  4. This is hard, too many good songs this time and how can I fit all my favourites into the top 12? Every time I set my final selection, I feel bad about those few just below the line and want to find a way to bump them up.... Time for another pot of tea, this is going to be an all-nighter
  5. Yes I do, which reminds me, better keep my 192 day streak going
  6. Like dodge said, people from Northern Ireland can choose to represent Ireland or GB.
  7. I like the new format too because it will make teams really focus on picking horses that excel in cross-country, otherwise they are taking a huge risk. With one discarded score it was always worth taking a risk with the selection and include maybe one combination that is super strong in dressage but unreliable on cross-country in the hope they can make it around. But I do hope they make difficult cross country tests at big championships like the Olympics so that the cream will rise to the top.
  8. Such emotion from Mariano, this is lovely to see. Congrats Brazil
  9. Rhys McClenaghan Bags Bronze on Pommel - Becomes First Irish Gymnast To Win World Medal Rhys McClenagham became Ireland's first-ever gymnastics medalist at a world championships as he claimed bronze in a high-quality men's pommel final in Stuttgart. Having seen his rival, Olympic champion, Max Whitlock nail his routine, the pressure was on the European champion to respond in kind. The Irish gymnast, who already made history by becoming Ireland's first world finalist, pulled out a top-drawer routine to score 9.000 on execution and a total score of 14.400. This provisionally placed Rhys in the silver medal position, just 0.100 behind Whitlock's total, but Chinese Taipei's Chih Kai Lee overtook the Irishman with his 14.433 routine. Rhys posted the highest execution score of the final and will know now that if he can up his difficulty between now and Tokyo, the sky is the limit for this young gymnast. Speaking after the final Rhys summed up his feelings on a magnificent and historic bronze medal: "It feels pretty amazing. That was a tough final, it was the best pommel final that I've ever seen and it was a privilege to be in. It's phenomenal to be standing with a medal around my neck at the World Championships, and to be going to the Olympic games is something special." Luke celebrating with his coach Luke Carson Congratulations Rhys, world bronze medalist!!
  10. Thank you. I was so nervous watching the routine and now I can relax and enjoy this special moment!
  11. Yessss Rhys!!! What a day for Irish gymnastics. Unbelievable to have a world medalist!!! And a 9 for execution!!
  12. Happy birthday Matt and hope you enjoyed your birthday lunch
  13. Just caught up with the men's team final.... deserved win for Russia, they were solid across the board today and sealed it with Dalaloyan and Nagorniy nailing their high bar routines. Zou Jingyuan's P Bars routine.... what a thing of beauty!!
