Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

Recommended Posts

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

A few days ago when I made a schedule for myself, there was supposed to be an artistic gymnastics team competition yesterday, now it's nowhere to be found on any day. What's up with that?

India's grand slam champions Sania Mirza and Rohan Bopanna have somehow got a time machine, worked some magic, and got themselves on the YOG startlist...:facepalm::thumbup::clap:

+1 for graphics actually showing the weight during the attempt :)

Next step would be to show the current standings plus number of attempts left (mostly in CJ) plus where succeeding in the current attempt would bring the athlete.
