    THE BIG REVEAL... OF THE TISC 2017 LOGO! A big thank you has to go to @vinipereira for making the stunning logo! The logo itself features the four flowers of the British Isles, representing the countries that make up our great nation. The English Rose, Welsh Daffodil, Northern Irish Clover and Scottish Thistle, all featured on the logo and in the video. Here is the logo in all its glory:

    Final Standing available here. Ufilov ady48 bestmen Congratulation to our first winner of the year ady48 and Romania for a deserved Gold Medal ! It was a big battle for top spot since Day 3 between ady48, Ufilov and Crolympic, joined on Day 7 by bestmen. Unfortunately for him and Croatia, Crolympic missed the round of 16 , and dropped from top spot to the middle of the table losing a big chance for a medal and leaving the lead to ady48 who secured his position until the finish. There was another battle between Ufilov and bestmen for 2nd and 3rd spot, which was decided on the last day when Ufilov had better picks than the algerian ! so Congratulations to Silver Medalist Ufilov and Poland who proved once again how good he is with predictions almost never leaving top 4 except on Day 1 (7th place) and Day 8 (5th place). Congratulations also goes to bestmen and Algeria who showed a great talent with his picks : he made 12 perfect prediction all tournament long and he is the only one to make a double perfect prediction for Semifinals , good job bestmen ! (we'll see about your bonus idea ) Italian Dunadan clinches 4th spot from Polish rybak who had a great tournament always being in top 5. Great overall result for team Poland with all three players in top 10! though it could have been an impressive top 5 finish for them if only Pavlo didn't drop at the last day (if he didn't predict Norway to be new World Champions ) Unfortunately some players left the contest I hope that's not a bad sign here Thank you all who participated for this first contest of the year even if the number wasn't that large we can certainly do better than 25 players for the coming contests . For my part I tried to do my best to make this contest come true even if it came a little late, I hope you enjoyed it! See you soon for another contest ! Now please stand up for the national anthem of Romania !

    Final Standing available here heywoodu dcro rybak Congratulation to our first winter sports winner of the year @dcro and team Croatia ! The battle for gold was very close between the three medalists : @heywoodu @rybak and @dcro. But the final word was croatian For dcro, this gold medal is really deserved since he kept his lead all contest long from Day 2 until the finish ! He was certainly helped for the win by the perfect pick of Day 2 ! Congratulations Croatia for your first medal of the year ! Despite being absent from podium during the first half of the contest, heywoodu managed to come back and took the Silver from rybak on the last day. Congratulations goes to the Netherlands for their first medal of the year Taking the lead on first day and being second from Day 2 to Day 5, and even sharing the first place with dcro on Day 8 wasn't enough to give rybak the gold medal, so he got only Bronze . Congratulation Poland for their second medal of the year ! Team Italy has proved once again how good they are whenthey had 4 out of 5 players in top 10 During this contest only two players had a perfect pick : our champion dcro on Day 2 and Algeria's @bestmen on Day 4. I hope you enjoyed this contest ! Good luck to everyone for the next one ! Now please stand up for the national anthem of Croatia !

    It's fairly nice to see Cecilia Aymonier making a successful transfer from cross-country skiing. I wonder if Hermann will have the same luck next year, although it's very difficult to get in to the German team. PS: Also, if Latuilliere works on her shooting there'll be another strong French on the rise on a team that's already very strong.

