  1. Long story short: she was on the way from Austria (where she had been in quarantine until today) to Munich, to get tested three times there in the coming five days, starting today. Somewhere along the Austrian/Italian border (Vintl), the transfer we had booked for her (a minivan, her as only passenger) had an accident, a bad one, one might say. Sadly the driver didn't make it, and considering they hit a truck head-on, Bruna sitting in the back (to keep some distance) quite simply saved her life. Transported to the hospital by helicopter. Broken arm, two broken feet and an unknown number of broken ribs seems to be the damage. Which, considering the gravity of the accident, is barely short of a miracle. As for me, I'm at home in the Netherlands, which is where we are trying to get her as soon as possible (when medically allowed, of course). It has been a long day of back and forth contact with insurance and Brazilian federation and everything to see what can be done. But, again, the main thing is she's still with us.

  4. She isn't really able to answer anything here since she can only use one hand for now. Fine for voice messages, not so much for typing. But she asked me to write here that she had a quick look and is very very grateful for all the wishes and messages here! So, thank you all on Bruna's behalf!

  5. I would like to thank everyone who made this contest possible. @Sindo for maintaining the site, @OlympicIRL for their guidance, @dcro for their contributions, @vinipereira for the logo of the contest, @mrv86 for the draw tables. @hckošice @Cinnamon Bun @Cobi @Wumo for their participation in the draw. And of course I would like to thank all the jury members who participated in the contest. And as the jury member of Hungary I would also like to thank everyone who voted for our song. I never expected this song to reach the 6th place, that was the most surprising result of the contest for me. Thank you!

  6. The Official Logo Dear users of Totallympics, the wait for the official logo of the 2022 Totallympics Annual International Song Contest is finally over, just in time for the draw! The logo is the work of our great @vinipereira, thank you so much for your contribution! The inspiration behind the logo were Hungarian folk motives which very often feature birds and flowers. And there was one particular interpretation of our folk motives that we used as the main inspiration. It's the title card of a well-known Hungarian animated TV series which has adapted 100 Hungarian folk tales over the last 4 decades. The melody of this TV intro is firmly embedded in my head, it was probably one of the first things I saw on TV when I was a child, and the same must be true for many Hungarians. Both its design and melody are timeless and represent our traditions.

  7. Tokyo 2020 is coming to an end, I hope you enjoyed following them here in Totallympics! I know not everything was perfect, there were some nightly downs of the forum in the first days and some posts had to be deleted because of abusive behavior by certain users, but I think this is something will always happen on a populated forum. As always, since tomorrow the focus will switch to Beijing 2022 and Paris 2024, we want to be the first to start following the 2024 Olympic qualifications so I hope after some days of Olympic detoxification you will all be back on Totallympics and follow sports with us! In the next weeks, there will be some little forum’s software updates which I postponed to avoid problems just before the Olympics, and we will also move on a stronger server, to avoid forum’s down during traffic’s peaks. I will also have lots of hosting space, so I have thought I can create national sub-domain forums for the nations with lots of users who think their national thread is not enough. For example, I will try to launch https://italia.totallympics.com/, where Italian fans will have their own forum, in the same format of Totallympics but only for Italian fans who can write in Italian. This will allow the Italian community to grow independently in their own forum, and I’m sure Italians who want to interact with the rest of the world will keep using the “international” Totallympics as they are doing now. The great advantage comparing to the National threads is that everything would be more organized, with sections, threads etc., just like here. I chose the Italian example because I know how and where to search for Italian fans interested in the forum. But if any of you is interested I can create other nations’ sub-domains. I will setup the forum in the same format of Totallympics, then of course I would need one person (or more) who will take care of that forum and its development. You don’t need to be skilled with information technology because dealing with the forum is really simple and I could help you, the “difficult” part would be to start a community from scratch. That’s why I am mostly thinking to nations which already have lots of users on Totallympics, but if you are a country’s single member and you know how to bring your country’s people on the national forum once this will be ready, then we can obviously give a try. I think for many countries there are Facebook groups of Olympic fans or some small Olympic forums/websites here and there, and if you can potentially “move” them on Totallympics national forum then it would be easy for your community to grow, and then more people would start joining the forum when they find it on google. It will not be easy, but it might be an exciting experience and not a lot of your time is needed for that. So if any of you is interested to be the “community manager” (this word might be exaggerated, linkedin style ) of her/his country, feel free to contact me anytime via private message and we will start talking about the plan. I will not be able to pay you for that role, but of course I would give you the hosting for free so you would have no expenses of any sort, and you can always count on my help. Thank you everyone who contributed here during Tokyo 2020 and get ready for the next Olympic cycle!

