    Hey fellow Totallympians
     
    I have an announcement to make about my role as Prediction Contest manager and the future of prediction contests. From the beginning of the next year, I would like to step down as sole Prediction Contest manager. As my time at the university is coming to and, I would like to focus more of my time on applying for job positions from the beginning of next year. Also one of the reason behind my decisions is that I have been much less active in the threads since I became Prediction Contest manager. Especially during the Olympics with five prediction contests which took most of my time during the day. I felt quite stressed during that period. But I knew the period would be short and end a couple of weeks later. For Beijing 2022 I definitely need some help, as there would probably be more predicton contests than during Tokyo. I know my life will change with more time focused on applying for a job position. Plus I have a personal life that means everything to me and I would like more time for that. 
    I plan to still be part of the prediction contest group, but I would mostly only be able to manage 1 contest per month. I would therefore like to ask if someone or more people  on the forum could be interested in being my co-manager/s from the beginning of 2022. I would guide the person/people in how to run the prediction contests. Make prediction design, etc... And by time, that person/people will take over the role as manager/s.
     
     
    I hope by getting a co-manager/s, and by time stepping more down, I will find a balance to both manage my work and private life. Also additionally, have more time to be active on this forum in other ways. My passion is athletics and I want to be more active in that thread and also have time for especially winter sports who also gives me great pleasure to follow. 
     
    In short, I would like to seek for one or more co-managers at first by the beginning of next year. If anyone is interested to become co-manager or hear more about it, you can send me a PM and we can talk about it.
     
    I hope there will be at least someone who would like to take over my role by time. I really enjoy these prediction contest and I know many really appreciate the work me and all those before me have made to make these contests possible. I hope these contests can continue to bring together the community on Totallympics. 
     
    That's all from me,
    Wumo

    Hey folks 
     
    To those who might wonder why you haven't seen any updated standings from the prediction contests, I can inform you that I do update each contestant's points every day. It just take a lot of time to also adjust the standings each day for each contest. I will publish a final standing for each contest when it's over. 
     
    You can here see the provisional standings (not in order/ranked) of each contest.

    I really enjoy the miscellaneous contests because they allowed me to use my infallible method for predictions: when you know nothing pick the athletes with the most unexpected flag or the strangest names

    It will be a short presentation of the three medallists this time as my time is limited these days. A big congratulation to all three medallists of this prediction contest which are @Herberth10, @hckošice and @Agger
     
    The winner and on top of the podium was @Herberth10. A superb last day secured him a big point difference to the nearest predictor. This is his first gold and his second medal of 2021. A huge congratulation with the gold medal. Well-deserved!
    In second place and getting the silver medal was @hckošice. A silver medal is a great performance, but for the keen ice hockey fan, and with being in first place before the lat day, a feeling of disappointment is understandable. This is one of the contest @hckošice really wants to win and this time it was close. Maybe next year it will finally happen. With all this said, winning a silver medal is a great achievement. It's his first medal this year.  Big congratualtion with a deserved 2nd place and silver medal!
    Last predictor on the podium is one who has already been on the podium a couple of times this year. With some good Top 3 predictions @Agger secured a bronze medal in a close race with many other predictors. He was the third predictor in the contest who reached at least 500 points overall and this was just enough for him to take the last spot on the podium. This is already his third medal of the 2021 prediction contest season. One silver and two bronze medals. Big congrats with the bronze medal!
     
    The three honourable mentions for this contest will go to @juliosilva, @Ufilov and @Henry_Leon. Solid performances from all three.
     
    Lastly, thank you to all who participated in this prediction contest. This week the prediction contest for Men's EURO 2020 will start and tonight I open the thread for the 2021 Cope America prediction contest. I'm well aware of the uncertainty about the current status of the tournament and if it will go ahead as scheduled. We can only wait and see what the finally decision will be. One last thing, a reminder to all users. About a week ago the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Bet Contest Discussion Thread opened. You can find it here.

