Madrid's 2016 candidature

Madrid is bidding for the Olympic Games again:

"It is once again convinced that, on this occasion, it will be capable of realising this dream shared by all people living in Madrid and Spain, as well as enjoying the many positive effects and new opportunities that the Olympic and Paralympic games is going to bring to the city...

"What's more, the Madrid 2016 Olympic candidature is a project by and for sportsmen and women, something which is evident after looking at the candidature's team, of which many ex-sports stars form a part."

You can enjoy it all at the Madrid 2016 Applicant City website, unveiled just this week -- highly interactive (you get to throw things), in Spanish, French, and English (as you've seen).
