    It seems it's fixed now... just instead of going to the "sport", try searching in the individual event, though still doesn't show properly for table tennis.
     
    As I said before, I just hope live results work properly tomorrow

    I’m really starting to like the inclusion of the monobob because I’ve always wanted to see a driver centric event

    Why add an event that makes the most sense? IOC Logic..

    Right, but it still stands that most culture discourages women from participating in sports. There is also a lack of money and funding for women’s sports because of sexist beliefs. How are women supposed to be motivated, if men do not support them and only discourage them.

    Exactly. Events should not be put in the Olympics to make them grow, events should be interesting enough to grow before they're being put in the Olympics.

    For the most part I would agree but I do like some changes like the addition of non-traditional new sports at the Summer Games.
    Also, I'm not jumping the "Mixed events are shit" bandwagon. They are perfect for sports like Triathlon or Modern Pentathlon where separate men's and women's team events for them would be too much. Too bad MP didn't get their mixed event at the Olympics. The Mixed Medley Relay in Swimming however is nonsense.

    Yep...I'm actually very much hesitating to tell this news to my girlfriend (Brazilian biathlete), since this might severly impact her chances and even her entire motivation for the next 3,5 years..

    Women's Handball and Volleyball finals are more exciting (to me) than Men's. So maybe for some people the Men's events are better, but not for everyone - I know for a fact that sports fans in Brazil care more about Women's than Men's, and that's a big market if we're talking about Volleyball.
     
    + (i'm just fishing here) maybe the time difference favours the Men's events finals to be held on Saturday? (for America viewers, I mean?)
     
    Maybe they could create a rotation system, but there's no reason to be so mad at this decision.

    It becomes a liability to have so many players involved when the other sports need to have their quotas reduced.
     
    Football has 11 players on the pitch, and it is working perfectly well with 18 team members at the Olympic tournaments. Hockey meanwhile somehow has 23 despite only 6 being on ice at one time...

    Another option would be to remove ice hockey, that would save a true boatload of quotas.

    Biathlon quota reduction makes sense.
    Skating does not make sense. Speed skating is seeing growth in non-traditional markets and short track is ridiculously hard to qualify
