Oh, they're not going for both? Well that is interesting.

Sensible given that both UEFA and the IOC would question their commitment if they bid for two events for the summer of 2020, though in my opinion they've plumped for the long shot. I think they'd have been favourites for Euro 2020, but they're not for the Olympics.

Best of luck to Turkey though. I hope the IOC are at the very least impressed that Turkey is missing out on a strong chance at hosting the Euros to focus entirely on the Olympics; that has to count for something.

* If there are questions .. I will be more than happy to receive them. (now the questions part began)

// The first question came by an English Speaking man .. sounded more American English than British Engish.

// The question was about the potential of the organisation and the learning of wich mistakes there were happen in the previous bids

// 2nd question is coming from CNN-Türk - What is the IOC precisly expecting from a city that is candidate for the Olympics and if there were differences in the criteria with the candidancies in the previous candidate procedures. (questioned more towards the venue aspect)

// 2nd question is coming from CNN-Türk - What is the IOC precisly expecting from a city that is candidate for the Olympics and if there were differences in the criteria with the candidancies in the previous candidate procedures. (questioned more towards the venue aspect)

// The president is now talking about the transport system .. what is reached now as it was one of the weakest aspects in the previous bids.

// All the transportation rail systems are finished that will serve the plan/clusters

// But more will be done is be done .. the main-speed-line beneath the bosphorus-street / a totally new aiport /

// 3rd question is from the HOST CITY MAGAZINE (in english)

So after 4 successive tries, Turkey's hostings between now AND 2013 MUST BE exemplary. Since Turkey does not have the same athletic strength yet as Italy and Spain, Turkey's organizational reputation is at stake here. Word must get out to the various federations that Turkey has organized the various, smaller competitions before 2013 excellently. This is key to your 2020 bid. Because what you want people to hear is: what a great, smoothly-run Games...NOT what a bush-league, f*cked-up amateur effort! If they CAN'T conduct a small regional games properly, what more the biggest sporting meet in the whole world? So no fvck-ups in the various meets that you have sought to host.

If the Evaluation reports are more or less equal or neutral, 2020 will then be won at the final presentation stage in Buenos Aires. As I said in the other post: Asian votes might tilt towards Tokyo in the opening round. (Istanbul will probably get the islamic votes). Rome and Madrid will split the Euro votes. But it is going to be a wide open race for the American (north) and African votes. The South American votes will split between Madrid and Rome (Argentina will probably lean towards Rome). And it is in the final presentation that Istanbul must grab the scattered, uncommitted votes to get to at least Round 2.

Security issues: Istanbul MUST SHOW that any sort of radical muslim activities happening between now and 2020, will NOT be tolerated on Turkish soil and if so, will be dealt with promptly. If that is under control AND excellent organizational prowess has been displayed, then I think Istanbul MIGHT have a very strong bid.

Good luck, Istanbul!! Hire Mike Lee before Rome or Tokyo grabs him!! I think he can deliver 2020 for you!!

I did miss a lot .. But will write some other sentences about what the PM is saying at the moment

* Turkey build a lot in the last deccenia; freeways, roads, speed-rails in whole of the country (he sums name of Turkish cities)

* With all the sport organisations and all the new venues been build (eastetically and tecnically seen)

* Turkey is mentally and phisically ready for the Olympics more than ever.

// The sports minister has spoken.

* Whole the government, country, metropolitan city, citizens of Istanbul, and all the ministers/cabinet are backing %100 this candidancy

// Mayor of the Metropolitan City

* Waterwasting issues and Greenery in the city, the air-quality is increased immensely in the last deccade .. we worked a lot on those issues

* About the accomodation issue; Istanbul will surprise on that, because a lot of luxuary is beeing biuld.

* 1.600 km fiberoptic cables in whole of Istanbul (more than other world cities)

* And the first lap climax will be in 2012 when Istanbul is the Sports Capital of Europe

* The under-construction about cables/pipelines (water/gas and so on) is been build.

* The city has cleaned up more than people would expect. (istanbul is more than ready)

* A cleaner and a more eastacially city is the outcome of all our efforts and works

There was the PRE-programme .. now there is an After-programme.

The presidents of the other sports-federations are in the row now as they weren't in the PRE-programme.

But Firstly a lot of questions towards KADIR TOPBAS; Mayor of the Istanbul Metropolitan City.

He talks about the the economical powerhouse that Istanbul became and The talks also about the New CANAL-ISTANBUL about ±50 km that will be build to solve the immense shipping traffic on the bosphorus.

In the past 2 times there were big ship-explosians .. and now the the immensely increased shipping-trafic is a danger not only for an Olympic Organization but also for the City itself, as a lot of ships or waiting on the Shores of the Sea of Marmara to pass the street. That also doesn't give a clean and aestetically view about the city.

With the new Canal the bosphorus will be used for daily lessure for the city/cititezens in general. And an Olymic Organization will also benefit optimally from the street (outdoor swimming, triatlon, sailing and so on) with the historical Backdrop of the Histrocial Peninsula.

"With 2020 Istanbul will be a top class city that will serve the world" he says.

being a schizophrenic maniac just taking the declaration time as 14,45 the potentional of the candidancy i can say control your backs rome madrid and tokyo... as a leo sign good at organizing and the horoscope has some significant parts for work and int. relations like,

Istanbul

* knows what she wants and does whatever necessary to get it. She wants to - and does - succeed socially

* full of dynamism and over-abundant energy. She loves life and takes all it has to offer. She likes sports and the outdoor life. She is successful professionally and emotionally

* likes to direct, is intelligent and is an organizer of the first order

* can concentrate on a long-term task, manual or intellectual. She perseveres and is serious in everything she does.

* Success in professional life will be long and laborious. Continuously working towards it, she will finally achieve universally acknowledged success.

capricorn at 2nd house at carrier and money.. means working hard, a proffesional nothing left for chance ...

another point of view for the candidancy :D

good luck for my first and eternal love. this time i hope we achieve and see the olympic flame at Bosphorus
