    Baku, Azerbaijan and Doha, Qatar were eliminated. The final three candidates now are Istanbul, Madrid, and Tokyo.

    As I understand, Istanbul has the inside track, which is good. It's about time they host it.

    As nice as it would be to go back to my former motherland for the Olympics, how the hell can Spain afford to host the games in their economic state? Plus, I don't like people from Madrid, lol.

    I think Istanbul would be an intriguing choice.

    South Korea has the winter in 2018, London has 2012, and Sochi has 2014 winter, so yes Turkey I think will win it.
