ChandlerMne reacted to MHSN in Wrestling UWW Individual World Cup 2020
they are both in top 16 of the world obviously and technically deserve to qualify but well wrestling (and sport in general) is not always about what do you deserve.
there is a seeding system but that's not working properly and both Vlasov and Nemes will be unseeded. and they are not the only favorites in the competition. the German guy who almost beat Vlasov is good, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Turkey, Belarus, Ukraine they are all good enough to upset one of those two guys.
but there will be one last chance in Bulgaria too. Nemes and Vlasov have to finish in top 2 in one of these tournaments. (EQT in HUN or last WQT in BUL) same goes to all wrestlers not qualified yet including the Iranians ! but our job is a BIT easier because the Asian qualifier is not as hard as the European one. still much much harder than other continents.

Political correctness is an angry God: like the Gods of the Aztecs, it demands regular human sacrifices.
Fejzulai had been jailed in April 2019 for trying to join Islamic State but he was granted early release in December under juvenile law because he was 19-years-old at the time. He was not deemed capable of carrying out an attack, according to a report.
Bet the judge, politicians & civil servants who took that decision have armed bodyguards.

highest number of death for Iran with 235 today and it's just getting worse. finally after 5 months Tehran province is declared today as "red zone", my town is in red zone for more than a week though.
I'm convinced that probably alongside USA and Brazil we will be the last countries to solve this virus thing. (unless a vaccine changes things) guess what Iran, USA and Brazil have in common ?
and personally the worst news is my sister is showing symptoms, (still no confirmed test) and she was with me on Friday (probably the only mistake I made in past 5 months) and I'm coughing too. (well I cough a lot so it can be nothing but you know the power of mind) and I will quarantine myself completely to see what will happen.

Not sur if it counts, but both the FIFA and the FIBA Youtube channels have uploaded some "classics" recently:
FIFA for example uploaded Netherlands vs. Mexico (2014 world cup), France vs. Argentina (2018 world cup), Nigeria vs. Italy (1994 world cup), Portugal vs. Spain (2018 world cup), Brazil vs. Argentina (1990 world cup), France vs. Italy (2006 world cup), Netherlands vs. Brazil (2010 world cup), Brazil vs. France (1986 world cup), Spain vs. Netherlands (2014 world cup) and also the official movies for the 2014 and 2018 world cups.
FIBA uploaded USA vs. Serbia (2014 world cup), Spain vs. Slovenia (2017 eurobasket), Yugoslavia vs. Argentina (2002 world cup) and a "movie" about the history of the world cup.
ChandlerMne reacted to Sindo in Totallympics Announcements Thread
since all sport events are suspended for some months, I would like to think about some ways to improve Totallympics.
First of all, I have thought about a system to provide results on the forum, like we were doing in the past. I will give more details at a later stage but users interested to help with that can let me know so I will keep them updated and we can make some tests before the competition start again.
Also, we would like to merge https://games24.totallympics.com and https://qualifyingtothegames.totallympics.com/ websites into a single one. If someone is interested to help with the content of the website is welcome, but more than that we would need some help in the web design. The website is using Wordpress, has someone here any experience with Wordpress or with web design in general ?
If so, please let me know here or through Private Message, any help will be appreciated

I believe March has seen the first death of an Olympian attributed to Cofid-19 following the passing of former Spanish cyclist Daniel Yuste yesterday. We will be fortunate if he is the last.
On a more positive note more than seventy Olympians have lived to be centenarians. Aarne Kainlauri who died in March aged 104 was the third Finn to achieve that mark. The longest lived Olympian was American shooter Walter Walsh (1907-2014) who died five days short of his 107th birthday. The oldest living Olympian is another American John Lysak (born 16/8/1914) who competed in flat water canoeing at the 1936 Games in Berlin.
A number of the other Olympians who died last month have already been discussed earlier in this thread including the great Czech athlete Dana Zatopkova. Among the others who have passed away in March were John Davies of Australia who won a gold medal in the 200m breaststroke at the 1952 Games and Robert Shavlakadze of the former Soviet Union who was the Olympic champion in the high jump in Rome in 1960.
Wolfgang Hoffman of the United Team of Germany competed in the first Olympic judo tournament in Tokyo in 1964 winning a silver medal. There were only four classes at this first outing for the sport and all were for men in the days before the IOC gave any thought to equality. Japan won three of the four golds with the Netherlands winning the other.
Finally I have included the administrator Borislav Stankovic who although both a player and coach never competed at an Olympic Games. He did serve on the Yugoslav NOC and the IOC, but it was as Secretary General of FIBA between 1976 and 2002 that he had most influence. Among other things he changed the rules to enable professional players from the NBA to compete at the Olympics bringing about the arrival of the USA's so-called "Dream Teams" at the Games.
ChandlerMne got a reaction from konig in [OFF TOPIC] Coronavirus Pandemic
You said it nicely.
Cmon, 4000 deaths in 30 days, and people in Italy still dont get it? Stay at home, is it so difficult to understand???
I feel so sorry for Italy because i like it so much. And i am angry because this could have been avoided.
On the other hend, Italian and Montenegrin are same. Mentality is similar. I also see that my countrymen are doing the same.
