Winter Olympic Games 2026

Recommended Posts

If you only take events that existed at the 1988 Olympics (before all these "newer" events came), Canada would have still won 8 medals, 10 if you allowed the female counterparts in bobsled and ice hockey. Sure we'd drop a few spots, but we'd still be a top 10 nation rather than a top 5.

IOC is corrupt so this result is expected.

I don’t get how people see this as a corrupt decision. The IOC went with the safest option, which is completely understandable given their current situation.

 

Milan just had a good bid.

Olympics is business. Professional sports is business. China & the oil-power countries can afford to invest money without looking at revenue, hell, China has followed diplomacy thru sports for decades. Europe has suffered an economical nosedive in the last decade and people are unwilling to spend public money on Olympics anymore. It's not viewed as a window to the world anymore unlike some of these Middle East or Far East countries that basically hosted nothing in the XX century. Qatar & China are piling money into hosting big events in particular, the Western world is counting every penny instead. Even the Nordic ain't doing much and in some traditional winter sport countries there is no public support for this at all. So we get the snowy land of China instead, I can almost foresee how repulsive the alpine skiing venues will be there.

I don't agree at all...:finger:

 

sure it wasn't the best edition ever, but what about Albertville, Nagano and Pyeongchang? (not to mention what awaits us in Beijing?) :facepalm:

I am just merely quoting the now-inactive Sport Reference...

Well the club managers announced otherwise today. San Siro is set to be demolished soon, and the new venue will sit on a nearby area.

Without the approvation of the Comune di Milano, the owner of the San Siro stadium, they can't do nothing ;)
