think within the next 12 olympiads. They wont wait 108 years again.

I think 'Grimsby' or 'Cumbernauld' will get it in the next 40 years.

Calgary
Seattle
Phoenix
San Diego
Denver
Kansas City
Minneapollis/St Paul
Charlotte
or
Baltimore.

Though by 2050 even Raleligh/Durham might be big enough.
The problem with Phoenix is it gets way to warm for it to be in the summer. It gets over 100 degrees F. I hate to see even out althletes sweat it out.

Okay, I agree September would be an ideal time to host the Olympics in the Valley of the Sun (the nickname of Phoenix). My problem, as of right now, is facility locations. Those facilities could take over an hour on a freeway to get to! (We're having a light-rail system being installed, but, unlike other major cities, it won't connect the major facilities.) You'll have to build a new stadium for the track and field (Both Sun Devil and Cardinals Stadium won't hold the track, and the current facility at Arizona State University won't cut it.) Plus, what would happened to the track and field venue? There's some major hurdles to a Phoenix Olympics. (pun not intended)

Wouldn't the climate be too extreme in Dubai to host an Olympics? I don't know, can anyone enlighten me?

I agree Africa needs it... maybe Alexandria, Cape Town, Marrakesh, Dakar or Johannesburg? Of those, I'd say Alexandria would be best, although give it three or four decades.

I've tried to choose not so well known cities and cities from nowadays not so well developed countries as often as possible

2016 - Santiago de Chile, Chile -> South America
2020 - Hamburg, Germany -> Europe
2024 - Cape Town, South Africa -> Southern Africa
2028 - Detroit, USA -> North America
2032 - Phnom Penh, Cambodia -> South East Asia
2036 - Casablanca, Morocco -> Northern Africa
2040 - Prague, Czechia -> Europe
2044 - Amman, Jordan -> Middle East
2048 - Salvador da Bahia, Brazil -> South America
2052 - Bangalore, India -> South Asia
2056 - Wellington, New Zealand -> Oceania
2060 - Nizhny Novgorod, Russia -> Europe

Philadelphia is also in the race to host the 2016 Olympics from North America.

Philadelphia named Olympic 'partner'

From India, I think the best city to host the Olympics in the near future is definitely New Delhi, the capital. In fact, its hosting the Commonwealth Games 2010. I am sure half the forumers here probably heard of it!
