Who will take Cathy’s torch?

Cathy Freeman’s Sydney gold will always carry a special power, but the search is on to find a new hero for the next generation of potential Indigenous Olympians.

Freeman’s inspiration will never die, but 2000 Olympic beach volleyball gold medallist Natalie Cook – with a weather eye for the likely Brisbane Olympics of 2032 – has thrown out a challenge for someone else to burst through the front of your television set next month and mesmerise the next generation.

“The search is on for the new Cathy,’’ Cook said. “She has inspired so many, but someone else must carry the baton now. The biggest influence you can have on what children are going to do is when they are in the age of 7-10.

“Brisbane is positioned to win a huge majority as it’s extremely rare for members to vote against an Executive Board decision”

From a 10 June 2021 report by journalist Robert Livingstone posted right here on GamesBids.com in Future Summer Bids:

Brisbane 2032 Olympics almost assured after IOC Executive Board approves the single candidate for election

Australia’s third Olympic Games in Brisbane is now a mere formality away from reality after the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) Executive Board voted Thursday to approve the single preferred candidate, setting up a rubberstamping by the full membership July 21 in Tokyo.

Nothing new though. It’s always been the case that’s a host vote could go to a tie, with the president then having the tie-break vote.

We’ve even used that as the model for our logo comps since they began.

And it’s not like the July vote is even likely to be deadlocked anyway. Pure rubber stamp.

You’re absolutely correct :)

On another blog, a poster was saying the IOC President always abstains, which I thought was a bit weird. 

From page 43 of the page 43 of the Olympic Charter in force from 17 July 2020:

“Each member has one vote. Abstentions and blank or spoiled votes are not taken into consideration in the calculation of the required majority. Voting by proxy is not allowed. Voting is held by secret ballot when so required by the Olympic Charter, or if the Chairman so decides or upon the request of at least a quarter of the members present. In the event of a tie, the Chairman shall decide.”

 

The Chairman of the IOC Session being the IOC President.

”We’ll Smash Them Like Guitars”

American champion Gary Hall Jr. wrote on his blog before the race:

“My biased opinion says that we will smash them (Australia) like guitars.” 

What then unfolded would nearly lift the roof off the 17,000 capacity Sydney Olympic Aquatic Centre and the whole country as the Australian Mens 4 x 100m freestyle Team of  Michael Klim, Chris Fydler, Ashley Callus and Ian Thorpe, swimming the anchor leg, stormed home to out-touch Gary Hall Jnr and win the gold medal in a world record time 3:13:67.

Golden opportunity for new Olympic stadium in Brisbane: Ex-Roar coach

Brisbane’s 2032 Olympics bid and its hosting duties for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup present “a golden opportunity” for a 10,000-plus seat stadium to be built in the River City, according to the inaugural coach of Queensland’s A-League soccer team.

Former Queensland Roar coach Miron Bleiberg said his “blood was boiling” after he saw state government funding go to an AFL stadium in Ipswich, which started construction last month, when there was an alternative proposal for a multi-purpose stadium on an existing Brisbane site.

Bid flashback to 2017
Waiting Until 2032 Will Help Brisbane’s Olympic Bid, Claims Coates

FCMRqpe.jpg

Brisbane will benefit from the decision taken here yesterday to change the bid process for the 2024 and 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games, it has been claimed.

The Australian city was among those who had been exploring the possibility of launching a bid for the event in 2028, something no longer possible after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) voted at its Extraordinary Session to award both that and the 2024 edition together.

It is expected that Paris will host the 2024 Olympics and Los Angeles 2028. The decision is due to be confirmed at the IOC Session in Lima on September 13.

John Coates, President of the Australian Olympic Committee and the IOC vice-president who worked most closely on the plan to implement the joint award, claimed the decision could help Brisbane.

“Realistically, Brisbane at this point is significantly inferior to Paris: Paris has got 92 percent, and Los Angeles has got 100 per cent of the infrastructure, venues and village accommodation in place,” Coates told The Australian.

1.  Actually, it was NOT "Around the world."  It was THREE (3) countries: Oz, USA and Japan -- 3 Pacific countries.

2.  Why did they form the map of Florida??  :wacko:  Very strange!!

Do we think Brisbane will still be doing something for the host announcement like the GC?

I think so Victorian.

Although under the new system, the announcement won’t have the same drama as the old system.

It will still have a celebratory air to it if 51% or more of IOC members who are eligible vote ‘Yes’ to Brisbane 2032.

It is still an historic moment and so I think that, Covid allowing it at the time that there will be some sort of “live cross” to organised Olympic victory parties in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.

HA!  Australian IOC members CANNOT vote for Brisbane!! 
Brisbane will LOSE.   How can you hold an Olympic Games in a country where your IOC members did NOT vote for it??  

That has always been known.

The IOC Session rarely votes against an IOC Executive Board recommendation so Brisbane is expected to get 51% or more of the required votes to secure the Games.

Musicians of the World in the Sydney Olympic Band was how they were announced at the Opening Ceremony.

Who cares if not every country was represented.

Not strange at all since it was the Sydney 2000 Olympic Logo in the Opening Ceremony of the Sydney Olympic Games.

The crowd let out a huge cheer when the band formed Sydney logo formed.

I am more so referring to COVID.
