    makes sense at the moment to sit and see what happens. There was a radio interview this morning with a sports reporter and the thinking was as follows: we don't know whats happening with Tokyo. It's possible Tokyo will not go ahead. if this is the case, Tokyo has flushed big money down the toilet. they will want some return for this money. therefore, do we push everything back 4 years? (ie Tokyo 2024, Paris 2028 and LA 2032) or do they award Tokyo 2032 as a compensation? The bid is not dead - as much as some on the more extreme right would like it to be - it's just paused, and it is the right thing to do at the moment.

    I’d just like to point out that Bob Katter is one of our idiot politicians. He’s from rural Queensland (the state I live in) and he’s a homophobic idiot who is essentially just a shock jock who goes for headlines. He’s not a politician anyone in this country with a brain takes seriously.

    Lithuania won the voting (jury & televote, mine included) in the German replacement programme last night. Small consolation.

    That is exactly what I was going to guess. I can’t think of many more people who would need a booklet like this. Plus, it seems to nice to have been distributed to the general public.

    Thankfully those games aren’t in 2025, because that’s when Birmingham (AL) will host the World Fire and Police Games...

    Australia is a safe pick in these times..and sadly epidemiologists are predicting global pandemics more regularly in the future... Australia is spending (ie wasting) $100 billion plus on new submarines, and $100 billion plus on new strike fighters at the moment. So I never wont to here that we cant afford 3-5 billion for the Olympics!

    oh and just to add onto the above. if all levels of government are really are on board i would think Brisbane would almost be dead certs to get this now, given how we have managed covid and it looks like we are though the worst of it with minimal deaths and infection rates into the single digits a day now, where as places like India and indonesia are still struggling to contain the virus

    Fully Agree. A big event the whole community can build towards and get around might just be what the economy needs. 2032 in Brisbane would be something that we could look forward to, and be used to do some big projects that would make brisbane a better place to live. My only concern is that i can see politicians being scared of even talking about hosting the games with the current economic situation of high unemployment given i can see people thinking "why are we spending billions to host the olympics when so many people are out of work" not thinking about the jobs that would come out of an olypic games

    No, the IOC has stated that they are no longer bound by that 7 year-lead time rule. They've said that they can pick/announce a host city any time if the conditions are right. I suppose if Sapporo and Salt Lake are the only serious contenders for both 2030 and 2034; they can lock them in early or much later than the normal 7 years.

    Australia is due to host the 2030 Pan Pacific Championships due to the rotation system between the main four nations. This would be fitting to be held in Brisbane as a lead up to the 2032 Olympics.

    I think an excessive use of exclamation marks is a better sign of hysteria than making decisions based on scientific advice.
