Wait a minute... Wasn't gymnastics part of the European Championships thing? So we will have gymnastics events at the European Games and also European Championships?

I don't really dislike the European Games, but if we have Games + Championships, I believe acrobatics, aerobics and trampoline should be axed. Artistic and rhythmic are all we need. I like the way they only allow one gymnast per nation to qualify for the finals. This gives hope for smaller nations to earn a medal, especially in rhythmic gymnastics, which is a sport that absolutely needs to have some variety among the medalists instead of RUS, UKR, BLR, BUL and ISR (and ITA in groups).

But they need support from the population, whereas I have a feeling Belarus (or who knows, Turkey for the next one) don't give two fucks about what the population thinks :p

Taekwondo is not part of the Games? 

 

That is a big disadvantage for the Europeans iro qualification to Tokio. All the other continents will have their games, where they can get additional 40 points and Europe not. Not good.

It's insane to see Great Britain on the list of qualifiers. Portugal is also kind of a surprise (even though they won a bronze medal at the European Championships a long time ago) but Great Britain is just insaaaane. How much improvement in a short time! I'm amazed!

Well, European Games will never be a serious affair if it does not closely correlate with the qualification to Olympics. With swimming and rowing out, athletics with a clown fiesta format, 3x3 basketball and beach football as the team events, it is highly ridiculous and no athlete would intervene with their preparation for real events that matter.

 

In all honesty, if we're making a mockery out of formats of Olympic sports, I'd just say scratch the entire idea (that's awful) and just make European Games an event entirely based on non-Olympic sports. Invite dancers, air sports, climbing, fighting sports that are non-Olympic, you can have your lovely beach football on the side as well, but at the moment I see this as a waste of money, where B and C tier athletes compete for the chance of getting their name on the first page of the newspapers in their country and of course that gives us something to write about as well.

There are countries where the European Games are expected to be on the first page of any newspaper?
