European Games


...happens in June, but let's have quick "what's this" because even I needed one.

]European Games, about to be held first time, is intended as equivalent to All-Africa Games, Asian Games, Pacific Games and Pan American Games. In many sports it acts as qualifying for Olympics and in judo and wrestling this is simultaneously European championship.

The Games will be held in Baku, Azerbaijan - somewhat controversially as they were the sole bidder for the event.

Re:


Interesting and I hope we get to see some of this - depending on when in June, though, because for me Wimbledon will always take preference!

Re: European Games


Bad start for Finland. Just before games our best hope for gold, wrestler Petra Olli, withdraws due injury.

Re: European Games


Finally first medal for us, a bronze from trap shooting.
But that's rather bitter because he would've needed silver for a place in Olympics - and a Swede took the silver.

Re: European Games


And that's it. Pretty disastrous.
Out of 50 competing countries Finland is tied 40th. 844 medals and we get one bronze.

Only ones doing worse than we - i.e. not getting any medals - were Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta and Monaco.


Even being the host, it's unbelievable that Azerbaijan was second in medal table after dominant Russia.
