  1. By the way, shocker in the women's African Olympic Qualification Tournament: Algeria wins in Blida and they will send there Women's Indoor Volleyball team to the Olympics for the first time ever.
  2. Talk about bullshit... Thats the kind of things you would expect from a country like Ethiopia, not Canada...
  3. Actually, chances are you will se some Volleyball on CBC this year, since Canada has been invited to the 2008 World League. I remember seeing two or three World League games on CBC that involved Canada last year (out of eight).
  4. Choosing Klassen or Hughes would be a bad idea since they are still competing. Gagnon would be a good choice, thought.
  5. Just for precision's sake: Athletic - Team TBA, but at the very least one men and one women. Archery - 2 athletes qualify (2 womens), still a possibility to qualify an athlete for the men's competition. Badminton - its all happening May first (qualification based on ranking), but, if qualification was as of January tenth, they would send 2 athletes in men's single, one in women's single, two men's double pairs, one women's double pair and two mixed doubles pairs. Boxing - Indonesia didn't qualify a boxer yet, but the two Asian qualification events are still upcoming. Cycling - No Indonesian qualified yet - the women's road cycling, the track cycling and the BMX qualification are incoming while invitational places are pending. Judo - No Indonesian is qualified as of yet, but the Asian Judo Union places and invitational places are pending. Sailing - You didn't mention it, but Indonesia actually qualified a boat (Men's Windsurfer). Swimming - Same as whit Athletics. Rowing - Indonesia is yet to qualify a boat, but the Asian Qualifications regatta (for some events) or the Final Continental Qualification Regatta (for the other events) are upcoming. Taekwondo - Indonesia failed to qualify, there only chance to send an athlete is a wildcard entry (4 are available). Tennis - We shall find out in June/July. Volleyball - Indonesia could still qualify for men's indoor Volleyball but, in all due respect, it is highly unlikely. Weightlifting - Four mens are qualify, and Indonesia can still qualify a single femal athlete at the Asian championships or as individuals.
  6. Although, if they use the old codes from Beach Spiker (which was developed by Sega's AM2), I would buy the game just for the graphical update (because, to this day, Beach Spiker is still the best Beach Volleyball game ever made... By a landslide).
  7. By the way, they never was a single video game that was released on HD DVD, at least not from my knowledge (and I know quite a bit when it commes to video-games). The XBOX 360 dosen't have a standart HD DVD drive, and the add-on drive can only be used to watch movies. Oh, and virtually every seventh-gen multi-platform games, even the PS3 versions, use DVD-9 (it is, after all, the most that a XBOX 360 can handle). Oh, there are 302 events at the Summer Olympics, not 32 (they are 32 disciplines, thought), so when they say 35 events, that means the 100m and the 200m dash are separated events. And you are expecting too much from this game. I guaranty you will be let downed if you don't get your hopes down (and by a lot).
  8. 3 best ranked teams from Europe, 2 from Norceca, 1 from South America, 1 from Africa, 2 from Asia (Indonesia, Chinese Taipei) The thing is, they don't say how they will select the "top teams".
  9. For those that are interested, the score of the Puerto-Rica/Canada game was 41-39 (!!!), 25-21, 25-19. Honestly, thought, loosing the first set must have been a huge momentum killer. I mean, losing a set even thought you scored 39 points... It got to hurt... Oh, Faster, nobody knows how FIVB will allocate the quotas for the World Olympic Qualification Tournaments, it is only assumed that it will be via the world ranking.
  10. We lost in straight sets. Too bad. Oh well, lets hope we can at least rebound and beat Cuba again in the bronze medal match.
  11. Not that well. I haven't herd anything of Zina Kocher this year, but Sandra Keith seams to have a decent season.
  12. Where did you watch this? Venezuela's Women's Volleyball team did the same thing, beating Peru in 5 sets. Meanwhile, in Cycling, Canada have earned 4 quotas in Mountain Biking: two (out of a possible three) quotas in the men's X-country and two (full quota) in the women's X-country.
