  1. Yesterday ;GER and , today two for I will post a full summary at the end of the competition
  2. Because the referendum had a clause that said there had to be a 50% turnout for the vote to be valid! Ultimately they ignored that rule anyway!

  4. Congratulations to @Agger and @wumo26 for an amazing victory and congratulations to @dezbee2008 and @Olympian1010 for successfully organising another incredible contest. Pretty pleased with my voting, Denmark 9 points, USA 12, Ireland 11 Big thanks to everyone who voted for the British song, so close to a medal but the Anglo-Irish TISC battle will roll on after such a close result! Finally @OlympicIRL and @dcro have done it once again, coming up with exciting and (simple!!!) team challenges and little extras that add so much to the contest and keeps us on our toes! All eyes on Italy 2019 now!
  5. Sorry for missing my votes!! Got my time zones mixed up where I am, thought I was voting at 7pm, turns out it was 6pm! Everyone who got points from me is very welcome!
  6. You can understand why China have picked ice sledge hockey as a sport to focus on when looking at the rapid development of Russia and South Korea over the past 8 years, both winning medals at their home games despite very little previous success at the Paralympics. I would expect China to develop some promising talents in para nordic skiing too, where certain events have a pretty poor standard and China should be able to win multiple medals in Beijing.
  7. Definitely be good to clear this up. My preference has always been giving the winner first refusal, followed by second and third place. If all 3 decline then an open selection where individuals or groups of members are invited to nominate themselves as the next host. However, there should be some minimum eligibilty requirements, firstly the country should have competed in the contest that had just taken place, secondly the specific member bidding should have participated in at least 2 contests and thirdly member should be active across the entire forum, not simply popping up twice a year for TISC. If all these conditions are met then I'm happy with a random draw or some convoluted game of keys to decide the host, but definitely not a vote by members.
  8. Singapore We Are Singapore - bit of a personal story to this one since I'm now living in Singapore and heard this non-stop throughout the months of July and August everywhere, culminating in the National Day performance its become a major earworm so had to share it here! OFFICIAL VIDEO LIVE NATIONAL DAY PARADE PERFORMANCE
  9. The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games organising committee have announced the final list of sports and venues for the Games. The major change compared to Gold Coast 2018 is that Beach Volleyball, Shooting and 5x5 Basketball have been dropped and replaced by Judo, Basketball 3x3 and Wheelchair Basketball These are the sports: Aquatics - Diving, Swimming (Para) Athletics (Para) Badminton Basketball 3x3 Boxing Cycling - Track (Para), Mountain Bike, Road Field Hockey Gymnastics - Artisitc, Rhythmic Judo Lawn Bowls Netball Rugby Sevens Squash Table Tennis Triathlon (Para) Weightlifting (Powerlifting) Wheelchair Basketball 3x3 Wrestling The venues for the games will be spread within Birmingham and the West Midlands region, with only 1 venue (London Olympic Velodrome) falling outside of the West Midlands. The Birmingham city centre venues include the National Exhibition Centre and attached Genting Arena, Birmingham Arena, Symphony Hall and Victoria Square. Other Birmingham venues include University of Birmingham, Alexander Stadium, Villa Park Stadium. The West Midlands venues include the planned Sandwell Aquatics Centre, Coventry Arena, Royal Leamington Spa Bowls Club, Sutton Coldfield Park, Cannock Chase. I'm impressed by this plan, mainly as only 1 venue (Sandwell Aquatics Centre) will have to be newly built and other venues will be upgraded at the University and Alexander stadium which will become a stadium worthy of being the home of British Athletics. It's a shame Shooting was unable to make the program, the National Shooting Centre is in Surrey and had been proposed but it is a few hours drive away, but since it is only an optional sport the Gommonwealth Games Federation surely saw it's exclusion coming!
