Madrid should have got the 2012 Olympics to begin with. It was a joke that London was given the bid.

It's a shame because they are highly unlikely to get the 2016 Games now, it will probably go to Tokyo or Chicago.

Only Felipe made the speech. The others at the cocktail party divided into groups talking to the evaluation committe members. Infanta Pilar's son Bruno and daughter Simoneta were also there.

I agree. Madrid should host the 2016 Olympic Games, however, I do believe that Tokyo is a strong candidate. I am not amaze of London's performance during the finale of the Beijing Olympics. Compared to Beijing, London's was pretty boring with Leona Lewis singing . I'm rooting for Madrid and Tokyo!!!!

Can we have a better picture of Letizia's purple dress?

Not sure where you are coming from - Madrid didn't even make it to the final round of voting for 2012 - Paris was considered the front runner but was defeated by London. London did a fantastic pitch headed by Lord Coe but I agree with madeleine victoria that their presentation in Beijing was a disgrace.

These days the public is not so enthusiastic about being awarded the Olympics any more. There is a lot of cost, especially felt in the economic downturn. Plus, many locals have to endure the inconvieniences in the build up and finally can't even afford a ticket.

Good luck to Madrid because they would provide a fantastic atmosphere for the Olympic Summer Games and as a Eurpean citizen I will appreciate the TV coverage during DAYtime I just feel that Chicago will have better chances for various reasons (another continent, Obama-factor).

i wouldn't say madrid is the most appropriate candidate. i would like it to be madrid, but i think other cities deserve it better. brazil, for example, never hosted any games, while at the same time we are hosting the 2012 ones in london, so i guess some other continent deserves to do them afterwards. besides, it's scorching hot in madrid in the summer! although they are the only city who placed a bet both for 2012 and 2016, so maybe they will see their eagerness. that said, i don't know which city has the best or most facilities or is preparing for it the best. let the best one win.

coming back to letizia and felipe, i'm glad they are visiting cordoba. it's such a beautiful place.

When New York was out, all the countries who previously voted New York sided with London the next round, that helped eliminating Madrid narrowly. ZP lost a political battle, but his government and the Spanish press had Prince Albert as a scapegoat for questioning the security of Madrid because of March 11th . But all those countries probably had already decided whom to vote before heading to Singapore (before Albert's question) .

yes it's more political than anything else, a fact that what will be in favour of chicago 2016 (especially as zp continues to annoy the us and their allies ). to be fair, spain already had summer games not too long ago, barcelona 1992, a more obvious reason why they didn't get it back then and probably won't get it now. only from a common sense perspective, other countries and continents should get their chance too.
