Ermmm, you said "Judo (15) and Taekwondo (8) should be gone as well"

The current programme shows them to be very much still in the Olympics for 2024.

do you know the meaning "should be" ? it means .. in my opinion shouldn't be part of the olympic .. geeez, it means I don't agree those part of the olympic.

I do know exactly those will be part of Olympic 2024, which is unfortunate .. all just my opinion, you are free to disagree

I do not know why I am under the impression that sports had to have equal gender participation and had to have a given number of participants amongst the regions represented by the Olympic rings. Now Australia is applying to have netball which is essentially played by women become an Olympic sport.

It's fun watching the athletes in quarantine doing exercises in their room on weibo. Hopefully they will be on some Olympic feature shows to tell their stories after the two weeks are over.

Look like China would get another bronze medal.

It is funny that when China got the fourth place because of the mistake by its anchor runner, I was thinking that China could still have a chance if any of the podium-placed runners test positive for doping.

I was thinking more of the top Italian runner because of his previous association with a somewhat tainted coach.

Remember that a British runner false started during the100m semi-finals, and then another British false started in the finals. It must have been the drugs they were using.

Italian 100m winner will not race again until 2022, probably to avoid testing?

Not likely.
There's always out of competition testing as well as Athlete Passport testing.

The cited reason is fatigue and that otoh, is very real. Pity these poor guys who have had to suffer training to peak in 2020 and then readjust to peak again in 2021. Looking forward to 2024 Paris, it's going to be a shortened 3 year cycle so what better time to take some time off then now?
