  1. Now that would be something worth going to watch! BTW Magic, your name is kind of prophetic. A bid of Magic was the strong theme which was weaved through London's final presentation. Did you have some kind of clue about this?!! I think I was listening to Queen's "It's a kind of magic" when registering membership to GamesBids, and I thought London's bid is a 'bid of magic' Actually at the end of one of the video bits during the presentation it said 'London - Where magic happens' or something along those lines. Can't argue with that. Well it worked for London alright! I can see it now, Bertrand Delanoe says "Paris, a bid of magic in 2016" as they lose again under his command. oops sorry, did I say that?

  3. Thanks Robert, it truely is looking incredible. I went past it a few months ago, but there's been a lot of progress since. Two things that stand out for me is the sheer size of the place and secondly how much space between seats there is:
  4. If you do your homework you will realise that far from being just a decorative though iconic part of the stadium, the arch actually holds up several thousand tonnes of roof (all of the north roof and 60% of the south roof), so that there doesn't need to be supports around the stadium which would obliterate sightlines. Every single seat in the stadium therefore is fully covered and has no sight obstruction. The area per seat is also more than twice that of each seat in the SdF, giving spectators more leg room than most stadiums of comparable capacity.
