  1. Gymnastics was VERY Bias. I was fine with the Commentary Teams in 84 and 88 but when 92 and 96 came around, I got really annoyed. The Team I believe was Tim Daggett, Elfi Schlegal & John Tesh. I can't believe how biased they were constantly talking about how much chances the US have and what not...Like, There are other Gymnasts from other Nations that people want to know of too. I still don't get why Cathy Johnson and Bart Conner were not brought it, I never heard bias commentary from either of them.

  2. My Favourites -

    1976 - Nadia Comaneci winning the All-Around and earning the 1st ever 'Perfect 10'

    1984 - Mary Lou Retton winning the All-Around over the Romanian Favourite Ecaterina Szabo.

    1992 - Nigerian Women's 4x100 Team capturing the Bronze Medal in a rather tight Race. I loved how happy they were and celebrating when they found out they won the Bronze Medal, Really felt touched by it.

    1996 - USA Women's Gymnastics Team fighting off Russia and Romania to win the Gold Medal in the Team Event, The Crowd in the Georgia Dome went nuts when Kerri Strug stuck her 2nd Vault with an injured knee. Another one of my favourites was when Nigeria's Chioma Ajunwa won Nigeria's 1st Gold Medal in the Women's Long Jump Event.

    2000 - Romania winning Gold in both the Team Event and sweeping the Medals Podium in the All-Around Finals with Andreea Raducan, Simona Amanar & Maria Olaru winning Gold, Silver & Bronze. .

    2012 - USA Winning Team & All-Around Gold with Gabby Douglas.

  3. ^^I had a look, And I'm thinking - 'Is it just me or are most Main Stadium Renders in Bid Books following the same format/design?' I've seen their Stadium Design in many other Books too...

    Would've loved to seen Czechoslovakia host the Games...They did host a few events for the Alternate Games held in 1984. I remember Artistic Gymnastics being held at the Winter Stadium in Olomouc.

    Anyways, I've checked on AbeBooks UK and found 4 Amsterdam Bid Books, The lowest is going for £15.17 with £6.00 Shipping! Not much detail about the condition so maybe that's why there's a low price...

  4. Hi

    I found this forum while researching a Brisbane 1992 bid book I have. From the comments I've read on here this may be relatively uncommon? Anyone want to give me a ballpark figure it might sell for please?

    Can't seem to post the pics but I'd say the book is in good condition. The front cover has a couple of indents but it's still pretty clean looking. I can email the pics if anyone would like to look or post them for me please?

    Cheers

    Well, The Brisbane 1992 Bid Book set is pretty rare, Darcy had to go to a Library to view it, I would love to see Pictures of it! I'll PM you my Email :)
