  1. Indeed I am French. I joined Gamesbids when I was living in the US but now I have a job in NL.
  2. Well, after Albertville 1992, Lillehammer 1994, SLC 2002, Torino 2006, London 2012, Sochi 2014 and PyeongChang 2018, I am go for Tokyo 2020. I fly to Narita on July 22. My eighth Olympics. Sweet.
  3. Place de la Concorde stadium, seating 35,000 for the urban sports (Basket 3x3, BMX, climbing, skateboard, etc).
  4. We could have a game of « let us complete the face » with eyes, nose, chin....
  5. The Bobsleigh and Luge Track is now visible on Google Earth and Google Maps. From the picture it is nearly complete. See 40°31'13.93"N 115°46'51.08"E The Speed Skating venue is also visible See 40° 0'57.21"N 116°22'17.09"E
  6. I do not challenge that Milano is big enough for 2 arenas (3 in fact if you count the one for figure skating), I challenge the fact that it seems to be happily forgotten in the list of new constructions on Milan side. I guess it is the usual trick of "we would have built it anyway "
  7. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_Rink_Piné#/media/File:Miola_da_Costalta_2.jpg
  8. The statement about Stockholm having to build the speed skating facility is a bit ridiculous. When you see a picture of the current facility in Baselga di Pine, you see easily that the Italian facility will have to be built from anew as well. Plus the risk of having a white elephant in a city of pop 5,000 is a bit higher than with an ice rink in Stockholm. Also the Ice Hockey 1 does not exist either.
  9. One of the political consequences of this is the probable creation of the RIC (Referendum Initiated by the Citizens), a Swiss like system of referendums proposed by the citizens. This could become a major headache for the Paris Games. And of course this would make any future French bid problematic.
  10. Olimpiadi Invernali 2026: il Coni deciderà la candidata a settembre. Malagò spera in un’alleanza tra Milano e Torino Winter Olympics 2026: the CONI will decide the candidate in September. Malagò hopes for an alliance between Milan and Turin What will be the Italian candidate to host the 2026 Winter Olympics? The CONI takes time, it will be decided after the summer. For Giovanni Malagò, number one in Italian sport, the time will be used to try to unify the candidacies of Milan and Turin, at least according to the Turin edition of "La Repubblica". A commission will also be composed that will pass the candidatures to the scrutiny (there is also Cortina, ed). Malagò affirms this: "It is just a matter of reflection, and the IOC is also informed, in order to be able to make an assessment I do not say unanimous but as broad as possible. In the commission there will be Olympic and Paralympic athletes, and characters related to the world of sport. The possibility of involving people outside the world of sport was also encouraged, but I have reserved to talk about it in the end because it is a good idea but I do not want anyone to accuse us of interfering ". The timing of the choice of the Italian candidate thus slips: "Between the end of July and the beginning of September, because we want to make an evaluation of an objective nature. The dossiers are very complex and complex, we can not talk about the typology of the Olympic village, an application or another ".
