I don't give a shit about Canada's first velodrome or swimming nose plugs, I want to see some Canadians performing in the olympics!

^Failed you for bumping a 1 year old thread with a 6 month old article.

I just got back from Rio and while I didn't tour the Olympic sites, I did see some of the legacy of the games. The metro is pretty good considering the city's reputation huge trains and the stations are clean and well signed. Tourist map signs are now everywhere and it's easy for non-Portuguese speaking visitors to way-find around. I never visited before this, but from other people's anecdotes crime is much reduced and the streets are cleaned up quite a bit from prior to the Olympics.

There's more to Olympic legacy than empty stadiums. Shit happens. They said the same thing about Beijing and Sochi, heck even Vancouver. They'll keep saying it until Cities with big egos stop bidding for the Owe-lympics.


But seriously...The Daily Mail...? Seriously.

Just saw the images on TSN now and found that article had good comparison pics... Failed right back for Judge Judy behaviour.

I was gonna thank him cuz he used the search function instead of making a whole new thread.

Out of curiosity, what "wasted ruins" does Vancouver have from its olympics MG1? All I can think of is the torch barely being lit (it should be on all the fucking time) and there was some controversy about the Olympic village or wtv apartments and selling those off. The oval is thriving, the Canada line is a huge success. The sea to sky is a beautiful highway to drive now. What were the huge failures?

Edit: genuine question, not being a smartass

I didn't say Vancouver was a failure. I meant that people (the media, news articles) were saying it was going to be a failure. It clearly wasn't. Sorry for the confusion.

I think thats partly a result of building mega Olympic parks for the Olympics. It seems like such a cool idea building all brand new venues and having them all together in one big mega complex, but once things go back to real life, they end up unused and out of the way. Vancouver did it right by building city amenity buildings (like the oval) in places that made sense spread around the city in places to house events that would continue to be used after the games were over. Whatever your feelings on the Olympics are, Vancouver was one of the few cities that actually did it right from a future use, legacy, and economic standpoint.

sydney, socchi, rio, etc all did it and as far as i know, most of them are unused now.
