Félicitations! Moi aussi c'est mon rêve que ma ville soit hôte des Jeux Olympiques. Alors si mon calcul est bon, la décision sera prise à l'été 2005!

Ah 2012 seems so far away, i don't even care. I think London is also a candidate. But with their lame transport services, i don't think it would be a great idea.

From the Globe and Mail:

So far, declared candidates for the 2012 Games include New York, Madrid, Leipzig, Germany, and Havana, Cuba. London, Moscow and either Rio de Janeiro or Sao Paulo, Brazil, might also register before the deadline.

Toronto may also jump in, depending on the fate of Vancouver's bid for the 2010 Winter Games. That host city will be decided July 2 in Prague.

How exciting! Paris would be a beautiful spot, who wouldnt want to play tennis in RG and who wouldnt want to play volleyball under the Eiffel Tower.

I guess the tennis players wouldnt be too excited about the tennis though, only the big names get to play in the Olympics anyway and they play at RG every year. It would certainly be a good venue though. I guess if NY gets it they get to play at the home of the US Open.

OMG, and this just reminded me of a weird dream I had last night about playing volleyball and being unable to get the ball over the wall (yes, it was a wall not a net) no matter how hard I tried..crazy!
