London 2012 was the successful bid for the 2012 Summer Games, to be held in London with most events taking place in Stratford, New ham. The British Olympic Association had been working on the bid since 1997. In December 2000 the report was shown to Government ministers.

Following three failed consecutive United Kingdom bids Birmingham in 1992 and Manchester in 1996 and 2000, the decision was made to bid with London, given the clear indication that it was the only city in the UK that had a chance of being selected by the International Olympic Committee when put up against other world cities in a competitive bidding process. On 6 July 2005 at its 117th Session in Singapore, the IOC awarded the London Bid with the rights to host the Games of the XXX Olympiad. The city beat out the favorite Paris 2012 on the fourth and final ballot 54 to 50 and will become the first city to host the Games three times.

The Winter Olympics as well as the Summer Olympics have not been held in Toronto Canada as of 2010.
