Blast from the past this week is a post I made from 2008 – about the the 2008 Olympics. As a historical note I am doing this update just after the close of the 2020 Olympics but held in Tokyo in 2021.
I was cleaning up my computer and found some stuff I hadn’t posted. This one is from the cycling events. It’s quite ironic that the most technological advanced games they still used a petrol/gas powered bicycle to control the races. You would expect electric power at the least to avoid the polluting the competitors.
Don’t know if all cycling events have this sort of ‘motorcycle’ to lead the competitors onto the track.
2021 Update: I didn’t see any in to 2020/21 games but electric bicycles have come a fair way since 2008.
