  1. Bergsma!!! Canadians stunned by the Dutch after a shitty race, where basically 4/5 skaters took a big lead over the main group and then fought for the medals only between them... nice effort by Bergsma, though, who closed the gap by himself after having underestimated the leading group for a while, but he did react just in time not to waste his chances and finally edged out the Canadian duo... no comment on Giovannini's performance...senseless...just senseless (and useless)... another championship to forget as quick as possible for ITA is over...
  2. Blondin wins the women's mass start... the favourite Schouten only 3rd and Francesca Lollobrigida only 5th...frankly I don't understand her attitude during the race...she's been always in the middle of the main group and then she started her final sprint from way too far..she basically never had a single chance to make the podium today...
  3. yeah, you're right...I don't know why I took Ichinohe's time as a referral (he skated the 1.42 in heat #1)... (I must confess that I'm a bit distracted...I'm currently watching Speedskating, Football and Hockey at the same time )...
  4. Thomas Krol! finally, Mantia's time (staying on top from heat #1) goes down...
  5. the worst Roest since quite a long time... Oda was flying in his second lap, but crashed badly off the curve entering the "home" straight... (at least, he's not injured)...
  6. Yuskov can't overtake Mantia... however, both are well above (about 2 seconds) the world (& track) record held by Nuis... so, I think the race is still open...
  7. and the "old fox" Ireen Wust spoils the party in the women's 1500m... with Miho Takagi not even on the podium, beaten by 2 Russians (Lalenkova and Kazelina)... now let's see what happens in the men's race over the same distance...
  8. yeah, like in the -67kg...the battle between Crescenzo and Samdan (with Maresca knockin' at the door, just in case the Turkish guy edges out Crescenzo) is really entertaining... today Crescenzo played his chances very well against Assadilov...I think this is the first time he wins against the Kazakh in the last 2 years...since his world gold medal for sure (I have no idea of their record back in time)... meanwhile I didn't expect Busà to lose that way...a man with his degree of experience can't blow his chance when he's ahead with only 4 seconds left on the clock... but Aghayev is still an "old fox" with many tricks in his bag...

  12. Italian tv influence is also very evident...most games of our teams (in particular, both the opening matches, men and women) are scheduled in the Japanese morning, which means 2 a.m. or 4 a.m. here in Italy...
  13.

  15. if that WKF document we did write a lot about in the past months has still some value, then final rank in their respective class has priority over the number of points (which is the following tie-breaker if both end up in the same spot in their class)...
  16. disappointed by the Canadians..but, more than anything, by Italy... tomorrow Lollo in the mass start is the only realistic chance to put us on the chart of this world championship...
  17. and it was a 7-year old record, not one that gets broken every season... by the way, Kramer was also in the team that previously held the record...
  18. WR for the Netherlands in the men's Team Pursuit... another Gold incoming for them (but don't underestimate Canada, especially since they're skating after the Dutch)...
  19. lovely Jutta Leerdam surprises all the favourites in the women's 1000m and no WR in this race (even if the Dutch girl was really close to it)... super-disappointing race by Bowe and Kodaira...especially the American...
  20. yeah, but it's not that unusual...look at the 5000m result...the 3 medallists were close, then there's an abyss between 3rd and 4th and then the group just outside the medals is very thick and close once again... sometimes performance sports can produce very weird results in terms of distribution of efforts...
