    I am hoping for Paris as its the city of romance and would love to spend time there in 2012. Thats how you have to look at it I guess, where would you like to go, if you go, to see the olympics.

    There's no chance of Moscow or New York getting it - Madrid is also unlikey - it will come down to how the second/third preference votes get split between London and Paris.

    It was in Barca 20 years ago (in 2012)

    I can't put in to words how amazingly cool it would be to have the Olympics In Britain, for me and the age group to about 8 years younger than me, could give us a great line of Athletes who have been inspired by the stars.
    Or something.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Madrid.

    They could do with some positive international attention after the 2002 bombings; and it goes without saying that all the other candidates have hosted it about a dozen times each.

    There have only been 3 cities in the U.S.A. to host the Olympics. St. Louis, Los Angeles (2) and Atlanta.

    Full list of Olympic host cities.

    I think London has had its fair share.
