FISU proposed Seoul-Pyongyang to rescue the falling apart 2021 Summer Universiade. Their original backup plan was.... Turkmenistan.

I have no doubt that Turkmenistan would hold it, and make it awesome. We would just have a bunch of fake fans again

The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games organising committee have announced the final list of sports and venues for the Games. The major change compared to Gold Coast 2018 is that Beach Volleyball, Shooting and 5x5 Basketball have been dropped and replaced by Judo, Basketball 3x3 and Wheelchair Basketball

 

These are the sports:

  • Aquatics - Diving, Swimming (Para)
  • Athletics (Para)
  • Badminton
  • Basketball 3x3
  • Boxing
  • Cycling - Track (Para), Mountain Bike, Road
  • Field Hockey
  • Gymnastics - Artisitc, Rhythmic
  • Judo
  • Lawn Bowls
  • Netball
  • Rugby Sevens
  • Squash
  • Table Tennis
  • Triathlon (Para)
  • Weightlifting (Powerlifting)
  • Wheelchair Basketball 3x3
  • Wrestling

The venues for the games will be spread within Birmingham and the West Midlands region, with only 1 venue (London Olympic Velodrome) falling outside of the West Midlands.

  • The Birmingham city centre venues include the National Exhibition Centre and attached Genting Arena, Birmingham Arena, Symphony Hall and Victoria Square.
  • Other Birmingham venues include University of Birmingham, Alexander Stadium, Villa Park Stadium.
  • The West Midlands venues include the planned Sandwell Aquatics Centre, Coventry Arena, Royal Leamington Spa Bowls Club, Sutton Coldfield Park, Cannock Chase.

I'm impressed by this plan, mainly as only 1 venue (Sandwell Aquatics Centre) will have to be newly built and other venues will be upgraded at the University and Alexander stadium which will become a stadium worthy of being the home of British Athletics. It's a shame Shooting was unable to make the program, the National Shooting Centre is in Surrey and had been proposed but it is a few hours drive away, but since it is only an optional sport the Gommonwealth Games Federation surely saw it's exclusion coming!

I think they just don't want it because there will be no belt wrestling and all those Turkic themed sports. They aren't AZE and KAZ who have good athletes

Oh actually I wouldn’t mind it going to Baku, they’ve done a stellar job with the European and Islamic Solidarity Games

If by "stellar" you mean completely empty streets during road races, then sure. :p

So Indonesia should be the best venue for road races, since some random women brought some pans and pots to support every cyclist in Asian Games :lol:
