Re: ~~~The Chat Thread~~~

In Holland football and than an enormous gap...
than probably speed skating, cycling, tennis and hockey.

Basketball is not a big sport in Holland, but I think it is fun to watch.

Yesterday the Dutch football team was being honoured for their final at the World Cup. There was a cruise through the canals of Amsterdam, presentation on stage at Museumplein where DJ Armin van Buuren performed.
There were around 700.000 people in Amsterdam. Such an amazing sight, everyone in orange and partying.

Re: ~~~The Chat Thread~~~

Good that he is still trying

But only 12? Is that list official? I also have these from my calculations
Womens: Kefala (marathon), E.Stefanidi (PV), Lika (javelin), Perra (TJ)
Mens: Tsakonas (200m), Tsiamis (TJ), Stamatoyiannis (shot put), Stefanopoulos (50km Race Walk), Papadimitriou (Hammer)

Of course just because they qualified doesn't mean they are going

But I don't get this whole A and B standard thing

For TJ, Papachristou and Paneta made A and Perra made B, so does that mean Perra can't go? I thought you were allowed 3, but only 1 can have B standard, and Perra is the only one, so can she go to Daegu also?

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari

Re: ~~~The Chat Thread~~~

Perra has been injured since May
she was to participate in the NC on Saturday, she came out had a few practice jumps and pulled out

Tsakonas has qualified but he's decided not to go, his main goal was the European U23 and he felt very tired as it's been a very long season he will focus on the Olympics now

the others didn't make the standards (Stefanidi and Stamatoyiannis were close though)

Re: ~~~The Chat Thread~~~

Thanks for the news

These are the Q standards: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_Wo...tion_standards

So the ones I listed qualified. For example Kefala in the women's marathon. She had 2:40:36 which and the minimum time is 2:43:00 so she qualified, no?

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
