  1. From our isolated continent, it seems the UK is even on the 2nd lap already…
  2. No Union flags necessary, the St George’s cross one will be sufficient by then! Anyway, CWG or the European Champs like in 2018 might be the right size for Glasgow, but an Olympics would certainly be too much to handle IMHO.
  3. Australia did not do anything with Sweden. The IOC had to separate equestrian events when it turned out horse quarantine rules for Australia back then would make it impossible to do these events there. That was not a voluntary choice and if more IOC members had been aware of it before giving Melbourne a one-vote advantage over Buenos Aires…well, who knows?
  4. Her history of mental health issues is well known, yet you chose to call her a twat as if she had done all this deliberately to become even more iconic. Voting Biden doesn’t make you a good person per se.
  5. You know that Scotland has about half the population of Greece/Hungary, right? Besides, I believe in Scottish independence when I see it, though Boris & The Brexiteers are doing a great job promoting it.
  6. They can NOT introduce anything at will. The core sports (most, including handball) remain, the rest is up to IOC decisions and their approval of proposals by the host. There’s still a limit in number of events and a certain degree of universality, i.e. practicing of that sport on a high level in many countries/continents still factors in. That said, I’d love to see Lacrosse added.
  7. Universiade cannot be compared to YOG. Age range there is just like in the Olympics basically.
  8. I never said the IOC wouldn’t go for Russia, but they really shouldn’t. Anyway, I doubt they’ll be busy locking 2036 in as early as they did 2032. Many things can happen in the next 5-7 years before this becomes concrete.
  9. As is Karate again in Paris, but we’ll get breakdancing instead… Wasn’t impressed by skateboarding, seemed very unspectacular and hard to see the nuances. Haven’t seen much of surfing, but it also felt a bit underwhelming to me.
  10. Sorry, now with link: https://www.gamesbids.com/forums/topic/29233-not-sarajevo-but-ljubljana/
  11. You mean… Not Sarajevo but Ljubljana?
  12. Yeah, the dream of many an official! Leave the pesky audience out, just make it look good on TV. Who needs ticket sales, maybe with new technologies you can make more sponsoring money by selling virtual tickets to exclusive Zoom crowds even who are then also projected into the TV broadcast making venues look full. (yes, this is sarcasm, just to be clear)
  13. Sorry folks, but the glitzy pictures and dramatic stories the Olympics are always producing might still draw audiences (especially when nightlife is non existing and not much else to do), but people can still at the same time ask the question whether it all, the costs, the health risks, etc, is really worth it. I heard a comment that Japanese people - now that the athletes are there despite all protesting - want to make it a good experience as they are the least to blame. But of course they are still angry at Bach, Suga, etc. The IOC has no real answer or even interest to convince people of its product and the Japanese government just hopes and prays basically.
  14. Nobody in the IOC should touch Russia even with a bargepole unless there are very significant changes to the current situation (and the doping issue would even be one of the lesser worries).
  15. Not that hard when apart from Istanbul in all these years no „risky“ candidate was on the ballot.
