PARIS in in final position with LONDON for the Olympic Games organisation 2012.

For knowing who is the winner we must wait 1 hour!




EDIT : And the winner is.... LONDON!
BRAVO!

I guess the French must be terribly disappointed. I heard on the radio that it's the third time in 20 years that they were a candidate for organizing the Olympics.

I had not really a preference, both Paris and London are close to Belgium. The Olympics are always a lot more exciting for me when they take place in Europe.

Ohh, I forgot they were announcing that today. Good for London. I thought it would be Paris, really.

So, upcoming Olympic Games:
2006 Winter Games - Torino, Italy
2008 Summer Games - Beijing, China
2010 Winter Games - Vancouver, Canada
2012 Summer Games - London, England

They were being really smug on the news earlier, it was funny. An English reporter was in Paris, grinning while saying how disappointed the French were.

I didn't really care where they were held, but good luck to London. I hope this helps some of the poorer areas.

I'm surprised London got it, but pleased too 

It's such a long way off though, I'll be 25 then!

I think London will be a great place to host the 2012 Olympic Games. I'll be honest, though, I was thinking it was going to be Paris. America had tried to do it in New York, but I don't think that'd be a very good idea, and apparently none of the Olympic Committee did, either. Heh.

I thought it would be Paris too, but when it came to the videos on why each city should have it, London's was really good.

I'm not really into sport that much, but I think it will be good (but then, I do live in London, so I'm probably biased)

LOL ... well, you may be, but I'm not ... and I totally think the Olympic Games will be great in London. I always watch the Olympics. That's kind of odd because I never play sports. Bleck. I hate activity if it's mine.

When it was showing all different areas watching, and then cheering on the announcement I got quite giddy about it all.
Then I thought... I'll be 25! Jeez, that's ages away! lol

That kind of put a downer on it... but still. Yay, London!

I always get really into random sports at this kind of thing.
In the last Commonwealth games I was obsessively into Curling.

Anyway, Congrats to London!

Well, after what French Prime minister said about English food, and English people, I don't think France really deserved the games. He totally ruined it for all of France. And believe me, I love France.

But, I'm glad England got them, the games are going to be great!

Go London! I'm glad they got the games, but I wouldn't really have minded if Paris did win.
