If the swimming leg of the triathlon is held in the East River, my money is on Cosmo Kramer.

im pissed off about the fact that its going to either moscow, madrid, nyc, paris or london.....

usa had a games a recent as 1996, they should wait at least another 10 years

spain had barcelona not that long ago

paris and london have already had it numerous times

moscow had it in the 70's, still relatively recent.

Rio would have been a perfect location but it was rejected

Leipzig would benefit the city as a whole and be a unique location

Istanbul would also have a brilliant effect on turkey as a whole as they grow in significance as a nation in the world.

It should go to Rio the 2012 olympics, but the conservative boring ioc havent got the guts to try sumfin different

Out of those 5 however, i gotta say that id only be interested in the games if they are in paris or nyc.......but it still should be in rio or istanbul

Vancouver will host the 2010 Winter Olympics. I still think it will cost more than what we have been told but I am optimistic.

The big advantage NY has over it's competitors is that the major US televisoin networks want a North American venue so that the large North American viewing audience can watch the games live during 'normal' hours.
