Berlin, Germany - Winter Games
Transcript of Berlin, Germany - Winter Games
Landforms in and around Berlin
Bid to host the Summer Olympics
Here is where you summarize or recap all of your points and make a final pitch for getting the Olympics. This is another area that could push you to a Level 4.
Germany has hosted the Olympics twice. Once in Berlin in 1939 and once in Munich (1972). Both were plagued with issues. In 1939 Adolf Hitler banned all Jewish and Black people from participating in the Olympics. However, after many countries stated they would boycott the Olympics Hitler changed his mind and let Blacks and Jews participate. He even let one half Jewish woman onto the German team.
Things were worse in the 1972 Munich games. On September 5th a Palestinian terrorist organization kidnapped 9 israeli athletes, coaches and trainers after they broke into the athletes village. Although the German government tried to rescue them things did not go well and all the Israelis and all but 3 of the terrorists were killed.
If Germany would be granted the ability to host the games again it would be important because they could redeem themselves from the 2 previous times.
History of Olympics in Germany
As previously mentioned Germany has many different land forms. Some of the mountains in the South would be beneficial for the winter Olympics but since I am looking at Berlin with it's flat plains it would be best for the summer Olympics which requires many stadiums and running terrain.
The many Landforms of Berlin and surrounding areas
Based on the data which shows that Berlin has warm weather that isn't too hot I think it would be ideal for the Olympics. The data shows that July would probably be the best month to host as it's temperatures are the most stable.
What month is best?

A level 3+ Example of Olympics Geography Project
Throughout my presentation I will show through pictures and words that Berlin is the best place to have the summer Olympics.
I am bidding to have Berlin, Germany host the summer Olympics
Due to the fact that these events are few and far between I think it is safe to say that Germany is a good place to build new infrastructure for the Olympics.
There have been a few different natural disasters that have occured in Germany in the last 20 years: Earthquake, Flood, and Wild Fires. Also in 2006 there was a heat wave.
In 1936 the rowing and canoeing events took place in the Langer See at Grunau (a borough of Berlin). This would be a good place to hold the future Olympic water events as it is still well marked. There are also a lot of rowing clubs around Berlin's inland waterways.
Sports that require water at the summer Olympics
Although this graph only goes up to 2010, it is obvious that Germany is in recovery mode after the 2008 crash. This means they have the money to spend on the Olympics.
This is one of the locations you can aim for the Level 4
HERE YOU WOULD LIST FACTS THAT WOULD HELP CONVINCE US TO PICK YOUR COUNTRY.
Here is where I would add a little bit of detail about the history of Berlin and it's positive current features.
History of Berlin
Natural Disaster Potential
Population of Berlin: 3.5 million (Approx.)
Population of Germany: 80.62 million
Also when looking at the precipitation data July seems to have the least precipitation of the summer months.
As this topographical map shows
Germany has a variety of landforms
due to the fact that it is such a large
Berlin is the 7th largest European country.
Northern Germany, where Berlin is
located, is mostly flat which would be
ideal for building stadiums. It would
also be great for building tracks for
running and biking.
