  1. That’s my understanding of the system anyway.
  2. Under Agenda 2020 the host country/city/entity of the Games can select a few sports that have regional/national importance, sports they wish to grow nationally, or sports they wish to showcase. These sports are not core sports on the program, and thus might be best described as “one-offs” in principle. However, as we’ve seen with Tokyo and Paris, some countries will choose the same sports under this criteria. So as a hypothetical, Brisbane could ask for the likes of Cricket, or Lawn Bowls, or Netball, or Surfing, etc. to be added to the official sports program for that edition of the Games. There’s also a possibility the core sports program will have changed by the Brisbane 2032 Olympic Games. The IOC is supposed to hold a vote every 4 (or 8, can’t remember which) years to remove one sport from the core sports program, and then have an open election for that spot (the sport that is removed can run to be reinstated, which is what happened to wrestling before Rio).
  3. IOC EB Meetings aren’t broadcast. There is a press conference after each one that can be accessed via the IOC Media YouTube Channel. IOC Sessions are generally broadcast to the same channel and Olympic Channel.
  4. Hilmer Lodge Stadium (Mt. Sac) recently finished the renovations on their stadium, the university claims the permanent capacity is 11,500 and that it the stadium can be expanded to a larger capacity if needed. The new facility looks really nice, and I believe it is WA certified. Info: https://www.mtsacathleticscomplex.com/main-facilities/stadium-track-field
  5. Germany has all but been awarded the 2025 Summer Universaide from my understanding. North Carolina also recently announced their bid for the 2027 Summer Universaide. So perhaps Brisbane could consider 2029 or 2031 if they wanted to use the Universaide as a test event.
  6. Our green overload from an egg-shaped planet (@yoshi) has requested logos, and I am not one to disappoint. Here is my Milano-Cortina 2026 entry: https://imgur.com/gallery/wML8c4e The logo consists of a mountain peak, slalom ski gates, and a typeface. The mountain peak (that I have nicknamed “The Pinnacles”) represents the craggy Dolomite mountain peaks that surround Cortina d’Ampezzo. The peak is colored gold to symbolize the glory of victory, and the shape of the peak is reminiscent of the podium. The slalom gates are formed by pillars that resemble the architecture of the famous San Siro Stadium in Milan. The slalom gates are also colored green and red in a reference to Italy’s national colors. The typeface is in a style that feels modern, yet evokes a blast to the past. It brings to mind those classic ski resort style typefaces used in the early days of skiing, that was still in use when Cortina previously hosted. Here is my Brisbane 2032 entry: https://imgur.com/gallery/uhdtAGm The logo consists of one main graphic element and a typeface. This logo represents both the Brisbane of modern times, and the Brisbane of past eras. The graphic element has three main parts: a stylized B, a sun, and the sun’s rays. The stylized B represents the Brisbane River. The B flows like the river and it is placed centrally in the sun, since the Brisbane River is the “life-blood” of Brisbane in many ways. It is colored in that dark green color that many urban waterways have. The Sun represents the well-known Australian heat and beach culture, as well as, the heat of Olympic competition. The yellow color of the sun, and the dark green color of the river, also form the colors used in much of Australia’s national sports attire. The Sun’s Rays are formed by shark fins. These represent the Bull Shark, a fearsome predator of the Brisbane River and surrounding ocean areas. Their placement around the sun also suggests motion, which breathes life into the logo. Finally, the typeface is formed by a modern font, that has been stylized in a manner similar to aboriginal artwork.
  7. I have tired imbedding, using the “insert image from URL” feature, and both Flickr and Imgur. Absolutely nothing works for me. I have no clue what I’m doing wrong. I’m just going to post the links to the images on Imgur in my post, and hopefully you guys can view them that way.

  10. I couldn’t get the photo to post from Imgur, so unless there’s someone I can send the images to, I’ll have to bow out.
  11. @yoshi What is the best way to post the logos, since I can’t figure out how to upload them directly to the forum?
  12. @yoshi I have an entry for Milano-Cortina. I’m still trying to find time/inspiration to put a Brisbane one together.
  13. I joined not too long ago myself, so I don’t have much advice to offer up, but I’ll say hi back
