While we're three years away from the 2016 Olympics in Rio De Janeiro, tomorrow we'll find out the location of the 2020 Olympics.

Madrid's bid is based on a modest budgets after Spain's recent economic woes. 

Istanbul is proposing a $20 billion Games, while Tokyo is planning a space-age type Olympic Stadium.
