    Because the IOC picked it? - what's your exact question?

    It'll be great hopefully anyway, the two sporting events I want to go and see during my lifetime are the Olympics and the World Cup. So this will cover 50% of that wish.

    I find it amusing how China's serious business is being followed by one of the few countries in the world that doesn't take itself seriously at all.

    I agree. I did think it was a bit ott stage schoolish though. So maybe LONDON WHY was a little dramatic but something about the style just put me off. Still, I really hope we make it good fun.

    edit: just as a note, our logo is the very definition of craptacular.

    The logo for London 2012 is pretty terrible, why couldn't have we come up with something like the one they had for Barcelona 1992, that was a great logo.

    Hehe the logo is shocking. It just says everything about how tacky and committee-designed our Olympics will be.

    The logo:


    It's Lisa Simpson erm... erm... "playing" with Vivi
