Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Not really It was the city I wanted to win from the beginning. Spain is a mess thanks to our shitty politicians and all the crap that this country is getting all the time is only due to them, so as long as people keep voting for these fucktards we won't deserve the Olympics

A much better choice than Istanbul. I'm very satisfied with this.

Re: Tokyo to host 2020 Olympics!

Only logical choice. I'd have liked Istanbul but the recent riots and stuff probably cost them.

The Dr Fuentes mess and blood bag destruction quite rightly made the Madrid bid a non-starter.

Re: Tokyo to host 2020 Olympics!

Tokyo is a great place and i have no doubt that the games will be great but i wish turkey would have won it from a few reasons

1- Tokyo is very expansive so any hope i had to see OG died the moment i saw who won
2- turkey is closer therefor better time zones
3- turkey never hosted the OG
4- turkey is the first country to try 5 times to host the games and lose..


best of luck tokyo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Tokyo to host 2020 Olympics!

The fate of the Olympic wrestling will be decided within the next hour. Other candidtates for the last spot are squash and baseball/softball.

I think it would be a travesty if wresling were dropped from the games. Otherwise I'd like squash to get to the games, it's an old, traditional sport without a ch'ship that gets much worldwide attention. Olympics would would be that kind of a ch'ship for squash.

Wrestling retained its Olympic status. A right decision if you ask me.

Re: Tokyo to host 2020 Olympics!

Cogratulations to Tokyo on getting the 2020 Olympics. Would have liked Istanbul, but I do not doubt that Tokyo will be able to organise these games excellently. Good to see wrestling remain on the olympic program.
