  1. Aww... How about 1914 in Paris Congress of the Olympic Movement? Designed by Pierre de Coubertin in 1913.
  2. 1920 in Antwerp, Belgium, according to Wikipedia. Apparently the original flag disappeared and was replaced in Paris 1924, and then replaced again in Seoul 1988 by a new flag.
  3. Wow, that's a much better picture! CTV also has a few other photos: http://www.ctvbc.ctv.ca/gallery/html/bc_terryfox_20110916/photo_0.html
  4. Hmm... I'm surprised Tokyo decided to bid for 2020. I'd have thought their chance of winning the bid would be pretty low, after PC 2018 win. BUT I also think their chance of winning is not zero; it is low, but not zero. It'll depend on how they play the game and also whether they can lobby well and maintain a strong sports diplomacy. The fact that there's been no back-to-back Asian Olympic games could potentially be used for the bid... also, they might be able to use this to their advantage and convince IOC members that a Tokyo 2020 win could potentially show that IOC is 'fair' and gives unconditional chances to all bidding cities regardless of previous bids. Anyway, having said all that, I still think chances of Tokyo win is pretty low. It'll be more likely for a European or an American city to win the summer games!
  5. Yeah, I suppose we Canadians could've adopted a thing or two from the British/European soccer hooligan experiences... Anyway, I hope the VPD round up everyone involved in the riots and jail them... actually, that means my tax money will be feeding those idiots while they're in jail. Just fine them... fine them lots.
  6. Ugh... I'm so ashamed. I was also pretty darn upset after yesterday's games, but going around and destroying your own city is just stupid. I hope the hooligans are punished accordingly with some jail time and heavy fines! Why should tax payers have to clean up the mess made by a select few brainless idiots?
  7. Kinda disappointed those animals don't really represent Russia... or at least not to the foreigners' eyes. But then I'm not sure what animals really would represent Russia other than brown bears...
  8. I agree with Kenadian. From what I hear and have seen, the opening ceremony book isn't really good. I didn't get a chance to have a look at the closing ceremony book though! I might have to check it out.
