You have this amazing propensity to rewrite reality to support your personal desired outcome. It looks to me that Tokyo's had a very successful visit so far.

But of course it was much worse. Did anyone really was so innocent to believe that the magnitude of the radiation, after the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl, was insignificant?). What pisses me

Why fear? Radiation level in Tokyo is one of the LOWEST out of ALL other major capital cities. If you don't want Tokyo to win the bid that's totally understandable but please state facts and not fear

Tokyo 2020 Inspired by IAAF Opening Ceremony

11 Aug 2013

The Tokyo 2020 team, following its attendance at the impressive opening ceremony of the 14th IAAF World Championships in Moscow today, is more determined than ever to inspire the world with Tokyo’s Bid to host an unprecedented ‘downtown’ 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.


IOC Member and President of both Tokyo 2020 and the Japanese Olympic Committee (JOC) Tsunekazu Takeda said: “The Opening Ceremony here in Moscow was a grand event. I wish to congratulate the IAAF, under the strong leadership of President Lamine Diack and the local organising committee for their work. Should we receive the honour of hosting the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, we will host an Opening Ceremony where spectators and athletes will be truly united as one.”


“The Opening Ceremony is without a doubt one of the most memorable experiences, and we are working closely with the IOC to ensure the best possible environment for athletes. Specifically, athletes will be able to wait comfortably in the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium, the venue just next to the Olympic Stadium and connected through a corridor, allowing easy and safe access.“ Takeda said.


He added that the athletes will be able to get seated once they enter the Olympic Stadium, ensuring that they can enjoy the Ceremony first-hand.


With a passion not only for athletics but for all sport, Japan is a long-term partner of the IAAF. In fact at the current World Championships, the official broadcaster and four of the seven official partners are Japanese companies. Japan’s close relationship with the IAAF was born when it hosted the 1991 IAAF World Championships in central Tokyo’s Kasumigaoka National Stadium.


The International Olympic Committee (IOC) will elect the 2020 host city at the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 7 Sept. 2013.

Tokyo, 12 August 2013 - Tokyo 2020 announced today that Rakuten, Inc., one of the largest e-commerce companies in the world, has become Tokyo’s latest Official Bid Partner, bringing the ever growing list of corporate partners to 21. Rakuten, Inc. will collaborate closely with the Bid Committee to help bring Olympism to the heart of Tokyo, the world’s trend-setting capital of high technology.

Rakuten CEO Hiroshi Mikitani said: “The Rakuten group’s corporate philosophy has always been to empower people and society through the internet. Owing to our strong affinity with sport and its capability to inspire society, we have actively engaged in empowerment through sport as part of our CSR initiatives. With hopes that Japan will have the opportunity to empower the world, the Rakuten group is fully behind Tokyo 2020’s efforts to land the greatest celebration of sport, the Olympic and Paralympic Games.”

Tokyo 2020 CEO Masato Mizuno said: “With less than one month to go until the Host City Election, I am pleased to introduce Rakuten as the 21st official Tokyo 2020 Bid Partner. Tokyo 2020 offers certainty in times of uncertainty, and Rakuten’s enlistment as Official Bid Partner underscores the Japanese business community’s strong desire to contribute its knowhow, technologies and creativity toward a dynamic Tokyo 2020.”

The IOC Evaluation Commission praised Tokyo’s marketing programme in its report issued on 25 June. Tokyo 2020 projects that revenue from domestic sponsorship would total USD 932 million, with an additional USD 26 million for the Paralympic Games. “Given the scale of the Japanese economy and the support for sport that has been demonstrated by the corporate sector, the overall revenue target is considered achievable,” the report stated.

Abe’s Japan Is Blind to Scary Nuclear Reality

By William Pesek Aug 13, 2013 6:00 AM GMT+0900 Bloomberg




Abe’s Seriousness


Dollar Signs

That brings us to the “what.” Fukushima is a growing embarrassment for Japan on the international stage. Oceans don’t have boundaries. Radioactive traces have been found in bluefin tuna -- not to mention on secondhand cars and auto parts imported by Russia from Japan. Another earthquake -- a live possibility -- could damage Fukushima anew or take out another reactor between now and the 2020 Summer Olympics that Tokyo hopes to host. The world won’t give Japan a pass twice on what would have been a perfectly preventable disaster.

