Nine cities submitting bids to host the 2012 Summer Olympics and 2012 Paralympics were recognised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The Committee shortlisted five of them-London, Madrid, Moscow, New York City, and Paris-from which London eventually prevailed- it will become the first city to host the Olympic Games for a third time.

The bidding process for the 2012 Olympics was considered one of the most hotly contested in the history of the IOC. Paris was seen by some as the front-runner for much of the campaign, but skilful lobbying by Londons supporters and an inspirational final presentation by Sebastian Coe led to the success of its bid. Madrid was regarded as one of the favourites, but the city did not receive enough votes to surpass Paris and London.

The fact that Spain held the Olympics in 1992 was also a major detriment to Madrids bid.
