    Federer91 got a reaction from CCB in Men's Handball Qualification to Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games   
    We have a saying here: "It's harder to get to the Olympics, than to compete at the Olympics." And you can say that to individual sports as well.
     
    It's a very thin line on how to find the perfect balance of strength and presence. As a fan, i wouldn't want my team/athlete to go to the OG and compete yet again with only the same European teams/athletes that we always play.  I'm much more interested in the rare times we play against a non-European country, because it's a luxury for us.  
     
    That being said, many qualification systems have been preposterous for years and screwing great teams, outside the representation criteria. Continental qualifiers should remain, but they should never, NEVER be after the World qualifier. (prime example volleyball, every single cycle..) They should always be the first ones and then let the best of the rest have a fair shot at a quota.
     
    Also, one thing that i never see being mentioned is the damn team host quota. With only 12 teams it's completely unnecessary to give a free pass everywhere, just because you are the host. Given that the OG are hosted only by big countries, it's an almost given that they would qualify teams either way. It won't make or break the interest, if they don't have a place in every single sport, in every gender. 
     
    16 teams would be the best option for enough representation and more strong teams not getting screwed, but we all know, that is the IOC nightmare. They would prefer to have 50 sports with 10 people, not named athletics and swimming.

    All of our experts have been saying how stupid the scoring system has been been in the Groups. On friday our girls got a record breaking for the sport score of 44.150 on the 5 balls composition. And they were saying that things can go even higher, because there are loopholes in the system. It would be possible when Russia takes notes on what we did, that things can go up to 50 points eventually.
  13. Wow!

    It's quite a surprise i would say. It's the final round and i don't know, if the others are more tired, but she usually doesn't ski that fast. Btw, this is the first top 8 finish for a BG woman, since Oslo in 2006.

    A few words on our team and chances. I thought before, that we could better our Rio result, where we had 11 quotas, but now i don't see it happening at all. Given that in Rio each weight had on average 20 competitors, while now they are only 16 is a big hit to middle of the road nations like us.. With only the top 2 earning a place, the draws will be monumentally important as always.
     
    I'm much more confident in the women, so i'll start with them and do the men later today. 
     
    50kg - Miglena Selishka - 95% - Our safest bet in a category, where all the best Euro women already have a quota. Demirhan (TUR) strongest from the list.
    53kg - Sezen Belberova - 10% - Pretty much no chance with the likes of Orshush (RUS), Kaladzinskaya (BLR), Blaszka (NED), Mattsson (SWE) in the running. 
     
    57kg - Evelina Nikolova - 65% - If she is injury free, there is a chance, if the draw lands in her way. And this will be her only chance, as i'm certain for the World Qualifier they will choose Bilyana Dudova. Tough field with Bullen (NOR), Barka (HUN), Chumikova (RUS) and Gun (TUR).
     
    68kg - Yuliana Yaneva - 50% - Not sure, if this is the final decision, as Mimi Hristova is also vying for this category. 68 is not titular for either one of them, so a lot of weight play is gonna happen. Yaneva won very surprisingly that World Cup in December, so maybe that played a factor in choosing her. Still, there are a lot of big names in contention - Velieva (RUS), Tosun (TUR), Manolova (AZE), Sadchanka (BLR).
     
    76kg - Mariya Oryashkova - 15% - The girl with the biggest heart and desire to go to the Olympics. She is a 6-time World Sambo Champion, but just can't make the transition to wrestling.  She has been doing it for a few years now and i just don't see any progress. Just as i don't see any hope with the likes of Adar (TUR), Vorobeva (RUS), Marzaliuk (BLR), Solheim (NOR) in the draw.

    Mihaela Marinova - Fear Of Loneliness
     

     
    At only 22, Mihaela Marinova is one of the brightest artists in the Bulgarian music scene. First gaining notoriety in 2014, age 16, after appearing on the BG version of X-Factor, she has had hit songs in every single year afterwards. Her appearance in TV formats has almost unparalleled success:
     
    - 2014 - 3rd place - The X-Factor - Cut by the judges, just before the finale and the public vote for the winner.
    - 2017 - Winner  - Tu Cara Me Suena (Your Face Sounds Familiar)
    - 2019 - Winner - The Masked Singer 
    - 2021 - Currently leading  - Tu Cara Me Suena: All Stars
     
    I have chosen this song, because it combines many themes associated with 2020 and the fear of so many people of being lonely in one way, or another.

    Will they both be holding the flag? Will it be a relay? Will there be a clock to count, if they are holding it equally? Who is going to hold it at the top and who at the bottom? Will they have to cross hands? Has Covid ended and we can hug each other again? Are the IOC the highest paid morons in the World? Well scratch the last one, that is not really a question.

    Final Standing available here
     
    Gianlu33   Federer91  Speedy  
     
    A busy February for the predictors has reached its end. With the Nordic Skiing World Championships prediction contest now completed, the three medallists for this contest can now get honoured. The three medallists are @Gianlu33, @Federer91 and @Speedy. Big congratulation to all three medallists.
     
    On top of the podium is @Gianlu33. As the only predictor reaching a three-digit total with an impressive 103 points in total and only one of four predictors to have two perfect predictions through the contest. It's his first medal of 2021 and Italy's second gold medal already. A huge congratulation with the gold medal. Well-deserved!
    In second and securing the silver medal is @Federer91. Him and Gianlu33 was in a fierce battle for the gold medal with switching between which of the two who was on top. In the end it was just not enough for our Bulgarian predictor to be the victor in this battle. Still a very good contest overall with solid predictions and a well-earned silver medal. First of the season for him and Bulgaria. Congrats with the silver medal.
    Last spot on the podium goes to  @Speedy. After a successful Alpine Skiing prediction contest which ended with a gold medal, he can now proudly receive yet another medal as the first predictor to do so in 2021. It was a close race for the last spot on the podium between many predictors before the final day. With scoring four points and having two perfect predictions and most gold medals amongst all in the contest, it was Speedy who secured the bronze medal by beating @ady48 in a tie-break. Congratulation with the bronze medal. 
     
    Honourable mentions will this time go to these three predictors, @ady48, @Henry_Leon and @IoNuTzZ. With five points on the final day, it was almost enough to grab a medal for ady48. But as mentioned above he just missed it due to tie-break rules. However, a very contest for the established Totallympics predictor. In 5th place comes @Henry_Leon. Another very solid contest for the Italian and a very good start to the 2021-season. Might be one of the names to look for in top of the Individual General Standing. The last honourable mention goes to another Romanian predictor, @IoNuTzZ. Despite being one of the few in the top 10 without a single perfect predictions, he scored enough points throughout the contest to get a 6th-place and end in the top of the contest overall.
     
    Lastly, thank you to all who participated in this prediction contest. The prediction contests will take a break for the next couple of weeks, but we will be back with the Figure Skating World Championships prediction contest in the end of March. While on the subject, I would like to ask you, the Totalympians, for some help with making the entry lists for this contest. It would be around 12-14 favourites for each event and I would highly appreciate if someone here on the forum would be willing to give some of their time to helping me. You can send me a PM if you are interested to help. Any help I can get would be eminently appreciated. Last thing from me is that the General Standing and Medal Tables will be updated either tomorrow or on Wednesday. There have also been a slight change in the calendar as the Women's Ice Hockey World Championship has been moved to the beginning of May instead of April.
     
    That's all from me, your prediction contest manager, Wumo.
