I don't think one can make comparisons because each country has a totally different attitude. The Athens games were special because the Olympic Games started in Greece in ancient times. So the organisers had a lot of tradition to draw from. The London version was aimed to please the British, it was rather homely and rather puzzling at times. I did not like all the pop music and felt a little bored with the National Health contribution thjat went on for too long and I am a Brit. The Athens games were pretty incredible, I enjoyed the drama of it all. So, not better, just different.

In terms of money, it's going to be practically impossible to top the $40 billion that China spent. It was a pretty good Olympics. Some controversy but nothing really awful like the boycotts of 1980 & 1984. No violence like in Munich or Atlanta. The Chinese did a good job. I will be surprised if the British can top it but I hope they do!