  9. As I said during the first session, I came to this edition without any expectations. The most popular songs in Spain right now are not very interesting and I wanted to show something different of the Spanish culture. After searching for a while, I decided to go with a folk song in Galician, one of our three official regional languages (Galego, Català and Euskera/Basque) that was very close to represent us in Eurovision this year. To be honest I did not think this kind of music would be that appealing, but I am very happy with the result. I want to say thanks to all the jurors who voted for Tanxugueiras and also to everybody who took their time to listen to Terra: 12 - @kungshamra71 12 - @IoNuTzZ 12 - @Olympian1010 @dezbee2008 12 - @Illya 11 - @NikolaB 10 - @konig 10 - @Wanderer 10 - @justony 9 - @rybak 9 - @Belle 9 - @amen09 4 - @titicow 9 - @Federer91 5 - @Griff88 5 - @Hipooo 5 - @Ionoutz24 4 - @Benolympique @Bohemia 4 - @Fly_like_a_don 4 - @Ruslan 3 - @mrv86 1 - @Finnator123 And big thanks to our host @Vektor for organizing everything so perfectly. This was only my sixth edition participating but I can already imagine how difficult it has to be to prepare such enormous amount of templates, information, draws... I know I will not be as good host as you have been these weeks, but I can promise I will do my best to host the next edition... WELCOME TO ESPAÑA 2023! I can't forget to congratulate both @Cinnamon Bun@Quasit and @OlympicIRL for their medals. I have no idea how Tanxugueiras have finished above Ed Sheeran, but I guess that's the magic of this contest. And with this victory my next goal will be getting some points from and . After 6 editions these are the only 2 countries that I have never managed to receive a single point from (excluding Norway and those who only participated once) .

  11. So, bit of an update: Bruna had surgery on both her left arm and left foot today, which took roughly 2,5 hours. Apart from a minor complication regarding her CO2 levels, which they got under control, it seems as though it all went well. Most likely she will be allowed to leave on Wednesday, which probably means she'll be transported home and arrive here on Thursday somewhere at the end of the day. Someone from the Brazilian federation will be with her from tomorrow on and probably travel in the ambulance transport with her as well, something we are very grateful for (due to a quarantaine situation at home, we simply can't go there at the moment). Once she is here, the long, long road to recovery will start. That's probably going to be a matter of months, at least, but yeah...we've got time.

  13. Hello, everyone! First of all, congrats to all our Finnish users for a hockey win! I would like to be in Helsinki now!!! And secondly, looks like we have our polls-winner!!! Provisional rankings show that @Wumo won the whole thing. And that was pretty close - looks like the decisive move was predicting that Victoria Carl will finish 12th in 30k cross-country race. Man, how the fuck did you know that??? Congratulations @Wumo There is a bottle of best Polish vodka prepared for you. Well-frozen. You'll find it in the post. Enjoy! Congrats for @mrv86 and @phelps for the other medals. That was so close!!! Don't give up, maybe next season... But I would like to say it loudly that @Wumo is such a deserved winner here. I have written this earlier in these polls series, but I will repeat it now - I would like to THANK YOU for all the efforts in your prediction contests. I can see now how much time and work it takes, so big respect for you from me and all of us, I guess!!! I think there may be some minor mistakes in the peleton scores but a winner looks to be certain. If you find any mistakes, please let me know. You will find the provisional rankings table attached to this post in a doc file. I have promised a Super-Sunday for my family today, after all these 16 days in Beijing, so the final rankings with all these fancy flags&tags will be published rather later than sooner, forgive me that. It will be here altogether with all the behind-the-scenes reports, special honorary awards and doping violations summary. Thank you all for your participations, that was FUN!!! Have a good Sunday, everyone... and now let's only hope there won't be a war next week or later on... i am just too afraid to watch non-sporting news these days... how the fuck could we all get that close to this shit? so everyone, stay safe, please... Bye! 22.02.20 final poll.docx

  14. Hey! Thanks for asking 😊 I am doing well, recovering a little day by day. Arm, ribs, abdomen, shoulder and lungs still hurt but much less nowadays (painkillers are making their miracle everyday) My foot is the main thing for now, but the doctor said we will have to be patient with it, which means it will take time to recover. Not much about the broken bones, but the wounds (it still looks like a zombie foot 😬😅). But it will get better I need to keep it high as much as possible during the day and do not put any pressure on it. So, wheelchair it recovers. For sure, no trainings for me in a soon future. First goal is to get on my feet again. Watching the Olympics was painful in some moments (including today) but mostly I enjoyed seeing some friends doing well. I enjoy this reply to thank everyone who sent their good wishes since the accident happened. I wasn't able to reply at the moment, but I read everything and @heywoodu kept me updated too. Thank you so much for all kindness 💙💙💙 I am a totallyimpian not Olympian yet, but the word "yet" will drop off in 2026 😉 thank you all!

