Brisbane close to winning the bid for 2032 Summer Olympics – SportsMint Media

Published

on


After being advanced to the final stage of the process by the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) executive board, Brisbane is set to be confirmed as the host city for the 2032 Summer Olympics. The executive board reached a decision following a report by the Future Host Commission, which just completed a full examination of the Brisbane 2032 initiative. The IOC members might name Brisbane as the host city for the 2032 Olympics as early as next month. IOC members will vote on the plan at the 138th session of the Board of Governors in Tokyo on July 21st, just before the commencement of the 2020 Olympics on July 23.

IOC president Thomas Bach said, “Sport is seen by many governments around the world as essential to the long-term development of their countries and regions. The Brisbane 2032 Olympic project shows how forward-thinking leaders recognise the power of sport as a way to achieve lasting legacies for their communities.”

Using 84 percent of current and temporary venues is one of the primary components of the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic program plan. The additional venues will be completed significantly ahead of schedule and regardless of the Games to fulfill the needs of the area’s rapidly rising population.

The organisers have received tremendous support from all three levels of government, the Australian populace, and the commercial sector, and have articulated a commitment to sustainable development and climatic conditions, and athlete-centric Games.

If Brisbane is confirmed as the host city for the 2032 Summer Olympics, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has promised that the government will cover half the cost. The federal government’s investment is likely to be in the billions of dollars, much beyond its $116 million commitment to the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.The IOC says it will remain open to ‘exploratory, non-committal continuing engagement with stakeholders as part of its revamped, more focused and sharing information to future host venues.

Athletics-Berry calls on athletes to seek change in their communities

Published

on

EUGENE, Oregon (Reuters) – With a raised right fist, American hammer thrower Gwen Berry on Thursday reinforced her quest for social change.

“I want to impact the world,” Berry, wearing an “Activist Athlete” T-shirt, told reporters after qualifying sixth for Saturday’s final at the U.S. Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon.

“There are a lot of things going on that are bigger than sport. As athletes we can and should use our voices to bring awareness to issues that affect our communities.”

Berry did just that at the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, raising her fist when the U.S. national anthem was played during her medal ceremony.

She was suspended for 12 months by the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) because of International Olympic Committee rules that ban protests and demonstrations.

The USOPC in March, though, said that athletes competing in the U.S. Olympic trials can protest, including kneeling or raising a clenched fist on the podium or at the start line during the national anthem.

“Our communities are under attack,” said Berry, a 31-year-old mother. “I want to continue even after I’m a hammer thrower.”

Her protest came four days after world 200 metres champion Noah Lyles had raised his left fist that was enclosed in a fingerless glove before the start of the men’s 100m final.

“Black lives matter,” Lyles said. “I felt like it was important that I throw up some symbol. I’ve done it before and I’m going to continue to do it.”

35 Laugh Out Loud Clippers Memes | Sports Takes & News | TooAthletic.com

The Clippers are a team that has always been in the shadow of the Los Angeles Lakers. Even when the Clippers have produced great teams, they have not been able to get over the hump to win a title. Some say the Clippers may be cursed, but I don’t believe it. I do think the Clippers time is coming, and now that they have Kawhi Leonard and Paul George on their squad, that time may be sooner than later. To celebrate how far the Clippers have come to finally becoming relevant, I have pulled out the memes. Here are 35 laugh out loud Clippers memes.
