runningrings Posted August 23, 2014 Report Share Posted August 23, 2014 No we wouldn't. Jonno is right - its a minus to a bid more than it is a positive. However I'm in between the view of you both, I don't think it is as much of a catastrophe as Jonno is making out, but it certainly won't be some kooky plus like you're making out. That said - all Olympic bids have big hurdles - Fukushima in Tokyo, Brazilian uncertainty for 2016, etc... Melbourne is still possible. Frankly I'd feel a lot better if the IOC nudged again with dates. I think a Melbourne Games that were able to straddle late Sept-early Oct would be far more palatable. All this aside, its a long shot for any Aussie city. All this talk is just state politics. Would be very surprised to see an Aussie Olympic bid mounted for this side of 2030.
