    A somewhat underwhelming championships for
     
    Four medals including two which nobody really expected from Zdzieblo which artificially boosted the impression value. We still rule the men's hammer but cons outnumber the pros otherwise:
     
    Positives: healthy Ennaoui gets 5th place which pretty was in her ceiling on a global stage, Sułek beats 37 year old heptathlon NR and Skrzyszowska =PB which was lost amid insane 100H level.
     
    Negatives: No athletes in M shot put and W hammer throw. Swoboda just can't run under 11 secs outdoors. Missing W 4x400 relay final is criminal.
     
    Meh: Male pole vaulters are getting old, Andrejczyk can't stay healthy more than one season over a 4-year span (watch her struggle in 2023 again).
     
    Facts: Polish discus and high jump is more or less AWOL. It's not as bad as the women's PV post-Rogowska & Pyrek but it's getting there.
     
    See ya in Munich next month!

    Kudos to the girls, it was a very good effort against the US, I think this was the most exciting final they had in recent years and it was definitely the closest match for the US at this WCh. Maybe next time.

    This is sad to see:
     
    Kenny Moore   1972 4th place Marathon, 14th in 1968 age 78.
     
    Among other things: 
     
    "Moore spent several years working to try to free Ethiopian marathoner Mamo Wolde, the 1968 Olympic champion (and 3rd in 1972 to Moore's 4th). Wolde had been arrested by Ethiopian authorities who felt he participated in an assassination attempt against the country’s dictator. Moore and the IOC petitioned for his release, which occurred, but only after he had spent six years in prison."

    It's over. I can't even compute this. My parents weren't even married yet the only time Canada had qualified for the World Cup. Every qualification cycle was just more disappointing than the last growing up.
     
    But now is going to the world cup, almost certainly as the top team in CONCACAF. I can't believe it.

    A couple of recent passings:  Henry Herscovici sport shooter, competed in 1968 and 1972.  He was Israel’s flag bearer in the 1972 Opening Ceremony. Was 95 yrs old.
     
    Charlie Greene,    1968,   Bronze in the 100 meters, Gold in the 4 x 100  relay.  A few days short of 77.

    They finally got it right without acknowledging their error.  Porino should be better than this. (And he can't keep Slovenia and Slovakia straight.)
     
    Also, a nit that I've had throughout the Games - Yes, Wendy Holdener has never won a slalom, and they talk about what she is missing, but that can't seem to say it or don't know that Holdener has an Olympic gold medal from this event.
