  2. Jess Fox's gold medal win today has really inspired me. I felt so much pride for her when she won. She deserves it so much and is an exceptional person. She is an idol. I'd love to give canoe slalom a go just a bit too old though!
  3. Did some research this morning on what Olympic and Commonwealth Games events CWG countries have hosted and bidded for so we could identify what Commonwealth countries are capable of hosting future Commonwealth Games. Europe: England (CWG host in 1934, 2002, 2022. CWG bidder in 1978. Summer OLY host in 1908, 1948, 2012. Summer OLY bidder in 1992, 1996, 2000. Summer YOG bidder in 2018 Scotland (CWG host in 1970, 1986, 2014. CWYG host in 2000, CWG bidder in 1966 Wales (CWG host in 1958. CWG bidder in 1994 Isle of Man (CWYG host in 2011. CWYG bidder in 2008 Gibraltar (CWYG bidder in 2021 Oceania: Australia (CWG host in 1938, 1962, 1982, 2006, 2018. CWYG host in 2004. CWG bidder in 1974, 1998. Summer OLY host in 1956, 2000, 2032.

  4. This would be perfect for the ceremony IMO
  5. Yeah but it can't completely deny and shut out what has happened in Australia since 1788. I hope there is a mix. Also expect to see a nod to multicultural Australia as that has helped shape our country too.
  6. Nothing wrong with that! They will provide awesome spectacles and great Olympics. My tip is Brisbane 2032 to pass Sydney 2000 and become the best Olympics ever.
  7. Yeah I think the ceremonies will be largely focusing on indigenous Australia. Whether I agree with it (to be the majority focus) that might be a different story. I’d like to see songs such as Waltzing Matilda. I still call Australia home, I am Australian, and Love you Queensland but I doubt it unfortunately.
  8. For a games meant to have no fans, there seems to be quite a few around most notably the cycling and swimming today!
  9. Good Naomi imagine drones moment silence for Munich 72’ bad too many ad breaks causing the channel seven coverage to be delayed. parade of nations too long commentators talking too much through the OC Speeches were too long performances on a whole were boring too many digital pre recorded aspects no fake crowd sound athletes should’ve gone into the stands no cross between village and OC considering not too many athletes could attend Double standards. Some performers weren’t wearing masks. Fireworks show was quite disappointing
  10. A very underwhelming ceremony. Also in future they need to work out a way to make the Parade it Nations shorter. Tonight it just dragged on too much despite having less athletes marching due to COVID.
  11. Another thing too is if there wasn’t the joint awarding of the games in 2017, Brisbane would’ve been a major contender for 2028. This then have them extra time to focus on 2032 and get all the guarantees from levels of government.
  12. the NRL are hoping for Rugby League Nines to be included in Brisbane https://www.nrl.com/news/2021/07/22/olympics-a-priority-rugby-league-aiming-for-brisbane-2032-games/amp/
  13. I don't get why this was brought up? Surely this conversation could've been held behind close doors not a discussion whether they are attending and the reasons why Mr Coates wants the Premier to attend (btw I think she should attend) the Ceremony. It was a public press conference when you answer questions from the media not have a 'chat'!
  14. Suggesting that John Coates' involvement in the bid was the only reason that Brisbane were awarded the games has no sense whatsoever. Can you just but your saltiness behind you PLEASE! Whatever you say won't change the fact that Brisbane are hosting the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games!
  15. From now to 2032, Australia would’ve hosted the Women’s World Cup 2023, Rugby World Cup 2027, World Athletics Championship and the potential for other major international events in the lead in to Brisbane. Wouldn’t be surprised to see 2030 CWG in Australia either.
