  1. Do you see it as the Olympic in the future will be spread out on a whole country, like the football world cup and other events? Or will et only be for a few sports that can fit in, in other towns/places.
  2. We don´t have or are expected to have an Athletics stadium in Copenhagen. Therefor i dont believe in a European games i Copenhagen, unfortunately. IF we should build a big athletic stadium, temporary or permanent, i think it would demand to be for an Olympic games, and it doesn´t seem to be anyone else but me who believe that could work out.
  3. Im very very proud and surprised that it has succeded to win that Tour de France in 2021 will start in Copenhagen Denmark and continue 2 more days in Denmark before travelling to France. I know it is not much about the Olympics but it is yet another big thumps up for Denmark in organisation for big sports events, since this is succeded. Im looking very very much forward to 2. 3. and 4. of july 2021!
  4. Sorry wrong forum. Are there someone who can move it over to the right one (Not Olympic)
  5. Hello All Denmark has announced that they will go for the UEFA Womens European Championschips in 2025. I was wondering, if anyone here know other countries that are thinking of that? What are the competition And next, does UEFA has any stadium demands for a women championschip are? I have tried to google both, with no luck so fare.
  6. I believe more in the European Sports Championship, because athletic and swimming are a part of that....
  7. Hello all What a wonderful games! If we look at the sports competition and medals. For my point I am VERY surprised about how good Denmark managed this year! We god 15 medals!!!! The highest since London 1948!!! And in London 2012, we got 9, and that was also the highest since 1948!!!! And we had different athletes that we had high hopes for, which disappointed. So that we still got 15 medals total, is almost unbelievable! And who can forget Pernille Blume face when she won the 50 m swimming! That and the handball gold is the biggest moment for me, but the road cycling was also very dramatic sport! And silver for Denmark... But with only 5½ million people in Denmark, and still get 15 medals is hard to understand! Besides our selve, I´m surprised by New Zealand, they are only 4,5 million, and got a total of 18 medals! Very very impressive! So what country are you surprised about? positive or negative? Kindly regards Hans from Denmark
  8. I think I have mentioned it before. There are many new sports that well could be in the Olympics (Bowling, Billard, Snooker, Squash, beachhandball, beachsoccer etc.. But it is getting to big for most cities. Get the games to be in 2 cities. And let them bid together. Lets have perhaps a total of 12-13.000 athletes, but with 6-7.000 in each city. But it should not be in the same time! The media cant handle so much more things at once. So let it be 2 weeks in late may/early june, and 2 weeks late july/early august. Then make it up to those 2 cities in there joint bid to split the sports between them. Let´s say that Hamburg and Budapest for an excample went together. Then every 4. years it wouldn´t be the same sports at the early or late games. But the international calendar can be placed 7 years before when the 2 host are selected, and the different sports are there placed. The media has time to recover between the two summer games etc. So in 2028 we could have Athletic and basketball, and gymnastics in the same city, but perhaps in 2032, basketball is not in the same city as athletic. It should be completely up to the 2 bid cities in there joined bid to decide where what is, to insure use of existing venues and local interest in the sports. And who says it should be in the same continent? It could also be Denmark and Copenhagen and Brisbane in Australia. But I believe it would reduce costs, and let more sports get in to the Olympic zone... And i actually don´t think it will loose the charm so much. Because it will still be big for each city respectively. And it would still be an Olympic medals for the athletes, and the medaltable is of course a joint one for both cities so it is possible to compare each Olympic year. It would mean lower venue cost for each city. Need for smaller Olympic village and probably more likely to get public backing in the city and country, because it would be smaller. But unfortunately I don´t decide :) Regards Hans from Denmark
  9. That part surprised me too... But i don´t know if it´s a first time, or i just have bad memory
  10. Hello all I have a small question for the Olympic golf tournament. Normally in golf there are only playoff about the winner... And if 2 or more are tied, then there will be playoff for the victory. But at the Olympics there of course also are silver and bronze... Will there be playoff for that also? even if number 1 is found already? or will there be 2 silver medals for example?
  11. Regarding Denmark I can add, that Golf is going on TV2 Zulu, for full (perhaps if interesting enough (Danish in top, it will also be on the main TV2) and sailing will every day have place in TV2 Charlie... And online TV2 will have furthermore a 100% basket channel and a 100% Horsing channel
  12. What is the reason for NBC not to show it live, but with a one hour delay???? I really don´t understand why... Isn´t the Olympic big enough???
  13. What about team sports? Is it possible that other countries will get a late invitation to take Russias place ind handball, volleyball etc? In handball the international handball federation has before shown that they don´t care about who is the natural country to take a place, when Germany get invited for a few years ago, even they wasn´t in competition with that team who got expelled (cant remember the details). It was then clearly for marketing reasons. I think of course that is a stupid way to go, but if Russia will get banned here, who will take their place in womens handball? Denmark won gold in 96, 00 and 04, but unfortunately missed qualification Could the international handball federation choose to take us in? Or will the IOC refuse that. We did not play Russia directly in the qualification, but some countries qualified in the World Cup, and other in direct qualification matches later on. So how do they choose... Will we have to wait and see. Perhaps the teamsport will be allowed under the IOC flag?
