    Congrats to London 2012!!

    Although I sincerely think London was a worse candidature than Madrid 2012, I am happy that London will host the Olympic Games rather than Paris. Here we are too tired that France always wins in this kind of elections, as in the last one they won us about hosting the ITER. It is the third time Paris has been defeated when pursuing the Olympic games, hahaha!.

    I wasnt really concerned to good old jacque opened his mouth since then i really wanted us to win it.

    I think london deserved to win, purely because it has been many years since great britain has hosted the tournemant.
