  1. The resort seems to be getting built with or without hosting these games so probably its construction won't be included in the games' cost.
  2. Haha. I can't believe I said that. Are the African Games even big enough to be a decent stepping stone to hosting an Olympics?
  3. They really should host the Asian Games first.
  4. The problem with building a stadium elsewhere is one of the new stadium or the Gabba will turn into a white elephant. They could potentially knock down the Gabba and repurpose the land but that'd be a huge shame because part of the reason the cross river rail station is there is because there's a stadium next door.
  5. Is a traditional torch really that unsustainable?
  6. As far as I'm aware FINA doesn't have any requirement that a pool be indoors so unless the organisation that arranges the Pan-Am Games has there own special requirements I doubt an outdoor pool would be a problem. These are some other major championships that I can recall were outdoors: 2022 European Champs (Rome, ITA) 2018 Comm Games (Gold Coast, AUS) 2014 Pan Pacific Champs (Gold Coast, AUS) 2009 World Champs (Rome, ITA) Probably there are others.
  7. Baseball makes first pitch for Brisbane 2032 inclusion
  8. Neither of the sisters were born in Compton and Richard moving his daughters to Compton was intended to toughen them up. https://slate.com/culture/2021/11/king-richard-movie-accuracy-will-smith-richard-williams.html
  9. Germany might be more willing to bid for an Olympics after Bach is gone.
  10. Not that I agree with Doha hosting but Doha is much closer to a European timezone than an East Asian timezone. London GMT+1 Paris GMT+2 Doha GTM+3 Beijing GMT+8 Tokyo GMT+9 Sydney GMT+10
  11. Mexico will be dropped in favour of a bid in the Europe/African timezone. They should focus on 2040.
  12. I still wouldn't go swimming in early September. Brrr.
  13. So they're gonna build a city and all the infrastructure needed to host an Olympics before 2036? You too silly Indonesia.
  14. They better get used to it because even Brisbane 2032 will have multiple villages.
  15. Track cycling doesn't have to be a problem except that organisers stubbornly insist that no event will be hosted in Melbourne.
  16. Excuse my ignorance because I know very little about stadiums in NZ but would Albany Stadium even fit a track? It appears to be rectangular.
  17. NZ or Malaysia would be preferable to another location in GB.
  18. It seems like a country wide bid shouldn't be too hard or expensive for NZ to pull off. Has anyone done up a possible list of venues?
  19. https://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/national/queensland/gabba-locked-in-despite-potential-olympic-cost-blow-out-20220801-p5b69p.html Most interesting part:
  20. Could you maybe use the title from the article for the links instead of just the url?
  21. Even so, New Zealand isn't much bigger than Victoria so it could be viable.
  22. World Athletics to introduce repechage round to track events from 200 to 1500 metres at the Paris Olympics in replace of the fastest qualifiers (top placings still go direct to semis). https://www.reuters.com/lifestyle/sports/world-athletics-introduce-repechage-round-paris-games-2022-07-25/ I thought this must be a joke when I first saw it!
