Tokyo did exactly what it needed to do. It was fun and distanced itself from Beijing. Nail on head in general.

Did you watch all five last time Rob? Can you remember anything about the presentations or how they differ from these?

"Tokyo 2016 has finished their presentation. The Prime minister was there. Instead of showing emotion they said they had great spirit."

Great Spirit Despite Lack of Emotion
Friday, October 2, 2009 5:22am EDT GB Editor
Font size:

Tokyo made the second presentation to IOC members, at 10:30 AM local time in Copenhagen. Following is a summary.

A fifteen year-old girl, gymnast, speaking in English, took the stage first.

"I'm not a head of state", she says.

She described, with images, climate change, discrimination, doping and challenges in the world of sport. 

Japanese International Olympic Committee member Chiharu Igaya intoduces new Prime Minister of Japan and others on the panel.

Newly-elected Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama took the stage.

"We really can make the world a better place, such is the magic of the Olympic Games." he said.

He described great efforts by the bid to impact world environmental concerns.

A video was shown describing Japan's efforts in the Olympic movement over the past 100 years, including the 1964 Tokyo Games.

Shintaro Ishihara, Governor of Tokyo, spoke about development in his region and cooperation with the Olympics.

Ichiro Kono, Chairman and CEO of Tokyo 2016 took the podium.

"When Japanese people make a promise, we deliver."

"You've asked us to show more emotion."

"But we are full are spirit! We will deliver everything we say."

In French, the Kono spoke about public opinion in Tokyo - he said the evaluation visit was showed on major TV networks and since the IOC poll, public support has gone beyond 80%.

Japanese athletes, speaking in french and english, described the venue plans for the bid complete with visuals.

Yuko Arakido promised to teach athletes and visitors to the Tokyo Games karaoke.

Paralympian Junichi Kawai further described venues and commented on their accessibility - he described his dreams for the Games with great emotion.

Koji Murofushi, Tokyo 2016 Executive Board member presented more venue information.

Mikako Kotani, Tokyo 2016 Athletes Commission, described the goal of "setting the stage for athletes".

She presented a video showing the Games being staged in the center of "the largest city in the world". It described technology, the environment and visitor experience.

Tokyo 2016 Vice President Tsunekazu Takeda took the podium described the Games support for athletes and NOC's. He offered the IOC his committment to work under their leadership.

"Please give us the opportunity to host these Games - I ask this from my heart." Takeda said.

Kono took the stage again to discuss goals for anti-doping and peace in sport. He described uniting the youth of the world through the Olympics.

A video was presented showing young people around the world participating in sports.

Shun-ichiro Okano, Executive Board mamber made a short statement asking for support from the IOC along with Kono.

The floor was opened for questions.

Kono addressed a question about public support, reiterating that the rate has risen to over 80%

Kono also answered a question from Prince Albert of Monaco regarding the size of the land for the Olympic Village. He said he believed that it exceeded the requirements of the IOC.

The meeting was adjourned.

I find it very interesting that they chose precisely Fernando Meirelles for the videos. In a somewhat unanticipated way, with his City of God, he’s responsible for truly exposing Rio’s violence and misfortunes to the world. Most foreigners do believe Rio is just like in the movie. And now Meirelles has the perfect opportunity to get to terms with that, showing the best side of Rio. We shouldn’t expect less than what he made in City of God, but the other way around.

Unfortunately, I cannot watch the presentation, so I trust on you to comment on it!

I've put £5 on Madrid to win it at 12-1. Nice little outside bet there.

Decent opening speech. Not great, but not bad at all. A level start for Rio.
