  6. Madrid 2024 It made sense 4 years ago, well guess what it still makes sense!
  7. London has organised three times and the first two do not qualify as bids really given there were no many alternatives!

  10. Ok If you get this one too, I promise not to disagree with you again!
  11. Mathematically Tokyo is favoured, but in real life people can change their votes!
  12. OMG I even noticed three IOC members reading "Secrets of the Olympic Ceremonies"
  13. Possibly previous host cities... That actually would be very interesting!!!
  14. My prediction: Madrid Out first Tokyo Out second Istanbul Winner!
