OK, after having experienced Istanbul first hand, I have to say it is a fantastic and exciting city. They have some room for improvement, but given that the 2020 Games are 8 years away, those little i

Cross my fingers for Istanbul!!!

its out of topic but very important for istanbullers.. finally its spring and millions of tulips blossomed all around the city. this flower is so important n our culture even has a period name in Ott

Istanbul vs. Capetown? Because Istanbul has bid a number of times...and we know that it will always straddle Europe and Asia, what would be the rush to give it to them...when you have the ONE LAST FRONTIER still NOT having staged the ultimate sports spectacle, yet, after next year...will have staged the 2nd largest most complex Sports event. + a gorgeous setting.

So...and I don't think I am over-aggrandizing Capetown's chances...how can any other city come close to CapeTown's appeal for 2020? I mean by then the modern Olympic movemement will be 124 years old -- and it still hasn't made the complete rounds of all its precincts? I think it's highly unlikely that 2020 will bypass a solid African bid. It would be shameful for the IOC to do so; and other 2020 bidders would be just as foolish.

...Not to mention, that Istanbul's plan is simply not up to snuff. This being Istanbul's 5th attempt at trying to get the Games should be a big clue to the Turks, that they seriously need to revamp their bid. Obviously, The IOC is just not interested in their current (out in middle of nowhere) plan. And that's even before the geopolitics are weighed in.

well if the government still insist on the plan and do not give the candidature application to a proffesional arch. and environmental scientist to make it im not sure its gonna be a different from the past applications. but sure they learned their lessons from the past bids...

at least the infrastructure of the city is rapidly improving. 3rd continental bridge , the railway and metro system with highway under bosphorus, 3rd and the biggest airport in turkey and the region , remaking the city with new city designers ( like zaha hadid project) cultural booming also....

but im not sure if they just add the some ancient and important places as venues to the plan it can be more attractive?

beach volley in Sultanahmet , under the shadows of haiga sophia and the blue mosques minarets? triathlon crossing continents and marathon too. gymnasium or swimmng arena over the golden horn ????*

Zaha Hadid projects, infrastructure booms, metro systems compliment a bid...but they don't make it.

Turkey has got it completely wrong if they think they can win a bid based on grandeur plans. Beijing may have been a very grand Games but they won the bid on their concept, culture and ability to inspire 1.3bn people.

Having 100% venues all with world class metro connections is fantastic. But where is the emotion, class or experience. Istanbul, while highly prepared, doesn't stack up when compared to bids that got the Games to Barcelona, Sydney, Beijing, London and Rio. All cities incredibly under prepared when compared to Istanbul, but with something special to offer the Olympic movement.

Wow.

Yeah sure, Istanbul has nothing special to offer the Olympic Movement: it's just the link between Asia, Europe, between the Christian and Muslim worlds, between Roman and Byzantine civilisations, it's just the gateway to the middle-East a region with one of the highest density of youth in the world...

Whether you chose to believe it or not, it is on the IOC radar.

As for Sydney, Beijing, London being underprepared compared to Istanbul... Well I will just assume that you have not been to any of those cities... Accommodation, transport, Istanbul does not play in the same league.

Istanbul problem has always been its infrastructure, in particular its transportation one - barely sufficient under normal circumstances - , as well as the lack of experience in hosting large multi-sport event.

If they keep working on it, Istanbul will definitely host in the future. 2020 might be a little early but we'll see.

Well, emre, the UN is actually the largest, MORE LEGITIMATE, more IMPORTANT organization in the world. The IOC is merely a 'window-dressing, sideline' player. ;)

Istanbul tried several times for the Olympics and failed in each attempt. It even declined to apply for the 2016 Olympics which went to Rio de janeiro. But now 2020 is the appropriate time to bid for the Games for a fifth time...and win. A plan for an Olympic Park will be revolved around the Ataturk Olympic Stadium. The stadium itself, currently with a capacity of 75,000, will get a slight remodelling to push it to an 85,000 capacity by expanding the 2nd tier to cover the north and south sides. Other facilities such as an aquatics stadium and a tennis centre will be developed. The Sinan Erdem Dome would get some improvements and host indoor events. The Abdi Ipekçi Arena will also be an indoor event venue. The Sukru Saracoglu Stadium on th Asian side may host football matches.

It is unknown how much of the required facilities will be in place in the near future. Does istanbul have any other existing venues plus what is required for the Olympics?

...

we still have no idea if the olympic village plan is the same with the apllications before. or they change it..

most probably they change the whole village and the park for a new design and compact one.

at least i can say İstanbul is hosting 2010 fifa world cup final

2011 indoor athletics champ.

2012 indoor swimming champ

2011-2013 wta champ

also yearly f1 , rowing and sailing champs. eurasia marathon between continents....

im sure if they honour us to be the host of olympics there wont be any problem about stadiums plans and else. what i afraid is the goverment the municiplity and other head quartes. so many heads for an org. make it complicated and suffer:S

just for a road we waited 1 year to take permision from municipility the goverment the high way and transportation minister...else:S

:D

the truth why im supporting ISTANBUL.. and want to host olympics as soon as possible is... Istanbul is dying my friends. its out of control. its big its huge we have so many problems. city is getting more and more contrast. and the only way to save this city is to have olympics. like before barcelona before 1992 and barcelona now..:)

still she is like an old woman so beautiful co characteristic so elegant .... but need some surgery to be the best:D

All very nice...attractive pictures, stellar fixtures etc etc...

But who in the IOC membership, or more specifically in the higher echelon wants an Istanbul SOGs? In all honesty I suspect no one does outside 3 or 4 members such as those like Ugur Erdener (sole Turkish IOC member), Al Sabah from Kuwait and maybe Prince Hussein in Jordan.

Istanbul is a potentially solid bid but it serves no political or individual agenda within the broader IOC membership.
