    Once again Penny Farthing Nocturnes* are ignored, though.  
     
    *It does exist; there used to be an annual one in London.

    Missed this story a couple of days back. WA getting wise to the manipulated results for Olympic qualification scam. You’ll not be surprised at the countries named.

    Same thing happened to her as happens to all the British female riders. They get signed up to a big team & end up as domestiques for van Vleuten, Vos, Vollering (and that’s just the Vs) or other big names.

    Agree. I don’t think that a bunch of people who think you can run an industrialised country off windmills or that men can get pregnant have the standing to go around telling anyone else how to live their lives.

    We’ve got an every-expense-spared Opening Ceremony!
     
    Nothing says Baseball like a brass band in traditional Bavarian Costume!  
     
    Still, can guarantee that this will be the best beer & bratwurst at any baseball stadium.  
     
    Oh, Help me God, a German rapper!

    Time of the year when the kids get their chance to play with the big boys &  Archie Ryan took his with a win in Slovensko up a Belgian-style climb - ie a cobbled hill with a church on top of it.

    Thus proving the SDs point that there is no difference between any of the establishment parties. They always unite against the voters to protect their own privileged position, even when they don’t win.

    The same as "Right wing = Evil incarnate."   But we can't let loose of the narrative, am i right. Can't wait to see the doom and gloom, that will happen in Sweden and their drop in the World Development and Living standard position from 4th to 6th. I don't know how people would be able to live there now.

    As we saw with the history of BLM, it’s very easy to talk in wonderful slogans of justice & equality and to be a cynical rip-off merchant interested only on your own enrichment.

    The 2024 World Indoors in Glasgow will therefore be the next WIC.  
     
    China are also scheduled to host in 2023 the World Relays, two Diamond Leagues & the Asian Games, which are also doubtful.

    Horrible story from Scotland. World Cup mountain biker Rab Wardell suffers a heart attack and dies just a day after winning the Scottish National Championships. At his side & unable to revive him was his partner, Olympic Gold Medallist Katie Archibald.
