    Dunadan got a reaction from thiago_simoes in Summer Olympic Games 2024 Sports Programme   
    I think Dunfee and other top racewalkers have been out of the loop for years. They knew their event was going to be cut, they should have tried to do everything they could in order to show that racewalking deserved one more event. What they did was continuing to oppose the introduction of any kind of technology that would have brought a bit more credibility to the judging and accepting to star in those ridiculous 1 km runner vs walker events. They should blame themselves before crying foul.

    Dunadan reacted to Wumo in Alpine Skiing FIS World Cup 2020 - 2021   
    As some of you have maybe seen, FIS has launched a Prediction Challenge for this season's World Cup. It looks to be about predicting the winners and predicting other outcomes and questions. At the moment it looks like it's going to be focused around the Alpine Skiing WC, but I have read that maybe the Cross-Country Skiing WC and Ski Jumping WC will be included later. 
     
    I have created a private league for users on Totallympics:
    https://predictorchallenge.fis-ski.com/#welcome/register/?parrain=774849w&ligue=279&mdp=X8TID
     
    You should be directed to the league by clicking the link. You should probably create an account first. 
    League name: Totallympics
    Password: X8TID
    In case the link doesn't allow you to join the league

    Indeed, races should only be held in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, all almost covid free thanks to their self-disciplines. Let's just scrap races in this mafia driven country , I'm boycotting them and watching Paris-Roubaix

    Cuban star Melissa Vargas, one of the best opposite hitters in the world, become Serbian citizen. She will get the right to play for Serbian women's national team from 2022.

    @Wumo  So, everyone who picked Roglic before can "pick" Pogacar as the overall winner now? That kinda ruins all the prediction value?

    Really curious what Michael Obasuyi will do, considering the great showings of Remco Evenepoel and Wout van Aert so far!

    14 days of tennis action from New York has come to its end.
     
    With two fantastic last days, @Dunadan goes from a place outside the podium to secure the top spot. Had Thiem not won the men's final, Dunadan would had only ended 3rd overall. It's his second medal and first of gold in this 2020 Totallympics Prediction Contests season. What a comeback and a huge congratulation with yet another win and medal, @Dunadan!
     
    Another well-known name in Totallympics Prediction Contests, @africaboy, was so close to win his second contest this year. He has been in the upper part of the standing since the beginning and was in the leading spot before the last day. He couldn't hold his 1st place overall, but a well-derserved silver medal for him. Congrats with your second medal of the year and yet another place in the best half of a prediction contest, @africaboy !
     
    Romania gets another predictor among the medallists. @ady48, who have been placed 3rd overall in many of the last days, secures himself a nice bronze medal to his prediction contest medal collection. First medal of the year for the Totallympics Prediction Contests veteran. Congrats with the bronze medal, @ady48!
     
    @George_D was in front throughtout most of the contest, and he seemed to be a solid candidate for a podium spot. Unfortunately for him, his Winners and Finalists predictions didn't go his way, and he had to settle with the first spot outside the podium. However, a very good contest from his side and hopefully he can secure himself a medal in a later contest this year. An impressive debut for @Vic Liu in Totallympics Prediction Contests. A 5th place is something he can truly be proud of. Last honourable mention goes to our Slovakian predictor, @hckosice. Two incredible last days in this contest secures him a place as 6th overall. Well done!
     
    A huge thanks to all the users who took part in this prediction contest. I know you all have probably spend hours to make your predictions for the matches in the first rounds. This was also the first Grand Slam tennis prediction contest in a long time. I hope you have all fairly enjoyed it. I plan to repeat this for the upcoming French Open/Roland Garros. I will probably do some few adjustments to the format and the rules. 
    Lastly, we go into the third and final week of the Tour de France. It's very close in the prediction contest. Every single point will be important for the contestants in their pursuit of a Top 3 spot.
     
    That's all from me, your prediction contest manager, Wumo.

  10. Thanks

    It's written above that predictions starting from R16 could be made round by round, it's not "allowing edits because the favourite lost". And I don't see any difference between editing a post round by round and making a new post for quarterfinals, then another one for semifinals and another one for the final like it was done before.

    Kick all these teams out of the playoffs and be done with it. These are the same players who would beat the shit out of "social injustice protesters" if they came too close to their car.

    Probably no one...I am afraid the pandemic will slow down in the coming months and then restart forcing the IOC to cancel the Olympics.
    Also, we have to see how the qualification will work in many sports first.

    Plot twist: the team is (more or less) from Washington D.C. so it will be named Washington Columbians, with Columbus in the new logo.

    There was talk about droping lightweight events in rowing and replacing them with Coastal Rowing,  I would absolutely LOVE.
     
    Also the new sailing event that was aproved seemed dope. I hope those changes happend.
     
     
    Some events added last time where a mistake: swimming 1500 and 800, mixed judo team, even BMX freestyle witch I love seems out of place with that short field.... I hope they get ride of those.
     
    And I migth be controversial but I wouldn't mind the six team events in fencing getting droped and just do a all around team event for each gender.
    Also team Eventing and Dressage add nothing to the table. Drop them and cut quotas: Two horses per country in each event max.
     
    Also, I would rather had 2 per country in athletics than them droping any event.
    And in cycling Men's road race field is way to big and absurd, cut a lot of quotas from there.
