And the Oplympics are back on. I don't know if anyone remembers that I do this, but here's my weighted ranking of medal winners so far. Gold=4, Silver=2, Bronze=1. With two days of competition in the books, the weighting is already being felt with Italy leapfrogging Australia; Russia getting ahead of Hungary; and Japan in front of Hungary, Great Britain and Sweden. The United States is in the lead whether you use total medals, gold medal count (with ties broken by silver total or bronze total if necessary) or my weighted score. I'm always torn about how to handle ties in my weighted system. Is accomplishing the score with the fewest medals exemplary since that means they're the more valuable medals, or is it better to have the most medals in total. At this point, this is really only an issue between Japan and Russia (yes, I know about Uzbekistan with its two bronzes and the eight nations, including the host nation, with one silver). Right now I'm going with the fewer, more valuable medals wins. Unless anyone can convince me to do it the other way.

One of the nice things about a Black Sea Olympic Games is that the final results from the day come in about 1:30 pm, CST.

Today we start to see movement from the weighted scoring. Russia and the Czech Republic both moved up a place, though for the Czech Republic because of the three way tie ahead of them, now behind them, it turns into a three place jump.

The Dutch continue to dominate the Adler Arena Speed Skating Oval. The French lept onto the boar with a gold/bronze take down of Biathlon's Men 12.5km Pursuit of all things. The Americans had a disappointing day in two of their homegrown events, Short Track Speed Skating and Freestyle Skiing. However, we at least picked up a bronze in the Women's Super Combined to stay ahead of the Russians.

So far, the weighted rankings follow the total and medal color rankings most often used. We'll see how long that lasts. I'm particularly tickled by Russia's last place, though I suppose lots of countries don't have any at this point.

The speech Jacques Rogge should be giving in Sochi at the opening ceremonies adapted from the speech he gave in Vancouver four years ago:

Dear Russian Friends,
We gather as an Olympic family for the first time on the shores of the Black Sea, ushering in a new age of Olympic globalism.

My thanks go to the public authorities of Russia, our hosts Sochi, and all regions of Russia for their strong commitment and support.

Thank you to our friends at the Organizing Committee, who have worked tirelessly for seven years to ensure that we can be here tonight in this magnificent Stadium, to open 16 days of competition for which the athletes have trained so hard.

And a special thanks to the thousands of Games volunteers for your enthusiasm. Without you, none of this would be possible.

For today, the Olympic Games mean more than just performance. The Olympic movement began in the 19th Century as a means to bring together peoples of all the nations on Earth, regardless of divisions that sadly exist to this day. However, as we have progressed as an athletic movement, the Olympic ideal has bridged many more gulfs than mere nationality bringing together in peaceful competition athletes across racial, ethnic, religious, gender, sexual orientation and political divides.

Our world today is in need of peace, tolerance and brotherhood. May the Sochi 2014 Games be held in peace and civility, in the true spirit of the Olympic Truce.

Dear athletes,

These Games belong to you. They are your Games.

So give them the magic that we all desire, through your performances and your conduct.

Remember that you are role models for the youth of the world.

There is no glory without responsibility.

Please compete in the spirit of Olympic values.

And reject doping and cheating.

I now have the honor to ask the [whatever Russian official who is going to open the games], to open the XXII Olympic Winter Games.
yonihamagid: (gay)
I've been reading a lot about calls for action regarding the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia because of Russia's recently passed anti-gay laws and very well publicized abuses of gay people and their supporters both officially and by private citizens.

The first word on everyone's lips is "boycott".

This is an easy one.

Don't.

Not because "the athletes have trained hard" or because of any of the other reasons apologists (and some not so apologetic people) have floated.

Don't boycott because they don't work. The boycotts of 1980 and 1984 were absolute disasters on every level. Russia continued their offensive in Afghanistan for five years following the 1980 boycott. In fact, Afghanistan was so Soviet controlled that it participated in the 1984 Olympic boycott. Nothing was gained, and the West just looked bad. As for the 1984 boycott, well what was that supposed to do again? Not only that, but that left a twelve year hole in the Olympic record. None of the contests in either of those Olympic games are even remotely relevant in historical sport since the contenders who should have been competing were not able to face each other in any sport.

All boycotts do is make the Olympics irrelevant, and an irrelevant Olympics certainly isn't going to advance the interests of anyone.

Now there are growing calls to move the Olympics.

Yeah, not going to happen. There are 184 days until the games begin. I met a woman in Vegas on one of my trips there. She was in town for an academic conference. It was supposed to have been held in Chicago on August 8 of that year. January 1 of that year, the organizers decided to pull out because of an unsatisfactory response to a labor dispute, giving them 220 days to find a new venue and get it set up. The only place that could handle that many people (~10,000) in that short a time was Vegas. There is no place in the world, not even Vancouver that just hosted the Winter Olympics four years ago, that can be ready to host a Winter Olympics in 184 days. No where. The choices are Sochi or no Olympics at all. It's that simple.

And finally it has been suggested that Russia be banned from Olympic competition as have been South Africa, Rhodesia, Afghanistan and India (though India's was very short and was the result of contested NOC elections and not national civil rights violations).

