    no surprise for the win of GB. Since the best players of some countries arent able to play because of their teams euroleague obligations (not to mention NBA as well) , this system favors the theoritically "weak" countries. We saw some countries like Latvia with great players to stay out of big competitions (world cup)

    it seems they saved doping samples from other competitions as well!

    list of doped weightlifters from 2012 European Champs in re-testing, some of these guys were already caught for other doping violations.

    Yeah. Nobody cares about winter sports in Spain and the Winter Olympics would be a waste of money. The Summer Olympics would have much more popular support if they don't spend too much money building new venues.

    We can say that with the win against Uruguay , Argentina is already in Qatar. Equador, Colombia and Uruguay will fight to avoid the play-off place
