  1. Wow!
    CCB reacted to phelps in Tokyo Summer Olympic Games 2020 News   
    by the way, this is a clear proof of the Japanese hypocracy about the Games...
     
    the Olympics must go on behind closed doors, but their regular activity, Basketball National team warmup matches included, can be played with at least 50% capacity crowd...in the Tokyo Metropolitan Area, not on the Moon...

    At least 41 medals isn't as much as Gracenote gave . But there's still some really questionable ones like Sifan Hassan in all three middle/long distances and Maya Kingma winning the triathlon! Did the Brittish girls not compete in this year's world cups or something? I'm pretty sure a podium without Great Brittain is not going to happen in women's triathlon.
     
    I guess we were just too good in 2019-2021 competitions for these data driven predictions!

    I want to drop by and say hello and good luck to the Netherlands team in the 2020 Olympics.
     
    Looking at the qualification performances and rankings of Dutch athletes in various sports, I can see the Netherlands having possible their best summer games ever.
     
    I can see the Netherlands winning more than 10 gold medals, possible around 12-13 if things ago right of if their athletes can maintain their performances to 2019-2020 in sports such Cycling, Sailing, Rowing, Women's Handball, Athletics, etc.
     
    I also can see you guys winning around 30-40 total medals, which would be your best overall haul in a summer Olympics.
     
    I don't know what your local press say about your team in terms of medal expectations, but I want you to know that I have high hopes for the Dutch Olympic Team. Good luck and do your best.

    Ik heb me de afgelopen avonden uitgeleefd in Excel om een tijdschema te maken van (bijna) alle Nederlandse sporters en een aantal andere sporten die ik wil volgen. 'Bijna' omdat ik diverse voorrondes van sporten die me weinig interesseren oversla (schoonspringen, synchroonzwemmen, boksen) en paardensport volledig negeer.
     

     
    (28% zoom om alles in één 29'' scherm te krijgen)
     
    Lichtoranje = alleen NL als ze kwalificeren (zoals kwartfinales, halve finales)
    Oranje = NLse atleten (poulefase teamsporten, series, etc.)
    Donkeroranje = medaille evenementen (in geval van zwemmen/atletiek/etc. is het hele tijdblok donker ook al is er maar één finale van een minuut. incl. opening en sluiting)
    Grijs = geen NLse deelname, maar leuk om te volgen (triathlon, badminton, volleybal, sportklimmen, slalomkanoën)
    Het groene lijntje is 07:00 uur 's ochtends.
     
     
    Kortom: heerlijke voorpret gehad!

    CCB reacted to heywoodu in Poll 92/100 | Which are your nation's 3 safest medal picks for Tokyo?   
    Nothing is ever safe, but I'd go for this:
     
    1. Women's road race --> Basically all four women have an excellent chance to win the gold. I hope it won't happen, but even a double or triple medal win is not unrealistic (although of course it's the road race, a ton can happen)
     
    2. Women's time trial --> Basically the same sort of thing, although with Van der Breggen and Van Vleuten there's only two and there's always Dygert. I hope Dygert is all recovered and fit, in which case she's the clear favourite (but still a Dutch medal should be fairly safe).
     
    3. Women's 1500/5000/10.000m (whichever Hassan runs) --> She's a gold medal threat in whichever event she chooses to run, and a nearly safe medal bet as well. Gold is a different thing of course, but it's hard to imagine three women beating her.
     
    Bonus: Men's mountainbike --> A pretty open field, but a 'normal' Van der Poel really should be a nearly safe medal threat.
     
    Forgot women's field hockey, that should be a fairly safe medal as well. Same for certain track cycling events, but there we'll have to wait and see which super round wheels the British will show up with

    CCB reacted to Jinzha in Poll 92/100 | Which are your nation's 3 safest medal picks for Tokyo?   
    I'd say  has a few safe gold medal picks:
    Track cycling, men's team and individual sprint (Harry Lavreysen) Field hockey, women's team Sailing, RS:X men (Kiran Badloe)  
    Track cycling is a little hard to say because there has been so little competition, but they were far enough ahead of the rest that I'm still confident. And Lavreysen is still young.
     
