Yes, funny how nobody cries over the truly racist organization of Saint Louis 1904.   Yes, the 1936 were shadowed by Nazi propaganda; so were the 1968 with the Tlatelolco massacre, the 1980

Here are the first two parts of a series of articles I've written on the 1980 Moscow Olympics.  https://theolympians.co/2020/07/19/the-1980-moscow-olympics-part-1-the-american-boycott/ https://th

Olympics at Sports Reference got closed today.   I can't help but feel responsible because I asked for one correction yesterday and perhaps reminded them about their intent to close the site

The IOC will undoubtedly face criticism about a lack of transparency since John Coates, head of the Australian Olympic Committee and a close ally of the IOC President Thomas Bach, chaired a working group in 2019 that examined changing the process for selecting a host city for 2032.

Bach also raised the possibility of kicking weightlifting off the program.

Heard this before. How often can you hear the same bullshit and still buy it? China won the weightlifting medal table at the last FIVE Olympics and we all know Bach and IOC won't do anything to hurt China. C'mon, you ought to know better at this stage :p

It's more likely the IOC takes over weightlifting like it did with boxing.

 

There is no "professional weightlifting" that sucks all the talent out of the Olympics pool though. The thing with boxing is that all the teenagers from USA, UK, Latin American countries are lured by the big pro contracts and don't need Olympic medals anymore. World Amateur Boxing championships are dominated by Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Cuba lately so by countries that get zero love from IOC to begin with. The cold war USA vs The East in amateur boxing is long extinct.

Yep, press conference to kick off a busy week that includes IOC EB Meeting and an IOC Session (137th I believe).
