Ahhhh - It would be a shame not to award them the Games for 2016. :)

Dang! But Tokyo's a been there-done that thing. Besides, I think a 'new Tokyo Rose will surface to torpedo their 2016 bid. Ha!

Don't worrry too much. The IOC likes to have them there so it looks like there is a real race going on, but just like 2008 ultimately the Japanese will be screwed _ far too soon after Beijing to go back to Asia.

Yeah, exactly. I can't see 2016 going back to Asia so soon after Beijing, either. And especially if Pyeongchang wins 2014. If anything, I'd be more concerned with the European bids than Tokyo. The IOC will probably toy with them so they can come back for 2020 & then maybe give it to them.

Well actually, if London keeps on their track of becoming the "New Montreal" then Tokyo might get a chance sooner than expected.

*insert winky emoticom here* :)
