Shanghai 2008? Anyway, is not US' fault of hosting too many Olympic Games just because other countries can't handle the Olympic Games in the same decade.

Arab World has opportunity to confront bigotry in America

This week, the Arab World will be participating in a vote that on its face may seem insignificant to the many problems that plague the Middle East but could begin a process of changing the United States.

The vote will take place Friday in Copenhagen where the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will decide which of four cities between Madrid, Tokyo, Rio and Chicago will win the right to host the Olympics in 2016.

Compared to the votes in the United Nations where the pro-Israel bloc continues to block peace, hold back the advances of the Arab World and continues to denigrate the rights of Islamic countries, the IOC vote Friday may seem insignificant.

In fact, though, the vote could begin a process not of changing the United Nations, but rather creating an opportunity to enact change in the United States, the one nation that holds the key to the future of the Middle East.

The IOC consists of 111 members, 12 of whom representative the Arab World from Kuwait, Lebanon, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, UAE, Egypt, Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia. Each country has one member on the IOC except Egypt and Morocco, which have participated the longest and most successful in past Olympic competitions, each have two members.

Those 12 Arab delegates can be the deciding factor in awarding the Olympics to Chicago.

Why is Chicago important? Unlike other nation’s competing for the Olympics, Chicago’s presentation is made by the city, not the country. Chicago officials beginning with its Mayor Richard M. Daley, have been lobbying to get President Barack Obama to make an appearance in Copenhagen to help swing the vote in Chicago’s favor.

As an American, I want the IOC to grant the 2016 Olympics to Chicago. But, as An American of Arab heritage, I also want the United States and Chicago to recognize their failure in respecting not only the principles of justice and fairness in the Middle East, but to end the practice and reality of the city’s discrimination against it’s citizens who are of Arab heritage.

In voting this week, the 12-member Arab delegation should use its power to condition their decision on how the winning city will respect its expatriate citizens.

That is a difficult thing to ask since none of the countries of the Arab World have ever recognized the real potential and the value that Americans of Arab heritage represent. The Arab World has always acted in a vacuum on Middle East issues believing that the decision-making process in American begins at the top levels of government.

The truth is, American power begins at the grassroots level. The “trenches” where American Arabs have been waging a long and difficult fight against discrimination for most of their existence in this nation.
Here we go again!

Rio de Janeiro cancels World Cup swimming event over lack of funding

ROME - A World Cup swimming event scheduled for Rio de Janeiro next month has been cancelled after organizers failed to come up with enough funding.



The announcement comes at a particularly delicate moment, with Rio competing against Chicago, Madrid and Tokyo in Friday's vote to host the 2016 Summer Olympics.

"There are no financial resources. They cannot find any funding. They say they cannot do it," Cornel Marculescu, the executive director of swimming governing body FINA, said Tuesday.

The World Cup page on FINA's website has a line crossing out the Rio meet, with the word "cancelled" printed twice.

Marculescu said Rio informed FINA of the decision "two or three weeks ago," adding that the Brazilian city has also pulled out of hosting World Cup events from 2010-13.

Marculescu refused to speculate if the cancellations would have any effect on the IOC vote.

"I only know about my own sport, and there will be no World Cup in Rio for the next four years," he said. "The Olympic Games is a different budget. Rio's proposals for aquatics venues are very good."

The move is also surprising because of interest generated after Cesar Cielo swept the 50-and 100-metre freestyle events in Rome a few months ago for Brazil's first gold medals in 27 years at a swimming world championship.

Belo Horizonte has hosted a World Cup event for the last several years, but the Brazilian federation wanted to move the meet to Rio to attract a better international field.

"Belo Horizonte is difficult to get to," Marculescu noted. "You have to change planes in Rio or Sao Paulo."

Without Rio, only five World Cup events will be held this year - in Durban, South Africa; Moscow, Stockholm, Berlin and Singapore.

From 2010-2013 there will be seven short-course meets - in Berlin, Stockholm, Moscow, Dubai and Singapore; and at sites to be determined in China and Japan

That has to be a morale downer for sure. If not, it should be.


Okay people, ever wondered why South America has never hosted? Try the fact that it could never compete with the industrialized world. That's the reason South America has not hosted. To ask for a sympathy vote is just so sad on the part of Rio; and that's exactly what this is. Some guilt trip that you must vote for poor South America, because we've never hosted. So what. Maybe if you took an example from Europe, parts of Asia, and North America, you could become a less crime-laden, volatile place. Honestly, this sympathy vote crap is old. I think Rio could pull it off in time for 2016, but JUST because it finally can does not mean an automatic vote. These other city's have been prepared and ready for years, and especially with Chicago, you have the backing of the most powerful nation on earth at the time. Why have we hosted so many games? Because our candidate city's have done excellent jobs, each and every one of them. NOT because they belong to the USA or North America. Chicago, all by itself, has an excellent plan, well funded, and will never flop. You will never get that guarantee from Rio. By the way, Rio has a huge listed of international events it's hosting. Is that honestly not good enough at the time? Try for 2020. Not because it's "unfair" that Rio has hosted so many events, but due to lack of funding. Rio has already started to slip, and it still has many more events to go, not including if it garners the vote of the IOC.

It is obvious that the "developed world" (Brazil is industrialized but it is not fully developed yet) would have hosted and dominated the olympics and most other things in the past but we are talking about 2016. Let's not forget that the IOC has given high marks to the Rio bid and that in addition to the sympathy vote, whether warranted or unwarranted, fair or unfair makes Rio a very serious contender. Rio's bid would not have made it this far otherwise so let's not underestimate them.

Didn't you pay any attention? the Olympics were held first in 1968 (Mexico city)& 1972 (Munich), then came the WCs.

The U.S played host to the 1994 FIFA WC, but Atlanta was not selected for the tournament.

Also, the Atlanta'96 Olympics were completely overshadowed by the WC event two years before that. It's unlikely the IOC will make the same mistake again.