  19. Cleared all my covid tests and security checks, I'll be going to the Opening Ceremonies tonight! Long story short, I know someone who knows someone and our big group got whittled down for many reasons, but I finally was one of a few to make the final cut. Will also go to another event in a week and the Closing Ceremonies too (and Paralympic Ceremonies). It'll be a long day and we're not allowed to bring battery packs in, so I hope my phone lasts with all the pictures and updates. Didn't want to jinx anything by celebrating too early, especially in these covid times. So excited!

  26. I offer my congratulations to @Cobi on Spain's win and to @OlympicIRL, @Cinnamon Bun and @Quasit on their medals. I want to thank everyone who voted for Greece, I'm glad you liked our song. Also, thank you to our teammates in Gyor Rivers who helped us earn a 4th place in the team event. We were close to a medal there, but 4th place is a great result. And of course, a huge thank thank you to @Vektor who hosted a great contest throughout. This is how I voted. I can say I voted for all top three songs, but as I was the only one in our jury who voted for Spain and Ireland, my points were not enough for these songs to receive any points from Greece. Great Britain got our 12 points by earning a total of 21 points, 7 per jury member and that's despite @Makedonas didn't give any points. 9 points, 3 per jury member were needed for a 12th place finish. 1st 12 pts New Zealand 2nd 11 pts Great Britain 3rd 10 pts France 4th 9 pts Czech Republic 5th 8 pts Ireland 6th 7 pts Poland 7th 6 pts Germany 8th 5 pts Spain 9th 4 pts Sweden 10th 3 pts Denmark 11th 2 pts Italy 12th 1 pts Brazil Res1 Malta Res2 Croatia Res3 Romania

Welcome to the Opening Ceremony of the 2022 Totallympics Annual International Song Contest! Welcome to Hungary! I know what you are thinking. Mr. DiCaprio did this one for free, I won't have to pay him $10 million dollars. But the fireworks were expensive, so... yep, time to take that second mortgage!

  35. Spain 12 My first TISC participation was the 2019 Open contest and guess what TISC meme originated from that contest? I guess the prophecy was right, Spain had to win the contest which was hosted by me. Joking aside, Spain collected 160 points, 4 x 12 pts from , 1 x 11 pts from and 3 x 10 pts from . There are no questions about which was the strongest nation of this contest. I would like to congratulate @Cobi, Spain was long overdue for this kind of success in TISC. And now we shall end the contest the way every song contest should, with the winning song. Goodbye 2022 Annual Contest, Goodbye Hungary, see ya at the next contest, hopefully in Czech Republic, and then next year in Spain! Tanxugueiras - TERRA

  37. Goodbye Beijing - Hell.o Hungary Well, this is it. The competitions are over, the Olympic Games is ending once again. But don't be sad, we got another event to look forward to! The Totallympics Annual International Song Contest is here to cure your post-Olympic melancholy, so let's have some fun again, this time, for the first time ever, in Hungary! I am happy to announce that we have a host city! You must have heard of this beautiful Hungarian city if you follow handball or canoe sprint. It's the capital of Hungarian canoeing and has hosted the Canoe Sprint World Championships four times. It's the home of one of our strongest handball clubs, who have been participating in the Champions League for many years now. Yes, we are going south, next to the Hungarian-Serbian border, the host city of the 2022 Totallympics Annual International Song Contest is... Szeged Hm... we also need a venue for our event. It's a good thing that Szeged doesn't just have a long history in Hungarian sports but it's also the home of one of our long running cultural events, the Szeged Open-Air Festival, the largest outdoor theater in Hungary, which has been active since 1931. So the venue this time isn't an arena or a stadium, brace yourselves because we are going outside! (Let's hope that the weather will be kind to us.) The venue of the 2022 Totallympics Annual International Song Contest is... Dóm Square Now that we are done with the formalities, it's time for you to go through the selection process, to find the song that will represent your country in this year's contest. The selection window will be longer than two weeks this year because we won't start the voting before the closure of the Winter Paralympics. You will get plenty of time to decide, choose wisely.
