  7. The 2012 Olympics bid was a memorable one no doubt and was especially a close one between Paris and London although Paris held the edge over London and was the favorite and it was strongly believe that Paris would win however in the final round London won by a mere Four point surprising a lot of peoples (including some in it own country). It was a huge loss for Paris as it was widely expected they would win. So was the 2012 Sumer Olympics Bid the biggest upset of a candidate city who was widely expected to win?

  9. Madrid Gay Pride Madrid hosts every year one of the most important and crowded gay parades of the world. Between 1.000.000 and 2.000.000 million people meet in a route between Puerta de Alcala square and España square. This year the itinerary will be modified, from Carlos V square to Puerta de Alcalá square. In 2007 Europride was celebrated with more than 2.000.000 million people, and in 2017 Madrid will perform the World Gay Pride. This celebration (Desfile del Orgullo Gay de Madrid) is protected by law, and considered by the Administration of Madrid as relevant event. Madrid Gay Pride is celebrated during one week with a lot of cultural and leisure activities, streets spectacles and concerts, coinciding with the celebration of the Chueca neighbourhood, the gay district of Madrid.

    Anchorage '92 Wintry bid

    I think this may be of a usual find for you, when Anchorage bidded for the winter Olympics for the first time in 1985. Having a really strategic plan meant long enough before it became ousted from making it into the shortlist, which eventually went to Albertville. And after losing their 1994 bid to Lilliehammer during the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, they said: "No more, we're wasting money on such nonsense!"

    Krakow 2022

    Krakow Considers 2022 Bid Officials from Krakow, Poland will meet this weekend to discuss a potential bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics, Around the Rings has learned. Henryk Urbas, a spokesman for the Polish Olympic Committee, tells ATR "very preliminary meetings" with local and regional authorities are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. Krakow, Poland's second largest city with 1.4 million residents, is considered the country's artistic and cultural capital. Source: Thoughts?
  12. I was wondering how big does a City has to be in order to host a Olympics in both Winter and Summer? I notice the Cities that host The Summer Olympics are generally Larger then the Cites who host the Winter Olympics in size and Population.

  14. Hosting Olympic winter sports requires a few things, many of which money can buy (venues, equipment, etc.). But one thing that cannot be bought is weather. Cold weather. And Snow. The average night temperature at Krasnaya Polyana where the Olympic Sliding Center is located is about 21-25 degrees. That is JUST at the end of the temperature zone to hold a refrigerated track. I think it was enormously short-sighted for the IOC to accept that. This year--right now in Feb 2013--the Bobsled and Skeleton World Cup is at the Sanki center. It is over 40 degrees every NIGHT, warmer during the day. Yes, you can say that this is just a warm year, but I don't think so. I think this site was ill-chosen and I believe the IOC either did not consult the International Governing Bodies (in this case, the FIBT) or simply overlooked this tiny detail. It is critical that the IOC pay attention to these environmental issues. The Olympic Games are not a big party--they are important competitions! Logic demands that the metrics for good competitive features should be FIRST!
