  1. As an Indian, we supported you wholeheartedly in the SF against USA, but time now to turn against u guys Need Argentina to win final and take themselves out of the Oly qualifiers...
  2. As someone having done the calculations independently, I can second this... Canada will rise above Chile, SA and Italy and will enter the 8th-11th seed bracket at Oly qualifiers along with China, Korea and USA (assuming that Argentina beats Canada in the final and that Belarus or Russia dont win the European Championships)... High Indian interest here as well, as a Canada win will assure India stays in the 4th-7th seed bracket and thus plays Oly qualifiers at home... Does anyone have a live streaming link by the way??
  3. Since the discussion is currently on TV Shows, if anyone wants to watch something AWESOME but still different from the well known American shows, try the South Korean tv show The Genius. Available here - https://www.reddit.com/r/TheGenius/comments/70jog1/links_to_all_subbed_episodes_of_the_genius_s14/ It is my ALL TIME favorite show and nothing else even comes close (and I watch a LOT of TV). It is a show about people playing different and highly interesting cerebral/social games, which should translate very well for Totallympians with our shared love of sport and competition. The only slight issue is that it's in Korean, means you need to follow the english subtitles. Every one who watches the genius has only 1 of 2 reactions - (1) It is AWESOME or (2) I cudn't handle the subtitles. But it's also the first show I ever watched with subtitles, so it's not that difficult and as long as u can handle them, u'll be in for a treat.
  4. I'd agree with you but not when the Olympics is involved. If the alternate body wud have been in charge of holding, say, a world championship, federations might have still been strong-armed and stayed loyal to AIBA. But with Olympic participation on the line, they'll show AIBA the finger...
  5. Nah - India is one of the ones missing. We use water, not toilet paper to do our business
  6. But once IOC de-recognizes AIBA, do the national federations really care about AIBA anymore ?? I wud imagine that other than the few favored nations like Russia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan, no one really likes AIBA or cares about them as they keep robbing their boxers. Some powerful boxing nations like USA, UK and Ireland clearly hate AIBA. Its a little idealistic, and I think eventually all this will just boil over, but the ideal solution for me would be for IOC to suspend AIBA and continue boxing at Tokyo through an interim body. Of course, that doesnt mean only pro boxers. Amateur boxers and proper qualifying tournaments still have to be there. And ideally, a change in the current bogus scoring system.
  7. I always use this https://arena.unitedworldwrestling.org/sport-event/show/b6b4b24a-d22e-11e8-b941-080027548b1b/live
  8. Hmmm ...add 57 kg women to this as well. Completely stacked bottom half (especially bottom quarter), Hungarian girl in top half ended with Bronze...
  9. Heartiest congratulations to Sourav Kothari on winning the World Billiards Championships !! New name added to added to India's long list of world champions in billiards http://www.wbeventsonline.com/?page_id=57&TID=282
  10. Lets get the categories right guys - its 50 kg, 53 kg, 57 kg, 63 kg, 68 kg and 76 kg at Tokyo. The team does look pretty good....
  11. Actually my question was about the 2nd period - the one where blue made the challenge. The action that happens with Jpn leading 10-8 and 28 secs left to go. It was initially given 2-1, JPN challenged asking for 4, challenge was turned down and hence Russia got extra point to make it 12-10. You say that it your opinion, it was a stupid challenge and a clear 2. Just want to understand why. To me, it seems like a 4 - JPN seems to be the clear attacker till they hit the ground and they seem to go from feet to Russian's back, at which point Russia counters and gets the 1. I am guessing you are saying it was 2 as may be Russia's bottom hit the ground a milisecond before JPN. but seemed like a 4 to me (and of course the JPN coach who challenged).
