Host city selection[edit]

The following statement is: a) Completely in the wrong location. b) Doesn't seem to be accurate considering this article states that the decision to pick Berlin was made before the fascist government had risen to power.

"...Academics cannot agree whether the IOC during this period was a willing collaborator or an organisation that favoured the aesthetics of fascist governments.[7] Although the IOC was insulated from the reality of Nazism, elements of Hitler's regime subscribed to the sporting ideologies of the IOC.[7]"

Farther to what Wintonian said earlier, the reference 7 is a book. The paragraph in question is all insinuation, and doesn't seem to represent broad debate amongst academics.

This statement should be moved or possibly removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.29.4.43 (talk) 17:48, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Also, the German flag is totally wrong in Host city selection.Ernio48 (talk) 23:41, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
Which flag and what's wrong with it? Remember that the regime changed between selection and the event. Andy Dingley (talk) 00:31, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Attempted 2nd Nazi German Games[edit]

Was there an attempted 2nd Nazi German Games which was cancelled by the outbreak of WWII?

Do you mean a game organized by Nazi Germany independent of the official Olympics or was Germany to host a second Olympic games prior to 1945? The 1940 and 1944 summer and winter games had been scheduled to take place in Tokyo, London, Sapporo and Cortina d'Ampezzo but were cancelled due to the war. If a second Nazi German games were planned it would not been Olympic games but rather something Nazi-organized (the Aryan Games? Nordic Games? -- I guess the Jesse Owens humiliation still stung). Personally I have not heard of such a plan (but what I've not heard of could fill a second Wikipedia). If such a games were conceived, and there's reliable sourcing, a mention here if not an actual article would be appropriate. freshacconci (✉) 10:30, 6 August 2017 (UTC)

MIndreaders[edit]

Not only is there far too much about Hitler in this page that should be about the Games of the XI Olympiad, but people also seem to have read his mind. Could we change the focus to the games, please? If we need a section on politics, let it be just that: A section. There's no need to poison the rest of the page with that. Mysha (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 10:58, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

The "Controversies" section is sourced to reliable sources, which is what matters. Like it or not, a lot of the historical interest and scholarship about the games is due to their political flavor. So... no, it would be undue weight to focus on the sporting side when that clearly wasn't what most people do. Even the most famous sports triumphs were all very political/nationalistic - Jesse Owns most famously. SnowFire (talk) 23:39, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

Inconsistency with infobox & navbox[edit]

In the infobox, we've got the 1948 games as successors to these games. Yet in the navbox, we've got the 1940 cancelled games as successors to these games. GoodDay (talk) 08:18, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
