2016- where?


Recommended Posts

Because Mikel, for the size and influence of Spain, it's had its quota for a Summer Games in Barcelona in 1992.  You make it appear that Spain is like the 2nd or 3rd greatest Olympic power and that therefore the world owes it another SOG soon.  

There are other countries who carry greater weight and influence in the Olympic world who would want their turn too.  Don't take it personally; that's just the way it is.

Sorry if my post sound so "Spanizied" but I only try that the people realise we are here, too. I don't know when (maybe 2020 it's a bit soon), but I know Madrid will get a Summer Olympics before I die.

You mustn't be disheartened though Mikel, Madrid did enjoy a lot of praise in the 2012 competition - even if I would myself prefer the next few European Summer Games to be in France, Italy and Germany it doesn't mean all the members of the IOC will agree with me - continue to be an enthusiastic supporter of your city!

he shud be sad.... cape town is winning 2020...hehe cheer up lil'mikel...blame it on barcelona don't blame it on us...

I wouldnt be to sure Mo. 2020 is a long way off.

Following an almost certain win by the US in 2016, Cape Town could be facing cities like Madrid, Tokyo/Osaka and Berlin. Certainly more "international" cities then Cape Town and far more financially stable.

My verdict, i houneslty dont see Cape Town getting the games in 2020. Certainly a bid, but Madrid and a Japanese bid will simply offer to much to refuse. Maybe another bid in 2024 (getting pipped at the post) and then onto hosting in 2028.

Madrid will be unlikely for 2016.

If it did win 2006, 2012, 2016 (and possibly 2014) would all be European. Not to mention if Jaca gets 2014. 2020 Will slot in nicely for Madrid regardless of Jaca winning. Back to ack European bids in this new age of Olympics wont help either.

I dont think they canw ait any longer either though who could resists a bid from Tokyo when the only competition is Cape Town, Bangkok and Rio?

If New York can gets its act together next time around or Chicago does well in its first attempt. We might as well wrap it, stamp in a ship in straight to the US now.

Do all Spanairds have an inferiority complex like you Mikel, and feel that someone always owes them something? ???

Well, since Spain settled Puerto Rico and most of it's inhabitants are of Spanish decent, I guess that says a lot about the quality of Spain as well  :wwww:

Madrid might find it a little more difficult to win once JAS shuffles off this mortal coil (though I'm under no doubt that the IOC will probably cyrogenically freeze him to be resurrected as their eternal President in the coming centuries)  :D

There's so many cities that deserve the games; NYC, Rio, Chicago, Berlin, Moscow, Paris, Tokyo, Cape Town, (Madrid, just for you Mikel)... the list is endless!

It has GOTto be new york. It would be 14 years after the last American games, New York has bidded before, and its a really good bid. It is almost guaranteed.

(psssst, seamus...ever heard - don't count your chickens until they're hatched?)  :glare:

Look at what's happened to Bode Miller.  Don't say it -- you'll jinx it.  Just let it ride.

It simply HAS to be New York. I can see it now...London's closing ceremony handing over to New York....from Big Ben to the Statue of Liberty.

Couldn't agree more! It would be fantastic.

Roll on another anglo-saxon conspiracy!

Going on past cycles, the IOC will probably call for expressions of interest after the 2014 vote next year, have a cut off for applications early 2008 and later that year cut that down to a short list (if necessary).

The only real thing we know is that the winner will be announced at the Copenhagen Congress in 2009.
