  1. The qualification window for Judo opened at the end of June and so far there have been 8 qualifying events staged - 2 Grand Slams, 1 Grand Prix and 5 Continental Opens. Annoyingly, the IJF haven't got their act together for the last couple of months and they haven't been publishing the Olympic Ranking list on their website. I've gone through the results from 7 of the 8 qualifying events - I haven't included the results of Tahiti Oceania Open - to generate my own tracker of current qualification position. Couple of caveats: 1) This only covers the top 17 in the rankings (and France as hosts) - it doesn't take into account the continental quotas 2) Russia are included in the list despite the fact that they haven't been competing on the tour. At the moment, the rankings are heavily driven by the results from the Grand Slams and Russia were included in and performed pretty well at the Ulaanbaatar GS. I guess with the World Champs taking place in Uzbekistan, there is a possibility that Russian judokas may be there too. In terms of the team event, at the moment, by my reckoning the following nations would be qualified: It's still early days and a lot will change will change before the end of the qualification window

  3. Introducing text about No. 1c "WHERE CAN I GO TO?" map of our tour PILSEN (Plzeň) Population: 168 449 p. The 4th biggest town in The Czech Republic. The city was founded in 976 as a fortress of the Přemysl princes. It was considered one of the three most important trade centers of the Czech lands (during the 14th century). In the 19th century, industry developed intensively here, there was created automobile brand Škoda or the famous brewery with beer brand Pilsner Urquell. Pilsen is located on undulating terrain, where the Berounka river is formed by the confluence of four smaller rivers (Mže, Radbuza, Úhlava and Úslava). The city is overflowing with beautiful architecture, I will only introduce you to the very basics. You can't miss St. Bartholomew's Cathedral because it has the highest church tower in the Czech Republic (102.26 m). Cathedral is in the Gothic style and it's located in the center of the city. The Franciscan monastery was founded in 1300. It is built mainly in the Renaissance style. The Franciscans were representatives of a minority order under the Roman Catholic Church. The monastery was heavily damaged during the Hussite siege (1433). The Great Synagogue is also located in Pilsen, which is the largest building of this type in the Czech Republic and the third largest in the world (after the ones in Jerusalem and Budapest). Before the start of the Second World War, the Nazis tried to bomb the synagogue, but the action failed. In 2014, the modern New Theater building was opened, which was built according to the design of Portuguese architects. The building is located near the Cathedral of St. Bartholomew. Although Pilsen is a culturally rich city, no significant sporting events are held here. However, the best Czech football team - FC Viktoria Plzeň - is based here. OLOMOUC (Olomouc) Population: 99 564 p. The 6th biggest town in The Czech Republic. An university town with great history. The city lies on the Morava River in an elongated fertile valley. It is the center of the cultural area of Haná. As early as 1253, it was declared a royal trading town, but continuous settlement of the area appeared as early as the beginning of the 11th century. The city is known for its archbishopric and the second oldest Czech university (Palacký's University) is also located here. The historical core of the city is made up of a former fortress, the foundations of which are still preserved today. It is the largest fortress in the Czech Republic, which was in operation from the end of the 13th century until 1886. Most of the city's monuments can be found on the territory of the fortress. In the middle of Upper Square there is a town hall with an astronomical clock. While the current form of the town hall was created in 1474, the astronomical clock was damaged during the Second World War. The new clock was created in 1955 with the theme of socialist realism. On the same square we can also find the Column of the Holy Trinity - the only UNESCO monument in Olomouc. The column was built by a group of Czech Baroque sculptors. It is so large and tall that you can go inside, where is a small chapel. This unique baroque work is the largest column and at the same time the largest sculpture in the Czech Republic. České Budějovice (České Budějovice) Population: 93 083 p. The 7th biggest town in The Czech Republic. King Přemysl Otakar II. founded the city in 1265. The city firstly fulfilled the function of diplomatic meetings between the House of Luxembourg and other families, then due to religious changes, the city became the target of conflicts. Today, the city is very interesting, especially from the architectural side. The Black Tower is originally a guard and signal tower from the 16th century. Today it is open to the public, above the clock there is a walkway with a view of the entire city. The Salt House is a smaller building that dates back to the Renaissance. It served as a warehouse for grain and later salt. The Rabenstein tower is one of the two preserved fortification towers from the 14th century. The tower was primarily used as a warehouse for weapons and gunpowder, then as a prison. Today you will find an exhibition of armor and historical weapons there. A representative of modern architecture is, for example, the Piano