Dear all, I am looking for the IOC Evaluation Report for the 2002 Cities. Does anyone have it?

Furthermore, I have got a question regarding the Beijing 2000 Bid Books. I have them and its just three books in a plain box. Was that really all? I can imagine that they came along with something more or is this set really a "classic" one (three books only)?

Hmmm.... Well, Puppy did upload their Bid Summary, it did look plain even though it was scanned black and white, you can see they used poor binding on the summary like Berlin did with their bid books, All the other candidates (Including Milan not Brasilia & Tashkent) produced a 3 Volume Bid Book Set, so I think Beijing did the same, I hope thias helps, as for the 2002 Evaluation Report, I will try and look for it, maybe ask Puppy and see if he has anything.

True, and don't for get Montreal which kind of hurt them. Still the US had LA and Lake Placid in the same decade.

Both LA and Lake Placid were the only bidders for their years. One could argue that perhaps Atlanta might have been a thank you to USA for saving the IOC's bacon not once but twice.

Yeah, but you're America, and we're Canada after all. Plus those were different times. Apples and oranges.

I was not born yesterday I know that many people think Atlanta was a thank you, it was an expression. I was saying that Toronto had a better plan and probably would have hosted much better than Atlanta.
