  1. Volunteers receive information about bid related events (popular runs, sporting events, charity events, promotional video recording ...) inviting us to participate in different functions. A lot of them had participate in more than 5 promotional events this yearr. They are 50,000 people actively involved on the illusion to organize the Games.
  2. "Cuando vayas a Madrid chulona mía voy a hacerte Emperatriz de Lavapies" "When you go to Madrid mine chulona (beautifull girl) I'll make you Empress of Lavapies (an old district of Madrid)" Tipical Madrileña folk Dedicate to Olympic torch
  3. Madrid wait for you citizens of the world.
  4. I think taht the Fukushima problem is not the natural accident but the subsequent uncontrolled nuclear material handling which is demonstrated in discharges to sea. Japanese government will have to spend much money on fix these problem, which is more important to celebrate the Games
  5. Multiple experts have pointed out the timing of the Japanese elections and TEPCO’s announcement, wondering if the public had received confirmation earlier if it would have prevented Prime Minister Abe from retaining authority. In the words of a professor at the Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology, “Most marine experts who have studied the effect of the Fukushima disaster on surrounding ocean areas hold the view that radioactive water has been leaking from the plant. It’s common sense." From: http://enformable.com/2013/07/tepco-has-a-different-view-of-safety-than-the-public/

      Citius Altius Fortius

      No, thanks!

      Madrid shouldn't get the Olympics to avoid Olympics in France, Germany or Russia in 2024 - the Spanish capital should win only, when its bid is the best for 2020...

      You should challenge your attitude...

  9. I have not any problem to access The applicant file is in the web
  10. Roma is out. If the economic situation is controlled to September of 2013 the Games will be for Madrid
  11. Today the bid will be delivered to IOC. Goog luck Madrid2020.
  12. There was a bid in the last 2 opportunities. Some people are disillusioned and frustrated. It is normal any group are against the candidature. That's not a problem, the illusion will grow as the months pass. Madrid has a big illusion for the sport and the olypic movement.
  13. Spain is a multicultural nation with diferents traitions in each region of our country. In our history we were conquered for diferents cultures, romans, fenicians, cartago, germans, arabs, frenchs, and all of this influence in our traditions in differents ways in each region. Flamenco is origins in Andalusia, but its roots is in a mixed of gypsy and arab cultures. The jotas is other of the Spanish traditional dance, like the sardana in Catalonia. In Madrid the traditional dance is the Chotis and its roots are in a Scottish dance.
  14. Go Madrid I´m from Madrid and I´m not objective but I think we have a lot of traditions, culture elements, sounds, images, illusions, emotions, dreams to offer to all the olympic family. Our sporting complex are builded in an 80% for our illusion in the last two bids. Now we needn´t a big economical inversions, the economical crisis is not a problem. I hope this time will be our time. Go Madrid.
