    All team sports should follow the FIH model of Olympic qualifiers. Its simple, makes sure the best teams compete and is cost effective. No need to get fancy.

    Who has qualified for the OQT. None of this is official, I am just basing it off current rankings, and so things could change. OQT: 3 of Serbia/Spain/France/Poland/Czech Republic Lithuania Italy Greece Russia Brazil Venezuela Puerto Rico Dominican Republic Germany New Zealand Tunisia Canada Turkey Wild Cards: Slovenia (Europe) Croatia (Europe) China (Asia) Philippines (Asia) Senegal (Africa) Angola (Africa) Mexico (Americas) Uruguay (Americas)

    I'd find it incredibly funny if Poland and Czech Republic end up taking those

    The refs basically decided that game when they called that more than questionable offensive foul on Giannis. Not a good look for FIBA.

    Predicting 1/4 finals isnt easy but i will try. 1. Serbia has all in their hands,but now this could be even distaster. Before yesterday i would say that Argentina is clear outsider but now... things has changed. Serbia is in bad mood, Spain showed their weakness, there was tragic event in Micic familly,Serbia wont have any training session before the game. Considering all that, there is 50-50% chance. I wouldnt be surprised to see Serbia lose. 2. USA - France. USA improves match by match. Their level is ascending. France is also good but i am not so sure that they can beat USA, not in this round. I thought that USA has weakest team in years but even with this team they can win a gold. Conclusion is that no matter what names are in USA team,as long as they play in NBA and have good coach,they are still better than rest of the world. 3. Spain - Poland. Even though Poland is great, their road should end here. Spain will rise after great victory over Serbia. 4. Australia - Czech Republic. Australia is clear favorite but they shouldnt underestimate Czech team. So, my picks for 1/2 final are Argentina - USA, Spain - Australia.

    Latvia also would deserve a wildcard. Remember their starting-5 in eurobasket 2017. Very good team

    Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. They own the Toronto Raptors and have done lots of work with Canada Basketball. They're a bunch of cheap fuckheads though, so I doubt they do anything.

    Yes, 5-8th semis. And they would be playing each other in that case. On the other side it will likely be Poland-Czech R.

    During the Brazil's game, a journalist said that the Brazilian federation has already consulted Fiba to host one of these OQT

    Nothing questionable about that foul. It was clear defensive foul, guy moved all the way, never stopped. To make that call against player like Giannins and to make him that his 5th foul is a joke. Refereeing is terrible, nothing better is expected because 3rd tier refs are there, but FIBA should be abolished, burned to the ground, then risen again just to be burned again, it's such travesty of an organization, complete morons.

    Because our team like to play against France. Of course France is strong, but somwhow we are always good against them.

    But Rabobank never introduced itself as 'the banking team' or something, or BORA as 'the cooking team' (sure, there's Sagan's commercials), or Sunweb as 'the travelling team' or INEOS as 'the chemical team'. Dimension Data/MTN Qhubeka branded itself as Africa's Team since it started and always, always was talking about giving all those young talented Africans chances at the highest levels. Now all they do in that regard is give an accidental African here or there a small chance, but mostly rely on either old Europeans that used to be good or middle-aged (from a sports perspective) Europeans who never really have been very good at all, and present them like the next awesome big thing. It's not about 'Team from X doesn't have a lot of riders from X', it's about how it's sad to see a promising philosophy going down the drain into obscurity. Especially in a time when one could have quite a decent team with Africans only...at least Amanuel is still doing something good for Dimension Data, pretty much their only bright spot at the moment. Also, apart from the whole Africa thing, it's kinda laughable how time and time again they manage to make their team even less impressive with their new signings. I really don't know any other team that manages to go downhill so fast, year after year, in terms of who they sign.

    The square union in principle is for Israel but my question is who would be the 1st book union, because the following are the Dutch and Spanish 2 and have fallen into the same round of repescas. If the Israelite classified in the 2020 world or would have a vacancy for who would be the square of the 1st reservation?

