  1. Especially because in the WC there's no limit of 2 per country
  2. (and to think that before the Olympics someone criticized the fact that D'Almeida name was in the prediction contest, calling him an "unknown" )
  3. Okay sure, but does it matter that much? These women seemed so tired, and at least avoided the ultimate embarrassment of losing the championship.
  4. Argentina was leading comfortably in third and fourth sets, so in that way it was a little surprising how they just gave the match to Colombia. Chile is by far the worst team, so Argentina will qualify directly tomorrow.
  5. Surprisingly enough, won vs at the women's South American championship. Something tells me if we had a challenge system in this tournament, it could have changed the outcome of this match... Anyway, Argentina should easily defeat Chile tomorrow (most likely 3-0) which will give them the runner-up spot for the World Championship. In this scenario, Colombia would have to win the match vs Brazil to qualify - if they hadn't lost the match against Peru, their life would be much easier now.
  6. with a chance of not advancing even with a weaker group.
  7. Natalia Gaudio (Rhythmic Gymnastics) Her biggest achievement is probably the AA bronze medal at the 2019 Pan American Games and participation at the Rio Olympics.
  8. Brazil had medals in 14 sports, which is also our record. Sadly we were very close to 17 sports with 4th places in Badminton, Cycling and Triathlon.
  9. Final Medal Table Comparing with 2016 (only nations in the top 30 in either edition), the NPCs which improved their performance in the rankings: 2016 2020 +/- NPC 64 11 +53 74 22 +52 48 10 +38 47 18 +29 41 19 +22 43 24 +19 29 20 +9 33 30 +3 7 5 +2 15 13 +2 4 3 +1 8 7 +1 NPCs which ranked the same as in 2016: 2016 2020 +/- NPC 1 1 - 2 2 - 9 9 - 16 16 - NPCs which ranked lower than in 2016: 2016 2020 +/- NPC 25 26 -1 12 14 -2 23 25 -2 27 29 -2 3 6 -3 5 8 -3 11 15 -4 28 31 -4 6 12 -6 25 31 -6 10 17 -7 21 28 -7 13 21 -8 19 27 -8 14 23 -9 22 34 -12 17 33 -16 18 35 -17 20 41 -21 24 51 -27 30 64 -34 Of course being higher or lower in the rankings don't always translate as a better or worse performance. Rankings can be deceiving, as Azerbaijan places 10th with only 19 medals (14 of those being gold) and France is only 14th with 54 medals (I'm sure they'll do fantastic in Paris). Compared to Rio, 8 NPCs continued in the top 10, with and out and and in. is the first host nation since in 2004 to not place in the top 10, but huge improvement compared to 2016 (no gold medals vs 13 golds now). and improved a lot, and even though they won less medals than in 2016 (18 vs 16 now), the great number of golds have placed in the top 20 for the first time since the 80s. Biggest disappointment should be with their worst ranking ever (aside from their first participation where they didn't win any medals). Tokyo definitely wasn't good for them as they also had their worst ranking at the Olympics since the 70s.
  10. at the 2020 Paralympics 72 medals (tied Rio 2016) 7th place (tied London 2012) 22 golds (best ever, previously was London 2012 with 21) at the 2020 Olympics 21 medals (best ever, previously was Rio 2016 with 19) 12th place (best ever, previously was Rio 2016 in 13th) 7 golds (tied Rio 2016) So Brazil tied or surpassed every best performance ever, so I'm happy with Tokyo 2020