Of the options, I like this one the most, but don't see it as feasible for this Olympics, not because you can't ban the host country, but because you can't put a ban in place this shortly before an Olympic Games. However, I would say if things don't change, and certainly if any athlete, coach, official, journalist, spectator, and, most importantly, Russian citizen is in the merest way inconvenienced in the name of enforcing this anti-gay law during the Olympic fortnight, then the hammer of a ban should come down hard and heavy and keep Russia out of Rio in 2016.

Ultimately, my preference for this Olympic games is that everyone go. Everyone compete. And everyone be just as gay as it is possible to be without violating evenly enforced public indecency laws. Open the Pride House. Wear and wave whatever rainbow gear you've got. Make it a gay old time on the Black Sea.

It appears that my html skills deteriorate as the games go on. Last time I was able to add a column to this table. Now I just have to change the total column to score and carry on. I'd really like to know how to manipulate <a href=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_Summer_Olympics_medal_table#Medal_table>this</a> so I can add a column to it here.

Since the original table is in descending order of medal ranks (most gold is the highest, tied for gold most silver, etc.), lower in the list than they would be when using my scoring system are: the United States (which should be in first place), France, Germany, Russia, Japan, The Netherlands, Australia, Mexico, Canada, Columbia, Cuba and Slovakia.

Here we go again. Weighting is gold=4, silver=2, bronze=1

I can't seem to figure out how to reorder the table I've stolen form wikipedia this time. According to weighting, Japan should be ahead of Brazil, and the Netherlands should be behind Russia.

For me the biggest surprise is that at this point Germany is nowhere on this list. I'm sure they'll find their way here soon. As for the surprising accomplishments so far, I'd have to give that to Kazakhstan and its two golds. Particularly it's gold in the Men's cycling road race that the host nation was really counting on.

Again, the home team of Great Britain is highlighted. I neither know nor care how to get rid of that.

The weighting comes into play heavily today. Canada is in third if you take total medals, first if you rank most gold. They're second place here. Which means the list of countries out of total medal order when a weighted total is taken is: Canada, South Korea, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Australia, Belarus, Slovakia, Finland and Great Britain.

China, Sweden, Italy and Japan are ranked significantly higher than countries with which they share a total medal count.

The Czech Republic and Poland are odd in that they share both a total medal count and weighted score, but do not share the same numbers of individual colors of medals.

I'm sorry I didn't make this clear from the outset. The table was ganked (and modified) from the wikipedia 2010 medal count page. Whoever's responsible for that page made a point of highlighting the host country in blue, and I never bothered to remove it.

Observant people will note that despite, at this time, a bronze having been awarded in an event no gold or silver has yet been earned, the medal count is gold, 73; silver 74; bronze 73. This is because two silvers were awarded for the men's 20km individual biathlon.

This doesn't include ladies figure skating. I've got to get to bed.

Who could have expected the US would get a major boost today from nordic combined of all things?

With two curling medals assured for Canada and an extremely likely hockey medal for them, I'd say they're gonna come out of these Olympics just fine.

During a men's ice hockey game between the Russian Federation and the Czech Republic:

Announcer 1: What languages do these teams speak among themselves?
Announcer 2: Well, the Czechs speak Czech to each other, and the Russians speak Russian, and when they're talking to the other team they speak English. The words aren't very nice, though.

That game also included the classic:

Announcer 1: And a chant has started among the Russian fans. I'm sorry I don't speak Russian; we'll try to have a translation for you later.
Announcer 2: I believe they're chanting "Rossiya, Rossiya", which is Russian for "Russia."

I think it's nice that no country's only medal is bronze. I don't know why that warms my heart, but it does.

The countries affected by a weighted score at this point are Canada, South Korea, Switzerland, Austria, Sweden, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Australia, Great Britain and Latvia. Croatia, Slovenia and Belarus have fewer medals than a country, Japan, with the same weighted score.

Used to be

Feb. 22nd, 2010 05:43 pm
yonihamagid: (sports)
Used to be when a government collapsed during the Olympics, athletes wound up stranded in the host country. I'm not sure the Dutch athletes even know they're headed home to a governmentless country. And I'm certain they don't care.
yonihamagid: (sports)
I've done something slightly different tonight. Before if tied, the country with the most medals was listed first. I decided that since we're weighting the medals in the first place, perhaps making the score with the lower medal count is the greater achievement, which is why Great Britain has surged into 18th place.

I'm not going to have time (nor are all the medals going to be awarded) before Shabbat to do a full medal update, but I'll point out that at this point, Norway's weighted total is 28 with 10 total medals, while Germany's is 27 with 11. In a overall group of sports in which often hundredths of a second make up the margin of victory, this seems significant.

Ok, maybe "significant" is only in statistical sense.
yonihamagid: (sports)
Using [livejournal.com profile] cdk 's preferred weighting, we have more movement. South Korea, Switzerland, China, Sweden, Slovakia, Australia and the Czech Republic move higher than their total medals would place them.

In 2014 the Winter Olympics will be held in Sochi, Russia.

Snowboarding will have been an Olympic sport for 16 years.

It is possible there will be competitors in those events who were not born when snowboarding was not an Olympic sport.

It is almost certain there will be competitors who were wearing diapers the first time those events were contested on Olympic soil.
