  1. The Qatar Olympic Committee has announced it's interest in hosting the 2032 Summer Olympics and Paralympics. Qatar unsuccessfully bid to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games in both 2016 and 2020. The Qatari capital of Doha hosted the 2006 Asian Games, an event which was seen to have encouraged them to bid for other global events. This included the FIFA World Cup, which Qatar will host in 2022 after being controversially awarded the tournament in 2010. This was despite the bid process being the subject of allegations of bribery and corruption. Similar allegations also surrounded the Wor
  2. Following successfully hosting the 18th Asian Games, Indonesia plans to bid for the 2032 Olympic Games. http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2018/09/01/indonesia-to-bid-for-2032-olympics.html
  3. Looks like there's a chance this may start to gain traction. A couple of weeks ago, there were rumblings that at least 1 US city was showing interest in the Winter Olympics. Now it appears the USOC is willing to entertain the thought.. USOC expects to discuss possible Winter Olympic bid So let's see where this goes, but clearly this is beyond the purely hypothetical stage where the highest ranking members from the USOC have publicly acknowledged the possibility.
  4. The 2016-17 figure skating season officially concludes next week with the World Team Trophy in Tokyo but here's the schedule for the important events in the figure skating calendar for the Olympic season.

  5. 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
  6. We're just about halfway the games, but we already have some estimates of how much Pyeongchang 2018 has costed. $12.9 billion dollars. Still a farcry to the infamous $50 billion of Sochi, and it's almost on pair with the $13.1 billion of Rio 2016. Still though, it is a shame the costs increased because of transport (that train from Seoul to Gangneung along added a lot of money to the budget) https://www.cbssports.com/olympics/news/2018-winter-olympics-pyeongchang-games-reportedly-cost-4b-more-than-expected/ Time will tell, but the early indications are that the big bucks may b
  7. Well, we're just 3 days away for the start of the games (even if they technically start on thursday), so I imagined we might as well get started for the traditional Livechat thread to share our thoughts, views, joys and cringes. Even though this time many of us will have to wake up very early to watch the show. The opening ceremony will start at 8:00 PM (Korea's local time). That would be 5:00 AM (Central Standard Time), 6:00 AM (Eastern Standard Time) and 3:00 AM (Pacific Standard Time) in the US, respectively. If you want to know exactly at which hour the Opening begins, you can use th
  8. Epidemics have ruined lots of good plans. But this time it relates Olympic Games planned in South Korea and this is a catastrophe imo. https://www.reddit.com/r/korea/comments/7r8hd4/south_korea_is_hit_by_dangerous_bird_flu_virus/ Lots of financial and human resources have been already spent in the run-up to the Games. But the risks are too high to ignore this challenge called H5N6.
  9. MUMBAI India's Olympic Association has asked the government for permission to bid for the 2032 Olympics and 2030 Asian Games as part of a drive to put the country at the heart of the international sporting community, IOA President N. Ramachandran has told Reuters. Ramachandran said the IOA also wanted India to host the Asian Beach Games in 2020, the Olympic Council of Asia's general assembly that year, and the International Olympic Committee session in 2021. The aim, Ramachandran said, was to use the engagement as a catalyst for the growth of Olympic sports in India and to help improve t

  11. Rio 2016 is not an event with protests against the interim president Michel Temer, only. Rio 2016 is an event with art and sport celebration too OLYMPIC BOULEVARD - Rio's Port Area Rio’s Olympic Boulevard unveils massive mural celebrating indigenous cultures One of the most impressive works in our recent spotlight on Rio de Janeiro’s vibrant street art scene is a brand new masterpiece by Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra, who just transformed a whopping 190-meter-long (that’s over 600 feet) wall in Rio’s renovated port district into a celebration of the world’s indigenous

  13. Hello there!, First, let me introduce myself, My name is Sabin, I come from Onesti, Romania. Growing up, I was very interested in gymnastics (mainly the women's) Romania is actually a large gymnastics nation (Nadia came from Onesti!) Anyway, I started this topic so I could discuss the many scandals and robberies that have taken place in gymnastics events at the Olympics, I will be mainly focussing on the women's side but if anyone has any suggestions, feel free to ask and I would love to study them, here's the first of many - Andreea Raducan being stripped of her 2000 All-Around Gold - In 2

  15. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/sports/ioc-awards-olympics-broadcast-rights-nbc-through-2032-n99391 The International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Wednesday awarded NBCUniversal (NBCU) the broadcast rights in the USA for the Olympic Games through to 2032.
