  1. At least the 2023 Basketball World Cup in the Philippines, Japan & Indonesia had a much better, yet understandable trophy-and-numeral logo, with both the '23' (or likely sometimes the 'B'-letter) and the Naismith Trophy are being depicted in the form of a heart - it signifies the three Asian nations' love and passion for basketball, and to me, it symbolizes the value of 'Puso', a Filipino meaning for 'heart'. To top it all, you got the national colours of all the three hosting countries.
  2. There's almost no need for them to showcase some Hollywood references in the ceremonies, because adding with sprinkles to it, the ceremonies should showcase equality, ethnicity and race, and especially LA's diasporic communities and its people, knowing that diversity would likely be its theme for the 2028 Games (as noticed in its emblem) since the city is among one of the most multicultural cities in the world.
  3. I'm only just making an example here if there's only one term for an IOC president. But at least Bach is doing a good job, and for his decisions, we have a calendar of Olympic hosts (most of them had staged once or twice) that are more experienced in staging bigger-scale events such as the Olympics, Los Angeles 2028 and Milano-Cortina 2026 are clear examples of that, as sometimes, they used mostly existing facilities.
  4. To be honest, Yes, the IOC should come see their senses from what FIFA had experienced back then, and for example, this should start by limiting an IOC presidency for only one term, meaning that he or she is ineligible for re-election. By theory, if it was enforced today, Thomas Bach wouldn't been re-elected back in March for a second term, and his successor would have presided over Tokyo 2020. Secondly, they should need an IOC Council to add that, and council members would be elected by their respective National Olympic Committees; in addition, an IOC president would no longer have the power to cast votes. All of these are based out of FIFA's reforms to exercise good governance, transparency, and accountability.
  5. The Malay oil-lamp-themed cauldron may be bigger or monolithic, but unlike the others, the flame itself looked medium-sized when it's lit.
  6. Don't forget that one from the 2017 SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur.
  7. We may still did not know yet if it was from Olympic Broadcasting Services, but that background loop looks like it is legit, and it is likely to be used by some broadcasters, either possibly as a studio background or in split screens.
  8. Unless that's your opinion, quite though... But we hoped that everything would be safely and successfully settled in Tokyo once the Games leave town. Again, we know that Japan would pull this off despite this current situation, especially when it comes to excelling their innovation.
  9. I hope that security in Tokyo would be much tighter during Games time, but turbulence in the host city was too very concerning for an event like the Olympics, which is being held in a major-scale. Once again, we cannot afford an another bloodied tragedy similar to the Olympic Village massacre during Munich 1972; where 11 members of the Israeli team were killed, and the bombings during Atlanta 1996; in which one person was perished (another person later died of a heart attack), and 111 others were injured at Centennial Park.
  10. To us, as Olympic fans, that sentiment against the Games and even the IOC are truly a new breed of cancel culture. We don't want money and politics to be surrounded everywhere before and during the Olympics, and that's because diversity and tranquility through sport is more independent from both. For those who were 'Anti-Olympic-ers', they've looked back to the Games' darker past, and once more because of what they are doing in an IOC virtual meeting last month, just as you said, they had acted too much in order to ruin its reputation.
  11. Just like it was used from London 2012 ceremonies (especially the 2017 SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur and the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta)?
  12. Even under Hiroshi Sasaki (who was resigned as creative director earlier this year), it's like we saw only minor changes or looked almost exactly the same as MIKIKO's ceremony concept, but let's wait and see what this extravaganza unfolds, or what has modified from her original proposal.
  13. Japan would need to learn from their mistakes if they considered bidding for an another Olympics sometime, unless they should use existing venues, or even ones built for 2020, just as Paris and LA does for their next respective Olympics in both 2024 and 2028. Also, if we all want an Olympics being held in countries more than only one, it would be nice if Japan joins alongside with Korea to bid for the Games, doing the same feat when the two Asian countries staged the FIFA World Cup in 2002. If awarded, both Japan and Korea would use their shared hosting honors to not only promote peace, but to showcase their reconciliation to the entire world, as the two countries were at political conflict for a very long time. But for both countries and the IOC right now, let reputational and financial recovery do the hard work.
  14. We just got to wait until either the IOC would copyright claim this video, just as the one from Rio was leaked three months prior to the 2016 Games; and then was taken down in the following month, or one of its official broadcasters would preview this, just like Romania's TVR did, to use it for their promo of its PyeongChang 2018 coverage. And hopefully, this would end with Tokyo 2020's emblem being shown in the end rather than the OBS logo, and if it does, it would be the first time that we would see an emblem being featured in an official Summer Olympics intro since Barcelona, in which the 1992 Games' logo was shown in the final seconds of it; alongside the wordmark 'RTO '92'. It can work well as a template for other broadcasters so they could add their own logo in the end, for example: If you were watching the Games from other countries like Singapore, then the logo of Mediacorp would be shown alongside Tokyo's emblem, and the words 'Official Broadcaster'. Also, OBS have already done this method of placing the official emblem in the end, these examples were the TV titles of the Youth Olympics in both Buenos Aires 2018 and Lausanne 2020.

  15. For Sapporo, the city was considered a favorite to stage the 2030 Winter Games, but for Barcelona's bid, this can also considered as historic because the Pyrenees straddles between Spain, Andorra, and France, and to date, we've never seen an Olympics being held in multiple countries more than one. And this bid here is representing not just one, but three different countries. It looks like the IOC is facing tough choices for 2030, because there are a lot of interesting cities that can be identified sometimes, as a favorite or a historic bid, so the IOC should need to find a compensation and a resolution to these cities. But Sapporo would have deserved it too because they had never hosted an another Winter Games since 1972, so does Japan since 1998 in Nagano, and especially since this year's Tokyo Games. If the city wants more time to prepare, they should be opted for 2034 instead, which means there is a lot of time to rehabilitate and redevelop the existing venues from 1972 if they would be used, and it would also be better for Sapporo if they staged the games without public funding, in which Vancouver's 2030 bid have brought themselves a possible financial concept for some future bidders. That bidding problem would be solved for the IOC if they decided to double award both the 2030 and 2034 Games, just as Paris and LA did for both 2024 and 2028, or even better, to announce the host city 11 years prior to that year's Games. To give you an example: The awarding of the host city for 2036 would've been decided during the Athens IOC Session in 2025. This scenario here is based from a possible outcome that Brisbane would likely be awarded the 2032 Games during this year's IOC Session in Tokyo.
