    better Open European Union Championships... Open European Champs would mean that Nations outside the Geographical borders of Europe would be allowed to participate, which isn't the case...

    not exactly, since all the participating Countries (some of them being invited even if they're not politically fully part of the EU) can win medals... you have to win also against MDA or any other "guest" Nation to earn your medals...

    Winter Olympic Games 2026

    well, for freestyle and snowboard you don't need to build anything (only the temporary stands and the Tv rooms are needed)...you just have to "model" the snow on the track (which is normally the same for HP, SS and BA + another slope for Moguls and Aerials...and they're already there, otherwise you only have to throw some trees down to build it), there are no sticky concrete/iron structures, so it's obvious that those are cheap venues compared to jumping hills, sliding track (which is by far the most expensive structure for winter sports, also because of very haigh cost of maintenance during the whole year) and skating/hockey arenas... p.s. all the official reports are in English, from the first to the last chapter...

    Winter Olympic Games 2026

    if you give a read at the Official Reports of the previous OG, you can find a lot of financial infos on the Games and on the Venues in particular... for instance, just to make it simpler, you can read the last 15 pages of the Vancouver Report vol.2...that would give you an idea of the costs of those venues... https://digital.la84.org/digital/collection/p17103coll8

    it's the European Union Championships... so, it's just a half-tournament without the real owners of EUBC (the Russians and their "friends")...

    Winter Olympic Games 2026

    yeah...but we still have to wait and see if by next year this government is still in charge... and trust me...from now to the next July (and after, if we really get the chance to host the Games) you'll hear everything and the opposite of that from our politicians... any question is good to feed their propaganda... however, the Olympic news never make the headlines...those are all focused on the fight vs the EU because of the balance law and on our internal political fights (today's one is on the law for the reconstruction's funding of the Genua bridge collapsed a few months ago)... and the sports news are always only about football and F1/Valentino Rossi...

    Women's Boxing AIBA World Championships 2018

    yeah, but you know...judge #1 is from USA...and it's notorious that Trump is angry with Germany because of all those scandals related to the Germand automobile brands... and then we have COL, THA and TPE, who are all very much servants to the USA because of their own political interests... so, basically they are all a bunch of cheaterrrrrsssss!!!!!

    Winter Olympic Games 2026

    I'm pretty sure there's and there will be no need for plan B... but if that's gonna happen, my 2 cents are on 2 consecutive Games in Beijing (even if I don't exclude at all a trip in Astana as a payback for the 2022 Games' robbery)...
