    At last night's talk show, we were shown that the Netherlands can still go to the World Cup and being eliminated means nothing They had several good options. Option 1 - Pretend to be Belgians 1. When Belgium goes to Russia, their bus will drive via Prague, as shown in the spoiler below 2. Near Prague, there's a tunnel, where one is always in a traffic jam, and that's our chance; 3. We hijack the bus, put on some Belgian clothes and ride on to the World Cup 4. Work on the accent and nobody will figure it out Option 2 - Remove Iceland 1. After some checking, it turns out Iceland is actually an island and has no physical connection to any large land mass 2. This makes way to the option of attaching Iceland to some big boats and pulling it away 3. Pull Iceland all the way to Florida so it's part of the US and, since the US didn't qualify, a spot in the World Cup has now opened up! Option 3 - Kiss Russia's ass 1. Next year, the Netherlands will be in the UN Security Council, which opens up this entire option 2. We'll promise to vote for whatever the Russians vote for if they let us go to the World Cup Option 4 - We grab that World Cup 1. We're going to the World Cup Final and we're going to take the Cup 2. They always place the World Cup close to the field, which is our chance, since we've all bought tickets for the final 3. Rafael van der Vaart will act as a distraction for the fans 4. Arjen Robben is really fast. He'll dress up as a fan and outrun everyone to grab the Cup 5. Once we've got the Cup, a gold-painted Wesley Sneijder will be put down there as a disguise for the Cup, so nobody will notice the back switcheroo And that is how the Netherlands might be elimited, but is not even close to being out of the World Cup

    84 nations have qualified for PyeongChang 2018. I have not included the Cayman Islands as they won't compete and included Ecuador who will make their debut. The following should qualify (all have athletes meeting part of the standard/good enough to qualify): India (cross-country skiing) Philippines (alpine skiing) Hong Kong (alpine skiing) Moldova (cross-country skiing) Venezuela (alpine skiing) Chinese Taipei (speed skating). = 90 Nations The following have athletes just outside qualification, I rate their chances as good. Nigeria (women's bobsled) Jamaica (bobsled) =92 nations The following have athletes just outside qualification, I rate their chances as not that great Algeria (alpine skiing/snowboard) Barbados (freestyle skiing) Costa Rica (freestyle skiing) Nepal (cross country skiing, their athlete needs really good results to have any chance). Paraguay (freestyle skiing) Senegal (alpine skiing) Trinidad and Tobago (cross country skiing, their athlete needs really good results to have any chance). =99 nations Almost no chance to qualify, but have athlete(s) competing to qualify: Afghanistan Dominican Republic (hard to comment, as this athlete has yet to compete). Egypt Indonesia Jordan Sri Lanka Vietnam Tonga Ghana Uganda Tajikistan =110 nations Almost no chance to qualify, but have athlete(s) competing to qualify, but have a small glimmer of hope through reallocation in figure skating: Singapore (their female skater is two spots out of reallocation, and if this were 2010 she would qualify as there were 2 reallocations back then). =111 nations

    I agree, and I think in the future we should at least think about adding a rule which would allow only "real" users to take part in the contest. With "real" I mean users who are registered on the forum by at least X days/weeks or with at least X posts around the forum. We could even find users from Cook Islands or San Marino if it's just to register and post a song from their nation, but I don't think that's the aim of the contest and it is better to have some countries less but with all real users rather than having nations represented just by an user who registered, posted the song and never came back on the forum (and it would be even worst if one of them win the contest one day). I think reminders to users are great because some users are away from the forum for some periods, contacing active users who still have not registered for the contest is ok too, but to find new users from nations not represented just to increase the number might be dangerous because there is no point in bringing users who are not interested in Totallympics at all but just come here for the contest. It should be the other way around, when the forum grows and has more nations represented around the whole forum, automatically more nations will be represented in the TISC. I don't want to enter into the organization of the TISC but it is just a suggestion for those of you who organize

    Argentina Entry Fito Paez - Mariposa Tecknicolor Hope you like this song, it came out in 1994 and it's a popular song even to this day. BTW the correct title of the song is the one I wrote above, not the one in the video, but it doesn't really matter There is spanish lyrics in the video and an english translation below (I tried my best with it, but the lyrics are bit difficult).

