In February, 2006, the IOC announced that the Summer Olympics would be held once again, for the first time in thirty years, in 2010, and asked for bids from interested cities. Five cities from around the world launched bids to host the competition: Auckland, New Zealand, ANZC; Caracas, Venezuela, SAC; Krasnoyark, Soviet Union; New Athens, Confederation of Greece; and New Cairo, Egypt.
After some debate, and for reasons involving security, access, and available facilities, the IOC, at a general meeting in October, choose Auckland to be the site of the Games.
In November of 2009, the IOC announced that they were postponing the Games to 2012, citing international difficulties with travel, which prompted concern over the potential for a lack of competitors being able to attend. It was thought that an extra two years would help greatly in this regard, in addition to enabling Auckland to better prepare. Concerns over timing conflicts with the World Cup, and the toning-down of the football competition that would be required as a result, led to several national federations demanding a change, too. A desire to hold it in a more "traditional" year only bolstered the desires to change the year.
The Olympics prompted a redevelopment of many areas of Auckland, and in several other sights throughout New Zealand, in which the games were to be held – these developments were particularly themed towards sustainability. While budgetary considerations generated some minor criticism over the expense putting on the games would mean, the population looked forward to the event regardless.
It was also agreed, that like during both World Wars when the Olympic Games were cancelled, and their numbers were included in the total number of games held. Anyway, the same would be done for the years when the Games would otherwise have been held since Doomsday.
The ANZC Commonwealth, after considering several cities, decided in the summer of 2006 the city of Auckland would be their candidate to host the games, over Brisbane, Adelaide, and Canberra. Their logic, according to later reports, was that all four were roughly equal in their ability to host the games, but since Australia had hosted the Summer Games in 1956, New Zealand should have an opportunity to try to do so. The only problem the IOC had with the bid, overall, was that when the event would be supposed to be held, it would be rainy in the area. It was remedied by an agreement, as per prior precedent with Melbourne and Mexico City, to move the games a few months later in the year should they win the bid. Basing their decision on security, the ability of potential competitors to travel to the games, and the overall ability of the candidate cities to host the games, the IOC chose Auckland to be the host of the games in October of 2006.
Venezuela and the SAC put forth a joint bid for the city of Caracas. Although the IOC held some interest in the concept, in the end they decided against it, feeling that Venezuela needed more time construct the sporting facilities needed to host the event than the four years originally planned for. Had it been planned from the beginning to be held in 2012, when the games were actually held following a two-year delay, it is thought that this may not have been a problem and Caracas may have won the bid over Auckland.
The Soviet Union placed a bid for their capital city, Krasnoyarsk, to host the games. It is believed to have not chosen because of its isolated location, and because Moscow hosted the last Summer Games held, in 1980, before the events of Doomsday.
The Confederation of Greece, now the Greek Federation, launched a bid for the city of New Athens to hold the games shortly after they were announced. Although the IOC initially was interested in the bid - the IOC believed that since "the Olympic Games started in Greece, it would be fitting that the games would start there again." But with the Sicilian threat and the recent invasions of Tunisia and Sardinia in 2004 on their minds, the IOC decided it would be dangerous for the games to be held anywhere in the vicinity of Sicily, especially on an island. The lack of facilities in New Athens, and the resulting to need to hold many events in other cities throughout Greece, clinched the decision. The IOC readily voted down the proposal.
Egypt bid their capital, New Cairo, for the role of host. However, because it was so recently established, and lacking in facilities on a major level, along with its potential proximity to Sicily raising possible security concerns, New Cairo was not chosen. The climate of the region is not believed to have helped, either.

While most events were held in and around the city of Auckland, others, namely the football tournament, were held in other locations. Because of Queen Elizabeth II Park in Christchurch being rendered unusable in earthquakes during 2010 and 2011, some of these matches ended up having to be held at Lang Park in Brisbane, Australia.