    So Greece has to win with at least 12 points against Czech Republic to advance, right? (assuming that the US beats Brazil, ofc)

    by the way, this is a quick recap of the women's tournament so far... the 12 girls still in contention are: round 6 Silvana Lima Tatiana Weston-Webb Bianca Buitendag Sofia Mulanovich repechage 8A Anat Lelior Stephanie Gilmore Sally Fitzgibbons Courtney Conlogue repechage 8B Caroline Marks Brisa Hennessy Carissa Moore Nikki Van Dijk as explained in the posts above, the competition format is quite complicated... - the top 2 of the round #6 heat will advance directly to the Final - the 3rd and 4th ranked of the round #6 heat will be relegated to the repechage heat #10 - the top 2 of the repechage heats #8A and 8B will advance to the repechage heat #9 - the 3rd and 4th ranked of the repechage heats #8A and #8B are eliminated and ranked from 9th to 12th place in the overall standings - the top 2 of the repechage heat #9 will advance to the repechage heat #10 - the 3rd and 4th ranked in the repechage heat #9 are eliminated and ranked 7th and 8th respectively in the overall standings - the top 2 of the repechage heat #10 will advance to the Final - the 3rd and 4th ranked in the repechage heat #10 are eliminated and ranked 5th and 6th respectively in the overall standings - the 4 girls contesting the Final are ranked accordingly to the results of that heat...the top 3 will get Gold, Silver and Bronze medal respectively... I hope you didn't get too much of a headache, now...

    sure? those in round #6 should be 6th at worst... correct me, if I'm wrong... the top 2 in round 6 will advance to the final,meanwhile the 3rd and 4th ranked should go to the repechage #10 with only 1 heat of 4 surfers (and the top 2 advancing to the final, meanwhile the 3rd and 4th ranked should end the competition as 5th and 6th)... because repechage 9 should feature only 1 heat of 4 surfers, the top 2 of the 2 rep. 8 heats (with 2 advancing from rep. 9 to rep. 10)... 7th and 8th overall should be the 2 rep. 9 losers...

    yes, she's guaranteed a top 6 finish, if I'm not wrong about the competition format (in any case, there are only 12 girls left, so she can't be worse than 12th)...
  29. 1 point
    Nice to know, I did not know that. But, yes. If she gets the worst position, she'll be in the 8th place

    it's because those 2 weights have been created by merging the old bantam+feather (it was 54 and 57) and the old Lightweights+light welterweights (it was 60 and 64) to cut from 10 to 8 the total number of weight classes... therefore, as they don't have an official name for the new classes, there's some confusion within the media, calling the new weights with one or the other old name indifferently... that's why I agree at 100% with @heywoodu...they should just name them by their actual weight limit and stop... I mean, the names are absolutely relative...for instance, to me 91kg are small men, just like flyweights

    Abrines left NBA in January due to a a depression and he decided to stop playing basketball this year until July, when he signed with FC Barcelona, so he was not available. Mirotic was called but he refused to come because he wanted a break after a long NBA season. Serge Ibaka (Raptors) and Chacho Rodríguez (Olimpia Milano) also declined being part of the team this year.

    This is why every division in every sport with weight classes should just be called by it's weight rather than some sort of confusing name like bantam, feather or welter.

    Raduljica is not playing serious basketball for like 4 years now at least. Coach loves him because he's good for the team, but I love the team too and still I don't play in China now.

    Je to v oficiálnom dokumente. Môže sa v prípade potreby vymeniť jedná miestenka za inú, ale každá krajina môže len raz a ak sa nemýlim v akejkoľvek inej disciplíne ale musí byť v rovnakom pohlaví. (aj ked my sme v Riu taktoo vymenili Zuzaninu miestenku z ženského trapu kedže bola vtedy tehotná za miestenku pre Kováčocyho v M Trape, takže neviem, možno existujú isté výnimky) oficiálny dokument.

    That is correct. Ernest John Obiena achieved the Olympic Standard in men's pole vault in Chieti, Italy, with 5.81m. https://www.iaaf.org/athletes/philippines/ernest-john-obiena-290722

    Incidentally, last time Italy had nobody in men's trap was Antwerp 1920. It could be a very fitting centennial celebration next year.

    Predictions... Germany and India are qualified already. Ned 95% - 5% Pak Can 51% - 49% Irl Esp 60% - 40% Fra GB 75% - 25% Mas NZ 60% - 40% Kor Too bad for France, they got the worst opponent while being the best team from pot 3. Probably their olympic return will have to wait 4 years.
