Athletics is in the second half so if Canada has a good/decent first week it may relax them. The pressure will also be on Brianne to medal in heptathlon (unless we get another surprise medal in the 20km walk), which I hope will settle everyone regardless.

 

Well in the last few years our 20km walk national record has switched hands between the three of them and it seems that one is always near the top of the pile. Would be awesome to see one of our trio get an Olympic medal, they are some of the most humble and funny guys on the entirety of Team Canada

I'd gladly give up a Dutch medal to see Evan Dunfee medal in Rio :d

Well yes it's almost impossible to dislike our race walkers unless you are Russian or Alex Schwazer :d

OFF TOPIC: The medals are automatically given according to the reputation ranking, it is one of the feature of this forum's sofware, here you can see the default rankgs (I can change the number as I want, but as of today I have never changed them :d )

Because our guys (Dunfee in particular) have been investigating Russian doping in race walking for a long long time, he would even help the IAAF catch Russians who were competing during their ban. And both Dunfee and Gomez have been extremely critical of Schwazer and were very happy when he got caught again

Didn't Dunfee start the whole "Lashmanova says this photo of her competing is more than a year old, but these photos show her wearing Nike's/adidas' newest model which came out some months ago"-thing? :bowdown:

His best result in the qualifying period is 76.21m from last year, so he should be safe. Maybe they took him off the list of non-qualified athletes and just forgot to add him to the list of qualified athletes. The best athlete on the list of non-qualified athletes has a result of 75.96m and the worst athlete on the list of qualified athletes has a result of 76.18m, Melich has a better result than both and should be safe. I think they get their data from tilastopaja.org website.

yes, He is back right now in road to rio site and confirmed. :clap:

I have disabled the negative rank to avoid users getting targeted by other users who don't stand them just to see them having a bad reputation. If a post is seen as aggressive users could report it, if they just don't agree with the content I don't think is a good solution to add the negative rank.
