Olympic host nations

Good poll, but you seem to misunderstand how the Olympics work. The games are awarded to cities (eg London, Paris, etc.), not countries.

Oh, I know that it is the cities that are rewarded, but using the countries is more practical for a poll. It would be overwhelming to list all the cities in the world, so I used the countries. I also think the country is more important to people than the city.

Wales has never received the Olympic games, but it's not down on your list!

We'd host the games far better then London, and spend far less as well.

Why isn't Wales down on the list? We've never hosted the Olympics! And we'd do a better job of it than London as well; far less money would be wasted.
