Where should 2012 Olympics be held?
Posted 8/8/08
It should definitely not be held in an African country. First of all they'd never be able to provide sufficient money to fund it. Even London is struggling to build and renovate its city with the finances that it has and London's like the second richest city in the world.

London was a good choice at first when compared against all the other cities that was competing that year but now it's just becoming problematic. Many Londoners are hugely resentful of it. Think of all the taxes they have to pay. Some parts of Africa may be ridiculously rich but they are corrupt. The benefits they are getting in return are very slight to what they would potentially be paying up.

I'm looking forward to the Vancouver Olympics in 2016 actually. I think they picked a good city for that.
London does deserve to host it in 2012 although they should get rid of that ridiculous logo.

Vancouver? Don't you mean 2010 Winter?

London was probably the best site for 2012.

As for 2016, Rio De Janeiro seems like the best choice to me--there has yet to be an Olympiad held in South America.

I think it should be in Europe or somewhere in South East Asia (If the problems going to be gone). Ehh Europe mostly.

if we're talking Winter OG then Vancouver is the next to host in 2010....for the Summer Olympics I think London for 2012 was a good choice and for 2016 I'd say New York since it's also on the list.