  10. Since there has been a discussion throughout the games about how NOCs have been claiming mixed team medals as their own I thought I'd have a look and see who the mixed team medalists are! Prepare for a long list! Italy: 6-2-0 (8) Hungary: 4-1-0 (5) Bulgaria: 3-1-0 (4) China: 3-1-0 (4) Spain: 2-2-2 (6) Mexico: 2-1-2 (5) Ukraine: 2-1-2 (5) France: 2-1-1 (4) Vietnam: 2-1-0 (3) United States: 2-0-7 (9) Australia: 1-3-2 (6) Egypt: 1-2-3 (6) Japan: 1-2-3 (6) Russia: 1-2-3 (6) Chinese Taipei: 1-2-0 (3) India: 1-2-0 (3) Germany: 1-1-4 (6) Colombia: 1-1-0 (2) Portugal: 1-1-0 (2) Belarus: 1-0-1 (2) Canada: 1-0-1 (2) Poland: 1-0-1 (2) Slovenia: 1-0-1 (2) South Africa: 1-0-1 (2) Sweden: 1-0-1 (2) Uzbekistan: 1-0-1 (2) Azerbaijan: 1-0-0 (1) Cambodia: 1-0-0 (1) Croatia: 1-0-0 (1) Denmark: 1-0-0 (1) Haiti: 1-0-0 (1) Honduras: 1-0-0 (1) Mongolia: 1-0-0 (1) Panama: 1-0-0 (1) Singapore: 1-0-0 (1) Sri Lanka: 1-0-0 (1) Switzerland: 1-0-0 (1) Venezuela: 1-0-0 (1) Argentina: 0-4-2 (6) New Zealand: 0-3-0 (3) Great Britain: 0-2-1 (3) Netherlands: 0-2-0 (2) South Korea: 0-2-0 (2) Thailand: 0-2-0 (2) Belgium: 0-1-1 (2) Czech Republic: 0-1-1 (2) Ecuador: 0-1-1 (2) Kazakhstan: 0-1-1 (2) Kyrgyzstan: 0-1-1 (2) Tajikistan: 0-1-1 (2) Zimbabwe: 0-1-1 (2) Costa Rica: 0-1-0 (1) Estonia: 0-1-0 (1) Fiji: 0-1-0 (1) Hong Kong: 0-1-0 (1) Madagascar: 0-1-0 (1) Malaysia: 0-1-0 (1) Morocco: 0-1-0 (1) Norway: 0-1-0 (1) Algeria: 0-0-2 (2) Austria: 0-0-2 (2) Brazil: 0-0-2 (2) Burundi: 0-0-1 (1) Finland: 0-0-1 (1) Greece: 0-0-1 (1) Guatemala: 0-0-1 (1) Kosovo: 0-0-1 (1) Mauritius: 0-0-1 (1) Namibia: 0-0-1 (1) Peru: 0-0-1 (1) Turkmenistan: 0-0-1 (1) Zambia: 0-0-1 (1) This list means that technically 106 nations will be taking medals home from Buenos Aires with Costa Rica, Cambodia, Guatemala, Fiji, Haiti, Panama, Singapore, Tajikistan, Zimbabwe, Madagascar, Turkmenistan, Namibia and Peru winning medals in mixed team events but not individual events.
  11. Very impressed by the crowds in Buenos Aires! They could double the capacity of all the venues and it seems like they would still be packed full!
  12. Lots of middle distance medals decided in the Cross Country this morning, here's a summary: Kenya (3 gold, 1 silver) Ethiopia (1 gold, 2 silver, 3 bronze) Uganda (1 gold, 1 bronze) Burundi (1 gold) Australia (1 silver) France (1 silver) Morocco (1 silver) Eritrea (1 bronze) Sri Lanka (1 bronze)

  16. There will be 14 Badminton events at the 2020 Paralympics, all they did here was just add some extra doubles events and split some combined classifications. But I agree with you about the number of athletics and swimming events, they shoud reduce the number of events per classification. For example the S3 classification doesn't need a 50m, 100m and 200m freestyle event on the program, just 2 would be sufficient.
  17. They were but the IOC scrapped the planned year change last year, hence why the next Summer Youth Olympics will be held in 2022, not 2023 as originally planned.
