Moscow somehow loses bid for 2010 Games

It’s happened. The unthinkable. WE BEAT MOSCOW. The Games of the First Summer Youth Olympiad in 2010 have been awarded to Singapore.

I always felt Moscow had the stronger bid for the Games. As has been pointed out, the IOC were in favour of Singapore probably because we’ll never get a chance to host the full thing – Moscow hosted in 1980. So there’re celebrations at the Padang at City Hall tonight while up in the bitter cold and snow in Moscow they’ll be sore and disappointed.

I just find it funny that we probably won’t win a single medal in an event we’re hosting…
