Well.......might as well put this thing to use now that there's some traction to it.  Id say beyond the rest of the pack, this actually could be the most favored candidate now?  Authoritarian leader who isnt quiiiiite putin, but will do all he can to throw out the red carpet for the IOC.  Maybe between Budapest and Istanbul now?

Hungary chances for the 2036 Olympics/Paralympics will be boosted by these coming blue ribbon 2023 World Athletics Championships, just as it was this year in hosting the widely acclaimed 2022 World Aquatics Championships.

 

That seems like an opportunity for them to catch up and could finally be awarded these games.

The Stadium and setting reminds me a bit of London 2012.

Stadium will only hold 36,000 for the world championships before it gets downsized to 14,000. While the IOC is open to smaller capacity venues I cannot imagine the IOC and World Athletics accepting 36,000 for their marquee Olympic event.

Of note, the stadium was originally going to seat somewhere between 50,000 and 60,000 for the world championships but it was deemed to cost prohibitive to downsize it from that size. Having said that, this is an ideal stadium for a world championships and should leave Hungary with a viable legacy.

I wonder if this stadium it has an expandable design ?   I believe London’s Olympic stadium did.

London's did unfortunately a couple local football clubs had other ideas.

Given the Budapest stadium's location directly next to the Danube, I doubt there's enough space to get it up to 50,000 for an Olympics. Then there's the question of legacy mode. Some renderings I've seen showing the stadium in legacy mode depict wider concourses with green space.

Furjes claims hosting World Athletics Championships will demonstrate Budapest "even more" capable of holding Olympics15Jan23 - Inside The Games

“Budapest was in the running for the 2024 Olympics only to withdraw its bid in 2017 following public opposition as Paris went on to secure the hosting rights.”

“The Hungarian capital has also bid for the event in 1916, 1920, 1936, 1944 and 1960 but its efforts have come to no avail.”

“Fürjes was chairman of the Budapest 2024 Bid Committee but believes the city is in a better position now to stage the Games.”

“Budapest has created the Duna Arena and Puskás Aréna and is set to add the 40,000-capacity National Athletics Centre that is due to host this year’s World Athletics Championships, starting on August 19 and concluding on August 27.
