    Personally I just made an example with handball because that's where the conversation is. I would say that handball has one of the best qualification systems, it's the best one can make when team sports are forced to have mandatory continental representation.

    Back in Seoul 1988, we had a good pair in canoe sprint K2.  Philippe Boccara et Pascal Boucherit were actually world champions in 1987 and from my understanding favorite to win the gold medal in South Korea.
     
    All good and well, except they didn't make the semi-finals, they ... felt asleep before the start of the race and came too late...
     
    Fun fact, France still has to win a gold medal in canoe sprint 32 years later

    what a pleasant surprise at the end, Khramiankou just beat Sharipov by a last second takedown. good challenge from the Belarusian coach. and Sharipov himself knew he lost the match even before the final confirmation. I think Tedeev (Russian FS head coach who was absent here) is going to kill him right at the airport he better takes refugee in Hungary
     
    and Azerbaijan lost another "supposed to be" easy quota. this time to Germany, grandpa Magomedov gassed after 30-40 seconds and the German guy pushed him out of the mat like 100 times.
     
    interesting point, only 1 of 12 seeded wrestlers qualified for Tokyo (Vangelov) that says enough about the seeding system.
     
     
    the best wrestler of the day: Khramiankou

    María Xiao was born in Barcelona and has lived her whole life between Spain and Portugal, so she is 100% Spaniard. We also have a junior girl called Sofía Xuan-Zhang who was born in Cartagena (Murcia), so writing a comment like that based exclusively in the surname of the girl without knowing her story is kind of disrespectful... 
     
    It is true that we have had a few Chinese players representing Spain in the last decade (Yanfei Shen or He Zhiwen who played in London and Rio and arrived to Spain because they were paid by the clubs and the federation made them an offer to join the national team), but right now all of our players have been born and/or raised in Spain.

    The main point here being the score of the guy who held the office so far : 3.2 %  which tell you everything you need to know about the quality of his presidency.

    J'attendais une perche pour y venir  Jeu de mot avec la perche puisque c'est une des disciplines où se recyclent bon nombre de gymnastes (surtout les filles) 
    Je sais qu'il existe aux USA et Canada des plateformes où plusieurs dizaines d'athlètes, de niveau et d'âge disparate, peuvent passer des batteries de tests assez larges. Ceci permet de détecter des potentiels talents dans un certain nombre de disciplines. Evidemment on ne décèlera pas un sabreur de génie avec de simples tests d'explosivité, par contre c'est assez utile dans des sports assez proches comme le cyclisme (surtout sur piste ou BMX), l'aviron ou le patinage de vitesse, mais aussi le rugby à 7 (pas la même logique de recrutement qu'en France) ou typiquement donc, le skeleton  La néo-recordwoman du monde du 200m lancé, Kelsey Mitchell (bien aidée par les 2750m de Cochabamba certes), est issue de ce programme. 
     
    A l'heure où on nous bassine avec le langage du néo-management, typiquement le XV de France qui n'a que les mots "passerelle", "haute-intensité", "haute-performance" à la bouche, comment se fait il qu'il n'existe pas un tel programme qui mutualiserait les fédérations ? Certains sports individuels auraient tout intérêt à ce que des jeunes athlètes ayant fait le trajet vers les sports co, sans grande réussite, saisissent leur chance là où est leur "vrai" potentiel. Exemple assez connu, Mathilde Gros, qui aurait sans doute végété en équipe espoir de je ne sais quel club de basket moyen, si elle n'avait pas testé un Watt-bike par chance

    Post qui sort de nul part mais ça me trotte dans la tête depuis un moment et je n'arrive pas à comprendre 
     
