    Azerbaijan also got 0 points in the televote in their semi-final but still qualified thanks to 96 jury votes..... I didn't realise the AIBA were in the juries

    I know it's late replying to this now but I am just going through the thread to gather stats for the TISC history thread and I thought this would be an interesting one to check out:
     
    Having 8 nations still pointless after 6 rounds of jury voting is on the upper end of the negative scale, but it isn't in fact the record. TISC Open 2015 takes that unhappy crown with a whopping 10 nations still pointless by that stage in the voting! TISC Open 2016 on the otherhand was very generous in its points distribution  as every single nation was off the mark by the time jury 6 finished voting!

    There are more stuff left to update, but here are the updated all-time Grand Final and Team Challenge medal tables.
     
    Spain became the 24th nation to get onto the podium, and 12th to win.

    Ireland did two birds with one stone. They picked up the only missing color for both Grand Final (silver) and Team Challenge (bronze).
     
    No nation has won their first team medal in Hungary. We are still at 43 all-time.

    btw nice article about participation
     
    Importance for further development
    For first timer Algeria, being present was very important. “The participation in this Development Cup was massive. We really needed this boost,” confirms Karim Kerbouche, from Team Algeria. “Just before we became IIHF member in 2019, we were on a peak with the Algerian government paying attention to us and willing to fund and building our sport in Algeria. It had taken us some years to get this recognition and support. It resulted in government funding for a kids’ program, an ice hockey school on the sole ice rink in Algeria, a rink suited for 3-on-3 games situated in a shopping mall in the city of Setif. Unfortunately, Covid happened some three months later, and everything went in lockdown like in the rest of the world. As a result, our local hockey program went in hibernation for two years. Hence, we needed this Development Cup to get back on track and rekindle the attention of the Algerian government to restart the aid they were providing for us and helping us with the ice hockey school in Setif and for participation in tournaments abroad like this Development Cup.

    “I’m very happy with the outcome. I didn’t expect we would win the tournament. We had 10 plus guys born in Algeria. And we bring as many players as possible back to our project for the kids. So, from that side of things, our two victories were amazing. The tournament gave us the opportunity to play against European nations, which was a first for us and win against one, which was big for us. And then of course the historical game against Colombia. An African nation playing ice hockey against a South American, that’s material for the history books of ice hockey. It’s an honour to be part of that history. And it’s definitely interesting, it’s proof ice hockey has become a global sport.”

    Hey beautiful people, i am very disappointed, that i had to miss the contest, but something unexpected came up this past week. And it was another fantastic and enjoyable contest by the looks of things.   Spain with a commanding win to my biggest pleasure, as it's probably the country to which i have given the most points in all of my participations. There is always something to their songs, that resonates with my taste.   Well deserved win for @Cobi and very much looking forward to his hosting next time. 
     
    Also, big applauses for @Vektor for his tireless work these past few months, from stepping up hosting, to organizing and executing the contest perfectly.   
     
    Great effort from my team members @OlympicIRL @Griff88 and @Illya on getting a bronze medal.  Especially after stumbling in the first round, that was some fight through the repechage rounds! The historians will speak on this, but i think this may be the first time i get a medal in the music contests 
     
    And finally, but not least, big Thank You to everyone who enjoyed and/or voted for the BG song. This time more people than usual and it's nice to be on the left side of the table for a change.  Virtual bears and cookies for all

    I offer my congratulations to @Cobi on Spain's win and to @OlympicIRL, @Cinnamon Bun and @Quasit on their medals. 
     
    I want to thank everyone who voted for Greece, I'm glad you liked our song.
     
    Also, thank you to our teammates in Gyor Rivers who helped us earn a 4th place in the team event. We were close to a medal there, but 4th place is a great result.
     
    And of course, a huge thank thank you to @Vektor who hosted a great contest throughout.
     
     
    This is how I voted.
     
    I can say I voted for all top three songs, but as I was the only one in our jury who voted for Spain and Ireland, my points were not enough for these songs to receive any points from Greece. 
     
    Great Britain got our 12 points by earning a total of 21 points, 7 per jury member and that's despite @Makedonas didn't give any points. 9 points, 3 per jury member were needed for a 12th place finish.
