The success of the London bid was announced in Singapore on 2005-07-06.
London will become the first city to host the modern Olympic Games three times, having previously done so in 1908 and in 1948 (documented below).
I must try to buy tickets. I think they go on sale in 2011.
Remind me 30 minutes early:
Don't forget to buy those tickets!
The 1948 Summer Olympics, the Games of the XIV Olympiad, were held in London, England. After a hiatus of 12 years caused by World War II, these were the first Summer Olympics since the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin. The 1940 Games had been scheduled for Tokyo, and later Helsinki as WWII started; the 1944 Games had been provisionally planned for London.
The 1908 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the IV Olympiad, were celebrated in 1908 in London. These games were originally scheduled to be held in Rome. At the time they were the fifth modern Olympic games. However, the Athens Games of 1906 have since been retroactively downgraded by the International Olympic Committee and thus the 1908 Games are seen as the start of the Fourth Olympiad, in keeping with the now-accepted four-year cycle.
