CANBERRA Women's Amara Darboh Jersey , Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- The man who lit the cauldron at the Melbourne 1956 Olympic Games as a 19 year old running prodigy said in a recent interview with Xinhua that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) should amend its charter and award Games to countries, not cities.

Australian middle to long distance running legend Ron Clarke said the costs of staging an Olympic Games have become so burdensome that social unrest is almost inevitable where the costs of infrastructure and ceremonies are too great for a single city." There is not a municipality in the world that can afford to pay for the infrastructure necessary for the staging of an Olympics and the huge cost associated with the actual staging of a Games," the dual Olympian and 19-time world record holder said at his home on Queensland's Gold Coast earlier this week.

"The trouble is that a lot of these excessive costs are more to do with pomp and ceremony than the sporting competitions themselves."

"In 1956 in Melbourne, the Opening Ceremony cost organizers well under 1,000 U.S. dollars Women's Nazair Jones Jersey , while last year at London the cost escalated to 200 million U.S. Dollars."

"In Rio in 2016, sixty years after Melbourne's Games, the costs of the Opening Ceremony will be the single most expensive item in the Organizing Committee's budget," he said.

Clarke said the IOC should restrict entrant numbers in Olympic sports events from each competing nation to one.

He said the International Olympic Committee needs to decide whether the Games are an athletics completion or a showcase and amend its charter accordingly.

He is also keen on new sports being introduced into future Games, but has called for restrictions on the numbers of athletes from the same country in each event.

"I have no problems with expansion of the number of different sports in an Olympics it should be a celebration of sports from throughout the world incorporating as many cultures Women's Delano Hill Jersey , peoples, races and countries as possible - within the reach of all social classes," he said. "But rather than have three sprinters from the USA in the track and field 100m, or three distance runners from Kenya in the 5,000m and 10 Women's Shaquill Griffin Jersey ,000m, or even three swimmers from Australia in the 100m backstroke, it would be fairer if only one from each country could enter." "This would mean medals would be shared among more competing nations, it would streamline the numbers of events with fewer heats and semi-finals and reduce the demand on the organizers to continually increase the field sizes. There would also be fewer team tactics predetermining results."

Clarke said the IOC needs to take some significant actions to ensure the Olympic movement continues to grow and welcome new sports into its programs while ensuring all countries compete on an equal footing.

"The numbers of participants should not become so cumbersome as to make the costs of staging a Games beyond the economies of more than a few very rich nations," he said.

Clarke's recommendations to the IOC include capping the expenditure by any country on the Opening Ceremony to 100 million U.S. dollars Women's Ethan Pocic Jersey , limiting entries in any event from any country to one, continuing to increase the numbers of participant sports, but reducing the number of events in any particular sport.

After three other top Miss America Organization leaders resigned, a fourth, board member Tammy Haddad Women's Malik McDowell Jersey , has also left the organization.

Haddad joins Miss America Organization CEO Sam Haskell, president and COO Josh Randle and Board chair Lynn Weidner — who have resigned following significant backlash over leaked emails in which Haskell insulted several Miss America contestants.

On Thursday, The Huffington Post published a story that included several emails written by Haskell, in which he disparaged the character and insulted the appearance of several Miss America contestants. Among them was 2013 winner Mallory Hagan, who was mocked by Haskell over her weight and purported sex life. Haskell also called former participants “c–ts” in another email.

The story caused significant outrage among former Miss America winners. Dick Clark Productions said it had ended its partnership with Miss America when the organization over the matter.

“We were appalled by their unacceptable content and insisted Terence Garvin Jersey , in the strongest possible terms, that the Miss America Organization (MAO) board of directors conduct a comprehensive investigation and take appropriate action to address the situation,” Dick Clark Productions said in a statement Friday. “Shortly thereafter, we resigned our board positions and notified MAO that we were terminating our relationship with them.”(Agencies)
