COPENHAGEN WINS!

Close one for Copenhagen, I thought the cartoon row might have spoilt it for them. Without the cartoon row, maybe the victory would have been more straight forwardm much easier than the 59-40 ballot.

Shame though that at present Denmark is the most unpopular country in the islamic world, gives America and Israel some time off from being most unpopular/ most hated countries in the middle east.

When someone sees the round-by-round vote for the 2009 Congress, would you please post it here?  Yes, it was a secret vote, but these things have a way of getting out!

Thanks.

Great news....does anybody have the copenhagen bidbook for the ioc congress...?

I've searched for the bidbooks, but couldn't find then anywhere, maybe they aren't to be released in piblic

It is probably rather simple when compared to the Games.  I would think that all that is needed is a good conference centre, lots of good hotels, good financing, good hospitality, good transportation and of course security.  It is not like they are going to build anything special for this.  But still, would be interesting to have a look.

I've heard that the IOC plans to change the host of the Olympic Congress, because of the cartoons with Mohammed in Denmark

where did u hear this, Georghost?  

1.  I mean they shouldn't be carried away by that mob thinking.  I mean it's a free press and the work of one newspaper.

2.  If they were going to blackball Copenhagen, they should've done it BEFORE the vote.

3.  Then removing Copenhagen AFTER the FACT will be seen as a capitulation of the West to that idiotic islamic cult.

Then I think such a move would deeply divide the IOC.  And then they would have to call me to come and save the movement, huh?    

 :wwww:

Hmmmm.

Anyway, I'm sure by 2009 most of us, even the Muslims among us, will have forgotten about these cartoons anyway - or found something else to debate hopefully.

well, it seams pretty obvious that it is more simple then hosting the actual game.

I dont know what you considder "anything special", but as part of the bid is the construction of a hotel, and today they say they may also construct a new 15.000 seat multiarena, to be ready in 2009, aswell as a general expansion of the copenhagen congress center. But sure, we are not talking big trafic investment and the likes of that.

About removing the congress from Copenhagen, i doubt that. If anything, the case have died down in the last few days. I believe they would have done something before the vote, if they wanted to.

Latest IOC article about Copenhagen 2009. Early next year, it seems that there will be an official website to the 13th Olympic Congress to be made, which will be held in the Danish capital and where the host city of the 2016 Olympic Games will be decided in July of that upcoming year.

A quote from a IOC press release about Copenhagen 2009:

Looking ahead: the 2009 Olympic Congress

"New means of communications were widely discussed in relation to the 13th Olympic Congress, to be held in Copenhagen in October 2009. This is the first Congress of the millennium, and the first one since the start of the digital revolution. Even if the Olympic Congress is primarily for the Olympic family, it is important that the IOC takes the pulse using the modern methods available to it, and in particular opens up to the public."

Do you think you have something to contribute to the Copenhagen 2009 IOC Congress by having a question, thoughts or ideas about how the Olympic Movement should achieve? If so, then read the link from the IOC website about becoming part of the VIRTUAL Olympic Congress.
