  2. Not gonna happen. That means the CCP will have acceded to the virus they created. The tone of Beijing 2022 will be that the "virus" of 2020-21 will have been vanquished by February 2022! Xi and his gov't have made their offering to their godless gods!!

  4. IOC Session - Day 1 - Olympic Games 2032 21 July 2021 Likely running sequence for this the very first host election under the IOC rules announced in 2019 While this Vote on Brisbane will be the first Host to voted on under the new rules, it’s very likely to follow a very similar sequence to the low key double-awarding of Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028 at the same IOC Session. It was low key in 2017 because it was a rubber-stamping exercise not a traditional, tense firece rivalry amid a dramatic build-up to the final announcement. Review this 2017 IOC announcement on this official *Olympic Channel youtube video fully and freely available to the public: Credit: *IOC Session - Day 1 - Olympic Games 2024 and 2028 From that IOC Session in 2017, are strong clues as to how the Brisbane 2032 Session is likely to run, along these lines: 21 July 2021 - 138th IOC Session, Tokyo IOC President Thomas Bach invites the following two speakers to officially present the findings of the Future Host Commission - Brisbane 2032 Kristin Kloster Aasen - Chair Future Host Summer Commission Gilbert Felli - Olympic Games Executive Director (possibly) Q&A: IOC President Bach invites questions of the two speakers from IOC Members. IOC President Bach Invites Presentation from Brisbane 2032 Team and advises the Session that following the Brisbane presentation that the Session will immediately proceed to the Vote. The Brisbane 2032 Presentation will likely include video presentation/s and various speakers including the Premier of Queensland, the Mayor of Brisbane Adam Schrinner and the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison via video. Pre-vote Procedures Briefing - IOC President Bach thanks the Brisbane 2032 Team and others who have contributed. President Bach advises the Session that a Vote for Brisbane 2032 is proposed to be by a show of hands and asks if any IOC Member objects to this. If no objections, the IOC President reminds the Session that in accordance with the IOC’s conflict of interest policies that Australian members of the IOC cannot take part in the Vote. If there is a “tie”,the IOC President has the deciding vote. Brisbane is elected with support from 51% of votes indicated by a show of hands. The Vote The IOC President invites by a show of hands by IOC Members to award Brisbane the 2032 Summer Games. The Announcement: IOC President will then either announce. (a) that the vote is clearly passed and Brisbane is elected, or (b) if a majority vote is unclear, he will call for a count of hands, or (c) if it is abundantly clear that a majority did not raise their hands, then IOC President announces that the Vote is not passed and that Brisbane is not elected and returns to the Continuous Dialogue phase where the other 2032 Bidders remain parked. Host Contract Signing: If elected, the Brisbane 2032 team are invited to the stage to sign the 2032 Host Contract.

  8. To compare the Atlanta Games to Tokyo and to even have them in the same article as Berlin 1936 is a huge insult to myself and the people of Atlanta and Georgia. Atlanta has more positives than negatives and was a more successful games than Athens, Beijing, Rio and now Tokyo. They are still the games that have sold the most tickets of all time

  10. Atlanta gets a bad rap when it comes to the Olympics. They weren't perfect but they didn't bankrupt a country like Athens or Rio. Looking back, Atlanta was under scrutiny from the moment it was awarded the Games, with the famed comment about the Olympic flame being lit with Coca Cola. Legacy wise, only the Stone Mountain Tennis Center was a mistake (I imagine if Atlanta could do it over again, temporary courts would have been used). as the climate in Atlanta isn't really desirable for an ATP event. The Georgia Dome served its purpose, sadly it (along with the TWA Dome in St. Louis) were constructed right before sports teams started placing a premium on luxury suites for more revenue. Stadiums like the Georgia Dome were out of date much earlier than intended because of this. Fulton County Stadium and the Omni got nice send offs. Georgia Tech came out with the natatorium being converted to a recreation center along with the Alexander Memorial Coliseum receiving a much needed renovation. Morehouse College benefited from the newly constructed Forbes Arena. Then there's the Georgia International Horse Park. Atlanta for the most part avoided the white elephants that plagued future hosts (Athens, Beijing, Sochi, Pyeongchang, Rio, and Tokyo). I remember Cobb County was supposed to host some events but they were moved due to some controversial legislation. Anybody remember what events were set for Cobb County and where along with what the controversial law was?

  11. Uhm. SLC got the Olympics in 1995, so there goes your argument. Also, Atlanta may or may not have been a mess, but compared to the continuous disaster (not all, but partly due to its own doing) that is Tokyo 2020-1, it was a walk in the park.
