  4. INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE The President To: the Members of the Gamesbid Olympic Family For immediate release London, 9 February 2015 Re: Question-and-Answer Session As promised, the IOC is putting up a "Ask the Applicant Cities" thread to answer any questions you, IOC Executive Members or IOC Members, may have regarding each city's bid. Only rule regarding the discussion: Keep it polite and courteous. Don't make accusations you can't back up and please argue on the substance of the proposed bid. That way, we all will end up learning from the answers. To the Applicant Cities: Answer truthfully and creatively. NOTE: Due to the recent issues regarding the Applicant Files posted by Paris and Toronto, these cities will (for now) not be included. Once they have posted their revised Applicant Files to the IOC's approval, they will be given an opportunity to participate as well. The Applicant Files (in alphabetical order) Cape Town (South Africa) Copenhagen/Malmo (Denmark/Sweden) Melbourne (Australia) New York City (United States) Sapporo (Japan)
  5. I understand Rule #33 of the Olympic Charter, concerning single city or country hosting of the Olympic games. Does anyone know where I can find the origin of the rule which PREVENTED join bids from Olympic cities/countries? I saw this provision was added to the Olympic charter in 1921, but I cannot find related literature about why the rule for a single city hosting model was instituted in the first place. Can anyone point me in the right direction on this, or perhaps offer guidance as to where I might find information as it relates to the origins of this rule? Again, I understand it has now been changed, but am needing to understand its origins. Thank you.
  6. How does the IOC Progress? Is Bach the Right Person to move the IOC Forward? Is Bach too Political? Does Bach have enough Control or too much Control? Should Bach separate the IOC from Politics? These are Important Questions. Discuss it all here.

  11. Brasov is currently Bidding for the 2020 Winter Youth Olympics. (I noticed no thread for Brasov, and as they are an Official Bidder like Lausanne, they should have a thread). Also for the City of Brasov, a planned Brand New Stadium is in plan for 23,000 Seats (Possible Opening and Closing Ceremonies Venue if Brasov gets the hosting rights). http://stadiumdb.com/designs/rou/stadionul_municipal_brasov (Source: StadiumDB.com).

  13. is this real !!! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Tokyo mayor claims Japan PM lied about Fukushima Inose publicly denounced the Prime Minister’s claim after telling reporters from Fuji TV that the water leak was “not necessarily under control”. World Bulletin / News Desk The Mayor of Tokyo, Naoki Inose, has indicated that the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe lied to the International Olympic Committee when he reassured them that contaminated water leaking from the Fukushima Nuclear Plant were “under control.” Inose publicly denounced the Japanese Prime Minister’s claim after telling reporters from Fuji TV that the water leak was “not necessarily under control” on Friday. Shinzo Abe flew directly from the G20 Summit in Russia to the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires where he declared water outside the immediate area safe from radiation, resulting in Tokyo defeating its rivals Istanbul and Madrid to host the 2020 Olympic games. However, Tokyo Mayor Inose later said, “The government must acknowledge this as a national problem so that we can head toward a real solution.” After conducting an internal investigation, the operator of the Fukushima nuclear plant TEPCO found that the water-leak may have been caused by five loose bolts on an iron plate.
