墨尔本或将申请2028年奥运会举办权

  最近代表一部份学者、企业家以及社区领导人向政府提出政策建议的墨尔本委员会表示,墨尔本应该努力申请2028年奥林匹克运动会的举办权。

  委员会董事长Kate Roffey表示,她计划于正在墨市举行的“运动在维州(Sport in Victoria)”会议上探讨这个想法。“墨尔本CBD附近拥有世界上最好的体育设施,我们当然可以举办一场奥运会,”Roffey说道,“我们也具备足够的才智,知道如何举办这样的国际性赛事。将硬件和软件结合后,我们能够提升品牌价值、从赛事中获利,吸引更多的人前来游览。”

  墨尔本上一次举办奥运会是在1956年,当年的运动会因为是南半球举办的第一场,被认为是澳洲体育走向成熟的标志。

  反对党大型活动发言人John Eren表示,如果今年工党能够赢得选举,也会接受这个想法。“我们曾经是世界体育的中心,不过现在位列英国之后,所以说我们丢失了我们的冠军荣誉,需要找回来。我们已经拥有了大量的体育设施,可能还需要经过些许调整。当然,不管是举办什麽大型活动,我们都得看看我们还缺什麽基础设施。不过,我们需要散布这样的想法、接受多方的建议,并在公布政策前仔细审查一番。”

  墨尔本申奥如同“酗酒”

  墨尔本曾经申办1996年的奥运会,不过却输给了美国的亚特兰大市。在当时的申办中负责文化导演的Shane Maloney,把墨尔本再次申办奥运会的想法比作“酗酒”。

  “大家都为这个想法感到激动,礼物漫天飞、冷点心热点心交替呈上、旗帜到处飘扬,然后你赢得了举办权,当然,这些都得从你的信用卡上花钱,”Maloney说道,“当你参加完一场极好的派对,第二天醒来,你就会发现你需要为之付出一辈子的代价。实际上,所有这些基础设施,都只是累赘。

 

 

Melbourne urged to bid for 2028 Olympic Games

 

Melbourne should put in a bid to host the 2028 Olympic Games, according to the Committee for Melbourne.

The committee represents a group of academic, business and community leaders and offers policy advice to Government.

Its chief executive, Kate Roffey, said she planned to discuss the idea at the Sport in Victoria conference currently being held in the city.

"Melbourne has collectively the best array of sport facilities close to the CBD of any city in the world, so we're perfectly positioned to hold an Olympics Games," Ms Roffey said.

"We've got intellect to know how to run these sorts of major international events.

"When you've got those two things together, the branding and the value you can generate out of these events in terms of exposure and having people coming here is enormous."

Melbourne last hosted the Games in 1956, in an event that was widely considered as a coming of age for Australian sport as it was the first time the Games had been held in the southern hemisphere.

Premier Denis Napthine said he would support a bid for the Games, but the proposal is still in his infancy.

He believed Melbourne was ideally positioned to host major sporting events.

"The normal process is the city bids, with backing from state and federal government," Dr Napthine said.

"This matter will be considered, but I believe Melbourne and Victoria is well placed to put their hand up for a future Olympic Games down the track."

Opposition major events spokesman John Eren said Labor was open to the idea if it won Government this year.

"We used to be the sporting capital of the world, but we're second now to the UK, so we've lost our title and we need to get that back," Mr Eren told 774 ABC Melbourne.

"We have a lot of sporting infrastructure that already exists, there might be some fine tuning that needs to be made.

"Of course any major events like that we need to have a look at our infrastructure needs, but these sorts of ideas need to be floated and we're open to any suggestions and we'd be looking very carefully going forward in relation to announcing some policies."

Melbourne Olympic bid like 'binge drinking': Shane Maloney

Melbourne put in a bid to host the 1996 Olympics, but was unsuccessful, losing to Atlanta.

Shane Maloney, who was the cultural director for the unsuccessful bid, likened the idea of Melbourne bidding for the Olympics again to "binge drinking".

"Everyone gets really excited and the gifts start flowing and there's a reception of hot and cold running canapés and there are flags and you win the bid and of course, it's all going on your credit card," he said.
