Secondly, Turkey is a developing country and the Olympic has always been held in developed countries.

Thirdly, Istanbul is a beautiful city with a lot of history and beautiful buildings.  Therefore, it porbably would have been a exciting place for athletes and spectators to visit.                                   (J.F)
