The five cities shortlisted to host the 2004 Olympic Games are Athens, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Rome and Stockholm. They were whittled down from an original line-up of 11, the eliminated bidders being Istanbul, Lille, Rio de Janeiro, San Juan, Seville and St Petersburg. The successful bid logos – all symbolic in some way – were created by Rafaella Barba-Anagnostakou for Athens, an in-house design team for Buenos Aires, Sampson Associates and Rose Dendy-Young Studios for Cape Town, design group SCS for Rome, and Gabor Palotay for Stockholm. The Swedes’ bid identity is based on Carl Milles’ sculpture Man and Pegasus. The winner will be chosen on 5 September.
