    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.

    Apostolos Christou with a CR of 52.09 (previously 52.26) in the men's 100 backstroke semifinals 
    Obviously broke his own NR as well (previously 52.77) 
     
    Really hoping he can win a medal here, although last year at the Euros he only won bronze with 52.97 after swimming 52.77 in the semifinals (which would've been enough for gold in the final...)

    So finally let's share some thoughts on my Munich experience.
     
    First of all, horse shows in Germany are huge. Pferd International in Munich specifically is much bigger than it ever looked on stream. There were so many stands with both merchandise and food, and the showground was quite large in itself. The crowds were huge every day, but especially on Thursday during the Bavarian holiday. There are horses all over the place, and there are no paved pathways (everything is covered in mud or grass, which turned out to be a bit of an issue on the rainy Sunday).
     
    Pferd International hosts dressage, jumping, vaulting, para-dressage, show program and working equitation. As I also had some other plans in Munich, I mostly ended up following the dressage like I planned. After all, it is traditionally the highest quality event in Munich (5* competition, as compared to jumping which is only 2*). I caught a bit of jumping, show program and working equitation as well. Vaulting and para-dressage were held indoors on the other side of the showgrounds and I didn't have the time for even a sneak peek.
     
    Some thoughts on the dressage competitions:
    Isabell Werth is a super star in Germany. You could really see people arriving to the dressage arena just before her test and leaving soon thereafter. She appreciated the crowd. Also on Sunday a literal thunderstorm started during her test but she just laughed it off (as did the crowd). Dorothee Schneider is amazing. She was competing in more-or-less every class with a whole myriad of horses, and yet she was very appreciative of the crowd after each round. What a lovely lady. Tinne Vilhelson-Silfven arguably earns the title for the most elegant rider. Stunning. Prize giving ceremonies are much more fun in person than on the streams. I guess the same probably goes for the medal ceremonies. The crowds really get into it. And finally, as spectators are allowed to freely move more or less anywhere (except the stables of course), I really had an opportunity to bypass all these familiar faces at close quarters. It was really interesting to pass directly by the likes dressage rider Anush Agarwalla (who was all smiles despite having a really frustrating week in Munich) and the well-known judge Hans-Christian Matthiesen, for example. You could even get as close to the warmup ring as you'd like, and then get even closer to the athletes whilst they are walking from the warmup ring to the competition arena.  
    Here are some photos:

    Oh absolutely, it seems to be organized terribly  
     
    But a large part of the blame does remain with people who have no ticket, but still jump over fences and whatnot to get in. Those people, who pretend to support team X even though they know their actions will get team X in trouble, are the root cause for problems

    It's always weird to see France having so much troubles with events like this, whereas the Tour de France usually is organized so well it makes the Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a España look like local amateur races  
     
    Do they put all their semi-good organizers in ASO and the rest is just someone's random uncle who needed something to do?
