    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.

    I'm sure they know that. there are 1 or 2 Iranians working for UWW. I understand athletes with long surnames, that's their own fault not adding a space between parts of their names but the funny thing is they are making it even worst by adding father's name. no other sport federation does that . which is not part of the name in Iran. (the Iranian naming system is like yours, but some names are consisted of 2 or 3 parts) let me make it easier for you. this is how we know them in Iran. Freestyle: 57: Reza Ahmadali ATRINAGHARCHI ==> Reza Atri 61: Behnam Eshagh EHSANPOOR ==> Behnam Ehsanpour 65: Amirmohammad Babak YAZDANICHERATI ==> Amir Mohammad Yazdani 70: Yones Aliakbar EMAMICHOGHAEI ==> Younes Emami 74: Reza Alireza AFZALIPAEMAMI ==> Reza Afzali 79: Bahman Mohammad TEYMOURI ==> Bahman Teymouri 86: Hassan Aliazam YAZDANICHARATI ==> Hassan Yazdani 92: Alireza Mohammad KARIMIMACHIANI ==> Alireza Karimi 97: Ali Khalil SHABANIBENGAR ==> Ali Shaabani 125: Yadollah Mohammadkazem MOHEBI ==> Yadollah Mohebbi Greco-Roman 55: Pouya Mohammad NASERPOUR ==> Pouya Nasserpour 60: Ali Reza Ayat Ollah NEJATI ==> Alireza Nejati 63: Meysam Karamali DALKHANI ==> Meysam Delkhani 67: Hamed Mousa TAB ==> Hamed Tab 72: Amin Yavar KAVIYANINEJAD ==> Amin Kavianinejad 77: Mohammadali Abdolhamid GERAEI ==> Mohammad Ali Geraei 82: Saeid Morad ABDVALI ==> Saeid Abdevali 87: Ramin Soltanmorad TAHERISARTANG ==> Ramin Taheri 97: Mohammadhadi Abdollah SARAVI ==> Mohammad Hadi Saravi 130: Amir Mohammadali GHASEMIMONJEZI ==> Amir Ghasemi-Monjazi there are only 4 former world medalists in this team. we had some surprising decisions by our coach, leaving Hossein Nouri and Mehdi Aliyari ( world bronze medalists in 2017 and 2018) at home. this is a very young team, 8 of them will have their first ever World Senior Champs and 4 of them were in our junior team last year !!! in freestyle we had some disappointing news in past couple of weeks, Reza Yazdani and Parviz Hadi (at least Hadi was a sure medal) had to withdraw because of injuries. we have some very good medal chances for non-Olympic weights but I think the only guaranteed Olympic quota is 86kg Hassan Yazdani who will win the gold most probably. for the rest we have to wait and see. most of them are very young and they can surprise everybody. and speaking about medals. I'm sure about two medals in freestyle, anything else will depend on the draw. our 97kg guy is also promising he might do some damages. in Greco I have absolutely no idea what to expect. Iran got some great results in World Juniors in past couple of years. this team is mostly based on those Junior teams. I think 72 and 82 are our best chances for the gold (both of them non-Olympic weights unfortunately) I think the only weight with absolutely no chance for Iran is 74kg. Afzali is probably the worst wrestler Iran sent to the World Championship in past 20 years.

    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)

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

    This event is nonsense. There is just no through-line in the events selected, and there are some glaring omissions. On a personal level the only events included that I enjoy are BMX freestyle and Roller Freestyle. I guess Parkour, Breakdancing and 3x3 are “urban”, but what the heck is frisbee, watered down summer biathlon and *indoor rowing* doing here? How are those urban sports? Where is skateboarding or climbing? I’m just really skeptical of the concept. The X Games work because there is a clear throughline in the events that are selected. Nobody in the world is a fan of “urban” sports. It’s not that I dislike any of the events, I just don’t understand what they have in common. Edit: oh, and ya, the X Games are great and I think stealing a bunch of their events is the only good “fellow kids” thing the IOC has ever done.

    Poland with another 0-0 snoozer vs Austria. We're so useless lately but the group is so weak it's impossible not to qualify from it

    well this is not an insurance for anything... "our" guys named before already competed last year at the European (Kudiiiamagomedov) and/or World Championships (Conyedo even won the bronze medal) among the seniors, but because the UWW and the IOC rules in terms of elegibility are completely different, this year they can't be on the mat... I know, it looks crazy, but this is how it works with UWW...

    This is sad... My friend is probably shaking her head at the moment. She is Slovakian-Hungarian and she often tells me how annoyed and frustrated she is about situations like these. She wishes people like those tonight at the stadium would at least act like decent people and show some respect to each other no matter what ethnicity they are.

    Hockenson can really make Stafford look good again even though some 'experts' hated you taking a TE in the first round. But you have to finish the deal off. Lions let Cardinals off the hook big time.

    China got two wins at the World Cup. I think China will keep its place as the best Asian team in the world ranking (didn't count AUS/IRN/NZL) I highly doubt China doesn't make it but if they don't want to participate that's another story.

    Argentina has played against weak teams till now. Even Russia played without their best 2017 players (khostov, shved, Mozgov). I think Serbia has a small edge but Argentinians are fighters to the end. It would be an interesting couple

    I think Philippines will lose few places in FIBA world ranking after the world cup. they are only 17pts ahead of South Korea right now. I assume South Korea will be the 2nd Asian team the other 7 teams will be most probably the same as you said.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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)...

    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.

    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.

    Yesterday in Andujar, Spain, Yulimar Rojas produced the second farthest triple jump of all-time with a jump of 15.41m. It is only 9cm shy of Kravets WR.
