  1. That's not what I meant.
  2. Then, World Equestrian Games as the first Olympics qualifer (any sport), just like last time ? Only 13 months to go
  3. Doping Cases and Bans Thread

    I really don't think they do. Previous figures had cycling much higher. Obisously, I'm wrting that after Gianlu33 post
  4. Doping Cases and Bans Thread

    Yeah, they just picked some random numbers in a hat.
  5. Athletics 2017 Discussion Thread

    Yes Durban, most likely. But again, the timing could not be worse for an african bid.
  6. Athletics 2017 Discussion Thread

    After Doha (low attendance high risk) and Eugene (limited seating capacity), I really don't see IAAF taking any risk with 2023. So most likeley back to Europe or Japan.
  7. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    The championships are over, it's tables times Medals table Placing table For anyone interested, I've also updated my historic placing table (here). Poland, The Netherlands and Great Britain scored an all time high, when Italy and Ukraine hited an all time low (Russia too, but that was expected)
  8. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    It wont' be competitive enough until Germany wins a medal.
  9. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    His four jumps so far have been all kind of awfull, tbh. Mayer's third jump @ 5.10 for anyone interested.
  10. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    Never doubted him.
  11. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    Not quite, he'll need to hit his PBs (or very near) in the three remaining events.
  12. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    The canadian apocalypse championships are still on with Warner trying his best to keep on with the mood.
  13. Good news for the first part About the second one, I guess you're not a fan of supply economics ? I don't really see how having threads with no general interest is such a bad idea. At worst, they will be short lived and forgotten, at best, they will allow more users to engage on more subjects for a longer period of time. They might even trigger new users to post on these subjects. If anything, more threads means more different pages to be indexed, and thus more chances to be find out via a random google search.. tbh, every popular board I know let users post their own thread (under some guidance ofc)
  14. I hate to be that guy. But we really need some more active mods that actually ban people from posting. The shitshow and constant OT by a couple of the users on the athletics world championship thread have been very toxic and has probably turn down more than a few people. On a side note, and generally speaking, I feel people should be encouraged to post their own thread about side subjects (for instance, the new women 50KM walking event could/should have had its own thread).. At the end of the day, the general - insert sport - discussion thread might be conter productive.
  15. Doping Cases and Bans Thread

    Because there are more incentives to dope, the higher level you go (money, fame...). Match fixing is a different beast entirrely, the reward is the same regardless of the level of the match, but the risk to be caught is lower, the lower you go through the ranks. @Agger I won't disagree that the peloton is a lot cleaner that 10 or 15 years ago, but I'd argue it has more to do with the introduction of the blood passport and the various cases brought by the justice, that the anti doping system per se.
