  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  7. Same thing happened to her as happens to all the British female riders. They get signed up to a big team & end up as domestiques for van Vleuten, Vos, Vollering (and that’s just the Vs) or other big names.

  8. Time for presentation of Serbian TOISC song 2022 is come. This time I will try with Serbian-Italian colaboration who become one of the biggest hits of our music industry. Eternal Love by Madam Piano ft. Franco Masi Qual è il segreto Che attraversa il cielo e il mare Quale cantena unisce gli uomini Malgrado tutto Si oltrepassano i pensieri Destini e orizzonti senza limiti Što li mi te nema Što li mi te nema, joj Moja ružo Daleko si za me Što li mi te nema, joj Look far up in the sky You'll see the light that shines Eternal love will never die Hold me and we could fly Floating just you and I New life will reach you if you try Look far up in the sky You'll see the light that shines Eternal love will never die Hold me and we could fly Floating just you and I New life will reach you if you try Qual è l'arcano Quale misteriosa luce Irradia le anime da secoli E l'uomo ombra È in un lago di paure Che muta in desolanti lacrime Što li mi te nema Što li mi te nema, joj Moja ružo Još te dusa sneva Što li mi te nema, joj Look far up in the sky You'll see the light that shines Eternal love will never die Hold me and we could fly Floating just you and I New life will reach you if you try Look far up in the sky You'll see the light that shines Eternal love will never die Hold me and we could fly Floating just you and I New life will reach you if you try

  10. You can probably scroll down and work your way up here: https://www.procyclingstats.com/race/world-championship/2022/result/live/livestats Although not a whole lot happened in terms of the race yet (Pogacar had a bit of an attack with 200k to go and split the peloton in two, but that was undone a while later), and even now the main story is still the Van der Poel saga

  11. World Cup Calendar: Stavanger - 11-13 November Heerenveen - 18-20 November Calgary - 9-11 December Calgary - 16-18 December Tomaszow Mazowiecki - 10-12 February Tomaszow Mazowiecki - 17-19 February Two double headers, which we haven't seen in a while, if at all? And nothing in Asia or on the fast tracks of Inzell or Salt Lake City. Major championships this year: Quebec - Four Continents Championships - 2-4 December (right before the World Cups in Calgary) Hamar - European Championships - 6-8 January Heerenveen - World Championships - 2-5 March Junior World Cup Calendar: Seinäjoki - 26-27 November (outdoor) Seinäjoki - 3-4 December (outdoor) Inzell - 4-5 February The Junior World Championships will be from 10-12 February in Inzell, together with the final senior World Cup event. I'm wondering if Jordan Stolz will compete in the senior World Cup finals where he could make good money if he managed to continue his strong form from last season, or in Inzell to compete for some world titles in his final year as a junior.

  13. 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.

    Povijesni uspjeh na prvenstvu Balkana u dresuri. Prava žetva od četiri zlata. Po dva za Pavičić, kojoj je ovo bio prvi nastup na nekom prvenstvu za HR, i po dva za Kayu Probst, koja trenira u Engleskoj i baš od ove sezone počinje postizati zapažene rezultate (recimo top 25 na Europskom juniorskom prvenstvu ranije ovog ljeta). https://www.eurodressage.com/2022/09/21/pavicic-makes-first-championship-start-croatia-winning-one-2022-balkan-dressage

  17. 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
