  1. Judo IJF World Championships 2018

    The 20 years old one has a dictator-mom-coach ... the whole country found out that she gained 2 (friggen 2!) kilos on the TV. Gaining weight in heptathlon is unacceptable because it changes your technics. She's tall and skinny but she competed with seniors in women's javelin (not heptathlon) where you need a strong upper body (ie. more weight). She's phenomenal. You can see another one with your own eyes at the YOG Yaroslava Mahuchikh (she's just turned 17 yesterday ). Even if she won't set the world youth record she's just 2 cm beneath it which is quite impressive. Gaining weight in high jump is tragic and it also decreases results immediately. The only way to gain weight is to increase muscles in your feet but it doesn't compensate a lot & it works better for men than women. The only way out is to stay in the stable shape all the time. I live in high jump mecca (national record, Olympic medals etc) so I've seen a lot of talented girls. Nutrition is the base knowledge, at least here. She's 180cm tall and her weight is 54kg (!) only. Her upper limit is 58. All of them are doomed to control their weight for a decade or even 2 but the final goal is worth it.
  2. Judo IJF World Championships 2018

    What does make you think that she's not developed already? We have 2 similar teens in athletics (1 has held the world record, another one will try to achieve it). One of them will turn 20 in February but she's still skinny and has the same proportions like 3 years ago.

    The best news of today
  6. Biathlon IBU Summer Biathlon World Championships 2018

    Fialkova Merkushina o___0. She's been preparing in Obertilliach before Nove Mesto unlike others who chose less difficult places. Pidhrushna skipped 1 month of trainings because of problems with a shoulder but she showed quite good shape too. Disappointed in Semerenko sisters, esp Valya... first - wrong roller skis, now - high temperature, what a disastrous championships for her.
  7. Biathlon IBU Summer Biathlon World Championships 2018

    Yassss, our hot (straight) twink got silver as for girls... another 4th place, lol. Hanna Kovalenko fell & bruised her ribs & knees because somebody's bib number fell off and stuck in her roller skis.
  8. Biathlon IBU Summer Biathlon World Championships 2018

    @hckosice Not bad. I guess. He was having his moment today, the 1st start after such long absense so tomorrow will be... different((. After having a nervous breakdown, bitching/threatening/screaming at the Head coach, allegedly physically attacking his team partner & being kicked out of the team in the middle of the season... literally he was left at the side of the road with his bags He blamed ex-Russian biathletes that they are paid more (they said it themselves) and that Sanitra is pro-Russian. Kilchitskiy is known for helping our army so the situation became quite dangerous. The president of our federation called him mentally unstable. He had to work as a hockey coach, go through a mental expertise and prove that he's not crazy and he can carry a weapons. The president of the federation allowed him to come back and Sanitra worked on his shooting + cross-country in the mountains. Today we've got the result Damn, he had a lot of things to prove! And dayyyuuum, we can't live without drama
  9. Athletics 2018 Discussion Thread

    The most popular Ukrainian band of all times gave a concert yesterday on the Independence Day. At the Olympic Stadium. They used Maryna Bekh, Alina Shukh and other pics of our athletes for the huge background LED: The concert was attended by 100 000 people.
  10. Biathlon IBU Summer Biathlon World Championships 2018

    Lyubov Kipyachenkova fell very bad yesterday and lost consciousness. Today she was competing with a sewn eyebrow and bruised ribs. Valya Semerenko said that organizers gave her a different rollers and her periosteum (her old injury) hurt really hard during the whole race. Pryma shot faster than usual yesterday + he wanted to greet us with Independence Day probably... well, they all "greeted", except Vita
  11. [OFF TOPIC] Politics Thread

    Not really If rightist nazies stopped being such sickos and started making babies instead of wasting their time on hatred & violence ... Eliminate people who fuel conflicts in Muslim countries instead of trading with them & improve European fertility rate. Nothing else is needed.

  13. [OFF TOPIC] Politics Thread

    The original source is WikiLeaks so I highly doubt the origin of the emails and if they're real at all, esp considering their connection with Russia. Even if Moroccan king sponsored her fund, he didn't sponsor her. Clinton doesn't receive any financial compensation from the foundation. + she wasn't a state secretary back then so it's not a corruption Receiving millions for just meeting 1 asshole. Damn, I'd met even Putin after that... milk those Russian money and give it to our defence
