  13. Cape Town has withdrawn its bid for the 2017 World Games citing financial implications.

  15. I'm beginning to see good elements, that if packaged correctly, can become that much needed compelling narrative, to put Istanbul in a good positiion come 2013. Here is my current preference. 1. Istanbul 2. Rome 3. Madrid (not far behind Rome) 4. Tokyo 5. Baku 97. Doha
