And as for the Australian Bolt-centric coverage, well, I think as far as the Aussie media has been concerned this year, the only people at the Games are Bolt, Phelps, a bunch of under-performing Aussies, some shadowy Kiwis who've been doing OK, and some shadowy Brits who initially sucked but then dominated, especially at the velodrome. Anybody else? Naaahhh. I think it's a disgrace that I didn't see the Aussie media report at all on Mahé Drysdale's gold, surely one of the most inspirational of the Games.
Fuck. I knew you'd be gloating.

I'm pissed off anyway at the athlete.

Not sure "Love it" constitutes as anything more than being happy that his country of origin now has one more gold medal than it did yesterday.

Sounds like we're planning to bid for 2024 or 2028, which is great news. We are the sporting capital of the world as well as the world's most liveable city!

I was under the impression the Australian Olympic Committee wanted the next Aussie bid to host the Olympics to be Brisbane, rather than Melbourne or Sydney again. I hope that never happens.

And hahaha, Adelaide moves ahead of Sydney. Deserves it too. Awesome city.

Oh it's really just a HS beat-up. They just called a bunch of important people and asked them about it, there was no announcement or anything.

Coates says Brisbane will be the next one because they have the best climate when the IOC wants to host in the future, in July.

Interesting that we may bid for 2024. Probably a bit too soon after our neighbours in Sydney held it just half a dozen Olympiads previously. And my main opposition to Madrid 2020 is that it is too soon after Barcelona, so I would be a hypocrite to say that we were justified to host it.

Melbourne would host a perfect Olympics and I'm still dirty that we didn't get 96 and Atlanta were somehow considered a more worthy candidate.

Istanbul will hopefully have their patience rewarded and host 2020 after bidding for like 5 Summer Olympics in a row, but 2024 is anyone's guess? North America will probably put forward a strong candidate, Western Europe (Paris) and Asia (Japan, Delhi, oil cities) will probably throw in some strong bids and Africa will be the final frontier if the IOC wanna go where no
Olympics has gone before.

Should be interesting to see what happens, but the IOC have been admirable in their distribution of Summer Olympics from Sydney 2000. Better than FIFA!

I hope we get 2024 even if we are bidding or not. It's not that far away. Holy shit I'll be 37.

Me too. It would be the best Olympics ever.

Antwerp was a toilet.

... aaaand that's about all Brisbane has to offer. Seriously, can you imagine the Games being opened by Joh Bjelke-Pietersen Campbell Newman Joh Bjelke-Pietersen and the white shoe brigade?

I'd just about surrender my Australian citizenship out of embarrassment.

Let's hold it in Perth instead. It'll be the first thing that's ever happened there outside of Polly Farmer and Nic Naitanui. Give them something to jump up and down about that isn't related to "you eastern states bludging off our mineral wealth" ... speaking of which, they can use that to pay for the Olympics too!

I love stuff like that, very adorable. I hope Redhill doesn't get pissed because the kid didn't give him a medal, too.

Dude, no one likes a person who goes around correcting people. Do you know how annoying that can be?
