  1. Rowing 2017 Discussion Thread

    sport climbing is everything but stupid (the only wrong thing about it is the olympic competition format, which has nothing to do with this sport as we've always known it)... you should look at other disciplines (surfing, skatebparding, all those "synchro" and "rhytmic" non-sports) for that...
  2. finally we have the detailed schedule... by the way, this time the men's Hockey Gold Medal game won't be the Olympic closer...the women's 30km Classic in Cross-Country Skiing will have this honor (it will start at 3.15 p.m., so 2 hours later than the hockey game)...
  3. Rowing FISA World Championships 2017

    good first day for Italy...all our main crews go straight to the semifinals/quarterfinals (with 3 convincing heat wins)...

    p.s. if this is the future of the Olympic Games...
  7. Skateboarding 2017 Dicussion Thread

    Oskar Rosenberg-Hallberg & Nora Vasconcellos Win 2017 World Championships With the risk of rain ruining the party the worlds best skaters took it apon them selves to bring the heat and light up the custom built skatepark for the 2017 World Championships held on the banks of the Huangpu River in Shanghai, China. Oski Takes The Title Oskar Rosenberg-Hallberg (SWE) linked together a mind blowing run using every inch of the park to be crowned the 2017 Men's Vans Park Series World Champion. Crowd favourite Pedro Barros (BRA) did what he knows best and went huge on his last run to put down a run that placed him in the runner up position. Tom Schaar (USA) continued his amazingly consistent year coming in at 3rd place. Results: http://www.vansparkseries.com/events/2017/mpt/world-championships/results New Level Raised in Women's Skateboarding The level of women's park terrain skating is at an all time high. Leading the way was Nora Vasconcellos who claimed her first major victory on the Vans Park Series. Nora edged out 2016 world champion Brighton Zeuner who continues to raise the bar along with Kisa Nakamura who earned 3rd place for the 2nd year in a row.

  9. Winter Olympic Games 2018 News

    ah, OK... I thought you were referring to Pyeongchang medals as of those in the pictures... I didn't remember Vancouver 2010 medals' shape...my mistake...
  10. Winter Olympic Games 2018 News

    may I ask you where did you find those pictures? because according to the Official Olympic Website (and the best Italian sports website) the Olympic Medals look pretty normal...they do not look like that at all... https://www.pyeongchang2018.com/en/press-releases/korean-culture-celebrated-in-pyeongchang-2018-olympic-winter-games-medals https://www.oasport.it/2017/09/foto-olimpiadi-invernali-pyeongchang2018-svelate-le-medaglie/
  11. Road Cycling UCI World Championships 2017

    Nice start of the Individual competitions for Italy... Women's Junior Time Trial GOLD: PIRRONE Elena, ITA (23:19.72) Silver: VIGILIA Alessia, ITA (+6.38) Bronze: FASNACHT Madeleine, AUS (+42.32) 4th LUDWIG Hannah, GER (+45.45) 5th NOVOLODSKAYA Maria, RUS (+1:09.05) 6th RAAIJMAKERS Marit, NED (+1:20.94) 7th GEORGI Pfeiffer, GBR (+1:22.59) 8th BOSSUYT Shari, BEL (+1:23.46) 9th PATERNOSTER Letizia, ITA (+1:29.61) 10th WIEL Jade, FRA (+1:30.63)
  12. why they should change the rules? now they have already stated that a candidate city can use some infrastructure located in another Country (they did it just to allow Stockholm and/or Helsinki to bid...the Fins didn't even try, but Stockholm was stopped only by a local poll...they already had an agreement with the IOC for 2026)... in any case, it's too early to say what's gonna happen with Milan (there's not a real project yet...it's just me thinking about St. Moritz as the less expensive idea for the sliding events...maybe they could even decide to build a new track inside our Borders)...it was just an interview with our Mayor that yesterday said that this would be an opportunity that deserves to be evaluated very carefully, because the Winter Games could be sustainable (meanwhile the Summer Games are too big to be hoseted in a relatively small town as Milan -even if the whole Metropolitan area is not that small)... by the way, the distance between Milan and Bormio (Valtellina's main resort) is 200km, meanwhile St. Moritz is 330km far away from here... the problem, however, at the moment are different...there are no large streets to go there from Milan...traffic is always a nightmare...if you're lucky, it takes at least 3/3and a half hours to cover the distance (not to mention St. Moritz, which is almost a half day trip to reach from Milan)...
  13. Doping Cases and Bans Thread

    Yevgeniya Kolodko (RUS) loses her medal (in women's Shot Put) from the 2013 Indoor European Championships in Gothemburg because of doping... the new podium places are: Gold: Christina Schwanitz, GER (19,25m) Silver: Alena Abramchuk, BLR (18,85m) Bronze: Chiara Rosa, ITA (18,37m) Source (in Italian only, unfortunately): https://www.oasport.it/2017/09/atletica-doping-per-la-russa-kolodko-arriva-il-bronzo-europeo-per-chiara-rosa/
  14. after being chosen as host of the 2019 IOC Session, Milan is thinking (maybe...you know, in Italy talking about something without knowing the issue and without having real perspective of what it means, it's absolutely normal) about the 2026 Winter Games, with the city hosting ceremonies and ice events and Valtellina (+ the St. Moritz track) hosting the snow and sliding events (don't trust those who already started talking of multi-location Olympics...they just dream of stealing some money with that excuse, but this should be excluded since the beginning)... who knows? I always thought that such a choice would have been better than Turin also in the past... probably I'd support such a candidature...
  15. I hope they don't add almost anything (maybe just Squash, taking mixed doubles and team events off table tennis, tennis and badminton to make room for it), but they make huge adjustments to the 2020 program...
