  1. How many goals do you think Russia or Sweden would score against Estonia, Great Britain or Japan? More than 30?

    There's a rumour that this could get worse for Thailand...

    There is now also a possibility that Thailand could be stripped of hosting this year's World Championships

    Also 2 Thais were announced to have failed tests last month. That means 6 of Thailand's team failed drug tests at the World Championships. They won 17 medals (if you include clean/jerk and snatch separately). 10 could be lost

    Sources in the UK are very worried that the Argentine player Emiliano Sala may have been onboard the 2 seater aircraft that disappeared in the English Channel this morning
  6. Only thing I know so far is: "Team GB are set to be represented in seven of these; alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, figure skating, short track speed skating, snowboarding and curling."
  7. Some of the results from the 1913 European Championships https://www.letempsarchives.ch/page/JDG_1913_02_24/3/article/5933762/bandy The big question is whether it was bandy or ice hockey they were playing.

    Minor sports and television

    An interesting example here from the sport of cricket in the UK In 2005 cricket was available on free television, in 2006 it switched to satelitte television with a subscription fee. In 2005 the biggest TV viewing figures were 8.5 million, by 2015 it dropped to 500,000. During the same period there was a 33% drop in people playing the sport. So the money that they gained from the TV contract had to be used to get more young people playing the game. The deal was a good one but they had to use the money to make up for massive loss of publicity.
