  1. The secret ballots was done long ago. What I mean is that with just a single candidate, the votes is still doing secretly, which is good, so IOC members can do their selection (Yes, No or abstain) with their vote, to show if they agree with the "future host commission" selection. Nonetheless, the favour is still go to Brisbane for sure.
  2. It is good that the vote will be conducted secretly. Now we shall see if the IOC members from those who wants to bid for 2032, will vote against the proposal.
  3. Tokyo 2020 organised 2 cultural events online during past weekend, and the Sunday show "Nippon Wasai" has a great AR showcase. Here is the link: If feel too long, fast forward to 41:30, which the new National Stadium is featured.
  4. Maybe they are checking for the firework placement.
  5. Tokyo 2020 team announced the concept of the Opening Ceremony: https://olympics.com/tokyo-2020/en/news/tokyo-2020-unveils-concepts-behind-games-opening-and-closing-ceremonies
  6. Based on current IOC's trend of host selection, it will be hard for Istanbul, unless they start doing enough communication and relationship to ensure they get enough votes. In short, know how's the games being played. Istanbul 2020 bid made many great effort, too bad the opponent too strong.
  7. Seriously, what's wrong with those guys from #NoOlympicsAnywhere? Were they hate Olympic because they were not selected to participate, or anti-social? Whichever they commented are just so negative, and useless to improve the society. They can't suggest alternative.
  8. Back to this forum after so many years. What a waste to see empty seats. Actually if can allow 1000++ local fans would be good. Saw some baseball matches in Japan TV stations, are with spectators. Wonder why double standard as such, as long as SOP is followed properly.
  9. Try Seoul station area, and buy KTX Pyeongchang Rail Pass. Once the time table is available in Dec 2017, make reservation as early as possible, to avoid miss out the Games session.
  10. I booked a 2-star hotel near Seoul station. Planning to travel with KTX (exclusive for foreigner during Games time), to PyeongChang and Gangneung.
  11. Yes, no news yet from Mediacorp, SingTel or StarHub about the coverage of Rio 2016. Mediacorp is focusing to promote subscription of Euro 2016 package in its Toggle App. Very bad news for Singapore sport fans if no live coverage on TV, as we are the 1st YOG host.
  12. 10:30am local time will resume. 10 more minutes from now. http://www.mediafire.com/view/9c2mqkoo8l309zr
  13. Outside the hall now. Lots of Malaysian are coming over and support Beijing. By the way, how to post the photo here?
  14. I am in KL now. Tomorrow will go to KLCC Park area. I am in KL now. Tomorrow will go to KLCC Park area.

  16. Let it be with Delhi, and make things more messy! Times to re-structure OCA!
  17. If Singapore to take over the 2019 Asian Games, she will need to face the problem of providing the Games village, as well as the venues for some big events, such as Football (need several stadiums. YOG only have 1, and only 16 countries (8 Boys 8 Girls) in football tournament), Canoeing, Cycling Velodrome, etc. YOG Swimming and Diving are not the same venue as well. For Games Village, what I can help to think is to rent the cruise during Games time, or co-host with Iskandar region, as there is a lot of upcoming property projects coming up (Iskandar region is in Johor Bahru, 2nd largest city in Malaysia). There is a high-speed train project going on, and it can be used for the Games period first.
  18. Will the members that can vote in the final round to think about whether to place the Games back-to-back in Asia in 2018 and 2020? I doubt some might switch the votes from Tokyo to Istanbul in the final round...
  19. I also think so now that one of the triangle roof will turn into Couldron. They already installed long time ago!
  20. Well done India! except Kalmadi. Good night everyone from Singapore.
