No losing city in this year’s bid for 2024 Summer Olympic Games

Posted in Explosive News and Results with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 12, 2017 by vincentloy

The voting for the host city of 2024 Summer Olympic Games will take place on this coming September. Only two cities are remaining in the bid; Paris and Los Angeles. In an extraordinary International Olympic Committee Session held yesterday, the committee approved a decision to award the games to both cities, one in 2024 and another one in 2028.

So, there wouldn’t be any losing city in this year’s bid for the games. If a city receives lesser number of votes in the voting, it will still host the games, but that would be the next edition (4 years later) than originally intended. That’s certainly good news for both Paris and Los Angeles. I have to admit both cities are more than capable to host this world’s largest international multi-sport event.

Which city do you think will get the 2024 games? My personal choice would be Paris. If I’m not mistaken, Paris has submitted bid a number of times in the last few editions of the games but lost every time. I remembered the city lost to London for 2012 games by only a few votes. The last time that Paris has hosted the games was in 1924. If Paris win the right to host 2024 games, it will be coincidentally marking 100th anniversary since the last Olympics in the city. I also like the simplicity of its logo showing the number ’24’ that also designed to resemble their iconic Eiffel Tower.

Check out their bidding’s presentation clips below:

Paris 2024

Los Angeles 2024

So my choice is Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028. This means that those cities which intend to bid for 2028 games has to drop out their plan and bid for 2032 games instead. I think this move will make the bidding for 2032 games to be more intense and exciting as more cities are expected to join the race by then. A joint bid by Malaysia and Singapore is explored and is possible for the 2032 games’ bid. I would love to see that but I think our chance is pretty low. It will be hard to resolve on many issues when more than one country is involved in a single games. Malaysia and Singapore have not even hosted Asian Games before (although Malaysia has hosted Commonwealth Games and Singapore has hosted Youth Olympic Games). I can only elaborate further on our chance if the joint bid is confirmed, and that is long way to go.

My comment:

Best actor …should goes to Ha Yu (Moonlight Resonance)…his acting is great all the ways from depression to enjoyable times in this series…

Best actress….should goes to Michelle Yim (Moonlight Resonance)…she acted so villainly and showing off all her evilness perfectly…her emotions and expressions are great!

Favourite male….a lot of people likes Raymond Lam(Moonlight Resonance)….ok..he can win…he acted quite good too as “Gun Gar Jai”.

Favourite female….should goes to Louise Lee (Moonlight Resonance), Susanna Kwan (Moonlight Resonance)…i prefer Lee Sze Kei…she acted perfectly…i like her character pretty much… Maybe Liza Wang (Wars of in Laws 2) can win too…Charmaine Sheh (Forensic Heroes 2) got the chance too…

other awards…not much comment..anybody that deserve should win…

Tavia Yeung..i wonder why she is still included in improved category…she is not new anymore..Kate Tsui improved a lot and acted a number of series…now she win over Tavia….she is included in the Best Actress award..cool

In The Four, there are four main male characters (Raymond Lam, Kenneth Ma, Sammul Chan and Ron Ng), Raymond Lam included in list through Moonlight Resonance, Kenneth Ma through Survivors Law 2, Sammul Chan..missing in Survivors Law and The Four, Ron Ng…the only one representing The Four in the list. A bit unfair to Sammul Chan who acted far more better than Ron, more experience, more appearance in series, and more handsome honestly…haha. Maybe because Sammul is not in the list as he is not signed fully to TVB contract.

Best Drama….of course Moonlight Resonance…everybody loves it…it is a fantastic series…last time i am dying to watch every episodes of it!

hope TVB will give the awards to those who really deserve it!
