  1. Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 2017

    The judging in the weightlifting men’s 77 final is dreadful, this Turkmen lifter hasn’t had a single clean and jerk under control and his elbows have been moving every time. Some of the jury members are protesting, but these very central Asian looking chief jurors are waving them away! It’s not just me whose seeing this, the Iraqi amd Uzbekistani coaches aren’t happy either!
  2. Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 2017

    Must be a trend in former soviet dictatorships!! Do you remember Lady Gaga at the Baku 2015 opening ceremony?
  3. Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 2017

    Australia have won a bronze medal in women's taekwondo, making them the first Oceania nation to win a medal at the Asian Games! Hoping Samoa, Fiji and Marshall Islands will join them over the next few days.
  4. Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 2017

    The British commentators were particularly surprised at the 20+kg PB, Turkmenistan seems like a North Korea without the natural talent and helped by a mixture of national sports in the program and drugs!!
  5. Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 2017

    Also Hong Kong have a medal in womens high jump!
  6. Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 2017

    Love how the flame has travelled the country on horseback! Lots of very thoughtful and traditional touches in this ceremony that will be memorable!
  7. Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 2017

    Very strange though that poverty statistics in Turkmenistan don't exist on the internet! You wonder what life outside Ashgabat is like...
  8. Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 2017

    Wait the Wikipedia history of Turkmenistan has been saved for the ceremony!
  9. Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 2017

    I wonder what he's talking about? Reading out the Wikipedia page on the history and economic possibilities of Turkmenistan!
  10. Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 2017

    Looking at the weightlifting entry lists, Samoa, Fiji and Marshall Islands all have athletes with really good chances to medal and even take gold.
  11. Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 2017

    That does look odd that the entire audience are wearing matching track suits and caps! Might be a strange dress code for Turkmenistani sports events!
  12. Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 2017

    That's every Stan with a medal!!
  13. Totallympics Open International Song Contest 2017

    GB will be there!
  14. 2024 and 2028 Olympic Games Host Cities Election

    I still think the IOC would rather go for India than Doha or Baku (India doesn't quite carry the controversy associated with the other 2). Budapest rumoured to be hosting 2023 Youth Olympics so if that goes well they could be in with a shout for 2032.
  15. 2024 and 2028 Olympic Games Host Cities Election

    India... would be a fantastic and exciting Olympics after 2 games in cities that have held the games before.

  19. Great result for GB!! Our first ever women's cross country medal in the Olympic event!
  20. Birmingham has been chosen over Liverpool to be England's candidate for hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Birmingham now needs to prove to the treasury that bringing the games to the West Midlands will be value for money as 75% of the costs will come from the taxpayer.
