  1. About Agenda 2020, going back on what I said before the Agenda didn't really effect this race as much as it will for future ones, like FYI has said. Mostly because the process started before the Monaco Session. The greater interest in 2024 and I suppose when Stockholm said they would join back in if they could both show that the Agenda is starting to take form, but it was just too early here. I'm sure Beijing will put on great games, regardless of what may happen afterwards.

  2. Ugh. Just, ugh.

    I felt asleep and i'm kind of glad so I didn't had to watch this.

    I fell asleep too. I can't say I'm not disappointed, I am. To me this shows that it's true this is the last bid process not under Agenda 2020 entirely, but that very few member made the difference between showing that. Just two members, actually.

    I hope Almaty tries again in the future. Their bid had a lot to offer and a good amount of the IOC saw this as well. I can already see the headlines about Beijing. Noooo....

  3. Evaluation Commission presentation in 2 hours, vote in 3 hours 15 minutes, Announcement in 4 hours 45 minutes.

    VERY! It didn't really say anything. What did Almaty answer with? I missed that one if someone would please summarize what they said for me.

    Prince Albert asked about how Almaty said that only 2 venues needed to be built, but that the presentation mentioned others under construction. The Almaty 2022 President I think responded by saying that of the 4 non-existing venues for Almaty 2022, two of them are being built for the Universiade in 2017, and are at 60-70% completion. The other two are games dependent and are proposed as of now. He was very straight forwards and actually answered the question.
