Aloha Olympics?

April 5, 2013 at 8:10 am Leave a comment

Riding in on a wave of popularity or should that be appeal, to host the 2024 Olympic Games is Hawaii.

Although the Pacific island has not officially announced that it will be lodging a bid, they are said to be contemplating one. Many believe that the island is ideally placed to host such an event, but one has to wonder what the legacy will be in terms of the stadium use once the Olympic Circus leaves town. There is no doubt it would be incredibly popular with competitors and spectators and most likely the IOC.

When Manchester lost out on its bid to host the games to Sydney Sir Bob Scott the head of the bid accused the British of not getting behind the bid and then allegedly said that they would prefer the games to be hosted ‘on some exotic island.’ He may soon find out if that really is the case.
