Lots of debate about the olympic stadium plans at the moment. Originals plans were for a complicated retractable roof system which they now realise will go way over budget. Spending close to a billion does seem a bit much when the country already has huge debts.

As I missed 2012, I'd like to still be here for this. Although that would mean I'd been living here for 12 years by then which is a little scary.

squash should definately be in there

Less swimming, if one chap can win 7 gold medals then the events are too simular.

I'm guessing that's Karate Kid style point fighting rather than full contact Karate? with boxing moving closer to the pro sport there seems like there could be room for something like K-1 style kickboxing that would allow various Karate and Muay Thai fighters to face each other.

Postponed until next year.

The major stakeholders in this year's Tokyo Olympics denied on Friday a news report that the Japanese government has privately concluded the games will have to be canceled due to the coronavirus and that the host nation is seeking to host them in 2032, the next available year.

Japan, the International Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee each issued a denial of a report in British daily The Times.

TOKYO -- The new president of the Tokyo Olympic organizing committee stopped short of saying there would be no foreign fans at this year's Games, but she certainly hinted at it Wednesday after online talks with IOC president Thomas Bach and others.

The Japanese newspaper Mainichi reported Wednesday that the decision had already been made to exclude foreign fans. It cited only unnamed sources "involved in the discussions.''

The question of allowing any fans into Tokyo Olympic venues is still being debated with a decision unlikely to be announced before the end of the month.

This would be just a few weeks before the Olympics are to open on July 23. Fans from abroad have already been banned in what is shaping up as a largely made-for-television Olympics.

Tokyo and several prefectures are under a state of emergency until June 20. Infections have slowed recently, but the spread of variants is still a concern that could put pressure on already stressed medical facilities.

Dr. Nobuhiko Okabe, director general of the Kawasaki City Institute for Public Health, suggested on Friday he would lean toward few fans. He spoke on a panel put together by the Tokyo Olympic organizing committee.

The organizing committee also said it will not distribute condoms to participants during their stay in the village but on their departure

The Tokyo Olympics kicked off today, will end up being the strangest Olympics after the St Louis one, I'm sure. If you guys want to have some side interest on the Games, head over to the Olympics Betting Masters comp. https://www.cpfc.org/forums/showthread.php?t=284247

Can't listen to Andrew Cotter now without picturing his dogs :D

Gosh, this is dull!

I thought I was going insane when I recognised final fantasy music in the ceremony. Then I heard chrono trigger, and as it turns out, there’s a whole set list of video game music.

I love the athlete's parade but I forget how long it is every time! We will still be here in 2024 at this rate.