    Still a good result, and every international confrontations are a new and good experience for the players, since the club is the actual base of your National Team and btw congrats for another Team sport Gold we really need to start to learn something from your team sports program or just start to naturalize some Serbian B, C level players, that should be enough for us to at least participate in Volleyball, Basketball, Handball, Water polo etc... championships

    SLOVENIA I believe this is first time in history of TISC contest, you can vote among musician for an athlete, and not some kind of athlete, but an Olympic Champion. Firstly, Tina Maze is known as best sportswoman of all time in our country. Former alpine skier took two Olympic gold medals in Sochi 2014, two Olympic silver in Vancouver 2010, become 4 times World champion and won World cup Overall title in 2013 with a record breaking 2414 points. There were hard times for Tina, before she became worldwide known. She was injured a lot, her confidence was at bottom, before she met Andrea Massi. You know the rest. This song is her only single, and it was released a day before her first race of, what was later discovered, her record season. It got very mixed reception, mostly due to her poor results in the past. People thought, she is mocking of her career and she will never be able to win again (well, guess again :P). Song title says everything - "My Way is My Decision". It is a song about Tina's courage to step forward, and doing what she does best in her own way, something not quite usual for average Slovenian. Authors are Raay (part of Eurovision duo Maraaya), Matjaž Jelen (lead singer of established Slovenian band Šank Rock) and Charlie Mason (co-writer of winning Eurovision song "Rise Like a Phoenix").

    Even the Slovaks are apparently not so excited about getting another world title anymore, I heard some of their sports fans were even not watching the race but playing hockey or something

    Finally, a bit of nice news from the Brazilian team can be shared Last season they were coached by Tobias Torgersen, the coach of the Swedish IBU Cup team, He went to Poland's women's team however (sadly, but deserved), and long story short: Brazil needed a new coach and place to train instead of with Torgersen with Östersund as 'base' in Europe. Well, they found it, and a nice one it is! Together with the Australian team, Brazil will set up base camp in Livigno, Italy, where they will have the fantastic opportunity to have specialist shooting trainers, skiing trainers, technique trainers, a specialist waxman (in fact, he went to five Olympics as waxman of the Italian team), a ton of available equipment and facilities and everything....basically, they're making a huge step in terms of professionalism! Luca Bormolini (the ex-biathlete, older brother of the more succesful Thomas Bormolini) will be the new coach

    Yep, I am liking this game a lot. Also, those obnoxious politically correct people who want to do away with all traditions for no reason at all can go with them..... you know the type who decide that Christmas is no longer an acceptable term and that Winterville would be a much less discriminatory idea. Those people should also be on the ignore list

    Alexia Paganini qualified for Switzerland. She is a US based skater. Her native language is English and she speaks some German. I'm eagerly awaiting for @dcro to come back here and post about his dissatisfaction with Paganini for not speaking fluently Italian, French and Romansh, three languages that are also spoken in Switzerland.

