It's insane to see Great Britain on the list of qualifiers. Portugal is also kind of a surprise (even though they won a bronze medal at the European Championships a long time ago) but Great Britain is just insaaaane. How much improvement in a short time! I'm amazed!

Well, European Games will never be a serious affair if it does not closely correlate with the qualification to Olympics. With swimming and rowing out, athletics with a clown fiesta format, 3x3 basketball and beach football as the team events, it is highly ridiculous and no athlete would intervene with their preparation for real events that matter.

 

In all honesty, if we're making a mockery out of formats of Olympic sports, I'd just say scratch the entire idea (that's awful) and just make European Games an event entirely based on non-Olympic sports. Invite dancers, air sports, climbing, fighting sports that are non-Olympic, you can have your lovely beach football on the side as well, but at the moment I see this as a waste of money, where B and C tier athletes compete for the chance of getting their name on the first page of the newspapers in their country and of course that gives us something to write about as well.

There are countries where the European Games are expected to be on the first page of any newspaper?

Well, Henrikas Žustauskas that won the gold in canoe 200m. sprint is still getting credited as the European Games champion in every article even when he's being beaten by a two years younger athlete and not qualifying to the European/World championships anymore.

 

Of course, some may argue that Olympic changes and the removal of the 200m. may have impacted his results as he now had to make the switch to 1000m.

Definitely not here. Sport isn't the 1st page material here for obvious reasons ... unless it's football, boxing, tennis or fencing.

Well, here could be one of the few places, where these Games are considered a big thing. :d 2015 was treated like an important event by the media, you know the European Olympics, many sports, many nations, in one place, events after events, with medals, that we can and had won (unlike the actual Olympics :d). Even today i saw somewhere a somewhat countdown article "One year till the second European Games" :p
