  1. It's the first time in 12 years that German women managed to qualify for EuroBasket. While it's nice to see progress, a qualification for the OQT would be a HUGE upset. Moreover, our best player, WNBA star Satou Sabally, already said she'll be off for the EuroBasket in order to focus on WBNA season. So, thanks for your believe in the German team, but honestly a qualification for OQT is unlikely (not to be speak about actual qualification for Olympics). ;-)
  2. That might be true to some degree.. but the difference to all wars somewhere in the world in recent history is that one land is stealing territory from another here.
  3. In the end, there is a likely scenario where either Russia or Ukraine will compete at the Olympics. If Ukraine threatens with boycott, then we just say 'sorry Ukraine, your decision'? This is gonna be a total shit show, mark my words
  4. This is absolutely the right path to ruin and spoil the Paris Olympics in advance. The Games will be overshadowed by discussions over Russia because there is definitely a probability that Ukraine will boycott the Games. And if they do, there will be definitely pro/con-discussions about further boycotts. I am desperately destroyed over how IOC and some NOCs can be so stupid to take this risk. Actually, the French Govt. should be interested in clarifying this issue as soon as possible, i.e. before world's mass media start to notice this.
  5. Seriously, did you expect any other reaction? Talking about any possibility to have RUS athletes at the 2024 Olympics NOW is so out of place. The IOC has to end this discussion or the Olympics will be overshadowed by it.
  6. Well, the news of the exclusion of RUS and BLR came only a few hours ago. International boards and federation do not work like social media - they need to come together in order to discuss and decide about this (and I guess they need to contact FRA and AUT, who also have to formally decide about that - likely - invitation). So, even if I hate how reluctant and slow IOC and most federation operate, I guess we have to give them at least some days to decide about the further proceedings.
  7. For the foreseeable future it is dead. No chance for it, at least as long as Russia won't leave the Ukraine alone. Nord stream 2 going into operation would blow up the current German government immediately. Even Gazprom-Gerd (who btw resides 100 metres from my flat, I am seeing that moron every now and then in the super market) has not such power to revive Nord stream 2 in the current situation.
  8. The idiotic from the start project of Nordstream 2 is officially dead, thankfully.
  9. Nice to see that Helen Hoffmann can confirm her results from Alpen Cup Junior Races even when athletes from Scandinavia and Russia are at the start. That's a very nice success for one of the biggest German talents in Nordic sports.
  10. In January, the first World championships for Women's Doubles were held. 14 sleds from 9 countries entered. You can absolutely argue that it's too soon for being an Olympic discipline as there are still huge differences between the best and the middle class doubles. However, with 4 years in before the Olympic debut, Women's doubles would not be the discipline with the shortest time span between first World Championships and Olympic debut - thinking of Monobob or 4x400 Mixed Relay in Athletics. However, I'm pretty sure that both Women's doubles and Nordic combined (Women's singles and Mixed relay) will be added. Hope they get rid of the Luge Team Relay, never liked it (won't happen, I know).
  11. Absolutely! Moreover I am optimistic that the Paris Olympics will have a special and truly Olympic atmosphere (so will Cortina, too) and, honestly, this is all I am longing for after the last couple of OG. Also I hope that I will be finally able to witness one OG live in the stadium
  12. Good that it is finally over. Really looking forward to Paris and Cortina!
  13. 4-0, no more Slovak nightmares to be expected. Congrats @hckošice! I guess the first Olympic medal for SVK in a team sport?
  14. After all, I think nearly all the athletes that had to go into quarantine in Beijing were not able to be competitive in his/her event. Riiber, Ilves, Frenzel, Seegert... did I missed someone?
