  1. Hi all, The Olympic World Library has been updated and now includes digital copy of all (it seems) candidature files. For example here is Toronto 1996 Candidature File. You can you the search function to explore the library. Happy reading.

    LA 2028 sponsorships

    According to media, Paris 2024 is targetting figures of EUR 100 millions + for its tier 1 partners. I have no doubt that LA, given the size and strength of the US market and the fact that the LA 28 partners will be able to activate over a longer period than usual, can achieve its funding goals.

    Paris 2024

    Actually Paris Arena 2 has not been scraped: it has been moved to Porte de la Chapelle and will host Badminton. The Olympic Aquatics centre was originally to be a 15,000 seater reduced to 5,000 post-Games (hosting Diving, Swimming as well as Artistic Swimming and Water Polo Finals) with Water Polo Preliminaries to be hosted in a renvated Aquatics Centre in Marville. In the updated plan, the Olympic Aqiatics Centre will have on permanent pool of 5,000 (2,500) post Games hosting preliminary waterpolo, diving and artistic swimming and a temporary 15,000 pool for Swimming and Water Polo finals. The renovated facility in Marville will be used for training.

    Paris 2024

    Calgary did keep the same emblem. Albertville was very slightly re-designed (the final emblem is more stylish than the bid one - flame part slightly redesigned).

    Does The Yog 'lessen' The Olympics?

    Things do not change here.... The budget for organising the YOG will be the responsibility of the YOGOC and the local, regional and national public authorities. The IOC will fund the travel and accommodation arrangements of IOC representatives, NOC athletes and team officials at the village and IF international technical officials. The IOC will fund the production of daily TV highlights produced by Olympic Broadcast Services (OBS). Source: YOG 2016 document

    Celebrate Humanity 2010?

    The IOC did not do Celebrate Humanity for Beijing. They have changed their campaign. In Beijing, it was The Best of Us campaign.

    The point being? Your previous post claimed that "Africans generally consider the olympics and the Commonwealths a White persons set of sports festivals", to which I pointed out that Africa only came up with one credible bid. As usual your post does not address the issue. Plus comparing WC and Olympic Games is dubious: they are absolutely not on the same scale in terms of the pressure they put on a city infrastructure.

    Again, how many decent credible bids from Africa for the Olympics? One (Cape Town 2004).

    Toronto 2015

    Why are you whining like Toronto has already lost? Toronto definitely has a very strong bid and is in good position for winning the 2015 Pan Am. But, like in any race, it's not over until it's over. And you have to realise that: - the best technical bid does not always win - winning a bid involves a combination of several factors (technical, geopolitical, economical...) - "It's our turn" has never been a winning approach Website is not very important for bidding city (especially in Pan Am Games). There is no such requirement as releasing a venue plan before the bid book.

    And JJ has brilliantly demonstrated how well connected he is during the race for the 2014 CWG. He is the mastermind behind the plan than delivered Abuja a brilliant victory! LOL...

    Ceremonies On Youtube

    The only thing you are missing on TV is the "feel": the drums during Athens Opening opening sequence were just incredibly powerful inside the stadium!

    Mixing up various topics without addressing the actual facts. Typical you. As mentioned several times before Games Overlay is much more than surfacing a track: it's about facilities needed for the media, temporary lightning and sound equipment, power supply if so needed, security equipment, temporary seating facilities in exhibition halls, conducting needed security studies for certification for temporary or modified venues and so on... It doesn't require a huge amount of time but certainly not two days. Keep reading, you have so much to learn.

    Typical lie. I have never said it couldn't be done as I have never said they could be no compromise on an Overlay for the Games. What I said, and you know it, is that your claim that "Overlay could go through the window" was preposterous. You have since then modified your claim, explaining that what you meant by "Overlay could go through the window" is that it could be reduced, mentioning specifically the look of the Games part. With that I agree. So please, keep embarrassing yourself put don't try to imply I have said things that I didn't say.

    And like I said, you don't know what you are talking about: Games Overlays is everything needed to turn any venue in operational mode. YOU CANNOT STAGE AN EVENT WITHOUT OVERLAYS. But you have never attended a sports events....

    Even if I do agree that the media coverage was unfair to Atlanta which, all in all, were good Games, ACOG is at least partly to blame: they had announced for months the "Party of Century", flawless organisation, perfect security... A more humble approach (that has been adopted by SOCOG, SLOC and LOCOG among others) wouldn't have hurt.

    Look Of The Games

    I have to say that at the moment, I agree with Rei. Vancouver is very good: I love it. Howevere I really loved the warm colours that Torino used (mainly indoors and within Torino). To be to be honest, I was sceptical about Torino look of the Games until I saw it in Torino during the Games themselves: it worked beautifully. So in order to have a honest appraisal of Vancouver Games, I'll have to wait and see til the Games themselves. Anyhow, it's nive to have these rings at the airport. Having a good look at the airport is crucial as it is the Gateway to the Games for most people.

    I was the one asking the question, not Mo so your post is once again completely irrelevant.

    Forgive me for enjoying proving him wrong. I just want to be sure that no one will ever give any credit to the trash he posts here.

    25 lines without answering the questions but spinning your way out but throwing in Rio in a discussion about Commonwealth. Nice job JJ.
