ARCHIVE - 2008 Olympic Bid - Beijing

The 2008 Olympic Bid culminated July 13, 2001 at the 112th IOC session in Moscow. The campaign was controversial, especially for Beijing which was a heavy early favourite but the object of criticism due to human rights violations and pollution. The one-sidedness of the final vote did not fairly represent the relative quality of the bids, raising further suspicion on the IOC.
