    Cobi reacted to mrv86 in Diving FINA World Cup 2021   
    You may be joking, but the judges were not. Except for his 4th and 6th round dives, every other execution was far from the notes awarded. Same case for Goodfellow, today he wasn't as clean as yesterday, yet he was not penalized as he should when he failed, especially during the last dive.
     
    The opposite was the case for Down-Jenkins  who saw of his executions undeservedly scores.
     
    BTW, congratulations to García Boissier  for making it to the finals. He had very clean executions, and if not for the degree of difficulty, he could very well challenge for a medal.

    Yes, you will probably have 2 or 3 quotas. Both women, especially Wiet-Henin, are very talented and well ranked. In men, Ravet is very young and he won the European Championship a few weeks ago, so even though in his weight there are athletes with a better ranking, he could defeat them. Chellamootoo is one of the favorites, but there a few of good athletes and only 2 quotas, so the draw will be very important.

    will send two women:
    Adriana Cerezo (-49 kg) Cecilia Castro (-67 kg)  
    We already qualified three men through the ranking, so we cannot send more athletes.
     
    Adriana should qualify if everything goes right, and for Cecilia it will be harder, but she has some chances.

    Cobi got a reaction from Dnl in Olympics Heads to Heads? Who will get more gold medals in Tokyo? POLL No. 7   
    I voted for Qatar (although I think both countries will win one gold medal each and I would prefer Israel ahead in the medal table), Ireland (they will have at least two gold medals in rowing, while Portugal have a few chances, but all of them have strong rivals) and Ukraine (no doubt here).

    Cobi got a reaction from rafalgorka in Olympics Heads to Heads? Who will get more gold medals in Tokyo? POLL No. 2   
    I am not expecting more than 5 golds for Spain. We have a lot of decent chances to win medals (we will probably tie or even beat our record of 22 in Barcelona 92), but gold medals are very difficult for us. The biggest chance is probably Sandra Sánchez in karate, but being the Japanese her biggest rival I am not so sure if it's going to be gold or silver. We also have good chances in badminton (Carolina Marín), tennis (Nadal or the doubles), shooting (both traps and the mixed team with Fátima Gálvez and Alberto Fernández), judo (Niko Sherazadishvili), sailing (470W should be our best shot, but some gold chances also in 470M, 49er and 49er FX), canoeing (in Rio we had the surprise in slalom of Maialen beating Fox, so it might happen again with David Llorente or Nuria Villarubla. In sprint we will have some chances in men kayak in K4-500, but I think that Germany will take it), golf (Jon Rahm), taekwondo (same problem, our 3 men and Adriana Cerezo, if she qualifies this week, should get a medal, but none of them is the best of their category) and team sports (men handball, even though Denmark is the biggest favorite, and maybe men waterpolo, where we have improved a lot this cycle and we have already beaten Serbia and Croatia).
     
    In summary, I think that we will get more medals than Poland, but in golds Poland is the favorite unless we have a very good performance at the Olympics (or Poland underperforms).
     
    In the othe polls I am going with Iran and Sweden.

    But 24 of those quotas are reserved for the team athletes. If you are not a great power and don't have a competitive team, you only have 2 quotas by ranking (in Europe) and another one by the Qualification Tournament. For a small country in fencing like us is extremely hard to get a single quota.

    It doesn't make any sense in fencing to have a mixed team. They already tested in cadets and the Youth Olympics and it was a mess.

    Right, the team events severely limit participation in Fencing. If the FIE/IOC wanted to increase participation, they’d have to reform how quotas are distributed for teams events, or drop the team events all together.

    So, according to Perez: 
    “Nobody has yet paid the penalisation fee for leaving the Super League. We are almost all still in this, they have not officially left yet"
     
     
    You know, I was only joking with my theory that Florentino Perez had done this SuperLeague madness in order to get the money to buy Mbappé for Real Madrid, but maybe I was not that wrong after all!

    24th place for Spain but receiving points from 15 national jurors, which is not far from my personal record (6th place in the 2019 Open with 17 countries). As expected, the song is not good enough to be at the top of the lists (no medals and a 5th place as our best result), but it has managed to score a lot of low points, which is always nice. As I said this morning, I was afraid that nobody would vote for it given the high average quality of the edition.
     
    It has been a tough year for Spanish music, with trap and reggaeton being the most listened genres and sending those songs is very likely an invitation to score 0 points, so I just chose a typical pop song, hoping to do it decently. My goal for the Open edition is to get back to the top10. I will be sending one of the most popular bands of the country, but I am still undecided which song will be…
     
    Thanks again to everybody who has given points to Spain, especially @Werloc, @hckošice and @Wumosince it is the first time I receive points from Lithuania, Slovakia and Denmark. Hopefully, Romania, Greece, Canada, the US and the other Nordic countries will join that list soon .
