I told myself I wouldn't give a sh!t who won. But I realised pretty quickly after I read the announcement that while I would have accepted Almaty, I was totally disgusted by the Beijing choice. I hone

Denis' presentation hits that emotional area like Mami Sato did in 2013. I wonder if Tokyo gave them advice...

Tokyo would love to put Beijing down, as far as rivalries go, right?

But man, this is apple is so full of poison... I'm lovin' it.

I never thought about it, but I think that Almaty's applicant city bid might help them against Beijing who are going for their first time.


Best for last, the Rock Star Prime Minister!

Denis Ten was charming. The woman who spoke French did well and with a charming accent. They are throwing some serious shade--with a fair bit of élan. Not positioning their bid as inevitably successful...more lining it up as the better choice based on sport, climate, sustainability and risk.

Just admitted to WTO last week...well that was well timed!

We have heard if you don't pick Almaty, the IOC can sleep well over next seven years. When have you ever slept well? When have you ever rested on your accomplishments? It was the IOC who took the Games to Tokyo 20 years after World War Two, to Moscow during the Cold War.

I think Almaty absolutely nailed the presentation. Did not expect them to do so well. They highlighted their strengths and Beijing's weaknesses very well.

Denis Ten was a very good ambassor in my honest opinion. Also their presentation was honest and simple. People who thought Beijing would win this easily will have to think over again.
