    Rulebook, special section CCP.8.8 :"The rest of the rules shall not apply to any skater with special status- in case they are fighting for medals, they can be disqualified only if they murder another skater on the ice".

    Still, DSQ for KOR in the first men's semi for the best manoeuvre of the day was the worst.

    Points to be noted at the end of 1st biathlon event :
    1. Terrible Graphics
    2. Poor commentary 
    3. Not so good looking course 
    4. Norway may dominate again thanks to their superior ski speed

    No chances. Vasnetcova, Tregubov and Semyenov are out of Olympics and their replacements are on their way.

    I'll watch some of it live some after the games end. 
     
    The one's I'll watch now 
    Biathlon
    Snowboarding ( PGS, Cross) 
    Short Track 
    Skeleton 
    Bobsleigh 
    Luge
    Moguls 
    Aerials
    Alpine Skiing 
    Cross Country Skiing Sprint Ind and Team, women's mass start 30km
     
    I'll watch others maybe later on. But Figure Skating isn't something on my list even for future, pretty long and boring. Ice Hockey is another sport which I can't watch too much maybe 1 full match in 1 month that's it. Big Air, Ski Jumping all can be left out without any thoughts.

    Thanks for your nice words. I hope that she'll be able to start as well. She is one of our only few chances for a good result in Beijing, so that would be a shame if she couldn't start on Saturday in the heats.

    That's pretty sad to hear. Hope she recovers soon. I am pretty excited of watching almost the entire short track program on TV for the first time ever so I hope it's just a false positive and I can see her just like all others .

    And now we have some very little of it shown live on TV ( public broadcaster free to air) and on their YouTube channel (1 sport per day )A detailed schedule is not given but the promo was largely restricted to Short Track, alpine, luge . Short Track makes since the timings are in the evening which can be more noticed than a event in the morning or afternoon. 
     
    Olympics.com will show all live streams which won't be blocked.

    From my understanding, they’ll be deemed close contacts, which means they’ll be subject to special regulations in the bubble, but assuming they don’t chance the virus, they can still compete. That’s how I understand the procedure anyway.

    @Fly_like_a_don Maybe you are right but:
     
    1. I don't want to make majority of the polls only about who wins gold in certain event;
    2. There was a poll about who wins men's biathlon relay before;
    3. Wierer is one of my favourite wintersports athletes so I just wanted her to have her own poll here ;-) like Ledecka before.
     
    Anyway, thanks for a comment. I will make a poll about mass start race later.

    Just goes on to show how much IOC have done in winter sports. Now I seriously believe IOC should set aside tripartite quotas and have some unused quotas added to tripartite. I would love to see a cross country sprint event being held like 100m, preliminary heats followed by regular time trial ( with certain proportion of skieers qualifying for second stage) 
     
    Initially tripartite may sound like joke to most but if a tripartite can win a medal in Tokyo Olympics then why not expect something similar may not be now or next games over a few decades.

    Fly_like_a_don got a reaction from rafalgorka in Road to Beijing 2022 Poll #6 | Which of these nations will NOT win a medal in Beijing 2022?   
    Well Poland is one of those nations which don't have any bright medal favourites as such. 
     
    Andżelika Wójcik had a win this season but she sadly isn't consistent and I think  will share the medals in W500m. 
     
    I don't follow Ski jumping but I didn't find anything good for Poland  from the results. 
     
    Short track still maybe women's 500m but it may not be a 100% .
     
    Despite all this I'll still support  in all sports just like many other nations and hope Poland can win some medals.

    In North America it’s like cycling - ie lots of people do it, but don’t necessarily follow it as a professional sport.  In Italy, Germany, France it’s a regional sport, very strong in some areas, unknown in most.  In other countries, it’s popular when a fellow countryman is winning, less so when they’re not.

    Not really. 
    I found these quarantine rules in Germany from thelocal.de
     
     
    Anyone who tests positive for Covid-19 using a PCR test in Germany must isolate at home for up to ten days, including those who are fully vaccinated.
     
    This can be shortened to five days with a negative PCR test taken on that day or seven days with a negative antigen test taken on day seven.
