IOC “Agenda 2020″

The International Olympic Committee proposed changes to the bidding process and sports program for the Olympics among 40 recommendations to be voted on in December.

IOC proposes adding Olympic events, bid reforms

2014 Summer Youth Olympic Games - Closing Ceremony

Looks good to me. The downside for Artistic Gymnastics is that we hog a large percentage of the events and medals.

London 2012 had 10,568 athletes in 302 events; Rio 2016 will have 306 events.

If IOC wants to add sports, athletes or more events, they’ll have to take away from somewhere else.

WAG and MAG are at risk.

that’s not a rip …

THIS is a RIP.

maté in English, but never in Spanish or Portuguese, also known as yerba mate, chimarrão or cimarrón, is a traditional South American caffeine-rich infused drink, particularly in Argentina (where it is defined by law as the “national infusion”, Uruguay, Paraguay and Southern Brazil, and to a lesser degree in southern Chile, the Bolivian Chaco, Syria and Lebanon. It is prepared by steeping dried leaves of yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis, known in Portuguese as erva-mate) in hot water. …

The few times I’ve tried yerba mate myself, it’s not gone well. :-)

Hopefully Sam and the guys have modified the formula.
