From the Jaca blog:

In jaca2014.es it is notifies the great distances that there are in the present Games of Turin:

"surpassed Test: in spite of the distances between the facilities of the Olympic Games of Turin , Enrique Villarroya, Eva Almunia, Carlos Perez Anandnd Antonio Cosculluela have returned to house with a great acquired Olympic experience."

What surely they have not wanted to calculate is that the distances to cover in Jaca 2014 are 2.7 times greater than in Turin 2006.

/translation/

What a weird way to promote your bid

Yes, here in Spain we don't need any critic, we (everybody not) are enough critics and pessimists about our bids.

Anyway, distances are bigger in Jaca than in Torino, but the time required to cross that distances is much less in Jaca than in Torino.

NEWS: Plushenko will act today in Zaragoza, this will help to show internationally the interest of Jaca and Aragon about the ice events. The performance will take place in the Prince Felipe Pavilion, a venue presented for the 2014 Olympic Games.

I don't know why they have chosen Zaragoza, but this is very important in order to promote the city.

This spectacle has already visited Paris and later it will arrive at Tokyo, the only cities, in addition to Zaragoza, that could be present at the edition of this year.

Champions on Ice is at the moment the most important and prestigious figure skating tour of the world and counts on representations in the five continents, although it had never arrived at Spain.

How long will this joke called *jaca 2014* will last. :rolleyes:

This joke will last until Jaca wins a Winter Olympics Games. (Now you can make an easy joke saying: "Then, we have Jaca for years").

How can you say that Jaca is a joke with Almaty or Georgia as applicant cities? Why don't you give any reasons? What is what you have against Jaca or against Spain?

I would like to hear your opinion, unless that Jaca 2014 was a boring topic for you to talk about.

:grinning:

Besides, he assured that the "lack of tradition" in winter sports of a country as Spain "is not an unsalvable aspect". "The most important it is the technical aspect, not the national equipment.  If Jaca wins I am sure that the Spanish sport is going to develop a lot".

what's with this blitz or articles on Jaca?

Again,

#1 - no one here is voting, so why are you campaigning so hard here?

#2 - OK, if we don't like it -- then we don't have to read it or comment.  Then fine, who will look at it?   :rolleyes:

Firstly, if I work so hard is because I love Jaca and The Pyrennes, this is enough reason.

Secondly, although you can't believe it, there are many people who are interested about Jaca. You only have to look the number of views and then, you can imagine the number of guest (and members) that have seen the topics.

Thirdly, I want that people interested in Jaca can know all news about the bid and all the support that it has. I don't want that when people think in Spain (Jaca), only imagine beaches, sun, flamenco, bulls...OLÉ OLÉ!

... :wwww:
