  1. Germany has also a qualified athlete in the 400 free (Florian Wellbrock), the 200 fly (David Thomasberger) and the 400 IM (Philip Heintz), but i don't know why you have 2 qualified athletes for Germany in the 100 fly? I think only Marius Kusch achieved the standard so far. On the women's side Germany has 2 qualified athletes in the 800 free (Sarah Köhler and Leonie Beck), but as far as i know only Beck has achieved the standard in the 400 free. In the 100 back Germany also has an athlete with the standard (Laura Riedemann).
  2. How the hell is Germany ahead of Switzerland? Switzerland is clearly the better team ...
  3. To be honest i expected this. After all she has won everything and this season i already felt as if she wasn't 100 % motivated anymore. I am glad that she finally retired, now medal decisions will be much more open in the future, while in the past we always had the scenario that anything but a gold medal for Dahlmeier was a huge shock if she was competing at 100 %. It's pretty ironic that the popularity of biathlon in Germany deeply hurts german biathlon for the second time in less than 10 years. Both Neuner and Dahlmeier for sure would have had much longer careers if they wouldnt have earned so much money by such an early age.
  4. Would be too good to be true to finally see Kuzmina getting caught.
  5. Agree. Am i the only one who was "shocked" by how bad the animation was (at least in parts)? I think the parts where the night king attacked Winterfell and when Daenerys saved Jon with dragonfire were animated really poorly ... SPOILER: About your spoiler: Can we be sure that Theon is dead? Not that it matters much, but i dont think we actually saw him die?
  6. I never heard of him and i dont think he will be the next Bond ... My favourites are Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hardy and Michael Fassbender. Cumberbatch would be an absolute horrible choice.
  7. I think you got many of the times wrong (you probably looked at the meet records): 200 breast: I think Person won in 2:08.xxx 400 IM: I think Fraser-Holmes won in 4.14.xx 50 free: Sjöstrom won, but i think the time was a bit slower 100 free: The final will be tonight 200 IM: Heintz won in 1:58.xx 400 free: Beck won with 4:07.xx, Köhler had 4:09.xx and the 800 free final will be tonight
  8. The fullbacks have been a problem for a long time. If you have no decent fullbacks, then you have to play without fullbacks. Germany has no real number 9 anymore, but i think with guys like Sane, Reus, Müller, Gnabry and Werner there are still more than enough guys who can score goals. There is noone coming up in the next couple of years at this position, right now all german fans should pray to god that Youssoufa Moukoko will really turn out to be a generational talent, otherwise the future at this position looks really bad.
  9. On paper 1000 m (his main event) is a sprint event, but it lasts for about 70 seconds, so i am not sure you can really call it a sprint. The main story here shouldnt be that some german athlete doped, but that there is doping in german speed skating and they are still unable to win medals, financing this sport is a complete waste of money. German officials should just accept that Japan, Norway, the Netherlands and Russia are lightyears ahead of Germany when it comes to sport science/doping. The appropriate reaction would be to spend 100 million euros on some more luge/bob/skeleton tracks to get even more dominant there.
  10. No, they were talking about more recent cases with about a dozen dutch speed skaters who had suspicious blood values.
  11. Noone in Germany wants Löw to be the coach anymore. Everyone here wanted Grindel, Bierhoff, Löw and all the other guys gone after the world cup. Löw has absolutely no clue what he is doing and the formation tonight was horrible once again. On the one hand you have guys like Ginter or Schulz starting and on the other hand guys like Gündogan or Reus dont start and guys like Hummels, Boateng, Müller, Mustafi or Can dont even get nominated. Personally i would like to see something like that: Ter Stegen Rüdiger Hummels Süle/Kehrer Gündogan Kroos/Can/Goretzka/Brandt Reus Havertz Sane Gnabry Werner/Müller Germany just doesnt have any quality fullbacks, so the formation has to be one whithout fullbacks. The individual quality definitely is still there with guys like Neuer (Bayern), Ter Stegen (Barcelona), Leno (Arsenal), Hummels (Bayern), Boateng (Bayern), Süle (Bayern), Mustafi (Arsenal), Kehrer (PSG), Rüdiger (Chelsea), Kimmich (Bayern), Khedira (Juventus), Havertz (Leverkusen), Brandt (Leverkusen), Gündogan (Man City), Can (Juventus), Goretzka (Bayern), Kroos (Real), Reus (BVB), Sane (Man City), Gnabry (Bayern), Müller (Bayern), Draxler (PSG), Werner (RB Leipzig). I believe based on individual talent Germany is still easily top 8 and maybe even top 4 in the world. Of course for the next decade or so all big titles will be for France to lose, the talent gap between them and any other nation is just too big.
  12. Ouch ... I must say that hurts. Its been almost 5 years since Germany won its last world title, how long has it been for the Netherlands? All jokes aside: Its pretty sad how happy the team looked after this win, considering that Germany should absolutely destroy the Netherlands based on individual quality, but i guess with a coach like that every win is somewhat of a miracle. Best of luck to your team, maybe you guys can finally qualify for a big tournament again.
  13. Also surprising that we still havent heard any more news about the dutch athletes with suspicious blood values that ARD mentioned during the world cup final. I guess when you are from the country that owns speed skating, you dont have to worry about anything ...
  14. Hopefully not Dufter, otherwise they can shut speed skating down completely.
  15. 1) Maybe you thought of Joel Embiid (who is from Cameroon)? 2) Hardens still of play/character shouldnt matter for the MVP award. His stats are unique and i think Giannis has a better supporting cast with Lopez, Bledsoe, Brogdon and Middleton. Harden has Paul and Capela but for like half the season Paul and/or Capela were injured, so i would say Harden leading Houston to the record they currently have is more impressive than what Giannis did. The only argument pro Giannis in my opinion is that he is just a way better defender, so some might say that he has more impact overall. 3) You watched it? Really crazy to see how he grew up and where he came from. A lot of NBA players had a difficult childhood, but what guys like Giannis or Embiid went through is probably on another level.
