  1. ‘The Games will go ahead’: Coates shuts down talk of Tokyo cancellation * * * * * * * * * * * * We’ve spent the first half of last year identifying all the worse-case scenarios, we’ve spent the next six months looking at the counter measures. We’re implementing those countermeasures, they have all been predicated on no vaccines. That situation has improved, the Games are going ahead. * * * * * * * * * * * * * There are no hypotheticals, there is no Plan B. The Tokyo Olympics are going ahead come July 23, according to John Coates, as the IOC backs its COVID protocols and vacci
  2. The Tokyo Games are going ahead in a unique Olympic Bubble which they have been preparing meticulously for 12 months for on the basis of NO VACCINE being available. The fact there is now a vaccine available is a is a bonus for the organisers. The Games are going ahead in Tokyo in 75 days time, as planned. A petition is not going to change anything. The Japanese Prime Minister just said last week to the US President that the Games are going ahead as planned in Tokyo. The Japanese Organising Committee just said it. T
  3. Actually, under the IOC New Norm rules, the old 7-year-prior election no longer happens. It is widely expected that the 2032 Summer Olympics Host (Brisbane/South East Queensland) will be voted on this coming July 2021 at the IOC Session in Tokyo.
  4. Actually, it’s the opposite of that. Brisbane has been front-runner for 3 solid years now by a long way. Nothing at all has “suddenly happened”. Literally hundreds of media announcements, bid announcements, government media releases at all 3 levels of government, IOC visits, feasibility studies, mass people movement study, value proposition report, etc etc and all followed and reported by the media. 6 years in the making The history of Brisbane/SEQ’s 2032 Bid AOC - Australian Olympic Committee IOC - In
  5. Brisbane/SEQ - highly advanced bid and has full government support at all three levels of government, - has the majority support of Queensland’s citizens. - Brisbane/SEQ has exclusive Preferred Bidder status over all other bidders. - now completing final paperwork before IOC votes them in as the Hosts at the 138th IOC Session this July in Tokyo. - COVID circuit breaker choice for 2032 - they are so far in front and have been so for the last 3 years and no-one will catch them now before the Final Vote in 4 months time in July South/North Korea - been asleep
  6. As you can see above, Brisbane/SEQ 2032 has been very public and made so many announcements for six years, especially over the last 3 years. Literally hundreds of Brisbane/SEQ 2032 media announcements, media conferences, media interviews, newspaper repirts,feasability studies, etc etc - it has all been very public, don’t worry. You only need to google each step of their progress over the last six years. The media has followed it every step of the way.

  8. Here is a good run-through of these IOC changes to the selection process: NEW APPROACH TO FUTURE HOST ELECTIONS THE REVOLUTIONARY NEW APPROACH TO ELECTING HOSTS FOR OLYMPIC GAMES AND YOUTH OLYMPIC GAMES RESULTS IN SIGNIFICANT COST SAVINGS FOR POTENTIAL HOSTS, AS WELL AS MORE SUSTAINABLE PROJECTS AND MASTERPLANS. THE REFORMS ENSURE THE IOC REMAINS IN STEP WITH A RAPIDLY CHANGING WORLD TO DELIVER GAMES THAT ARE BETTER ALIGNED WITH FUTURE HOSTS’ LONG-TERM DEVELOPMENT PLANS WHILE MAINTAINING THE INHERENT MAGIC OF THE GAMES AND PROVIDING THE BEST POSSIBLE EXPERIENCE FOR
  9. The modern Olympic movement has undergone the biggest changes in Host City/Region selection in it’s history. Its called Agenda 2020 (2014), New Norm (2018) and Agenda 2020+5 (2021). Very big changes to the selection process and announced to the world. No secret here. Although yes I’m Australian, I am very glad that Brisbane/SEQ 2032 grasped these changes very quickly after they were announced and has been very busy ever since literally sprinting to the finish line, which I’m glad they have almost reached with the 138th IOC Session in Tokyo expect
