    Were the Russians banned from competing due to doping?

    Hehe, well, I've got to admit one not very unimportant factor. The Russian World Champion (from 2015) didn't defend his title.

    This thread so far looks more like a Dutch & Norwegian Sports Appreciation Topic :p

    Yeah, sorry. We are into other sports our countries are good at (e.g. Handball). And our football teams suck. ;)

    Handball needs it's rules re-visited in order to gain more popularity. E.g. passive attack, fouls criteria and such. Make handball great again.

    I'm surprised to see Tero Pitkämäki still fighting for the podium at the IAAF World Championships, years after his Norwegian arch rival retired. Makes me think ... what if Thorkildsen had taken the time for his injury to heal, instead of retiring?

    Besides that ... this tournament has now seen the fall of two great champions. Not only Usain Bolt, but also Mo Farah, have now been defeated ...

    Oh fuck. Sad ending for Bolt as he is injured on the final leg of the 4*100m relay ... not the way a great career should finish :(
