    Beijing is going to be on par w/ SLC and Sochi there IMO.
     
    (For all the issues w/ Sochi their figure skating / short track venue and their primary ice hockey venue were gorgeous)

    For the only sport that matters (moguls) SLC’s venue remains the greatest of all times :P
     
    (I am much more excited for Milan’s venues tbh, Olympic biathlon in Antholz is gonna be nuts)

    What's frustrating is that we have vaccines available *everywhere* for free. You don't even need to book an appointment, you just show up and they stick a needle in your arm.

    Sorry for the bump ...

    But this kind of comment makes me piss off ... Dechuchi didn't sacrifice anything, she even got alot exemptions from Judo Canada. She has nothing Canadian in her, except her father. FIY it is her fault that the selection policy has changed, because she trains and is based in Japan. Judo Canada asked Deguchi to come to Canada right after the Antalya GS, so that they could both do the quarantine and preparation time. 

    And ... she refused, and Judo Canada proposed to both of them to use the World Championships as a qualifying event, both accept ...

    And the fact, the Deguchi's level is not top this year, his defeat against Eteri Liparteliani at GS Tbilisi year had put me in doubt about his level and not sure Deguchi would have won the 2 of 3, the last fight between the two is a DQ for Klimkait...

    Wild that Fernandez, someone completely unknown outside of Canada and of people who follow tennis pretty closely, made the US open finals... as the highest ranked player left.

    the main point also is that Leylah hasn't got there by chance , she earned this final by defeating the top possible opponents in each round , Osaka , Kerber , Sivotlina and Sabalenka all in 3 sets which makes it even more awesome as the experienced player is always the favorite when it comes to a 3rd set

    Quite happy with the outcome of these qualification tournaments tbh. Slovakia and Latvia have some of the best hockey fans in the world and Denmark is by far the best hockey nation that had never qualified for the Olympics.

    The Olympics are first and foremost a made for TV event anyway, I don’t see what’s wrong with spreading them across a wide region.
