   The modern Olympic Games are the biggest events ever organized in peace time. They have a universal impact. The city which hosts the games welcomes the whole world and it's a huge and complex task, which needs more and more preparation time. In fact, these days seven years are required for the 1)host city to set up the Olympic event.

    It's a crucial task since the future of the games depends on how accurate this choice is. The host city holds the destiny of the Olympic movement and the 2)Evaluation1 Commission is a vital element in that decision making. Because of this huge responsibility, the 3)bid cities are carefully chosen and must undergo a pre-selection round. And then comes the main test feared by the five candidates remaining in the competition. That's when the commission visits the cities to evaluate their candidateship.

  Now in order to select the best candidature the evaluation commission has been testing the venues3 and the capacity and potential of the cities in particular. The members of the evaluation commission are representatives of the 4)IOC, the International Federations4 and National Olympic Committees.

   The commission has former athletes as well as world specialists in different areas like the environment. A total of 16 people are working for the commission and they all know what it takes for a successful Olympic Games organization. The commissioners5 carefully review the candidatures. Each of them has a 600-page file which answers the 149 questions asked by the commission. And the sports venues are also inspected. Because the evaluation is seven years away from the games themselves, the presentations of the cities are more or less virtual.

   Often the members of the commission have to imagine that the wild field in front of them is actually going to become a magnificent Olympic venue2. The commission members can only rely on their experience and on their expertise6. After their on-sight visits, the Evaluation Commission met at the IOC headquarters in 5)Lausanne in order to produce a report based on their conclusions about the candidatures.

   Now that report is highly anticipated. Since the 6)Salt Lake City scandal, IOC members are not allowed to go to the bid cities themselves. They'll have access to this report on May the 13th. Itll be the only basis for them to decide whether or not each city is eligible7.

   In Asia, the city of Osaka represents the candidature of Japan, which successfully set up for last winter games in Nagano. Japan also hosted the summer games in Tokyo in 1964.

   Competing with Asia is the Canadian city of Toronto. Canada and the United States have always been very much involved in the games and both have the capacities to set up the games once a decade. The last summer games in North America were in Atlanta in 1996.

   Two European cities are also in competition. The first is Istanbul. It's the third time in a row the Turkish capital has applied8 for the games. Turkey, being at the crossroads of two continents, Europe and Asia, uses its successive candidatures as a way to improve its sports venues and provide the youth of the country with better sports infrastructures9.

   Finally, Paris is the other European city competing for the games of 2008. The country of Baron10 7)Pierre de Coubertin, the inspiration behind the modern games, hopes to host the summer games for the third time. The last summer games in the French capital were in 1924. In 86 Paris lost the bid against Barcelona. It offers a mixture of sport and culture.

Vice11 Premier12 Li Lanqing: Indeed, it is our delight to welcome all guests with open arms in Beijing in year 2008. I am sure you will have a great Games in Beijing.

Yanglan: I believe Beijing will prove to be a land of wonders to all of you.

   最后,巴黎是另一个申办2008年奥运会的欧洲城市。男爵皮埃尔·顾拜旦的国家,现代奥运会的精神来源,希望能第三次举办夏季奥运会。上一次在法国首都举行的夏季奥运会是在1924年。1986年,巴黎在申奥过程中输给了巴塞罗那。它现在(向世界)展示的是一种体育与文化的结合。李岚清副总理: 确实,我们期待着2008年在北京张开双臂欢迎各位的到来。我保证,北京的奥运会将是一届伟大的奥运会。
