  1. Well, I found out the flame will be kept lit in Fukushima prefecture. That'll be better than just watching the lantern passing by with no spectators around, but behind window glasses.
  2. I get bored each time I look at pictures of that boring stadium.
  3. Is the Olympic flame going to get blown away or kept lit until next year?
  4. Is the logo going to get changed into the legend 'Tokyo 2021'?
  5. Good way to reset sportive calendars on this new decade. I never expected to experience an Olympiad ending on a non-leap-year.
  6. Each time I get bored of the overall graphic design, Olympic stadium look and the torch. My expectations are on the ceremonies.
  7. Exactly, I guess they haven't paid attention to their extra high expenses they have within 6 years. Is St. Dennis stadium being protected by the French police?
  8. It's not a bad idea if we are talking about saving; above all if the IOC will fully pay for the games (we all know or imagine how wealthy the IOC or any other sports international organization) and tax payers stop getting committed to such costly two-weeks sport party debt. Amid this host cities crises, my interest on the Olympics is fading away as well as most of people around the world who evidently don't care the OG are hosted, but we all now care about austerity. about the WOG, they should stay in SLC. Then we could avoid stressing the environment anywhere else in the world. after all, mos
  9. I believe it will be good for the USA to play along with Mexico and Canada. Everybody across the world like Mexicans and Canadians! Without them, Morocco would have won. That was my favorite bid.
  10. Just like Sayuri Ishikawa did dancing Tokyo Gorin Ondo 2020 (fure, fure)?
  11. I meant to be inaccurate with the flight time. The relevant part is that such huge territory for the WC may not have connecting flights among cities.
  12. I don't think distances could be a problem. Fans are likely to see the three host countries at once, with plenty flight connections among the three countries. i wouldn't see myself distances as a problem if I attended the events. Actually, with all those all-included tours to be offered in a region where every single international sport and non-sport events have been hosted. It takes four hours to fly from Montreal to Mexico City, also direct flights from Guadalajara to NYC or from Houston to Edmonton. Actually that's nothing in comparison to the UEFA Euro 2020. Don't forget that eleven
  13. Oh, it seems that fact heads to become a Japanese Olympic tradition. But I refuse the idea of non-athlete cauldron lighters with no actual sport achievements should never get the last relay. Calgary'88 and London 2012 pissed me off in that part.
  14. Anyway, it seems that the tendency of bi-national or even more countries getting involved for future WOG will be as usual as it is being with the FIFA WC. On the other hand, I agree with FYI, Calgary might not have the same chancesthan Stockholm because Whistler, and Canada is the second largest country in the world. sO i don't even picture athletes at the opening ceremony. Sion and Graz could be in disadventage, just for having hosted the WYOG. Riga Airport is only 30 to 40 minutes flight for bobsleigh, skeleton and luge. After all, most nothern Europeans go to Latvia to train, incl
  15. I hope the Japanese don't get too much of the tsunami event thing suring the relay. It was enought with the Hiroshima last torch carrier in 1964. I would be more interested on the relay across Olympic Japanese prefectures.
  16. Alexjc, that was my first Olympic memory consciously being aware. That is why to me it is with a classic Olympic stadium. I wouldn't even touch the fa├žade of the stadium. It's not fancy anymore, but still an open air Olympic stadium, with a second to none cauldron. I hope this time the lighting could be appreciated without the sulight just in front of the it. The fire hardly could be seen.
  17. Well, I really would love to see the Olympics in Sweden. The world does not remember their summer edition back in 1912.
  18. By the way, I liked the concept of United 2026, even the name. After all, two of the tripartite joint countries are officially named after the adjectiv of "United" and they are geograpghicaly, culturally and historically bonded and the three of them speak the most spoken and studied languages in the world.
  19. I guess LA wants to be part of the elite cities such as London and Paris for hosting 9 Olympic editions only those three cities. No need to worry for the WC. Just like Atlanta did during the 94-96 hosting awards. My favourite is still Morocco, but we all know that the 48 teams championship experiment split into the 3 countries may have none or lower risks if such huge amount of teams and matches to be played could succeed. To beging with, Mexico became the forst country to host the Olympic and the FIFA WC in a row, and the first one to host the WC twice with a 16 years gap, plus the stri
  20. Well, Beijing is a horrible, overcrowded and extremly polluted city with traffic like hell. Too shocking when arriving by train and look around with all those depressing and garlic stinky hutongs (slums) everywhere which are kept very well-hidden from the media and massive foreing tourists. I bet they might innovate to make the city more pleasant during the harsh Nothern Chinese winters which are bitterly cold. Unfortunately, China has been overexposed with so many multi-sports event, plus other international events. I guess the Chinese have not got so many choices, above all when Japan a
  21. Does anybody know how serious is Stockholm bidding for the 2026 WOG? It seems that the circumstances might make the chances for Sweden to host finally the WOG. That's an actual new frontier in a quite flat, but strong winter sports tradition country. On the other hand, Stockholm would be the first western Olympic city to have hosted Summer and Winter games.
  22. Japan's taboo culture is deeply rooted in Japanese people's minds that they, undoubtedly, would not even imagine depicting anything related to the WWII.
  23. Perhaps projections have become quite predictable that they are not as surprising as the ones before the millennium before them. It was better than PyeongChang in Sochi to me though. I doubt there would be handovers like SLC. The music and the stage setting riding real horses in a country where are rare to see, that was creative.
