  1. .....yes, well.......ok then, it's settled........they don't know what their position is and cannot take a side until consulting with the USOPC to decide what message they can reveal about what they believe in. Not mad at them........perfectly expected.
  2. ......id agree with that. The USOC and IOC don't really have any discretion when it comes to self preservation
  3. ...it translates to "mulling" a boycott because when asked before they said they were not considering it.........not they say a decision has not been made........that is a change in posture. p.s. i think ted cruz is actually pretty pro-texas
  4. ...I don't think Athletes, volunteers or sports journalist are essential to anything.
  5. hard to choose but i voted for E this round........bit of a sucker for monochromatic logo and rings. good luck to all!
  6. Congratulation @Jon Will Chambers......fantastic looking logo, and all the cool stuff was awesome to see. I loved the "delegation entry point"! so cool looking
  7. Here's a little composition study playing around with logo D and landmarks that inspired the logo design.....could be a poster or maybe the start of a flexible graphic language for a bid book?
  8. ...ok here's one for Milan-Cortina! I think i will have a Brisbane too.........
  9. Hi Olympian1010.....you should be able to just right click on the image in Imgur and select "copy image"....them right click and paste in the body of your message here. Maybe you already tried that, but it should work. good luck!
  10. Los Angeles...the unorthodox achievement.
  11. Buenos Aires...the unsung hero.
  12. I...I...I...just don't know what I'm feeling about this. it's way better than that wig head for Paris but man, it's all over the place. I agree most with the person who mentioned that the 3 bold fonts in the L, 2, and 8, are all so different but heavy. Don't mind the heavy as much as the different. I saw the 8 font used on the website to spell out the names of all the other pending games (and some other stuff too I think). Those names were links to those respective sites instead of using their typical logos as the link.......thought that looked kind cool. I like it but the A is just a rehash of the M from MTV that is a million year old idea now........so not really a groundbreaking idea......I mean it's REALLY the same exact concept. Good thing Billie Eilish and Reese Witherspoon are on board, I just hope they can secure Beyonce or at minimum Blue Ivy before the look of games concept is put to bed.
  13. Russia has no vaccine. Tokyo can be something next year I guess, but it's probably not time to cancel yet..they just don't know yet. It does feel like they are sort of screwed no matter what........cant imagine the disappointment they are dealing with.
  14. Almaty looked like the right choice all along to me.......but I guess international organizations and the IOC have a very difficult time passing up $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Additionally; it may be a display of privileged and power that we are forced to wedge winter sports at this level into places that it is not a tradition or norm.
  15. ...I don't know what you mean? This was a very good idea (in my mind) but it got little to no traction in that contest.
  16. Should the IOC and TOCOG determine that TOKYO 2020 will proceed as planned there will likely be unprecedented changes to venues, security, travel protocols, medical preparedness, etc.. A more informational “look of games” may be necessary to identify TOKYO 2020. A comprehensive plan may include a main logo that is more connected to these games parameters. I would like to submit a logo design to TOCOG for consideration. This design was originally created for Harbin, China in a past GB logo contest and was rejected by the GB community and thus it is available now. I can be available (remotely) to discuss terms of use with TOCOG. In the unfortunate event that Tokyo 2020 is indeed cancelled I leave open the option to transfer discussions to BOCWOG for use at Beijing 2022.
  17. TOKYO (AP) — Japan will close schools nationwide to help control the spread of the new virus, the government announced Thursday.
  18. Wow this is getting crazy. What happens if the games are cancelled? Assuming (hopefully) the virus gets in control does Tokyo squeeze in a 2021 or 22 Summer games, do they go after LA....or what?
  19. ...congratulations @Sir Rols...that's pretty awesome, I love your lotus logo! All the logos were cool even in a slow year..congrats to all who shared their creative ideas....it's always so amazing to see how each person approaches the brief! I wish everyone visiting would vote but even when it was a busy board sometimes few voters participated, people are just not into ticking that box I guess. Thank you @yoshi for making a cool comp....you made it so fun and I'm happy I got to join in....... CONGRATULATIONS ROLS!!!!!!!!
  20. ....olympic surfing sounds really cool but i probably agree with that.......going to tahiti sounds absolutely insane.....a new sport and lets hold it at the farthest point from the host city just cuz ummmm cuz ya know it won't be a pretentious IOC surf federation holiday in Tahiti cash burn at all.