administrative center, built between 2016 and 2018. Hradec Králové (Hradec Králové) Population: 90 679 p. The 8th biggest town in The Czech Republic and also residence of @Hipooo!!! This city was originally a royal city, but king Wenceslas II. dedicated it to the Czech queens. It functioned as the commercial center of Eastern Bohemia and today it is also an important cultural and university center. The city is nicknamed the Salon of the Republic because the city center is filled with many buildings from the 20th century. Today, the city is world famous for its Petrof brand pianos. The White Tower is very similar to the Black Tower in České Budejovice because it was designed by the same person. You can also climb the White Tower and observe the view not only of the city, but with good visibility you can also see the highest point of the Czech Republic - Sněžka, which is almost 60 km from the city. The Museum of Eastern Bohemia is an Art Nouveau brick building with various permanent and seasonal exhibitions. Adalbertinum is a social house built at the end of the 19th century in a style with elements of Neo-Renaissance and Neo-Baroque. The building is used for social and cultural activities. The Ulrich Square is a place lined with functionalist buildings. Today, the Regional Directorate of the Police and ČSOB bank are located here. The Hučák hydroelectric power plant is located in the city center on the Elbe River. This Art Nouveau building has been in operation since 1912 and is supposed to protect the city from floods. YES THIS YEAR'S TOISC 2022 IS HELD RIGHT HERE!! Pardubice (Pardubice) Population: 88 188 p. The 10th biggest town in The Czech Republic with an important railway junction. The first mention of the town dates back to 1295, but it flourished only in the 19th century, when the town was connected to the railway. Since then there has been intensive industrial development and the population has rapidly doubled. Nowadays, Pardubice is famous for Pardubice gingerbread and the Velká Pardubická horse race. The Pardubice Castle is located in the city center and dates back to the Renaissance in 1491. The Municipal Theater is an Art Nouveau building built at the beginning of the 20th century. It is probably the most important theater in Eastern Bohemia. Karlovy Vary (Karlovy Vary) Population: 45 605 p. The 22nd biggest town in The Czech Republic and the biggest czech spa town. Karlovy Vary is not one of the largest cities in the Czech Republic, but it is nevertheless a regional capital and is known worldwide for its spa treatments. The town was founded in 1370 and is located in a relatively steep valley of the Ohře river. The hottest spring Vřídlo (72 °C) is located there. It also hosts an international film festival every year. The list of monuments is really wide. There are four spa buildings in the city (two of which are still spas today) and five colonnades. Since the city has been visited by a number of important figures throughout history, there are a large number of monuments and statues. On the outskirts of the city there are architecturally interesting lookouts, e.g. Goethe's viewpoint. There are a large number of hotels in the city, almost every one of them is in magnificent buildings of art nouveau and romantic style.

  4. Introducing text about No. 1a "WHERE CAN I GO TO?" map of our tour In the beggining, I would like to introduce you nine czech towns. We are starting our pilgrimage of my homeland in Prague. PRAGUE (Praha) Population: 1 267 173 p. Capital and the biggest city of The Czech Republic. According to legend, Prague was founded in the 8th century by the czech princess Libuše and her husband Přemysl (the founder of the Přemysl dynasty). The legend has it that Libuše climbed of a rocky cliff above the Vltava river and prophersied: "I see a great city whose glory will touch the stars." She ordered a castle to the built on the spot and named the city Prague. In Prague, you can visit many monuments of different architectural styles. Prague Castle is considered the most valuable monument in Prague. Its construction began in the 9th century and ended only in the 20th century. It's a complex of various temples, churches, palaces and buildings in different styles, but the dominant one is the St. Vitus Church. Whole complex is also a UNESCO monument. Another prominent monument is the Charles Bridge, which is the oldest standing bridge over the Vltava River (opened in 1402). There are 30 baroque sculptures on the bridge and it is only for pedestrians. The Old Town Hall was founded in 1338, it is mainly known for its astronomical clock - the best-preserved medieval clock in the world. At noon, the astronomical clock is very often visited by tourists. In May 1945, the town hall caught fire (due to the fight between the insurgents and the German army) and part of the building was irretrievably destroyed. Today, only fragments of the original building can be seen. Vyšehrad is a castle and fortress on a rock above the Vltava River. It was the former residence of Czech kings. Part of the fortress is also a large cemetery where a large number of famous Czech personalities are buried. Other no less important monuments include the National Theatre, the Bethlehem Chapel (in which Jan Hus preached his ideas, for which he was later burned), the National Museum or the Rudolfinum concert palace. The most interesting modern building can be considered the Dancing House (the building is inspired by the interwar dancing couple Astair – Rogers).

