2012 Olympic games may be held in St.Petersburg.

C:\Мои документы\moscow_06.jpg Russian sport and political authorities consider the idea to host 2012 Olympic games in Russia. According to Vitaly Smirnov, the head of the International Olympic Committee, we can propose Petersburg-Moscow for election. It is impossible to organize sailing vessel competition in Moscow.

2008 Beijing will host Olympic games. If it was any European city – e.g. Paris – we would have less chances.
