    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.

    Really liking the dark mode version of the logo on the website, will be very interesting to see what path they will take when it comes to the look. Definitely a winner with producing a quality Worldmark as well which should work well with the branding. Reasonably pleased with this one.

    Options: build a convertible stadium (like Stade de France) build a stadium with mostly temporary seating (like Budapest's new stadium for the 2023 World Athletics Championships) build an oval stadium that is converted to a rectangle after the event (like City of Manchester Stadium after the 2002 Commonwealth Games) build a semi-oval stadium with a temporary platform or excavation for athletics (like Hampden Park for the 2014 Commonwealth Games) I think the financing and club cooperation are bigger obstacles than the technical issues. BVB, Borussia M, Schalke, Fortuna and Bayer Leverkusen all have existing stadiums that suit their needs better than a Frankenstein hybrid stadium.

    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.

    Love it, and i love the fact that there is just one Logo for both Games. I always wondered why there is a need for different ones. Love the Gold/Black/white Art-Deco look and feel of the whole design. Well done Paris :)

    D’oh! When i glanced at it this morning, all my brain really took in was the flame in the medal and the lips. Now I’ve looked at it again, I’ve finally made the mental perspective flip and i can’t believe i didn’t take in the hair, to create Marianne’s face! That changes everything. I like it a lot better now. And interesting... so feminine. And as Rob said, so French, but not overtly so. Such a clever and unusual way to brand the games. What’s Ruff’s Abrahamson’s take on this? Whenever a new logo comes out, i can’t help wondering how far it would go in a GBids logo comp. Speaking of which @yoshi...

    Marianne is a great symbol for us, let’s share her with the world

    Yoshi, the 2 organizations are slowly merging. What used to be the USOC is now called the USOPC. How far behind can other countries be?

    Considering how totally underwhelming the last 4 of the last 5 Games have been, this is like a breath of fresh air. I mean, we don't want to drown in a crush of OVER-creativity.

    Looks like a cosmetic brand to me, definitely doesnt scream ''Olympics''. When I first glanced at it, I thought the first one would be a woman, and the second one a man, representing all humanity....my partner looked at it and said, it is sexist, with a sexy double entre feel (french kiss etc.)...

    Very clever - like the melange of the medal - the flame & The Marianne. Not keen in the font though! Still one the best logos in many a year!

    My first thought is an unapologetically feminine looking logo is very welcome. The way the lips appeared on the animation was a nice, unexpected surprise. And the whole thing is very French. Feels slightly flat as a design though. Not sure why, maybe it's the colours or lack of?

    Roger, just consider the source. Enuff said. It’s the same one who kept saying that the IOC should just call up a certain central Asian country to “save” the IOC’s butt for 2026. And the same one who suggests a Summer Olympics in “January”.

    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.

    To be fair, London’s was a bit the same. Took me a while to see beyond the shapes to make out Lisa Simpson

    There was a credible push from the Victorian state government for a Melbourne bid for 2028/2032 however the AOC flat out said no (there is a lot of back story to the AOC basically hating Melbourne). Thus the Melburnians know until Coates is ousted (and they tried to do that a couple of years back) there is no point.
