There is no justification for the grotesque inflated costs for any host nation tax payers that have had to endure a cost of living crisis from a pandemic unparalleled in modern history.

A complete rethink reform of the whole Olympic concept is long overdue, a permeant site, an agreed budget cap most importantly a transparent independently audited distribution of the profits.
