  1. Poll #27. These are olympic champions in certain events. Imagine that all these champions are on the top of their game at the very same moment in time. Who would have won gold? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Olympic_medalists_in_cycling_(men)#Omnium https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Olympic_medalists_in_shooting#Trap https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Olympic_medalists_in_shooting#Trap_2 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Olympic_medalists_in_athletics_(men)#3000_metres_steeplechase https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Olympic_medalists_in_golf#Women's_individual

  3. But to be honest, I don’t care that much how many medals Poland will get. If it is 12 total/ 4 golds - ok. If it is slightly less or more, that is ok as well. I care much more about entertaining, tense, close competition in the sports and events I like the most. I will probably miss some good performaces by Polish athletes again because I will be more focused on watching events I really like, even if there is noone from Poland in it. And I hope I will be there in Paris to enjoy the games by myself.

  5. A really nice match now - Bouzkova vs Garcia. Really interesting to watch.
  6. Early thoughts on Team Poland. A little bit more than 200 athletes. Around 10-12 medals, I would say 3 golds. Maybe 4 if there is a one big surprise like 50km race walk in Tokyo. By now, biggest chances for these 3 gold medals would be Tennis - Women’s Singles, Sports Climbing - Women’s Speed and Athletics - Men’s Hammer Throw. Other medal chances by now: Athletics - Women’s 4x400m Relay and maybe one more in athletics somewhere (Maybe Adrianna Sułek in heptathlon, hard to say). Swimming - Women’s 50m Freestyle 1 or 2 medals in rowing and canoe each We usually get at least one medal in combat sports and there is always at least one medal from an underdog, totally unexpected Men’s Volleyball - I won’t talk about medal here this time. Let them go through QFs first. I hope men’s handball team will improve and qualify, which will be hard already, not expecting medal here. Biggest fun for me personally would be a gold for Iga (which means her career would not only be a two-seasons fun), a medal in swimming (first since 2004), first Polish gold in canoe and/or cycling (we never had it but it will be extremely hard to get one) and good performances by our men’s volleyball and handball teams. If Patryk Dobek proves that he can perform well in 800m again, that would be great fun as well. Or any other of our 800m runners. An unexpected medal in athletics from a new, young athlete would be nice. Hard to guess who could do it though. And Anita Włodarczyk… Never underestimate the heart of a champion, they say… We will see.
  7. Looking at the draft schedule we already got and trying to find out which events will be on particular days. Not an easy task in many cases though. Firstly, it is hard to say if there will be women’s or men’s rugby 7s first.
  8. Anyone knows when the detailed Paris 2024 schedule - event by event, session by session - may be published? I don’t remember how it was for previous Games.
  9. I have a feeling that it may be the end of Iga streak. Either today with Cornet or on Monday with Tomljanovic. But as all my predictions here are constantly wrong, I hope my own streak will continue…
  10. This is "interesting" that ATP and WTA decided to strip Wimbledon of its ranking points but that didn't stop them from putting awfully lot of Wimbledon news on both ATP and WTA official Facebook and Instagram accounts. Clickbites, I know. What a wonderful world. Am I surprised? No. There is another word for that.
  11. Five Polish players in women’s singles 2nd round. I don’t think it has ever happened in the Grand Slam before. Nice. Very sad about Hurkacz loss though.
