    The     2020 Olympic Wikipedia pages have been changed including the female gymnast in the respective country's contingent. Perhaps all Asian NOCs will stake a claim  
  2. Thanks
    Griff88 reacted to MHSN in Weightlifting Qualification to Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games   
    they just removed that from the rules. only participating in Period 1 and 2 is mandatory. Period 3 A and B both could help you to collect more points but that's not mandatory anymore.

    IWF Olympic Ranking is now fully updated, they added Pan-Am results too
     
     
    @Griff88you heard the news ? Eko Yuli Irawan is now safe and qualified. I wonder if that changes anything for Li Fabin of China. probably not.

    Griff88 reacted to NearPup in Poll 15/100 | Which mixed gender event are you most excited to watch at Tokyo?   
    I'm going to answer this as a tier list:
     
    Mixed events that are must watch for me:
    Badminton mixed doubles Table tennis mixed doubles Tennis mixed doubles Triathlon mixed relay  
    Mixed events that I am not upset are in the Olympics:
    Archery mixed team Sailing mixed multihull The three shooting mixed team events  
    Mixed events I don't believe should be in the Olympics:
    Athletics mixed 4x400m relay Judo mixed team event (the format is simply unfair) Swimming mixed 4x100m medley relay I am against the athletics and swimming mixed relays because they are essentially redundant (wouldn't be opposed to mixed relays that are markedly different from the same-gendered relays). I think the mixed judo team event has a fatally flawed format that has no place in a serious competition like the Olympics (too few weight classes and a very unfair mechanism to resolve 3-3 ties).

    Griff88 reacted to Vektor in Which of these indigenous but popular sports would you like to see in Olympics?   
    Well, if bowls is really that popular and if the nations can agree on a format, I would see no issues with it as an Olympic sport. Sadly IOC is more interested in adding X Games sports.

    Griff88 reacted to MHSN in Weightlifting AWF Asian Championships 2020   
    it's just like you are explaining the situation in Iran , specially those bold parts . I had to explain the difference between World Cup and World Championships like million times . mostly because here Football = Sport ! and since the biggest event in Football is called the World Cup. everybody thinks that applies to all other sports automatically !
     
    yeah we also have that problem that football journalists are forced to write about other sports. maybe only wrestling has its own group of expert journalists. Weightlifting is not that big, actually far from that, a third tier sport actually, but there are still couple of journalists about it.

    The problem will be "false positives".
    A lot will miss their events and then be cleared to compete a few days later

    What. The. Fuck. Just. Happened.
     
    I was wondering why I had to read 50 pages and it was because of Slovenia having to give out points one by one
     
    Anyways, sorry I haven't really been on all day, but I was following. Congrats @intoronto on another win and I am shocked that since I last left the US entry jumped a bunch of places, so thank you to Lithuania, Netherlands, and Hungary for the coveted 12. Also, thanks to Spain, Great Britain, Canada, Denmark, Mexico, Finland, Norway, Croatia, Bulgaria, China, Indonesia, and Brazil for the points
     
    Thank you for hosting the contest @rybak it must be a lot of hard work. Trust me, I know.
