Looks like they finally started to work on it, the Artistic Gymnastics start lists etc for tomorrow are in, https://www.europeanchampionships.com/results/en/all-sports/competition-schedule.htm

Rowing is less than an hour away from the start and there are not even start lists. This whole thing is an even bigger joke than the European Games....I mean, look at Totallympics: the fact this 'event' is not even talked about in it's own thread or in 'Athletics at the European Championships Thread' threads says enough about 'the European Championships' really not being 'a thing'.

It's a joke. I mean, come on, putting Berlin's athletics Europeans and Glasgow's track cycling in the same boat and calling it European Championships is just about the stupidest thing I've heard.

Have you heard anything at all in your media calling it 'The European Championships'? I mean, here in Dutch media there has been a slight mention of these events being put together, but apart from that mention stuff is just called 'the European athletics/swimming/rowing/gymnastics championships', being several stand-alone events.

I don't think so. Whole concept sounds like the British "Mo Farah" and "3000m walk WR" hype. :p

Dude, Mo Farah has quit the track, can't we just pretend he never happened instead of keep bringing him up? :p

They do actually it's a commercial event for the TV, nothing more...

It's a start, and it's working (at least here). Four pages on today's l'Equipe, 100 hours+ of live broadcasting on public television. For sports like rowing or triathlon it will be the best they ever got outside of the olympics.

the worst thing is that they scheduled all these events together and we can't enjoy european championship, if really wanted multi sports events should have taken European Games (also unnecessary event imo) and bring it all together
