    Transport

    It has been announced today that the construction of line 15, the only Grand Paris Express metro line in construction as of today, is delayed with opening in 2024. Given that all the other lines of the Grand Paris Express are not yet in construction, it can be easily deduced that no new metro line will be available at the time of the Olympic Games. Le calendrier du Grand Paris Express ne sera pas respecté So you can forget about the fast connection to the Airports that Grand Paris Express was supposed to bring.

    Paris 2024

    Maybe keeping the same logo would show the organizing committee is cost-conscious. No new expense of logo brainstorming and creation ?

    Tickets

    I have A category on all my tickets but one, which has not happened to me ever (seventh time I go to the Games). So there must really be a problem with sales.

    Nice article (in French, sorry) which explains that the transportation plan promised for the Games (also called Grand Paris Express) is unaffordable and that the French Government discussed internally the issue on August 2... Cost is 35 billion euros and not 22 billions as originally planned. And of course the construction has not even started. Les JO c’est gagné, mais le Grand Paris Express ça coince très fort

    Paris 2024 Ceremonies

    I think you have only partial memory of the ceremony (remembering the bungee cord dance and so on). The local element was present, both in terms of music and shows on stage. You had all the local dance groups from the whole area brought to the ceremony for instance. You had horn players, traditional clothes and so on. For me there was a correct balance between grounded, local stuff and universal things. Of course you had not the mustached, beret and baguette Frenchman.

    LA 2028 Ceremonies

    La la land might become a Broadway musical so if successful it could still be around by 2028

    I do not know how it looked like on TV but as a spectator it was just one of the greatest shows I have seen.

    I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food trough wiper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!
  19. At least we can expect there will be no referendum in Almaty and Erzurum. I think if any European bid (Alps or Scandinavia) survives the referendum, it is the winner. Medium term solution (2030 ?) would be to go for France, there is no referendum there either.

    Populous To Design Beijing’s National Speed Skating Oval For 2022 Winter Olympic Games
  21. Are the dates of the Games known ? 2024 bid was July 19 to August 4 so I would bet on July 21 to August 6 2028 but has it been confirmed somewhere ?

    Toulouse I think would work. With a ski resort, for instance in Andorra.