  7. Meanwhile for some lighter political news: As some of you may remember, last year I took part in the local election here in Aarhus. I got 4th most personal votes among the candidates from my party who got three seats meaning that I was first in line if something were to happen. Now on monday I will get my chance as one of the three members of the council is taking a parental leave for the rest of the year! It's just three months but I'm extremely exited about it even though it will take a huge chunk of my spare time!

  9. In the previous edition of the contest it was discussed that multi jury members sometimes missed the boat before an entry was already chosen for their nation by another member of their national jury. In light of this, to allow fair time for multi jury members to see the thread and register their interest, we have decided that the song selection window won’t open until this Friday, September 23rd. There is also new guidance for multi juries in the rules about allowing some time as a form of courtesy to other member of their national jury to help select their song. 3. (b) In cases where 2 or more members from the same nation register to participate in the contest, they must work together by private message to agree upon the song and artist they wish to represent their nation in the contest. If one of those members already chose the song and artist for their nation before the other members registered for the contest, the newly registered members have the right to re-visit the selection made for their nation. All members from that nation should work together to agree on the chosen representative. This must be completed before the official song entry registration deadline. Any outstanding concerns can be brought to the attention of the organising committee by private message to seek a fair solution if needed. For these reasons, it is recommended that users from nations that often have multiple jury members to give a reasonable amount of time to allow their fellow jury members to register, as a form of courtesy for their fellow jury members. This may help to avoid situations where there is a disagreement in the chosen representative and reduce the amount of occasions when the chosen song / artist needs to be changed.

  16. This week’s World Championships definitely represents a big step forward for Team GB compared to the last few years and the disastrous Tokyo regatta. Given our relative strength in the sport, I was surprised to discover that this is the first time since 2016 that GB have won a gold medal at the rowing world championships outside of the para-rowing classes. Using this week to project Olympic qualification, Britain would have qualified in all 11 of the boat categories that they entered – an improvement of 2 compared to the WCs of 2019. The biggest step forward arguably came from Ukraine who would qualify 5 boats – compared to 0 in 2019 – which is no mean feat given everything that is going on in the country. New Zealand and Italy haven’t had a vintage year with New Zealand qualifying in just 4 events compared to 9 previously and Italy dropping from 8 to 4. Good to see Japan making progress post Tokyo. Ryuta Arakawa’s victory in the B-Final would be an Olympic qualifying spot and would possibly be the first time that a non-Chinese boat had qualified through the World Championships route. Still a year to go before the qualification regatta, but I think Team GB will be very happy with their performances this year and if they can get a good winter of injury free training, they could be on track for largest rowing squad since London 2012.

  21. Insane ending at the Talence Decastar heptathlon Dutch Emma Oosterwegel has 9 points to defend on Austrian Ivona Dadic in the 800m. Dadic attacks in the last lap and gets a gap of 1-2 seconds, which is enough. Oosterwegel pulls absolutely everything out of it though, and closes the gap back to a little under 0,7 seconds.....the result? I do not think I have seen that in the recent past

  28. So I have reviewed this case and read the notes included in your entry post. I see that this song has connections to Poland, Ukraine and Slovakia and you have highlighted that fact when presenting the entry. I am happy to allow some flexibility in this case as with old traditional folk songs, it's often hard to trace the first root of the song and they sometimes have connections to many nations as is this case. I contacted the other party and they said they are happy for Slovakia to enter the song. In fact there was not an objection to the entry, just a friendly note wondering if the song was eligible since it was a multi-national folk song. So now that I am happy that the other user is ok for Slovakia to enter the song then I am also fine with allowing flexibility in this case as there is no doubt Slovakia has a genuine connection to the song.

