  3. Today
  4. Women's baseball and football have been dropped from the 2019 Pan Am Games program, so much for gender equality And sport climbing will not be contested.
  5. Indeed terrible changes for the sport program @MHSN And bridge Just as ridiculous as E-sports
  6. I guess because they could not a single country willing to host the tournament by itself... I mean sure it means some heavy expenses, but I guess in a country like Argentina, Puerto Rico or Mexico they will have enough revenue from sponsors, TV rights and ticket sales. I agree with you this system is stupid and unfair, specially because Argentina has a wild card to the semis, even if they team perform terrible in the preliminaries (which I hope won't happen but you never know); plus this tournament is also supposed to serve as the qualifier for 2019 Pan American Games, giving 7th tickets which still keeps me wondering how are the planning to determine.
  7. OCA published the number of events and sports for the 2018 Asian Games, this is from few days ago but I didn't notice that before. they made revolutionary changes in the program, huge huge changes. I understand Indonesia saved OCA after Vietnam gave up hosting the event very late but still I can't believe they let them make such big changes ! they have this program to benefit Indonesia, we were supposed to have Kurash, Roller skating, skateboaring and Sambo here as well but fortunately they removed them from the program. these changes will change the medal table A LOT, I mean China, Japan and Korea will be in top 3 for sure but that will change a lot for the rest. here I'm comparing the events with previous program, the only sport they completely dropped from the program comparing to 2014 was Cricket, not a bad idea when top Asian countries (India, Pakistan etc) didn't take it serious. Diving (10) - no change, we will have Olympics events plus 1m events. Swimming (32) - they cut 6 non-Olympics 50 meters evens, can't say I'm sorry about that Synchronized Swimming (3) - no change Water Polo (2) - no change Archery (10) - We already had compound in the program They added two more events, both mixed team events. not a good idea but Indonesia wants that. Athletics (46) - they dropped one event from 47, most probably the 50kg walk event. Badminton (7) - no change as expected, this is their national sport ! Baseball (1) - no change Softball (1) - no change Basketball (4) - Surprisingly they added 3-on-3 basketball as well. Bowling (6) - They cut it from 12 events to 6 ! A very good decision, this is not fair to award several medals for doing EXACTLY the same things. Boxing (12) - They dropped one from 13. I don't know how, did AIBA change the weight classes again ? Bridge (6) - what the hell is this ? is this even a sport ? what a shame Canoeing (16) - no change Cycling (16) - They dropped 3 track events and added 1 MTB event ! track event was already tiny thanks to IOC, this is really disappointing, I wonder which events won't be in 2018 program. Equestrian (6) - no change, this is in the program at the moment but apparently not finalized yet and they may drop the whole sport, will decide about it after the Asian federation election. Fencing (10) - unbelievable ! they did the same as IOC probably dropping two team events. but no details I don't know which events will be gone. but I guess this will be the same as 2020 program. Football (2) - no change Golf (2) - They dropped both team events, not a bad idea in my opinion. Gymnastics (18) - no change Handball (2) - no change, believe it or not, Indonesia wanted Handball go but OCA at least didn't let this one happen. Hockey (2) - no change Jet Ski (3) - No comment ! Judo (14) - They dropped both team events, don't complain about this as well Kabaddi (2) - no change, surprised they didn't drop this one as a non-Olympic sport Karate (13) - no change JuJitsu (8) - This is another stupid new addition, I don't know what's the deal between OCA and Jujitsu, but they are supporting this sport A LOT, only this one is not probably an Indonesian addition. Pencak Silat (16) - LOL , I knew this will be in the program but seriously 16 events ??!! this sport almost doesn't exist outside of Southeast Asia ! Wushu (12) - They dropped 3 events, I'm almost sure that's from Sanda and not Taolu cuz Indonesia sucks in Sanda. the sanda program was already very tiny, if they drop men's Sanda events that will be a VERY bad news for my country. Modern Pentathlon (4) - no change, surprised they kept the team events Paragliding (6) - No comment ! Rowing (15) - they added one more event here, I have no idea what's that new event, Rugby Sevens (2) - no change Sailing (10) - They cut 4 events here. making it similar to Olympic program probably. Sepak Takraw (6) - no change, this is exactly where we needed to drop something, only "regu" event should stay Shooting (18) - This is where the BIGGEST change happened. we had 44 events in Incheon, and now only 18 !!! with 18 I don't know if we will have any mixed team event or not but I guess this is 2016 Olympics program + 3 more individual events. Soft Tennis (5) - they probably dropped both team events, I would be happier with the whole soft tennis gone. Sport Climbing (8) - The only new addition that I fully support. but having 8 events making me wonder what's the last event ? a mixed event the same as 2020 Olympics or a speed team event to help Indonesia ? Squash (4) - no change Table Tennis (4) - unbelievable , this sport is QUITE popular in Asia and we always had full program in this sport and now they dropped 3, most probably all doubles events. what a shame. Tennis (5) - They dropped both team events the same as soft tennis. well we always had team events in tennis, that was traditional at the Asian Games Taekwondo (16) - no change, there were rumors about dropping non-Olympic weights but I'm glad they were not true. Triathlon (3) - no change Volleyball (4) - no change Weightlifting (16) - they added the new weight of women's 90kg to the program as expected. Wrestling (18) - Very sad for a wrestling fan like me, they dropped non-Olympic weights, that was expected though but very disappointing

  9. Yesterday
  10. We would never do that! We would have sent you to the British Antarctic Territory if we truely wanted Ireland's chances to be sabotaged!
