  1. Women's Football FIFA World Cup 2019

    And Jamaica will go directly to the World Cup, beating Panama 4-2 in penalty kicks, after finishing 2-2 in regular and extra time.
  2. Judo IJF Junior World Championships 2018

    Wow, a 5th place by Moises Rosado in men's -55kg... I think this could be Mexico's top finish in a world championship.
  3. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    I agree, judging is very open and subjective... however, as with gymnastics, each element of the dive shall be performed according to the rules; yet as you correctly point out, it would be better if each of those elements were given a value, and then deductions taken if not perfect
  4. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Ok I've read the article and if I got the facts correctly, in Argentina there's a prohibition to advertise and hand out sodas to children and teenagers due to health concerns because of their sugar and sodium levels. So a NGO requested the Argentinian judicial system a precautory meassure to declare unconstitutional and annul a public contract between the city's covernment and Coca Cola, by which the former agreed to pay Coca Cola $35 million local currency to allow them to distribute their product during the Games refering to it as a "hidratation" service According to the article the court's (IDIOTIC & UNLAWFUL) ruling stated: 1) that Coke's products weren't covered by said health prohibition. 2) that the judicial system could not enforce the city to apply those restrictions since this was a power reserved to the legislative branch. 3) and finally, that to annul the contract would damage the development of an international event like the YOG's So in summary, this corrupt pathetic excuse of a judge basically and plainly stated that law is to be ignored by private economic interest. That my friends in Latin American constitutional theory of the XXth and XXIst centuries at its best.

    Great talents... hope they got more support and continue their success as juniors and seniors. Very impressive job in this sport from Egypt
  6. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Yes Gold for Randall Willars in men's 10 platform Great final round for him, not perfect, but good enough to medal, especially with judges awarding scores as they wanted, very irregular Also congrats to our girl race walker for that silver and our girl boxer for securing Mexico's 12th medal. Too bad our archer today got the "Serrano-Valencia" syndrome and totally failed in the most important round, still she's very good for being only 15 years old.
  7. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    And it's official, no medal for China in 3m springboard.
  8. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    On more relevant news, Chinese diver bombed his first dive, earning 0's... he may be in trouble to even medal
  9. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Mexican flag upside down
  10. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    And Cuba won gold in women's discus
  11. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Second gold for Mexico
  12. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Thanks for the answer... cross my fingers now; a good measure is that he didn't get crushed by the Russian, but again I don't know too much about this sport, except that we've improved a little in greco thanks to Cuban coaches.
  13. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Well, Mexico sucks in freestyle, so I think this could be interesting.
  14. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    @MHSN you think Mexican wrestler has a good shot at bronze against the one from Egypt?
  15. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    And Mexican athletes continue to earn bronzes... 2 more today. I wonder if they will try to go for a silver
  16. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Another bronze medal for Mexico, this time in wrestling. Still six to win to surpass Nanjing's total. Good performance by our male canoer, our girl race walker and both archers. Diving start tomorrow, so there will be a lot of expectation.
  17. And Jamaica's done it. A great performance, crushing the Cuban team 9-0, with still 8+ minutes to play. Cuba probably with the worst record in the tournament finals, with no goals and 29 against so far.
  18. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    No medals today for Mexico, but some good results. In swimming, we have another finalist (CAC Games Champion in women's 100m butterfly) and two other semifinalists. Plus our competitor in men's 400m finished in provisional 1st place Let's hope tomorrow will see more encouraging results.
  19. @vinipereira I´m waiting for that post blaming the Mexican team
  20. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Well, another day, another bronze for Mexico, but I'm not clag with the mediocre display of our competitor in the semi, which in no way discredits the amazing performance by the eventual champion from Iran. Also dissapointed by our women's hockey team and both of our artistic gymnast, who threw a rather decent performance to end missing out the AA final.
  21. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Great performance by Valinejad... after knocking out the Mexican girl with an amazing return, I was rooting for her. I admire for her true courage
  22. Mexico is out of World Cup, after losing 0-2 to Panama. Well done for It will be interesting, whether them or Jamaica will be the new debuting country. This also gives some chance to Argentina, as they're a better team on paper.
  23. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Another good day for Mexico, with a bronze in men's weightlifting and a silver in women's sabre Also happy to have 2 semifinalists in 3 events in swimming, with one of them making to the finals in men's 50m backstroke, and also our rower qualifying to the semis s in single sculls and of course our women 3x3 winning their first two matches. A little dissapointed by Cervantes in men's foil, because I was expecting a medal from him after a good pools round, but again he fails in the important match.
  24. Well, they should be favorites to win against Cuba or at least tie. And with the poor level Mexican are showing, everything is possible for the Jamaicans.
