Any pictures from Madrid? I need to see the faces of my Spanish relatives!! :lol:

I've run out of "likes" to give, or you'd have one for that!

Oh, I almost forgot.

Baron, I am so sorry that you'll have to deal with very boring ceremonies in 2020 :lol: so make sure to enjoy 2016, ok? XD *shot dead*

Yeah...a loss for all of us. But c'est la vie, Bunraku!! ;)

That said, I have a feeling the Olympic movement will go downhill after Rio 2016. It's like the last hurrah before humanity decided they had enough of it. Rio 2016 will be the Queen Elizabeth of the British monarchy. After she's gone, nobody will care for Charles or William being king. Same with Tokyo 2020 or any city after.

This all but knocks out squash from tomorrows vote.

Baseball = Japan's national sport

Wrestling = a sport Japan excels at (especially women's wrestling).

Isn't this a bit extreme ?

This is good for Atlanta. 5 cities are now 2x summer hosts. That boosts Atlanta's chances to host again!!!

Tough luck for Madrid. I was so excited about the idea of a games there. Three rejections in a row from the IOC...pretty clear message I guess :( I just hope the bloodsuckers from Barcelona don't get their 2022 Winter Games or that'll be it for this century for the rest of Spain.

I'm glad Tokyo got the Games though.

We will not see the crowd cheering and crying on the street of Tokyo after the city was awarded the game. When the result was announced it was 5:00am in Tokyo, and now the time there is 6:24am.

It's 5:24am in Hong Kong. Have to sleep. Good night!

Congrats to Tokyo but as an American desperately wanting an American or at least Canadian SOG the election of Tokyo is disheartening. 2022 is all but guaranteed to be Europe as is 2024. I don't see 2026 going to any of the Americas as well, the next time I see the games coming to the American Continents is 2028. A long 15 years away :(

And I really hope to see NYC bids again in 2024. That will be one amazing Games to look forward to if it's in NYC. Otherwise, 2024 should go to South Africa. Or Asia again provided it's a completely different region eg. Malaysia/ Thailand/ India.

NYC is probably the only American bid that would make any sense at all for 2024 and I think even that would probably be a losing battle.

Another alpha mega city has won. Where is the hope for the little cities of Tulsa, Baton Rouge. Toronto and Hambantota? :blink:

lmfao

Busy having seizures.

A winter bid from Spain would make much more sense, though. I've said it all along. They'd have the "why" factor & it'd be cheaper to host. But I guess the stubbornness of the Castillian's keeps them from seeing the bigger picture.
