  1. Thailand Mulls Bid To Host 2026 Youth Olympic Games Thailand is interested in hosting the 2026 Youth Olympic Games, it was revealed in PyeongChang this week during the Olympic Winter Games. Thai National Olympic Committee (NOC) President and Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan told the Bangkok Post after a meeting with IOC President Thomas Bach “This year’s edition [of the Youth Olympic Games] will be taking place in Argentina and the next edition of 2022 is likely to be held in Africa.” “No country has so far expressed its interest to host the Games in 2026,” he added, hinting that could be Thailand’s target. Four Thai NOC representatives were on hand at the high-level Olympic meeting in South Korea including IOC Member Khunying Patama Leeswadtrakul who claims the IOC will support a Thai bid. “The IOC president said that if the event benefits Thai people, it could propose [to host the Games],” she told the Bangkok Post. “There is no need to have new stadiums built and making full use of the existing ones would be enough.” Earlier this year the IOC outlined its mandate to site the 2022 edition of the quadrennial youth event in Africa – with Senegal being the current leading candidate. Further, the IOC says it will target strategic regions in the future and proactively work with cities in order to keep the costs of bidding for the Games very low. The IOC will elect the successful 2022 African city in October at the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games, but the organization has yet to describe its direction for 2026. The strategy is to bring the smaller Youth Olympic event to areas that couldn’t typically support the larger mainstream Games. Many IOC members including International Sport Federations and other sport leadership from around the world will descend upon Bangkok in April for the annual SportAccord Convention – the biggest meeting of the year on the International Sport Calendar. The Youth Olympic Games were launched as a project by former IOC President Jacques Rogge and saw its inaugural edition hosted in Singapore in 2010 followed by Nanjing in 2014. The Winter editions have taken place in Innsbruck in 2012, Lillehammer in 2016 and will be hosted in Olympic Capital Lausanne, Switzerland in 2020. source: https://gamesbids.com/eng/youth-olympic-bids/thailand-mulls-bid-host-2026-youth-olympic-games/
  2. Hi, First of all apologies if this is in the wrong place. I've just started some research looking at the legacies from bidding for events, and am seeking the Candidature Files from the failed bids from 2016 and 2020 (since the IOC started specifically asking this question). I have found the Candidature Files from Tokyo 2020 and Rio 2016, but am struggling to find Madrid 2016 Tokyo 2016 Chicago 2016 Istanbul 2020 Madrid 2020 This appears to mainly be because the official websites are long gone. I'd really appreciate it if anyone could point me in the direction of where I might find the missing files, or if you have digital copies, be prepared to send them to me. I'm looking forward to contributing to these forums over the course of my research and beyond! Thanks
  3. Athens 1996 Olympic bid files Hello! in case that you want to see I do have 2 Athens 1996 Olympic bid files in my collection. The site is www.olympicgr.com and the page with the files is http://www.olympicgr.com/1996-athens-bid
  4. Hello all, I was wondering if Istanbul 2020's Olympic Website was still active? It appears to be down. I am looking for information on the infrastructure proposed and would love to have a look at their past 5 bids. Does anyone know where I could get that information (apart from IOC)? Thanks you very much in advance for your help!
  5. Hi guys, this will be my first post with you on GamesBids, my sole source regarding Olympic bids. Given that the most recent BidIndex gave Tokyo its temporary relief over Istanbul due to a slight increase in public support, it won't be for the long run. Now recently, Daniel Choo, Born in London where last year's Olympic games were held, and currently residing in Japan since 1999, has opened not long ago, a campaign on Change.org to consider Tokyo for the 2020 Games of the XXXII Olympiad. He is requesting 10,000 signatures. So far, 1,500 made its mark, prior to its Late August deadline, in run-up for the host city elections. The description is as follows: 日本語は英語の下にあります Show your support for Japan! On 7 September 2013, the next Host City of the 2020 Olympic Games will be chosen from either Istanbul (Turkey), Tokyo (Japan) or Madrid (Spain). As a foreigner from the UK living in Japan for 14 years, I think that Tokyo should be chosen as the host city for the following reasons: Rich in tradition while being advanced in technology You can gain a truly incredible experience from a single visit - ask *anybody* who has come over to Japan. Enchanting country and culture Japan has managed to maintain traditional culture even through modern times which can be experienced by visiting the varied amount of places of interest in Japan. Take a look at the following link to see just a small example of what awaits you. http://www.dannychoo.com/post/en/26541/Places+to+visit+in+Japan.html Japanese culture is a uniting culture There is no other culture that unites people from all over the world and this is proven by the amount of Japan related (Anime, fashion, food, manga, cosplay, etc.) events that are held worldwide. Holding the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo will further unite people together from around the world and that's what the Olympics should be about. Transportation Trains, busses run frequently and on time - you can set your watch by the train arrival times! When you are over for the Olympic games - you can rest assured that the transportation system will ensure that you wont waste time waiting around. Tokyo is also filled with facilities for the disabled too. Non tipping country Japan is a non tipping culture which means you can spend less on tips and more on shopping and food! Safety Japan is ranked as the safest city in the world. If you are going to travel anywhere for the Olympics then it may as well be the safest place on earth! http://www.relax.com.sg/relax/media/1498006/Worlds_cleanest_safest_and_friendliest_cities.html Food Tokyo is filled with not only Japanese food but also a huge variety of international cuisine too. Take a look at the following link to see an example of what awaits you. http://www.dannychoo.com/post/en/26099/Japanese+Food+2.html More Japan I know there are many folks around the world who love Japan - if you are one of them then show your support by signing this petition - it does not cost anything to help. With the 2020 Olympics being held in Japan, you will be able to see more coverage of the land that you love on TV too!

  6. I think this may be of a usual find for you, when Anchorage bidded for the winter Olympics for the first time in 1985. Having a really strategic plan meant long enough before it became ousted from making it into the shortlist, which eventually went to Albertville. And after losing their 1994 bid to Lilliehammer during the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, they said: "No more, we're wasting money on such nonsense!"
