London wins 2012 Olympics

It was announced this morning at around 7:50am (EST), in Singapore, that London, UK has won the Olympic Bid to host the 2012 Olympics.

http://nytimes.com/2005/07/06/sports...rtner=homepage


For those following the vote, it was a HUGE upset win for the English. Paris was the front runner for much of the process and was favored to win since it has failed twice, since 1992, in its bids to land the Summer Olympics.

Moscow was eliminated on the first round of balloting, garnering only 15 votes.
New York was eliminated on the second round of balloting, getting only 16 votes.
Madrid was eliminated on the third round of balloting, mustering only 31 votes.
London won in a close vote, 54-50 over Paris.


People's thoughts? I'll def go to London to see the Olympics. Love the city. Although it would have been nice to have them in NYC.
