Olympic 2012 bids: the five still standing

Paris is well-served with world-class venues and has an advantage that its Games would all be relatively central, providing the "compact" venue that organisers have asked for. The centrepiece would be the 80,000-seat Stade de France, built for the country's World Cup football triumph in 1998. A media centre and swimming pool are planned close by with an Olympic village in the central, 17th arrondissement. France also won plaudits for its successful hosting of the 1998 World Cup and the capital has excellent transportation.
Odds: 6/4
