  1. 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 ?
  2. Street view is available in Gangneung and PC alpine area
  3. Toulouse I think would work. With a ski resort, for instance in Andorra.
  4. I am at the 쉬자모텔... in English it is SheZa Motel...
  5. For those interested Google has put on line the streets of Gangneung on Streetview

  8. They should not start acting crazy once they have gotten the Games. They present a medal concept, when they are still only candidates, which is unprecedented. And of course without any blessing from the IOC. They hint at so called sports which are not even recognized by the IOC
  9. That is so funny I am at the Eiffel Tower for the Bastille Day fireworks. And guess what, the music played during the fireworks is "Olympic fanfare and theme" by John Williams.
  10. Could they do some sharing like have a few 2024 events in the 2028 city and vice versa. Like sailing in LA during Paris Games and equestrian in Versailles during LA Games? Random selection...
  11. Grand Paris Express will be a major point to monitor in the coming years. The most useful corridors for the Games are currently scheduled to open for service in 2024. These last few years, subway construction projects in Paris have experienced delays and I cannot think of one which was delivered on schedule.
  12. Well there is a presidential election in France in 2022 so nobody knows who the IOC will have to open the Games. Could be worse than Trump. Also in 2028 it could be Ivanka.
  13. Now will LA accept to forego 2024 ? This reminds me when a plane is overbooked and they look for someone to agree to take the next flight with a cash premium.
  14. JO-2024: Emmanuel Macron rencontrera Thomas Bach lundi à Lausanne
  15. Thomas Bach : la double attribution Paris et Los Angeles est «une opportunité unique»
  16. Donald Trump will be in Paris on July 14 for Bastille Day. That will be an opportunity for Emmanuel Macron and him to discuss the aftermath of the Lausanne session.
  17. I booked a room in a motel near the Gangneung railway station so it will be ok for Olympic park and access to Alpensia.
  18. Melanchon is up in the polls by large figures so now you have a distinct possibility to have a president who is against Paris 2024 elected...
  19. In France, the legislative branch is much weaker than the executive branch. And the Senate is less powerful than the other Assembly. A Senate report has not much more value than the paper on which it is printed. This kind of decision takes place at Elysee Palace. I doubt such a plan would fare well there.
  20. Melenchon is against the Games. Hamon, Fillon and Macron are for the Games Le Pen is noncommittal Hamon: «Je soutiendrai avec toute mon énergie Paris 2024»
  21. In 2028 the risk is that the Games are opened by Ivanka Trump.
  22. Bid officially cancelled. Announced by the spokesman of the Hungarian government.
