Indonesia announce bid intentions for 2032 Olympic Games

After the 2018 Asian Games, it would probably still be a no from me

Good luck to them. I have heard of some problems, but for the most part it looks like they did a great job. However, empty stadiums will not do them any favours and they will need a much better results provider (I don't think they went with Atos, which does many major games)

As Indonesian I'd say NO.

 

Concerns:

- Venues

- Ticketing

- :ISR

Well if your country is drowning in a wave of religious conservatism, it is going to be full scale holy war if Hatikvah is played :lol: As the in effect de facto rule here, if you managed to get the papers and not get rejected despite fulfilling them, you have to compete without any hint of Israel.

 

I watched how complicated the whole process of Misha Zilberman trying to qualify to Rio 2016 in Badminton World Championships 2015. After a dramatic arrival (both sides blaming each other for making controversy), hardliner group members are ready to attack. The security used stalling tactics. Then the organizers inside switched his court to the one near the exit. One of the hardliner group member enters the arena, watching the original court empty without realizing Misha is playing at the other court. Then it was like "See? No Jews play here. Now get out".

Yeah as long as that isn't solved, it's probably better not to get the Olympics there... (or in any country that makes it outright impossible for people competing for a specific NOC to compete in a normal manner)

Probably will be a disaster, imho. They chose a country with absolutely no experience. The other three have the experience. 

Yeah, Nigeria made a great case for themselves this year.... :p 

 

And Botswana has experience?
