  1. Only medal event today was the Women’s Beach Volleyball: G) Egypt S) Kenya B) Mozambique The semi finals and medal matches for the men’s tournament will take place tomorrow. Hosts Morroco play South Africa, whilst Rwanda face Gambia for a spot in the final.
  2. It was a British selection event! I believe they would both have been selected so that’s why they may have been jointly celebrating!
  3. The National sport of England is Cricket, but I would also put football up there too! My county, West Sussex, has an official sport though, it’s called Stoolball. It’s basically a cross over between cricket, baseball and rounders and is very popular in villages and schools across the county.
  4. You're definitely right about GBs lack of strength in the field events. I agree with most of your picks but there are a few other candidates: Ugen and Sawyers (W Long Jump), Bramble (M Long Jump), Baker (M High Jump), Ogbeta (W Triple Jump), McKinna (W Shot Put), Emerson (Heptathlon).
  5. The next few weeks should be really good for us too with the London Anniversary Games, British Championships and Birmingham Diamond League. Hopefully we can start to qualify in the field events where we’ve only got 3 athletes qualified across all the events at the moment
  6. Goalball Qualification Paralympic Qualification Tournament, Fort Wayne 2 - 9 July 2019 The following Nations have qualified 1 Quota Place for Goalball at the Summer Paralympic Games 2020 - Men's Tournament Lithuania Turkey The following Nations have qualified 1 Quota Place for Goalball at the Summer Paralympic Games 2020 - Women's Tournament China United States
  7. Wow!! Russia defeated us comfortably at the start of the tournament!
  8. Liberia qualified in Athletics, Emmanuel Matadi (100m) https://www.iaaf.org/athletes/liberia/emmanuel-matadi-255584
  9. You're absolutely right! And guess who is building the main venues for the Solomon Islands Pacific Games in 2023, Taiwan! Because Solomon Islands still recognises ROC! The whole thing is called 'Stadium Diplomacy' and China and Taiwan are building stadiums across the developing world because of it. There was a funny story in Grenada where the contract for building the stadium was literally swapped from Taiwan to China halfway through construction because the government swapped their allegiances!
  10. Great Britain have been set a target of winning 68 medals in Tokyo, bettering the Rio 2016 total of 67. Whilst it is unlikely that Britain will maintain their second position in the medal table, it is possible for Britain to better their medal count from Rio. I was surprised when my individual calculations came back with an average of 72 medals, however what is always important to remember when talking about GB's medal prospects is that everything builds up to one moment. We saw in PyeongChang how Britain's top secret technology won 3 medals in Skeleton, despite limited form coming into the games. More summer sports have the engineering, research and design structures in place that set GB apart from the rest of the world at the Olympic Games, including Cycling, Rowing and Canoeing. I'm honestly not sure how it's gonna go, we will either shock the world and have another amazing games or return to more realistic Beijing medal standards (52), sparking a rethink in the whole elite performance sport sector. Archery (1-2) Athletics (4-8) Badminton (1-2) Boxing (3-7) Canoe (3-5) Cycling (7-14) Diving (2-4) Equestrian (3-5) Fencing (0-1) Hockey (1-2) Golf (0-1) Gymnastics (2-5) Judo (0-2) Modern Pentathlon (1-2) Rowing (3-6) Rugby Sevens (0-2) Sailing (3-6) Shooting (1-2) Swimming (5-11) Taekwondo (2-4) Tennis (0-2) Triathlon (3-4) LOW ESTIMATE: 47 HIGH ESTIMATE: 97 AVERAGE: 72

  12. These games really lost momentum throughout the week for me, and the forum too it seems. First few days were exciting with lots of events and generated much discussion on the thread. By the later stages there were only a few events per day and lots of similar sports, the thread also seemed to lose interest too. It will be interesting to see what happens in Krakow, hopefully a proper aquatics and athletics program will make the games more exciting.
  13. There are more and more differences now with devolved governments using their powers in innovative ways! For example university is free in Scotland, £3000 in Wales and £9000 in England a year! Since every sport also has a commonwealth level organisation for each nation, the 2 tier system already exists in many sports.
  14. Execution seems to be the main difference between them and one of the execution judges is Belgian!! The others are from France, Britain and Ukraine.
  15. Some info about the road race! It's very flat and 8 laps of a 15km circuit, the distance between the highest and lowest points is 32 metres!
