Here's how the votes were when the international olympic
comittee gave the 2000 Olympics to Sydney:

        1. round: 2. round: 3. round: 4. round:

Sydney     30      30         37         45
Beijing    32      37         40         43
Manchester 11      13         11          -
Berlin      9       9          -          -
Istanbul    7       -          -          -

Beijing in other words had the largest number of votres in
the three first rounds of voting, but lost 45-43 in the final one.
The total number of votes cast fell from 89 to 88 after 2. round
because some so far unidentifies IOK-member left the hall.

Congratulations, Sydney!

This is very interesting. The votes for Manchester fell from 13 to 11
between the 2. and 3. round. So most likely, the IOC member who left was
a Manchester-supporter. But in addition, one person who voted for Manchester
in the 2. round must have swiched to Beijing in the 3. round when Manchester
was still in the race!

Just another anecdote that makes me more skeptic about the IOC and the way it
deals with the Olympic bidding.
