  1. The Italian bid isn't very strong but it's quite weak, in general terms. It become very strong compared to the Swedish one that is the weakest ever, but from what I hear around it won't be enough for Italy to host the Games, and if it will go in this way, I hope it will be the last time Italy will candidate to host Olympic Games.
  2. I think in skeet Italian girls will qualify both spots, even if there are still great shooters like the 2 Brits and the French girl still not qualified. I am more worried about men trap because there are a lot of shooters capable of great scores, it won't be easy to qualify and this is a problem also for the mixed event
  3. Van vleuten tried twice in last 5 km, but Bastianelli didn't lose 1 metre and kept the wheel of the Dutch champion without any problem.....
  4. Why tactical suicide and why depressing sprint?
  5. I hope not because yesterday with Wierer, Italy, in my opinion, would have won the world title and I don't think we will see Gontier shooting clean anymore...
  6. Pity for Valcepina, she did something amazing, one of the best 500 race I have ever seen coming back from 4th place in the last lap, doing something different from she usually does being most of the times in first place after the start. The DQ was not so clear but it's definitely not a scandal, she could have stayed safe with silver medal, but she wanted gold and will go home with nothing...
  7. It was well known that Australia and GB in team pursuit are and will be far away from Italy but I think that Italian male team pursuit will be around 3.50 next year and they will fight for bronze with Denmark and New Zealand. For the women it will be more difficult, I'm quite sure they will be around 4. 15 or less next year but it won't be enough to beat GB, Australia and USA.
  8. So Hahlen is at least 70 hundreds behind Goggia.... I had the feeling that also Gut time is at least 20 hundreds slower, good work in Crans Montana for all Swiss skiers.
  9. The first split of Hadalin was not correct, it stopped at least 30 or 40 cents after the red gate, I don't think he would have lost less than 2 seconds.
  10. My early prediction for Italy: Archery 1 medal (men team as the best chance but possible also mixed team and Nespoli in individual) Athletics 1 medal (Palmisano in race walking and Tamberi in high jump could have a chance) Canoeing 1 medal (i think among both k1 slalom, k 1 200 man, c2 1000 man 1 medal should be possible) Cycling road 1 medal (Nibali, Longo Borghini, Guderzo, and also Moscon in time trial are the best chances) Cycling track 2 medals (men pursuit, men and women omnium and men Madison as the best chances) Cycling MTB 1 medal (men race) Fencing 5 medals ( 3 or 4 medals from foil, 1 from men team sarbre and 1 from epee) Gymnastics artistic 1 medal (I think something good from the young girls) Rhytmics 1 medal from team Judo 1 medal (Basile, Lombardo, Giuffrida, men 81 kg, Gwend are possible medal contenders) Modern pentathlon 1 medal (more an hope than a real chance but especially girls are very talented) Karate 2 medals (women kata, Cardin, Busà and Crescenzo are medal contenders) Rowing 3 medals (four, quadruple, pair and lightweight double are medal contenders, then there is the dream of a medal from the 8, of course all men boats) Sailing 1 medal (Nacra for sure then both Rsx and men 470 could have a chance) Shooting 3 medals (Skeet, trap and mixed trap for sure, then there is Zublasing) Swimming 4 medals (pool and open water:Detti in 400 and 800, Paltrinieri in 800, 1500 and open water, Quadarella in 1500, Miressi in 100, 4x100 men freestyle, Cusinato in 400 medley, Bridi and Bruni in open water, I think this will be the best national team Italy ever had, many very good swimmers for final but I fear not for medals) Volleyball 1 medal (counting also beach volley: women team and Nicai Lupo in beach are medal contenders) Waterpolo 1 medal (probably men more likely than women) Wrestling 1 medal (Chamizo)
  11. Oh, the tournament of an entire career, the boy just turned 20 two months ago and he lost to the winner of the tournament and to the number 4 of the 66 kg world ranking....
  12. Thrilling last touch but it was quite clearly an attac au fer of Curatoli...
  13. He did better 10 days ago in Poland and I think he could already lift around 243 in total, scarantino wasn't at the same level when he was 16.
  14. Disaster????????When italian fencing supporters start to understand that winning in fencing is much, much, much, much more difficult than 15 years ago? Disaster for a world medal?Ok Garozzo and Avola are better than korean and spanish fencers but surprising results often happens in sport (remember Marco Cecchinato in Paris)
  15. Quando si analizzano i risultati della scherma non si può non tenere presente che il livello globale di questo sport è cresciuto in maniera esponenziale negli ultimi 15 anni, altrimenti si rischia di incorrere in analisi catastrofiche che non rappresentano la realtà .Detto questo in 4 prove a squadre su 6 siamo ampiamente da podio tutt' oggi.
