Rumors about Shanghai trying for the 2028 Olympics are all over the internet, but the Shanghai Sports Bureau has now come out to deny it. Well, kind of. According to Shanghai Daily, “A Sports Bureau official who spoke on condition of anonymity said it is impossible for the city to bid for the 2028 Olympics. Baoshan and Pudong district governments also said they had never heard of such thing.” Why is s/he anonymous? Why is it impossible? Does the fact that they can’t have their regular spokesperson say something mean something? We hope not – it’d be nice to not create 2008 Beijing’s crappy visa situation all over again in 17 years.
