    FYI For US some random tickets for water polo, handball, hockey, weightlifting, and wrestling are now available at Cosport. I got a hockey and sailing ticket from the drop.

    Brisbane 2032

    Interesting. Seems like that estimate of just over 5 billion is rather low. If I'm reading correctly, Brisbane is planning on two new arenas for gymnastics and basketball plus a new stadium? Seems like costs could get out of hand very quickly. Also not sure what arena would serve as an aquatics center like Rod Laver did for the world championships unless they plan on a temporary one like Tokyo is doing and Rio did but left it to rot. It would also make more sense to use some of the more problematic venues (rowing and slalom canoeing) from the Sydney Olympics. I am also assuming that the much needed transportation upgrades aren't included and I've seen some reports that say without those planned upgrades the bid doesn't go forward. Even with the changes to the bidding process, it still seems like a big undertaking.

    Not sure if this has been posted in another thread, but has the feasibility study been made public? Any preliminary venue plans?

    Your Favo(u)rite Olympic Tv Commercials

    Lifelong Snicker fan here. Always enjoy myself some Snickers! So did American skiier Karl Anderson en route to Sarajevo after Lake Placid back in 1984 to offset his "hunger feeling" before going downhill when he pitched for it--and "substantial" Snickers was the official snack food of the 1984 Winter Olympics! Alas, he didn't qualify for Sarajevo after Innsbruck and Lake Placid. Maybe he did this after he retired before 1984: When Sydney, New South Wales, Australia was hosting the 2000 Summer Olympics, Westpac Bank put out a massive promotion towards endorsing and supporting its homegrown athletes it sponsors since 1997 and even beyond. But nothing like almost 20 years ago. Here in this humorous and then-innovative piece, the mothers and sisters of Australian Olympians swimmer Susie O'Neill, marathoner Kylie Risk, gymnast Lisa Skinner, hurdler Kyle Vander Kuyp, weightlifter Damian Brown, and javelin thrower Adrian Hatcher all try in vain at their famous world class family members' sports with great hilarity, all wondering aloud "I don't know how s/he does it". Thus reminding us all their athletes' elite skills:

    It could do with something above it, but it’s actually pretty nice for a typo-logo. At least there’s some design to it *glares at Sochi*.
  15. From what I have found is most of these are only available on the Japanese site.

    I thought we were done with the typography thing after Sochi. *sighs* What a wasted oportunity. Anyway.

    Ukraine Sets focus On Future Olympic Games Bid

    As long as the unofficial war goes on, it’s obviously not happening. Overall, Kyiv certainly would have more potential than Budapest, not the least given Ukraine’s size.

    Ok. Now it's confirmed that it's the actual logo. I red it's based on the current venues and a future vision of the city of Santiago. https://www.latercera.com/el-deportivo/noticia/santiago-2023-presenta-su-colorido-logo/743228/ (in Spanish)

    Ukraine Sets focus On Future Olympic Games Bid

    Pripyat could be the single most awesome site for an Olympic Village EVER. Existing infrastructure and condos (embracing Agenda 2020 + the New Norm), already well protected by the Ukrainian military (reducing the price tag for games security) and with all that radiation around the Russians won't even need to dope (provided they are allowed to enter the country, that is, of course). Now, honestly, this is certainly not gonna happen for 2032. A Summer Youth Olympics in Kiyev might work out at some point, though.

