  1. Ice Hockey NHL 2017 - 2018

    It was much less impressive when the Blues did it because a. the league had six expansion teams that year (so half the league) and b. all six expansion teams where in the same division, which meant one was guaranteed to advance to the Stanley Cup finals.
  2. Is there really demand for that? In the US at least International baseball is an afterthought at best - I'm pretty sure the Little League World Series (which is played by literal pre-pubescent children) is a bigger deal than any International Baseball event here.
  3. Beijing 2022 Olympic Sports Programme

    ...anyone has any clue what the difference is between the Snowboard mixed team slalom and the Snowboard alpine mixed team parallel event?
  4. Nordic Combined 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    Oh, no, they are trying to get it in for the 2022 Olympics (and it isn't even the only event making it's debut at the 2021 Worlds that they are trying to get into the 2022 Olympics *cough* parallel slalom *cough*). It's just that since they are adding it to Worlds for 2021 it basically guarantees inclusion in 2026.
  5. Nordic Combined 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    The FIS announced that women's nordic combined would be part of the Nordic Skiing world championships from 2021, which essentially guarantees women's Nordic Combined will be in the Olympics by 2026.
  6. Freestyle Skiing 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    They are strictly better than not having a host. I think it’s pretty clear that combining the freestyle and snowboarding worlds wasn’t such a great idea. Other than Park City in 2019 all the hosts have been from meh to WTF.
  7. Freestyle Skiing 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    Only bidder. Just like in 2021.
  8. TBH on a personal level I fully support Kenyan and Ethiopian athletes who switch to represent Qatar, Bahrein or whatever other country. It’s just a much better option for them financially.
  9. Athletics 2018 Discussion Thread

    This is a terible, no good rule that might as well refer to Semenya by name and only apply to her. On what planet is a high testosterone level only advantageous from the 400m to the mile? Oh, ya, that’s Semenya’s known range of distances. What a joke. And I say that as someone who doesn’t think Semenya should be allowed to compete at her current level of testosterone.
  10. That article is way too light on details.
  11. Isn’t there always a bunch of confusion over how qualification actually works for Canoeing? I feel like the Wikipedia page always ends up having a couple errors.
  12. Canada National Thread | Road to Tokyo 2020

    Christine Girard is now officially the Olympic gold medalist from the London 2012 -63kg Weightlifting event.
  13. I mean, I don’t mind either (bias and all ) and it’s not like Canadian eventers or dressage riders get humiliated on the world stage. Just seems like a lot of teams which leads to a very, shall we say, kind qualification standard in the Americas. Especially if the US qualifies from WEG.
  14. I mean, there wasn’t really all that much contentious by then. Also congrats to Equestrians Canada (or whatever the EF is called) on lobbying it’s way to free a full team.
  15. Commonwealth Games 2018

    Worth remembering that Lori Fung was, and I’m being generous here, extremely lucky to win her Olympic gold medal. It isn’t indicative of Canada’s strenght (or lack therof) in rhythmic gymnastic. I agree with you though, and I think trampoline (including double mini and tumbling) should replace rhythmic on the program.