  11. Why they are using such a weird system this year ? was it hard for them to find a host for a 16-team tournament ? or maybe they were just bored of having a decent tournament and they came up with such stupid/strange idea.
  12. Fournier fully engaged on playing for France http://www.fiba.com/eurobasket/2017/news/fournier-fully-engaged-on-playing-for-france
  13. Iran will send a big delegation this time as well, after finishing second in Indonesia 4 years ago they want to repeat that again, with all of our favorite sports in the program Wrestling, Weightlifting, Taekwondo, Karate and Wushu we would probably even able to top the medal table but I guess that's always reserved for the host nation in multi-sports event like this with the exception of Football, Handball, Basketball Rhythmic Gymnastics Iran will send team to all other sports even in Tennis and Gymnastics Artistic This is a good chance for some minnor sports like those to do something and get results. for example we will never win medal in table tennis at the Asian Games, but here there is a good chance. from what I see in the squads, in volleyball we are sending the junior team, in wushu and men's taekwondo this is our B or C team. (women's taekwondo will be A team only without olympic medalist Alizadeh) in weightlifting this is a mixture of A and B teams since none of our stars are available right now , in Greco-Roman wrestling this is a mixture of A and B team (will be held at the same time as the Asian Championship) for other sports we are sending our very A team ! the biggest surprise was sending the A team including our Olympic medalists in freestyle wrestling, apparently our NOC pushed the wrestling federation to ignore the Asian Champs and send the whole team here. will be a nice competition with Azerbaijan and Turkey. I think out of all those sports, Karate competition will have the highest level, with Egypt, Iran, Azerbaijan, Turkey and few more good countries like Malaysia.
  14. Haha, I suddenly feel I have been transported to WINTERFEST
  15. Watch out for these suspicious looking birds that can be spotted on the island.

  20. Séamus is already building a raft in case we need it .
  21. St.Kilda!! Ever since learning of this island I have always thought this must be a wonderful place to visit, I am delighted . Lots of beautiful relaxation time and as soon as I get bedded down in a safe location I will look forward to all and any weather! Looking forward to getting in touch with nature here in the Outer Hebrides and joining my Tunisian friends for pleasant company over tea (or coffee ). We will no doubt have TISC Open in our minds and what better backdrop to provide inspiration. Woohoo, finally I get to visit these islands which are on my bucket list

  23. There's a rumour going around that the organizers secretly don't want their Irish rivals to attend the Finals, so that's why they've been sent to such isolated island...
