There's an interesting parallel to be made with cities in the US building stadiums for NFL teams there.

So letís have some locations for summer games and some for winter games and cycle through them. In the interest of paying homage to the ideals of bringing people together in the name of athletics, we can put a permanent Olympics location on every continent, except Antarctica but that was probably obvious enough. Though one of the locations should be Athens in the interest of paying respect to the Ancient Greeks who came up with the idea.
Good idea. And the locations should also be used for other things during the off season instead of just sitting there empty.
