    Bolivia scored more own goals than regular goals in this tournament.

    Well, 48 hours after the end of the competition I can say I was impressed with this tournament, I've seen good matches, good positioning in the field, great shots on target, determination, fair play, individual skills, even though not all matches looked like this.
    Overall, women football in Africa is on the rise.

    As I said before, I have never watched the Commonwealth Games much. But I have a Commonwealth Games story in my family history...
     
     
    My sister was a good 800m runner at junior level here in Poland. She was 6th at Junior Nationals one year.
     
    And her favourite 800m runner was an English athlete - Joanne Fenn. A really good runner, a very nice person, she took part in Athens 2004 olympics, performed well but didn't make it to a final and then was a bit overshadowed by Kelly Holmes magnicifient triumph.
     
    Back in 2006 my sis had a difficult year, serious exams at the end of the highschool etc. She was quite stressed about it and to cheer her up I wrote an e-mail to an English athletics club, Joanne Fenn trained there, and I said sth like: my sis liked her so much, she's a kind of role model for her, so if she could send a photo with a few words of sympathy that would be awesome... and I asked her: make it a surprise for her.
     
    And few days later a surprise package came from UK, and inside there was not only a photo with greetings, but a full running outfit prepared for Fenn as a member of 2006 England Team for Commonwealth Games held in Melbourne that year. We were just stunned.
     
    And then... it turned out that Fenn made it to a team and then - at the very last moment - she had to withdraw because she had really serious health issues, she had even got a major operation on a grapefruit-sized cyst...
     
    So I guess it was a win-win situation. My sister was sooo happy about it and I think Jo Fenn smiled a bit when at her awfullest times she got news that she means so much for young runners somwehere abroad.
     
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joanne_Fenn
     
    There is not so much news on the internet about what's Joanne Fenn is doing these days but I hope she's healthy and she's having a good life.
     
    I think we still have these clothes somewhere...

    Maybe not the best topic, but I wanted to tell this story. You read the scores correct, the matches ended with 91-1 and 0-95, both winning teams tried to achieve better goal difference than the other. There is a suspect of cheating.

    First day already saw a bit of an upset as Jamaica defeated Mexico 1-0. This will make it unlikely for Mexico to reach the semis and will thus exclude them from qualifying to the Olympics.

    Ferrari found a way to throw their 1-2 victory away. Poor Leclerc, this should have been a big moment for him in the WCh, instead he isn't even on the podium.

    The wrong Ferrari won but Carlos Sainz takes his first F1 victory so I'm happy for him. Leclerc 4th and Verstappen 7th after running over a debris and struggling with a damaged car for over half of the race.

    Ah, the same old story. Netherlands is allowed to use players from their colonies. Italy is allowed to use Italian-Americans. But when Israel does the same, then it's HOW DARE.
