    Egypt Targets Bid For 2032 Olympic Games

    https://medalzone.wordpress.com/2018/07/14/belgian-bronze-and-the-olympic-week-that-was-july-14/ I took a couple minutes to give my own perspective of an Olympic Games in Egypt, as well as what it could include!

    Russia 2018

    Does the success of Russia 2018 negate the problems from Sochi 2014?? Brazil 2014 and the Rio Olympics had similar problems in organization. I wouldn't even know Russia's World Cup and Winter Olympics were even held in the same country, given the contrast of the two.
  4. Speaking of New Delhi 2010, how did it compare to Kuala Lumpur 1998?
  5. I did a full blog from my own perspective. It was sometimes tough to catch here in the States, given that it was largely untelivised. https://medalzone.wordpress.com/2018/04/16/well-done-gold-coast-a-recap-of-the-2018-commonwealth-games/

    Gold Coast 2018

    OK, as a sports fan the United States, I am eagerly anticipating the Commonwealth games for the first time… Any good stories I can expect??
  7. Back in Sochi, Russia was criticized for supporting the regime on Syria- and rightfully so. That said, they didn’t just bring out the red carpet for them, Assad’s sister, or allow players onto their hockey team.
  8. I’m starting to think the YOG’s from Innsbruck 2012 and Lillehammer 2016 have been our only successful Winter Games since Vancouver.

    PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Media Updates

    So far, NBC has shown to be well-adjusted in its Olympic coverage. That said, tonight seemed to be a step back. I long wanted to see them donmore live coverage, but it seemed to drag. Its not so much showing the competition. They did great going live with Chloe Kim and Ted Ligety, but they should’ve found something else to show during a ski slope delay, or long run of unfamiliar athletes. I long advocated for the latter, but I’m not so sure it translated well on prime time network TV.
  10. Which was tougher on the Olympic movement as a whole? Sochi or Rio?

    Weather Delays... again

    I think Nagano has a full cancellation in one of its events. I could be wrong.
  12. Another postponement... Are we actually going to see skiing events after the closing ceremonies, or even worse get scratched?? These delays are getting annoying!

    No, I’m not blogging from South Korea… I’m doing is safely in the comfort of my own home in the States. I’ve always wanted to do something like this, so I had time this evening to give it a try. medalzone.wordpress.com
