    Meanwhile, in unrelated news, the Belgian team has announced they will 'boycott' the next European Championships to be held in  due to fears of flooding. 😎

    That was one crazy semi-final, and our girls successfully won the silver. First WCh final in 17 years. Not much of a chance against the US, but at least we are finally there.

    Expected, but still unbelievable. Oh well, backwards courts making their country going backwards, what else is new.
     
    Next step is making sexual education illegal, because they obviously don't want people to be somewhat safe, and since the obvious goal is more misery all around, that'd be a logical next step.
     
    It's interesting how they do whatever they can before someone is born, but once a child goes to school, authorities are happy to let them serve as shooting targets.

    The entire Dutch team in the categories for 15 years and older will 'boycott' the European championships in  Dessel, due to the track being deemed unsafe.

    To be fair to Budapest, even though it might have been overkill in the grand picture, the event was excellent in terms of atmosphere and such, the organizers definitely did a good job.

    I assume this is not the women's race being cancelled, but simply being forgotten in terms of availability?

    It obviously used to be different, but because of recent years I hadn't gotten myself to watching the press conference out of pure fear of what we were going to lose this time. Now I was quickly watching though, and....it doesn't seem to be all that bad at all??
     
    Alpine mixed team gone, considering the non-stop criticism on that event I don't think many people will be sad about it...I know I'm not. And that's it in terms of losing events?!
     
    Four fewer spots in skating, alright. Some things added that don't really add anything, like the dual moguls events, alright. Doubles being split in men's doubles and women's doubles in luge...alright, I guess. I mean, it's way too early to have a competitive women's doubles event, 2030 would have been better, but there you go. Skeleton mixed team..fine, it doesn't cost us an event, so alright. Ski mountaineering as we knew, alright. Probably won't really watch it so I don't mind.
     
    Couple of spots fewer here and there, specifically skiing. Which is of course my main focus (women's cross-country, specifically), but overall doesn't seem to be too bad.
     
    I'm relieved

    Hope is not yet gone from the world. Especially the world championships no longer counting for the World Cup is fantastic. It's the world championships, after all, one fights for world titles there and for World Cup points in World Cup races.

    Nope, the women got the DSQ (jury need some time to take a decision), but the 4 man went in the wrong direction