  14. Hello Will all courts in badminton, tabletennis and tennis be tv-covered so the networks has free choise? Or is it only one og two courts in each sport that are live covered for tv?
  15. Perhaps Caroline Wozniacki will not carry the Danish flag. The international tennis federation has to give a wild card before she gets permission to compete at the Olympics. The reason is that they have a rule that she has to be in 2 Fed Cup matches within the last 4 years. She has only participated in 1! She would have been in back in april, but was injured. So here in Denmark we hope for Wild Card, but nothing is sure!
  16. I have discovered some news for me, and I can´t see it has been debated inhere anywhere. But the new "European sports championschip" which will be held for the first time in 2018 in Glasgow and Berlin. Read about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Sports_Championships I love the idea about it, and have read som more about it on "insidethegames.com". In my opinion it of course would have been better that those big sports, swimming, athletics, rowing etc. would have joint the European games. Now it seems like we have 2 competitors. As far as I understand, these sports championships will allow multiple cities to join together, to reduce spending on new venues etc. I know it is a new concept, but does anyone know if there are plans to expand the event with other sports for 2022? It could be beachvolley, tabletennis, badminton for example? Or is it expected not to expand more because it wont want to be to big? I don´t think it should get every Olympics sports on, and i also don´t think any of the big ball sport (handball, volleyball, basket etc) should be a part of it. But those 3 mentioned first is good examples in my opinion, perhaps also shooting and archery. I thought Copenhagen could bid with Gothenburg for 2022. They have the athletics stadium, and we have the Velodrome and have succes with short track swimming championships and others. But I can see that Sweden is considering to bid with Gothenburg and Malmo... I would love for Copenhagen to join that bid! And then especially if we got 2-4 more sports added.. Well just some thoughts from me, and hope someone knows something for the future I have not founded on google yet. Regards Hans from Denmark
  17. Hi Does anyone know why badminton at Rio is moved a week forward? As long as I can remember it has been starting at the first day, but in Rio it first start at thursday the 11. I can see in the schedule for Tokyo it is back to start on day 1... Personally i love it! Because i normally miss Danish action in week 2, and that i get more off now...
  18. Are the schedule for handball ready now the groups are drawn? and times? Or is it up for negotiation with the media first?
  19. I have been searching for ínformation when the drawing for the team competition are. But so fare with no luck. I see the basket tournament have been drawn now. Does anyone know when the others are drawn? In specific handball and football has my interest? Regards Hans from Denmark
  20. There are no reason to make 3 stadiums in Norway bigger than 30.000. Therefor in my opinion it makes sense to take in one stadium in Finland instead. The list of stadiums in Sweden: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_football_stadiums_in_Sweden And there is missing Nya Ullevi, it is here: https://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ullevi I predict Malmø expanden to 30-35.000 and then use the others around how they are (Friends, Tele 2 and Nya Ullevi. It would then give 4 in Sweden List for Denmark: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_football_stadiums_in_Denmark I predict that Parken would expand to close to 50.000 (perhaps temporarily) Brøndby Stadium will be expanded for 35.000 and Ceres park (in Århus) would be 30-35.000, probably also temp.. That gives 3 in Denmark. No other stadium would make sense to build so much bigger then they are. The list in Norway: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_football_stadiums_in_Norway I here predict Ullavaal to be expanded to around 40-45.000, and Lerkendal to 30-35.000. That gives 2 in Norway And in Finland there are only one close to use: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_football_stadiums_in_Finland And it has about 40.000 and has been used for World Championschip in Athletic. That gives a total of 10 stadiums, and no completely new and totally stupid big venues in "small" cities. Just the biggest a bit bigger. But it of course depends on how easy they respectively are to expand. That was my input for a Nordic Euro champions chip
  21. Thanks for the information. Hmm it will off course need som renovation, and expansions. But I don´t see it as impossible. I see 4 stadiums in Sweeden, 3 in Denmark, 2 in Norway and 1 in Finland. But lets see, if it end up with a bid at all.
  22. Thanks to Rob for showing me this thread. I also thought it was here somewhere, but don´t know how it was gone for me... Sorry for the new thread. I post here the same now: ........... What do the crowd in here think of, that the Danish federation has opened up for a joined Nordic bid. Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland for either 2024 or 2028? It just came out last week. And they shall talk together next month. What do you think? And a question from me. What are the minimum stadium capacity for a Euro match? Regards Hans from Denmark
  23. Are there still no news at all regarding European Games 2019? Im starting to believe either that it will return to Baku, or that it will be cancelled
  24. Why so focused on one Olympic stadium... It sounds like you think its about one stadium. What about, Basket, gymnastic, swimming, Volley, track cycling, etc etc etc
  25. Yes if it is in the same time. Therefor i see it as a good opportunity to split it to 2 cities, with perhaps 6 weeks as minimum a part. Yes it will not be completely the same, but changes must happen. And this is for the Summer Olympics. As for Winter Im not quite sure what to do
