    Calgary 2026

    Also with the new government in BC, I doubt there is any interest in bidding. (they killed Victoria's 2022 CWG bid)

    Calgary 2026

    It was re-purposed, but it can be returned back into the oval without it costing too much.
  6. There are some rumblings FIFA wants a bigger stadium in Toronto for the 2026 World Cup, fwiw. Maybe that can be used as a springboard for the track and field stadium.
  7. Why do we have separate day threads ?Its just the World Cup....

    2026 Commonwealth Games: Where?

  9. Tunisia would have been a good option, but the Israel problem. Botswana has experience hosting the African Youth Games
  10. Apparently all are still be used. Delhi should be the one they choose to go with considering the infrastructure.
  11. Isn't the minimum capacity 60,000?
  12. These were a very good Commonwealth Games. Glasgow 'rescued' them from the disaster Delhi was, and now the Gold Coast has brought it up a notch. Can Birmingham deliver?
  13. Calgary city council is so incompetent. I can say this about any major Canadian city. Idiots.
  14. Looks like squash doubles will win gold too...

    Canada on the Gold Coast

    This team entered with the chance of winning a lot of gold medals. TO add there was 35+ fourth place finishes! Unbelievable. Potential gold medal loses/bad luck here: 1) Damian Warner in the decathlon was leading up until the pole vault (and was expected to win) but he NM the pole vault and thus did not medal 2) Emily Batty had bike problems in the mountain biking event, she was considered the gold medal favourite (fourth in Rio) 3 Benefito was leading in the women's 10m platform and overtaken by an Australian on the last dive (who imo was overscored). 4) Women's 3m springboard synchronized had problems with the weather (causing them to miss 2 dives), they were gold medal faves. 5) The Rhythmic gymnastics team should have won gold. Two gymnasts competed in the all around and had they scored that the day before, Canada would have won gold. 6) 3 Canadian weightlifters came in with the best season performance (Santavy, Beauchmin-Nadeau and Darsigny) and they all won silver. 7) Canada "lost" two gold in artistic gymnastics, as the qualification scores did not match the individual finals scores. 8) Two Canadian female wrestlers fought injured and won silver, had they not been injured its likely they would have won gold. Bad luck/injuries etc. I also do not think being excellent at winter sports has anything to do with this. Own the Podium has two separate systems for the seasons (in terms of funding). I fully expect Canada to return to 3rd overall in Birmingham 2022, because there can't be this amount of bad luck there!
