  1. As mentioned, the venue for these World Championships (25m) this December is the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre, near the Formula 1 racetrack at Albert Park. Here’s what the venue looks like in 50m competition mode with this flashback of Leisal Jones’ Gold Medal Swim in the 200m breastroke at the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games. MSAC Venue Location at Albert Park, Melbourne:
  2. Sure love to see the Aussies in action at these World Championships (25m) this December in Melbourne. Tonight Ariane Titmus just broke Kate Ledecky’s 400m Freestyle World Record - what a champion! This followed Zac Stubblety-Cooke’s smashing the World Record in the 200m Breatstroke earlier in the week:
  3. 2030 Winter Games Host Election Timeline So with this announcement by the IOC, the timeline to the 2030 Host Election can be expected to be as follows, based on the 2032 timeline: Dec 2022 - IOC Executive Board Meeting between now and December, the IOC Future Host Commission will continue dialogue with the four candidates: Sapporo, Salt Lake City, Vancouver and Barcelona-Pyranees the IOC Future Host Commission for the Olympic Winter Games will prepare recommendations to the IOC Executive Board on which candidate or candidates should be elevated to the Targeted Dialogue phase if the IOC Executive Board accepts the recommendations, it will then hold a media conference to announce the elevated candidate/s to Targeted Dialogue. Dec-Feb/Mar 2023 (approx.) the IOC Future Host Commission for the Olympic Winter Games commences Targeted Dialogue with the elevated candidate/s. the Commission can be expected to prepare a Feasibility Assessment, send the Future Host Questionnaire Winter Olympic Games to each elevated candiate/s, receive/prepare the IOC Future Host Questionnaire Response, and finally prepare the Report of the Future Host Commission for the Winter Olympic Games to the IOC Executive Board - Targeted Dialogue (Candidate’s name) 2030” the IOC Executive Board can be expected to accept the Commission’s recommendation/s and then the IOC will prepare for a Host Election to occur at the next IOC Session. a media conference at this point can also be expected May 2023 at the 140th IOC Session in Mumbai, India, the 2030 Host Election is expected to occur after the candidate presentation/s and a Q&A session. Then comes the winner announcement, signing of the Host Contract and a media conference. it’s entirely possible also for an election to also occur for the 2034 Winter Games, but that remains to be seen whether a double-awarding occurs or not.

  5. With the change of government in the Australian national election overnight, certain positions announced by the outgoing government on the Brisbane 2032 Organising Committee may be about to change. Prime Minister-elect Anthony Albanese’s party has previously announced they would put forward their own nominations if it won government.
  6. This has nothing to do with Brisbane whatsoever but about New Norm and the 2030 host selection process. It has everything to do with the first election of an Olympic host under the New Norm and the same people people in these threads wheeling out their evidence-free tired old theories of how the 2032 host came to be the 2032 host, from rusted-on old bidding system lovers. Then trying to somehow transpose that bs over on to the 2030 process. Rather than accepting that the entire process has changed, and unerstanding this is the New Norm, trying time and time again over the last year cooking up conspiracy theories. What again sparked this entire current back-and-forth was yet another conspiracy theory, this time from Rols: “we all know” … (that indicates straight up a lack of confidence in what he is about to say by having to pad his theory from the outset with a claim of ‘we all know’ rather than leading off with what he himself strongly believes in: ‘I believe’ … they could be ready tomorrow if Bach or Coates NOCs had a bid in that needed to be fast-tracked.” So here we have it. Another New Norm conspiracy theory that Bach and Coates alone can fast-track a result tomorrow for the 2030 host if one of them had a candidature going for the 2030 Games. That is nonsense and I immediately called it out for what it was: bs.
  7. In the New Norm era, selecteding a host not in calendar order may be something that you personally think is weird, but that is irrelevant. What you call “fast tracking” is not fast tracking at all. Candidates enter continuous dialogue at any time and the IOC will, when a candidature has ticked all the boxes can be elevated at any time, pandemic or no pandemic.
  8. Pyrenees-Barcelona- etc is also in continuous dialogue and technically possible to be elevated, but as many have said in the other threads, highly unlikely given their big problems
  9. December, 2022 IOC Executive Board Meeting As I said, I’m sure there are many who are looking forward to the outcome of this December’s IOC Executive Board meeting to see who of Sapporo, Salt Lake City or Vancouver are elevated to Targeted Dialogue (and then on to the final Host Vote in May 2023).
  10. Excellent intel. There we go, done and dusted. I’d love to go and see another world swimming champs in Melbourne this year after Perth 91 and 98
  11. Baron, I recommend you relax, take a breath ans stop with the abusive language. The Paris 2024 organisers and the IOC and all the other stakeholders involved will get this done.
  12. Out of you two, Bollock and Lollock above, at least the Ignore Button can lock at least one of you out. Thank goodness for that.
