    Road to TISC Open 2018 So as we count down the days towards the Grand Final of TISC Open 2018, as with tradition, it's time to kick-off the "Road to TISC" series. This year, the series will be take stock of the roots of the contest and explore the history of each nation in our wonderful contest. It is the intention to revamp the TISC History thread in the near future so that the history is much more accessible to anyone who wishes to go delve into the history or to spend an afternoon reminiscing. While we will continue working on that, let's take a brief look at the history of each of the 57 nations (not forgetting Antarctica of course!) who participated in our fun contests. So let's begin with looking at Bulgaria, followed later this evening by Azerbaijan and Croatia.

    A promising start: 2019 TAISC Logo Revealed January 10, 2019.- With a promising number of 18 national juries and 24 jury members already registered to rake part in the 2019 Totallympics Annual International Song Contest, this edition has reached another important date, as today marks the beginning for national selections. Yesterday organizers already sent a new call for nations and jury members to manifest their intention to compete, receiving so a positive response and great expectations to see the first song to be chosen to represent its country. This will continue until Sunday, March 3, which is the last day to complete the first phase of the competition. To celebrate this achievement, as well as to encourage further interest from potential contestants, hosts decided to reveal the logo for this year’s contest. In collaboration with prestigious “Pereira Designs Inc.”, the image in questions aims to connect Mexican identity and traditions with both, music and Olympic sports. As explained by the CEO of the organizing Committee the image represents a Mexican “sarape”, one of the countries most recognized garments due to its colorful patterns, which also serves as a music sheet shaped after the borders of the home nation. Furthermore, the colors chosen are meant to represent the Olympic movement and the typography is a homage to the biggest sports event to be host in its soil, the 1968 Summer Olympics, which set a bar in graphic identity for future hosts. *A Mexican sarape Furthermore, organizers asserted they intend to make this edition unique, revealing that they will engage participants and spectators with digital content that will showcase Mexico’s identity and culture, hoping this will provide a positive image about a culture many think they know. Further news to be revealed later today. *Special thanks to @vinipereira for making my concept for the logo a possibility

    Of all the time i could have gone to the cinema, i picked the damn worst one You should have seen my face, when i saw the results after the movie. My friends thought something really "important" had happened (not biathlon fans). This is a moment that just made all the years of suffering, not much financing, small resources, worth the damn. Not only for Vlado Iliev, but for our whole team. And it happened, when the team was having the worst season in years. I think the motivation levels just got very high.

    Host Venues (yes, you read that right) We're switching things up a bit with the venue, or shall I say 2 venues. The opening ceremony venue will be held at Walt Disney World, while the show itself will be held at Amway Center. About Disney World: In 1955, a brand new theme park was built in Anaheim, California. This park was the idea of Walt Disney and became known as Disneyland. At the time it was one of the biggest and most innovative parks in the world. The ideas behind Disneyland was that Disney could create a place where both kids and adults can go and have fun. From the time of opening, Disneyland became an immediate success. In the mid-1960's, Walt Disney wanted to build another park in Florida, based on the concept started in Disneyland. In 1971, the concept became a reality when Walt Disney World opened in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Unfortunately, Walt Disney passed away in 1966, and never had the chance to see his vision for the park come to fruition. The original idea was to create a new park similar to Disneyland, but with other aspects such as lodging areas and other novel ideas. One of the most creative and innovative ideas that Disney had was the creation of the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. This area, known as EPCOT was to be an area that served as a testing ground for ideas which could be used in cities in the future. These ideas for EPCOT sprang from concepts of the future that were seen in the World's Fair. Over the course of time, Disney World has become one of the most popular destinations for tourists in the world. In fact, the Magic Kingdom which is at the heart of Disney World is the most popular theme park in the world with nearly 17 million visitors going through the park on an annual basis. In addition, EPCOT, Animal Kingdom and the Hollywood Studios attractions are also ranked in the top ten for visitors. Through the course of time, Disney World has increased in size and attractions to become a place that has something for everyone. About Amway Center: From its signature spire and modern architecture to its public spaces and comfortable amenities, the Amway Center is an iconic destination to Central Florida and beyond. The Amway Center features a modern mix of metal and glass exterior materials and the spire serves as a beacon amid Orlando’s vibrant downtown. With an ultimate capacity of more than 20,000 seats, the arena was designed to respond to its distinct urban setting while revealing the activities occurring within. Bounded by Church Street, Hughey Avenue, South Street, and Division Avenue, the Amway Center’s primary entrance faces north to Church Street, creating a natural extension of the nearby downtown entertainment core. The Church Street entry features a large public entry plaza connecting to the Amway Center’s spacious entry lobby.

    Hello everyone, from 2019 on, we will have a sports calendar here on Totallympics, with the aim of having the most detailed list of all the international sports events going on day by day/week by week/month by month, both for winter and summer sports, both for Olympic and non-Olympic sports. Here is the link to the Calendar and you can also see a shortcut in the home page under the Totallympics logo. The instructions for the Calendar are really quite simple, you can choose 4 different views, by month, by week, by day or "Event Stream" which is a more detailed list by month (the monthly view can get very "heavy" when there are a lot of events going on). All the users will be able to add a new event to the calendar, so to make this project successful we need the help of all of you. If you want to add a new event to the calendar, you just have to click on "Create Event" You can then choose if you want to add the event in the Summer Sports, Winter Sports or Multi-Sport Games calendar and you will be redirected to another page in which you have to choose the dates the event is running: You should always select "This is an all day event" (We are not adding timings to the sport events, it's ok they cover all day). And if the event last for more than one unselect "Single day event" and you will then have to add the Event End. In the bottom part you have a normal text box where you can add the details of the event. You can try and follow the format of the other events already added in the Calendar (example) and a moderator will fix the format if necessary. We are trying to keep track of every single international event (so the National Championships will not be added unless they are with international participation) so the most events we have in the calendar, the better it is. In the following post you will find a list of the sports already added and those already to add in the Calendar for 2019. Keep in mind you can keep adding new events for each sport when you spot a new event which is missing in the calendar. I hope you enjoy it and with the community help we can have the most detailed sports calendar around the web

