    Well, Paris 2024's social media accounts are all white now. And the website is unusable for now. Probably in anticipation for the new logo to be revealed.

    TOKYO 2020 Venue Plan

    Tokyo 2020 marathon course (Tokyo 2020) © Copyright Tokyo 2020 race walking courses (Tokyo 2020) © Copyright The marathon course will take in both modern and traditional districts of the city, starting and finishing at the Olympic Stadium and passing symbolic Tokyo landmarks along the way. These will include the Kaminarimon ("Thunder Gate") in Asakusa, guarded by the deities of wind and thunder; the Imperial Palace, the primary residence of the Emperor of Japan; Ginza's upmarket Chuo Street; the Zojoji temple, with the landmark Tokyo Tower as a backdrop; and Nihombashi bridge, the historic centre of the Japanese capital. The climax of the Tokyo 2020 marathon race will see the athletes running the final stretch leading to the Olympic Stadium uphill. Below, watch a time lapse tour of the marathon course. Marathon running in Japan has a long history and proud tradition. The Japanese have truly embraced distance running, and the Tokyo Marathon, one of the world's top six city marathons, now regularly attracts huge crowds of supporters. This year's event drew 300,000 applicants, with nearly 36,000 runners participating and more than one million people cheering on the streets. Tokyo 2020 for the IAAF https://www.iaaf.org/news/news/tokyo-2020-marathon-and-race-walk-courses-ann Looks like the marathon and race walking events are being moved to Sapporo because of the heat. Sapporo could now become the first city to host events (or at least medal events) for both the Summer and Winter Olympics https://www.olympic.org/news/international-olympic-committee-announces-plans-to-move-olympic-marathon-and-race-walking-to-sapporo

    Ceremonies on UTube, Part 3

    The opening segment of the Closing Ceremony of Rio 2016 Olympics. An adaptated version of the traditional Brazilian song "Baiana" I post this video just to recommend you this YouTube channel - Cusome TV - which is uploading many ceremonies only with the "Artistic segment" and some short segment videos.

    Your Favo(u)rite Olympic Tv Commercials

    I do remember that 7 Sydney 2000 promo being on the beginning of the Sydney 2000 Olympic DVDs like the 2-disc Opening Ceremony one from Warner Home Vision Australia. The Great One appears again for his endorsement of Canon's groundbreaking at the time Canon G70 photo camera back in 1985, showcasing his skills that rightfully called him the Great One and Canadian royalty. Canon was the official camera brand of the NHL at the time. Gretzky was right at the height of his powers back then happily winning Stanley Cups for the Edmonton Oilers back in the 1980s and deservedly was one of the top male athlete of that very decade. The 1980s were very, very good to Edmonton sports with not just Gretzky and the Oilers (packed with All-Stars and legends) but also the CFL's Edmonton Eskimos with coach Hugh Campbell and his QB Warren Moon winning multiple Grey Cups just before them...until that seismic August 1988 trade to Los Angeles when he was still in his scary prime brought all that winning to a screeching halt. There's actually another version of this commercial from the same shoot I hope to bring very soon from the same period with Gretzky that was also shown across Canada and the USA. Also notice not seeing the names above the numbers on his teammates' backs, which should detect to you they're not his actual Oilers teammates during filming His opponents may sport jerseys styled like the New Jersey Devils, a team he once infamously blasted the year before following a blowout game calling it "a Mickey Mouse organization" and got torched for it, but really have a fictional circular crest with a white A on it. Now here's a more recent hockey hero in Norwegian star Mats Zuccarello (with the added actual surname Aasen)--the Zuccarello is from his mother's Italian heritage--with him practicing his shooting inside all by himself. Then with the New York Rangers during filming and airing (now with the Minnesota Wild on a 5-year $30 million contract starting this season). In this Unibets commercial, Zuccarello says translated "You must bet (that is in this Norwegian context, "bet" means dedicating or committing yourself) to win. It means very tough work every day. But it's worth it, because the joy of winning is the biggest there is," bridging both working on your sport and gambling. This stands out because active players really can't endorse vices for North American-based companies and context; we're still just shedding the stigma of it (complicated story and history owing to our largely Protestant heritage) with technology playing an important role. Gambling and booking on sports are normal and accepted across Europe with huge revenue generated annually. And of course it has the age restriction and gambling help noted:

    Ceremonies on UTube, Part 3

    I've been looking for something like this for a long time: An hour long commemorative tape by Buffalo's Channel 4 of highlights of the 1993 World University Games in Buffalo. There are some 15 minutes of terrific highlights of the Opening Ceremony at Rich Stadium on this as well as some footage of the Closing Ceremony as well. Enjoy! I also found the Opening Ceremony of the 2017 Islamic Solidarity Games in Baku, Azerbaijan.

    Winter Olympics Recordings Collection

    I do. I saw your post in another thread about old Olympic recordings that I keep meaning to reply back to. I saw the link to your site. Assuming the e-mail address is still good there, I'll send you a message and hopefully we can work something out

    Do you have Atlanta, Sydney, Salt Lake, Athens, Torino, Beijing, Vancouver if you do let's talk
  15. Does anyone have the Nagano opening ceremony? I've been searching for that for a while. I have quite an extensive collection; opening ceremonies from 1960 onwards, 40-ish hours of live TV coverage for Rome '60, over 60 hours of TV coverage for Grenoble '68, etc.

    New NOC Chair To Focus On Indonesia 2032 Olympic Bid

    Good luck with that one. Jakarta will be under the sea before it ever hosts the Olympics.

    2030 Olympic Winter Games Bids

    and of course in 1998, SLC almost went out in R1 and had to win a run off with Aosta After that, the assistance of a few brown envelopes aided the closeness with Nagano They learnt their lesson in 2002 ... bigger brown envelopes from the start

    2030 Olympic Winter Games Bids

    For Lillehammer to add those additional sports would be minimal ... Kanthaugen hosted freestyle skiing and half-pipe, and Hafjell the slopestyle in 2016, the curling already has a purpose built arena and there is likely to be enough capacity to host additional women's hockey games A games encompassing the true spirit of the games vs a games forever tainted by bribery ... clearly an easy call

    Little bit old news of a few weeks ago, Date:Sep. 27, 2019 News source:The Japan Times Link to this article:https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2019/09/27/national/tokyo-2020-organizers-reveal-6900-tickets-bought-fake-ids/#.XZ_631X7TIU

    Tokyo Olympic Tickets thread

    I've had a look - not a great deal to get excited about. I find it hard to believe the only football tickets available are to the semifinals and are $500 a pop. So every other single match all across Japan are sold out? That'll be a first...
  23. Indeed, I was there last year. A lovely country, but very poor these days. Chernobyl clean up still consumes 10 percent of GDP and Russia has only recently invaded and annexed much of the country..

    Paris 2024

    So the applicants for the emblem were given to Paris 2024 in November last year. And I just read on Wikipedia that the official logo will be revealed on 21st October. If this is true, I'm looking forward to it.