In both cases, the drop in quotas was predominantly due to their men dropping back in the overall rankings. As a result of their men falling back, both and are no longer projected to qualify for the team event. They are replaced by and With the World Champs and the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam taking place next month, we could potentially see some big changes in the rankings in the next few weeks.

  30. I've done an appraisal of the Irish performance here at this year's Rowing World Championships and it has been a hugely successful championships for our team. Overall picture: 1 gold and 2 bronze in Olympic class events 4 A-Finals in Olympic class events If we were to project forward 12 months, 5 boats would qualify to Paris 2024 if they replicate these results at the next World Championships while the men's four and men's double sculls finish just one and two places outside of the qualifying spots respectively. On evidence of this World Championships, if all these crews continue to progress, they all have a decent chance of making it to Paris 2024. The 2 crews who were furthest away from what would be a qualifying spot, the men's and women's single sculls, are both 20 years-old and making their senior championship debuts so there is still hope we can make sufficient progress in the next 12-18 months. I can't wait to see what the men's four do over the next season, 8th place on their senior debut was a phenomenal result for this young crew. I am hoping they can make it into the qualifying spots at next year's worlds.

  31. We need a bit of perspective here. At the "disastrous Tokyo regatta" GB had nine top four finishes in the fourteen Olympic classes compared with eight top three finishes this year. The truth is there is often only a small gap between what is regarded as success and failure. GB's performance was disappointing last year but not the disaster it has been painted in some quarters and congratulations to them for turning things around so quickly. Congratulations too to the Netherlands on a series of great performances across a range of boats. Also pleased to see a resurgence in Romanian rowing with the promise of more to come after they topped the medal table at this month's European U23 championships. Great performances too from Ireland who are improving and growing and Ukraine given the circumstances in which they have had to prepare and perform. Disappointing from Australia - no golds, when did that last happen - New Zealand, the US and Canada. How much of this is down to lost competition after Covid? And finally Germany with an outstanding men's sculler and then pretty much nothing. No German men's eight in the A final 🙄. What has happened to German rowing? Overall an interesting regatta with some great racing. The next two years are going to be fascinating.

  32. Introducing text about No. 1b "WHERE CAN I GO TO?" map of our tour BRNO (Brno) Population: 378 424 p. Main center of Moravia and the 2nd biggest town in The Czech Republic. The first written mention of Brno comes from the year 1091 (from the oldest Czech chronicle - Kosmo's Chronicle). The origin of the city was mainly connected with the minting of coins. Probably the biggest landmark is Špilberk Castle. It is located on a hill on the west side of the city. The castle was founded in the second half of the 13th century by the then king Přemysl Otakar II. In the 18th century, part of the space was transformed into a dreaded prison. Today, the castle is home to the Brno City Museum. In the city center is located the Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul. Construction began in the 11th century and was completed in 1908. The outline of the cathedral is shown on a Czech 10 CZK coin. Last but not least, it is good to mention the only UNESCO monument in Brno – Villa Tugendhat. This building was built between 1929 and 1930. The villa is in a functionalist style. From the point of view of sport, Moto GP Brno was recently held here, Fed Cup matches were also often held here. OSTRAVA (Ostrava) Population: 280 718 p. The 3rd biggest town in The Czech Republic located on the border of Moravia and Silesia. The first settlement here was in the mid-13th century. The city was located on an important trade route, after the siege of the Swedes (1621–1645) the importance of the city declined. The great prosperity of the city was during the 18th century, when extensive deposits of high-quality black coal appeared here. The city thus began to grow rapidly. Today, the area around Ostrava is one of the most polluted areas of the Czech Republic, which is a consequence of intensive coal mining. Nowadays, most of the mines have already closed. The most famous monuments of Ostrava are of a technical nature. The mining area of Vítkovice is today often visited by tourists. Today, the former ironworks is one of the cultural destinations, there are regularly held music festivals (e.g. Colors of Ostrava), as well as sports events (a beach volleyball tournament within the Elite 16 circuit). To the west of the center of Ostrava, a large district was built in the style of socialist realism during the 20th century. Its area is over 13 square kilometers and its name is Poruba. Other international events held in Ostrava: Golden Spike (an athletic meeting), WTA tournament series 500, co-hosting of the Ice Hockey World Championships (2004, 2015, 2024). To be honest, I don't like towns Prague, Brno and Ostrava Next towns (on my opinion) are cleaner and more beautiful and their land is more interesting.

