  1. Track Cycling UCI Junior World Championships 2018

    The turn up in these championships is huge Qualifying heats in scratch, point races, omnium. Seems that more countries are interested in developing track. I was also fairly surprised seeing that we sent a decent squad. Already counted 6 athletes and in some disciplines that we don't usually start in.
  2. Track Cycling UCI Junior World Championships 2018

    I have no idea what sort of team do we have here, but three girls seem to have already started.
  3. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Anyways, now that everything is done and dusted, time for some statistics. In 2016 there were 139 medals won and divided by 32 nations, whilst in 2018, there were 150 medals won, but only divided by 27 nations. Nations that had a medal in 2016, but didn't manage to win one in 2018: whilst and the neutral athletes of Russia returned to the medal table. Amount of medals won (changes from 2016 to 2018) - Nation Flag / Medal Difference / (Position in the medal table compared to 2016) +2 (+2) = (-1) +3 (-1) = (+4) +3 (+5) +4 (+9) +4 (+5) +2 (+5) +6 (+8) +2 (-4) -4 (-4) +1 (-7) +6 -7 (-9) -1 (-3) = (+7) -1 (-7) +1 (+7) -1 (-4) = (+5) -1 (=) Outside the top 20 Bulgaria won two medals less Hungary won one medal less Azerbaijan, Estonia, Ireland equal their performance Slovakia, Austria goes up 1 medal Very successful championships for: Greece, Belarus, Ukraine Unsuccessful: Portugal, Turkey And a bit of unnecessary information: the most successful European Championships in Lithuanian history, with only a second gold after 2006 gold medal of Virgilijus Alekna and only the second time after 2012 when more than one medal is won.

    Can I just say that I'm very excited how Totallympics were passionate for this athletics championship, that we've reached TISC comment page levels
  5. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    It's pretty rude to get kicked out of top 8 just by 1cm and by your teammate
  6. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Welp, I'm finally home and I just want to say, this championship is freakin' crazy 4th and 5th place for our women in the race walk. @Wanderer knows that this is not a huge surprise to me, as I predicted Brigita Virbalytė-Dimšienė for bronze, but I did not imagine that she would break the national record by more than one minute Lastly, Živilė Vaiciukevičiūtė was more than spectacular today. She broke her PB by more than three minutes, also walked faster than the national record from Neringa Aidietytė and set a U23 record. She is crazy talented, I did not expect anything better than 10 for her today. This is the best European Championships in Lithuanian history, 2 medals and 6 athletes finished in top 8, plus there's still Agnė in the final hoping to make some magic.

    I wouldn't know how to explain the pronunciation without audio, but the start in Šerkšnienė (Šer) would sound a bit similarly like Cher Let's play a game after the Cher part, there's a light k and then follow up with a sound as if you're shushing someone (ssshhh), then take the 'NIE' part out of the name Daniel, add an 'N' and from the word 'scare' with a british accent take the 'are' part. Cher + k + ssshhh + (DA)nie(L) + n + (SC)are = Šerkšnienė
  8. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Oh my, the way that the european-athletics commentator butchered the names of Lithuanians, I never heard so little effort in my life
  9. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Well, that's a fun ride of disappointment, since I only had enough time to watch the women's race and now I'll be leaving in 40 minutes with nothing
  10. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Well, can't blame the guy, he already broke it three times this year, so I may allow him a break There's more to come from this very ambitious athlete if he keeps on working as hard as he has been for the past couple of years.
  11. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    You tried to ruin my day, Bulgaria, but NOT TODAY
  12. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    It's safe to say that with this medal from Liveta Jasiūnaitė and her beating two of my medal favourites, I no longer care that much about me doing horribly in the prediction contest
  13. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    It's so difficult to stay in one place
  14. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    What a finish for Lewandowski. Also, a very iconic 6th place for Lithuania. Simas Bertašius is the truest example of where hard work can get you. He was nowhere close to the top a couple of years ago, but his determination is out of this world.
  15. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Now it's time for an iconic first ever 1500m final for Lithuanian men. Or any final, other than 100 metres
  16. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    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
  17. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    As far as this day is going, I'm certain that Demireva will go and throw the Javelin 62 metres to make sure that Liveta gets 4th as well
  18. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Well, in all honesty, I had no clue that Airinė would even put up a fight here and thought she'd end in 7-8th. So I guess major thanks to her for managing to make me an emotional wreck for the past 30 minutes but, of course, the disappointment is still large, since it was that close and could have been a joined bronze if not for that unneeded 1.87 mistake.
  19. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Look at all of those faces. The trolling is priceless
  20. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Slow, painful and dragged out heart attacks are always the best.
  21. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    It has been a long time since I felt so much stress watching a competition
  22. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    I CAN"TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT
  23. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Also, if anyone is ever getting 'thanks' from me with their jokes, know that it means that I appreciate it even more than 'haha'
  24. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    On a sidenote, Liveta threw the javelin over 60 metres, so I think she earned herself extra three throws with that one
  25. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Airine, what are you doing to my heart?
