    phelps got a reaction from maestro in How Many Medals do You Expect from Your Nation at the Beijing Winter Olympic Games 2022?   
    our NOC's boss said he's gonna be happy with 11 total medals (and at least 4 golds)... 
     
    where have I to sign? 
     
    frankly, I expect a big flop from our team, even worse than the "0 tituli" of 2014... 
     
    our main chances are women's downhill and super-G in alpine skiing, the women's snowboardcross and the women's 500m in short track...those are the only 4 medals I'd be really disappointed if we don't get them...
     
    anything else, it would be a pleasant gift...

    Lillehammer 1994...and not only because they were the most successful Winter Games ever for Italy...
     
    the overall atmosphere was amazing, by far the best of all times...especially in the outdoor events and at the Viking Ship (speedskating)...
     
    even the Ice Hockey Gold Medal match between Sweden and Canada was one of the best hockey matches ever played...for sure, the best ever played by (still) non-NHL players...

    Italy will use only 6 of their 7 quota in women's CC skiing...
     
    I think it's the first time we reject quota places despite having enough eligible athletes in the more crowded winter sports (in ski jumping we rejected 1 of the 3 quota places only because we don't have a 3rd jumper to send to China)...

    thank you!
    of course I haven't watched the event and I only trusted both the results page and the italian website OA, reporting the wrong results, too...
    what a shame for FIE! once again...they can't even take care of the final results of their top tier competition...
    I'm going to fix the results immediately...
  10. Wow!
    phelps reacted to maestro in Fencing FIE World Cup 2021 - 2022   
    This very weird. I'm quite sure France beat South Korea, 45-35 in the final. I checked the results page, all results seem correct, except this.
     
    Here is the video for evidence. I have timestamped it to play at France's winning point and if you go towards the end, you can watch the award ceremony, with France on top.

    talking about the new sports arena (going to host men's ice hockey at the 2026 Olympics) and the area where it's going to be built...
     
    it's near the site where sky Italia have their offices and studios, named Rogoredo...and it's one of the most degraded and dangerous places in Milan (it's closed to a place named "il boschetto dei tossici" -the drug addicted little woods- the main spot for that kind of illegal activity in town)...
     
    this is a presentation of the project (unfortunately it's only in Italian)...

    San Siro instead is one of the most appreciated residential blocks in town (even if the locals hate the stadium because there's always too much traffic and noise also late at night when there are football events and especially rock concerts)...

    yes, Grand Prix tournaments are the top tier of the world cup events...
     
    oh, yes...I was talking only of the women's foil discipline...
     
    if we look at epee and sabre, Canada has had some success in the past (especially at the beginning of those disciplines' era)...
     
    not sure about the men, though...personally, I don't remember any Canadian man on the podium in any of the 3 disciplines...

    imho, Maliszewska is the favourite over the 500m in short track...even more than the most anticipated Schulting, Fontana and Boutin...
    but you know...it's short track, where nothing goes according to logic...
     
    by the way, you didn't mention Aleksandra Krol and the guys (Nowaczyk and Kwiatkowski) in snowboard's PGS (more Krol than the guys, though)...and I wouldn't write their names off before the races start...

    based on a super quick (and therefore not so accurate) research, Harvey was already 3rd in the Shanghai Grand Prix event in 2018...that should be the first podium finish in the last 10 years for a female Canadian fencer...follow by today's result...
     
    however, I bet on her and Jessica Guo to improve that score in a very short time...
