Ffs anyone interested in talking about athletics? I missed the race did mageean qualify? I can’t find results.

Not really, there's also scope for a wider discussion, good luck to all participants

Ah, the chuckie purity test raises its head again. She's running a race ffs, nothing more.

She's from Portaferry btw, I'm fairly sure.

Like Israel in the Eurovision, sure they're just singing a song

Israel? So lets hit sports people ffs, Where does it end? Should we stop sports people or protest against every country that's doing wrong? That's a very big list or do you just prioritize some countries and its sports people?

Russia has been sanctioned for their aggression against Ukraine

I guess it ends when the war pigs quit their crusades, so basically never

The hierarchy as it stands is an inverted pyramid of piffle, hard not to be a cynic with Qatar hosting the world cup

The British commonwealth by definition was not a commonwealth, it was resource theft, transfer of wealth and subjugation

Just worth keeping this stuff in context, it every bit as relevant to the discussion as the events themselves, no issue with anyone competing or celebrating or watching or sneering, but for the reasons above it wouldn't be my cup of tea

As I said its a very big list if we really look into what countries are doing, but we aint not getting goods from them or protesting against them.

Russia
China
Saudi
multiple African countries, Sudan, Nigeria, Yemen, Congo south Sudan,
USA
Britain
Syria
Myanmar
Iraq
Afghanistan
North Korea

There is I'm sure more countries than that so why be more concerned over one and not the rest?

Don't mind any of them invading us except the brits

15. Not sure if she’s in the 8 but I don’t think she’d be fast enough to make the final in it.

Coincidentally, they have something similar called Jeux de la Francophonie and is open to participants from countries/members of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie.

As the Republic of Ireland is an observer member of the OIF, it can in theory send competitors to these games, the next one being held next year in Congo.

i would personally like to see  a european games be more prestigious   and promoted

https://www.european-athletics.com/

There are plenty of separate competitions for boxing, swimming etc but I do like the idea of a Euro Games….
There is one is there not? It’s starting this coming Thursday?