    Lima 2019

    There has been no official announcement from ESPN, but I have been checking out the schedules for all of their channels on their website and I found the following Pan American Games telecast times there. ESPN2 will have coverage on the first weekend, but most of the coverage will air on ESPNU, including the opening and closing ceremonies. ESPN Deportes will once again air Spanish-language coverage throughout the games. (BTW: TV Record has the Brazilian broadcast rights and I have not been able to locate any information of coverage in Canada.) All Time ET and subject, of course, to change: ESPN2 Sat. 7/27 - 10 AM - 1 PM and 9:30 PM - 11:30 PM Sun. 7/28 - 1 PM - 3 PM ESPNU Wed. 7/24 - 10 AM - 4:30 PM Thurs. 7/25 - 10 AM - 4:30 PM Fri. 7/26 - 10:30 AM - 3:00 PM and 8 PM - 11:30 PM (Opening Ceremony) Sat. 7/27 - 1 PM - 3:30 PM and 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM Sun. 7/28 - 10 AM - 1 PM and 4 PM - 12:30 AM Mon. 7/29 - 9:30 AM - 10 PM Tues. 7/30 - 11 AM - 10 PM Wed. 7/31 - 5:30 PM - 12:30 AM Thurs. 8/1 - 11 AM - 8:30 PM Fri. 8/2 - 11 AM - 12:30 AM Sat. 8/3 - 11 AM - 12:30 AM Sun. 8/4 - 11 AM - 1 AM Mon. 8/5 - 11 AM - 11 PM Tues. 8/6 - 11 AM - 12:30 AM Wed. 8/7 - 9 AM - 11:30 PM Thurs. 8/8 - 10 AM - 12 AM Fri. 8/9 - 10 AM - 12:30 AM Sat. 8/10 - 10 AM - 1 AM Sun. 8/11 - 10 AM - 4 PM and 8 PM - 12 AM (Closing Ceremony) ESPN Deportes Wed. 7/24 - 10 AM - 4:40 PM Thurs. 7/25 - 10 AM - 4:40 PM Fri. 7/26 - 9:00 AM - 6:30 PM and 12 AM -3:30 AM (Opening Ceremony on tape delay) Sat. 7/27 - 9:30 AM - 5 PM and 10:00 PM - 12:00 AM Sun. 7/28 - 10 AM - 2:45 PM and 5 PM - 7 PM Mon. 7/29 - 9:30 AM - 11:30 PM Tues. 7/30 - 11 AM - 7:50 PM Wed. 7/31 - 11 AM - 9:50 PM Thurs. 8/1 - 11 AM - 12:30 AM Fri. 8/2 - 10 AM - 12:30 AM Sat. 8/3 - 11 AM - 12:15 PM and 10 PM - 12:30 AM Sun. 8/4 - 10 AM - 1 AM Mon. 8/5 - 11 AM - 3 PM and 5 PM - 12:30 AM Tues. 8/6 - 11 AM - 7:50 PM Wed. 8/7 - 9 AM - 9:50 PM Thurs. 8/8 - 10 AM - 12:30 AM Fri. 8/9 - 10 AM - 12:30 AM Sat. 8/10 - 10 AM - 4:30 PM and 10 PM - 11:30 PM Sun. 8/11 - 10 AM - 4 PM and 8 PM - 12 AM (Closing Ceremony)

    Ukraine Sets focus On Future Olympic Games Bid

    Idk about you but looking at Ukraine right now I can see that if they can find the right stepping stone like YOG or European Games they can be a stronger candidate than some 2032 candidates like India and Indonesia

    So looks like this Zelenskiy is still doing stand-up comedy! At least Bubka is trying to keep his big lofty idea more down to earth lol.

    Ceremonies on UTube, Part 3

    OK, this is the full entire version of the 2019 Pacific Games Opening Ceremony in Apia, (Western) Samoa using the official feed. Yet it's cut into two parts for some bizarre reason. What took it so long after this? The Rev. Faulalo Leti, President of the Samoan Methodist Church, really had a long speech by Games standards along with a prayer and a hymn choir. Samoa's PM Va'aletoa Sualauvi II makes a 22-minute long speech while opening these Games, which is very long by any type of Games standards. But like with the Port Moresby one, we certainly see various teams across the Pacific displaying their Haka renditions and showcasing their diversities, all living up to the motto "One In Spirit" in several ways. Worth noting here that on May 15, 2017 the Tongan Prime Minister announced that Tonga, which never hosted these Pacific Games, would withdraw from hosting the 2019 Pacific Games amid concerns the country facing economic difficulties when staging the event. A Tongan Cabinet spokesman, speaking to Kaniva News, noted that Prime Minister Akilisi Pōhiva decided to save the nation from a "costly mistake" when the planned Chinese and Japanese investment and development in their planned and upgraded venues and facilities never arrived. Continues on in the second video until 43:49 starting with the torch inside the stadium and then the broadcast stream heads to the studio co-anchors and the competition (Cook Islands-Fiji women's basketball and Fiji-Tahiti men's soccer): No full footage of the 2019 NatWest International Island Games Opening Ceremony that happened nearly two months ago yet. So we'll have to settle with individual team delegations marching towards inside Gibraltar's Europa Point Stadium at least for now. Like Team Isle of Wight here:
  28. Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy Tuesday advised government officials to prepare a bid to host an upcoming Olympic Games. Zelenskiy, a former comedian who was elected in April to lead Ukraine, hopes to develop necessary sport infrastructure that could be used to stage an Olympics. “We should give a task to our guys, who are looking […] The post Ukraine Sets focus On Future Olympic Games Bid appeared first on GamesBids.com.
