[QUOTE=Robot69]Olympics generally make a profit in terms of cash. I think a couple of games haven't historically (I'm sure some bean counters will come on here and re-analyse the figures to show they all make a loss). Then there are the regenerations aspects which will be similar to the impact the Commonwealth Games had on East M/cr.[/QUOTE]

I'm pretty sure they always cost more then they bring in, i seem to remember hearing that Sydney took 10 years to recoup their costs. China will never recoup their costs, but no doubt will just write off the cost over time.

And as for regeneration, East Manchester is still a dump all these years after the commonwealth games.
