    I have written a book on the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, which will come out in July, 2019. I have interviewed over 70 Olympians from those Games, and researched the topic for the past 5 years. I have come to the conclusion that the 1964 Tokyo Olympics had arguably one of the greatest impacts on a nation any Olympics have ever had, and may ever have again. The 2-weeks of the Games occurred during some incredible geo-political events. And of course the sports stories were incredible and memorable. Walk down this memory lane with me. Here is a link to a recent blog post I wrote on the day it was 500 Days to Go to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, looking back to when it was 500 Days to Go to the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. https://theolympians.co/2019/03/12/tokyo-2020-500-days-to-go-what-was-happening-when-it-was-500-days-to-go-to-the-1964-tokyo-olympics-2/

    And we name you: Axoloco!!! April 6, 2019.- 2019 Annual TISC mascot finally has a name: Axoloco. The process to find a name for the Axolotl of the contest finished Thursday night, with 34 members of Totallympics casting a total of 62 votes from among 7 possible names for the likeable mascot. Axoloco, named proposed by user @vinipereira came as the winner option with 18 votes, followed by "Sr. Gran Corazón" with 12 and "Axel" with 8. Full results are shared below Results From now on, Axoloco will fulfill his role of 2019 TAISC ambassador to its full capacity; he is heading the Welcoming committee for the participants thay will start arriving in Mexico City on Tuesday April 9th, and will serve as their primary tour guide, which among other places, will include the Pre Hispanic ceremonial site of Teotihuacán and the channels of Xochimilco, both places closely associated to our animal friend legend.

    I am okay. Oof. It's almost scary, but as screwed up as I was, I woke up this morning as if nothing had happened. I think it'll all be fine, so please don't worry I am going home soon too. Thanks for being concerned. My family sends their best.

    Hello everyone. Sorry for the delay... my Internet company is running some tests as connection all over the country has been faulty in the past two weeks, even at work. The ceremony will be held tonight, since my priority is to send the voting templates and save the scoreboards, so as to avoid major catastrophe. So expect to receive a private messages in the next few hours. My most sincere apologies to all.

    Alright, just wanted to update y’all on the scary situation we had earlier. The user sought help and according to his words, is in good hands. I want to thank @vinipereira for his help tracking down the user, so I could check in on him. I wish him a happy life and a good recovery back to excellent health. If you, another user, or anyone else you know needs help, don’t hesitate to look for it. I unfortunately have multiple memorial benches at my high school and I don’t want to see any of you in that situation. If you have further questions feel free to ask. If you need someone to talk to, feel free to DM anytime. See y’all around.

    I made my own Thai-style green curry soup today, based on green curry paste. I added lots of things I like, like onions, garlic, spinach, coconut milk, cashew nuts, coriander and ... English sausages. I love experimenting with different cuisines and ingredients. Served in a bowl with vermicelli (glass noodles).

    TISC Team Challenge Guidelines The TISC Team Challenge consists of 10 teams: 9 teams of 4 members each and 1 team of 2 members which includes the host. Each team is based in a different region of the host country and named after an native ethnic group that inhabits said region. The competition will be held in a relay format of 4 legs, that mirrors each of the voting sessions of the Grand Final, e.g. Leg 1 will involve the votes of the juries positioned 1-10 in the voting order; leg 2 will include those juries positioned 11-19; leg 3 spans the votes of juries located 20-29 in the time shedule; and finally, leg 4 will comprise the votes of the juries situated 30-38 in the order. There will be one scoring member for each team in each leg. Only the score of the team member taking part in that specific leg will count towards the team competition. In the case of the the 2 member team, each nation will score in two succesive legs. To determine the order in which team members will race each leg, participating countries were distributed in two halves, onceagain respecting the voting order. Then for each team, the nation in the first half will exchange its position with the nation in the second half that "mirrors" its position, like the table below shows. Team 1st Leg 2nd Leg 3rd Leg 4th Leg Huichol Croatia New Zealand Slovenia Romania Tarahumara Bulgaria Portugal Tunisia Russia Tapatio Mexico Indonesia Huastec Finland Venezuela Chile Slovakia Otomi Great Britain Brazil Spain Netherlands Purepecha Lithuania Denmark Norway France Totonac Italy Colombia Serbia Germany Maya United States Egypt P.R. of China Argentina Mixtec Algeria Ireland Poland Greece Yaqui Turkey Australia India Malta At the end of each leg, the scoring team members will be ranked in descending order based on the number of points they received during that specific leg. Thus, the team that has accumulated the most points in that leg will be ranked first and receive a score of 1 point for that leg, with the 10th team in the rank receiving a score of 10 points. In the case where two or more teams members are tied after the leg is complete, the same tie-break rules that apply to the main contest will be carried out}; e.g. the team member that received points from the greatest number of different juries in that leg; then, the team member that received the highest score (12 points) from most juries, followed by the second highest score (11 points) from most juries and so on. If the tie remains after all the previous criteria have been used, the teams will be deemed to have tied for the same position and received the same points that leg. After all relay legs are completed, the team with the lowest team score will be deemed the winner, the format is similar to that used in Olympic-class sailing competitions. In the event that 2 or more teams are tied for position at the end of the contest, the 3 highest scoring legs for each member will be considered only in order to break the tie. If there is still a tie, the 2 highest scoring legs for each member will be considered only. If after that the tie remains, then the teams will be deemed to have tied for the same position and no further tie-breaks will apply.

