Bronze (3/16)



  1. Tokyo gets a bonus point for introducing animated pictograms. I enjoyed that innovation during the broadcasts of the two most recent Olympics.
  2. It is the lowest number of total entries since 2001 though RUS/BLR ban probably plays heavily into that, along the event being held in the post-Olympic year and in North America (winter athletes tend set up shop in Europe for the season). I’m still excited for another multi-sports games nonetheless!
  3. I won’t be submitting any entries this year. The level is just too high! Sincerely, a tip off the cap to everyone who has shared their amazing designs so far. I can’t wait to vote on them
  4. I quite enjoyed the ceremony as well. Mechanical bull was by far the highlight, though I did really like the whimsical hot air balloon segement as well. Also, shoutout to the athletes who really brought some energy to the parade of nations.
  5. This is from Bulletin #2 released by the local organizing committee. However, I should note that Bulletin was released pre-postponement. ”The BOC and IWGA have engaged world-renowned International Sports Broadcasting (ISB) to provide host broadcasting services for The World Games 2021 Birmingham. The BOC and ISB have a joint meeting in October to discuss details about production hours, sport coverage and overall production planning. As with The World Games 2017 Wroclaw, a 24/7 Channel will be available for the global distribution of The Games. In addition, international broadcasters will get the chance to pick up specific streams of sports that are popular in their countries. ISB will use up to eight OB vans for the production of the TV signal. ISB will not only act as the production arm of The World Games 2021; they will take over the international marketing of the media rights too. In addition, IWGA and ISB plan to continue to work with Olympic Channel to secure distribution of The World Games 2021 to all territories in the world.”
  6. I’d say it’s pretty much the same for me I voted Rio 2016 as my favorite summer ceremony. I liked the message and theme of the ceremony. I liked that the creative team was willing to address topics like colonialism, slavery, social discord, and climate change. It was a bold creative risk to take. I can also appreciate what they were able to achieve on a smaller budget compared to the previous edition of the Games. Projections were used well, and the favela set design was unique. The music was fun and varied. Plus, I really like the cauldron concept they went with, and that they chose de Lima to light it.
  7. I wanted to get involved much sooner, unfortunately I struggled to find some inspiration for designs this year Fortunately, I was finally able to come up with something for Glasgow 2034. I didn’t have much time to throw it together, but here’s what I came up with: https://imgur.com/gallery/ygmzA4D The design is inspired by, and titled, “Flower of Scotland.” Blue and white flames form petals of the flower, with a curling house with thistle colors forming the innards of the flower.

  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.

  14. 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.
