    Default London 2012!

    Has been anticipating this victory. After all, its just merely a year ago when Lord Sebastian Coe who brought the Olympic momentum back to London.

    Great one!

    Sob!! Not for me!

    I wanted either Paris or New York to win, especially Paris since they have already lost 2 sessions/bids.

    No offence to London supporters but the Brits have given me the impression of being roudy and barbaric, especially after any of those major soccer matches. Their fans will start creating a lot of trouble on the streets and even start whacking fans from other teams. Furthermore the recent events of "happy slapping" just doesn't appear how could London win the bid.

    The reason they won was mainly because the appearance of Tony Blair, Princess Anne and David Beckham, particularly Tony Blair.

    Poor Paris!!

    Hi.

    I'm kind of disappointed too ... was hoping Paris would win the bid.

    I suppose it's time to move on and look forward to a great London 2012!

    Did anyone notice how the conference room cleared after the winner was announced? Only the Brits stayed behind. What poor sportsmanship!

    London did well. They deserve to win. But Paris n Madrid were in my mind every as good. Too bad only one can win.

    From the movie Braveheart:

    King Edward Longshanks: Leave us. (Punches his son.) Wallace has already killed the magistrate and taken control of the town. Stand up. Stand up. In the morning, I depart for France to press our rights there, and I leave you here to quell this little rebellion, understood? Is it? One day you will be a king. At least try to act like one. (The King leaves and Isabella runs over to help the Prince.)

    Enemies then, enemies now.

    Frm those warring days during the Dark Times, the fight for International Language right up to the Olympics race.

    Seems that they share a love-hate relationship.
