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

Athens to host 138th IOC session in 2025 (where the 2032 Summer Olympics host will be decided)

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.

1998, 2000, 2002, 2006, 2008 hosts have all gotten a second games after hosting. Only leaves 2004 (which ain't happening anytime soon) and 2010 hosts. Is 2030 going to Vancouver if the pattern holds lol? 

 

(Personally I hope not)

Hosting another games in Vancouver 20 years later isn't exciting (and it sure hurts the chances of Canada hosting the summer games for quite a while), but from the IOC's POV it's hard for me to see a better bid than Vancouver or Calgary for 2030. It's a safe pair of hands, most of the venues are already there and it doesn't run into the issue of the country just having hosted (which is why I'm not bullish on Salt Lake City 2030 as anything other than a last resort).
