  3. Rio de Janeiro, host of the 2016 Olympic Games, is bidding to host the 2015 FINA world long-course swim championships, the Brazil federation has announced. The bid has the backing of President of the Brazilian Olympic Committee and head of the 2016 organising commitee, Carlos Nuzman. He said: "We hope for another big conquest for Brazilian sport. To bring the event to Rio a year before the Olympic Games we serve as a dress rehearsal to the big show Brazil will offer the world in 2016." The choice of 2015 venue will be made by FINA during the 2011 world championships from July 16 to 31 in Shanghai. Dubai is scheduled to host the 2013 long-course championships after its own dress rehearsal at the world s/c championships this December. http://www.swimnews.com/news/view/7642

    F1 2017

    Formula 1 2018 calendar revealed with first triple-header Formula 1 will have its first triple-header next year, with the French, Austrian and British Grands Prix all due to take place on consecutive weekends. The return of the French and German Grands Prix in 2018 prompted some headaches for F1's chiefs in trying to fit in enough races in to their traditional slots in the calendar. But in a draft schedule released following a meeting of the FIA's World Motor Sport Council in Geneva, France has been handed a June 24 slot and will be followed on subsequent weekends by the Red Bull Ring and Silverstone events. Other changes to the calendar include the Azerbaijan Grand Prix taking a slot in late April, with the Russian GP moving to September, where it will form a back-to-back with the Japanese GP. The races in China and Singapore remain subject to confirmation of deals with the commercial rights holder. The FIA has also confirmed the Le Mans 24 Hours will take place on June 16/17, meaning the famous sportscar race will avoid a clash with a grand prix for the second year in succession. F1 chairman and CEO Chase Carey said a lot of effort went into getting the calendar prepared further in advance than in previous years. "We wanted to finalise next season's calendar early, so that all our stakeholders would have more time to prepare and we have managed it, thanks in part through working closely with the FIA," he said. "The number of races has increased by one compared to the current season. "We received numerous requests from those wishing to host a Formula 1 grand prix but we wanted the existing promoters to feel that we are putting all our efforts into ensuring that each race is a special event, so that the fans, our most important stakeholders, can enjoy a unique and unforgettable experience. "If we can do that, then the entire Formula 1 family will reap the benefit." 2018 FORMULA 1 CALENDAR March 25 Melbourne, Australia April 8 Shanghai, China April 15 Sakhir, Bahrain April 29 Baku, Azerbaijan May 13 Barcelona, Spain May 27 Monaco June 10 Montreal, Canada June 24 Paul Ricard, France July 1 Red Bull Ring, Austria July 8 Silverstone, Great Britain July 22 Hockenheim, Germany July 29 Hungaroring, Hungary August 26 Spa, Belgium September 2 Monza, Italy September 16 Singapore September 30 Sochi, Russia October 7 Suzuka, Japan October 21 Austin, USA October 28 Mexico City, Mexico November 11 Interlagos, Brazil November 25 Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/130244/2018-f1-calendar-features-first-tripleheader

    FIFA World Cup 2030

    SKorea leader proposes Asian nations co-host 2030 World Cup SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea’s new liberal president has offered to co-host the 2030 World Cup with rival North Korea and other Northeast Asian countries as part of efforts to promote peace in the region, his office said Monday. Moon Jae-in made the proposal during a meeting with FIFA President Gianni Infantino at the presidential Blue House in Seoul, Moon’s office said in a statement. “If neighboring Northeast Asian countries including South and North Korea can host the World Cup, I think that would contribute to peace between South and North Korea and in the Northeast Asian region,” Moon told Infantino, according to Moon’s office. “I would like President Infantino to have interests on this matter.” Infantino was quoted as saying he respects Moon’s idea and that he will talk to Chinese President Xi Jinping about it when the two meet later this week. China and Japan reportedly want to host World Cup games individually. Also, last week the prospect for Moon’s push to expand cross-border exchanges with North Korea was thrown into doubt as North Korea rejected a Seoul civic group’s offer to provide relief items. Before taking office last month, Moon had said he would try to reach out to North Korea and improve ties badly strained over the North’s nuclear and missile programs. Since Moon’s May 10 inauguration, however, North Korea has conducted several missile launches in a show of its resolve to continue its weapons development program to cope with what it calls U.S. hostility. The two Koreas have been divided along the world’s most heavily fortified border since the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty. About 28,500 American troops are stationed in South Korea as deterrence against potential aggression from North Korea. The organizers of the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, hope North Korea will take part in the Winter Games. North Korea boycotted the 1986 Asian Games and the 1988 Seoul Olympics, both held in Seoul, but it has since attended other major international sports events held in the South. South Korea and Japan co-hosted the 2002 World Cup.

