  1. No actually we will resume next Tuesday. Sorry, and an apology to each of you. Had another fight with the internet company, as my connection is unstable since Sunday, with my main efforts being completing my duties while I'm still on home office duty and until me and my coworkers can safely return to our physical location, following sanitization after a collaborator was infeceted with COVID. Today is the first day in which, I have been able to stay online for more than two hours straight. As for the schedule, it will be moved to next week. Expect your votin

  2. day #14...slowly coming towards the end... so, my "Olympic depression" would normally be at its climax, entering the final weekend... however, my "top event(s) of the day" are surely Wrestling (the great day of Frank Chamizo...will he finally become Olympic Champion?) and Karate (the great day of Luigi Busà...such a career can't finish without an Olympic Gold medal, he truly deserves it)... also not to be missed: women's Beach Volley and women's Field Hockey Gold Medal matches, Athletics (the whole program, especially the men's 50km and the women's 20km Race

  3. Friday Day 14 I would defenitely watch athletics - whole evening session is very interesting for me. W 1500 (with Sofia Ennaoui?), W Javelin (Maria Andrejczyk?) and 4x100 relays above all. Beach Volleyball W final Boxing M Heavyweight final W football final W handball semis Some track cycling, sports climbing and canoeing (can sb explain to me why they got rid of M K4 1000 and there is M K4 500 instead? This is such a stupid decision. K4 1000 was the best event, full of tactics. And M K4 500 is much less entertaing, this r

  4. I really don't pay attention to ceremonies. I do watch them, but they are largely forgotten when the competition starts.

  5. Hockey finals today, but above all the 4x100 relays! And from a Dutch point of view the Madison at Track Cycling. Kirsten Wild and Amy Pieters became world champion this year, but both are of a respectable age already. I'm afraid 2021 will come too late for them. Wild thought she was already retired by now ...

  8. Day 15 SuperHiperSaturday I would like to watch so many things. This is much too much to watch in one day. There were some less entertaining days before but this Saturday really a lot would be going on at the same time. Impossible to see it all live as it would happen. I would have to make my priorities and watch some replays later. Anyway, things to do are: M volleyball final - i hope it would be Poland vs USA. And i hope it would be a really good match. Athletics - firstly W marathon (i wish they could move it back to Tokyo) And The who

    Anyone else feeling like they're lost on Totallympics lately? I generally use it via the Unread Topics section, but it's just so full I generally see that and think "meh, forget it" and close Totallympics after a few seconds

  10. In german it’s „Kapstadt“. Hungary is both too poor and too small to host the Olympics, Spain is only too poor (in the sense of „Spain can’t afford to host the Olympics if we‘re being honest“). In my opinion only very few countries should be allowed to host the Olympics (given the insane costs of hosting them): Summer: USA, GB, China, Japan, France, Germany, South Korea, maybe Netherlands, Australia, Canada Winter: Norway, Sweden, USA, China, Japan, France, Germany, South Korea, Canada, Switzerland, Austria, Finland, maybe Russia On day 14 I would watch: Beach voll

  17. I usually don't watch the full opening ceremonies, I'm not an artistic soul by any means so I quickly forget about them even if I see some extra action. I really only watch the nations' parade and the lightning of the cauldron

  18. Great news is that the very truncated World Athletics Continental Tour starts again next week. As you may remember - if you have very long memories - this is the 2nd level of World Athletics, but normally includes some very good meets like Hengelo, Berlin, Madrid etc. https://www.worldathletics.org/competitions/world-athletics-continental-tour/calendar/2020 The GOLD level meets will all be live on YouTube. So first one is at Turku on Wednesday. And there will also be some Diamond League meets, starting in Monaco in one week https://www.worldathletics.org/competi

  19. Bah, Humbug. No mass dancing. No light shows. No allegorical representations of the Sun Goddess being born from the depths of the ocean. London 1948. The Austerity Olympics. Military band marches, plays some tunes. Athlete’s Parade. King declares Games open. Olympic flame lit. Everyone leaves the Stadium & queues for the bus home.

  20. Sochi is miles ahead than the others obviously... Pyeongchang for me is Incheon 2014 Deluxe, their mix of traditional and modern stuff wasn't really good thus making it not super amazing. Vancouver did not have a particular highlight for me, I remembered it solely because I watched several times. Turin - Ferrari Salt Lake - "On behalf of the proud, determined, and grateful nation I hereby grant you a graceful throw of a shoe from my left hand"

  21. Just because there’s a little chatter about this on the 2016 Replays Thread, I thought I’d remind everyone about this thread. @Vojthas and myself had a conversation about ceremonies in the 2000s and couple weeks back, and noticed some of y’all informally ranking ceremonies from the 2000s in the Replays thread. So here’s my rankings of 2000s from the perspective of someone very into the artistic segments, cultural significance, and politics of opening ceremonies: Summer: 1. Rio/London - This is a dead tie for me. London sold the UK as a cultural brand, while Rio ga

  23. It’s official! The American Song Contest is coming in 2021! Rules will be similar to Eurovision, format will be different. The American Song Contest will be held in a one-v-one knockout elimination format (March Madness style as it has been labeled).

  24. Again day full of attractions: - Athletics - 50km Race Walking that's biggest for me (probably for the last time ), except that Men's 4x400m heats, Women's Race Walking, Women's Javelin nad 400m - Basketball - women's SF - Beach Volleyball - women's medal matches - Boxing - only five fights but still... - Canoe Sprint - especially Men's C1 1000m and both fours - Track Cycling - Women's Madison looks most interesting, except that finals of Men's Sprint and first day of Women's Sprint - Football - women's final - Handball - women's SF - Field Hockey

  25. Looks like tomorrow is the day for both the women's football and field hockey finals, I hope we get to see Dutch teams in both of those! And then there's track cycling and athletics for the rest of the day and hopefully a semifinal in handball too. With some beach volleyball and sports climbing sprinkled in out of interest moreso than Dutch contenders.
