    Yes, I've seen that, but apparently it's not true. There is a college volleyball (!) game in the Philippines that attracted more and also a world championship game in Brasil in 1994 like this calm and very rational tweet would like us to reminder.

    I have no clue. I know the sport had a rough time at Wroclaw 2017, but cutting a whole gender and a whole discipline seems harsh in that case. I’m sure it has to do with something else.

    Damn how fast people disappeared from here after the Olympics ended.   I too had a post-Olympics fatigue for about 2-3 weeks, where i didn't want to or watched much sports, but now things are getting back to normal little by little. But things are really slow here.

    Final Medal Table
     
     
     
    Comparing with 2016 (only nations in the top 30 in either edition), the NPCs which improved their performance in the rankings:
     
    2016 2020 +/- NPC 64 11 +53 74 22 +52 48 10 +38 47 18 +29 41 19 +22 43 24 +19 29 20 +9 33 30 +3 7 5 +2 15 13 +2 4 3 +1 8 7 +1  
    NPCs which ranked the same as in 2016:
     
    2016 2020 +/- NPC 1 1 - 2 2 - 9 9 - 16 16 -  
    NPCs which ranked lower than in 2016:
     
    2016 2020 +/- NPC 25 26 -1 12 14 -2 23 25 -2 27 29 -2 3 6 -3 5 8 -3 11 15 -4 28 31 -4 6 12 -6 25 31 -6 10 17 -7 21 28 -7 13 21 -8 19 27 -8 14 23 -9 22 34 -12 17 33 -16 18 35 -17 20 41 -21 24 51 -27 30 64 -34  
    Of course being higher or lower in the rankings don't always translate as a better or worse performance. Rankings can be deceiving, as Azerbaijan places 10th with only 19 medals (14 of those being gold) and France is only 14th with 54 medals (I'm sure they'll do fantastic in Paris). Compared to Rio, 8 NPCs continued in the top 10, with and out and and in. is the first host nation since in 2004 to not place in the top 10, but huge improvement compared to 2016 (no gold medals vs 13 golds now).
     
    and improved a lot, and even though they won less medals than in 2016 (18 vs 16 now), the great number of golds have placed in the top 20 for the first time since the 80s. Biggest disappointment should be with their worst ranking ever (aside from their first participation where they didn't win any medals). Tokyo definitely wasn't good for them as they also had their worst ranking at the Olympics since the 70s.

    Peter Genyn  defended his Paralympic 100m title earlier this week, but that was quite something....shortly before the race, when he got to his racing wheelchair, there were three (!) flat tyres and a broken frame, which could only mean a rival (or someone related of course) actively went and sabotaged his wheelchair  
     
    Good that whatever loser it was didn't win

    it's not that simple...
     
    it was closed in 2017 because the roof had major damages after a storm (it was raining down inside, just on the track)...
     
    then a fight between the local authorities (owner of the velodrome), the Italian Cycling Federation (those who were using the velodrome) and our NOC (the supervisor of all of our sports federations, the institution where formally the money given to those federations comes from -even if it all starts from the government, making funds available) started because nobody wanted to paid for renovation work...
     
    and since the track was dangerous because of the water coming down on it, a judge decided to put the velodrome under judicial seizure until all the required works were completed...
     
    as usual when the judges are part of the fight here in Italy, it took almost 3 and a half years to find an agreement between all the acting parts and 6 more months to complete the required work on the velodrome, but finally it became available for our NT to train just before the Olympics...
     
    now it should undergo some more renovation work in the coming months, so to be fully available also for some international competitions next Spring (knowing how things work here in Italy, I'm happy if the job is done by the end of the year 2022)...
     
    however, from next year on we should have a full time 250m track indoor velodrome available to our NT to develop some youngsters, hopefully not only in the endurance event...we need to get back to good level also in the sprint event sooner or later...

    Montichiari, near Brescia, eastern part of Lombardy (which actually is a 250m indoor velodrome, but it was closed for a couple of years until last spring because it was raining down the roof and because of some burocratic issues on permissions to adjust that problem...usual Italian troubles when it comes to construction work)...
     
    otherwise Wien in the cold months and on the many 400m outdoor tracks we have in Summer (mainly in Fiorenzuola d'Arda, near Piacenza, just a few kms south of Milan)...

    Bon, belle performance quand même, autant ce soir que sur l'ensemble du tournoi. On est la seule équipe perdante à prendre un set sur ces quarts (contre le plus gros morceau en plus). 
    On en viendrait presque à être déçu, on revient à 19-18 en fin de 2ème set et la grosse série au service qui met fin à la forme et aux espoirs français ... il y a clairement un manque de densité, autant physique que dans la profondeur de banc, mais ça peut jouer à un très bon niveau et tenir la dragée haute à la Serbie 
    Après forcément quand dans le troisième set la moitié de l'équipe est constitué de joueuses qui gagnent 2 matchs par an en Ligue A c'est un peu léger. Et malheureusement y'aura pas tant d'occasions que ça de jouer des équipes de cet acabit d'ici 2024. Il faut espérer une belle progression de nos cadres (et de toute l'équipe) en Italie et ailleurs, et de grosses phases de travail en collectif pour compenser le déficit individuel sur le top niveau.
    Sinon une qui m'a impressionné, je ne la connaissais même pas de nom avant l'Euro, c'est Rotar, 15 points aujourd'hui, éclipsée par Gicquel et Cazaute médiatiquement (pour le peu que ça constitue) mais elle a été sacrément solide sur ces phases finales. Globalement le souci français n'est pas vraiment en attaque.

    Bien sur, le chemin devrait s'arrêter là avec la Serbie qui s'annonce de nouveau. Mais on peut être raisonnablement confiant pour l'avenir de cette très jeune équipe. A Paris, où elles seront tête de série, l'objectif réaliste doit être de sortir des poules.
