The Olympics should be hosted by two cities and only two cities. One for the summer games and another for winter. All OC's can contribute to the cost of construction and maintenance.

I feel like the only things standing in the way of this common sense solution is the massively corrupt IOC and politicians trying to puff out their chests.


The only issue with this solution is that the home team would have a large advantage for training but that's something I could live with.

I don't pay attention to the Olympics anymore. Pretty much stopped watching decades ago. Kind of an annoyance seeing Facebook stories - not interested. Over-hyped. Few people even remember winners anymore - watching sports that they don't know squat about.

There may have been a time when English "was more important" than any other language on Earth, but now we all speak Earthling.