  37. History was made today as Sofia Raffaeli became the first Italian to win gold in the women’s individual all-around at the Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships. The event also doubled as the first Olympic qualification opportunity for the rhythmic individual all-around event where the top three athletes qualified their nation to the games. The 2022 Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships are currently being held in Sofia, Bulgaria from September 14th to September 18th 2022. The qualification round was topped by Italy’s Sofia Raffaeli whom finished with a total of 98.850. In the qualification round only the three best apparatus scores are counted towards your overall total. Raffaeli was the top performer in the ball and ribbon. The top performer in the hoop and clubs was Bulgaria’s Stiliana Nikolova whom finished just behind Raffaeli with a score of 98.200. The pair had an over 2-point gap ahead of third place Darja Varfolomeev of Germany. In the final, all four apparatus performances are counted towards your total, meaning there was no room for error. The top three from the qualification round continue to be the best performers. After the first two rotations Varfolomeev held a 1.050 lead over Nikolova and Raffaeli. However, a poor ribbon by Nikolova essentially knocked her out of contention for gold leaving Varfolomeev and Raffaeli to battle for gold in the final rotation. Varfolomeev held a 1.000 lead and had to compete in the ribbon while Raffaeli’s final apparatus was the ball. Varfolomeev had a 32.450 performance in the ribbon, but Raffaeli was able to counter with a 34.250 on the ball, allowing her to win gold with a total score of 133.250. She finished first in the hoop, ball and ribbon. Varfolomeev finished in the silver medal position by winning the clubs and finishing with a total score of 132.450. Bronze and the final Olympic quota went to Nikolova who finished with a total of 128.800.

She also added many apparatus medals to her collection including three golds (hoop, ball & ribbon) and one bronze (clubs) at this World Championships. The next Olympic opportunity for nations to qualify in this event will be at the 2023 World Championships.

  40. The same as "Right wing = Evil incarnate." But we can't let loose of the narrative, am i right. Can't wait to see the doom and gloom, that will happen in Sweden and their drop in the World Development and Living standard position from 4th to 6th. I don't know how people would be able to live there now.

  42. Well, I predicted Poland would win as I guess most did, but I did also predict in some other thread that Italy would win gold in Paris with this strong new generation. Maybe their time has come even sooner than I thought.

  44. Team Slovakia UPDATED AS OF 28.09.2022 1 (0+1) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SHOOTING 1 (0+1) WOMEN'S TBD (W TRAP) *Quota won by Zuzana Rehák-Štefečeková Officially aboard officially qualified for Paris, ehm.. Chateauroux 2024. Zuzana Rehák-Štefečeková, reigning Olympic W Trap champion, is the first Slovak athlete to qualify for the "Jeux Olympique de Paris", Even if the quota is for the NOC, it would be a major surprise, if baring injury or any other disaster, will be used by anyone else than Zuzana Rehák-Štefečeková. It will be her 4th Olympic appearance, Fun fact all her 3 previous Olympic experiences ended by a Olympic medal. In Beijing 2008 she ended her Olympic debut by winning a Silver medal, a Silver she won again 4 years later in London 2012, She also did qualify to Rio 2016 but declined the participation due pregnancy , As a mom now, she returned to sport and did qualify to Tokyo 2020(1) where as you know won the sole Slovak gold medal at the Japanese Olympics.
