Quote Of The Day
“If the IOC thought the bidding process changes in its Agenda 2020 reforms would end the negativity about being a host of the Summer or Winter Games, it has been sadly mistaken. The frightening new financial projections about the cost of the 2020 Tokyo Summer Games and Rome’s withdrawal from the 2024 race on financial grounds make it clear the IOC still has a long way to go in convincing citizens of democracies that being a host of the ever-more-bloated Olympic Games is worth the time, money and hassle. … The IOC must think smaller, not bigger. … There is too much need for bread to indulge in gargantuan circuses.”
– Olympic writer Philip Hersh arguing that “radical change” is needed to reduce the financial burden of hosting the Olympics. Hersh suggests that the IOC should keep the Games in a rotation among previous and recent hosts rather than starting from scratch with a brand new city each time.
