  • 3. Olympics (London)• The Olympic Games is a major international event featuring summer and winter sports, in which thousands of athletes participate in a variety of competitions. The Olympic Games have come to be regarded as the world’s foremost sports competition where more than 200 nations participate.
  • 4. London Olympics• London was selected as the host city on 6 July 2005 during the 117th IOC Session Session in Singapore, defeating Moscow, New York City, Madrid and Paris after four rounds of voting. The successful bid was headed by former Olympic champion Sebastian Coe.
  • 5. London Olympics• The Olympics prompted a redevelopment of many of the areas of London in which the games are to be held – particularly themed towards sustainability. While the budgetary considerations have generated some criticism, the Games will make use of many venues which were already in place before the bid, including Wembley Stadium, Wembley Arena, Wimbledon All England Club, Lords Cricket Ground, The O2 Arena, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, and the Excel Centre.
  • 6. Why was London hosted in the Olympics• Cities have to bid to host the Olympic Games. At the deadline for bids for the 2012 games, 9 cities had submitted their bids. These were: Havana, Istanbul, Leipzig, London, Madrid, Moscow, New York, Paris and Rio de Janeiro. It then goes to a second round, to narrow the field. The IOC reduced the cities to: London, Madrid, Moscow, New York, and Paris. The next step is for the IOC to send inspectors to the candidate cities. After the inspections comes the evaluation of the reports, and then a vote. At the voting sessions, Moscow, New York and Madrid were ruled out, and it came down to a vote between London and Paris. London won by 54 votes to 50.
