Recommended Posts

Each day is becoming worse for Istanbul. I seriously think Istanbul will be eliminated on the first round and I have questions of the votes.

^^ If that happends forget any opportunity for USA 2024.

Against Paris 2024 the only magic potion is Madrid 2020, or maybe Istambul like a hope balsam.

Europe not be hosting the 2024 Summer Olympics and Paralympics Games if Toronto Canada bids for the Games and if Tokyo Japan gets the 2020 Games then the natural host after Japan host the games is North America Tokyo 64 - Mexico 68, Sapporo 72 - Denver 76, Nagano 98 - Salt Lake City 2002.

Paris France or Rome Italy will be hosting the 2028 Summer Olympics and Paralympics Games 2024 is North America turn and will host the 1st Games in the 21st Century North America has not hosted the Summer Olympics and Paralympics Games yet in the 21st Century while Oceania, South America, Asia hosted 1 and Europe hosted 2 if Tokyo Japan get's 2020 that will be 2 for Asia while Nothing for North America, Africa is not ready for the Summer Olympics and Paralympics Games and I can see them hosting there 1st games in mid 21st Century.

Canada will beat the USA in the hosting rights 3 reasons for that 1 Canada has last hosted the games in 76 which will be 48 years since Montreal while with the USA 28 years since Atlanta 96, 2 Toronto Canada has got a lead over American cities with Toronto Canada hosting the 2015 Pan American and Parapan American Games which will help them like Rio 2007 - 2016 SOPG, 3 Canada has got more of a stable economy then the USA and Canada is booming economy and along with Australia are the 2 most strongest economy in the Western World right now.

For the USA I think that Anchorage will host the 2026 Winter Games and Los Angeles will host the 2032 Summer Games.

For me are too much numbers for such a complicated decision, a decision based in lobbies we don´t know, in a convulse world where in a moment all can change.


It is true the system is always the same, but for me nowadays is not so predictive as before. This is my thinking, and I only want to share it.

Ummm, none of these are neither here nor there. For the first, these things aren't exactly linear, ya know. If they were, then Paris would've won 2012 instead of London, since France had been waiting much longer than the U.K. in hosting another Summer Olympics. And if

The second, the PanAms helped Rio in the way to instill confidence to the IOC that Brazil was indeed ready to host a multi-sport event in a new frontier. Something Canada doesn't need, since they've already proven that they can host the Olympic Games. Atlanta nor Montreal hosted PanAms before they were awarded the Olympics. So this aspect of the PanAms is negligible at best.

The third, the Candian economy being a bit better off (for now anyway) is also negligible. Especially in the event that Madrid were to happen win the 2020 Games, then it would be clear that the IOC doesn't have a great problem in awarded the Games to economies that are not in the best of shape. The U.S. can deliver good Games just as well as Canada could.

I completely disagree. Paris has the 100 year appeal along with the fact that it is such a global city; mainland North Europe has not hosted the games this century at all and When Tokyo wins 2020 many doors will be opened for Rome, Paris, and Berlin any Canadian or American city bid will not hold up. I do agree with your points on Africa though, they will get them in the 50-60's time slot.

Canada can not host the games at this moment. While I know they will host at least one summer games this century they are the North American beacon for the winter games; the IOC is not going to give a nation the games because the last one was 48 years ago...1996 anyone?. As I have also said before, the US should sit out this round. No really appealing city has come up (as far as we know) and if the USOC does bid I hope we do not make the shortlist as the defeat would be humiliating and devastating. The fact is that North America will not hold up against Europe.

Turkish Athletics Chief Quits Over Doping Scandals

(ATR) Turkish NOC president Uğur Erdener insists the resignation of the country’s athletics chief over a series of doping scandals will not damage the Istanbul 2020 bid.

Mehmet Terzi stepped down Friday after nine years in the job, admitting he should be held accountable for the doping cheats who have given Turkish athletics a band name.

More than 19 Turkish athletes have tested positive for banned substances since the start of the year. London Olympic 1,500-meter champion Cakir Alptekin is under investigation for “abnormalities found in her blood passport”. She won Turkey’s first-ever gold medal in track and field at the Olympics.

Earlier this month, a fresh Turkish doping scandal involving dozens of athletes threatened to derail the Istanbul 2020 campaign. Britain’s Daily Telegraph reported that up to 30 Turkish athletes had failed tests on their "A" urine samples as part of an anti-doping operation in the build-up to the Mersin Mediterranean Games held in June.

Erdener, who is a member of the World Anti-Doping Agency, said in statement sent to Around the Rings that Turkey was serious about its commitment to anti-doping.

“As the Turkish NOC president I will ensure that the new leadership of the Turkish Athletics Federation abides by the rigorous standards set out in Turkey’s comprehensive anti-doping legislation, other national laws and international anti-doping practices,” he said.

In an apparent reference to the doping positives by Turkish athletes ahead of the Mersin Games, he added: “There may be more positive tests to come, but it is a price we must pay to see clean young Turkish athletes winning medals on the international stage.”

The Istanbul 2020 leadership is thought to be viewing the exit of Terzi as a positive for the bid. They believe it will send the right message to the IOC that the Turkish Athletics Federation is getting its house in order.
