Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

what's the qualification rule in Artistic Gymnastics ? they finished the Pommel Horse competition but the PDF document says we will know the finalists after the end of all qualification events !! I assume there is something like one gymnast can't qualify for more 2-3 finals, right ?

 

btw surprisingly for me. our gymnast finished 5th in Pommel Horse so I assume no matter what he will be in the final. huge surprise for me !

Nope, surprisingly that is not the case. The top 8 qualify for the finals regardless if they qualified for 6 or 1 finals.

It's probably the same rule of the previous YOG. A gymnast MUST compete in all apparatus in order to qualify for any final. So if your gymnast somehow doesn't start in one of the other apparatus, he won't qualify for the final in Pommel Horse. Crazy, I know...

That was quite a match :bowdown:  full of passion that's what I enjoy to watch. the celebration of Argentinian players (and also fans) after the equalizer was like winning a World Cup or something like that.

 

this was the best competition of today for me. only if FIFA seriously develops the women's futsal , then this sport can deserve a place in the Olympics.

Lol everyone went after Egypt number 7 when the game finished. 

 

Our team played really bad and Egypt was better. Draw is a great result under this circumstances. Also Egypt likely was the hardest opponent in the group.

So Mexico got its first medal, a bronze in taekwondo, so no surprise there.

 

On the other hand, quite glad with our girl's hockey team drawing with Poland, and Paulina Vargas finishing 10th in women's floor.

 

Big dissapointment by our shooter in boy's air rifle and our swim team. Just hope Carolina Guevara qualify to the semis in her individual events.

Yes, this is it.

I'm really surprised with the Iranian gymnast qualifying in 5th. This is the most unpredictable apparatus in men's artistic gymnastics, so there's a decent chance the Iranian boy can walk away with a medal.

The award for worst mixed team event (in a very competitive field) surely has to go to the new Mixed Youth Team BMX Race.

 

Not only is it conducted as 2 individual competitions - 1 for men and women each. The reuslts website doesn't even acknowledge a final combined ranking. And the interaction between team members is non existant, simply win points for a combined team score.

 

And what has the result been.... it has denied :LAT Latvia and :ECU Ecuador of medals they would have won had it been separate individual events. BMX is already 'youth' and 'exciting' enough without the need for a confusing mixed team event that has resulted in neither of the event winners taking home a gold medal!!!

Yeah cycling has been pretty terrible in terms of Youth Olympics since 2010. There's no need for combined/mixed events. They can easily have boys and girls events. 16 for BMX (plus the 9 for freestyle), 16 for mountain bike and 24 for road, it's not that difficult
