CANBERRA Playera Mexicana de Futbol , Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- The man who lit the cauldron at the Melbourne 1956 Olympic Games as a 19 year old running prodigy said in a recent interview with Xinhua that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) should amend its charter and award Games to countries, not cities.
Australian middle to long distance running legend Ron Clarke said the costs of staging an Olympic Games have become so burdensome that social unrest is almost inevitable where the costs of infrastructure and ceremonies are too great for a single city." There is not a municipality in the world that can afford to pay for the infrastructure necessary for the staging of an Olympics and the huge cost associated with the actual staging of a Games," the dual Olympian and 19-time world record holder said at his home on Queensland's Gold Coast earlier this week.
"The trouble is that a lot of these excessive costs are more to do with pomp and ceremony than the sporting competitions themselves."
"In 1956 in Melbourne, the Opening Ceremony cost organizers well under 1 Playera Oribe Peralta Mundial 2018 ,000 U.S. dollars, while last year at London the cost escalated to 200 million U.S. Dollars."
"In Rio in 2016, sixty years after Melbourne's Games, the costs of the Opening Ceremony will be the single most expensive item in the Organizing Committee's budget Playera Hirving Lozano Mundial 2018 ," he said.
Clarke said the IOC should restrict entrant numbers in Olympic sports events from each competing nation to one.
He said the International Olympic Committee needs to decide whether the Games are an athletics completion or a showcase and amend its charter accordingly.
He is also keen on new sports being introduced into future Games, but has called for restrictions on the numbers of athletes from the same country in each event.
"I have no problems with expansion of the number of different sports in an Olympics it should be a celebration of sports from throughout the world incorporating as many cultures, peoples, races and countries as possible - within the reach of all social classes Playera Edson Alvarez Mundial 2018 ," he said. "But rather than have three sprinters from the USA in the track and field 100m, or three distance runners from Kenya in the 5,000m and 10,000m Playera Javier Aquino Mundial 2018 , or even three swimmers from Australia in the 100m backstroke, it would be fairer if only one from each country could enter." "This would mean medals would be shared among more competing nations, it would streamline the numbers of events with fewer heats and semi-finals and reduce the demand on the organizers to continually increase the field sizes. There would also be fewer team tactics predetermining results."
Clarke said the IOC needs to take some significant actions to ensure the Olympic movement continues to grow and welcome new sports into its programs while ensuring all countries compete on an equal footing.
"The numbers of participants should not become so cumbersome as to make the costs of staging a Games beyond the economies of more than a few very rich nations," he said.
Clarke's recommendations to the IOC include capping the expenditure by any country on the Opening Ceremony to 100 million U.S. dollars Playera Marco Fabian Mundial 2018 , limiting entries in any event from any country to one, continuing to increase the numbers of participant sports, but reducing the number of events in any particular sport. Tweet When I sit and think about where we once were as a nation and where we are now, I’m terrified to think about where we’ll be in ten years. Our homeland is crumbling into powder and with each day we are disintegrating into oblivion. I’m angry; I’m sad and worst of all Playera Jonathan dos Santos Mundial 2018 , when I think about my daughters I feel helpless. I find myself grasping for any news that can ease my mind. I’ve even resorted to listening to news anchors that can hardly chew gum and walk without falling flat on their faces for signs of economic relief. Am I the only one or have we all been tugged down into the mud with the level of expectations we have for our political leaders?
After Clinton I was willing to accept a sex crazed, necromaniac , after Bush, I was ready to vote for mumbling Playera Carlos Salcedo Mundial 2018 , mind dwarfs and after Obama our national standards will be accepting of a foreign born, sex addict with a third grade education that speaks Taushiro. Where did it all go wrong? Like the Romans we’ve suffocated beneath the arrogance of our own success but I must beg the question ‘Is there anyone that is qualified and willing to help?’ Is there anyone that can step in to this hurricane of shattered glass and razorblades, willing to put it all on the line and sacrifice the nature of pride, greed and corruption to get this country back to prosperity?
We need another JP Morgan minus the corruption Playera Hugo Ayala Mundial 2018 , we need another Eleuthre Irne du Pont that will pinpoint unchartered strengths an launch the United States back to the forefront of powers but, even more we need the leadership of Andrew Jackson with the unstoppable motivation of Napoleon before the desert disasters and the natural instincts of Irish freedom fighter Michael Collins.
We must gather a small, tight knit group of leaders that burn with conviction that have a track record of domination, patriotism and the ability to rip influence and control from the grasp of the corrupt and focus like lasers on reclaiming this devastated land. I propose an overhaul on Washington’s institutional powerbase: Microsoft narcissist and monopoly mastermind Bill Gates as President Playera Jesus Molina Mundial 2018 , the oracle of Omaha himself Warren Buffet to be head of treasury and leading the charge on shutting down the Federal Reserve, Princeton Corporate Solutions’ strategies god among men, James Scott to work his PSYOPS and subliminal economics on the minds of the populace while turning around our nation’s economy and I say we build a time machine to bring back Caligula and Attila The Hun to run our prison population.
