  1. Giro d'Italia 2018

    Nibali and Quintana are attacking!
  2. Fencing 2018 Discussion Thread

    3rd. Also Luperi vs Imboden in the quarterfinals. But the Italian Federation should have a word with Errigo for next season, it's clear that competing at the highest level in 2 weapons is not possible anymore.

  4. I don't know what will happen with the points gained in the World League. European Championships only count towards the CEV ranking, which should (?) be used to determine the teams in the European Qualification Tournament. But nothing is confirmed yet, I don't think that this new system has been approved by the IOC.
  5. If I understand correctly (using a translator of course) this Polish article https://m.sportowefakty.wp.pl/siatkowka/754977/to-juz-pewne-zmieni-sie-system-kwalifikacji-do-tokio-2020-z-korzyscia-dla-polski also says that the Volleyball Nations League would not be considered in the new world ranking

    And as expected in alpine skiing a parallel slalom should replace the alpine combined (draft calendar for 2019-2022 updated yesterday: http://www.fis-ski.com/mm/Document/documentlibrary/AlpineSkiing/04/33/14/longterm_18.05.2018_Neutral.pdf )

    French tennis player Alize Cornet has had a charge for missing three drug tests in a 12-month period dismissed by an independent tribunal after reporting the buzzer to her apartment was broken : https://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1065113/cornet-avoids-sanction-after-charge-for-missing-three-drugs-tests-dismissed-by-tribunal A decision from the International Skating Union (ISU) to clear double Olympic short track medallist Yara van Kerkhof despite abnormal blood values in her biological passport has been appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) https://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1065136/wada-to-appeal-isu-decision-to-clear-van-kerkhof-following-abnormal-blood-values-in-biological-passport
  9. Do you have a link to this Polish site? Wikipedia says the same, citing the Asian Volleyball Confederation meeting: http://asianvolleyball.net/2018/05/avc-ba-meeting-agree-to-boost-social-media-strategy/#more-24454
  10. Giro d'Italia 2018

    At least Yates* is not afraid to attack in every stage in which he can gain seconds, but boring Dumoulin can make a big difference in the time trial. I hope both of them have a bad day, I prefer Pinot and Pozzovivo.

    Samba was in the World Championships final last year...and he was in 3rd position at the last hurdle before stumbling and ending in 7th. Brianna Rollins (now Brianna McNeal) already back from her disqualification.
  23. Giro d'Italia 2018

    All teams are paid appearance fees and they sign a contract: if the bring their top riders, the fee will be higher. But when they signed this contract, the Giro organizers didn't know that Froome tested positive. There are rumors that, before the positive test was known, Sky and Froome also received money (up to 2 millions) from the Israeli organization that wanted Froome at the start.
  24. Giro d'Italia 2018

    The Giro organizers don't want Froome anymore (UCI announced his positive test just after the Giro presentation, Froome winning and then being banned would be a nightmare for the organizers), but they can't ban him. Either UCI or Sky should have suspended him.
