  2. Won't be complaining about Joao Havelange hosting ceremonies because its capacity is slightly larger than Barcelona's Olympic Stadium. And it should not make perfect sense to hold Olympic ceremonies in a football-only stadium, whether it's larger or smaller than the athletics venue. If there is no ceremonies for Maracana, then the cauldron should not be at Maracana. They sould be reserved for the Engenhao Stadium only. Also, coming up with excuses about this will get us nowhere. If Maracana does host Olympic ceremonies, then a curse will be put on any future Olympic City, especially one who has a football-only stadium and no large multipurpose athletics stadium.
  3. Get it through their heads: Maracna will never be a true Olympic Stadium.
  4. Well, Ii ain't gonna shut up. This is all about keeping Maracana out of the Olympic Stadium picture.
  5. ^^No, Mo Rush. IOC shouldn't care if an existing Olympic Stadium is a tourist spot or not. If there are two stadiums planned to be the main Olympic Stadium, there's gonna be conflict, there's gonna be controversy surrounding that fact.
  6. i cannot get used to this at all. Sorry, but the Mario Filho Stadium should be rejected and disqualified from hosting Olympic ceremonies and hosting any events in the Summer Paralympics. There is no rule stating that Olympic ceremonies must be held in the largest football stadium regardless of whether or not it has a track.Get the ceremonies into the athletcs stadium lke Barcelona and Mexico City and there won't be any problems.
  7. Yes. IOC may be happy with this. I'm not. I think Maracana is violating a little something I call:
  8. A fifth 500+-room hotel (the Hotel Guanabara) exists in Rio's Central Business District. Rio de Janeiro is going to have the largest media village of any Olympic city (Summer or Winter). And what is the purpose of the proposed Maracana, Deodoro, and Port Villages?
  9. i shouldn't be pleased at all, I should get mad. I don't care about the track being ruined by the ceremony, they can just fix it before the competitions begin. This stadium situation is going to make the Rio de Janeiro Games a disaster. Using a football-only stadium for Olympic Ceremonies is un-Olympic. 2016 is the Un-Olympic year, a year of curse for the Summer Games. Rio just likes to make the wrong excuses. The IOC is wrong for doing so.
  10. Worse, I'm afraid Rio, like other Olympic Cites, can have only one main stadium.
  11. Wait till the 2011 World Military Games in Rio and see who deserveS to be the main Olympic Stadium. Joao Havelange Stadium is hosting athletics and ceremonies at that event. Rio is an Olympic City with no (proper) Olympic Stadium. A football-only stadium hosting Olympic ceremonies s a joke.
  12. I don't care if they like the idea. exclusive venue for IAAF athletics, my boot.
  13. If they're not hutongs, what were those houses that were demolished in the Olympic Green, then? Slums?
  14. ^^ No, Rio will just be like Montreal: a bad Summer Olympic city if athletics and ceremonies are not concentrated on the same site.
  15. If Maracana is to be in the lineage of Olympic Stadiums, it must not only host Ceremonies and Football Finals, but athletics as well, To host athletics events, the lower tier should be a movable stand to uncover an athletics track used for the Games.
  16. I looked at Google Earth and in the 2001 imagery, loads of hutongs and small apartment buildings (mostly hutongs) in Beijing were destroyed to make way for all the infrastructure for the 2008 Summer Olympics (roads, highways, parks, several venues and the Olympic Village, and the airport terminal).
  17. Even with that new (hopefully not final) design, I still don't think the Mario Filho Stadium should even be hosting the Olympic Ceremonies or be considered an Olympic Stadium, even with modifications to its new seating bowl. First of all, the seating bowl depicted in the new renderings does not match properly with its overall circular shape. Second, the upper tier looks too short. And third, why do the goal stands have to be a single tier?
  18. More concrete in the lower tier has been ripped up in the Maracana Stadium today, and all of the seats in the upper tier above the boxes have been removes.
  19. I think Paralympic ceremonies should happen in Joao Havelange Stadium, also.
  20. Just one question, what if the Mario Filho Stadium did NOT have any role in the 2016 Summer Paralympics? Wembley Stadium is not going to have a role in London's Paralympics, Camp Nou - no role in Barcelona's Paralympics.
  21. Besides the Maracana and Engenhao stadiums, should the Sambodromo and the Maracanazinho Arena also have a renovation before the Games?
  22. Mistake on the first post: I must have misidentified the Deodoro Cluster as the "Barra Cluster". Sorry about that.
  23. The Barra Cluster Deodoro Arena Capacity: 5,000 Events: Fencing National Equestrian Centre Capacity: 14,000 Events: Equestrian National Shooting Centre Capacity: 6,850 Events: Shooting Olympic BMX Centre Capacity: 6,000 Events: Cycling (BMX) Deodoro Modern Pentathlon Park Capacity: 20,000 Events: Modern Pentathlon Olympic Mountain Bike Centre Capacity: 5,000 Events: Cycling (Mountain Bike)
  24. If the field space of the Mario Filho Stadium is reduced, they they'll end up having to move the ceremonies to the (expanded) Joao Havelange Stadium.
