London was favored, so I'm not surprised. This is pretty cool.

Do you mean Favored or favourite? London was never favourite for the whole contest! Paris was all along! The underdog triumphs again!!!

Actually, Paris was considered to be the clear front runner in the voting given that this was their third attempt since 1992.

Why would you have chosen France? Old, dated, out of sync country who could only cirticise London instead of worrying about themselves!! We will be creating a new dream for generations to come. All the french did was show off about their (admitedly) great history. the Olympic games are about creating new opportunities and developments for the future.

I am surprised, the corruption of the IOC really should have favoured the French bid. I wonder how much in bribes it cost to get get this games.

I am still bitter that Kevin Gosper's daughter got the first bit of the torch relay instead of Yianna Souleles, what a sodding joke of a system.

I don't care about politics, I just like the city of Paris more than the city of London...as a destination.
