Winter Universiade 2017

Recommended Posts

Three days and three hours until the opening ceremony and not even a sign of any athletes' profiles or any sort of somewhat detailed information on the official website...this is getting rather shameful...

Last Winter Universiade we had 7 athletes....not very much a coincidence that that was the Universiade with no speed skating :p 

 

Now we have 7 in other sports and 13 in speed skating :d 

 

Like usual though, we're not exactly strong in university sports, even in speed skating. Even from watching national championships on TV, I only know Bart Vreugdenhil, who was 18th at the Dutch Allround Championships last weekend (and that's without at least 2-3 skaters who would easily have been ahead of that). Gerritsen was 17th there. Van Oosten was 7th in the Dutch Sprint Championships last weekend where most top athletes were participating, so he might be able to do something good....although the presence of Roman Krech is making gold nearly impossible and I guess the Polish will have some strong names as well.

Still nothing about athlete's profiles, but at least the well-known results lay-out for multi-events can finally be found on FISU's website:

Finally, all athletes have been entered in the system apparently :d

I'm guessing the profiles will be filled out a bit more, since the athletes were asked to answer some questions like "What do you know about Kazakhstan"? :p

I'm guessing that Borat might be the popular answer. :p

I know one person who did not fill in Borat but who did mention something about Kazakhstan being the birth place of apple trees after a certain someone mentioned it to her :evil:

 

I also suggested "I know Kazakhstan lost all four weightlifting gold medals of the 2012 Olympics due to doping and their biggest ever sports hero, Ilya Ilyin, lost two gold medals because of it", but thought the organizing committee might not like the sense of humour :p

Well, "Kazakhstan No. 1" coach is also something to be mentioned. :d
