    Okay, I'M SORRY. This evening, I can't, too much emotions I don't remember the last time that I felt like this, two very similar scenarios, two very different outcomes. One very talented young lady - Liveta Jasiūnaitė saving the day for Lithuania and winning an extremely unexpected bronze medal, but a medal that means so so so much. Seeing a medal from someone other than Gudžius or Palšytė means trumendously for Lithuania, this is one of the most successful European Championships for us. I'm extremely happy with what I got to experience today and this is one of the days that'll stick with me for my entire life, just like Athens 2004 with Skujytė

    Final Standing available here Dunadan EselTheDonkey OlympicsFan What a day for @Dunadan! Two medals, bronze and gold one! It was a "photo finish", leading most of the time, but eventually winning the race. Two perfect prediction brought him the win: Men's Hammer Throw and Women's 200m. Another medal for you and team Italy! Congratulation! What second half of the championships for @EselTheDonkey! Very close to win the event, but one perfect prediction on Men's 400m Hurdles was enough for silver only this time. But I am sure he's satisfied with his second medal in a very few events he entered! Congrats It was either team Italy or team Germany, and Germany prevailed! Congrats @OlympicsFan on winning bronze medal. Great predictions throughout the championships. @Henry_Leon was there, but few points short for the podium. Finally top 5 showing for our beloved Belgian @heywooduGreat debut for @Speedy, another top 10 for @dcro and maybe a bit disappointing end contest-wise for @Monzanator but I believe he's actually very happy with the results of Polish athletes. Decent result for @chrischi08 and @Pablita Special thanks to my little elf @Werloc for all the help Thank you everyone for participation. General Standings coming in next three days and then we'll have few weeks break before we start our "fall season". I definitely need time off Until mid-September

    Oh come on, if there is one showcase to actually show the world what you're capable of in terms of Olympic hosting hopes, it's the Asian Games...and then they screw it up with amateur stuff like this That website...man, it's like they hired a 12-year old who finished some HTML classes, all that's missing is a glitter marquee scrolling from right to left.

    Honestly, it's the colonial empires that mostly "profit" from non-European born athletes. Whether it's current or former colonies. Also rich countries, so in a sense the rich get richer. That's the trend. I don't think there's an objective way to Iook at it, so discussions are kind of pointless...

    Μοναδικές στιγμές για την ελληνική κωπηλασία στο Παγκόσμιο πρωτάθλημα Εφήβων-Νεανίδων η αυλαία του οποίου έπεσε σήμερα Κυριακή στο Ρατσίτσε της Τσεχίας. Εκεί όπου η Ελλάδα πανηγύρισε τρία μετάλλια (δύο είχε κατακτήσει πέρυσι στο Τρακάϊ ασημένιο και χάλκινο) εκ των οποίων ένα χρυσό και δυο ασημένια ενώ οι Έλληνες αθλητές πέτυχαν δυο νέα παγκόσμια ρεκόρ στα ημιτελικά και συνολικά είχαμε τέσσερις παρουσίες σε τελικούς σε έξι συμμετοχές. Χρυσές : Στο ψηλότερο σκαλί του βάθρου ανέβηκε το πλήρωμα της δικώπου άνευ των Νεανίδων με τις Χριστίνα Μπούρμου-Μαρία Κυρίδου. Τα δυο κορίτσια που την προηγούμενη στον ημιτελικό είχαν κάνει νεο παγκόσμιο ρεκόρ με 7:15.53 κέρδισαν το χρυσό τερματίζοντας σε 7:17.10 ενώ τη 2ηθέση πήραν οι ΗΠΑ με 7:23.61 και την 3ηη Τσεχία με 7:26.71. Aσημένιοι: Το πρώτο τους μετάλλιο σε Παγκόσμιο πρωτάθλημα κατέκτησε και οι Ισμήνη Νόνη- Ελένη Αγιώτη που πήραν τη 2ηθέση στο τελικό του διπλού νεανίδων. Τα δυο κορίτσια αν και με την λιγότερη εμπειρία από τις αντιπάλους τους ξεκίνησαν 3εςστον τελικό , μετά τα πρώτα 500μ. πέρασαν στην 2ηθέση , άντεξαν στις επιθέσεις των αντιπάλων τους για να τερματίσουν με χρόνο 7:19.40 πίσω από τις Κινέζες που πήραν το χρυσό με 7:17.41 ενώ την 3ηθέση κέρδισε η Ν Ζηλανδία με 7:20.10 Από το ίδιο αγώνισμα , το διπλό σκιφ ,αλλά τους εφηβους ήρθε και το δεύτερο ασημένιο μετάλλιο. Οι Πέτρος Γκαϊδατζής-Γρηγόρης Σχιζοδήμος που στον ημιτελικό είχαν σημειώσει νέο παγκόσμιο ρεκόρ κατάφεραν σε μια πολύ απαιτητική κούρσα με πολύ έντονο συναγωνισμό να κατακτήσουν την 2ηθέση και να προσθέσουν το τρίτο μετάλλιο για την Ελλάδα στο σχετικό πίνακα. Με τα τρία μετάλλια η Ελλάδα κατέλαβε την 5ηθέση στο σχετικό πίνακα του Παγκοσμίου πρωταθλήματος με πρώτες τις ΗΠΑ (2-3-1) και στη συνέχεια τις Ιταλία (2-1-1),Τσεχία (2-0-1) και Γερμανία (1-2-1)

    Baseball is just not a good fit for the Olympics. The roster size is huge (24, no other team sports have more than 18 players per team), the venues are specialized, and the games are very high varience and so dependent on the pitching rotation. That and as long as MLB players aren’t competing Olympic baseball is a joke.

    Thoughts about men's and women's middle distance: (This will be a bit shorter, than last update) Women's middle distance: Before I come to the podium I first have to comment on a certain swedish woman. Tove Alexandersson is the talk of the town after her race. She made som HUGE mistakes in the beginning of the race. These mistakes costed her the chance for a podium place, so the dream of becoming the first woman/athlete to win 5 medals at the same WCH is over. Now to a more happier note, the podium. Nathalia Gemperle won her first individual gold medal after an impressive run. Another first time was the woman on the second place, Marika Teini. She also won her first individual medal in her career. All good things come in threes, also this podium. Isia Basset was the third woman, who could celebrate her first individual medal, which also was her first medal at a WCH. Her name will also be part of French Orienteering history by becoming the first French female runner to win a medal at a WCH. Men's middle distance. Where there is a forest, there is always someone from Norway winning a medal. Not surprinsingly, Norway shows their strenght when the distance is middle or long. This time it was Eskil Kinneberg who ran a well-deserved gold medal home to the land of fjords. He won his first medal at a WCH, and why not start with a gold. Daniel Hubmann continues his reign as King of Swiss orieentering by winning a new medal, this time silver. The bronze went to fellow Swiss competitor, Florian Howald, who continued the trend of the day by winning his first individual medal a WCH. The theme or trend of the day is first-time medallists. We have more races today. The relays are on the program. The women's relay is already over, and the men's are still going at the moment, so we will know the result in about half an hour. I will post the results from today's races when the men's relay is over, and I will come with an update, hopefully, before the long distance for men and women on saturday.
