  1. I want men's K1 and K2 200m back in the Olympic program... immediately!!!
  2. I think many things would eventually change in 3 years time... becoming a standalone discipline, I guess there will be a major development and the results could be quite different from nowadays'... however, speed doesn't really anything to do with boulder and lead, reason why it was time to leave it apart and stop adding to the Olympic Combined (which is still a nonsense, but at least now it's better than the Tokyo version)...
  3. naaa, we're only missing Janja Garnbret and a couple of the top Japanese climbers, but the level is very good... actually, Grossman and Moroni put on a show earlier today in the women's boulder final, completing in style all the 4 sections to the top...
  4. here's better... https://info.ianseo.net/?tourid=519
  5. I'm sure there are a few in the heavyweights, but I don't have any name at the moment... I remember Ylenia Scapin in the late Nineties, early 2000's switching quite a few times from the -78kg (her "natural weight class") to the -70kg... she won more than 1 European and World medals in the lower division and twice the Olympic bronze medal in the heavier class (1996 and 2000)...
  6. The 4th game is now over in each of the 8 groups and 1 more of them is now over in terms of who's going to qualify to the knockout stage and who's going to end their trip in this year's CHL... Red Bull Salzburg and HC Bolzano are safe through the next round, meanwhile Frisk Asker and JKH GKS Jastrzębie are already out of contention... So, after 4 of 6 gamedays, the total number of teams already through to the knockout stage is 4 (1 each for ), meanwhile the teams already eliminated are 8 (out of 32, quite a high percentage tbh)...

  9. Group Stage Day 2, Part 1 Saturday 11.09.2021 - Make-up Games Results Group G 19:30 Rungsted Seier Capital (DEN) - HC Donbass Donetsk (UKR) 4-3 (OT) 19:30 Rouen Dragons (FRA) - KAC Klagenfurt (AUT) 0-4 Standing : 1.KAC 10, 2.Donbass 5, 3.Rungsted 5, 4.Rouen 4
  10. it's just game 1 of of a very long season...don't worry, at the end of the campaign we're gonna be at the bottom of the pile as usual...
  11. Junior Europeans, Day 3 Last day of the individual events at the Junior Europeans...and once again a good spread of gold medals, with 5 Countries winning 1 title each ( Georgia in the -90kg, Russia in the -100kg, Hungary in the +100kg among the boys; Germany in the -78kg and France in the +78kg among the girls)... This means that Russia win the final medal table (I'm not going to consider the mixed team event as part of this championship) with 4 gold medals ahead of France with 3, meanwhile 7 more Countries won 1 gold medal each... here's the results' recap... https://live.ijf.org/eju_jun2021/results
  12. I think she could become a dominating force also in that class... of course she has to put some muscles on, because in that class you need also a lot of pure strenght, it's not only about pure technique anymore (as it might be in the -48kg, where almost every player doesn't have enough room to work on anything but making that really light weight)... I guess it won't be a ready-steady-go switch for her, but surely in the medium and long terms it's the right move to save her from injuries and burnouts... personally, I'm against every excess in cutting weight...I see only disadvantages rather than benefit, especially if you want to have a long career...
  13. imho, it's not enough even the -52kg...she has to go up until at least the -57kg, where she would still be taller than most of her opponents, but she would also have some room to build some muscles and above all, avoid the excessive weight cutting before the competition as she has to do right now... in all the evnts she entered this year, she was clearly completely spent because of that...it's a miracle that she came home with a bronze medal from the Tokyo Olympics... and that's a shame, because she's so talented and beautiful to watch when she's in top shape...
  14. Junior Europeans, Day 2 Yesterday there was quite a good spread of winners in Luxembourg ( Romania and Russia winning the men's classes, Croatia and Ukraine taking gold home in the women's division), the only constant being the disappointing results from the most expected Italian judo players... we did even have 2 guys in the -73kg class semis, but they both failed in the clutch moments and ended up 3rd and 5th... here's the results' recap... https://live.ijf.org/eju_jun2021/results and don't forget that all the action is always live for free on Youtube...
