    Minor sports and television

    If you pick only sport packages (for example you want only basic and no music, no film, no other entertainment, no Discovery-like science channels) it might be more a less the same price as some good standard - I'd say about 40 € ?

    And I know some people who can't stand some Polish commentators and watch sport events on Rai Sport which is available in some TV networks

    Minor sports and television

    In Poland we have quite a few sport channels. 1. TVP Sport is a channel of Polish national broadcaster. Because it's national the whole TVP is rather politically ruled and thus highly criticized, especially lately, but the sport team looks quite OK. Of course it is said that they use sport as part of the propaganda, which is wrong, but quite useful. TVP Sport has a wide range of rights - WTA (bought because of Radwańska's good years in the time when the rights were available to buy in Poland), some good football (like Italian Cup, all the matches of first national team), NHL, some major judo events, lately they invested much money in professional boxing, even opening the weekly magazine, and many more. What is not included in the TV channel is to find in the internet and mobile app. Last year before FIFA World Cup the channel became widely accessible with no additional payment, which is the big step for it. 2. Eurosport - I think many of you know it very well. Their biggest "power" is snooker and winter sports (in Poland curling has quite good publicity, though it's not very popular), but Polish Eurosport has also, in my opinion, very strong cycling team with a great duo that makes even 200 km boring stages really interesting because of their funny but also professional style of commentating (this duo commentates also biathlon). 3. Polsat Sport - the biggest not-public Polish broadcaster has three sport channels+one fight channel+six premium channels for UEFA Champions League only. Highly criticised for making almost all big events in PPV. Important partner of Polish volleyball (mostly men), but this year they lost the rights to CEV Champions League. They have also MotoGP, a little bit of football (with Polish 1. Liga, which is second level league and also mentioned Champions League) and lately some badminton. 4. Canal+ - first premium TV in Poland with two sport channels (sometimes sport is also on the other ones)+one after taking over the other station. Main partner of Polish football Ekstraklasa, which is weak sport product, but the broadcasting is really top level, also they have English Premiership. Last year they bought Italian Women's Volleyball Serie A1, which became the preludium to buying the CEV Champions League (both men and women). They have rights for Polish Speedway Ekstraliga and Speedway Grand Prix and Speedway of Nations, Polish male handball league, some EHF Champions League. Also some golf events. 5. Eleven Sports - the newest station, started with two channels, now they have four. As the name says, they have mostly football - Spanish and German league in cooperation with Canal+ and Italian and French league (instead of German, all of them were taken from Canal+ after Eleven came into Polish market). But they have also some ATP tennis, EHF Champions League (I don't know the rules between them and Canal+, they sometimes give the same game in both stations) and Formula 1. The style of commentators is very easy and they try to interact with public on Twitter with dedicated hashtags like #włoskarobota (italian work) or #modanafrancję (fashion for France) etc. 6. Sportklub - last and least, because they are really minor channel. They have for example Austrian and Brazilian league and Copa Libertadores, some foreign basketball (Spanish and Turkish) and handball (SEHA and Bundesliga), and modern pentathlon (World Cup Final and World Champs LIVE laser-run from individual and mixed relays+summary of the other World Cups), though the commentators are taken from other sports and know very little about the sport. They also have the Fightklub channel for some combat sports (they used to have many judo events).

  7. No Thailand, no one is interested in hosting this group so FIVB asked Poland. We'd rather like men's tournament but if we negotiate good we might get both, maybe even for a lower price for women's.
  8. I don't think we will choose Russia. Though it is our national way of thinking to look for an easier way, in sports we have usually less money than needed, which might be crucial.

    Men's Curling WCF World Championship 2019

    Polish Team will be the Sopot one - they promoted Poland to division A of Europeans. If they will start - of course our federation wants them to start on their own costs (which is, if I count correctly, about 9000 €).
  10. On 26th Decembe some new discussion threads have been opened in summer sports subforums I follow but I didn't get notifications (including the one that I opened though I don't remember doing it).
  11. Aaaa, yes, I forgot about the place for Grand Slam. Thanks! (BTW, I thought I saw that Grand Slam qualifications are counted).
  12. I can add Modern Pentathlon today. EDIT: Some kind of template would be useful.
  13. Am I getting this right - Wuxi Grand Slam Final isn't counted to the Olympic Ranking?
  14. this time it's Brazil instead
  15. I think it's usually first Monday or Tuesday of the month, but this time Tuesday was on New Year, so we need to wait until next week.

  17. 2. I do, it's my favourite one Still it doesn't change the thing you wrote that sentence, so somebody could miss or misunderstand the emoji and from my response would know the rule.
  18. 1. Not in this one (Hockey Series) - the additional place is for qualification event (home-away match) and the places for it will be given by the ranking. 2. Asian Games are taken to cosideration as Continental Championships in meaning of the qualification system.
  19. Japan is no longer considered as Host Country, as it has won the Asian Games. But it doesn't change anything, just the wrong part is in bold.

    Totallympics Sports Review of 2018

    Male sportsman of the year - Kamil Stoch Female sportsman of the year - Ester Ledecka. Team of the year - Polish W4x Junior sportsman of the year (under 20 years old at 1/1/2018) - Ahmed El Gendy Junior sportswoman of the year (under 20 years old at 1/1/2018) - Iga Świątek Greatest moment of the year - Double gold for Justyna Święty-Ersetic at Europeans in 400 and 4x400 during just 1,5 hour Biggest idiot of the year - Tamara Alekszejev and Valentin Prades for celebrating medals (Tamara bronze at Europeans, Prades gold at Worlds) before reaching the finish line and eventually losing it to Sarolta Kovács and James Cooke respectively.
  21. Mexico is for road, I don't know about the other two.
  22. For me: - first waterpolo National Team game in my home city (unfortunately big loss against Germany - when I watched their game against Italy with my friends in Budapest they said that Germans are really weak - then I told them whom the Germans have beaten in the qualification...) - my first journey for my beloved modern pentathlon to Hungary (as the reporter of Polish Modern Pentathlon Association) - finally satisfactory competition by women's volleyball team and I had the opportunity to see it from the tribune in Bydgoszcz (unfortunately I didn't get the accreditation as there was very limited place for journalists there) - great Christmas gift from Cuban women volleyball team that gave up the Olympic qualification giving the spot to our girls - and a bitter sweet story about the death of our First Lady of Sport - Irena Szewińska. Just three weeks before her death I met her at the Olympic Picnic in Warsaw and took a photo with her. Probably I'm one of the last people to get photo with her.
