  1. With almost only one year to go, I guess it's maybe time to make a proper thread for discussion about the ceremonies. However, it looks like there are some issues surounding the production of the ceremonies, according to this link http://news.sbs.co.kr/news/endPage.do?news_id=N1003757002 It seems that there were some internal conflicts between Song Seung Hwan, the ceremonies director, and Jeong Gu Ho, art director, which forced the later to resign (apparently there were a lot of creative differences between the two, so its now feared the ceremonies might suffer because of this
  2. News outlets are reporting that 2014 figure Skating bronze medalist Denis Ten died as a result of stab wounds he received during an attempted car robbery. It all happened in Almaty, where he lived and trained. So sad to see this in the news. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/early-lead/wp/2018/07/19/olympic-figure-skating-medalist-denis-ten-killed-in-stabbing/
  3. According to a NYT story, by 2050 several former winter Olympic hosts will no longer be able to host the winter olympics again due to climate change. Some on there weren't at all surprising to me like Sochi and Garmish (I've noticed a trend in warming temps there when I compared temps between that area and Pyeongchang while they were bidding to host the 2018 winter games). Looks like maybe Vancouver should try and put in 1 more bid soon. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/01/11/climate/winter-olympics-global-warming.html
  4. Last week, the slopestyle course for both Snowboard and Ski were unveiled as part of the 100 days to go events. PYEONGCHANG 2018 OLYMPIC SLOPESTYLE COURSE REVEALED AND IT LOOKS CRAZY https://www.dewtour.com/snow/pyeongchang-2018-olympic-slopestyle-course-revealed-looks-crazy/
  5. If anyone is in town over the next couple weeks, Winsport will be hosting a few events to mark the 30th anniversary of the Calgary 88 Winter Olympics at Olympic Park. First up is this weekend. There will be some family oriented events for the Family Day long weekend. Then on Feb 23, there will be an adults only party starting at 7pm, which is free. Got my ticket already. Come out, reminisce, and show support for Calgary 2026! For details for all the events Winsport is hosting, check out this link: WinSport events: Celebrate Calgary 88's 30th Anniversary And keep your eyes on the Calg
  6. I thought I should make a separate thread about this, considering its starting to gain a lot of momentum at the moment as a great majority of South Koreans are looking with contempt this decision which might marry the reputation of these games. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-olympics-2018-northkorea-icehockey/plan-for-joint-olympics-team-with-north-gets-icy-reception-in-south-korea-idUSKBN1F50E8 To add more insult to injury, it seems they even forced SK coach and the team players to not even talk to journalists anymore. http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/northkorea/2018/01/
  7. So, Canada apparently unveiled already their apparel for Pyeongchang 2018 some days ago, so I think it's time to open up a thread for the apparels the rest of the delegations will be wearing for the Winter Olympics. http://olympic.ca/2017/10/03/team-canada-and-hudsons-bay-unveil-pyeongchang-2018-collection/ Here's the unveiling of Team Canada apparel. Here's the latest incarnation of Canada iconic red mittens which will be worn next February

  9. Yet again the Winter Olympics is causing havoc with the environment http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/sep/16/olympic-organisers-destroy-sacred-south-korean-forest-to-create-ski-run. The IOC claims to uphold the environment as its Third Dimension! Same happened at Vancouver and Sochi and is also happening at Beijing2022 http://www.nature.com/news/chinese-biologists-lead-outcry-over-winter-olympics-ski-site-1.18174?from=timeline&isappinstalled=0
  10. And now we're down to the final two showdown! In the last round of voting, we finished up with the result: Innsbruck 2, Oslo 5, Reykjavik 6, and Denver 2. On the basis that the combined votes of Innsbruck and Denver would not equal their next nearest rival (Oslo's 5), and in the interests in keeping things moving, the tail-end two are eliminated. Thanks to both aismanggo and mr.bernham for entering - you take out joint Bronze medals. And well done to mr.bernham for polling to choose his final entry. We'll be seeing both of them back to contest the summer section. We had 15 votes cast, all bon
  11. Welcome back everyone for the business end of the Winter Games section of the Seventh Annual GamesBids Logo Design Competition. And a really big thank to all who voted in the short list round. We had an amazing 50 votes – I think it was our biggest voting turnout ever, to match the big field! Re: the results of the short list round. I discounted the votes from: nzl (competitor protest); rypyor03 & luan (not satisfied of their bona fides); all votes for submission G (the rest of the votes for members who voted for G are valid); and alphacarter’s, Daveypodmore’s and Mr Benham’s own votes
