  1. Thanks
    Vektor got a reaction from Grassmarket in International Olympic Committee News   
    Here's a solution: allow Russian and Belorussian athletes to change their nationality and complete under the flag of any other nation without the current strict nation changing rules. With the added notion that they can't easily go back to being Russian athletes once the ban on their country is over. If they don't agree with the action of their country, allow them to leave their country for good, in an easy way that they can compete in 2024. No neutrality bullshit where Russia can spin it in a way that they are still Russian. They won't be Russian if you see a flag of some other nation next to their name. This would be a much bigger humiliation than the ban or the neutrality, seeing their best talent flee their country and leaving their failed state behind.

    @OlympicIRL it's been a bit quiet, which I assume is a good thing as it should mean that we already got a host? Is  ready to host the Annual contest?

    Least earned Top8 placement ever for us, but sometimes you have to get lucky in sport. I still kinda doubt that we will qualify to Paris, but at least we will be at the OQT.

    As far as I can tell the teams most likely to finish 9th and 10th are  and  right? 
     
    That way is the how the OQT spots will likely go...
     
     - host
     - should be a direct qualifier from Africa
              (  or ) - one of them gets the WCh quota, another of them wins the ECh quota next year, rest go to QQT
        - last two OQT spots goes to them if four Top8 teams directly qualify to the Games
     
    Now watch Egypt "mess this up" by stealing the WCh quota from Europe.  In that case two African teams would directly qualify to the Games, probably Egypt and Cape Verde.

    No chance whatsoever against Sweden, our only hope is that they will fall asleep in the second half.

    The year in sports brought us a lot of joy, tears and excitement, not only for the athletes competing, but for Totallympics members around the world. As we say goodbye to the returning edition of our annual awards, here's hope that 2023 can also be a memorable year for all sports fans. For now, we'll remember the moments that united us in 2022, presenting the theme song for this edition: TISC winner "Superheroes", by Irish band The Script.
     
     

     
    Thank you all! Have a great year and until the next Totallympics Awards!

    Well, where to begin…
     
    The forum stayed online another year thanks to @Sindo. It got a facelift thanks to the content generated by @Matej@JoshMartini007@Vojthas @Mkbw50 and others. Our results section grew thanks to the major contribution of @frantic13poland, among others. We celebrated another two editions of TISC under the guidance of @OlympicIRL, with wonderful hosts @Vektor @Hipooo. Our competitive circuit of prediction contests was once again successfully overseen by @Wumo, and our end of year awards revived by @vinipereira. Finally, the moderation team kept things (mostly) civil in the threads for another year against all odds. Hats off all 
     
    It finally felt like international sports returned to a semi-normal state this year. We celebrated another Olympics, World Cup, and numerous other events together. Unfortunately, it was also a year marked by conflict. Conflict between nations; between internal domestic forces; between users. It was certainly a year of highs and lows; from top athletes missing the Olympics due to Covid and other injuries, to Messi finally leading Argentina to a World Cup victory. Some of us spent time recovering from injuries and illness, while others celebrated bringing a new life into the world. Through it all, and not to lean too hard on the favorite cliche of the international sports community, we were united by sport. 
     
    Whether we were captivated or devastated, entertained or bored, overjoyed by victory or ostensibly angered by loss; users alike were connected by sport. We screamed, laughed, argued, celebrated, and debated like one large dysfunctional family; a brotherhood of international sports fans. I can say, without a shred of doubt, that my year was inextricably improved by the time I spent on this forum. If time is money, then joining the forum just over four years ago was one of my more sound investments. I’d like to thank all of you for your contributions to this forum. We’ve collectively grown such a wonderful, even if occasionally frustrating, community. 
     
    Additionally, many of you have been so incredibly supportive of my career as an international sports journalist. I can’t thank you enough for your support. I can only hope to repay you with more excellent content in the year to come. 
     
    So with that sentiment, let’s remember fondly the year we’re leaving behind, and greet the future with great enthusiasm. We’re now mere minutes away from the last Totallympics time zone joining everyone else in the New Year, so break out the confetti, libations, firecrackers, boomsticks, and cursed vuvuzelas. It’s time for one last celebration in 2022!

    Vektor got a reaction from Biathlonfan in Doping Cases and Bans in 2022   
    It was leaked that the Hungarian swimmers suspected of doping are competing in butterfly, one male, one female. The male swimmer is an Olympic athlete, the female swimmer is a Hungarian champion. 
     
    Based on this I would say that the male swimmer is either Milák or Kenderesi. 
     
    Shit will hit the fan before the end of the year, I doubt that they can hide it for long who are the suspected athletes. I am bracing for the worst...

    I forgot to post my predictions yesterday. The Men's are more obvious, the winner should be Liu Shaoang, unless they don't want to give him due to him and his brother leaving Hungary at the end of the year, which I think would be bullshit. Milák and Szilágyi are the other members of the Top3. 
     
    For the women, it's kinda hard to pick someone as the winner. Personally I would pick Rita Keszthelyi, but athletes in team sports almost never win. Keszthelyi might be the greatest Hungarian female water polo player ever, she deserves it. Kozák should be Top3 for that 100 hurdles ECh medal and Kovács is also an obvious choice for winning gold in gymnastics.
     
    I think the women's water polo team should win again, they had an amazing year, silver medal at the WCh. My two other picks for the Top3 would be the two football teams, Ferencváros for finally having a great year in the UEFA Europa League and Hungarian national football team for having some exceptional results in the UEFA Nations League.

    Vektor got a reaction from rafalgorka in Name the 5 Olympic moments most remembered in your Country   
    Let's see what are the Top5 for
     
    1st
    Krisztina Egerszegi wins 200m backstroke in Seoul at the age of 14. A very highly regarded win due to her age, against a very dominant . 

     
    2nd
    Hungary v Soviet Union at the Melbourne water polo Olympic tournament, right after the 1956 Hungarian revolution. Remembered as a revenge against the Soviets, the match's most iconic moment is the "blood in the pool", Ervin Zádor comes out of the pool with blood pouring from above the eye after one of the Soviet players punched him.
     

     
    3rd
    Not every memorable moment is positive. The most memorable loss in Hungarian sport (next to the 1954 World Cup final), the Hungarian women's handball team throws away a 6 goal lead against Denmark and loses the Sydney Olympic final. We might never have another chance like this one to win a gold in handball.
     

     
    4th
    First ever Hungarian gold medal at the Winter Games, you probably all remember this one.
     

     
    5th
    Hard to pick the fifth. I am going with "Gold from the 1st lane" as it's brought up regularly by Hungarian commentators. Attila Czene wins the 200 individual medley in Atlanta from the 1st lane, one of the most unexpected Hungarian gold medals in swimming.
