ATHENS 1896's Achievements

  1. Thank you @hckošice for your immediate response. Let's hope that during forthcoming European Champs or via the expected Athletics Paris 2024 qualification procedures more insight will be available.
  2. Is there any update / link on the subject? The schedule for the Paris 2024 is announced with 35 k mixed team - but still no further clue... just 2 years before the Games. Not the level of planning expected by World Athletics.
  3. The case of Weng Hao vs. Liu Wang is very marginal. According to tie break rules: Maximum of One Quota Place per NOC and/or Athlete Qualifies on More than One Apparatus In case of more than one (1) quota place per NOC or if an athlete qualifies on more than one apparatus, the following procedure will apply to determine which quota place will be earned: 1. The highest average World Cup points on the respective apparatus from all competitions attended in the series prevails 2. If they remain tied, the best average rank on the respective apparatus in the Qualifications of all competitions attended in the series prevails As things stand now for tb rule1 Hao is better with 4 times 30 points and once 25 (average 29) - Liu has 3 times 30 points and once 25 (average 28,75). The BIG question is what happens if Hao does not compete in the last event and Liu competes and gets 30 points. The TB rules will not work.
  4. I see in FIG World Cup rankings that Pommel Horse goes to LEE Chih Kai from TPE. Is he out or qualified via another criteria? Just checked and realized that he is qualified via Team Qualification. So in that case his results are not counting in the Apparatus World Cup process?
  5. You are absolutely right. NBC will significantly influence; not to say dictate the date window.
  6. Summarizing from previous posts: There is no international event going on. Domestic top level, we have: @Federer91 Belarus has football, handball, hockey and volleyball. Russia has some volleyball and some hockey. Australia has a variety of sports still going on. - I found Football A League - additional ones? There is plenty of football in Africa, Middle East and Americas including Brazils regional cups. - I found Football Nicaragua, Angola and Burundi - more? @Grassmarket Japan Sumo @Sindo Argentina BMX Racing (probably cancelled, but not 100% confirmed)
  7. Which are the top leagues from team seasonal sports that are still on, even behind closed doors? I know Turkish footballl league, and maybe Australia NRL and AFL. Anything else that you can add?
  8. After many years a big smile for Greek Boxing! A great and well deserved win for Pita! Let's see her at next round!
  9. I was not clear enough that i was referring to Mens team sports & Argentina Mens teams. In womens team sports the situation and the competition level is very different
  10. Congrats to Argentina team sports. They managed to qualify mens team in Football, Basketball, Volleyball, Handball, Hockey & Rugby sevens. Unique achievement. (missed just Baseball, Water Polo and Basket 3x3). Only USA could match this.
  11. I have posted two days ago in womens' thread, now in mens' as well: Kazakhstan was selected as a host country. It was planned that the tournament would be held in the capital of Kazakhstan Nur-Sultan (previously named Astana) in the middle of February (12th – 16th). But, yesterday, Kazakhstan refused to organize the continental championships. The Government of Kazakhstan suspended all passengers traveling to and from neighboring county China. It also suspended the issue of visas to Chinese citizens because of an outbreak of a new coronavirus spread. After this government’s decision, the Aquatics Federation of Kazakhstan had to give up the organization of the tournament. The Asian Swimming Federation and FINA have to find a new solution quickly. The Asian Championships have to be finished before the World Qualifications. Source: https://total-waterpolo.com/problems-on-road-to-tokyo-kazakhstan-refuses-to-host-asian-championships/
  12. That is exactly the concern : earning the Olympic qualification. SA players have not swim a single meter to earn it.
  13. The following countries were supposed to compete in the Women’s Competition China Japan Democratic People’s Republic of Korea Singapore Uzbekistan Kazakhstan Source: http://swimming.org.sg/SSA/NEWS-MEDIA/Latest-News/Archived-News/2019/Singapore-Women-s-National-Water-Polo-Team-to-comp.aspx# Surprise Thailand is not listed.

  15. Having SA in the OG tournament will be another negative point for the sport. 1 It will produce negative publicity for the unbalanced matches 2. It will showcase how underdeveloped the sport is outside Europe and North America 3. It will provide negative motivation for highly competitive European teams that have one less place to qualify. Once more FINA is well below the par, when it comes to Water Polo