    I write poetry from time to time, so on a sad day like this I choose to write one for the French people. (Sorry If you hate it, but I have gained many accolades for my poetry) (I apologize if I misused any French words, they’re all from google translate) (I also apologize if I offend anyone.): Brûler Our Lady, Notre Dame Stands burning. The protector becomes the afflicted. Fathers stop, Their sons are impatient. “It’s not everyday Our Lady burns.” It’s not everyday history is destroyed. Presidents, Emperors, Popes, Kings, and Queens All walked her halls. The Heart of France, Le Coeur de la France Burns, brûle A World, un monde Watches, regarde Sad, triste And devastated, et dévasté. All is lost, tout est perdu. Silence is broken, sadness is chained. Voices, voix de paris Cry out for Our Lady. Their tone is somber, their hearts heavy. But together, they cry out for Our Lady. Our Lady watched Paris for 800 years, We watched her for one evening. Beauty, sa beauté Changes to hideous horror. Hope will rise from her ashes. Les Parisiens will rebuild Our Lady. Her beauty will be restored. Her scars healed, But history’s will not. Today Our Lady burned, We sit in hushed sadness Tomorrow we rebuild, And create new history. (It takes a lot of courage on my part to post this here, so please be respectful if your critique it.)

    Welcome to Mexico: All countries and juries aboard April 6, 2019.- 2019 Annual TISC organizers have confirmed that each and every one of the National juries and their respective members, have confirmed their participation in this year's edition, dismissing fears that some of them could be left behind. After a slow start in the voting process, most juries send their votes with time to spare before Thursday's deadline, leaving the organizers the task to count and validate the votes until the Big Final two weeks from now. But before, organizers have announced the celebration of the traditional draw that will determine the order each country will have for the aforementioned event. The drawing is taking place today at 11:30 local time, and as per usual, will involve a game show hosted by @OlympicIRL. As part of the celebration, organizing committee revealed it has already booked the flights for the participants, which will start arriving in Mexico City next Tuesday. They will rest there until Thursday, where they will be transported to one of 37 locations across Mexico's other 31 federative entities, where they will enjoy a 4 day stay and discover some of the beautiful places, cuisine, people and traditions the country has to offer, before arriving to Guadalajara the night of April 15th.

    well, I must admit that I've never been perfectly fit, but at least I've always tried to keep in decent shape until the end of my studying years and Military service... I used to play handball (at competitive level, my team won the regional championship once and was 3rd twice during the boys class years...then when I switched to the cadet class, the new team wasn't that good and moreover in the second year I ijured my right knee, so, well conscious that I'd have never had a pro career, I decided to give up playing), swimming (I was good in the short distances of freestyle and backstroke, but I never tried to compete seriously) and occasionally having some fun with my friends at the playground (playing some futsal and some basketball, but, as I wrote, just for fun and nothing more)... then, once my studies and my Military service were over, a new life started... and nowadays my daily excercise is something like this: morning session: or mid-day session: or evening session: or + or and in between those epic efforts...

    I decided to do a playlist of all my TISC 12-point picks to date. It's a varied bunch in terms of musical genres but each had that something special. As of yet, the choice of the Irish jury has not gone on to win the contest. The choice of Malta (TISC Annual 2018) was largely at odds with the rest of the national juries (I still can't comprehend how such a great song didn't score much better), but Italy (TISC Open 2013) and Brazil (TISC Annual 2017) finished with silver medals and Canada (TISC Open 2016) finished with a bronze medal. Hopefully this year we can match with the eventual gold medal winner. Here are the songs that took the maximum score from the Irish national jury at each of the first 11 editions of the contest. Feel free to make your own 12-point playlists too to re-live more memories. TISC Open 2013 - Italy TISC Annual 2014 - Australia TISC Open 2014 - Canada TISC Annual 2015 - Slovakia TISC Open 2015 - United States TISC Annual 2016 - Denmark TISC Open 2016 - Canada TISC Annual 2017 - Brazil TISC Open 2017 - Chile TISC Annual 2018 - Malta TISC Open 2018 - Chile TISC Annual 2019

    If they really don't want to play, they can at the very least fake some injury or something a couple of weeks before the start. Withdrawing like this, more than a year ahead, is just disrespectful to all those athletes who sacrifice everything to get to the Olympics.

    WKF updated the Olympic ranking. we have lots of changes because of the continental championships. someone corrects me if I'm wrong but it seems right now only except Oceania we have continental Championships points included in the ranking for other continents ?! while continental champs for Africa and Asia are scheduled for July which means 2018 results are irreverent for these continents ! so why WKF are counting them ?! we didn't send most of our A team members to the Asian Champs last year (saving them for the Asian Games) so I assume they can collect more points this year. but at least having all continental champs done, the ranking is more balanced, still long way to go but not bad to have a summary of top 4 in each weight right now Men Kata: 67kg: 75kg: +75kg: Women Kata: 55kg: 75kg: +75kg: only Italy and Turkey have more than 2. they both have 4 which is great. Spain, Azerbaijan and Iran, also have 2.
