MADRID 2028, MADRID 2032, MADRID 2036, MADRID 2040, MADRID 2044.....

I wouldn't be surprised. But if the competition is heavy, like is already being mentioned after this 2020 Asian win, then they better think long & hard if they really want to go through all of thi

"Thank you for your $50 million bid fee, here is your diploma."

I also wonder if Tokyo 2020 kills any hopes of the so-called Paris 2024 bid. I mean a twice host backed by a three-times host? Not sure that will happen.

A Paris 2024 is NOT going to happen. It's all back to the southern Indian ocean again for 2024. I mean how can they NOT go for it? It's almost slotted for them!!

I think the USOC should bid for 2024 for the precise reason of the possibility that they will NOT win. It will show the IOC that the USA is serious about the Games, serious about sharing experiences and knowledge and is not just going to waltz into a bid process expecting to win. It will also allow the USA pre-applicant pool to grow between 2024 and 2028 and give the possibility to change the city. It's not a wasted effort to have repeat bids. Tokyo, PyeongChang and Rio have all won learning from their previous experience.

This goes against the new stance that the USOC has now taken. They don't wanna bid frivolously & when they do, they don't want cities to brake the bank either. I don't see how this type of strategy really would benefit anyone.

I believe Sydney, Atlanta and Seoul are the most recent ones.

So there's still possibility a host city can be chosen on first attempt. I think the world needs a Muslim country to host the Games for once to balance things out as they've taken a lot of slack for the conflicts in the world now. That's why I think it's a shame Istanbul lost out on this opportunity, to show the world what a modern Muslim country can be. Those rich, Middle Eastern country can afford to host the Games anytime, but will be even more boring and uninspiring than Tokyo.

This leaves us to Malaysia as the only viable potential Muslim host country. I would like to see them host, and first time in south east asia aint is refreshing too.

Athens 1896 :lol: , St. Louis 1904, :lol: , Antwerp 1920, Melbourne, Seoul, the GLORIOUS city of Atlanta, and Sydney.

Not to mention London 2012. Yeah, they hosted twice before. But the previous two times they were practically given the Games.

Well if that's their declared strategy.... not particularly a fan of that from the "bid watcher" perspective, but hey, what can you do.

Madrid 2024

"We are so stubborn"

I wouldn't be surprised. But if the competition is heavy, like is already being mentioned after this 2020 Asian win, then they better think long & hard if they really want to go through all of this yet again.
