TINGALPA LOSES 2016 GAMES TO RIO DE JANEIRO

Brazil flag

In a shock decision today in Copenhagen, the International Olympic Committee has voted to deny Tingalpa the Olympic Games for the third successive time.

TINCOG President Tom Carroll stated that it was unlikely Tingalpa would bid again for the 2020 Games.

"Seriously, screw those guys," he said.
"It is obvious to me now that we were wasting out time with the IOC. Looking back, getting the Olympics for Tingalpa seems like a bit of an unrealistic idea."

Mr Carroll said that he would now turn his attention to more achievable goals, such as setting up Australia's first space port - in Tingalpa.

"We have established a new organisation dedicated to this mission. Most of the old team are back. The Tingalpa Space Agency will be open for business first thing on Monday morning."

DECISION DAY - October 2, 2009

The winner of the 2016 Olympic Games will be decided today in Copenhagen, Denmark.

TINCOG is feeling optimistic, having deliberately kept details of its 2016 bid quiet, in an attempt to prevent rivals from stealing our revolutionary ideas.
