  1. Wow!
    Mkbw50 got a reaction from rafalgorka in European Games 2023   
    Countries much worse than Poland always sort these during events. In the Russia World Cup there wasn't any talk about homophobia, or any other issue with Russia. Even during the Berlin 1936 the Nazis removed all anti-Semitic signage in the city because they knew foreign journalists would be there. Any problem with LGBT will be pushed under the carpet while the games are in town

    Just wait until the Dear Leader hears about this.
    He will "express grave concern" about the "gender diversity, youthfulness and urbanity" of the IBA and then appoint a 12-year-old refugee to be President

    Totallympics continues to be a place that keeps the Olympic flame and love for Olympic sports alive. As the IOC is increasingly controversial and athletics and other sports seem more and more squeezed, we keep the love and interest up and everyone can contribute, whether they've been a member for years or days

    Well, where to begin…
     
    The forum stayed online another year thanks to @Sindo. It got a facelift thanks to the content generated by @Matej@JoshMartini007@Vojthas @Mkbw50 and others. Our results section grew thanks to the major contribution of @frantic13poland, among others. We celebrated another two editions of TISC under the guidance of @OlympicIRL, with wonderful hosts @Vektor @Hipooo. Our competitive circuit of prediction contests was once again successfully overseen by @Wumo, and our end of year awards revived by @vinipereira. Finally, the moderation team kept things (mostly) civil in the threads for another year against all odds. Hats off all 
     
    It finally felt like international sports returned to a semi-normal state this year. We celebrated another Olympics, World Cup, and numerous other events together. Unfortunately, it was also a year marked by conflict. Conflict between nations; between internal domestic forces; between users. It was certainly a year of highs and lows; from top athletes missing the Olympics due to Covid and other injuries, to Messi finally leading Argentina to a World Cup victory. Some of us spent time recovering from injuries and illness, while others celebrated bringing a new life into the world. Through it all, and not to lean too hard on the favorite cliche of the international sports community, we were united by sport. 
     
    Whether we were captivated or devastated, entertained or bored, overjoyed by victory or ostensibly angered by loss; users alike were connected by sport. We screamed, laughed, argued, celebrated, and debated like one large dysfunctional family; a brotherhood of international sports fans. I can say, without a shred of doubt, that my year was inextricably improved by the time I spent on this forum. If time is money, then joining the forum just over four years ago was one of my more sound investments. I’d like to thank all of you for your contributions to this forum. We’ve collectively grown such a wonderful, even if occasionally frustrating, community. 
     
    Additionally, many of you have been so incredibly supportive of my career as an international sports journalist. I can’t thank you enough for your support. I can only hope to repay you with more excellent content in the year to come. 
     
    So with that sentiment, let’s remember fondly the year we’re leaving behind, and greet the future with great enthusiasm. We’re now mere minutes away from the last Totallympics time zone joining everyone else in the New Year, so break out the confetti, libations, firecrackers, boomsticks, and cursed vuvuzelas. It’s time for one last celebration in 2022!

    Hi,Thanks for inviting me to the club. I have been looking at totallympics for a while and chose to sign up today. I love watching any sports although my favourites are swimming and tennis.
     
    Whenever there is a multi sport event on I watch obsessively and I will sit in front of the TV from the very start to the end of the session. 
    My favourite athlete is Adam Peaty and my favourite event to watch at the olympics is the 100m Breaststroke. Outside of swimming my favourite event is archery.
     
    I look forward to contributing to topics and keeping track of lots of different sports in this club.

    Here's an amusing blunder on the website - in the list of nations it has "World Triathlon" (using the code 'TRI') because some athletes go as independents (I remember someone was changing her designation from to or the other way around and midway through she had 'TRI'). Someone's put the code in and it's come up with the flag!
