  1. Equestrian FEI World Games 2018

    1) How many contestants does this contest have? 2) Is there anyone besides him who cares about (follows) non-olympic events like reining? 3) I don't doubt that he knows much about this sport (although the provisional standing in a single predictions contest with very few participants doesn't prove anything), but my point is that his predictions concerning Germany at the 2020 olympic were ridiculous and therefore i offered him a bet. The fact that he isn't willing to take any of them (although the odds would be sensational for him, if his assessment of the current state of german eventing would be correct) pretty much proves that he was just bullshitting and everyone who doesn't believe it just has to look up when Germany last didn't win a single medal at a major event or finished outside the top 5. By the way: In 2010 Germany finished 5th in the team and Jung won individual gold (the same result Germany would have had this year if it wouldn't have been for Klimke's silly mistake, without the best german rider even competing), 2 years later Germany won 2 gold medals at the olympics.
  2. Equestrian FEI World Games 2018

    He is clearly delusional, Germany won at least one eventing medal at the last 7 major competitions. This time Klimke threw away gold, so Germany was unlucky to not win the individual gold despite not even having their best rider here. Krajewski, Jung, Auffarth and Klimke won silver in Rio and i still need to hear why the exact same team won't be even top 5 in 2020 like dcro predicted, if Krajewski learns to do cross-country it would be downright insane to not predict gold for Germany, but that's an other discussion for now. All the facts are against him and by the fact that he isn't willing to put his money where his mouth is, you can tell that even he himself doesn't believe in his "prediction".

    Just say that you are broke, then we can find another way to make this happen. Sadly you are the only one here having no clue what he is talking about, but please tell me when was the last time that Germany didn't win at least one eventing medal at a major event? I also didn't want to be sadistic, that's why i only wanted to make this about 100 euros, since i assumed even that would be a lot of money for someone like you. You said Germany would be lucky to win one medal, although since 2006 (it would have been 2004 if Hoy wouldn't have been robbed back then) Germany always won at least one medal (thats 7 major events in a row), so don't act as if what you said was in any way reasonable. You have no arguments on your side and aren't even man enough to put your money where your mouth is, just pathetic once again. Not to mention the fact that you can't even talk to someone directly if you want to discuss, just like a little school girl that shies away from confrontation and therefore talks about someone behind his/her back.

    1/2) USA, Netherlands Rest: Germany, Ireland, Belgium, France, GB, Switzerland, Sweden all about the same Ireland is constantly overperforming this year, so they are probably a lock as well. No chance: Italy
  5. Equestrian FEI World Games 2018

    Haha, like i said before, i am willing to take a bet, especially against someone who doesn't know how to quote despite spending most of his life on this website. I don't know about your financial situation, so i would offer you a smaller bet: 100 euros to you if GB finishes ahead of Germany in the team competition in 2020 or 100 euros to you if GB wins more eventing medals in 2020 than Germany otherwise I get 100 euros from you

    Crazy year for Ireland, once in a century luck for them. First hockey, then rowing and now equestrian. Just sad that they didnt do it in an olympic year. I think it would be great for them to win 1 medal at the olympics in rowing, equestrian and hockey combined.
  7. Equestrian FEI World Games 2018

    They have a good chance for silver in 2020, thats for sure. Given how bad GB is in dressage and jumping currently, this would certainly be very important for british riding.
  8. Equestrian FEI World Games 2018

    I am sure that Germany will win double gold in Tokyo, currently i would take any bet on that. Jung and Klimke are safe in the team, the question is who out of Auffarth and Krajewski will take the 3rd place. I still believe in Krajewski and if she learns how to do the cross-country, Germany will be the huge favorite. Very sad that Hoy retired, she deserved an olympic gold after she got robbed in 2004.

    Very interesting progression by Mayer in the 100 m sprint, he never seemed to have any talent in this event and then in his 20s he suddenly exploded and became a super-sprinter. I thought that Kaul would take the world record directly from Eaton, but Mayer made it considerably more difficult now, if Kaul shows the same development in the sprints, he will definitely take the world record, otherwise it will be very difficult.
  10. Rowing FISA World Championships 2018

    Overall absolutely shocking performance by the german rowing team. Another huge disappointment after the horrible results at the shooting world championships. Germany should never win less medals in rowing than any other nation except for GB and maybe New Zealand. 2 golds and 4 medals in total should be the absolute minium at every major competition. Men's eight and womens quadruple sculls are locks for medals in Tokyo, but the other 2 medals have to come from 2 out of men's single sculls, men's quadruple sculls and men's lightweight double sculls. Insane overperformances by Ireland and Canada, on the other hand GB and New Zealand were also pretty bad.
  11. Equestrian FEI World Games 2018

    You still think that she will screw it up for team Germany? Coincidence that both better scores are from 2002? Would be absolutely crazy if Germany could win the team gold without Jung and Auffarth. No matter what happens here, Germany (Jung, Auffarth, Klimke, Krajewski) not winning gold in Tokyo would be a huge shock for me.
  12. Tennis US Open 2018

    If they wont change it to best of 3, Zverev will never win a slam. Personally i prefer best of 3, thats why i prefer watching womens tennis. Best of 5 just takes to long, its the same as with football. I think i never watched a full football/best of 5 match because after 2-3 hours it just gets too boring for me.
  13. Figure Skating ISU Junior Grand Prix 2018 - 2019

    Trusova ... remember the name! Would really like to take a peek at the laboratory where russia is creating all their female talents year after year.
  14. Tennis US Open 2018

    If she was the mistake, then what would you call Bartoli or Pennetta? Personally i blame Kerber, it was her slam to lose and somehow she managed to need 3 sets to beat Hsieh and then to choke the match away against Halep, otherwise i am 99% sure that she would have won the title.
  15. Tennis US Open 2018

    Yes, Felix has everything it takes, but there is a huge question mark whether his health issues will allow him to play multiple best of 5 matches in a short time in the future. Who knows, maybe ATP will decide to have best of 3 at slams too, then Felix and Zverev might have a serious chance at slams.
