Week in Summer #7 - United States April 29th - May 28th Archery 2018 Archery World Cup - Stage 2 (Antalya) Men's Recurve Qualification Round Brady, Jack, and Matthew Requa all improved their qualification scores from Shanghai! This was 19 year old Matthew Nofel first ever Archery World Cup and placing 79th in qualification is great! Bracket Round - Brady Ellison Brady Ellison was able to get a first round & second round bye as he ranked 4th after the qualification round.

Next Jack played against Xu Tianyu (27) and won the second round match up aswell! In the third round Crispin Duenas (6) was up against Jack and ended up beating Jack 7-3.

In the 2nd round Mackenzie got beat by Kawanaka Kaori 0-6. This was not the best of Mackenzie's performances so hopefully the stage of World Cup she can improve! Bracket Round - Khatuna Lorig Khatuna Lorig also had an underwhelming performance as she got knocked out 1st round by Luiza Saidiyeva (70) 3-7.

  7. Formula 1 FIA World Championship 2018

    Great race the start was very intense!
  8. Commonwealth Games 2018

    Looks like I'm gonna have to use VPN to watch oh well!
  9. Week in Summer #3 - United States March 25th - April 1st Archery No competitions took place this week so I'll give a rundown of World Rankings Brady Ellison - 5th Zach Garret - 17th Jake Kaminski 29th ------------------------------ Mackenzie Brown - 9th Khatuna Lorig - 43rd La Nola Shepherd - 116th Badminton 2018 New Orleans Masters took place this weekend and we had our best ranked Mixed Doubles team compete in the event. Sadly we lost first round to a 351st ranked team and we are 120th! Basketball No news on Basketball this week Cycling Road - UCI World Tour Women's Tour of Flanders Meghan Guarnier: Meghan was able to place in 10th in this race which gave her some great points to put her into 31st ranked in the Women's World Tour Coryn Rivera: Coryn placed 34th in the race gaining 3 points putting her in 23rd rank 2018 Women's World Tour Rankings Canoe No news on Canoe this week Note: More and More qualification systems are being released everyday so I've been organizing my spreadsheet for that. I have a bunch of sports on my spreadsheet just their world cups and sutff haven't been started yet
  10. Hey, I'm hoping someone can explain the qualification to me. If a country qualifies a team does that mean they also qualify three individual athletes aswell?
  11. Week in Summer #2 - United States March 18th - March 25th Archery Versus MX 2018 (Brady Ellison) On March 22nd through March 25th Brady Ellison (Three-time Olympic Medalist) competed at Versus MX Shoot in Guadalajara, Mexico. He shot both Compound and Recurve (but for the sake of Olympics being Recurve we will only talk about that). Brady shot 686 out of 720 points to seed first in the overall men's recurve ranking round. Brady ended up placing 1st in the Recurve event! Badminton This week there was no competition this week with high ranking USA athletes as Orleans Masters 2018 is next week so I bet many USA athletes will be attending that event. Basketball There is not much news on Basketball as most of their games they play have some sort of direct correlation to the Tokyo Olympics. Here is the information for the Pan American games which I don't think are connected to the Olympic Qualifying in anyway. Men's Women's Cycling Road - UCI World Tour Volta a Catalunya Our current best Road Cycler Tejay Van Garderen competed at this event and placed 17th placing him at 162nd place in the World Tour Ranking. Tejay currently is in 78th place in the World Ranking. We had our second best Cycler competeing at this event aswell, Brent Bookwalter came in 37th place and now is ranked 177th in the UCI World Tour. Brent is currently 120th in the World Ranking. Canoe Not much information has come out recently about USA Canoe as we get closer to the 2018 Canoe Slalom World Cup I should have more information. As more and more Qualification's for the Olympics start coming out it will be easier for me to know what to put on these posts. I've been working hard on getting more and more information on everything but it takes time. I think this format is pretty good the yellow stands out well for each sport so it's easy to differentiate the sports. For the events which have a bunch of competitors (cycling, boxing, etc) I'm just gonna focus on the best ranked atheltes or else it would take me forever.
  12. Week in Summer #1 - United States March 11th - March 18th Archery The Archery season just ended last week so not much has been going on. The 2018 Archery World Cup starts back up on April 23rd in Shanghai, China. Badminton Yonex All England Open Women's Singles Beiwen Zhang got a eliminated 1st round in the tournament which is not terrible as she went against the #2 ranked player in the World Tour while Beiwen is only ranked #5 XIX Giraldilla Tournament Women's Singles With this tournament win Crystal jumped up 15 places in the World Ranking now being rank 187 in the world for Women's Singles. Basketball Men's We got news this week that our National Team will be playing Australia in a Melbourne Exhibition Game on Aug 22nd and 24th. This will be a practice as Australia is currently ranked 10th in the world (USA 1st) Women's We have got the information on the FIBA Women's Basketball World Cup Group D dates. Diving Women's 2018 Diving World Series #2 Fugi Synchronized 10m Platform Can't tell if this is a bad result or best we can do result as this is Katrina and Tarrin first Syncro 10m at the 2018 Diving World Series. NOTES: Finding/Keeping up with information for Cycling and Boxing is tough and I'm still trying to find a good way to display it and such. I'm also still working on the spreadsheet with all the summer sports on them I still have a few left (school work was extreme past week) but That's why there was only a select number of sports posted nonetheless I wanted to get this post out. As weeks progress more and more detailed information I will be able to put down for the events/athletes.
  13. Trek to Tokyo 2020 United States February 26th Basketball (Men) USA 83 - 75 Puerto Rico For more information on this game and how it ties to qualification visit the "Basketball" section in this post below. Basketball (Men) Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics In order to qualify must be one of the top 2 Americas teams at 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 FIBA World Cup In order to qualify must be one of top 7 teams at 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup Qualification (Americas) 2019 FIBA World Cup Qualification (Americas) USA 83 - 75 Puerto Rico This win gives us enough points to be in a very good spot to qualify for the second round of the World Cup Qualification. Puerto Rico is the next best ranked team in our group currently ranked 4th in the Americas Region (USA ranked 1st). A bigger point difference would have been preferred but nonetheless a win is a win! Group Results: EDIT: We have qualified to the second round of the 2019 FIBA World Cup Qualification (Americas)
  14. Yeah, I've met them a couple of time and sometimes talk to them on Twitter (they follow me ). Fallen is really one of the nicest people I've ever met. I'm not sure if you know who Steel is (currently plays for Liquid, the Brazilian Steel) but he is really nice aswell.
