Oh and even tug of freaking war getting a mixed event, f*ck me sideways  

Be furious with the virus.  And the people who allowed it to run rampant that caused all this mess.  Everything else is a function of that.  Not the Olympics' fault they had to move

Broadcast information, looks like they liked the 2017 strategy. I think we should expect almost identical coverage.

“The BOC and IWGA have engaged world-renowned International Sports Broadcasting (ISB) to provide host broadcasting services for The World Games 2021 Birmingham. The BOC and ISB have a joint meeting in October to discuss details about production hours, sport coverage and overall production planning.
As with The World Games 2017 Wroclaw, a 24/7 Channel will be available for the global distribution of The Games. In addition, international broadcasters will get the chance to pick up specific streams of sports that are popular in their countries. ISB will use up to eight OB vans for the production of the TV signal.
ISB will not only act as the production arm of The World Games 2021; they will take over the international marketing of the media rights too.
In addition, IWGA and ISB plan to continue to work with Olympic Channel to secure distribution of The World Games 2021 to all territories in the world.
IWGA will hold a media workshop for International Federations to inform them about requirements for the best TV production possible. IFs will have to identify a counterpart for the TV production team on-site at the competition venues. IFs will receive more information on this topic at the IWGA media workshop in November.”

Well at least they didn’t cut other disciplines to make room for it.


I would rather see groups in rhythmic gymnastics than parkour. I don't know why individual gymnasts are allowed to compete, but not groups. Maybe because of the number of gymnasts involved? 5 gymnasts per group plus coaches, officials and medical staff would require extra 60+ places to accommodate everyone.

Was doing some research today, and came across some fistball news. If the attached report is still correct, Fistball has seen major expansion. Men’s Tournament: 8 teams, and for the first time ever Women’s Tournament: 6 teams
