    Let’s hope they get the commentaries sorted out this time!  Took them a couple of days in Tokyo.

    Was looking through a list of Britain’s winter & summer Olympians. As you’d expect, most are athletes/bobsled. Except Percy Legard - Modern Pentathlon 1932/1936 & Nordic Combined 1936!

    11 DNFs and Kolega gets 19th in the end

    So just another race which would have been deemed irregular if it was happening in Zagreb.

    4 DNF in 9 skiers. At this rate Kolega might still get a Top 20 @dcro
     
    Make that 5 DNF in 10 skiers.
  6. Wow!

    Coach left the German women's team and was hired by Russia.

    Rodeš tested positive, and thus joins Vidović who is still out with COVID since last week.
     
    Will we have any skiers left for Beijing at this rate?

    For a moment it seemed like Sics/Sics might walk away with WC title this year, against all the odds...
     
    But not to worry, all is well in the luge world. FIL just casually decided to annul Eggert/Benecken's DQ in Winterberg from almost a month ago. The leading gap is now smaller and Sics/Sics will likely lose their title today in St. Moritz.

    To be fair, Japan (and Georgia) can place better than Canada in three events. If Messing messes up, Canada can lose a lot of ground in one event, while the ice dance couple can only do so much (especially in the free dance portion).

    WCSL quotas are an easy fix. Extra places should be awarded based on Top 30 ranking only if the same nation has someone else with WCSL points. New Zealand would only get one female spot instead of three, and so on.

    Take a good look now because you are not going to see these outfits very often.

    Russia gold, USA silver. Could be vice versa.
     
    Canada could place from 2nd to 5th. 4th seems like the likely outcome.

    Lillehammer 1994...and not only because they were the most successful Winter Games ever for Italy...
     
    the overall atmosphere was amazing, by far the best of all times...especially in the outdoor events and at the Viking Ship (speedskating)...
     
    even the Ice Hockey Gold Medal match between Sweden and Canada was one of the best hockey matches ever played...for sure, the best ever played by (still) non-NHL players...

    This Leščinskaitė is what could have been if she didn't face various health troubles after her debut season 7 years ago.
     
    She is finally slowly getting back on track to where she used to be, which in turn is helping her progress and unlock her potential.

    Entry deadline is next week so I doubt they will decide anything before Streif.

    dcro got a reaction from Dennis in Beijing Winter Olympic Games 2022 Team Sizes   
    No updates are coming through from biathlon and bobsleigh, so I guess our team of 11 is pretty final. 6 alpine skiing, 3 cross-country skiing, 1 snowboarding, 1 short track.
     
    Pretty disappointing when you realize that Dutch NOC waiving their own selection policy reduced your team size by over 25%...

    Bach is a crowd though. 
     
    Surprised he is still not insisting to visit a random place in China before the Opening ceremony. For example, Tibet.
