    Agreed. I'd rather watch the entire aerials event rather than bobsleigh( usually 20mins at the end only). Nations are few but scoring looks more transparent as compared to big air in which I just couldn't differentiate how a 80 pointer was better than 90 pointer while looking almost exactly alike. 
    With the nature of aerials 6-7 nations have medal (winning) potential in women and 3-5 in men which is fine.

    Considering it's a 6km long travel for athletes he may not reach the other end before the opening ceremony ends

    Hope you can see your nation at the games in weightlifting again. Doesn't look a very promising situation.

    I definitely felt he had a chance to win it if he beats Axelsen. He is in great form and improving day by day .

    Her article was published in toi, indian express and goan daily. Before that I had no idea of coastal rowing. After the world rowing has made it clear to request scrapping of lightweight rowing and few other events in favour of coastal rowing at same venue as sailing it sounded great.

    just saw the opening night of the new Cricket tournament, The Hundred...
     
    it was quite a nice show (the girls can play very good and entertaining cricket, I must say)...I like the new 100-ball format and the new on-screen graphics concept...
     
    I think it might be a good think to catch some new spectators also in the non traditional Countries...
     
    now we only need an international board that actually wants to try to develop the Game outside the usual places...

    @Fly_like_a_don I agree, I thought the same thing.  The men's team is so strong, that they can rotate.  The funny thing, for the nations who only have 4 starters or even 3, the squad rotation is not even possible.  It kind of makes the Norwegian team seem like a spoiled rich kid.

    We have to learn from Thailand where the women are given full time contracts in team sports while men where funded for some time but didn't show promise. Look at their women's cricket, football and volleyball teams all have made it to the World Cup within 4 years of full time contracts.

    Oh well.. Skateboarding  The sport I hated the most at the games. Good to see Modern Pentathlon reaching where it deserves. Hopefully never gets included in the games again. I'm ok with Surfing making the list, it's a nice sport but is more enjoyable to watch it in person and even more fun when you have learnt it, living an hour away from the Surfing capital of the country I dare oppose it's inclusion as core sport.  
     
    I hope weightlifting and boxing cleans every mess and gets added along with some additional sports .

    Last two spots are by time, so if they run a good race in Salt Lake City they should get one of those two spots.
     
    They won't qualify by points.

    I think you mean team pursuit. Yes, 6 teams by points and 2 of remaining teams by fastest time. Japan have a very good chance to be the 2 fastest time if they surpass KOR's performance in USA.

    I wanted the contest to resume just for the sake of Czech Republic tbh. 
     
    India meanwhile got 3 points the entire day from 3 juries. Was expecting at least 20 more. Nonetheless I clearly understand that no one here likes hindi songs , like not even a bit.
