  1. You’re right that it won’t be able to host any aquatics competition as venues have already been announced and it’s a bit of wishful thinking on their part. But what Bundaberg can chase is to host an Olympic training camp for one or more of the visiting national squads which can be big bucks hiring out it’s entire pool. Often, a country’s swimming or water polo or artistic swimming squad will arrive in the Host country early to adjust to the local climate conditions, time zone, etc while trainig and ‘tapering’ for the Games. The larger the team the better with all the athletes an

  2. Seems like that will be the cauldron. They're keeping Rio's theme of small cauldrons that don't damage the environment. Good on them. I also like the idea being Mount Fuji with the sun rising being the cauldron. Now this is why I'm excited!

  5. The cauldron is covered like in Beijing 2008. During the parade of Atheltes, it was secretly put into its location which wasn't revealed until the moment Li Ning lit the wick after he completed the lap around the rim of the Bird's Nest.

  6. I don’t see the reason why they have to raise US and Australian flags when they are the upcoming games after Paris. In the closing ceremony the French anthem should be played and France flag should be raised. And for being an exceptional edition and for having with few months for the upcoming Winter Games, a special mention for Beijing 2022 should be presented.

  7. to me it looks like the sun rising from the mountain and then it may open up into a blossom with the flame coming out. side note: i'm tired of projection mapping.

  8. Despite the lighting of the cauldron is the highest point of the ceremony, I like the idea of having small nonpolluting cauldrons. I have always thought it’s such a waste of resources using giant cauldrons when they are merely a symbol. Even more, I think the torch relay should be reconsidered after seeing the growing lack of interest in the latest edition of Olympics and regional games – attending the covid crisis and the low support of these games in Japan, this torch relay has been the coldest ever! The original planned ceremony shows the cauldron lighting pretty alike Lima 2019 style.

  10. Just came across this VERY (now) PC poster advertising the Los Angeles 1932 Games. It deserves some attention. (Only if you look at the last line do you realize how deceptive the Sante Fe Railroad's entire message is.) Still, graphically, it's a beautiful poster.

  11. BUNDABERG REGIONAL COUNCIL SECURES FUNDING FOR NEW AQUATIC CENTRE Bundaberg Regional Council has announced that the Queensland Government has approved its request to allocate the latest round of Works for Queensland funding for the development of the new Bundaberg Regional Aquatic Centre. Mayor Jack Dempsey: “I’ve been advocating for the Bundaberg Region to host training and competition for the 2032 Olympics if Queensland’s bid is successful - this new aquatic centre would be suitable as an Olympics training base.” Credit: Australasian Leisure Management

  15. this would be my guess, given the fact that transport to the games will be by public transport for 99% of the people there (probably only people being driven to the door would be VIP's) there would be room in a carpark / loading dock

  21. A Good Old Aussie Inferiority Complex Never Hurts You gotta laugh. The awarding of a big sporting event to Australia, whether it be an Olympic Games, World Cup, World Championship, Commonwealth Games etc will always bring out the supporters and the whingers, even Aussie ones. In another Olympic blog similar to this one at Skycrapercity, there was this one post, actually from an Aussie, who displayed all the hallmarks of good old Aussie inferiority complex and insecurity about how we’ll look on the world’s stage. And in another good Aussie tradition forgetting in an instant all t

  27. From here IOC Executive Board puts forward Brisbane 2032 for election by IOC Session The International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board (EB) today decided to propose Brisbane 2032 to the upcoming IOC Session as host for the Games of the XXXV Olympiad.

The Executive Board’s decision was based on a report by the Future Host Commission, which has made a detailed analysis of the Brisbane 2032 pr

  28. The baron is back! Yea, I saw some posts about this on Twitter. Mostly from people who don't understand how things work. No, Stefan is right and this is a dumb question that I don't actually think you care about, you're just trying to stir things up. The IOC isn't going to give a rat's ass about this. Nor should they. Keller hasn't been an active swimmer for a decade. USA Swimming probably doesn't care about him anymore. Let me ask you a question.. should the IOC take away Oscar Pistorius's medals away? All he did was murder his girlfriend
