  1. Yea it would be good for New Zealand to bid for this. This will be good for our standing in the IOC.

    Rogge was recently in New Zealand for the New Zealand Winter games where the Oceania National Olympic Committees were meeting in Queenstown. Sebastian Coe was in New Zealand for this as well.

    I think it would be a historic event if Auckland held the 2013 IOC Session where South Africa was awarded the 2020 Smmer Games. Is there still anamosity over tha reign match in the 80s?

  2. Maybe the US should mount a bid...get the entire IOC in town and butter them up.

    Hold it in Honolulu, treat the IOC to a tropical vacation and have a huge Luau in their honor with hot-as-hell topless Hawaiian women as the servers. So when the USOC bids Honolulu for the 2032 games the IOC will be like "oh hells yes, that island was fuckign awesome! Damn straight I want to spend 2 weeks there at the Oahu Four Seasons"

  3. and each medals' wooden "reverse" would be hand carved, each medal unique and different...oh sh*t guys I think we have a winner.

    Only thing is i dont know what the front of the medal should look like. I'm thinking a high detaiul maple leaf on the fron, almost liek apressing, so you can see the veins of the leaft in detail. with the logo-dates- and Location underneath.

    We have a BINGO here.

  4. The Vancouver Olympic is also known as the sea to sky game.

    My idea

    The gold medal has a first nation design of a thunder bird (sky)

    The silver medal has a first nation design of a bear (land)

    The bronze medal has a first nation design of an orca (sea)

    Brilliant idea.

    If i could add to your idea

    1. The medals be really thick like NAGANO's.

    2. The first nation designs be made of lacqured British Columbian wood, and have the name of the sport/ discipline carved into the wood

    3. The metal part of the medal is like a frame for the wooden disc, the front of the medals be metal as would the rim and just a little overlap on the back.


  5. Cape Town 2020.

    Just wait till then and South Africa automatically fields 3 athletes in VERY discipline. Try and work up a better/ newer SAOC medal program and test it out in 2012 London and 2016(chicago/Rio) and with so many South African participating in 2020 Cape Town Games, I can foresee South Africa walking away with 25 medals.

    Shocking "home field advantage" improvements happen, just look at the US performance in Salt Lake City compared Nagano only 4 years earlier(we almost tripled our medal count).

    Just start HEAVILY recruiting young folks now so they will be ready by 2020. You just gotta build that program.

  6. I have heard no such thing about the medal design being announced this month.

    I think with all the hoopla over the 2016 vote that Vancouver will wait until after the election, let all the dust settle, and then announce on a landmark date like 100 DAYS UNTIL OPENING CEREMONY to show them off. I think 100 days is like early november.
