    If FIS information is correct, Mexico should have 4 qualified athletes: Sarah Schleper (Women's Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super G & Downhill) Rodolfo Dickson (Men's Slalom & Giant Slalom) German Madrazo (Men's 15km Free Cross Country) Roberto Franco (Men's Ski Slopestyle)

    I'll never understand that logic. The Olympics are not just about medals. Sport is not just about the very top, participation is a key factor also. Federations and NOC should care about that too. Besides, it's not like potential medallists are schoolboys that somehow will get deconcentrated by the "bad pupils".

    look at coni's website (the dedicated microsite for Pyeongchang)... just click on the "Azzurri" list and you have the names for all the disciplines...some of them are already official, some others need confirmation in the next few days... but you can see from now that we're going to send at best 21 alpine skiers (to be chosen among those in that list)... in Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined at the moment there are still the full teams, but I don't think they will send all of them to Korea...actually, I hope they won't waste so much money)... imho, they should give the green light only to those athletes that can at least make the top 15 (and have actually made at least twice the top 8 in this season)... the remaining money should be saved for developing the skills and experience of the most successful youngsters, already looking ahead to Beijing 2022, rather than making some gifts of a paid holiday to a bunch of "capre, capre, capre" (cit. Vittorio Sgarbi )...

    Albania have withdrawn from holding the 2018 European Championships because the entire board of the weightlifting federation has resigned because of the scandal of the positive drug test by Romola Begaj at the World Championships.

    Dont know if it was posted earlier: Hungarian team: 16, according to Hungary"s M4 Sport. Most of it is in short track speed skating (in which they have a real medal chance for the first time in 30+ years, all WOG sports considered...)

    Hope they will do more races in Lillehammer in the future. More variance in the top3 nationalities is more than welcome ::D Hopefully one day Formula 1 will also look like this race. Otherwise it is like a normal luge race: Germany-Germany-Germany-Germany (errr, Mercedes-Mercedes-Mercedes-Mercedes :D)

    I really don't understand why reject a quota... What stupid decision. Luckily in Italy all athletes that have a quota are sure to go at Olympics

    Roberto Franco is probably the best athlete Mexico has ever sent to the winter games, FWIW. Schleper is probably the second best (and apparently she is quite involved in training young Mexican alpine skiers).

    On what basis would you decline any quota? Isn't participating at the OG alone worth something anymore?

    So the marathon of confirming the quotas started. Sill a long way to go, but we already have some rejections: Ski Cross: rejected one female spot. It should go to Halfpipe: rejected one male spot. It should go to

    Victor Santos will represent Brazil in the men's cross-country It was already more or less certain, but after Leandro Lutz' last-ditch attempt in Turkey didn't work out, it was confirmed. They celebrated with a good pizza dinner in Livigno (ITA) yesterday, and rightly so, going from the favelas to the Olympics in 3-4 years is a performance to be incredibly proud of

    Ice hockey, and not Bandy WTF, man ? What the hell with this kid's game? These "games" are a yankee plot anyway, the Nordic Games will prevail. Can't wait for the 2026 Games Real sports for real men. EDIT: lol @ "2026". What century do I think I'm living in I obviously meant the 1926 Nordic Games.

    Commentator said like 5 times that the only way for both Czech crews to qualify for 2nd heat is if they tie for 20th place. And guess what happened? They tied.

    For fuck's sake, that's where it's becoming so horribly stupid that the qualifying document says "Unapplicable" under the reallocation of unused quota. What will happen with those two quota I wonder..
