The benefits of hosting the Olympic Games are:

- increased employment - lots of workers needed for construction of facilities etc.

- increased tourism - the host nation is put on show to all the world

- better infrastructure - transport, security etc. are all improved

- feel-good factor across the host nation

The Olympics usually are very expensive (London 2012 budget is somewhere around £9 billion) and so host nations have to weigh up the pros and cons.
