  1. First GP of the season is in progress... After Yuzuru Hanyu's free skate around 1000 teddy bears were thrown onto the ice. And after he got defeated eventually camera showed some Japanese girls crying in the stands. Come on, it's not the end of the World.

    This fence.
  3. Track Cycling 2017 Discussion Thread

    Dutch coaches are doing some tampering with sprint quarterfinals.
  4. Track Cycling 2017 Discussion Thread

    Bad results for Great Britain, nobody saw that one coming...
  5. Women's Volleyball FIVB World Championship 2018

    RIP Trinidad and Tobago
  6. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    Don't forget the mighty Faroe Islands, Latvia and Andorra.
  7. Apparently FIS is thinkingabout throwing skiathlon out of the big events and introducing biathlon-alike pursuit instead. All for the urban generation, of course.
  8. Archery WA World Championships 2017

    Wow, our men's team finished 4th in the team compound seeding. Too bad that nobody cares about recurve here... And recurve is the cheaper discipline, among other things...

    She reached the minimum eligibility requirements at a CCI3* competition in Fair Hill (67 dressage or better, clear jumping and not more than 30 time penalties in XC, not more than 16 jumping penalties in show jumping). There are not too many opportunities to reach the needed MERs in CCI3*/4* in a season. Moguel for example entered Kentucky 4* in April (eliminated in XC), then re-routed to Jersey Fresh 3* in May (got more then 30 time pens in XC), and now she made it at the end of the season.

    Meanwhile on the other side of the Atlantic, Dani Moguel has ensured her qualification for the WEG next year.
  11. There isn't any. Apparently there are no extra requirements for skaters who are making their Olympic debut.
  12. 2026 Winter Olympic Games

    Referendum for an European city will fail. What a shock.
  13. Two reallocations will be hard to come by though. The only somewhat likely one is Kazakhstan declining their second quota. Their second best skater is injured apparently and it doesn't seem like anyone else could reach the MERs.

    And currently we have only 4 riders out of 15 starters jumping clear. That's a challenging cross-country course.
  15. Equestrian 2017 Discussion Thread

    It's the so called short format competition. Dressage, jumping and 6 minutes cross-country. Short format competitions are often used as a preparation for the long formats, or for the riders/horses that are making their debut at the 3* level.

    One of the last 3* competitions of the eventing season, short format in Strzegom, will be streamed here starting around 12:30 (the cross-country phase)... Leaderboard is available here. Btw, this should be the first 3* competition in history that has not 1, but 2 Lithuanian riders competing.
  17. Oh, dear, that's roller skiing on 35 degrees.
  18. Athletics 2017 Discussion Thread

    I wonder if the athletes competing in run-jump-throw will have to run 100/200m, then immediately perform a long jump and after that throw a javelin. Of course, they will have to carry javelin during running and jumping parts.
  19. Athletics 2017 Discussion Thread

    "Run-jump-throw", WTF The Hunt-Pursuit relay sound like some equestrian event. 3 very specific field events, for whatever reason. And a knock-out format.
  20. Jungbluth scored some great FIS points in yesterday's race. His average is now 308, so he should be able to secure first ever Ecuadorian qualification by the end of the Sao Carlos races.
  21. The Committee lost its Moroccan member.
