    So it’s official: Munich is going to host 2022. Confirmed sports: athletics (Olympiastadion), golf (venue tbc), gymnastics (in new arena in Olympiapark), cycling (track in Olympiahalle as velodrome was torn down some years ago, rest Olympiapark/city), rowing (1972 regatta course), triathlon (Olympiapark). A seventh sport will be added, maybe swimming, but they’re still negotiating. Dates: 11-22 August

    Finally we got a clear pic from the inside. Pretty much ready I say.

I just found a Special Video at a few days ago(But this video was uploaded at 2017) This is Very Special Show of Bird Thongchai(Superstar artist of Thailand) from Opening Ceremony of 18th University Games of Thailand in 1990(5 Years Before 1995 SEA Games Opening Ceremony) at Ramkhamhaeng University, Bangkok Thailand.

    Bird Thongchai complete performance at 1995 SEA Games opening in Chiang Mai. By the way it seems Five Currents will be in charge of this year SEA Games opening in Philippines.

    I’ve always said that the Swedes have a history of going against the Olympics in their own backyard, which yes, dates back to 1997 with their 2004 summer bid. If anything, the lack of any activity while the Evaluation Team was on the ground there a few months ago, speaks volumes, while in Italy it was pretty much abuzz during their evaluation visit. And while many were citing that the Stockholm bid was going to be “privately-financed”, I guess those numbers really weren’t adding up & made some IOC members uncomfortable. And like I said earlier, if this vote is any indication, is that the IOC is still leery about lukewarm support bids. And that should heed some credence for those who are already chanting “Norway” for the next round. Which let’s remember, the support level for the Oslo 2022 bid was also pretty much the same as the Stockholm 2026 bid.

    This all sounds like Stockholm deliberately and covertly sabotaged their own bid. In fact, most of the swedish people i've read online so far are literally throwing confetti and being glad that they weren't picked to host the games, also saying the whole Bid was made up of farces and lies only their own members believed. Reminder that, on the 2004 race, an extremist group went as far as to bomb the Goteborg and Stockholm stadiums in order to ruin their bid for the 2004 games, citing the same reasons (taxes increase, billions of dollars spending, more tourism, etc. )

    Well, your “giving the middle finger” & “so much for the ‘New Norm’ “ comments certainly give that impression, though. Not to mention your “but as a matter some local politician’s pride & stubbornness”, which can be said of virtually any bid, really.

    I have to concur. The Swedes were so last minute on this, as if they were pushed/forced into this whole thing from all the proponents, & I wonder how much Gunilla had her hands on this, since she wanted this very much. Seems like Sweden just can’t ever get this right. They should’ve held on with 2022, they would’ve won that one hands down. Oh well.
