One ironic thing about 1936 Olympics is that the runner-up candidate city to host them was Barcelona. International Olympics Commitee chose Berlin because Second Republic had been just proclaimed in Spain. By choosing not to give Spanish Republic a boost, Commitee indirectly by choosing then Weimar Republic's capital Berlin as host did give Nazi regime a boost since it was proclaimed two years after. Same with rejecting Madrid for 2012, because of terrorist attempts in 2004. Days after London being chosen, London terrorist bombs. Sometimes fate does unexpected things.
