Haha, how amazing would it be if there was another Japanese skater with the surname Williamson without any family connection to Shane? She is indeed his sister. Arito already proved he is talented as he won 2 out of the 3 gold medals at the Youth Olympics (1.500m and mass start) this year in St. Moritz. And 13:28 in Nagano is a very respectable time for a 18-year old, so I'm excited to see what's next.
First National Championships of the season were held over this weekend in Nagano. Here are the podiums: Women: 500m 1.000m 1.500m 3.000m 5.000m Gold Nao Kodaira 37,73 Miho Takagi 1.14,21 Miho Takagi 1.54,81 Misaki Oshigiri 4.07,88 Lemi Williamson 7.14,58 Silver Arisa Go 37,

I'm a big fan of statistics and I've decided to compile an unofficial world ranking based on the best four times skated per distance over the past 12 months (or 24 months for women's 5k and men's 10k), adjusted for the track they're skating on. I know most people won't care, but it's just a fun project for myself. If there's one place where others potentially might be interested, it would be here. This is what the top 10 per distance looks like right now before the start of the new season: Women: # 500m 1.000m 1.500m 3.
Thanks man! I'm doing great. In total I was sick for about 5 days, 3 of which I felt very ill with a high fever and afterwards I lost my taste and my smell, which was a strange experience but nothing bad. Hope everyone here is still healthy and manages to keep their spirits up.
Hahaha, that's true. And nobody likes to rent out a place to two friends in their 20s, afraid that we might break down the whole place, so it was one nightmare to find a place here when we had to leave our previous home. Yeah, I thought by taking good precautions, it was possible to at least delay it by a couple of days, but as most symptoms become apparent after day 4 or day 5, I most likely got infected within the first 24 hours. But hey, as you said, no need to worry anymore about getting it. As I said, for me it was not bad at all. It felt like a regular flu to me w
Hahaha, don't have much of a choice with these housing prices here in Amsterdam. That's right! He's a nice guy. He asked me if it was okay that he would come back to Amsterdam as his mother had cancer not that long ago and staying with her would be a higher risk than staying with me. We tried everything we could to keep the virus contained by for example having him only stay in his bedroom and me providing him with food by leaving it in front of his doorstep, but to no avail. I can't wait. Thanks for the support!
Unfortunately I got infected through my roommate who came back from Austria about 1,5 week ago after the town he visited got quarantined due to a Corona outbreak. He and all of his friends he went on the trip with all got sick after returning to the Netherlands. Fortunately, my roommate has already recovered in full and I'm slowly recovering as well, and luckily we both only had mild symptoms. However, I've been locked inside with my roommate for more than a full week now and I'm already slowly going crazy. We can't even go outside to buy groceries or medication and have to rely on friends and
After the second 500m: Top contenders/outsiders: Best results for: 1. Miho Takagi, 2. Nao Kodaira and 3. Kaylin Irvine Worst results for: 1. Vanessa Herzog, 2. Daria Kachanova, 3. Brittany Bowe Other skaters: Best results for: 1. Hege Bøkko, 2. Li Qishi, 3. Zhao Xin Worst results: 1. Andżelika Wójcik, 2. Hanna Nifantava, 3. Stien Vanhoutte Overall: Expected podium is now Miho Takagi, 2. Nao Kodaira and 3. Olga Fatkulina. Miho will be the only one who will finish below 150 points (ev
Final standings: Men: Kiran Badloe - 37 points Dorian van Rijsselberghe - 39 points Thomas Goyard - 56 points Because Dorian finished second here, he won’t get to defend his title in Tokyo as Kiran has now won 2 golds and 1 silver at the latest three world championships, whereas Dorian won 1 gold and 2 silvers. Too bad the two best windsurfers in the world can’t both compete against each other at the Olympics. Women: Lilian de Geus - 46 points Charline Picon - 51 points Noy Drihan - 52 points
After the first 1.000m: Top contenders/outsiders: On average, most times on this first 1.000m were around what I expected, but there were some great outliers on both sides: Out of the favorites and outsiders, Arisa Go, Jorien ter Mors and Miho Takagi had the best 1.000m. Daria Kachanova, Vanessa Herzog and Nao Kodaira were the biggest disappointments on this first 1.000m. Outside of the top contenders: Kim Min-Ji did a lot better than I expected closing the gap to the rest, but I still think she'll finish last, Hege Bøkk
Close first 500m in the men's sprint tournament. Dubreuil wins the race and won bronze on the 1.000m at the World Distance Championships two weeks ago, so he might challenge the Russians here. Pretty much all 1.000m specialists apart from Kulizhnikov and Dubreuil showed disappointing times.
