    Margaret River Pro starts in a few hours from now... Hoping for Brisa Henessey  to get back her yellow jersey from Moore. Also excited to see if Tyler Wright can win back to back races.. 
     
    In the men's event will support Fillipe Tolledo  for his frequent high risk tricks helping him win Rip Curls last week! 
     
    Overall should be a very exciting event with at least 1 or 2 suprise semifinalists coming from nowhere. Perhaps some Western Australians using home advantage

    You are now the "owner" of the club, so you should be able to edit the titles of the sections, let me know if you have problems. We can have only one "owner", but I think @vinipereira has anyway all the permissions because he is an admin.

    Olà!
     
    With most of the 2024 Olympic Games qualification systems released it is now time to open the Brazilian club!
     
    I have used the name "Time Brasil" like suggested in the Brazil National Thread, but this can be changed in the future if you want.
     
    I have sent an invitation to all the Brazilian users, and I will invite here all the new Brazilian users when they will join Totallympics.
     
    I will make @vinipereira and @Laraja as "owners" of the club, you can start translating the sections of the club and open new threads.
     
    Let's make the Time Brasil active!

    This is actually what I’m most interested to see. I read the original news about this as a complete revamp of how the IOC handles universality, but the few documents published don’t seem too different from the past system.

    A remake of a French movie winning is somehow a joke. The movie is nice , but to win a Oscar as best movie ….
     
    i think power of the dog was a much better choice or even Dune.

    Laraja reacted to intoronto in Your post Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics Sport Program Review   
    Alpine skiing
    I only have one comment: The FIS/teams etc. need to take the combined seriously. This a classic and I hope it survives the cut for future games. Having skiers race h2h on a 25 second parallel course does not sound like a fair compromise tbh. Final verdict: Keep the program the same. If parallel slalom is a must, add it as a event instead of replacing an event currently on the program.
     
    Biathlon
    This sport is really under the radar. Very exciting and I wouldn't change a thing. The single mixed relay is not necessary for this sport.
     
    Bobsleigh
    The monobob had all athletes use the same technology for their sleds, and surprise the Germans did not medal. This needs to be replicated across all events on the bobsleigh program. I would also add in the men's monobob as well, and reduce the max. number of sleds to 2 per event.
     
    Cross-country skiing
    Nothing in particular here. The program is fine as is.
     
    Curling
    The depth in curling is something else. Arguable the winter sport with the most depth? I think the mixed doubles field can easily expand to 12-16 teams without jeopardizing the quality of the competition. Pools would be necessary if this were to happen.
     
    Figure skating
    The scoring system in the team event needs to change. Its too predictable as it stands, and medalists can be figured out well before the end of the event. Not sure what the answer is here.
     
    Freestyle skiing
    Mixed team aerials has to go. What an utter joke of an event by the IOC to gift China a gold medal (what an epic fail btw lol). I think its definitely gone for 2026. Most likely a mixed team ski cross will replace it. It is also finally time for dual moguls to make it onto the Olympic program.
     
    Hockey
    I think the system in the men's tournament is dumb. Having all 12 teams have a shot at the medal round defeats the purpose of the round robin. Have the top 8 advance and face off in a 8 team bracket. Simple.
     
    Luge
    Really can't do anything to this sport. I think it should remain the same for 2026. If women's doubles is added, we will likely see the other three events suffer severe quota cuts. 
     
    Nordic Combined
    No comment
     
    Short track speed skating
    This sport is very exciting, and I think it could use with another individual event per gender. No clue what though. 
     
    Skeleton
    No comment, though the mixed team event is likely on the program for 2026.
     
    Ski Jumping
    A women's large hill competition is likely to be added for 2026.
     
    Snowboarding
    WTF was that mixed team snowboard cross event? It has potential, but needs tweaking. A seeding run is needed too.
     
    Speed Skating
    Team sprint should be added.

    Laraja got a reaction from LuizGuilherme in Summary of your NOC peformance in Beijing 2022 olympics   
    How did your NOC perform in Beijing?
     
    Pretty good for our expectations, Brazil is always improving in winter sports (even if it is happening in a very slow way)
     
    Was it better than expected or was it worse?
     
    I think it was better. Our only real expectation were TOP 15 in Skeleton and TOP 20 in Bobsled and we got both of them
     
    What were the ups and downs, what were the highlights, what were the biggest disappointments?
     
    Highlights - Nicole 13th in Skeleton, 4-man 20th in Bobsled and Manex Silva in Cross Country with the best FIS points achieved by a Brazilian.
     
    Downs - Of course what happened to Bruna before the games is on the top. Also, Michel Macedo who didn't complete the second run in Slalom, he could get a TOP 30, and Sabrina Cass in Moguls, I was expecting a final at least.
     
    What were the most emotional events for you? Who made a suprisingly good result?
     
    The interview from Sabrina representing Brazil and Edson Bindilatti after his last run in Bobsled.
     
     
    I hope that in Italy, Brazilian team will be bigger, and present in more sports. We have very good prospects in different sports that we didn't participate in these games. And also improve our results, getting the best performance in a Winter Olympics or even getting a medal.
