  1. Sereikaitė was not that far away from qualification in any of the distances, but unfortunately fell and injured her back... Very unsuccessfully season for her, way outside her form, yet it was Olympic qualification season and its over for her with no Olympics
  2. Winter Olympic Games 2018 Uniforms

    the most boring and ugliest one so far...
  3. Modern Pentathlon 2017 Discussion Thread

    And a surprise - Lina Batulevičiūtė wins Champion of Champions Silver to Alice Sotero and Elodie Clouvel in third.
  4. Sailing 2017 Discussion Thread

    Robert Scheidt and Gintarė Scheidt officialy announced about their retirement from competitive sailing on social media.
  5. Rowing FISA World Championships 2017

    4th twice... So annoying.
  6. Figure Skating 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    Good start by pair in ice dance, but I guess we will have to let go the Olympic quota again as there won't be a chance for A.Reed to gain Lithuanian citizenship, especially after last Tobias situation...

  9. I agree that top 4-6 athletes should always be in Olympics regardless of nation, but dismiss those "Chinese or Kazakh athletes that nobody cares for" (like somebody mentioned here before) and it's no longer the Olympics for me. Let's take such an undeveloped sport as Canoeing slalom and remove those asian/african/small-oceanian quotas and you are left just with a smaller part of Europe + US/CAN/AUS. Is this really an event that deserves to be kept in Olympics then? NO! And if you disagree - then why just stop with canoeing slalom? Let's remove all of the continental quotas from basketball and let's have 4 teams from USA, 2 from Spain, 2 from Serbia, 2 from Lithuania and 2 from Argentina, because let's be real - who cares if Africa or Asia sends a team to basketball tournament... And let's have 60 out of 64 archers from South Korea, instead on wasting archery quotas on Slovakia or Finland... And my favourite Table tennis - 100% Chinese NOC, because let' be realistic - all top 180 players in China will be way stronger than any other table tennis player around the world. I understand that I'm overreacting here, I'm just not a fan of isolating poor countries from opportunity to participate at the Olympics.
  10. Shooting ISSF Shotgun World Championships 2017

    I know, right! I mean you have to respect Susan Nattrass as she achieved so much in her shooting career - but as a commentator she just a bit annoying because she interested more in the colour of glasses that shooters are wearing rather than competition itself.
  11. Shooting ISSF Shotgun World Championships 2017

    Oh come on! They completely ruined the broadcast - no footage of target itself.... At least that red/green emoji is cute....
  12. Shooting ISSF Shotgun World Championships 2017

    Team medals: Women's Junior Trap 1st 2nd 3rd Women's Trap 1st 2nd 3rd
  13. Of course no... I don't understand what IOC trying to reach by slowly destroying Olympics with new/trendy/progressive (and other nonsense words they used) events and sports (although I don't want to call video games as a sport) introduced to the games. Pus - again this would decrease the number of athletes per traditional sports ... Or maybe let's just cancel the games completely and IOC will be live streaming players from around the world playing Olympics simulator on Twitch....
  14. Summer Universiade 2017

    With victory against USA in basketball and third gold medal Lithuania finished in 2017 Universiade. 3 golds, 1 silver, 3 bronze. Currently one of the worst performances for Lithuania (f.e.: 2011 - 5G5S3B; 2013-6G1S3B; 2015-5G1S3B) although I'm still quite pleased. Many disappointments in our athletics team as quite a few athletes had medal worth PB's and underperformed. Also no medal in weightlifting was very disappointing (but since I don't support Lithuanian weightlifting - not a tragedy).
  15. Wrestling 2017 Discussion Thread

    If they are introducing 10 weights for women - why they need to cut it off on 76kg? Do at least 80kg or 85kg. Those categories every 2kg is just ridiculous and hurting the level of respect for the sport of wrestling.
  16. Weightlifting 2017 Discussion Thread

    I would prefer ban those countries anyway. Specially in non-Olympic season just to show this won't be tolerated. Although there are way more corrupted federations than this short list. If there is no other way to send this message except by having a world championships were countries like Samoa or Solomon Islands will win all of the medals - so be it. For example situation in Lithuanian federation is just horrible: son of the head coach tested positive for doping twice, leader of the national team already served 2 years ban, every other lifter that wins a medal (f.e. in European championships) all of the sudden gets injured and dissapear from sport for a year while coach cross him out from national team and that makes him no longer a subject for regular testing in Lithuanian anti-doping agency and etc...
  17. Unfortunately Laura don't want to start in relay, so Justinas will be competing together with Lina Batulevičiūtė. Don't have a lot of hope for Lina, although she might surprise everyone like she surprised with silver in women relay back in 2015 World Champs.
  18. 7th medal for Kinderis in World Championships. Did expect one medal from Laura (especially after fencing today), but this one from Kinderis was a little bit of a surprise.
  19. Summer Universiade 2017

    Can someone give UK's Eurosport commentator an atlas? He keeps mixing Burkina Faso with Burundi in triple jump...
  20. I bet that's Myanmar.
  21. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    Gudžius - completely irrelevant? Olympic finalist, Countless medals in World and Junior age championships (Youth, Junior, U23...) .... Stahl - completely irrelevant? He was 5th in last World Championships... Harting still has a chance, no need to act like a sore looser already.
  22. Baseball 2017 Discussion Thread

    and qualified for 2019 European Championships. Historical victory for Lithuanians against Russia as country for the first time ever get a right to compete in Elite division, while Austria won over Israel and coming back to championships for the first time since 2007.
  23. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    They had to announce it at least a year ago... Standard is 4:30 and it has to be reached by 25 July (tomorrow)... So this year only 5 athletes achieved that standard: Inês HENRIQUES 01 MAY 1980 POR 1 Porto de Mós 15 JAN 2017 Hang YIN 07 FEB 1997 CHN 1 Huangshan 05 MAR 2017 Kathleen BURNETT 07 OCT 1988 USA 1 Santee, CA 28 JAN 2017 Shuqing YANG 30 AUG 1996 CHN 2 Huangshan 05 MAR 2017 Erin TALCOTT 21 MAY 1978 USA 2 Santee, CA 28 JAN 2017 In 2016 - not even a single athlete achieved qualification standard....
