Madrid was the second most valored city some months ago only 0.5 point behind Paris and with a possitive difference of more than 1 point from London or New York...

I hope Madrid wins so badly. I think it still has a shot, it would be awesome to have the Olympics in my home-town, even though I dont live there now, im still there every summer.