    Update about the Men's Curling WCF World Championship 2021 Prediction Contest:
     
    It has now become official that the remaining play-off games will go ahead: https://worldcurling.org/2021/04/wmcc2021-update/
    They will all be played today in a tight time schedule. Due to the even tighter time schedule now after the postponement, I unfortutanely have to inform that the Semifinals and Medal Matches will not be counted in the standing, as I see it, it would be too short of a notice for all contestants to make their predictions between rounds. It wouldn't be fair to me to expect everybody would be able to make predictions in the middle of night when it's Monday tomorrow. I'm really sorry for all the inconvenience these last days has caused and a prediction contest has to end in such a way.
     
    The top 3 predictions will be counted in the final standing and the complete final standing will be ready at some point tomorrow.
     
     I hope you all will understand this decision, or at least to some degree, and I'm sorry it had to come to this.

    EupenM   George_D  juliosilva  
     
    It was a superb performance by the Russian skaters in Stockholm at these world championships. In the prediction contest we also had superb performances and it was a close competition between many predictors. In the end, these three predictors ended with the medals. They are @EupenM, @George_D, @juliosilva. Big congratulation to all three medallists.
     
    On top of the podium and securing the gold medal was @EupenM. With eight gold medals and one perfect predictions through the contest, the numbers speak for itself. This is to my knowlegde the first gold and medal in any prediction contest for the EupenM. It's always fantastic to see new faces among the medallists. He secures France their second gold medal this year. A huge congratulation with the gold medal. Well-deserved!
    Securing the silver medal was @George_D. With solid predictions each day and being in the top of the standing, it is a very deserved silver medal for him. It's his second medal this year and the first of silver. Maybe soon he will take a step up on the podium and complete a medal set for this year. Congrats with the silver medal!
    The bronze medal was up fro grabs for many predictors. Three predictors ended with the same amount of total points, 57 points in total. But with eight gold medals and one perfect predictions, it was one of the top predictors for 2021, @juliosilva, that secured his second medal of 2021 already by winning the tie-break against @IoNuTzZ and @Dolby. Another great perfomance by juliosilva. He continues his great start of the season. Big congrats with the bronze medal!
     
    The honourable mentions will this time go to these three predictors, @IoNuTzZ, @Dolby and @Gianlu33. Both IoNuTzZ and Dolby were as close as they could get to win a medal by only losing on tie-break. It's very unfortunate when you miss out on a medal on this rule. However both predictors can look back on a great contest and maybe soon they will get their first medal of the season. In 6th-place came @Gianlu33. He needed a really good last day to have a chance for a medal. Unfortunately it wasn't enough this time to come on the podium for the second time in 2021. But another top place for him this year continuing his strong start.
     
    Lastly, thank you to all who participated in this prediction contest. According to the original calendar we would have a break for a month now after the women's ice hockey world championship was postponed to early May. But this postponement opened up for having another prediction contest in April. The men's curling world championship will begin this Friday in Calgary, so remember to make your prediction before the deadline and start of the first match.

    Speedy    Herberth10  George_D   
     
    The second and the first winter sports prediction contest of this season has now reached its conclusion. It was a close competition for the medals, but the three medallists are @Speedy, @Herberth10, @George_D. Big congratulation to all three of you.
     
    On top of the podium was @Speedy. With only one of the two perfect predictions in the contest and only one day with 0 points, the road to a gold medal was paved. A well-deserved gold medal. Congrats!
    For the second time this season, Brazil secures a silver medal. This time it was @Herberth10.  Solid predictions throughout the contest with only one day with 0 points, the silver medal was deserved. Congrats with the silver medal.
    The last medallist is our Greek predictor, @George_D.  For many days he was just outside the podium, but with Kristoffersen's bronze medal in the Men's Slalom and by winning a couple silver medals to break the tie with 4-placed, @juliosilva, he secured the last spot on the podium. Congratulation with the bronze medal. 
     
    Some honourable mentions go to @juliosilva with the unfortunate 4th place. Only losing due to the tie-break rules. So close to winning his second medal this year already.  @hckošice ended 5th, but was 2nd before the last day. He was the second predictor who got a perfect prediction, but also many days with no points. A place just outside the top 3 for the Slovak. Lastly a great 6th place for @Kirkpatrick. The predictor with most gold medals, 5 in total, but he was just a couple of points shy of winning a medal overall.
     