    From today to Sunday Belgrade´s Arena Pionir will host the first round of the IIHF Continental Cup 2017/18, IIHF released in this occasion a interesting reading about the host team CZ Belgrade Guiding star Serbian powerhouse front-runners in development The Crvena Zvezda Belgrade celebrate a win, as of today they will host the first round of the IIHF Continental Cup. Despite a domestic title drought dating back to 2005, Continental Cup first-round host Crvena Zvezda Belgrade is now ready to rise up again at all levels. For a multi-sports club of such great magnitude where only top spot is deemed good enough, Crvena Zvezda (”Red Star”) has been forced to endure twelve painstakingly long seasons as second best. First arch-rivals Partizan Belgrade embarked on a trophy haul of 11 consecutive league titles between 2006-16 before new boys HK Beograd came to the forefront to hoist the domestic championship last season. But with Partizan's senior team currently in hibernation and HK Beograd deciding to pull the plug after just one season in what was then the Hungarian-Romanian MOL Liga, Crvena Zvezda is now stepping out from the shadows for their much-awaited place in the limelight. Hosting Group A of the Continental Cup in Belgrade's Pionir Ice Rink this weekend, the Serbian traditional powerhouse will take on Irbis-Skate Sofia from neighbouring Bulgaria, Turkey's Zeytinburnu Istanbul and newcomers Esja Reykjavik from Iceland. In an attempt to hit the ground running during a season which promises a lot, Crvena Zvezda sharpened their skills in Belarus during an intensive pre-season camp ahead of getting their 2017/18 season underway in the new cross-border International Hockey League, IHL, with road games in Slovenia this month. In the ten-team strong joint-venture between Slovenia, Serbia, and Croatia, Crvena Zvezda appears to have found a fitting stage for their continued progress. “The IHL is a perfect match for us,” said the club's Belarusian head coach Igor Krivoshlyk. “Our goal is to develop Serbian players, not to spend a huge amount of money on imports. At the moment we can afford this league and we are hoping it will be the long-term plan for us. We hope to be competitive with our domestic players and then in the future, we'll see if we are capable of bigger things,” he said. Krivoshlyk first got introduced to Crvena Zvezda during a stint as head coach in 2000/01. Having since amassed vast experience from coaching in the Belarusian leagues as well as in the Russian second-tier league VHL and the junior league MHL, he answered the call to return to Crvena Zvezda last season when he also worked as the head coach of the Serbian U20 national team. Ahead of this season came the sudden demise of two rivals in the Serbian capital, which directly was to benefit Krivoshlyk in his quest for success. With players jumping ship from what once had been HK Beograd, Crvena Zvezda turned effectively overnight into a club version of the Serbian national team that won bronze at the 2017 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Division II Group A in Galati last April. With the senior team now having been considerably bolstered, further down the pecking order Crvena Zvezda is continuing to make strides. Former national team player Jovica Rus is the coordinator for the junior program at Crvena Zvezda where the development of youngsters is following the path of the senior team. Following years were strengthening ties with Hungary had been in focus, attention for the continued progress for the club's next generation is now focused on cooperation with Slovenia and Croatia. During the 2017/18 season, Crvena Zvezda will compete with four different age groups ranging from U12 to U18 in a blossoming international exchange, which the club hopes to reap the rewards of in years to come. “If we play against better opponents we will also get better,” said Rus, who also lines up a few of the challenges hindering hockey’s future prosperity in Serbia: “We need more clubs to have a clear development strategy if we want progress of Serbian hockey. Also, we need improvements in infrastructure. At the moment we only have one operative rink in the whole of Serbia. At least three more are needed,” he said. With an emphatic 7-1 win on the road in Slovenia's Maribor being a fine dress rehearsal for Crvena Zvezda ahead of the Continental Cup, the hosts now hope to turn up the heat in front of their home crowd where sealing top spot would mean participation in the next round played in Brasov, Romania. “Every team wants to win and we are no exception,” said Crvena Zvezda head coach Krivoshlyk. “We have a young team, but also experience with imports and Serbian national team players in our dressing room. Now we want to show the Serbian hockey community that we can play a high level of hockey,” he said.

    One famous politician in Indonesia suddenly became "sick" when he is scheduled to come to the Anti Corruption Commission for some investigation of a major corruption case. It was claimed that his heart is congested, had a stroke, and some other complications While this is a classic excuse for politicians here, it is the first time a picture came out as a "proof". But the photo has many strange things such as smiling wife that looks like saying "Hey honey, wake up, we are being photographed" and a flat line electrocardiogram. Maybe someone with medical qualification can explain more what's wrong in this one picture...

    Looks great! I would suggest also sharing it on the website if you are able to, not just the Facebook page! egyptsportsnetwork.net Also what y'all can do is share the link to the Egyptian Sports Ministry page on Facebook: @EGMoYouth. 'Share' and then 'To page'. If we can put it on the website we can also get a link we can email it with.