    Comment est-ce possible que la France soit autant inexistante en bobsleigh/skeleton/luge ?? On est un des seuls pays à avoir une piste de bob fonctionnelle et pourtant c'est le néant absolu niveau représentation sportive. Nos rares représentants sont le fruit de la chance/détermination, un pilote originaire de la Plagne qui réussit à agréger une équipe (Costerg, Boch dont le père et le grand-père pratiquaient déjà le sport, Bessard en skeleton dont le père est directeur de la piste). Si on a encore un bob en CDM c'est parce que Romain Heinrich a fait sa transition vers le pilotage et investi à fond dedans, sinon ... Cela dit quelques jeunes pilotes semblent être en formation, et avec l'arrivée du monobob le "projet" a des chances d'aboutir (à son échelle).
    Après je veux bien que le bob ne soit pas une priorité avec peu de moyens (et d'ambitions), ça coûte cher, il faut non seulement un pilote mais l'équipe autour, bref c'est long et fastidieux à développer alors que la concurrence mondiale est quasi injouable (l'Allemagne pour faire court). La luge est individuelle, mais la tradition semble donner une avance trop considérable aux grosses nations, d'autant que tout se joue sur le pilotage ... Mais en skeleton ? C'est un sport récent, on voit qu'aucun pays n'arrive à dominer la discipline, pas même l'Allemagne, donc la porte est ouverte. La spécificité du sport mélange un peu luge et bob, l'avantage étant que le coût matériel est humain est plus faible qu'en bobsleigh, mais la manière de s'élancer octroie une part très importante aux capacités physiques de l'athlète, par rapport à la luge. C'est typiquement le sport "facile d'accès", même si le nombre de médailles est faiblard pour parler de low risks, high reward. On voit bien que plusieurs pays investissent dedans, en premier lieu la GB, qui n'a pas de piste. L'Italie n'en a plus mais aligne les athlètes comme des petits pains. La Corée, inexistante, a trouvé sa pépite avant ses J.O et est allée chercher l'or. Même l'Espagne a réussi à faire descendre 6 athlètes au niveau international cet hiver ! La Russie utilise la technique du "trouve moi un sprinteur, je lui apprends à piloter", est-ce trop dur à mettre en place ? Faire de la publicité autour des tests nationaux (pas l'impression que ça attire grand monde), venir démarcher des espoirs déç(h)us, les essayer, réussir enfin à ramener une médaille pour la FFSG

    Thank you for your great insight @hckošice I was also surprised by how cheerfull the crowd was during that last game, cheering for a nation that didn't exist anymore. Not so many slovak flags in the stands neither...

    Exact.
     
    In fact both parts agreed to start competing independently in all sports right after the dissolution,
     
    but there was also one problem, in football. especially the 1994 FIFA WC in USA, the qualifiers started in 1992 with former Czechoslovakia still existing. but it was already known that only until the New Years Eve, so FIFA had to decide and formed a new team
     
    the RCS (Representation of Czechs and Slovaks)
     
    RCS (The teams sadly had no flag nor nations symbols) just a white flag something like today Russia in the world championships. Both anthems Czech & Slovak were played before the games. 
     
    RCS was the very last team representing Czechoslovakia in any sport.
     
    Fun fact the team was just one single point from qualifying to the world cup in USA. imagine that 1 and half year after the country ceased to exist "Czechoslovakia" could still play together in a international event.
     
    Many many tears were in Bruxelles after that 0-0 tie the 17th November 1993.
     
    One chapter of our common history definitely finished, 11 months after the dissolution of Czechoslovakia
     
    Some polls said that more then 60 % of people were against the split, sadly the fucking politicians did not allowed any referendum and decided a couple of months before the 1993 new year about the break-up
     

     
     
    Anyway one other team named Czech and Slovak Republics also existed and played the U20 Ice Hockey team during the 1993 World Juniors, the tournament was held as usually during the christmas holidays, the team started as Czechoslovakia, the 30th December 1992 played 1-1 with Russia but since the 1st January suddenly lost its flag, nations symbols, anthem and was renamed Czech and Slovak Republics and the 2nd January defeated Japan 14-2

    A bit OT, but I was wondering what was the last team or athlete that have represented Czechoslovakia in an official competition ?
     
    I've just learnt that the football team has represented the defunct nation under the name 'Representation of Czechs and Slovaks' up to late 1993 (1994 WC qualification)
     
    The last home game of RCS in your hometown