  24. MEN'S DIVISION I GROUP A WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2017 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Round-Robin DAY 4 Ukraine 0 - 1 Austria Period-by-Period: 0-0, 0-1, 0-0 April 25th 2017, h. 20:30, Palace of Sports, Kyiv Austria wins battle One goal vs. Ukraine, four injuries Ukraine delivered Austria a tough battle but the “eagles” won 1-0. By the end of the game four players from both teams were missing due to injuries. “It was a tough game, it was just one goal. We lost Thomas Raffl after he blocked a shot in the last game and Layne Viveiros, during the game we lost Stefan Ulmer. In the end we just had 17 players, that’s very special,” said Austria coach Roger Bader. Raffl tried to play but had to give up the plan after the warm-up. Also the Ukrainian coach had to react during the game as Yuri Petrangovsky left the game due to an old groin injury and is not likely to return as the team announced. Austria needed a win in order to stay in the race for promotion and to avoid a relegation battle while winless Ukraine needed to win in order to survive in this group. The favourites had a better start and a lot of power plays. Ukraine took six minor penalties in the period, Austria two. “The emotions were quite difficult in the beginning. Many of the penalties were silly and careless. The absence of calmness and decisiveness in the crucial moments was missing. The opponent was quite active and didn’t allow us to create many opportunities,” said Ukrainian assistant coach Dmytro Pidgursky. Austria outshot Ukraine 20-5 in the first period but didn’t capitalize on its many chances while Eduard Zakharchenko had a strong night in the Ukrainian net. “Yesterday we had a great power play against Hungary, today it was not successful. Normally if you have that many shots you should score goals but the Ukrainian box play and the goalie were very good,” Bader said. Ukraine didn’t manage to create too many opportunities but with Zakharchenko keeping his team in the game, the possibility was always there to score an upset, or at least a goal. They came out stronger in the second period and had some opportunities. Like at 12:59 when Sergi Babynets’ shot just hit the crossbar. Three minutes later the Austrians eventually netted the puck on a power play, their seventh of the game. Martin Schumnig shot from the blue line and the puck went in deflected by Daniel Woger. “We started strong but we didn’t capitalize on our chances despite playing 5-on-3 for over two minutes twice in the first period. But we stayed patient. The Ukrainians put us under pressure for a couple of minutes in the second period but we defended well and were lucky enough to score a power-play goal and defended the lead until the very end,” said Schumnig. “We could have won higher if we had converted the countless of shots but we also have to thank Bernhard [Starkbaum], who did great goaltending and saved us from a loss or tie.” With that goal the game was still far from over. Ukraine created more scoring opportunities in the third period. Vitali Lyalka had the biggest chance on a breakaway attempt at 4:40 but Schumnig prevented him from shooting. With the win Austria moved up to second place with six points from two games and seems to be safe from the relegation battle while being enabled to dream of higher ambitions. The next opponent is Korea on Thursday. “We will have a big game against Korea. We saw them last year and we played them in November. We saw how they have improved, so we are not surprised that they play so well here,” said Bader. Ukraine on the other hand sits on the bottom of the standings with zero points. If the hosts don’t gain points in tomorrow night’s game against Kazakhstan, the last place and relegation will be their fate even before the last round on Friday. “The chances are always there and our attitude is always to battle for victory even if we have to die on the ice,” Petrangovsky puts it martially before tomorrow’s game.
  25. Fener and CKSA are in F4
  26. COMHAIRLE NAN EILEAN SIAR (SCO) Comhairle nan Eilean Siar is a council/county area that covers the Western Isles of Scotland, including the Outer Hebrides, it is a part of Scotland I definitely want to visit, but have never had a chance so I am very jealous of the delegations who get to stay here. For the next week this county will be home to Tunisia @amen09@tuniscof and Ireland @OlympicIRL, the founders and next host of the contest, maybe they can have a meeting about the future of the contest on the islands! Tunisia - Isle of Lewis (Outer Hebrides) The Tunisian delegation will make the Isle of Lewis their new home for the coming days. The Isles of Lewis is located at the Northern tip of the Outer Hebrides and therefore, as the picture suggests, the Northern Lights can be seen at certain times of the year from the Island. Also shown in the picture are the Callanish Stones, a ritual site during the Bronze Age, one tradition goes that the stones are petrified giants who refused to convert to Christianity, whilst the history might be disputed they are definitely a maginficant site. And this is where the Tunisian delegation will be staying, seriously, these ancient houses have been rennovated and are now a holiday accomodation site on the shores of the Atlantic (Garenin blackhouse village), not advised to go paddling in these waters! Ireland - St Kilda The beautiful, now uninhabited, Island of St Kilda will be home to Ireland for the coming days. The Island has a sad past, as the last surviving residents were evacuated from the island during WW2 after centuries of human inhabitation. The island itself is now a world heristage site and has a history of Vikings, Druids, raids and resistence. However life on the island is incredibly challenging, as brutal storms can strike the island. St Kilda may not have many humans left, but that has been more than replaced by wildlife! Thousands of seabirds flock to the island as a breeding ground, but because of the salt spray and strong winds, no trees grow on the island. We hope a storm doesn't trap the most sucsessful TISC nation of all time on the island for the grand final, or was that the scheming plan of the hosts all along...
