Snow in Brisbane is rare - ABC News Australia - 10 June 2021

The Bureau of Meteorology has only three official records of snow in Brisbane: June 1927, June 1932 (witnessed by seven people), and September 1958 (light flakes were seen by four people at 5:15pm in Moorooka, Wooloowin, Bowen Hills and Taringa.”

——————————————————————-

Brisbane’s ideal northern warmer and clearer winter weather in July/August for athletic performance was a significant factor in it’s successful New Norm candidature to host the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

I never said Brisbane never got snow. Only that it’s been known to snow in the vicinity:

Where it has snowed around Brisbane

Snow actually occurs in Queensland at an average of just over one day per year. So, while not being a typical winter feature, it’s certainly not unheard of. Check out this ‘Table of Snowfall Events in South-East Queensland: 1878-2015’, compiled by Nicholas Oughton, for all recorded snow events around us — it’s pretty amazing!

 

In other words, just like Sydney never gets snow, it sure as hell snows usually some time each year as close as the Blue Mountains - which these days are virtually an outer suburb. And it’s sure not beach weather.

The thing is, going by the charts you’ve supplied, the temps will be okay but not perfect. It won’t always be shorts and t-shirts weather. A daily max of 17-20 is not exactly balmy, and nights below 14 may not require thermals but at least some light jumper or cardigan if you’re spectating outside.  

It’s not a cold winter Sydney or a frosty Melbourne, but it’s still gonna be cooler than the average summer games. Acceptable but far from perfect.

Quick reminder again that Gujarat is Modi‘s home base. That‘s the only reason there is so much investment there, plus of course the personal cult of naming a sports complex or stadium after a reigning politician should already put the IOC of it, if the monsoon and Modi‘s hindu superior policy don‘t do the trick.

Let‘s hope by 2036, or even better already by the time the IOC decides, he and his authoritarian gang will be history already.

i dont think that it is the only reason.. you are looking as usual via your own glasses.. if you say that it is ONE of the reasons that would be more acceptable.. actually it is pure coincidentally that AHMEDABAD/GUJARAT REGION is his homebase..

its tottally to do with the fact that indias new economic wants to create a 1500 km long new industrial corridor (like the RHEIN-RHUR-GEBİET) from new delhi till mumbai AND ahmedabad is just in the middle of this corridor.. modi & co believe that with an eventual olympic games will boost & promote the region.. they want to create an indian shanghai/shenzen/ghuangzhou economic reagion BUT they miss the international sound/reflection/perception.. AHMEDABAD sound more mature in the ears btw then gujarat..

but this city has practically (or is missing) the anglo-saxon-cultural-heritage that Kolkata/Calcutta, Bangalore or Mumbai has.. its just not an interesting city.. its just that the indian perception of the olympic games is not correct translated in favor of their mega-economic INDUSTRIAL-CORRIDOR.. this is my opinion ofcourse after a simple research on google..

Ahmedabad is emerging as one of the new megacities of India. Many companies are moving to Ahmedabad from Mumbai.

That’s great and best wishes to the people of Ahmedabad.

But being in a vibrant and growing economic area is not going to magically make the July/August monsoon rains go away in any Olympic year.

The IOC are not going to hold an Olympics amongst monsoonal floods and there is no sign of them changing the July/August hosting rule.

Qatar for instance knows this all too well with their deadly heat in July/August.

Do they have an english counterpart name for the city? Really tough to launch on international medias

That is the English name and it's easy to pronounce.

Not the instability that the Indian Olympic Association would want and not a good look heading toward hosting the 140th IOC session in May, followed by possible continuous dialogue about a 2036 Summer Games candidature.

It’s sad for the people of India and Ahmedabad that with this postponement of the 140th IOC Session planned for Mumbai in May 2023 due to the possible suspension of the Indian Olympic Association due to their governance issues, a 2036 candidature from anywhere in India is under a huge cloud.

“With the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we have lost a great supporter of sport and the Olympic Movement.”

“Her Majesty was the only head of state to declare open two editions of the Olympic Games and was already present at the Olympic Games London 1948.”

“As patron of the British Olympic Association, she provided invaluable advice and help to the Olympic community.”

Uh, that´s a bit off topic. And kinda controversial to put it here considering of what she was queen in relation to the Indian Bid.

Yes, I posted it here by mistake.  But regular members cannot edit posts on Gamesbids.com.  My apologies.

Only “Premium Members” can edit posts.

Gamesbids.com has a bizarre, elitist, invitation-only “Premium Members” club where regular members cannot join and must be “invited”.  We cannot even “pay” to become a “Premium Member”.

Final warning issued by the IOC to the Indian Olympic Association.

 

So a bid from India for Ahmedabad 2036 now looks dead in the water due to the  critical governance issues plaguing the National Olympic Committee of India.

Further the IOC has postponed it’s planned full IOC Session which was to happen in Mumbai in May 2023 - an increasingly looking like India will lose the entire event to another country.
