  1. Munich Germany - Innsbruck 2030 Bid seems difficult because it's 2 countries... Germany or Austria are able to host WoG without anyone else. But maybe we could see this kind of bid between two countries in the futur. I imagine Geneva/Chamonix/Annecy but impossible. .
  2. It seems to be a spread bid. It could be more compact with only Brisbane and Gold Coast. Brisbane + Toowoomba + Sunshine coast + Gold Coast, it's to much if we compare with the latest summer Bids. Excepted this point, this bid could be a good one.
  3. We could see another European bid, like PC 2018 and Beijing 2022.
  4. Will it be Brisbane alone or Brisbane and Gold Coast ?
  5. I'm not sure you need a big city, a middle size city could be ok to host WoG. You need a stadium to host opening/closing ceremonies, it could be a temporary one like in Salt Lake, Albertville etc. To host speed skating you need an athletics track who can be transform in a temporary ice track. For Ice Hockey, Figure Skating and Short track you need something more durable but for a middle size city isn't a problem, but I think it's the most important expense item with olympic village (Capacity around 2800 Athletes). Where I live the city grow up about 2000 people each year since 20 yea
  6. Annecy won't bid again, the city is overcrowed because there are already too much tourists. Moreover the city has some problems with air pollution. Citizen don't want WoG and no more tourists, it's an import issue for citizen since some years. It will be very difficult to see WoG in France in the futur, there is a very strong opposition about WoG in the Alps and about this kind of business. With the news IOC rules to Bid, maybe we could se a bid from Lyon... But I'm not optimist about. WoG lost a lot in public opinion with Sotchi, Peyongchang and now Beijing... It's too late to change
  7. I like, Japan is a great place to host WoG. I have nothing against Asia, only against bullshit bid like PC or Beijing for WoG.
  8. Since de beginning I said Korean paid bribes to host WoG... Now it's official. WoG in Asia are a big mistake and now it will be Beijing... It's stupid to go there.
  9. For sure they cheated to host WoG, PC 2018 were the worst WoG in the history. Munich and Annecy had better bids. But IOC is corrupted.
  10. Turin 2006 was good but I think if WoG comeback in Europe it will be better in a smaller city than Turin and closer to the mountains. WoG need to back to a village atmosphere and to be more authentic, like Lillehammer, Albertville, Innsbruck etc.
  11. I'm agree with you too, but what's happen if like for 2022 all the European or even North American bids give up ? We could have the same story.
  12. If Sapporo bids, Japan will probably win. Swiss like every time will say no to the referendum Public opinion and politic will be against for Lillehammer, like for Austria. Stockholm isn't a reasonable bid and Swedish opinion will be against like in Norway Calgary may be the only opponent to Sapporo... But they need politic approval... 2026 won't be in Europe.
  13. PC 2018 cost 14 billions instead of 6,4 billions, one more time Olympic Games are a fail about this point, one more time local population will pay, one more time IOC don't care... It's the reason why public opinion is against WoG in Europa. It will be the same for Beijing, the WoG as the IOC wants aren't profitable.
  14. I read newspapers, I watch news. PC spent twice as much as expected for WoG. The legacy is already a failure.
  15. If IOC stay in Asia, it's the end of WoG and the Beginning of Winter Asian Games.
  16. PC 2018 WoG has been well organized by Korea, I had a good surprise with Freestyle tracks that were good, with a good shaping. But it wasn't real WoG like we can expect : There were many problems like the lack of popular fervor and supporters, many seats in outside competitions were empty ,It was sad games without emotions. Usually WoG are a big party, not this time, we didn't see crazy supporters excepted North Korean Cheerleaders. In Biathlon, Nordic Ski, Alpin Ski and even in Freestyle ski the atmosphere was flavorless...Many Athletes criticized this point. I don't understand wh
  17. not in these proportions. PC 2018 wasn't a popular success.
  18. Japan too, but Korea aren't China good for WoG. Athletes and public opinion criticisms these choice...
  19. Definitively you said Bullshit informations, Korea at home did great games, like every country than host WoG, we missed some easy medals in these games especially in sliding and skating sports, would like mean the sun is over ? Of course not, look winter sports results not only WoG, we are always in the top 10 since the beginning... Korea will stay back after PC, you will never develop winter sports, you will stay strong only in short track... One sport, good for you. You are more stupid than I imagine.
  20. I don't understand why it's a problem to have spread out bid ? Do you need to see Alpin ski the morning, Skeleton the afternoon and Ice skating the evening in the same day when you are spectator ? I think not. Usually you come to a place to see one sport per day. Maybe one the morning and another one the evening, I did this sometimes. When you are a supporter or spectator you don't need to see everything in the same day... Really the main part of supporters come to a place to see their favorite sport and after they enjoy the day to visit the village or the city close to the venues, they don't
  21. Two questions : Where are the full stadium ? IOC lies about tickets sold Where are the natural snow ? Thank a USA company for PC fake snow Reality about fake snow
  22. You are a lier. All newspapers, all TV reports said during this WoG, many times Stadium were empty... excepted for ice events. I trust journalists more than you, sorry. Look a picture from Alpine Downhill, nobody. Criticisms from French and Swiss Journalists : Swiss newspaper (In french) (Shame on IOC and Korea) France info. (No spectators) Please stop your bullshit now.
  23. Do you think they will change the Korean Peninsula problem ? Are you so naive ? If South Korea got closer from North Korea it's only to avoid terrorism attack from north Korea during WoG like for Seoul 1988 (North Korea destroyed with a bomb a south korean plane). When you destroyed a national forest to build a track and when you use 98% fake snow isn't a scandals ? I don't know where you live but I read many criticisms about this the last 15 days. PC like Sotchi and soon Beijing showed they aren't able to manage winter events with global warming and environmental issues. Korean PC 20
  24. You prove only one thing, you know nothing. France is regularly the first winter destination in the world for winter sports/holidays sometimes is USA, sometimes France, sometimes Austria. (In 2015 France was first, in 2016 Second et third in 2017, but each time its very close between the 3 countries.). France is in top 3 since the beginning of winter sports. You are totally mad when you say the contrary. Korea will remains far away European and North american countries. Even with PC 2018 Korean remain a minor winter nation/destination. Do you really think than PC will become famous like
  25. They won is skeleton because they trained on their track during a longtime, more than others countries. Korea has never won something in skeleton outside Korea. Empty seats is an indicator about popular fervor and when it's empty it means : nobody care... It's fact. It's because you never see something else than korean event... It wasn't crowed, too many empty seats in too many sports... Really the atmosphere was bad about public excepted in ice area. There are a lot of criticisms about this point, sometimes you had more volunteers than publics... It's a fail. In Europe ea
