  1. I know I haven’t been here in a while, I still like to lurk around though! Here’s a quick write-up I did on the 21 things I took away from Tokyo. https://medalzone.wordpress.com/2021/08/09/tokyo-takeaways-21-things-i-learned-from-the-202one-games/

  3. The thirtieth-anniversary of the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul is coming up this week. The Games seem to be one of the most-forgotten, and had their fair share of controversy. Here's a blog I did- recapping ten of the best moments from South Korea. https://medalzone.wordpress.com/2018/09/09/seoul-1988-thirty-years-later/
  4. As much as I enjoyed Jakarta 2018, and am curious about an Olympic bid... I know many people also enjoyed the Rio Pan Am Games in 2007.

Enjoy! https://medalzone.wordpress.com/2018/08/24/2018-asian-games-day-5-the-fountain-of-youth/ https://medalzone.wordpress.com/2018/08/23/2018-asian-games-day-4-flying-the-friendly-skies/ https://medalzone.wordpress.com/2018/08/22/2018-asian-games-day-three-hoop-it-up/
  17. https://medalzone.wordpress.com/2018/08/21/2018-asian-games-day-two-a-golden-farewell/ Here's a write-up I did just a few minutes ago. I lead with Lindswell Kwok going out on top with a gold in Wushu, as well as Indonesia's late 3-1 win over Hong Kong.
  18. There's a full-blog I did (from an American POV) for Jakarta/Palembang. I included the backstory, highlights from the OC, as well as the athletes to watch out for. I sourced GB at one point. Hopefully, I got all my facts correct! https://medalzone.wordpress.com/2018/08/18/the-worlds-biggest-sporting-event-aka-energyofasia/
  19. 8/8/18 marks the ten-year anniversary of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. Despite the post-legacy questions and China’s relationship with the rest of the world, there’s no doubt Beijing had not only the best ceremonies, but also the best athletic competition. I posted this blog with my top ten favorite stories/moments. https://medalzone.wordpress.com/2018/08/08/beijing-2008-a-look-back-ten-years-later/
  20. If I’m blogging the Asiad, what are some backstories (regarding the athletes) I can follow?
  21. Here are a couple of articles I wrote, following the final: Recap of Sunday’s Final: https://medalzone.wordpress.com/2018/07/15/two-for-les-blues/ Top ten games: https://medalzone.wordpress.com/2018/07/15/2018-fifa-world-cup-what-novels-are-made-of/
  22. 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!
  23. 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.
  24. Speaking of New Delhi 2010, how did it compare to Kuala Lumpur 1998?
  25. 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/
