    2030 Olympic Winter Games Bids

    I wonder if Thomas Bach is in talks with the Mayor of Munich in getting a bid from Munich Germany to host the 2030 Winter Games as a nice legacy from his years of being the IOC President to Germany, The 2032 Summer Games is very likely to go to Asia either Shanghai China or Jakarta Indonesia. With Milan Italy having the 2026 Winter Games could bod well for a Munich Germany 2030 bid Things could cool down and could go down well if they have venues in Garmish-Partenkirchen and in Innsbruck Austria if they want to save the cost in building venues and let's hope in a few years time the anti Olympic movement cools down in Europe let's hope for a great outcome from the Tokyo Japan 2020 Summer Games. Milan - Cortina Italy 2026 Munich Germany - Innsbruck 2030

    Shanghai 2032

    That is why I said they need to get the Commonwealth Games and host it put on a great games before they even bid for the Olympic Games Kenya is the most stable country apart from South Africa able to host the Olympic Games in Africa so 2040 at the earliest. Shanghai should built the Olympic Park along the river North East transform some of the industrial area into the Olympic Park that industrial island near the Shanghai International Fashion Center would be a great place and on the other side of the river would be a great place for the games village if they build a 100,000 seat Stadium for the games with downsize to 90,000 after the games.
  3. The Australian economy is not in a great shape right now and there is allot of talk it will enter a long rescission in the next year of two the public might turn against the bid from Brisbane if that happens. There is no need for a big oval stadium in Brisbane the Gabba hardly sells out for Cricket and AFL, John Coates rule will come to a end soon and what is interesting is Thomas Bach wants flexibility for the dates for the games so the 2032 Summer Games could be the last games with date restrictions under the NBC deal. Melbourne right now is the best city for the games in Australia right now with the date restrictions likely to go from the 2036 Summer Games it could open up a January Olympic Games and February Paralympics Games, The Cricket could be held at Marvel Stadium for that summer and the Australian Open could go to another city for that year. If the 2032 Summer Games go to Asia the 2036 games will likely not be held in the Asia Pacific region so the Australian Games may not happen for a while yet.

    2020, a new decade of nostalgia for the IOC

    Economically Australia's economy isn't doing that great right now and their is big talks about Australia going to enter a recession in the next year or two which could last for years so their might not be public support for a Olympic Bid no matter how much John Coates wants a games for Brisbane, I don't see a Australian games for a while yet Melbourne would be the best city right now but that will not happen while John Coates is still calling the shots in Australia.

    Vladimir Putin term will be up in 2024 he will be 72 years old so Russia could be a great place for the 2036 Summer Games they could try with Saint Peterborough in 2032 then go with Moscow in 2036 Russia is having a agriculture boom right now too and paying off their debts now they will have a very healthy economy very soon. Shanghai China 2032 - Moscow Russia 2036 China is expected to have the world's largest economy by 2030 and become a develop country by 2028 so Shanghai China can make a great statement to the world where they will reach the top Beijing 2008 and 2022 is China welcoming the world and Shanghai 2032 will establish China as the world new superpower also marks the 100th anniversary of the Chinese first games they took part in.
  6. Annecy should be a great place for the ceremonies venue I loved their plan building a temporary Olympic Stand overlooking the lake and mountains for the ceremonies have the Opening Ceremony begin at Day light and watch the sunset by the Olympic Flag is raised, It will like it will be like the Singapore 2010 and Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games ceremonies venues, Albertville can host the Speed Skating and the Curling events with Grenoble or Lyons can host the ICE Hockey and Short track and figure skating events. The Games village should be in Albertville and the ceremonies venue for the 1992 Games could be the medal plaza.
  7. For the Winter Games it would be the best to award the games 7 years out unless if we have another Sochi 2014 case but Sochi Russia 2014 is a once in a lifetime event type games where they built every single thing for the games, Summer Games I agree with awarding the games 9 years out from the games, So both the 2030 Winter Games and the 2032 Summer Games will be picked at the same IOC session in 2023 so 1 day for the Winter Olympic host city election then the next day for the Summer Olympic host city election. From the Press conference the IOC President said he is open to the flexibility for the dates for the Games so the 2032 Summer Games could be the last games with dates restrictions it happens to be the dry season for Jakarta is held in from July to September so Jakarta Indonesia will not have any issues with the dates for the games.

