  1. Austria Archery: 1 quota Elisabeth Straka performed quite well at the last Europeans, finishing in fourth place. She is a candidate for Paris. Artistic swimming: 2 quotas The Alexandri sisters will qualify for sure Athletics: 7 quotas Discus thrower Lukas Weißhaidinger (bronze medalist 2021), Susanne Walli (400 metres), Ivona Dadic (heptathlon), Victoria Hudson (javelin) and maybe 2-3 others. Badminton: 1 quota Luka Wraber could go for his second Olympics. He is the only one with realistic chances. Basketball: 0 quotas impossible Basketball - 3x3: 0 quotas Both men and women have good results on the World Tour, but qualifying for Paris will still be tough. Beach Volleyball: 2 quotas After missing the Tokyo Games, there could be a male duo in Paris. Boxing: 1 quota Ahmed Hagag (superheavyweight) won Bronze at the Europeans this year. He could be the first Austrian boxer at the Olympics since 1988. Breaking: 0 quotas There is a breaking community in Austria, but I doubt that any athlete will qualify for Paris. Canoeing - Slalom: 3 quota There is a high chance, Austria will be represented in K1 (men and women) and C1 (women) Canoeing - Sprint: 3 quotas Timon Maurer (K1) and the women in K2 Cycling - BMX: 0 quotas impossible Cycling - Mountain Bike: 3 quotas Mona Mitterwallner and Laura Stigger (they also have medal chances) as well as one male athlete Cycling - Road: 5 quotas In Tokyo, 4 men were qualified, I expect this number for Paris again. One woman will qualify, but will it be Anna Kiesenhofer? Cycling - Track: 0 quotas Austrian doesn't even have a bike track any more... Diving: 1 quota Alexander Hart almost qualified for Tokyo, he will do it in 2024. Equestrian: 5 quotas A team could qualify in dressage, Max Kühner in show jumping and Lea Siegl in eventing Fencing: 0 quotas As the Austrian teams do not play any role internationally, it will be hard to achieve any quotas. Josef Mahringer (men's epee) ist one of the candidates for the zonal tournament in spring 2024. Field Hockey: 0 quotas The men's team will compete at the qualification tournament, but I they will probably not be able to secure a spot. Football: 0 quotas Impossible for the men, almost impossible for the women. Golf: 4 quotas 2 men (Straka and Schwab again?) and 2 women (Wolf, Schober and Spitz are the candidates) Gymnastics - Artistic: 2 quotas The teams have improved, they are qualified for the Worlds in October. Nevertheless, they are probably not good enough to make it to the Olympics. But one female athlete (all-around) and Vinzenz Höck (rings) could qualifiy. Gymnastics - Rhythmic: 0 quotas A quota would be a surprise. Gymnastics - Trampoline: 0 quotas Benny Wizani has chances, but is not among the favorites for a quota. Handball: 0 quotas Austrian teams regularly compete at major events, but are not among the Top 5 teams in Europe. Judo: 6 quotas In Tokyo we had 6 athletes, 2 of them won a medal. There will be a similar amount of athletes in Paris. Modern Pentathlon: 1 quota Gustav Gustenau is the only one who can do that. Rowing: 3 quotas Magdalena Lobnig (single sculls) and one double scull will qualify. Rugby sevens: 0 quotas impossible Sailing: 8 athletes Alina Kornelli and Valentin Bontus in Formula Kite, Lara Vadlau/Lukas Mähr (470), Tanja Frank/Lukas Haberl (Nacra17) and Benjamin Bildstein/David Hussl (49er) are the ones that can make it. Shooting: 3 quotas Sylvia Steiner (pistol) and Martin Strempfl (rifle) again; one more female athlete (rifle) Skateboarding: 0 quotas Julia Brückler will not qualify again Sport climbing: 3 quotas 1 male in speed (probably Tobias Plangger), 1 male in comined (Jakob Schubert), 1 female in combined (Jessica Pilz). Surfing: 0 quotas impossible Swimming: 8 athletes There were 7 Austrian swimmers in Tokyo, they are all on a good way. Table Tennis: 6 quotas I hope, men and women will qualify their teams. Taekwondo: 0 quotas Marlene Jahl has only a small chance. Tennis: 3 quotas 1 male will qualify in singles, also 1 male double. Triathlon: 4 quotas Same as in Tokyo Volleyball: 0 quotas impossible Water polo: 0 quotas Completely impossible Weightlifting: 2 quotas Sarah Fischer and Sargis Martirosijan Wrestling: 2 quotas Daniel Gastl and Martina Kuenz Prediction: 89 quotas => That would be 14 more than in Tokyo

  4. The Nanjing Indoor World Championships of 2021 2023 are now scheduled for 2025. https://worldathletics.org/news/press-releases/world-indoor-championships-nanjing-2023-postponed The 2024 World Indoors in Glasgow will therefore be the next WIC. China are also scheduled to host in 2023 the World Relays, two Diamond Leagues & the Asian Games, which are also doubtful.

    Srebro za Urosa Zivanovica na 100m prsno na juniorskom SP Martina Bukvic je bila 4. na 50m prsno! Treba napomenuti da ne ucestvuje par zemalja kao sto su Amerika, Australija, Kina ali opet lep rezultat

  11. Had a rich friend who visited Belgium and she wanted to tell that experience in English class about a month later. But she didn't even know (and probably remember) the city or landmark names except "a pissing statue". I asked her "Did you visit a steel hexagonal-ish building and a park with big arch?" and she said "Yes". From there, I helped her to compose the writing and prevented her from submitting a medieval traveler review of foreign countries

  12. Irish team has been underwhelming recently. It's almost worrisome that McCarthy & Fallulah got named, given Fallulah's very poor show jumping record... Saying that, Joseph Murphy has had an excellent season and should be the one to watch. Japan has a strong team. They placed 4th in 2018 so it's a familiar territory to them. Switzerland has been improving season after season ever since they hired Andrew Nicholson to be their national coach. This is their most promising team ever, plus they got great history in Pratoni as both their Nations Cup victories ever have happened right here.

  13. The Slovakian luck run out in R2, both Kuzmova and Schmiedlova are out but they were clear underdogs vs Rogers & Zhang Shuai. The in-form Liudmila Samsonova and Caroline Garcia are through to R3 (the former taking out last year's finalist Leylah Fernandez).

  14. If I had to pick ONE opponent from the top 8 for our team to play in this match (other than Netherlands) I'd have picked Serbia... but playing like they have played so far, with the ridiculous number of errors they give away every game, it'll be impossible to win. So, I hope they take this full week before the match to find some spirit within them.

  16. Quick survey of tourists in Prague turned in total disaster Seriously, how you can go visit a country without having at least a basic information about it... Name any other Czech city ?: "uhm...Bratislava" and the kid who literally said he did not even want to come here, but his parents forced him to go (05:15)

  17. And still there are people who might see this as mere practice or a warmup for the Swiss Ultra In that event, the 'main event' is a tenfold Iron Man distance triathlon, non-stop (other than moments where you decide to take a break of course). So yes, that is 38km swimming, 1800km cycling and 422km running. This year's edition finished last week I believe
