Dubai Olympic Games bid 2016

It is difficult to find confirmation of an actual bid (or announcement of a bid) by Dubai for the 2016 Olympics. It appears to be misunderstanding or misinterpretation of a couple of comments referring to Dubai Sports City as a potential Olympic Games venue when the project was announced. A Wikipedia page dedicated to Dubai's 2016 bid gives references to articles about Olympic Games bids, or about Dubai in general, but none with information about a bid from Dubai. In May 2004, one report quoted an official who made it clear that Dubai was not considering hosting the Olympic Games before 2020, and following that statement there were no further official or unofficial announcements of a bid being considered for the 2016 games, despite what several reports from 2004-2007 claimed.
