next olympics after London

later today they are announcing who has won the bid for the 2016 olympics.

the runners and riders are chicago, tokyo, rio and madrid.

chicago is the marginal favourite but there has been a bit of skullduggery (as is the olympic way) in that macdonalds, which has thier head office in chicago, said that oh, they might not renew thier massive global sponsorship if chicago didn't win. that's a bit naughty of them.
anyway their chief exec later said that the chap who had said that had no right to do so and it wasnt true but everyone got the message all right.

I am going for Rio.

Rio should get it, I don't think they have had an Olympic Games in S America so it aout time. Wouldn't be surprised if the Yanks get it again mind, theres more skullduggery goes on in this than picking a world cup venue.

its well corrupt.
it is no coincidence that the company that routinely wins the merchandising bid to sell all the badges and pins, a massive money spinner, happens to have a couple of former ioc members ion the board.

the bidding is happening as we speak in denmark. Mr and Mrs Obama - just popped in, she is from chicago.

Madrid has been slagging rio off, which is not really allowed, saying too much crime there for a games to be safe.

I would like rio to get it, tokyo i think for them it is too close to beijing - next time for them, madrid winning would mean 3 european games on the trot, i don't see that so i think it is down to rio or chicago - it is very close though, any of them could get it really. Normally its a two horse race at this stage but not this time.

Chicago and Tokyo eliminated. Between Rio and Madrid now.

Either would be ace - although I agree with the logic of South America getting it.

Right chuffed for 'em

I think that a lot of athletes are as corrupt as the Olympic Commitee, so many drugs in that game these days. I only like the hurdles, and I also think there are too many sports in the olympics. That is all.

Rio loves sport and loves ceremony and they are pleased they have both, reported the BBC. They have been able to temporarily forget that there are massive concerns regarding their transport system and the very real concern of thieves and crime in Brazil, the BBC continued.

It helps a country get the Olympics if they are not actually fighting a war. Crime?  didnt hurt our bid did it. *Regrets first statement*

I cant help think that we had a lot to live up to after China but Brazil have little to do after London.

brazil is a less mature market so may be better for getting sponsors. the ioc has had all sorts of sponsor problems latley