    Paris 2024 Ceremonies

    This could be the first ceremony since Barcelona for the Summer games to be held in day light for some off it the Sunset time on July 26 is at 9:38pm in Paris so if the ceremony begins at 9pm there will be a hour of sunlight and dusk with a 4 hour ceremony so they could bring a classic ceremony like Barcelona, Like Barcelona they could start the closing ceremony later with all the Athletes seated for the closing ceremony at 10Pm Starting time for it to be held fully in the dark have a 2 1/2 hour ceremony.

    2020, a new decade of nostalgia for the IOC

    If Jakarta Indonesia is not Asia strongest New Frontier then that would mean Bangkok Thailand is the strongest if they get the 2026 Summer Youth Olympic Games they could use those games as a test event for the 2036 Summer Games bid. Bangkok is one of the most visited cities in the world, Thailand is as develop as China and Brazil recent Olympic host countries high developing industrialise country. Bangkok got great sporting history in hosting big sporting events. In the 2030s we could have New Frontiers for the Summer Games Budapest Hungary 2032 - Bangkok Thailand 2036 Budapest Hungary with Viktor Orban could make it the strongest backing European Bid for 2032 to leave the battle of Asia for the 2036 Summer Games, Hungary got a great economy they could put on a compact games the only top ten Olympic summer power yet to host the Summer Games. The IOC could play it safe for the Winter Games for a little longer with having Salt Lake City USA 2030 - Sapporo Japan 2034, They could go back to Munich Germany or Barcelona Spain for the 2038 Games and Montreal Canada for the 2042 games.

    BidWeek: No Winter Games In Sweden. Ever?

    The only way I can see full support from Sweden is with a Sweden - Christian Democrats Coalition government let's hope they make a come back in 2034 once the dust is down come back with the 2022 compact Bid plan, I really think the Italy 2026 regionalism will be a one off event with a compact Salt Lake City 2030 plan and Sapporo Japan and Almaty Kazakhstan will have a compact bid. With the direction of Sweden I think it will be possible with the Sweden - Christian Democrats coalition government supporting the bid for 2034 without having the Sliding events in Latvia. 2033-2034 would also be the Diamond Jubilee year for the Swedish King would be a great year like London 2012 with the Diamond Jubilee for Queen Elizabeth 2 and the Olympic Games.

    India Bids To Host 2023 IOC Session In Mumbai

    Who knows the 2021 IOC Session could give the 2030 Winter Games and the 2023 IOC Session could give the 2032 Summer Games so if that happens also if Mumbai host that will mean no 2032 Indian bid.

    Should Turkey bid again?

    The problem with Turkey is they pick the wrong cities to make a bid for the games the right city for Turkey for the Summer Games is Izmir and for the Winter Games Bursa until they start bidding with those cities they have got no chance at all to host the Olympic Games, If Jakarta Indonesia wins the bid for the 2032 Summer Games it will be a long time before any other Islamic country host the games.
  13. They might do what BC Place in Vancouver did the last ever events at the old BC Place Stadium were the Vancouver 2010 ceremonies before changing it all up after the 2010 Winter Games.
  14. I hope they dump that plan and have all 4 ceremonies at San Siro Stadium they can have another 235,000 more ticket sales for the ceremonies if they have it all at San Siro Stadium.

    2020, a new decade of nostalgia for the IOC

    2030 Salt Lake City USA or Sapporo Japan 2032 Shanghai China for visiting old friends. After China welcomed the World in the summer and winter games with Beijing 2008 and 2022 China will be a established country for the IOC. There is only 1 New Frontiers left for Asia now for the Winter Games that is Kazakhstan if Salt Lake City get's 2030 Almaty Kazakhstan could look strong for the 2034 Winter Games. Jakarta Indonesia is the strongest for New Frontiers for Asia for the Summer Games after being a brilliant back up host for the 2018 Asian Games they are the biggest country with the biggest economy in South East Asia if Europe host the 2032 Summer Games then Jakarta Indonesia could be a strong city to host the 2036 Summer Games Budapest Hungary looks to become the strongest bid in Europe for 2032 Summer Games, Germany like Sweden is look warm and Russia if it not with Moscow as the bidding city won't be that strong, Viktor Orban could bring very strong backing for a compact games in Budapest I can see Orban being the Prime Minister of Hungary for another decade, I think the regionalism with Italy 2026 will be a once off event, The IOC likes to have compact games Budapest Hungary could host a Summer Games if the IOC wants to go to Europe in 2032. Winter Games in Europe New Frontiers is Sweden but that will likely not happen for a while the strongest Frontiers is Barcelona no winter games have taken place in Western Europe they have pretty much all the indoors venues just need to build the snow and sliding events which could be shared with Andorra.
