  1. Three months to go.
  2. Fencing: http://www.pzszerm.pl/static/domain/files/others/136/136/13693_10._tokyo_2020_-_qualification_system_-_fencing_-_ang.pdf
  3. IAAF seems to completely change their qualification system. They will introduce a new World Ranking List which will be important for qualifying: https://www.iaaf.org/news/press-release/iaaf-official-world-rankings
  4. And the Olympic flame has also arrived in Incheon. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-olympics-2018-flame/south-korea-welcomes-olympic-flame-ahead-of-2018-games-idUSKBN1D13CC
  5. Winter Olympic Games 2018 News

    I would take these 35 medals at once, thank you very much! I looked at them. I guess none of them are completely unrealistic. But it's highly unlikely that we'll win all of them. Everything between 25 and 30 medals results would be a good result.
  6. Winter Olympic Games 2018 Torch Relay

    The torch has landed in South korea.
  7. Artistic Gymnastics FIG World Championships 2017

    Gold on Balance Beam! I can't believe it.
  8. Germany's Bianca Walter has fulfilled the national qualification standards for Pyeongchang.
  9. Beijing 2022 Olympic Sports Programme

    Not that I want it, but what about Alpine Skiing Parallel Slalom or Parallel Giant Slalom like at the City Events? They seem to love this.
  10. 2026 Winter Olympic Games

    Also, if they have the chance, IOC will probably give the Games to central Europe for the first time since 2006.
  11. World Rowing Federation has published their most recent draft: http://www.worldrowing.com/mm//Document/General/General/12/92/14/2020OQSCouncilLatestDraft020917F_Neutral.pdf It isn't finalized yet, but they explained their decisions step by step. And they have included a chart how many boats will qualify at which competition, should the draft be used.
  12. Summer Olympic Games 2020 News

    It is mentioned in the qualification systems. It's mentioned underReallocation of Team Quote Places: http://inside.fei.org/system/files/JUMPING Tokyo 2020 - Qualification System_7 August 2017.pdf
  13. The speicific details for the Volleyball qualification seem to be known as well. According to Worldofvolley, all qualifications tournaments are already in 2019 and the order has changed: http://www.worldofvolley.com/News/Latest_news/FIVB/89336/fivb-changes-qualification-system-for-the-olympic-games-continental-championships-gain-importance-.html - First tournament is the World Qualification tournament, which is similar to the World Cup. It takes place in early 2019. - Second tournament is the International Qualification tournament, with the twelve best teams in the World Ranking not yet qualified. It's in summer 2019. - The third tournament are the Continental Championships in 2019. So there seems to be no longer an additional continental tournament in the beginning of the Olympic year.
  14. 2024 and 2028 Olympic Games Host Cities Election

    I honestly think the time will come very soon, when the Olympic Games will be awarded to whole countries (or very big regions) instead of citys and smaller regions (like the Rhein-Ruhr area). It would be a pity, that all those different athletes wouldn't be able to live in the same Olympic village anymore, but I don't see many other possibilities. Only speaking about Germany, because I don't know the situation in other countries, but theoretically, we have almost every sporting venue here, just in very different places. Transportation costs wouldn't be too expensive either, if it is spreat over the whole country. And I don't think the costs for security measures will be much higher than for example during a Football Worldcup, which takes place in a whole country as well.
  15. Today it's 150 days until Pyeongchang 2018.
