Start the 2020 Kuujjuaq Olympic Campaign


It’s well known that baseball players like playing in Colorado as the air is thinner due to the elevation so it’s easier for them to hit home runs.  However, what’s not so well known is that the gravity around the Hudson Bay Region in Canada is actually lower that the rest of the earth.

It turns out that the last glaciation compressed the earth in a way that it’s still recovering from and this means that gravity is lower up North than it is elsewhere.  (You can read the AP article about it here).

Maybe Canada can finally open its North by making it a playground for elite athletes who can set records that would never be possible elsewhere.  Time to create a Summer Olympics organizing committee in Kuujjuaq, Umlujaq or Kuujjuarapik.
