No French Bid For 2016 Olympics

Bertrand Delanoe, the mayor of Paris, is still upset about losing out to London in the race to host the 2012 Olympics.

He has decided not to bid for the 2016 Olympics, saying:

"Paris will not be a candidate . . . and if I can support a South American or an African bid, I will do it gladly,"

The Olympics have never been held in Africa or South America. With the 2012 Games in London, it's unlikely the 2016 Games will be held in Europe.