As was evident during the delivery of the torch from Olympia to Zurich prior to the 2010 Winter Games, travel still posed some difficulty. Safety and time were both concerns. And to add to the problem, several NOCs wanted the torch to pay a visit to their countries, wanting their citizens to be able to see it one one hand, and holding that as a delivery of a ceremonial torch for an international event, it should go on an international tour, not a solely domestic one.
Because of this, and after some debate, a decision was reached - more of a compromise than anything.
As in the past, the relay would start out in Greece, where it would be taken around the country. From there, it would be loaded onto the ANZS Swan, a River-class destroyer escort detached from the task force at Malta, at Euesperides. It would then be transported on a general southward route in the Atlantic, stopping in many nations on both sides along the way, doing small relay events in many cities, before docking in Rio de Janeiro, where it would receive a blessing from Pope Anthony I, before being moved over to the ANZS Canterbury, a Leander class frigate, allowing the first vessel to return to its station at Malta.
From there, the vessel would round Cape Horn, and move around the edge of the Pacific Rim, before going around the Indian Ocean and then across it to the Commonwealth, where the last leg, another relay section, would be done throughout New Zealand after stops in the rest of the integral states of the ANZC Commonwealth.
Overall, the relay went well. Small protests occurred in some areas, from those opposed to the overall concept, or trying to raise issues in the global consciousness. These protests did little to disrupt events.
The torch left the ruins of Olympia on April 26th, 2012. Stopping throughout the Greek Federation, and making very quick side trips to Smolyan and New Cairo in the process, it was picked up from by the Swan in Euesperides on May 4th. Heading westwards, the Swan exited the Mediterranean Sea, and went northwards.
After spending several days in Northwestern Europe, the Swan crossed the Atlantic between the Celtic Alliance and Canada. From there, it went southwards, down the coastline of the Americas and through the Caribbean, before crossing over to Africa for a few days. From there, they headed to Brazil, for their date with the Canterbury.
After having the torch blessed in Rio, the Canterbury went south, again hugging the coast. Rounding Cape Horn, it then sailed northwards, eventually turning west and stopping in Hawaii before heading to East Asia. From there, they sailed to the Indian Ocean, and circled around its edges, coming around to Southwestern Africa.
They then crossed the ocean, stopping in Bunbury on the other side. Going around Australia, they headed north of New Zealand, making a stop in Samoa, before arriving in Christchurch on August 26th, where the torch was offloaded from the Canterbury.
It would then spend the next three weeks moving around New Zealand, arriving in Auckland on the 17th, where it was used to light the Olympic Cauldron at the conclusion of the opening ceremony that evening.

Opening and Closing Ceremonies
The Opening and Closing ceremonies for the games were held at Mount Smart Stadium, in Auckland.
For the most part, the opening ceremonies were based on the native Māori, and their culture. Very intricate, the Māori dancers and storytellers told the story of New Zealand's history, from the traditional formation of the islands, through European colonization and Doomsday, to the present. Music from the British Islands, and through the Pacific, featured prominently throughout. Commonwealth artist Keith Urban headed up the musical activities, playing some of his most popular numbers, and at the end of his performance, the national anthem, as the torch was run into the stadium.
Upon arrival into the stadium, the torch was passed off between several members of the Commonwealth military, one from each branch, as jets did a flyby overhead. The last of these troops, a lieutenant in the Commonwealth Navy, passed the torch off at the basin to John Walker, the last New Zealander to win an individual Olympic gold medal prior to Doomsday, who lit the basin and declared the games open.
The closing ceremonies were more low-key. A history of music in New Zealand was the featured part of the ceremonies, with dancers being key features of each. Key in this history was a very somber look at Doomsday, with the dancers dressed in fiery colors.
Following the music, the mayors of Auckland and Rio de Janeiro took the center stage with the head of the IOC. They participated in the traditional flag-lowering, followed by the Brazilian national anthem. A short introduction of Rio to the world, based around the Rio Carnival, followed. A torch was then taken to the basin, and lit from it, then handed to the IOC president, who gave it to the mayor of Rio. The basin was then put out in a puff of smoke, as Keith Urban started to play once again, surrounded by other famous musicians from the Commonwealth. Massive fireworks then went off in the sky, formally ending the games.
Even with the additional two years, there was still issues with travel for many nations. In several cases, nations jointly paid for more bulk travel arrangements, such as the membership of the URC, allowing them to attend when they would not otherwise have been able, and in other cases smaller nations were able to send athletes to the games, accompanying large contingents from nearby countries, such as small contingents from Charleston and Vandalia tagging along with athletes from Kentucky for the trip to Auckland.
Still, there were some nations that simply could not send athletes. It is hoped that this will change for 2016 - at least to some degree.
Several nations, most notably Sicily and Iran, were barred from competition for various reasons. Many states without widespread recognition, however, were allowed to compete, much like Taiwan was allowed to do so before Doomsday, and in recognition of the terms allowing that state to compete following the 1979 recognition by the IOC of the PRC as representing China, instead of the ROC.
A total of 359 nations would send at least one athlete to the games, by far a new record. Many nations that could not otherwise have been able to compete were able to do so with the help of others, as well as free invites to non-qualifiers from nations without any representation. Because of this, the total is slightly inflated, as a majority of nations competing only have one or two athletes. Overall, it is believed that there was slightly more than ten thousand athletes at the games.
At the same time that they delayed the games two years, the IOC also made another decision - what sporting events would be contested at the Games. Several events were dropped by the Committee, who found that there was little interest by its members. Other events, championed by the larger IOC members, found their way into competition when they had never been at the Olympics before.
- Water Polo
- Combined Events
- Field Events
- Track Events
- Field Hockey
- Rugby Sevens
As befitting the traditions of the Olympic Games, the sport of Aussie Rules Football was also included as a demonstration sport.
The winners were ranked by their medal total, followed by the numbers of gold, silver, and bronze medals, in that order. The Commonwealth of Australia and New Zealand topped the medal charts in both the overall number of medals, and number of golds. Many nations set new records with their medal counts.
