LAUSANNE, Switzerland — IOC President Thomas Bach praised Paris as an “exemplary” potential candidate to host the 2024 Olympics after meeting with French President Francois Hollande on April 16.Speaking alongside Hollande at the Olympic Museum, Bach said he received “very, very encouraging” information about the expected bid.“If this candidature continues in this spirit, you have everything in hand to enter the candidature phase in full confidence,” Bach said in French.Hollande described the 2024 Olympics as “a great opportunity for the whole of France.”Paris, which hosted the 1924 Olympics, is not yet a formal applicant, but a bid was endorsed Monday by the city council.Boston, Hamburg and Rome are already declared bidders in the 2024 contest.Earlier, Bach met with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and discussed a possible bid by Budapest.The IOC has set a Sept. 15 deadline for applications and will choose the host in 2017.Hollande’s two-day state visit to Switzerland was already scheduled, but served to build momentum from the Paris city authority’s decision.“One of the reasons also for this meeting was to know exactly all the rules of this competition to respect,” the French head of state said.Bach praised France as having “very much to offer the OIympic movement.”“What we heard and learned today is that this candidature is going to put a lot of importance on a legacy” for the capital city and the country, he said.Bach said Paris’ plans seemed in tune with the themes of his “Olympic Agenda 2020” program to make the games more affordable and sustainable.The French bid’s infrastructure budget has been estimated at 3 billion euros ($4.5 billion), with operational costs of 3.2 billion euros ($4.8 billion).Hollande’s government is expected to give the final go-ahead by the end of June.Paris has failed with bids for the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Summer Games. Its last defeat came despite being strongly favored until the final vote, which was won by London.(GRAHAM DUNBAR, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shares
Hear the word hip-flask and you immediately picture a curved, rectangular metal container with a lid. The hip-flask’s design is surely archetypal, and most would say that it isn’t a design to be reinvented or toyed with, but that’s not how the design industry works. Deciding that it’s time to give the trusty old hipflask a functional and aesthetic facelift, Alasdair MacLaine created the 100ml Hip by Wingback, a novel-looking flask that opts for a more secure, machined-to-perfection cylindrical design. The redesigned flask – designed and manufactured in the UK – brings new features to the table. It sports a wider neck that’s easier to fill liquids into, as compared to the thin-mouthed generic hipflasks. It also makes the Wingback easier to clean, thanks to its cylindrical build.Its wide cylinder design is the perfect combination of function and portability. It’s aptly sized to comfortably sip from or fill into, and the perfect width to carry around too… whether in your hand, or your pocket. The 316 Stainless Steel construction gives it its strength, and its CNC milled design means that the Wingback has a higher wall thickness than those flimsy sheet-metal flasks, and comes made out of a single billet of steel, rather than being soldered and welded like most flasks. Its design is the result of a fine set of processes and materials, and they in turn result in a product that looks unique, feels reliable, lasts longer, and is absolutely a class above the rest.The hipflask comes crafted from aerospace grade stainless steel, and was built with the purpose of being a healthier, food-grade alternative to your granddad’s silver or pewter flasks (which often contained traces of lead), and was made to hold its shape and last longer. Unlike regular broad hipflask designs that can’t be cleaned, Wingback even built a removable base into its cylindrical design, giving you the ability to clean inside and out, keeping your hipflask as good as new (because the last thing you want is for your alcohol to mix with traces from the previous batch.) For personalization, Wingback even offers custom laser engraving on the base of every flask, making it an ideal keepsake for yourself, or a gift for someone special.“Our aim is to create iconic designs that will last as long as you do,” says designer and Wingback founder Alasdair MacLaine. “And we believe good design includes minimizing the impact our products have on the environment. We source the highest quality materials from trusted local suppliers in the UK and Europe and all our packaging is 100% recyclable.”Weighing a mere 180g, the Wingback has a capacity of 100ml, and boasts of a design that helps reinvent the century-old pocketable-flask design. Oh, and it even packs a bottle opener on its base to keep the good times rolling!!Designer: Alasdair MacLaine of WingbackClick Here To Buy Now: $125 $150The 100ml Hip is the reinvention of the traditional hip flask.
