Recommended Posts

Why does it seems Madrid didn't used the logo? Insted only two hands and simplel-looking typing... Akward

Yeah, what's with Madrid and the hands? 2012 seemed to say "stop, go no further", this time it seems to say "we're empty handed and grasping".

I refrained from mentioning it, but it almost looks like two hands begging. Similar irony to Australia's Centrelink logo, which looks like two hands outstretched for coins.

Is this an admission from Madrid 2020 that their bid logo is rubbish?

ALSO - having issues loading the Istanbul bid book - anyone else having a problem?

That's why like most of my IOC colleagues, we never bother with the bid books. Too difficult to download. Straight to eBay where we know Darcy and Lord David will pretty much buy what we ask!! LOL!

$20M in Turkish sponsorship for Istanbul bid




LONDON (AP) - Istanbul's bid for the 2020 Olympics has lined up sponsorship deals with seven leading Turkish companies worth more than $20 million.

Bid leader Hasan Arat calls it a "landmark deal'' that represents the largest private sector investment in any Turkish sports bid.

He says the sponsors - including Turkish Airlines, mobile phone company Turkcel and digital satellite provider Digiturk - are "the engine'' of Turkey's growing economy.

Istanbul, which has failed in four previous Olympic bids, is touting its economic strength and access to new economic markets as a key element of its latest campaign.

The city is competing against Madrid and Tokyo. Spain has been going through a deep financial crisis, while Japan's economy is stagnant.

The IOC will select the host city Sept. 7 in Buenos Aires.

Great news for Istanbul. It shows they're capable of getting decent sponsorship deals in place which bodes well for if they win the Games.

This definitely a step in the right direction. And Emre, I like your new location.

Speaking of emre, Istanbul is SO vast and dense that the one & only time I was there, emre could NOT meet me (and I totally understand). But if the lay of his own native city prevents him from meeting a friend/acquaintance during a NON-HECTIC period...what more during a really compacted, compressed time like an Olympic Games? So, I fear holding an Olympic Games in Istanbul will be a cause for many missed opportunities. Maybe that should be the theme of their ceremonies? ;)

Although its good news..but seriously i think it should be expected. These companies are the ones who will profit most with exposure during the games...not only that im sure a lot of the visitors will be using Turkish Airlines to get to Istanbul, will be eating Ulker foods, etc...they will make gain much much more back if the games is are awarded to the city..