    Tokyo 2020 News - General

    Tokyo 2020 event programme to see major boost for female participation, youth and urban appeal The Executive Board (EB) of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) today approved the event programme for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. The decision marks a key milestone in the evolution of the Olympic programme by introducing youth and urban innovations, significantly improving gender equality, and reducing the overall number of athletes hence reducing the Games’ footprint. Commenting on the decision, IOC President Thomas Bach said “The fascinating new events that we approved today, together with the five new sports that were added to the Tokyo 2020 programme last year, represent a step-change in the Olympic programme. I am delighted that the Olympic Games in Tokyo will be more youthful, more urban and will include more women”, Bach added. The EB decision will lead to a net increase of 15 events, an overall reduction of 285 athletes from Rio 2016, and the highest representation of female athletes in Olympic history. In Tokyo, the number of mixed events will double from nine in Rio 2016 to 18. All new events will make use of existing venues. Today’s decision is a significant step towards achieving the 50 per cent gender balance at the Olympic Games in both athletes and events, as clearly stated by Olympic Agenda 2020. Four new International Federations (IFs) will move to gender-balanced in events for the first time (Canoe, Rowing, Shooting and Weightlifting). In terms of athletes, six IFs will move to gender balance for the first time (Canoe, Judo, Rowing, Sailing, Shooting and Weightlifting). At discipline level, gender balance is achieved in BMX Racing, Mountain Bike and Freestyle Wrestling. The programme also includes youth-focused and urban-based additions such as Basketball 3x3 and BMX Freestyle, on top of Sport Climbing and Skateboarding. Basketball 3x3 was a successful innovation at the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore 2010 and Nanjing 2014. Sport Climbing and Skateboarding were proposed along with Baseball/Softball, Karate, and Surfing by Tokyo 2020 last year. The next edition of the Summer Youth Olympic Games, which will take place in Buenos Aires in October 2018, will already feature BMX Freestyle, Karate and Sport Climbing as well as several new innovative urban sports such as Breakdance and Roller Sports. ... https://www.olympic.org/news/tokyo-2020-event-programme-to-see-major-boost-for-female-participation-youth-and-urban-appeal

    Tokyo 2020 News - General

    Tokyo organizers reach agreement on allocation of 2020 costs TOKYO (AP) — Organizers of the Tokyo Olympics reached a broad agreement Wednesday on the allocation of costs for the 2020 Games with the metropolitan, national and local governments of the seven prefectures and four other cities hosting events. Governments outside Tokyo that are to host competitions agreed on basic principles concerning cost sharing. Yoshiro Mori, the head of the organizing committee, said the agreement was a step forward. “I think our preparation has been at least one year behind,” Mori said. “We want to speed up the process now so that we can catch up.” The seven prefectures hosting events are Hokkaido, Miyagi, Fukushima, Saitama, Chiba, Kanagawa and Shizuoka. The four other cities are Sapporo, Saitama, Chiba and Yokohama. Representatives from seven prefectures expressed satisfaction that the organizing committee and Tokyo Metropolitan Government will pay for expenditures to build temporary facilities for venues outside the capital. Local governments had previously objected to the idea that they would have to shoulder part of the costs to build temporary facilities. Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike said the broad agreement was “a big step forward” that would allow stakeholders to accelerate preparations toward staging a successful Olympics in 2020. “With the games coming up in three years, we have to rush our preparation,” Koike said. All the parties additionally agreed to set up a management committee for collaborative projects which aims to further reduce costs. The committee will regularly review the specific tasks related to games preparation and operation. Organizers announced in December a rough estimate for the total cost of hosting the games of between 1.6 and 1.8 trillion yen ($13-$15 billion). http://www.artesianews.com/1462337/tokyo-organizers-reach-agreement-on-allocation-of-2020-costs.html
