    French tv commentators say Lord Coe will probably replace Thomas Bach. Did I miss something or are they just silly ?

    Final Medal Table

    That makes a quite realistic order of elimination in the IOC vote.

    Tokyo 2020 Handover

    This handover will mark the beginning of a 8-year Asian era for the Olympics. Next time the Games will be out of Asia will be 2024.

    Tokyo 2020 News - General

    I have been to Japan a few times and I am looking forward to going there for the Olympics. I hope we will discover in 2018 that the Koreans audiences have improved. The Olympics are now going for a eight year Asian era.

    I think I remember the crowd in Seoul was not very nice to the adversaries of Korea. I hope they have improved.

    Rio 2016: Your verdict

    Let's all agree that the worst Games ever were Saint-Louis and the best Lillehammer.
  15. All I know is that in France the travel accommodation and tickets will be provided by Eventeam and you can already register on their web site to be on their mailing list.
  16. The Germans are never happy when one of their own leads an international organisation. Look at Ratzinger for instance.

    Football in 2016

    Uh uh Neymar has a '100% Jesus' headband on his forehead on the podium during the medal ceremony, the IOC will not like it... Now will they put that on the organizers for letting it pass or on Neymar ?

    IOC Cools on Developing Nation Bids?

    Good thought. I wonder were we would stand now if Istanbul had been elected. We have to keep in mind that 36 IOC members thought it was a great idea. So for me the IOC has to choose between Paris 2024 then LA 2028 and LA 2024 then ... say... Amsterdam 2028.
  21. I can say it was also the case in LA and Seoul.
  22. Back to an old tradition: the final obstacle of the jumping event in Equestrian has a Japanese look and bears the Tokyo 2020 emblem. I'd be curious to know when it was done the last time, because there was no Rio obstacle in London as far as I can remember.

  24. Nice and compact shape. This gives an idea of the scale, based on the trucks; I expect one side of the Pentagon to be in the order of 100 m; that would give a surface of 17,000 sq-m.
