Construction of the new National Stadium, which will serve as the main venue for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, is currently underway. A scale model and mock-ups of various parts of the stadium have been unveiled to the media: these showcase many of its charming features, such as eaves that allow breezes to pass through and seats designed around the concept of sunlight filtering through a forest. This new stadium will provide athletes with a tremendous stage on which to compete in 2020!
You can see the photos of the scale model and mock-ups here.
The Barcelona 1992 Olympic Games are widely regarded as one of the most successful ever. Throughout 2017, 25 years later, we look back at the Games that forever changed Barcelona. (see all posts in this series)
Part 29 – Barcelona 1992; Port Olímpic
The Port Olímpic hosted the sailing events for the 1992 Summer Olympic Games.
The reformed Candidature Process for the 2026 Olympic Winter Games consists of two phases:
Dialogue Stage (September 2017 – October 2018)
The aim of the Dialogue Stage is to allow Interested Cities and NOCs to explore hosting opportunities and benefits on a collaborative basis together with the IOC. At the same time, it enables the IOC to gain an understanding of the key opportunities and risks of Interested Cities before inviting them to develop a comprehensive candidature concept and file.
The aim of the Candidature Stage is to ensure the development of the best possible value propositions and robust Games delivery plans aligned with the Candidate Cities’ existing long-term development plans. Throughout the Candidatures Stage cities will work with the IOC to increase the value proposition of their Games delivery plans. This includes the development of a Games/Legacy plan aligned with the Candidate Cities’ existing long-term development plans, the submission of the Candidature File as described above, an analysis by the International Olympic Winter Sports Federations, IOC Technical Expert pre-visits and support and visits by the Evaluation Commission.
In 2020, Tokyo will host the XXXII Olympic Summer Games. The city also hosted the 1964 Olympics. Over the next three years we’ll explore this fascinating and hectic metropolis in a serie of blog posts. Topics include: urban sprawl, architecture and infrastucture.