Fukushima now in state of emergency, leaking 300 tons of radioactive water into the ocean daily

Tuesday, August 13, 2013 NaturalNews

Tokyo Electric Power Company workers sprayed with wildly radioactive water while waiting for a bus.

The Tokyo Electric Power Company cover-up.

Japan is a society that shuns whistleblowers.

Why the U.S. government plays along with the cover-up.

The Fukushima disaster is likely to get far worse, if you can believe that.

What is with all these newbies spamming and catastrophising Tokyo's bid? There were several concentrated, similar efforts against Istanbul in other websites- one using the name "Mike Adams" I believe.

Where could these random posts be coming from??¿¿¿

remains to be seen if it will get worse. Still not as bad as the closing days of the 2016 race, with all the web-based "Chicagoans for Rio" shenannigans.

Superb Tokyo 2020 Games Will Offer Gateway to the "Continent of Tomorrow" - Games in Tokyo will inspire over one billion young people in Asia

Nanjing, China, 16 August 2013 - Driven by the city's location in the largest and youngest continent in the world, Tokyo 2020 President, Tsunekazu Takeda, has pledged its Bid is the safe pair of hands that can be trusted to deliver superb Games that will be a gateway to the "continent of tomorrow".

Speaking at the 2nd Asian Youth Games in Nanjing, the Host City for next year's Youth Olympic Games, Tsunekazu Takeda - an IOC member, Vice President of the Olympic Council of Asia, and President of the Japanese Olympic Committee (JOC) - praised the concept of the Asian Youth Games and offered an exciting glimpse at what the world's youngest content offers the Olympic Movement.

Takeda also underlined that Tokyo is the Asian city that bridges East and West with the world's biggest urban population. The country's unrivalled passion for sport is shared by all of Japan including the corporate sector, as shown by the most recent addition of its 21st Official Bid Partner.

"This is why Tokyo 2020 is the right Games at the right time for the Olympic Movement, offering a safe pair of hands that can be trusted to deliver superb Games in these uncertain times. A Games that enthuses young people about sport and the Olympic and Paralympic Games."

Takeda added: "In Japan and Asia, the sport market is growing. Our continent is composed of both strong developed economies and rapidly growing markets, maximising the commercial potential of the Tokyo 2020 Games. This dynamic atmosphere in Asia is clear for all to see at the Asian Youth Games."

Asia is the only continent in the world with more people living within its territory than outside, subsequently allowing Tokyo 2020 to offer the Olympic Movement to reach the world's largest market.

"Tokyo 2020's certainly of delivery is supported by our location in the vast market of Asia, with billions of passionate sports fans and some of the world's largest international organisations with a long history of investing in sport," he concluded.

Tokyo 2020 has planned to establish an Olympic Museum in the new state-of-the-art Olympic Stadium, which will be a new and engaging beacon for Olympism in Asia.

August 19, 2013 18:43 Russia Today

Readings of tritium in seawater taken from the bay near the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant has shown 4700 becquerels per liter, a Tokyo Electric Power Company report stated, according to Nikkei newspaper. It marks the highest tritium level in the measurement history.

The level of radiation at the site was estimated at 100 millisieverts per hour, while the safe level of radiation is 1-13 millisieverts per year, according to ITAR-TASS news agency. The plant’s operator is currently investigating reasons for the leak, Tokyo Electric Power Company said in a statement.

Protective barriers installed to prevent the flow of toxic water into the ocean have failed to do so. The level of contaminated water has already risen to 60cm above the barriers, which has been a major cause of the daily leak of toxic substances, Tokyo Electric Power Company admitted.

So we've had two or three newbies on here and on SSC who register just to post links about Fukushima in an almost identical posting style, just two weeks before the vote.

I wonder if this account really is posting from "Sydney, Australia".

Hmmmmm........

It's quite laughable really isn't it, be interesting to see where their Ip's track to.

Still, probably more entertaining than the obligatory first newbie post of asking the age old question of everyones favourite Olympic logo :P
