  1. I love the concept, but I do not like the execution. Can the bold font (L, 2 and 8) at least be the same font since the As change? It seems like the L and the 8 are the same or similar, but the 2 is kind of a sports jersey kind of font. Is this the offical logo or some kind of promo to keep people excited since it's so far away--I hope? I'm not a fan of the A that's currently their icon on social media (some kind of Old English, brush font). Reminds me of the Oakland As.

  2. Actually, very innovating. It was about time we had a groundbreaking logo which would fit the current digital era, and I like how the way the "A" changes talks so much about LA's identity and culture without going over the top. I agree they could had used a better font for the rest of the letters, though. It was just very weird that they released it so early. It should had happened in 2021, but i guess they now have plenty of time to get to work in a brand which also matches perfectly with this and with the digital age. I hope there are nods to the Festive Federalism brand of LA'84.

  3. Wow, how so special that would have been for you to be there in the Stadium that night! My elderly mother and I were just outside the Stadium Australia on little folding stools in the crowded Olympic Park Live Site. It was a great typical Aussie communal party atmosphere there and we all cheered big time when Juan Antonio proclaimed his Games verdict. Treasured memories. I was so lucky as well to be in the Stadium for the first OC Dress Rehearsal then in the actual OC on 15/9/2000. I hope of course that Queensland can bring the Games down under for the third time in 2032.

  4. Was nice to be in the stadium to hear it....Sydney 2000 was the highlight of my life, I carried the flame into Byron Bay, witnessed the opening and closing and every athletic session, and all up I saw 70 gold medals being won! My best fiend from Uni even hosted the 1 hour pre opening activities in the stadium. And when I was a little kid a few miles from the stadium I used to stage my own Olympic Games in the backyard1

  5. The fact China has been punishing Australia in the last months due to the later getting tired of their growing aggressive diplomacy by suspending imports from Australian products and forbidding their tourists to visit Australia (which in turn has been causing economic damage to the country) has only added more fuel to the fire. While I admire Australia for taking a stand against their ever growing influence in Oceania, its sad that still many countries prefer to remain silent and haven't grown a pair yet to make actual changing choices. The american politicians, for example, talk too much abou

  6. South African social segregation also affected black athletes and fans. Similarly Russia has been punished for state-sponsored doping, and not its anti-gay legislation or sending weapons and "little green men" into Ukraine. The problem with punishing countries for human rights violations and political malfeasance is that every country violates human rights to some degree or other. Capital punishment is legal in the USA and the country has its own problems with mass imprisonment and racism. So should the USOC be banned from the Olympics? Should Japan be banned from the Olympics for its ref

  7. At Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum when the cauldron has been relit over the years, has anyone actually stood under the archway and directly ignited the pathway to the cauldron? Of course not.

  8. I don't post here often but I've skimmed through this thread and just have to say... All of you Anti-Trumpers are idiots and really don't understand him at all if you think, for one hot second, that he's going to go down the "boycott the Beijing 2022 Olympics" road during a second term. His whole mantra is MAGA. It's about America WINNING. He's going to want our athletes going into Beijing and kicking some Chinese ass and beating them in the medal count. Furthermore, while 2028 is after he is out of office, you can bet your bottom dollar that he will absolutely be present and ready during

  11. If the Farnham comments were on TV just before the ceremony, I missed it as I was at the stadium hyperventillating with excitement! I did notice that when Olivia walks down the steps in Dare To Dream, Farnham holds her hand and watches her feet so intensely, I suspected there may have been an incident in her heels!

  13. The MTV logo was done much, much better....if anything the LA28 looks old fashioned and out of date by comparison, rather than cutting edge ....

  14. The changing A is totally derivative of the MTV logo....and anyone who has been alive the last 30 years would have seen it somewhere. I think MTV did it better though. Remember Tokyo changed its logo because it was similar to a Belgium Theater troupe- not many of us had seen that!

  15. Yeah, the look of the games was released last May, but I don't blame anyone for not noticing due to the current status of the Pandemic. Anyway. Beijing Winter Olympics color system and core graphics release dynamic graphics for the first time in Olympic history https://www.tellerreport.com/sports/2020-05-08-beijing-winter-olympics-color-system-and-core-graphics-release-dynamic-graphics-for-the-first-time-in-olympic-history.rJDKIIzc8.html So, yeah, much like the LA'28 logo, they're going for the Dynamic graphics. Which means we're going to have a Look of the Games in moti

  17. Did a 180°—The more I see the animations and digest the concept the more I’m liking/loving it. It was just threw me for a bit of a loop. It’s quirky but ultimately modern and engaging. As an Angeleno myself, it’s cool to see the diversity that we see all around us reflected in this dynamic logo.

  22. It was a sincere joke around here, but hindsight being 20/20.......in 2020, Almaty is unquestionably the safer choice of the two. China was obviously perceived to be the safer bet with a treasure trove of cash. I also was always a bigger fan of the Almaty bid frankly speaking. While no darling angels, their bid was compact and had those "mountain" things that are pretty critical to hosting Olympic events (that and an actual winter sports culture). It was a vintage "project 2020" bid that checked off a lot of boxes. Instead we give it to the country that is literally running concentration

  23. Wow. Sounds exciting, Petrus. For your sake, I hope it will happen. All the best. If you can, you should go to Kyoto and Nara. BTW, there is a Le Petit Prince Museum (tres japonnaise ) in Hakone (which, if ever I go back to Japan in the future, I would like to visit).

  24. Almaty looked like the right choice all along to me.......but I guess international organizations and the IOC have a very difficult time passing up $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Additionally; it may be a display of privileged and power that we are forced to wedge winter sports at this level into places that it is not a tradition or norm.

  25. What’s that? Suicide for fear of death? Never in a million years would athletes en masse go for that idea.
