Where did i say "Obvious dopes (referring to Hungary)"?

You should try to be more careful with words. There is a difference between something not being proven to be true and something to be false. Nothing i said has been proven false, so nothing i sad was incorrect, which was my point, because the way our british friend spelled my username was incorrect (definitely false), whereas my comments might be true or false. Yes, i am 100% sure that every medal winner is doped, its impossible to prove it, even if FINA would be interested in catching all the cheaters, they couldnt do it. Where did i say that only people from poor countries win medals? You should really try to understand the full meaning of a sentence, before you reply to it. I said "People from poor countries ... have nothing to lose by doping", i said nowhere that people from richer countries dont dope.

The stadium indeed looked empty in the morning, if you dont agree, then we probably have different views on what "pretty empty" means. Its great that you were in the arena on Saturday, but how does that prove anything? Didnt the competitions only start yesterday (on Sunday)? I know that i was definitely talking about Sunday, so maybe thats why we seem to have seen different competitions ... ?

5 euros sound really expensive, especially if its for the cheapest ticket. I have never been to Hungary, but 5 euros in Hungary are probably equivalent to 100-200 euros in Germany, right? How much does an average hungarian person earn in a month? 200-300 euros?

 

I went to the arena Sunday and today (monday), evening sessions, it was quite crowded, mostly Hungarians (special for today, probably because mid Hosszu).

 

Great experience!

Well yeah, there's a limit to how much you can play with font sizes :p 

 

I wonder if their national federation really found it necessary to include each and every name and sub-name and family name and middle name on the official documents..
