Just so everyone is aware of the voting procedure and the possibilty of Chicago losing King Constantine's vote, Honorary and Honor Members do not get to vote. King Constantine is an Honorary Member of the IOC, thus he did not have a vote for the 2016 Summer Games host.

The information on who can and cannot vote can be found here, under '2016 Host City Election Procedure', then selecting '2016 Voting Membership'.

I think it's what you do, what you achieve, that makes you special.

At least Barack Obama had to go through a very tough campaign to become leader. Frederik and Joachim were just born royal. The accident of birth made them royal. They haven't done anything significant (yet).

The only male royal I admire is Britain's Prince Charles. He started his Prince's Trust when he was in his twenties. THAT is special, in my opinion.

If anything, I suspect this had a positive effect on the Committee. I was involved with both the Atlanta and Salt Lake City games, and as far as the IOC was concerned, the more security and the tighter the controls, the better.

It's also important to remember that the Secret Service has one duty in a case like this: Protect Michelle Obama. That's quite different from the IOC's general security for the entire event. Foreign dignitaries generally travel with their own security and coordinate with additional resources in their host countries. There was nothing unusual about the Secret Service's action in this case.

Although Constantine may have found it annoying, I doubt he would have taken it too personally. He has spent his entire life among people who are very well and closely guarded, so he would understand the issue. He has also lived in relative anonymity for the last 30 years, so he's probably also accustomed to things like this.

It seems as if HRH Prince Willem-Alexander has kept a rather low profile during his attendance at the IOC this session in Denmark. I would like to know what he is working on for/at the IOC. Has there been a press release stating such information?

The remaining timetable is as follows:

The Olympic Congress closes today. The delegates will have discussed the five sub-themes (Athletes, the Games, Structure of the Olympic Movement, Olympism and Youth, the Digital Revolution).

October 7th to 9th: 121st IOC Session:
Election of IOC President and IOC Members
Election of new sports - golf? rugby?
Grand Closing Reception in Tivoli Garden.

There are some nice, downloadable photos by the Media Centre, of Crown Prince Frederik, Jacques Rogge etc.

Thank you Renata4711, this is the information on the remaining timeline and agenda that I was looking for on the IOC conference. It really takes so much work from so many dedicated people to keep the Olympics the wonderful worldly event that it is.

I'd take rugby over golf! I was watching it in a sports bar during lunch once - first time I've ever seen it played. Man is that a brutal game! During the hour or so we were there, there must have been half a dozen guys carted off the field with head/neck stabilizers on!
