  1. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Clearly, we need more facts about football based on internet memes on a athletics thread.
  2. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Good, then you'd had decent pétanque players by now. How these pétanque players would have helped you in european athletics is still unknow though.
  3. Stars of the Future

    Just to give a point of reference, not everyone would know what 6.57m out of vacum means. She was injured most of the season.
  4. Stars of the Future

    Heather Arneton (27/07/02) - Athletics Among other things, last year, aged 14, she jumped 6.57m (that would have been a top 8 finish in Berlin for exemple). She is kinda allready famous among french sport fans, might be a challange to deal with the allready growing expectation.

    Also a PB for Calvin. Well, it was her first Marathon after all
  6. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

  9. Sailing ISAF World Championships 2018

    The top 8 in men's kiteboarding is made up only of french or bittish ... And it going to be an olympic event in 2024 ...
  10. Sailing ISAF World Championships 2018

    Seven for France (we made 10 on 10 in 2014)
  11. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Thread closed before even being opened.
  12. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Probably, not more than 12-15 here, including 4 tennis players and only 3 or 4 T&fT athletes. Could be an interesting thread to try to find out the 'oldest' olympian to make it in Tokyo
  13. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Nevermind.
  14. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Having better throwers than Poland ?
  15. European Championships 2018

    So these European Championships... are they working in your countries ? (from a media point of view I mean) In France, at least, it's a strong yes. Some sports that never get broadcasted on public channels get some well derserved air time. The championships are on TV 10 hours a day, including a good amount of time on one of the main channels. I gives us a slight olympic vibe (and not a fake copy one like the European Games). They are commonly covered by the radio, or the press. For sports like gymnastics or rowing it's day and night whth what they're used to. And i'd say it even works in favor of swimming and athletics.I mean an euro title in these sports are usually small business and not frontpage worthy, and yet... I even wonder if gymnastics or rowing ever made the front page outside of the olympics. Definitly, a media succes.
  16. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Well, there are overseas territories mainly populated by non ethnic european people situated in the Caraibiean. That's the common point. But there is nothing thecnical, nor political about that.
  17. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Not really, One overseas territory status varies a lot from one to another.
  18. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Vicaut won't start the final. Injured...
  19. So, so much better. Grazie, obrigado
  20. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Perhaps... Anyway,he had it comming anyway. Remember the pole vault last year. Better to learn now than feel sorry at the WC or the Olympics...
  21. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Three french decathletes, six jumps, six faults
  22. Swimming at the Aquatics LEN European Championships 2018

    Most of the medals too (9 vs 6), very much unusual too when usually 35-40% of our medals come from the women. Might be a new trend in french sport
  23. Orienteering IOF World Championships 2018

    It won't be. There is zero lobbying for it. Here, noboddy knows that we are good at that sport or that it even exists.
  24. Orienteering IOF World Championships 2018

    Because, it's a very minor sport ?
  25. Ice Hockey 2018 - 2019 Discussion Thread

    Such a big news, that I just learned it from you Hockey clubs have zero national profile (only soccer and rugby clubs do). A french hockey club could have a miraculous run in HCL eliminating swedish clubs that I would not be reported, so the recrutment of one player French clubs do have a regional profile though, but from local medias is doesn't look huge neither tbh (but I don't live in that aera).
