France Loses!

Congratulations to England! Today the Olympic Committee selected London as the Host City for the 2012 Olympics. It was an upset win for London over Paris, which was considered the favorite. Once again, the English defeat the French!

United Kingdom


Here is a Yahoo article with a great title: London Upsets Paris to Win 2012 Olympics.

New York City was one of the five cities being considered. The other two were Madrid, Spain, and Moscow, Russia. I must agree with President Bush's comments that, "I'm sorry New York didn't get it, but I'm thrilled for London."

Congratulations London!!!
