Norway4ever Posted June 21, 2006 Report Share Posted June 21, 2006 well...heres my list: if 2012 is Europe (London)-It will not go to the netherlands; so forgetta bout it. if 2010 is Vancouver- We can forget about Montreal; plus it hosted in the 80s i think so yup....Its a NO! Monterey Mexico: lets get real here if mexico wants to bid it should be mexico city; otherwise no possible way. Tel Aviv: I highly doubt it so NO; given all the conflict such. Thailand: Bangkok is remodeling it self and becoming a popular destination so possibly a begginers warm up bid; though it will NOT be selected winner or shortlisted. Japan....would in my eyes be welcomed only if it was a Tokyo bid. seriosly outside japans major major cities it wont happen for a while; so Tokyo is a very solid contender!!! YES! Portugal: if it selects lisbon then it has seemingly a chance although the 2016 games should be rewarded to a city outside europe.....But I'd give lisbon Shortlist potential. Kenya: Nairobi=NO but someday YES; Mombasa: NEVER Moscow: Only if sochi does not win 2014 and the 2014 winner does not go to sofia, salzberg, or almaty though Moscow will win someday as it is a strategic and important city/cultural capital.....So its possible YES; but everything has to play out perfectly for it to win the 2016 games St. Petersburg....mabey a bid for 2020 given the circumstances above. India: New Delhi=Someday; so a very pre mature warm up bid I think is a great idea for india! It would not win 2016 though. Rome: yeah i would say SHORTLIST only because of torino......rome only stands a chance due to its history and all.....otherwise i dunno it has potential if the 2014 games dont go to jaca or sofia or salzberg. Argentina: Buenos Aires: YES YES Definatly stands a great chance! :-D Chile: No Way.......It has great potential for the winter games i think......Summer pssibly in the 2030's or 40's....But I am saying NO Way! Madrid: Yes! it stands a chance like Rome; i would have expected madrid to have gotten the games long ago........so yeah i like its chances.....only if the winer games are (2014) not in jaca,salzberg, or sofia. Dubai......I Like IT! there has never been a middle eastern games....and if things remain very stable in the UAE yeah.....it has great chances of winning......only because it is a country free of the terrorist issues mostly; and the city is on the rise.....so the olympics would be a great premiere for this hot new metropolis! Germany: I think stands a great chance later......only with Berlin.....Berlin would and could possibly make the 2016 shortlist :-D but it wouldnt win i dont think! Hamburg: LOL for 2016 :-D United States: I beleive its your turn again.......Yeah definatly .......Los Angeles.....NO......Chicago=YES!!!!!!! san Francisco: YES!!!!!!!!!! housten: hahahaaha NO!....Phily: Nope Someday......mabey if the US waited to bid until the 2020's. remember though the US city has to be capble of measuring up to Tokyo (Seemingly) Istanbul: if association with the EU is granted (not membership) then Yeah its your turn......though the safety budget must be threw the roof and your government must involve the US security wise. (same with Dubai) Rio: No save yourself for 2020 so in a nutshell: Tokyo=Yes Istanbul=Yes (Only if US is Involved) Dubai=Yes Buenos Aires: Definatly YES!!!!!!! Moscow: Possibly Madrid: Yes (dependant on 2014) Rome: Yes dependant on 2014 Lisbon: yeah dependant on 2014 US= Pick major super city (chicago, nyc, san francisco (no LA) and yup) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
