  1. About 50%. There are many reasons why a big young talent loose himself. Early Growth, specially for girls. There are girls that at 18 are women, and girls that a 18 are babies. And real ages. Not even clear. Especially for africans and chinese. Head. It's easy for a young talent to be under pressure. Injuried, sometimes we ask too much at them. Finally, youth. Some of them are now too youngs
  2. Summer tour are more important than olympic games? C'mon, it's a joke... if you don't like a 3 rounds tournament, is possible ti made 2 groups, 4 teams each one. The first can play final, the second bronze medal game. Are 4 matches, in 20 days. Not so easy, but is possible. TUE (before games)-MON-SUN and SUN
  3. De_Gambassi why not? Eigth team, with ENG-SCO-WAL can be only GBR. Direct elimination, quarterfinals, semifinals and finals. First round before open ceremony (like football and other sports). Only 3 matches in 20 days. Not a problem.
  4. There are many sports to remove, all of circus disicplines. Breaking, first of all. But also skateboarding, extreme canoeing, artistic swimming where standings are fixed, bmx freestyle, kiteboarding. Absolutely, classic rugby instead of 7. Stop surrogating sports. And reintroducing some serius classes of sailing, like star or finn.
  5. The same is happened in a bout between Mesiano (ITA) and Yldiz (TUR): Mesiano wins for 4 judges, one of them for 30:26. Only a drunked french judge have gave the win at Yldiz.
  6. I have a question. Where are chinese athletes? In all international competitions, they are out.
  7. Finally! No more strong teams out from games! No more european teams penalized for a weacky esotic nation!
  8. Uhm. Too many events at the same time, 90% of finals in the afternoon. Not so good.
  9. From the prestigious italian's group "fratellanza olimpica", with fans, athletes, journalists, and federation presidents, here are the Italian's awards 2021: BEST MALE: M. L. Jakobs BEST FEMALE: A. Palmisano BEST TEAM: Men's 4x100 relay BEST PARATHLETE: C. Gilli BEST YOUNG: J. Sinner BEST COACH: P. Parcesepe There are easy choices, 2021 is magical year for italian Athletic with 5 gold in Tokyo. I'm not agree only with Sinner, for used criterias.
  10. News for Olympic QUalification systems. Criteria will be approved by IOC on executive board in Feb 2022, only equestrian federation have published provisional system, here
  11. FOR ITALY 1) 6/10 for global performance. Italy wins 10 gold medals, and is 10th in medal table, like all predictions. Surprise is where we win. Nothin from out traditionally sports, like fencing, boxing and shooting, all fromo atletics. And i'm totally agree with @phelps for singles sports judgements. 2) Obviusly 5 golds in track&fields. If Jacobs was a medal candidate, the 4x100 relay is totally unexpected. Heaartberak is in the most important 15 minutes of italian's sport of ever, with Tamberi's and Jacobs wins. 3) Our country's goal is ever top10 on medal table and about 10 golds and 35 medals. Italy is quite stable on this level. 4) All, in Italy sport is totally killed by politicians, during pandemic year our athletes was not able to training free, and now many activities are still closed. Every medal is a miracle for us.
  12. For Italy 371+13 reserves: Archery 4 Sport Climbing 3 Athletics 76 Softball 15 Basketball 12 3x3 Basketball 4 Beach Volley 6 canoeing slalom 3 Caoneing sprint 4 Rowing 23 (+3) Cycling 24 (+2) Equestrian 6 Gymnastic artistic 7 Gymnastc Rytmic 7 Golf 4 Judo 8 Karate 5 Wrestling 2 Swimming 36 Artistic Swimming 8 (+1) Marathon swimming 3 Waterpolo 12(+1) Volleyball 24 Modern Pentathlon 2 Boxing 4 Fencing 18 (+6) Skateboard 3 Weighlifting 5 Surf 1 Taekwondo 2 Tennis 6 Table tennis 1 Shooting 14 Triathlon 5 Diving 5 Sailing 9,-schianta-la-serbia-e-vola-ai-giochi-dopo-17-anni-spedizione-record-con-384-azzurri.html
  13. For Italy, no doubt to win 35-40 medals. Real problem is number of gold: all in Italy are fear for very few victories.
  14. 3 rowing, 1 waterpolo, 6 fencing, 1 artistic swimming, and 2 Cycling: for example, in fencing are 3 for weapons=maximum 18 athletes.
  15. i'm agree, but... Italy is a fantastic team, with too few players. In Belgrade, only 6-7 men was really in play. Spissu, Abass, Vitali, Moraschini, are about nothing... we can give 4-5 players? I think is impossible. So, welcome GAllinari, welcome Banchero (who had choosen Italy. Why, if not for Olympic GAmes?), and welcome Datome. More doubt for Belinelli, stop for Hackett.
  16. For tokyo, will be back for sure GAllinari and BAnchero. Datome and Belinelli? I don't know. Hackett not.
  17. Coni counts also replacement. 13 in waterpolo, for example, where are 12+1.
  18. Italy Official 359, waiting Basketball.. but is a little bit difficult!
