  1. Hello everyone! Just to remind Today the french commitee is presenting its project (venues map, vision, legacy, teaser video...) at the Paris's Philharmonie in front of an audience of 2k. The french prime minister will assist at the event. Here's a link of the live coverage www.dailymotion.com/video/x3s6zqm_paris-2024-en-public-et-en-direct_news (16:00 CET) The website will be launched during this event apparently.
  2. Great vision indeed! I like the way they incorporate the actual venues with the project. Well done.
  3. I thought the same, but apparently Bach unveiled a new calendar as they are dropping the shortlist issue: all the bidding cities are going to Lima 2017... (if they don't sit out before) I'm kinda surprised no one is talking about it here. I'm not fan of the idea 'cuz the day a city like Doha or Dubai will decide to bid (not for the 2024 one), who knows what would happen, after all they managed to host 2022 WC and 2015 Handball WCs, and if the 2022 scenario repeats... Here's the source (in french, sorry guys ): http://www.lequipe.fr/Tous-sports/Actualites/Pas-de-short-list-pour-les-candidatures-aux-jeux-olympiques-2024/578123
  4. I secretly hoped Amalty would be the surprise... For the first time I saw in the presentation video, what Beijing looks like with a blue sky... ^^ Unusual.
  5. Wow, is the Usoc making fun of people? ^^ It's certainly just talks, but their choices/ideas leave me confused. At this point it seems obvious that it's Los Angeles or nothing... maybe not in their minds...
  6. I really hope Platini won't be elected, he's been a great player, did some good and bad things as dirigeant, but he won't change anything and his involvement into the 2022 WC vote is a big fail. The question is, is there really a person among current candidates who actually can (wants) to change the FIFA? I highly doubt about it. I think 2022 WC will be held, as planned, in Qatar, and this after thousands deaths of slaves on construction sites... What a shame.
  7. (After being safe to post in the right topic, where was my mind...) Unexpected is the word. I thought this would be more minimalist, it's already the case (simple shapes) in some way but at the end by assembling them I lose this feeling. There's a certain potential in this but I'm waiting to see where they will go with this: could be great or bad (actually I'm concerned by the pattern they will put on the banners everywhere in venues, I hope it's not the one we can see at the top of their website 'cuz it looks dated. Personally I feel they should work color by color, not all of them in one design or try something else. The colors look bland, I'd rather have a good deep black than shades of grey (feels dated) even the red dot could be stronger. Lack of energy, it could be a good design for contemporary art event or restaurant identity but olympics?... I also note that: the logo looks really heavy on the typo, the space between them should have been bigger. Overall, I like the fact they took the risk to try something different in olympics habits, will it worth it? I hope. My biggest disappointment is the lack of energy, mainly comes from the colors. Shapes thing is interesting though. Good luck Tokyo 2020 !
  8. My bad I posted it in the wrong topic. Can someone tell me how to delete it please or a moderator? ^^ Thank you.

  10. Thanks Cauê for making us (me at least) discover the architecture of your city. Rio is a wonder, no doubt Rio Olympics & Paralympics will be fantastic.
  11. Personally, I think Budapest could/should be European Games host. It seems to better fit to its profile (cool way to show a good image of your country and ability to host) It's not the same audience rates, but Hungary hasn't a real tradition of hosting such big things (no european football championships, no world athletics championships, just world swimming and some others. Sorry if I missed something) and I really think these newbie/countries have to test their ability before to bid for summer olympics. At this point Paris (hugely expected to win this) and Hamburg (I don't seriously believe into the multi cities concept of Rome) are the two big contenders, Boston is a.. I actually don't know how Boston bid will turn out.
  12. Yes (except if big surprise) He is clearly the man leading the sport movement in this bid as triple olympic champion and IOC member. He became IOC member in this perspective, (it shows how long since this bid is prepared and not just spontaneous.. Annecy I see you).
  13. The bidding process continues on its dynamic: -Today the pre-bidding committee is meeting at CNOSF, with state, regional and Paris delegates and the olympic movement. They will talk about the governance of the bid (Etienne Thobois, a specialist in sport strategies, who collaborated with winning Tokyo 2020 committee, is apparently joining the leadership of the Parisian bid). -Tomorrow, president François Hollande will visit the IOC museum in Lausanne and meet IOC president Thomas Bach, to talk about Paris bid. He will be accompanied by Tony Estanguet, IOC member, and CNOSF president Denis Masseglia. Saw an interview with Bernard Lapasset (source here in french, sorry) when the journalist asks him "2016 isn't too late to do a consultation?" Lapasset answers "The consultation will begin in two weeks, when the plan, and the tools to do it will be at our disposal. We will meet every territories concerned: Paris, Ile de France, and coastal regions who want to host sailing sports." That's it for now Oh I almost forgot that, the official bid announcement would probably be done just before IOC session in Kuala Lumpur, July 30-August 3.
  14. I feel the "consultation" is the better option in such a complex thing: it's a good way to promote the bid and to involve the population than just a "yes" or "no" which is arbitrary and can destroy years of work (the process to present a bid has begun in 2012 with the nomination of Bernard Lapasset at the CSFI). For once I feel Paris is on the good way, going step by step, with a bid lead by athletes (several french sport icons are ready to back the bid), leaders of the project are good (Lapasset as the (future ex-)IRB president and Tony Estanguet as CIO member, triple gold medalist ), the biggest part of politicians back the bid and understand that they have to step back. The project himself is cool and reasonable. The Seine-St-Denis part is the most interesting, and the integration into the Grand Paris overall is great. I really hope this time is the good one, because they said that if it's not we won't probably see another Paris bid before decades. So go Paris!
