Guardian

Recommended Posts

It is about 1 month from now before the Olympic athletes themselves determine which 4 Olympians, out of the list of 32 listed in this topic earlier, will be part of the IOC as members.

This is not good here, in my point of view. Even though Kim of South Korea and Slavkov of Bulgaria is in the news for the wrong reasons, they both are NOT being expelled from being IOC members at this time. I just looked in the IOC website and the number of IOC members is down again by one to 123.

For those who are Indonesian, this is not good for you people. For some unknown reason that I haven't found out yet, Indonesia has now NO IOC members.

It surprises me that China, Japan and Brazil ahve less than countries like Sweden and Switzerland.

Well, nearly half of all the IOC members come from Europe. By the way, Israel is considered part of Europe in this regard.

Who considers Israel as part of Europe in that regard?

Just because they have lighter skin, doesnt make them European. Israel couldn't get into the EU if it wanted to.

Israeli Sports Federations and associations are members of their European counterparties (UEFA, Eurobasket, Eurohandball and so on) and participate in all European International Federation.

Israel is safely included in European Sport, just as they should be. They're after all a European transplant in a not-so-distant region (a few sea miles from Cyprus, for example).

It's not a question of skin tone. It's politics (arabs will not take them in their associations and federations), security (mostly) and, arguably, cultural affinity.

I've done some rough estimates based mainly on politics and cultural links about who the IOC memebers are most likely to vote for. If the end game comes down to Paris v London, I reckon it will go something like this:

AFRICA/OCEANIA:

London 12; Paris 10

ASIA:

London 14; Paris 10

AMERICAS:

London 10; Paris 10

EUROPE (3 votes for France and 4 for GB not counted)

London 16; Paris 35

TOTAL

London 52  Paris 65

In my scenario paris would win.... mainly as a result of strong support from other European countries.

I think this is right: there will be 3 male and 1 female athletes added to the IOC member list. Also, they come from these countries:

Czech Republic

Egypt

Morocco

Namibia

Apart from that 4 new members, other 4 athletes are no longer part of the IOC:

Manel Estiarte (Spain)

Charmaine Crooks (Canada)

Roland Baar (Germany)

Matthew Pinsent (UK)

Spain now have 2 members of the IOC.

I think that changes benefit Paris the most as the Egyptian and Moroccan members will vote for Paris 2012 for sure.

Yes, this isn't great for London or Madrid, whose countries both lost an IOC member who could lobby others.

Why do you say the Egyptian member will vote Paris 'for sure. Apart from personal preference, Egypt also has strong ties with Britain and London.

Morocco has strong links with France, but most Moroccans i know hate the French.

Well, just personal thoughts.

I think these 2 members could vote Paris but who knows!

On the ohter hand, Morocco has also ties with Spain and Egypt with UK, so everything could happen. However, in the case of Hicham el Guerrouj (from Morocco). I don't see him voting for Madrid. Spain supported Morocco for 2010 World Cup and this could help but I just don't see it. Dont' ask me why, it's just a strong feeling.

It is updated now. However, it seems that the IOC is now trying to CUT BACK the number of active IOC members now. Before the update, the number was 123. Now, it is only 118. This number INCLUDES the four that was elected at the Athens 2004 Olympic Games. I guess I'll have to find out which nations lost members now.

Maybe Bulgaria - Ivan Slavkov

Believe it or not, he's STILL IN. As in Kim Un Yong: the South Korean IOC VP that could be heading for jail. Isn't this weird or what?  :shocked:

The list has been changed again! This time, they added 3 more members. Actually, they are the veterans and I will change the third and fourth post of this topic over now. The total now is 122.

Now that we are in the year that the 2012 Olympic Games will be decided upon, these IOC members will have a tough choice to determine that at July in Singapore.

Just to confirm that there are 118 active members - Susie O'Neill (AUS) has just resigned.

Regarding the vote, in the first round 101 members will get to vote (118, less 2 for Slavkov and Kim, less 14 members from the countries of the bid cities, less Rogge)
