NOTE: Not about the games themselves, just about the cities

NOTE 2: Not including the winter cities with less than 100,000 people.

NOTE 3: As I'm currently backpacking through South America, don't expect too much in the way of consistent timing.

Cities:

Amsterdam, Netherlands
Antwerp, Belgium
Athens, Greece
Atlanta, USA
Barcelona, Spain
Beijing, China
Berlin, Germany
Calgary, Canada
Grenoble, France
Helsinki, Finland
Innsbruck, Austria
London, United Kingdom
Los Angeles, USA
Melbourne, Australia
Mexico City, Mexico
Montreal, Canada
Moscow, Russia
Munich, Germany
Nagano, Japan
Oslo, Norway
Paris, France
Rome, Italy
Salt Lake City, USA
Sapporo, Japan
Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina
Seoul, South Korea
St. Louis, USA
Stockholm, Sweden
Sydney, Australia
Tokyo, Japan
Turin, Italy
Vancouver, Canada
----------
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Sochi, Russia

Round one will be to nominate either Rio de Janeiro or Sochi to join the list. Please vote for the city you would prefer to enter the competition. Voting will remain open for at least 24 hours.

So we're voting for the city we want NOT to be eliminated?

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

The way I understand it, whichever one of Rio or Sochi gets the most votes will be added to the list, and the other one will be eliminated.

Guessing it has to do with Canadian success?

Edit: The cities that won the right to host over Canadian cities.

Yes Cheesy. Beijing being the biggest disappointment, since the Toronto bid for 2008 was so much more superior.
