TOKYO 1940 OLYMPIC REPORT

Thanks again to the lovely guys and gals at AAFLA - here is a nive little exclusive - not yet listed on the standard page for Olympic Reports, and only available by using the search engine - here is a sneak peak at what everyone will be able to download soon - the Tokyo 1940 Olympic Report!

Yes!  1940!

This report covers all the building and planning up until the Games were cancelled in the late 1930's!  Excellent and extremely rare!  Enjoy!

Wow, that was awesome!  They were quite far ahead in the planning when the Sino-Japanese war forced their abdication.  These would have been fascinating Games.

This is great!  :cool:

I had forgotton that Sapporo was supposed to host the WOG's as well in 1940.

The rendering of the stadium complex looks very similar to Berlin's Reichssportfeld

St Moritz 1948 Official Report -  French Version

Here is another goodie - it's the St Moritz 1948 Official Report - I'm afraid it's in French, but all us Francophones can enjoy it.  There are some interesting passages about the reformation of the Winter Games after World War 2 - well worth a look.

Thanks again to the lovely gals at AAFLA for the heads up!

Was just googling to see if Tokyo's 2020 bid logo was out yet ... and came across this instead. I'd never seen a poster for Tokyo 1940 before:
