Just wondering not knowing Paris, where you put all this crap ? Still got W.C. stadium yeh ?
I did read that the whole Olympic bidding process has changed from who can build the best stadiums and swimming pools ect to now they look at what the country already have and utilise them.
A big change in spending which is so much better as so many stadiums built for the Olympics end up derelict

They are renovating the original Olympic stadium from 1924 for the hockey, building a new pool for the diving and artistic swimming and using existing stadia for everything else. The sailing will be in Marseilles and the surfing in Tahiti.

Its a shame this doesn't happen with the FIFA world cup.
So many stadiums being built and then pulled down.

More than 6,500 migrant workers from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have died in Qatar since it won the right to host the World Cup 10 years ago.

The findings, compiled from government sources, mean an average of 12 migrant workers from these five south Asian nations have died each week since the night in December 2010 when the streets of Doha were filled with ecstatic crowds celebrating Qatar’s victory.
