    Much like Zimbabwe in 2016, they had a miracle run and qualified.
     
    They defeated Zimbabwe (on walkover), Botswana, Kenya on their way to the final, where they defeated Cameroon on the away goal rule.
     
    Earlier on, Botswana miraculously defeated South Africa (on penalties), while Kenya surprisingly eliminated Ghana after extra time.
     
    Basically, an outcome that is one in a million.

    Hubert Hurkacz beats Jannik Sinner 7-6, 6-4 and achieved the best result not only in his career but also the best result ever for any male Polish tennis player in singles!

    You know that's not gonna happen. Some countries/athletes will enjoy a clear advantage in access to the best equipment and this is when the tech progress will be outlawed. Just need some big names to voice their displeasure (like Michael Phelps with the full-body suits).

    The guy missed the F1 1990-93 TV graphics which even had driver photos. 1993 was the last year where local broadcaster's language was used for TV graphics.

    Netherlands would have the dumbest NOC ever should they decline that quota.
     
    2005 skater entered Top 16 and became the first Dutch to qualify since 1976.
     
    No way they decline that.

    It's not if you consider the old compulsory figures. Denise Biellmann was notoriously bad at CP and Janet Lynn won silver in 1973 despite 12th in short program (but she was 1-2 in free & compulsory).
     
    I recall one totally forgettable short from Maria Butyrskaya before she climbed up after free but don't remember the year anymore.

    For our US viewers, who won’t be seeing this kind of article anytime soon.  An explanation of how a Joe Biden press conference works.   Kind of like how a Leonid Brezhnev press conference worked, really.  You too can get 100% in all your exams if you just use this method.

    It's amazing how the russians are just mocking everyone with these anthem proposals. And to be fair, they are right in doing so since the imposed sanctions are a complete joke (in the sense of being less than a slap in the wrist) to begin with.

    Biden is incapable of handling the border crisis so he has to get Harris to do it,
     
    Then, during a meeting with the Press to announce the decision, he gets completely lost & confused and his Chief of Staff has to scramble to close the meeting.

    But this case proved he can get away with it and that's the most important thing. He's not gonna lose his job over meddling with any court proceedings IMO. Hail to the democracy!
     
    If Trump called him to lock Meng up and he obeyed then he's just a mere servant on the global scale. And even Joe Biden would know that right now.

    Retaliation is an old weapon in politics. Besides USA & Canada think that whatever China does is a sham so why should China care about appearances anymore? They simply don't. Trudeau is a second league player on the Chinese chessboard anyway.

    Making moves to please chief Chinese critic Donald Trump worked short-term but now you're dealing with long-term effects. Trudeau won the 100m dash but China is running in the marathon And USA is still trying to navigate the Nord Stream 2 mine field. You just can't put China and Russia out of business by bringing a knife to a gunfight.

    Canada started this by arresting Meng Wanzhou in 2018. Everything after that is simple payback. If you want to start economical war with China prepare for casualties

    Everything China does nowadays is revenge for things that happened in the nineteenth century.  You’d better read up on them; now that Beijing Biden is in the White House we’ll be seeing a lot more of them.
