    Yeah, that too
  2. Tour de France 2018

    If i was to put the blame to someone, that would be the guys who light up the flares . Riders really need all the visibility they can get.
  3. Tour de France 2018

    Nibali's fall (not due to motorbikes as it was reported earlier) That's right before the first bareer...
  4. Paris 2024 Olympic Sports Programme

    During today's press conference it has been said that the number of quotas needed for the additional sports will be counted towards the overal 10,500 athletes set by IOC Charter (contrary to what happen for Tokyo) Il means that the number of additional sports will be low (very likely lower than five) and that they won't request a large number of quotas (any team sport is basically screwed at that point) Edit: Paris will make its proposals by the first semester of 2019.
  5. Soooo, for real ?, all right, let's start this thread. . Additional sports: As we all know, hosting cities are now free to add a certain number of extra sports and events to the olympic program. Only the 37 IOC recognised federations can apply for inclusion. For Tokyo, 26 of them applied, 7 were then short-listed, and finally, 5 were chosen (skateboarding, surfing, sport climbing, baseball/softball & karaté). As of today, the parisian commite has tried its best not to close the door to anyone (from E-sport to Pétanque). We are yet to know what will be the exact schedule of the bidding process, but apparently, the additional sports will be known by 2019. . New events: Not directly linked to the host, we can also expect the olympic program to move further into a more "youth and urban" direction. Gender equality is also likely to be pushed even futher.
  6. Beijing 2022 Olympic Sports Programme

    Besides, how many opportunities the same set of people should have to rack up medals doing basically the exact same thing. ?
  7. Beijing 2022 Olympic Sports Programme

    Any event will see participation grow if they were included in the olympics. Doesn't make it right
  8. Beijing 2022 Olympic Sports Programme

  12. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    All right, I didn't post it earlier but that front page from l'Equipe was brillant (that was before the semi final, thus th Tintin theme) The gremin on the left being The french FA boss (again) with Giroud and Deschamps (and his pet, don't ask)
  13. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    I thought so too. I feel very depressed to have made less of an impact on heywoodu that benetolympique did. Edit; I guess to tell people to fuck off is not enough, i need to get also full retard also.
  14. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    I'm the french user who tell people to fuck off, that should be easy enough to rember.
  15. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    People in french guyana are moaning, defintly.
  16. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    From the same guy who feel obliged to correct someone when he mentions something to be "from Québec", and to claims it for glorious Canada.
  17. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    Fuck off with that tedious shit. We allready have the most pathetic idiotic troll on the internetz claiming a world cup for Algeria each time Mbappé enter the stadium. I'm sure that as an Argentinean, you'll find it very funny if each time Argentina was achieving anything, you'll be told that there is no such thing as argentineans but Italians, spanish and whatnots. Very funny indeed. Very original also.
  18. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    Fuck off

  24. 2026 Winter Olympic Games

    By July 2019 and the 134th IOC session (Milano), we will know where the 2026 Winter Olympic Games will be hold. The bidding process is yet to be officially started, but two cities are for now considered as the front runners. Two cities with a very Agenda 2020 feeling (even more so Sion who proposes venues from Lausanne to St Moritz). . Sion (SUI) http://sion2026.ch/ (fr/de) .Innsbruck (AUT) http://www.olympia2026.at/ (de) .Other Potential bidding cities : Lillehammer, Calgary, Salt Lake, Almaty, Gratz, etc. What are your thoughts ? Is agenda going to save the Winter OG ? EDIT: Innsbruck is dead after public vote