    Some options that I consider 'safe medals', but not necessarily safe gold medal picks:
    Road cycling (women's road race and time trial) Mountainbiking (Mathieu van der Poel) Rowing (LW2x and M4x)

    It is nonsense that the protocols were made in November and December 2020. During the second wave. But since then, the behavior of athletes has changed completely, a million different competitions held under completely different rules. And now they are returning to the rules almost 9 months ago. Nonsense. Especially since most athletes are vaccinated,

    Dank voor je reply. Goed om te weten dat Discovery + dus alleen online is. Ik ga de komende dagen goed in de gaten houden of er wat bekend wordt, want die paar euro die het kost kunnen me gestolen worden. We hebben vijf jaar op de Zomerspelen moeten wachten, dus dat is een abonnementje zeker waard. 
     
    Qua ritme moet ik even kijken wat handig is: mijn partner en hond zijn ook partij hier in huis . Ik denk dat ik het tekort aan slaap ga oplossen met wat hazenslaapjes tussendoor en een vast tijdblok op bed (21.00-02.00) en dan maar zien hoe lang dat vol te houden is. Ik kan me van Rio (hoewel dat qua tijd natuurlijk de andere kant op is) nog wel herinneren dat ik daar vrij relaxed doorheen kwam. De week na de Sluitingsceremonie was ik echter geen cent waard op mijn werk. 
     
    Commentatoren ... tja ... voor sommige sporten is de Engelse of Belgische variant van de NOS echt beter. Zelf ben ik ook erg fan van de manier waarop de ARD en ZDF de OS verslaan. Dus regelmatig zal er een Duitse zender opstaan. Maar de NOS geef ik uiteindelijk toch ook vaak het voordeel van de twijfel, tenzij ik de stem van Arman Avsaroglu of Joris van den Berg hoor. Dan is de afstandsbediening snel gevonden. Overigens is de OS-site van de NOS vandaag live gegaan: nos.nl/tokyo2020
     
    Hoe dan ook, @heywooduen @Jinzha, alvast fijne Spelen toegewenst!! 
    Groet uit Oegstgeest!

    Update of my prediction from earlier this year:
     
    Archery: 0-1
    Athletics: 0-3 (was 0-2)
    Cycling road: 2-3 (was 1-2)
    Cycling track: 3-5
    BMX: 1-2
    Mountainbike: 1 
    Field hockey: 1-2
    Artistic gymnastics: 0 (was 0-1)
    Handball: 0 (was 0-1)
    Judo: 1-2
    Rowing: 3-5
    Sailing: 3-4 
    Swimming: 0-3 (was 0-2)
    Suprise medal: 1-3
     
    Total: 16-34 (was 15-33)
     
    Changes:
    Athletics: added Femke Bol Cycling road: another women's cycling medal. I really think they could get 3 medals in 2 events, Van der Breggen, Van Vleuten, Vos and Vollering are unstoppable (except by Dychert). Artistic gymnastics: removed Zonderland, I sadly don't see it happening anymore Handball: removed women's team, their preparation has been messy and results in friendlies disappointing Swimming: added a third potential medal for our contenders Kamminga (100m/200m breast) / Kromowidjojo (50m free)/ Weertman and Van Rouwendaal (10km open water)

    Dinja van Liere celebrated her selection yesterday like this.
     

     
    And today she finds out she can't go as her horse Hermes, is in fact, listed as German owned and therefore ineligible.

    That must be right, maybe I was only thinking it forgetting that it is possible for countries to only have 0-2 singles players but a full doubles team.
     
    In that case, disregard what I said about the Netherlands and I think also Croatia will benefit in men's doubles.