    When you're 35, the athletes' representative who is loved by almost all athletes, already wanted to retire after last season to become a buffalo farmer ( ) but decided to continue with the big purpose to keep collecting sponsor money for your local biathlon club.....you deserve to finally, finally be rewarded in a way like this

    May be I'm the last one who has read the entire topic lol, I didn't have time to read all the comments before, I did all the calculations of the votes, one by one on my own table and I can reassure you all that the final table is correct . Let's begin with congratulations to the winner proved once again he's the master of this contest .Well deserved gold ! The best contest for so far congratulations for Silver ! Congratulations to for first Bronze ! Unfortunately for they gave that Bronze to their neighbours Next time may be it'll be your time don't give up ! We hadn't collected much points as the last edition of the Annual contest, we thought that our choice would get a much better ranking than a 16th place . So we are a little bit disappointed but be sure we will work harder for it next time. I wanted to thank all the nations who voted for Kelmti Horra and it appears they all have different languagues : only and share the same 11 - You gave us our only medal : Muito Obrigado ! 8 - Our flag neighbour : Teşekkürler ! 7 - Poland Dziękuję ! Our mediterranean neighbours Malta Grazzi , and Greece ευχαριστώ (Sakis is really great my 2nd Sub) ! 5 - Denmark Tak (I liked your song though it was noisy ; it scared me at first bad luck you were my Sub N°1) ! Serbia Hvala ! 4 - çox sağ ol ! Origado ! 3 - Chokran ! Merci ! 2 - Grazzie ! Thank You Sir ! Terima Kasih ! 1 - Mulțumesc ! also I wanted to mention the songs that I liked : They remind me of the Beegees great group What a voice and what a pronounciation I think I'm gonna learn finnish soon Reminded me of last year's winners very good choice The Corrs, What else ? or may be one thing : Andrea I love you I really liked the lyrics of their song (I understand a little romanian ) and it has a good rythym too one of the best summer hits of some years ago an eternal hit sung by a great Umberto ! sweet and cute At first I thought she was american a lovely voice from and nice lyrics ! Nice and touching song Kelly and Bryan would have got more points from me with other songs Eventhough India didn't get points from me I wanted to say that their song was really good and very touching ! Was my favourite , that song reminds me of high school years with that irresistible Santana's guitar

    These days went by so quickly... Team Brazil is about to check out of the Athletes' Village in a few minutes and then headed to Almaty airport to go back to Germany (and then Austria). I'm happy to know though that a certain Brazilian cross-country skier/biathlete has had an amazing time at the Universiade. Waking up way too early in the mornings to watch the competitions and following her adventures there has been wonderful

    Tomorrow begins the Bansko world cup weekend. With the success that Jekova and Yankov have had, i think our federation will try to have World Cup starts for a while. It is expected that the saturday/sunday starts to have around 10 000 spectators.

    Well, I'm kind of a purist for prediction, so I don't like any kind of bonuses (I don't even like the multipliers for knockout stages!). I think they increase the "luck" factor and decrease the "pure knowledge" factor to decide the winner, which I don't like too much.

    I don't know how it worked in the past (was this general standing really updated? Did more users participate? ), but the presence of a general standing itself should encourage lower ranked users to be interested until the end of the contest: gaining positions would mean gaining more points in the general standing, even without bonus points.

    Hailey Langland stomps a Cab double cork 1080, the first double cork landed by a woman in competition at an X Games. Marcus Kleveland lands a quad cork 1800 in Men's Snowboard Big Air, the first quad cork in competition history. Max Parrot lands the first quad underflip in competition in Men's Snowboard Big Air at X Games Aspen 2017.

    Also emailed a few other federations, South Africa said "there are 4 athletes trying to qualify, it is up to us to decide who to send", Tonga said "they are working tirelessly to get the athletes there", Tajikistan said "yes of course we will send our athletes" (even though none are qualified) and the guy from Nepal asked "Do you have any suggestions?"

    CLOSING CEREMONY The 70s in sport. just a great period in our sport, again especially in Hockey, Czechoslovakia became in 77-78 two times back-to-back world champions with many slovak players in other sports, One of the biggest success and surprises of the 70s was for sure also the Anton Tkáč gold olympic medal in Montreal 1976 in Track Cycling sprint But there no way to overpass the thing that happen in 1976 in Belgrade. Czechoslovakia with 8 Slovak players in the starting 11 !!! became European Football Champions !