  13. Last year's Continental Cup standing (top level for Women's Ski Jumping) 1. Anette Sagen, Norway 2. Ulrike Graessler, Germany 3. Lindsay Van, United States of America 4. Daniela Iraschko, Austria 5. Juliane Seyfarth, Germany 6. Katie Willis, Canada 7. Line Jahr, Norway 8. Jaqueline Seifriedsberger, Austria 9. Alissa Johnson, United States of America 10. Izumi Yamada, Japan
  14. Yes, the jumps look good, and will serve as great venues during Vancouver 2010. But I do have a problem whit them, and probably not the same one that EWO, Agent... and the rest of the username-way-to-long-to-remember-club. Its simple; building the smaller jumps (like they did for Calgary 1988) would have mean that we can finally get Canadian Ski Jumpers developed in another region that Calgary. Sure, we have world class facilities in Vancouver now, but you can't use them in the winter and it will be impossible for beginners to use them. Vancouver 2010 would have been a great way to develop Ski Jumping in Canada. Its a shame that Vancouver's youngsters will still have to go to Calgary if they want to try out the sport. Oh, and hopefully this Ski Jump will be kept in good shape, not like the Calgary one...
  15. They finished third in Montreal, correct? Anyway, I sure hope they make it (it would also be nice if te men's team qualified, altought it is far less likely...).
  16. Speaking of Dans, the three-time defending champions in the women's Olympic tournament now have no chance to qualify for the Olympics (actually, they didn't even manage to qualify for the World Championships...)
  17. They (along whit our men's water polo team) still have a decent chance to qualify.
  18. Here And here In an unprecedented move, the IHF decided to replay the Asian Olympic qualifying tournament, thus denying Kuwait and Kazakhstan from a place in the men's and women's tournament, respectively. This move comes after major Korean protest (South Korea finished second in both tournaments) in regard of the referring. Simply unprecedented, but honestly, you have to feel bad for the members of the Kuwait and Kazakhstan national teams...
  19. Wikipedia is gravely underestimated (and don't worry, I did double-check everything on either the IF websites or the websites of the event organisers, and everything is indeed correct). As for TSN's list, its rather lame...
  20. By the way, the Canadian Olympic Trials in Wrestling are now underway. I am sad to say that Jonathan Rioux, who happens to be my friend's cousin, only finished third in his weight class (-84kg Freestyle, which happens to be the only men's one in which Canada qualified so far), and, consequently, he will not make it to Beijing. Oh well, at least New-Brunswick should still be represented in Rowing (women's pair), and Rioux is still a good prospect for 2012.
  21. FIBT World Cup: Gold in two-men, Silver and Bronze in two-women.
  22. Sandra Honor might have gotten Canada there quota, but it is still up to the COC on how to use it: Susan Natrass might very well go to Beijing.
  23. Here is a look at what we qualified so far, by sports: Archery: 3 men (full quota, also qualified for team event), sadly so far no women qualified. Boxing: One weight category (-69kg) Canoeing: Men's K1 slalom, men's K1-500m, K1-1000m, K2-500m and C-500m. Cycling: 3 athletes in men's road race, 1 men time-trialist, at least one athlete in men's mountain biking. Diving: one team of men's 3m synchro and women's 10m synchro, 2 divers in men's and women's 10m and one diver in men's and women's 3m Equestrian: Full team Gymnastic: Full 6 member men's team in artistic gymnastic, 2 women in artistic gymnastic, one individual rhythmic gymnast, two athletes in women's trampoline and one in men's trampoline. Field Hockey: Men's team qualified Modern Penthatlon: One men and one women qualified Rowing: Men's 8, Men's LW 4, Women's Pair, Women's Quadruple Scull and Women's LW Double Scull Sailing: Men's RS:X, Men's Laser, Men's 470, Women's RS:X, Women's Laser Radical, 49er (open event), Finn (open event) Shooting: 4 quotas (men's 50m riffle prone, men's trap, women's 10m air pistol and women's trap) Softball: Women's team Swimming: Every relay but men's 4x100m medley Taekwondo: 3 weight class (-80kg men, -49kg women and -67kg women) Weightlifting: 3 womens Wrestling: 3 weight class (Men's 84kg Freestyle, Women's 48kg and Women's 55kg) It is to be noted that, from Canada's point of view, qualification is still ongoing for every sports but Equestrian, Gymnastic, Shooting, Softball, Taekwondo and Handball (in which we never had any chance to qualify anyway...).
  24. You can add another bronze for 4-man bobsleigh ^^.
