It's London!

The International Olympic Committee has awarded London the Games of the XXX Olympiad in 2012.

London edged out Paris in the final voting today in Singapore.

The other three finalist cities, Madrid, Moscow and New York City were eliminated in earlier voting.

Paris had been considered the front runner, and had received excellent recommendations from every corner of the Olympic community. However, London presented a strong case over the past few weeks, and won over the members of the IOC.
