I'm almost speechless. The International Olympic Committee has announced that London will be holding the Olympic Games in 2012, having beaten Paris 54-50 in the fourth round of voting. The result is a testament to Lord Sebastian Coe, who delivered a polished presentation that London could be proud of.
Interest in the result is so high that, as of this moment, the London 2012 website is down. It is possible that it has been taken offline for a post-announcement redress, or something like that.
