    Yes.
     
    Worst ever winning height at U20 worlds: 4.20 m in 2000 and 1998 (the first two times this event was contested)
    Worst ever height needed for bronze at U20 worlds: 4.10 m in 2000 and 1998
     
    For comparison the marks that won gold/bronze at the last 3 U20 worlds and the result you would have gotten with 4.15 m:
    2018: 4.51 m, 4.35 m, 9th place
    2016: 4.55 m, 4.40 m, 7th place
    2014: 4.50 m, 4.45 m, 9th place
     
    At 2018 U18 Euros it took 4.26 m to win gold and 4.16 m to win silver. At 2021 U20 Euros it took 4.30 m to win gold, 4.20 m to win silver and 4.15 m to win bronze. I think this event clearly suffered from the absence of the german and american girls.

    Congrats! I don't think that those athletes will be competitive by 2024, but maybe in 2028 they could do some damage.

    I came up with a very long list, so i trimmed it down to only 100 athletes. I focused on U23 athletes in most sports (U20 in artistic gymnastics/swimming) who didn't win an individual medal in Tokyo and in my opinion have a good chance to win at least one in Paris.

    Germany with clearly the most medals (as usual) and the Netherlands almost nonexistent as usual (just to completely explode at senior level).

    Politico has written a piece that 20 years of American "gains" in Afghanistan will be (are being) wasted in 20 days Makes you wonder what all those billions were spend on in the end? The Afghan Army looks completely useless and it seems like Kabul will fall way sooner than even I expected. I don't even give them 2 months if Taliban keep going with this.

    Other interesting threads might be "Athletes who could write history in Paris" (for example Zaynab Dayibekova from Uzbekistan in fencing (has Uzbekistan ever won a fencing medal?) or Nicholas D'Amour from the Virgin Islands in archery) or "Which athletes are the most likely to defend their title in 2024?".

    Note: Obviously a lot of the names that didn't make the list very well could have made it and considering the number of sports i covered, it is very likely that i missed some names. In athletics and swimming especially there are tons of athletes who could have made the list as well (for example Franko Grgic, Yang Yunxuan, Merve Tuncel, Adriana Vilagos, Tara Davis or Jorinde van Klinken).

    I came up with a very long list, so i trimmed it down to only 100 athletes.

    I believe/hope you are trolling, but in case you aren‘t i will try to clarify the things you are having trouble with understanding:
    I am not angry about Germany not winning more medals, It only makes me sad to see people cheering for obviously doped athletes (who are coincidentally from the same nation as them). I have lost all illusions about sport and I certainly am not biased towards German athletes (you can go back and read what I wrote after the German women set a new world record in the team pursuit). I realized that people who follow sports at this level support doping and I will try not to watch any sports at this level anymore. It has become impossible for me to enjoy any performances, because I can’t stand the injustice anymore, regardless of the nationality of the winner. When you look at the medal table, you realize that mostly countries with very nationalistic populations (USA, China, Russia, GB, Hungary) are doing well and I don’t believe that this is a good thing. Sport in this form is used to divide people of different nationalities/unite against people of other nationalities and I don’t believe that this is a good thing. We saw this as well at the football European championships. Personally I believe that the concept of nationalities/nations should be abandoned and obviously this would also mean getting rid of competitions between nations.

    Kenya sweeping all short track medals at the next Olympics would be a smaller fluke than what Italy did here. Realistically even 1 bronze would have been an amazing result for them and now they already stole 4 golds. Very bad news for the EU, considering that Italy pays close to 200k for a gold and obviously isn’t able to come up with the money on its own.

    He's clearly hurting now but 3:11 lead with 6 kms left.
     
    If he hangs on he'll easily become the most anonymous Olympic medallist in Polish history. Right back to Fortuna 1972 indeed. Nobody knew Tomala before today.

    Poland, Italy and Netherlands with once in a century fluke performances. At least most of their medalists will be gone soon. Both Kaul and Schäfer could have sleepwalked to a medal without their injuries, Kaul probably would have even won gold.

    Disgusting performance by the German team so far, hopefully they will lose all funding. A bit surprising that Russian isn’t winning anything, given that other classic doping countries (Hungary, China) seem to have profited a lot from the pandemic.
