  1. unless no bid from Europe and N. America cities or all of them withdraw from the candidacy process, then they may be awarded to host WOG 2026.
  2. They will give press release on Monday afternoon local time to confirm that Durban will not host CG2022. http://www.iol.co.za/sport/more-sport/commonwealth-games-not-coming-to-durban-8169843
  3. most likely move to Liverpool for the 2022 edition. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-merseyside-39118266
  4. Another article that praises Sapporo on how they manage the Olympic Venues legacy which that they still use them post-Olympic Games and were used during the recent Asian Winter Games. http://aroundtherings.com/site/A__59234/Title__Sapporo-Setting-the-Standard/292/Articles
  5. The Sapporo 2017 Asian Winter Games is officially closed today and the OCA flag handed over back to OCA as the next edition Asian Winter Games will be decided at OCA General Assembly in Ashgabat later this year.
  6. For Asia, I think Busan, South Korea, also has chance.. I read somewhere they want to have it there. For America, Guadalarjara maybe have chance if 2028 is not awarded to any American cities.
  7. maybe back to Asia..
  8. ONOC seems keen to participate in all OCA's events. Will in the end these two continental associations merge together? Interesting to keep following the update on this matter. http://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1047370/updates/26954
  9. Local Organization Committee needs to pay travel grants at least to NOCs and NPCs. http://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1045092/rio-2016-finally-pay-travel-grants-to-international-paralympic-committee-three-weeks-after-deadline
  10. what do you think if paralympics merge with Special Olympics and Deaflympics... seems these two events can still survive without tapping to Olympic. And perhaps if these 3 organizations could join force together to have single mega big events.. they will have better exposure.
  11. if in the end there are no strong WOG 2026 bid from Europe and North America, perhaps Asia will host three consecutively the Winter Olympic Games.
  12. that's also possible.. but the travel grants to Olympic family and Paralympic family including IFs, then NOCs and NPCs are quite huge also. If they can split into two different bid mean different host city, and the same situation like Rio can be avoided which they move the Paralympic budget to Olympic. or different time frame so they can split the budget into two financial years.
  13. Perhaps it's time to separate Olympics and Paralympics bid. Since these two games governed by different organization and maybe can reduce the cost of host city to host two games in the same year. Or perhaps another idea is staging these two games in different year but in the same bid.
  14. Sir Rols, OCA may consider to invites Oceania countries to participate in Asian Games as well. http://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1047291/door-open-for-oceania-athletes-to-compete-at-2022-asian-games
  15. OCA will decide the host for the 2021 Asian Winter Games in Ashgabat. http://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1047290/updates/26848