    Welcome to the 2018 Totallympics Open International Song Contest The day has finally come. 2 months after we sent out a call to participate in the premiere forum musical competition event, the American delegation will like to welcome you to the 2018 Totallympics Open International Song Contest, our 11th edition overall, our 6th open edition, and it also marks the 5th anniversary of the very first edition that began in the fall (or spring for you southern hemisphere folks) of 2013. But before we get to any of that, let's hear the national anthem of the United States, the Star Spangled Banner, but it's performed by 7-year-old Malea Emma

    Thank you everyone for the kind words and for everyone who voted for Kodaline. I can honestly say I did not expect this in a million years. Kodaline are my favourite Irish band of the last 5-6 years, and the fact you have shown so much support for them here makes this a very special win. Really mean that - thank you For @mrv86 thank you for all your efforts and for an amazing show. Everything looked beautiful and all went like clockwork.... even some time-travel added in This was a huge task to take on so we owe you a lot for the great day we spent here. Have a well deserved breather now and much rest And all those who added in the extra like the medal tables, team standings updates, and added the extra stats and commentary to keep everyone informed and make things more enjoyable - you know who you are. And thanks to everyone who participated. As always, it's nice getting to know you all a little better. I believe Séamus has put some money behind the bar so feel free to join in the celebrations Just thank you again, I love you all

    Ready for more? Meet TAISC’s newest member of our family. January 10, 2019.- After a unique media format has been announced by the hosts, 2019 TAISC is ready to introduce new additions to the contest lineup. So far, previous hosts have showcased their countries, each one of them giving its personal touch to expose their culture and traditions to others. This time organizers aim to further promote the participation of users by creating a series of daily posts, displaying basic info about the host country, its people, geography and culture, not forgetting the musical aspect. As part of their plan, today they disclosed that a new member has entered TISC family. “After winning the bid process, we were in contact with our dear friend Seamus, who requested a little friend to help them promote TISC and of course, create a party atmosphere” the organizing committee told the reporters. “Looking into Mexico’s diverse folklore and legends, we found a little character that will surely get along with our Irish friend and of course will enrich this edition with its own uniqueness to the contest. Without further introductions, ladies & gentlemen we present our mascot: the Mexican axolotl” The “axolotl” is an endemic inhabitant of the Texcoco Lake system in central Mexico and has featured prominently in art and folk legends since Pre-Hispanic times. Moreover, it has recently been adopted as a symbol of Mexico’s efforts for biodiversity. However, this year’s mascot is still lacking a name, which will be chosen by Totallympics users from among 3 options, which should be disclosed during the week, in a process that will last until Thursday March 7th, the last day for the local jury to submit their votes and the start point for the other juries to send theirs.

    For anyone interested, I've added a Qualification Watch page to my blog. Basically it lists all unqualified nations and which events they may qualify in. These are based on performances over the last two years. Please note that these are chances and not guarantees. Boxing will be added once the qualification process is confirmed. I have also yet to add invitation quotas (outside of athletics/swimming) as it is a bit too early to figure those out. If anyone has any suggestions as to possible events a nation may qualify in, let me know.

    As of now, the contest is closed, but the American delegation will like to thank you for coming down here to Orlando to brave the heat to participate in the contest. I'm sorry that you're leaving Florida knowing that we can't do elections right (yes, we're in recount mode here), but I think we can agree that this contest went flawlessly. Anyway, Team USA will figure out the next steps, but there's no doubt we will participate in all future contests.

    I removed all non-Olympic events that I could. For clarification weightlifting was left as is while in karate I only removed the lightest weightclass as I cannot combine the two heavier weightclasses. Medals Lost (at least 10) - 45 - 43 - 36 - 26 - 20 - 19 - 18 - 18 - 16 - 13 - 12 - 12 - 11 - 10 - 10 Unsurprisingly Indonesia was hit the hardest, losing 45 medals, but still sitting in 11th on the medal table. Overall Southeast Asia took the hardest hit. Thailand lost half its medals and also dropped out of the top 10 and is sitting in 15th. Malaysia lost 18/20 medals. Bahrain and Kazakhstan have both moved into the top 10 (8th and 10th respectively). Japan despite being a distant second only lost 13 medals. North Korea is the only nation in the old top 10 to lose fewer than 10 medals (2 lost). The following nations which won medals no longer have any; Afghanistan, Cambodia, Unified Korea, Laos and Myanmar. Top 10 (G-S-B) 1. 77-49-37 2. 36-36-57 3. 21-29-32 4. 11-7-7 5. 11-6-13 6. 9-14-9 7. 8-11-8 8. 8-3-5 9. 6-11-9 10. 6-9-23

    I'm the only one who thinks this is kind of stupid? Olympic sports should have some sort of a long term plan, no just one appearence and that's all. 2028 Olympics being in LA is going to push for baseball and surf so they are going to have them at 2020, cut in 2024 and reinstate in 2028, instead of having some kinf og programme or arrangement between the different host citys and the IOC, for the sport stability to be in all and had an stable games.....
