A permanent venue for the Olympic Games?
A permanent venue is not compatible with the spirit of the Olympic Games.
A permanent venue would be favorable to one country and therewith violate the Olympic spirit of non-discrimination.
A permanent venue goes against the spiritual basis of the
as being an international sporting event.
The original spirit of the Olympic Games has been overcome where necessary or beneficial. The participation of women, for example, was
"impractical, uninteresting, unaesthetic and improper" until a century ago.
The spirit of the Games is fairness and Sportsmanship. Fairness was violated when the Games were uprooted from the founding country, Greece. Now has become a game of financial gain for a third party the IOC.
