  1. I have learned German for a while and I catch a few words.. Nice one "Kein Dictator!"
  2. So after 74 days, let's have a bit of update on BWF event bidding candidates: Thomas/Uber Cup (Men's and women's team WC) 2018: Bangkok and New Delhi World championships 2018: Nanjing (sole bidder) Sudirman Cup (Mixed team WC) 2019: Nanning, yes Nanning not Nanjing (sole bidder ) World championships 2019: Tokyo and Basel Basically everyone is so afraid of Chinese venue collections and stayed off from bidding in that events And it looks like all those events will be in Asia, since it is very likely for BWF to award WBC 2019 to Tokyo for Olympic test event. Unless an European (or other continent) country bids for the World Junior Championships (TBD later this year), we won't see any badminton major events outside Asia until 2020. A reverse condition from 2015-2017 bidding where it managed to spread to Pan Am and Oceania
  3. That will be really, really bad
  4. For me this is pretty simple. Imagine this: If you want to have a birthday party in your house with your friends, no one will really care because it is your business and happens in your place (unless you shoot fireworks to your neighbor's house). But if you want to have one in your friend's house, have you make sure his/her parents agree with that? Can you make sure that the house will still stand after the party? Well I'm aware about the politics in this case is somehow complicated, but prevention is better than cure.
  5. Olympic bidders nowadays are around this type: Developed countries which whine about the cost Political agenda seasoned bids which originate from countries with unstable politics Extremely "rich" countries or a country that really want to host so bad in order to show their "development" "Mediocre" countries which want to host but unable to guarantee how will they deliver the games and what will happen after the Games It is really saddening to see the Olympic bids had gone to state like this.... Are there any countries which want to bid solely for the spirit of sports? (none ofc ) How many times will East Asian country act as "Bangkok" of the Olympics?
  6. Many countries are preparing for 2028... It's a pity if we can't see their idea becoming a reality.. And we also don't want the appointed 2028 host suddenly go mad (due to politics or whatever) and withdrew in 2025 or 2026
  7. Pretty sad in women's figure skating.. Almost everyone in the first batch touched the ice (including ours...)
  8. Just wondering if @#MA has changed his song since it was from 2015? Or we need @bestmen to speak to him in Arabic/French?
  9. Asian Winter Games Opening Ceremony to be streamed at Olympic Channel The official website will also provide streaming for the events (detail TBA).. https://sapporo2017.org/site/news-en/enstreaming.html

  11. Oh my god Well we know the phrase Vox populi, vox dei
  12. And I am still secretly hoping that they will change their logo ----- * | | -----
  13. is going to participate in its 2nd contest (must look for Indonesian songs that I barely listened again... )
  14. Not sure about Cambodia though... Volleyball? I believe that they like football/martial arts more compared to volleyball, but who knows..
