Well, it´s posible, if Rio could, why not Warsaw...? The only thing they need is infrastructure and teams to use it...

Warsaw has all the teams it needs. I think the biggest issue is transport infrastructure. Although in 2020... I would predict a good system in place. By then.. the second metro line will be built and probably a new airport terminal at Okecie, as well as a regional/releaver airport at Modlin. I have full support for Warsaw in 2020. But first Poznan 2014! We shall know the verdict in about half a day. :P

Because geopolitically speaking, it's not the same thing. You can't possibly even begin to compare Rio to Warsaw. For starters, Rio is at least twice the size than Warsaw.

Uhh, yes Guadalajara did in fact withdraw. That link you posted is a week older than the link I already posted (from the very same website) earlier in the thread before you posted the older article.

Later today, the IOC will chose between Nanjing or Poznan. Guadalajara is out of the picture now.

Live broadcast.

It was like 5 minutes. Then they stopped the transmission.

As for media coverage.... I'm surprised the media don't say anything, especially in Poland.

I've read on polish forum that we lost only 42:47 :C It was so close...it's all about the money...eech maybe in 2018 But it'd be better to bid in 2020 for Olympics in Warsaw, I mean regular summer olympic games. I'm pretty sure we have big chances.

As much as i want Warsaw to be chosen for 2020 i really doubt they will get it. There is huge competition for the 2020 Olympics. By the way, when are they choosing the hosts for that?

To be fair is question of money, and venues, and infrastructure, and China has it almost all...

It was obvious but sometimes you expect David to beat Goliath... anyway, that shouldn't
dissapoint other countries for nexts bids...

That's a good thing in my book.
That you win based on how good your bid is, not if it has been in your continent or not.

I hope another Polish city bids for the 2018 edition. I think Poznań, Kraków, Wrocław, or Gdańsk should apply. Not Warsaw because they are bidding for the biggest prize of them all, the 2020 Summer Olympics.

If Poland does win the 2020 bid then we wont have the 2018 youth olympics and vice versa.

Poland has a much better chance at landing the Youth Olympic Games than the traditional event. There's just so much stronger competition out there for the traditional Games. Besides, has Poland made any 2020 intentions extremely clear? Since I haven't heard anything official about that in the least.
