It seems to me that another girl with the bib number 638 has been rejected and disallowed to run; judging from the colours of her singlet, she might be from Nepal ... poor girl ... any news about the reason ? Anyway great victory of Maslova; I never thought she could beat the naturalized Ethiopians and Kenyans.
I completely agree with my Friend INTERISTA (and evidently fan of the Olympic boxe): hopefully both Olympic boxe and Inter will come back ... "a riveder le stelle" (Dante, what a genious ...!)
Caro Gianlu, grazie ! I have tried to browse thru the UEG and FIG and YouTube, but nothing ! Grazie, in ogni caso ...
Isn't there any live streaming site for these morning and afternoon women qualification of the European Arstistic Gymnastics ? Thanks.
Sottoscrivo tutto e, vista la mia età "giurassica", tendo a ricordare e rimpiangere mitiche domeniche degli anni '70 in cui vincevano tutti: Thoeni, Panatta, Moser e, se invece s'era in estate, Mennea, gli schermidori, gli Abbagnale e le Nazionali degli sport di squadra, per non parlare di Agostini e della Ferrari (che è invece l'unica ad averci deluso oggi) ! Bando alla nostalgia, grande Italia e speriamo nelle nostre squadre e nei giovani virgulti dell'atletica ...
Well, I don't have the time to carefully check but I remember some of your sarcastic opinions (against Schwazer, for instance, who is a close friend of mine); I'm really not sure that, within a discussion group, you must not prove your opinion, above all if it's against somebody; really not sure at all (maybe within a tiny group of close friends but not here).
Dear Dcro, if your message is aimed to me,it's not well aimed; don't be mislead by the "newbie" title, as I am a subscriber since 2014 and ever since I have been almost daily reading many of the comments of you frequent posters; so, implying that the tiny number of active posts must be connected to the lack of knowledge of human habits of a 57 years old person, is at least imprudent; if, instead, I'm not the target of your irony, then sorry and ... "hvala" for your time (hoping that the Bakar bay is still wonderful as in the seventies when I was spending my holidays between Rovinj, Zadar, Biograd na Moru and Filip Jakov !) and Dobra Vecer.

Dear Pavlo, I have not jumped into any rushed conclusion ... it's more than three years that I "observe" many of those commentators and I disagree with your opinions about them: Heywoodu,OlympicsFan and Thiago are definitely smart,but they have the frequent flaw not to be able to prove their statements, besides not being balanced in their judgements and I do feel they adore (more than like) to provoke and this is not a site where everybody can provoke, insult or offend everybody else (otherwise we would subscribe to YouTube or other - unknown to me - sites). Dziękuję and ... ciao.
Dear OlympicFan, I fear that the one who should learn History is you, the REAL history (even of the thirties), trying to behave in a better fair-play mode and show some respect, if not for my "jurassic" age, at least for my (although scarce) world knowledge, as I have a Ph.D. in classical languages and Hispanic-American literature, I have been living many years in South-America and I can also read and speak your wonderful language, besides knowing very well your splendid Country; I hope you can help me in avoiding every time to cite the sentence of one of the most prestigious Italian sports writers - Gianni Brera - who once wrote something like: ..."it's true that the Germans are really the best in everything - athletics,football,philosophy,classical music,literature,organization - but perhaps their problem is that they claim that other peoples admit it ... bowing in front of them" ! Even your comments about athletics are often not inspiring for someone like me who have attended LIVE 7 World Championships and 4 Olympic Games and has been a subscriber of Leichtathletik for thirty-five years and member of ATFS... Anyway, be sure that I will answer in a placid way to every insult, but I will NEVER ignore any comment; wrong things must be fought-off, like the comment of ThiagoSimoes (who probably has not understood the meaning of "pontificatore"), who insults me ("cuzão", even if I don't have a big booty, is definitely an insult, as he might not remember that I studied Portuguese in my University, I have been living in Brazil for many years and I have a girlfriend of Minas Gerais - unfortunately not young and beautiful as the Heywoodu's one ... !-) Finally I would like to remind all my "pontificatori" that it's a good-natured "apelido" (epithet) and it's even a compliment (I call my girlfriend "pontificatrice"); once again, be sure that I will always reply WITHOUT OFFENDING, whenever I read some biased or offensive comment against me, my Country or some other Nation which does not deserve nasty words ! BUT I will definitely reply. P.S. Dear Heywoodu, I hope your Girlfriend brought you some "acerola" (great drink "laranja - your favorite colour ... - com acerola") and/or "açaí na tigela" !
It's always sad to be forced (unless I try to avoid this thread, but I cannot, as I am an old "jurassic" football fan) to read such offensive comments against other Nations or sportsmen: among the most zealous and biased commentators, there are OlympicFan, Bestmen, ThiagoSimoes and Heywoodu: I call them all, with a good-natured Italian expression,"pontificatori"..."Pontificatore" directly derives from the ancient Latin word "pontifex": it implies that someone is always busy in "preaching", besides being often sarcastic and sometimes offensive. They should also remember there's always somebody much older than them who could remind them about inconvenient mishaps, caused by their Nations sportsmen or idols or indeed by their ... whole Nations and I really would not like to reply to OlympicFan with something harmful; so it would be nice that he could refrain from offending the memory of two world cup victories in a period where there were no jokes at all, couldn't he ? One thing is kidding and teasing or expressing an opinion, another thing is stating something unproved. Otherwise I (all of us, actually) could unchain a long list of facts regarding German, Netherlands, Algerian, Brazilian (and many Countries more) athletes and their respective Nations, but that would be a pity for all of us !
Dear Friends, may I ask you whether I can somewhere find the COMPLETE results (not only the medalists ...) of some of the last ASIAN TAEKWONDO Championships (namely Astana 2010, Ho Chi Minh 2012, Tashkent 2014 and Ho Chi Minh 2018) ? I don't seem being able to find them within the usual specialized taekwondo sites (tpss.eu, mastkd.com, taekwondodata.com, ma-regonline.com) as well as the Asian Taekwondo Union one (frankly useless ...). I hope some of you can suggest better sites or ideas ! Thanks in advance and ciao, Fabio
Second consecutive ITALIAN TITLE ("scudetto") for my splendid tiny town LODI in RINK HOCKEY (very popular in a at least five Italian regiorns), thanks to the fantastic "en-plein" play-off serie of AMATORI WASKEN LODI against Forte dei Marmi; it's almost unbelievable that a little town like LODI is so good to earn two Italian titles in a row ! I'm overjoyed (in fifty-seven years of my life only three titles) and proud that just few days ago even my FANFULLA LODI (this is off-topic) has been promoted from E Serie to D (fourth tier) serie of the men's Italian National Soccer championships. LODI sugli SCUDI ! Too bad that RINK HOCKEY is not (yet ?!?) an Olympic discipline; shame on FIRS and CIO which allowed Skatboarding and not Rink Hockey and Speed and Artistic Skating ...
