I'm assuming the he saying the plan feels like it is limiting its contributions to the world of sports in general (because it's mostly focusing on improving Switzerland/Lausanne?) somehow. I'm really not sure.

Dear god, that "question" Cinquanta asked the Lausane bid... what a pompous a-hole.

I thought the exact same thing. The only rationale I can possibly come up with for a question like that is that Cinquanta thinks small countries are incapable of hosting successful events. The question was very loaded and arrogant, in my opinion.

Correction: . . . large successful events . . . .

Is it back on? I'm on the IOC site and it just says: LIVE...but no transmission.

How odd that some1.5 years after the loss of MH370 and small world spotlight is on Malaysia (as IOC host) and then the wing from the missing jet washes up. Couldn't have been planned better.

"Almaty 2022 is more than an invitation. It is a promise to stage a winter wonderland," the video concludes. "Real snow, real winter ambiance. Real Winter Games. Almaty 2022 - Keeping it Real."

"sensible bid". Going right into the subliminal jabs at Beijing.

"Keeping it real is when there's so much snow!"

Almaty is not being shy tonight, are they?

They've always been very honest about those kind of things


The point they're making that choosing Kazakhstan will show other less developed countries that they are able to run against much more developed countries and win may bode over well with the IOC...


Also they are obviously jumping all over Beijing which is hilarious

Watching with my mom, and she is laughing her butt off because the speaker's accent makes it sound like he's saying focks (f*cks) instead of facts...

Almaty already has my sympathy for being blatantly honest with their bid and teasing Beijing. Too bad they're also ruled by a regime with a bad human rights reputation but eh thats beyond the point now.

Throwback to Tokyo 2020!

Also so many jabs at Beijing, I bet the IOC is loving this.

When he said world power as well. This is a lot more fun that I thought it was going to be.

I wonder if Beijing will be the same or if they will be artificially kind...


and in French! Here's Almaty's Christel Takigawa!

The map with the giant dot is making a comeback!

Loving how aggressive Almaty is being.

Hey guys: do you think Almaty has snow? I'm not sure about that.
