  1. WOW! 209.658 fans for group stage assistance in a U17 Women's World Cup!! That's a record!

  2. Women's U-17 World Cup Costa Rica 2014 has started! I'm so excited!! :D

  3. Thank you Repretel, you understood us who wanted to watch Paralympics.

  4. Shame on you IPC! How do you dare to block your YouTube streaming to another countries? Where did you leave your anti-discrimination ideals?

    1. Rob.


      I don't think Paralmpic coverage is a human right. Will write to Ban Ki-Moon to check

      Which country are you currently in?

  5. Hello again Sochi! It's Paralympics time!

  6. After watching the video I understand the sense of the logo, but they could have still made a more decent logo which looks tasteless.
  7. I guess this should mean for the athletes parade that there won't be a trackwise footpath like in athetics stadiums, it would be good to see a creatively designed footparh like in Salt Lake
  8. YES!!! 2014 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup is back to us! That made my day! :D

      Good to hear, a 3 hour flight from Quito.

  9. Yes, but it's still important, if it's inside people will complain that visitors can't see it, if it's outside people in the stadium will complain that they couldn't see the cauldron lighting. Obviously if you're going to build an olympic stadium pointing to OLYMPICS you must take that in count.
  10. Not the cauldrons by themselves, but where to put them, only Beijing knew to deal with it in a beautiful way (at least for me)
  11. Thank you San Jose and Central America for this beautiful games, see you in Managua 2017!

  12. I guess since Olympic Stadiums started to have 360º roofs over the tribunes cauldrons have become a complete headache
  13. Watch CA Games closing ceremony live here NOW http://www.telenoticias7.com/envivo.php

  14. Having an inside cauldron would be reasonable if the main stadium was totally indoor like in Vancouver, but after London commited and defended their idea of not having the flame as a "touristic attraction" with an open stadium ot would be very nonsense to repeat the same error and defending it.
  15. Central American Games' closing ceremony tonight.

      didn't they finish last week

    2. Mau2010


      No, it was a two week event.

  16. If they choose to place the cauldron inside the stadium like London they would be repeating the same formula as they did in 2007 PanAms, nothing new.
  17. Watch the Central American Games Opening Ceremony live here NOW

  18. Bowling without a doubt! And maybe roller skating.
  19. Can't wait for the CA Games opening ceremony tonight! :D

  20. I'm back! But sad about the loss of FIFA Women's U17 of course.

      But isn;t 3 stadiums already built? You only needed one more.

    3. Mau2010


      The plan was to build two more stadiums in Jaco and Liberia, but they couldn't even have a render in these years so it killed the venue.

    4. intoronto


      I think 3 venues is fine.

  21. I got my doubts about this. -------------- Artificial cloud designed to offer shade at Qatar's 2022 World Cup By Douglas Stanglin, USA TODAY 26 Comments 7 Recommend A design of an artificial cloud. CAPTION The Peninsula A Qatar University department has designed an artificial cloud it says could hover during the World Cup soccer tournament in 2022 to cool off stadiums from the desert country's blistering summer sun, The Peninsula reports. See a sketch of the planned cloud here. Qatar was the surprise winner in its bid for the tournament, which left some non-Mideast countries wondering how teams will cope with summer temperatures that can soar to about 104 F. Saud Abdul Ghani, head of the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering department, is quoted as saying his group would collaborate with the Qatar Science and Technology Park to create a working model at a cost of about $500,000. The "cloud," filled with helium and built of light carbon material, would use four solar-powered (of course!) engines for maneuvering between the stadium and the sun to provide shade. Commercial models, Ghani said, could be used at beaches and car parks, perhaps even fetched by mobile phones.

  22. ¡¡¡Vamos Costa Rica, Chile y Perú por las sedes de los mundiales femenino sub17, sub17 y sub 20 masculinos!!!

    1. KRATK


      para ser honesto, preferiría que no le dieran el mundial a Chile con la corrupta nueva dirigencia que asumió. sería una vergüenza a nivel mundial. Suerte a Costa Rica!

  23. Let's go Costa Rica, Chile and Peru for the FIFA Women's U17, Men's U17 and Men's U20 World Cups!

  24. Congrats Rio, you put the Olympic logo tendency back on track. And happy new year to everyone!
