Ok, this is my view on the Wikipedia Page for the Potential Bidders on the 2024 Summer Olympics:

Cities that will probably Bid from that list -

Africa: Durban, South Africa.

Asia: Doha, Qatar.

Europe: Paris, France; Berlin, Germany; Rome, Italy; Istanbul, Turkey and Baku, Azerbaijan.

North America: Los Angeles, Usa.

- Durban, South Africa will be a strong Bid, but I reckon they will win 2028.

- Doha, Qatar will not be a strong Bid, and are Bidding for stupid reasons knowing that 1) They won't have another Olympics in Asia in 2024 and 2) Not in Qatar's time frame.

- Paris, France will be a strong Bid, and will battle out with Rome, Italy in the final round.

- Berlin, Germany will be a moderate strength Bid, will make Candidate City, but won't win.

- Rome, Italy will be a strong Bid, and will battle out with Paris, France in the final round, and eventually win IMO.

- Istanbul, Turkey will be a moderate strength Bid, but can't compete with Paris, Rome, Durban and even Berlin.

- Baku, Azerbaijan will be a moderate strength Bid, improve since 2020, but still not strong enough.

- Los Angeles, Usa will be a strong Bid, but the IOC won't go back to Usa yet IMO, and the NEXT North American Olympic Host will be Toronto IMO.

Candidate Cities: Durban, Paris, Berlin, Rome and Los Angeles.

Round 1: Los Angeles is eliminated.

Round 2: Durban is eliminated.

Round 3: Paris and Berlin are tied.

Run-off: Berlin is eliminated.

Round 4: Rome are announced host city of the 33rd Olympiad in 2024.

I know. Your all going to say you can't predict that much detail 3 years before the vote. I know, it's just my PREDICTION, I could be wrong.

So Rome, the capital of cash strapped Italy, prevails over enigmatic Durban, infamously long waiting and charismatic Paris, and the IOC's go to American darling, LA... Yeah.. You could be wrong.

I could be wrong, but so could you. Doha might win! Just joking! But, who would of thought PyeongChang would of beat Munich in 2018?

Everyone, it was heavy favourite from the start.

Well the point is, people keep bringing up Italy's situation, but France aren't exactly stable with Hollande. 2024 will be coming back to Europe IMO, after 2 outside Europe in a row (Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020).

2024 might just as well go to South Africa too. It *is* compelling as an idea at least, South Africa has moved on from when Cape Town lost for 2004, and from a TV coverage point of view, it is basically same time zone as (Western) Europe, so they're not disadvantaged there either.

If Durban can get their act together, they'll be the ones to beat, and Europe might just have to wait four more years.

I was actually a supporter of PyeongChang 2018. I wasn't on these forums when the 2018 Bid Process was going on. I know I shouldn't of, but I assumed that most would of supported Munich, because PyeongChang hasn't much Olympic Hosting history, whereas Munich has. I shouldn't assume really.

Everyone except for nature & Tulsa, that is! Lmfao! :-D Not to mention the ones on the Munich bandwagon.

Most of the Munich supporters were realistic though...they banged the drum for Munich fully expecting defeat.

Don't confuse being a supporter of a bid, and thinking a bid will win. There were a large number who thought PyeongChang would win, but would have prefered the games in Munich.

No literally, I supported and wanted the 2018 Games in PyeongChang. I liked the idea of 'New Horizons' which is why I wanted them to win, and I thought they had the strongest Bid which is why I thought they would win.

Uhh, you sure about that? Were you reading the same boards here. I don't think that they were "fully expecting defeat". Many were citing Munich to be a very strong competitor (which they were). Some were crying foul & even a couple of German athletes lashed out at the IOC. And I remember the arguements that South Korea doesn't have nearly the winter sports "fervor" that of Germany (& I'm not talking about only from nature & Tulsa either). But whatever, it's water under the bridge now.

Everyone...and Paris will beat Rome if they bid, hell from the looks of things it does not seem Rome will even bid.

Except they were not a 'New Horizons' South Korea hosted the summer games in '88 and Japan has hosted two Asian winter games: Sapporo and Nagano

PyeongChang has never hosted. Also, it's the first WINTER Olympics in South Korea.

IMO, I think it's just talk with Philippines Bidding.

I Think will be cool if, NYC host the 2024 games. If NYC took the 2028 Games, i think Amsterdam will be dissapointed, because i know, Amsterdam targetting to host the games at 2028 (it commemorating 100th of Amsterdam 1928 Games)

Sorry if i'm wrong, Newbie.

NYC mayor Bill de Blasio recently stated the city isn't interested in bidding for the 2024 Olympics. Don't know if we'll see anything for 2028 either. And as for Amsterdam, yes they're interested, but I think the odds of them landing the 2028 Games are pretty slim.

Kazachkstan bidding for 2024?! :blink::wacko::lol: But seriously, Chicago chose wisely to stay out of 2024. And really, the USOC would be wise to do the same, no matter how anxious L.A. is. The 2024 cards don't look too favorably for N.A. this early on. If there's a better sense of who the actual international competition might be by the end of the year, then yeah, perhaps take a jab at it. Otherwise, think long & hard, unless L.A. & the USOC is committed in making at least two consecutive attempts.

Just sharing this as a point of information. This was written yesterday.. Why Chicago should bid for the 2024 Olympics

This is why I always say you sometimes have to take stories like this with a grain of salt. Clearly this guy has no clue about the reality of what he's talking about.

With such clueless people involved, no wonder bids are failing. Citing his own experience in a WC bid that got only 2 votes isn't exactly a recommendation letter.

It's a slightly odd piece (Kazakhstan?), but if there was public support for a Chicago bid and the will to do it he's got some good points. Chicago could certainly sell itself as a stable bid just like Tokyo did and Oslo will do.

I wouldn't hold England's 2018 result against him. We know how corrupt that entire process turned out to be!

An odd article in terms of timing and some small details, but the thrust of it isn't too bad.

The thrust is okay, but it doesn't even acknowledge Rahm Emanuel said that Chicago wasn't interested in bidding for the 2024 Olympics. You'd think that would at least get a mention here. But again, this is what we've seen before where an article shows up and we want to treat it as news. This isn't news. This is an opinion piece. Why did this guy write it? Who knows, but it's not necessarily driven by anything he's seen or heard lately in Chicago. The short of it is that we shouldn't take this article as any sort of indication or what is or isn't going on in Chicago with respect to an Olympic bid, regardless of the declaration last February that Chicago isn't interested in bidding.
