  1. Love it, and i love the fact that there is just one Logo for both Games. I always wondered why there is a need for different ones. Love the Gold/Black/white Art-Deco look and feel of the whole design. Well done Paris :)
  2. Erzurum is out, i guess the IOC was afraid it could be the only City to go the whole Distance. IOC probably prefer to beg SLC to step in, instead of going to Turkey. Calgary public Poll will be crucial for IOC, since i expect Stockholm and Italy to leave the race before a IOC voting session.
  3. using Schönau and Inzell is insane - yet the only option for graz. But it´s a really weak link in her bid.
  4. is this the official Logo for 2022?
  5. China News 中国新闻网 @Echinanews Beijing released the construction plan for Winter Olympics venues and facilities on Thursday. Pictures show artist rendering of the National Winter Games Training Stadium, the Big Air and the National Sliding Centre.
  6. you never know with this international federation the German Bid could also has some flaws, actually part of the UEFA requirements are against German laws. (like the tax exemption) While someone like Erdogan can fulfill all the wishes of the UEFA.
  7. i guess the IOC realise that YOG is something not many countries/cities are willing to bid for and so they try to sell this "bad product" to Africa and label it as a chance for future big olympics
  8. are you guys really surprised? everyone knew this even before they awarded the Games to PC look at all the events they hosted ahead of the games Like the biathlon worlds in 2009 - but yet the International federations and IOC pushed for this games and just get what they asked for. South Koreans are just into shortTrack, speedskating and figure skating
  9. like i said, Yuna Kim was fighting the tears, maybe because she knew this mechanical thing gonna ruin her big moment. 30 rings for 30 years since Seoul - what a lame and constructed story behind this ugly thing to light the flame a classical way of lighting the flame would have been much better then this ugly mechanical phallus and the lame story behind. and a classical way would have made the whole moment much more emotional, for Yuna Kim and for the viewers on TV.
  10. i agree, i alxo really disliked the big amount of prerecorded videos. and then lighting the flame could have been a really emotional moment IMO, Yuna Kim was fighting her tears and then the moment was destoyed by this flame-phallus. why not lifting her up and lighting the flame in a classical way ?
  11. No one said there will be/should be a double without suitable Bids. But the IOC should be aware that it will be tough to get those Bids from Europe in the near future. European Cities are willing, but the citizens are not. Oslo and Munich 2022, Innsbruck 2026, and most likely Sion 2026 soon too. Sochi ruined a lot for the IOC in Europe, cause whenever and wherever in Europe a City face a Olympic Referendum the Sochi Prize Tags will be on the table and will influence the people. (there are other negative influences too, but Sochi prize tag was for sure the killer for Munich 2022)
  12. well, if Sion and Stockholm drops out for 2026 then it would mean no european citiy made it to the actual Bidding process 2 circles in a row (2022 and 2026) wouldn´t it be a bit naive from IOC to think Europe will rise like a Phoenix for 2030? So then they should take what they get (maybe Canada and USOC-Bid) and don´t care about pissing off Europe, cause they been pissed off already with the Sochi/PC Games
  13. another Dillema for the IOC could also be 3 strong Candidates (Calgary. Sion, Stockholm). Would they do a double and piss off one of the Countries/Cities for the Future? also it would be risky not to do a double, cause you never know if those cities are willing to bid again, or win a public poll again to be able to bid again But if i should make a prediction i would predict Sion and Stockholm to drop out and we get a double with Calgary 2026 and USOC 2030.
  14. i´m a bit underwhelmed , and i like the Paralympics Logo more
