If Sochi will not get 2014 - possibility for Moscow for 2016 will be high (but Dubai higher), if not 2016, then posibility of Saint Petersburg for 2020 will be very high. It going to be Dubai in 2016 for sure, but 2020 will be hard challenge between American and Eastern European cities. Posibilities of Russia growing with every bid.

I think Manchester UK should get the Olympic games one day. As the city is the fore founder of the Paralympic World Cup which started last year and is running every year in Manchester up to 2008 beijing. I know London as the games for 2012, but may be 20 years later or so.

Anyway check out the website: Paralympic World Cup

Are you guys talking about Summer Olympics or Winter? Because there are criterias that need to be meet for the Winter Games.

Like having a mountain with snow near you

coth,
It's supposed to be a "summer olympics" not indoor airconditioned olympics? I really can't see Dubai holding the games because of the extreme temperatures experienced there. I remember they were worried Sydney would be too hot, thats why they moved the games to a cooler part of the year. Don't get me wrong, in a few years time Dubai would be capable of hosting an olympics (infrastructure wise) it's just the climate which would hold it back.

supposed or should be? geopolitical center is changing, as well as influence in international organisations.

but how about winter olympic games? it's really very hard for people from tropics visit them. middle east deserve own games. and sometimes it will happen.

my comment was not meant to attack ur opinion that dubai shud host the games..but dubai certainly wont be hosting the summer games unless it grows its sporting culture..and apart from that..gets some recognition with the IOC which takes years...the question is not whether financially dubai can host the games...will the IOC award the games to dubai 2040? yeah maybe in 30 years..but not in the near future...

cape town actually has a chance...the IOC is making a move to bring the games to africa and south america..this is a strategic move...a south african IOC member a part of the london 2012 evaluation commission has also recently been added to the IOC executive board..and cape town placing third for the 2004 games has helped it gain tremendous credibility within the IOC...

can dubai host the games in terms of finances, infrastructure lets say 2032? yes im sure they could pay for it all..will women and men compete in different venues?? will women compete for the UAE? temperature? legacy? attendance?

will the IOC actually awards the games to dubai?...thats an entirely different question and IMO the answer is NO...olympic culture, legacy, and a decent sized olympic team (i.e. more than a handful of athletes)...these are all things that count before the IOC even looks at other aspects...again this is my opinion...and dubai although they have shown no interest to do so., may bid if they like, nobody is stopping them...

Australia will definately host the games again within the next 50 years, since we are one of the most signfiicant Olympic nations (based on team size, number of medals, public support and excellent record hosting two of the best Olympic Games). The next Olypmic Games in Australia will be held in Melbourne because Sydney had them last time :-)

I have never been a fan of the games in a large city.....like NYC or London or Moscow....I think NYC especially will just be too congested unless they built out near Flushing

that being said, I am going to contradict myself here:

Sydney
Aspen
are two cities that quickly come to mind
