Osaka 2008 Bid


Recommended Posts


finally I found all the bid books of the 2008 Bid in a printed version and (thanks to Troy and Jeremie) we do have them in the Online Bid Library as well. I now have all the Bid Books, but OSAKA 2008 is still missing.

I dont know anything detailed on their plans and I am very interested in the Sports Concept, Transportation, Olympic Village and Environment.

Does anyone know where to find this Bid Book in a printed version or does someone have a copy he/ she doesn`t need anymore? I am deeply interested in the printed version and want to complete my collection.

Thanks for your help.

P.S.: PDF would be great too

Sorry Thomas.

Troy and I are trying to get a pdf version of it but haven't been successful so far.

I have got it so maybe someday I'll try to scan it but it's going to take a while.

If you want to read it, you can go to the Olympic Museum in Lausanne or maybe even in the German Sports Museum in Köhln.

Good luck.
