  1. I'm just stirring. As GBR is made up of England, Wales and Scotland, I was saying if Australia and New Zealand teamed up they would dominate as they have two very good squads. I'm more just poking fun at the British is all for having three countries to pick talent from. It wasn't a literal suggestion. I have a question for you; why do you write 'why' as 'Y'? Is it really that much more efficient for you to type?
  2. ROWING Link to PDF of qualified boats for London 2012. http://www.worldrowing.com/uploads/pdfs/2012_Olympic_Qualification_by_Event_(at_Bled_2011_WCH).pdf Great Britain qualified 13 of 14 boats New Zealand - 11/14 Germany - 11/14 Australia - 10/14 USA - 8/14 China - 8/14 Canada - 7/14 Italy - 6/14 Really looking forward to the Olympic Regatta. If Australia teamed up with New Zealand as 'Oceania', they would clean up. But unlike GBR, we like to go it alone with separate talent pools

  4. I would prefer Istanbul too. Really like the swimming venue. Golden Horn doesn't seem like it would be suitable for rowing. Do you have another venue Olimpik?
  5. Ease up guys, I think Jim20329u34233248 knows what is right more than the IOC and ROCOG... DUH!!
  6. I think the fact that the IOC have given it's approval for it to be the olympic stadium sort of defeats your argument.
  7. But where am I going to get all the useless venue lists for olympic games that will never ever be hosted in that country?
  8. Whilst this is true, it highlights very much how incapable Delhi is. There should not be any questioning the situation. These games need to be cancelled for the health and safety of a lot of people. Why can't the CGF accept this... it is lunacy. Something bad, real bad is going to happen, and when it does, and it will, there are going to be a lot of people in the firing line, and not just Delhi officials...
  9. CWG: Bridge collapses near JLN stadium, 23 injured Updated on Tuesday, September 21, 2010, 17:12 Tags: Delhi, CWG, foot-over bridge, collapses, JLN stadium Share Buzz up! TRANSLATE INTO: Powered by Translate Zeenews Bureau New Delhi: In yet another setback to the preparations for the Commonwealth Games, major part of an under-construction foot-over bridge near the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium collapsed on Tuesday afternoon. As per initial reports, the incident happened at around 3 pm today when a hanging-type foot-over bridge that was being constructed near the stadium collapsed all of sudden. Amid contradictory reports about the number of injured, Deputy Commissioner of Police HGS Dhaliwal confirmed that 23 labourers working at the site were injured in the incident out which five are said to be critical and have been admitted to the AIIMS Trauma Centre, while four others have been rushed to the Safdarjung Hospital. PWD officials and Delhi chief secretary Rakesh Mehta claimed that only two workers were injured in the incident. As per PWD principal engineer AK Sinha, the bridge was meant to be used by visitors during the commonwealth Games and was being erected using special technology. “It works using a system of pins attached the structure and it seems one of the pin(s) snapped due to the rest of the bridge,” he said. Fire brigade teams, along with automated cranes, have also reached the spot are working towards removing the debris from the site. The incident is likely to cause much embarrassment to the Delhi government, which is under pressure to complete the remaining construction work for the upcoming CWG events. The opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games, the biggest sporting event being hosted by India since the 1982 Asiad Games, will be held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium Oct 3. The stadium, the showpiece of the event, will also host the closing ceremony. This games and this country are an absolute joke and embarrassment. Good luck trying to host any sporting event of significance in the future. They can't even host their own cricket event (20/20)
  10. I didn't ask you that question ScotGuy, 4seasonscentre did.... look at your quote. But thanks for the info...
  11. Maybe they could include Wet'n'Wild rides in the decathlon... I mean if Netball can get a gig....
  12. If Canada made a bid, would that cause USOC to bid to, knowing that if Canada wins, it would further delay the US of hosting a SGs for another few cycles...
  13. Beijing had an awesome public transport system. Subway etc But there buses were easy to understand to, in the sense that to get to the rowing I just had to hop on the lime green bus at the interchange...
  14. I can definitely understand that perception. I just love the weather and hinterland area for living. The cbd itself is a little poxy in some aspects. Each to their own though. Given another 20 years of growth, it will be far more developed and less poxy I think.