    Lastly, thank you to all who participated in this prediction contests. A busy February is in full swing with now the Alpine Skiing WCHs and the Biathlon WCHs prediction contests completed. This week a new prediction contest will start. The Nordic Skiing FIS World Championships 2021 prediction contest will have its first medal events on Thursday, the 25th. Don't forget to make your predictions before the deadline, February 25th, 12:15 (GMT +1).

    The third prediction contest of this season has now been contested. Yet again it was three predictors, @toulousain, @Monzanator, @Agger, who all won their first medal in 2021. Big congratulation to all three medallists.
     
    One of last season top predictors, @toulousain, is back on top of the podium. With one of three perfect predictions, the French predictor secured himself yet another gold medal to his Totallympics Prediction Contests collection. A huge congratulation with the gold medal!
    Poland secured their second medal here in February with @Monzanator getting the silver medal. Like toulousain, Monzanator was one of the few with a perfect prediction. He was very close to winning a medal in the Men's Handball WCH prediction contest earlier this year. With now his first medal of 2021, he is looking to once again competing for one of the top spots overall. Congrats with the silver medal.
    As the predictor with the most correct predicted gold medallists @Agger secured a bronze medal and a 3rd place in the overall standing. The Danish predictor had a great 2020 in Totallympics Prediction Contests. Maybe this the first of many for the Dane this season. Congratulation with the bronze medal. 
     
    Here are some honourable mentions. Firstly, a big congratulation with the 4th place to @Gianlu33. Not far from medal fro the Italian predictor, but the 4th place is just outside the prestigious medals. However a very good contest overall for him. In 5th place comes @tuniscof, The last of the predictors besides the top 2 who scored a perfect prediction. He took a big jump up the standing in the last days and got himself a noteworthy 5th place. The last honourable mention goes to anfamiliar name here in the start of 2021. Once again a top place for @juliosilva with a 6th place in the final standing. If he continues to get these great results, his chances to claim a podium spot overall for 2021 are good.
     
    Lastly, thank you to all who participated in this prediction contests. One prediction contest left in February and then it's on to March. In the prediction contest poll for March, the short track speed skating WCHs and the figure skating WCHs ended with equal votes.  I will make a decision this week which contest it will be. The prediction contest calendar will be updated soon with the prediction contests for the upcoming months.

    A big congratulation to the medallists, @Henry_Leon, @juliosilva and @varnoldr
     
    First gold medal of this season goes to @Henry_Leon. In top of the standing through most of the contest and with a solid point difference to the rest. A well-deserved gold medal!
    A very deserved silver medal for @juliosilva who was in the top 3 in the last days. It got very close in the end to keep the silver medal, but with one point down to the third place the second place was kept. Congrats with the silver medal.
    Last spot on the podium goes to @varnoldr. It has been very long since a Hungarian user has reached the podium in a Totallympics Prediction Contest. Before the final day nothing was guaranteed for the Hungarian predictor, but with solid predictions the bronze medal was secured. Congratulation with the bronze medal. 
     
    Some honourable mentions goes to @Monzanator, @Herberth10 and @George_D who gets 4th, 5th and 6th place overall.
     
    Lastly, thank you to all who participated in this prediction contests. As mentioned above, this was the first prediction contest of 2021. Tomorrow February begins and it will be a busy one for Totallympics' predictors with 3 winter sports world championships prediction contest coming up. The prediction contest for the FIS Alpine Skiing World Championships and the IBU Biathlon World Championships will open in the upcoming days. For the IBU Biathlon World Championships Vojthas will have the honor of running this contest.
    I will publish the first standings and medal tables for the 2021-season this week. Also on February 7th a prediction contests poll will open. All users will be able to cast their votes for the prediction contest of March.

    A very good second place for our Slovak predictor, @hckosice Making his nation proud in handball...prediction contests. Congrats with the silver medal.
    Last spot on the podium goes to @sami-eg who has been in the best part of the standing throughtout the contest. Not the best Top 3 prediction costed him the gold medal. Still a big congratulation with the bronze medal. 
     
    @ady48, @heywoodu, @Monzanator gets an honourable mention with a 4th, 5th and 6th place.
     
    Lastly, thank you to all who participated in this prediction contests. This was the last prediction contest for 2020.
