Tokyo begins with a girlfriend, but as in good love stories, we never know how to end, as the Olympic scene itself triggers a passion for the sport. This explains why there are many athletes who, despite collecting records and titles, have felt incomplete without gold hanging under hoops. It’s like an unfulfilled love.
the bride is Simone Biles, while who should hand gymnasts after the return of the two legends from the history of the sport and the Olympics, it is unknown: Usain Bolt u Michael Phelps. Tokyo has emerging candidates, such as swimmers Caleb Dressel, but not to replace them. not that. Sports find their kings primarily in pool, athletics track or racks and rings, but the last two scenarios do not present a candidate with the ability to devour multiple trials, as might be the case with Dressel. The momentum on the board has shown a good level in the season, but it remains pending for a new king.
new age gymnast
Biles exemplifies the history of gymnastics well. The age of American girls began, an era inaugurated by Romanian Nadia Comaneci, the first 10 in history at the age of 14, but she is already able to best herself as a woman, the same way she did Vera Kaslavska, the Czech who started his norm with the Games in Tokyo right here in 1964. She was 22 years old and extended her rule in Mexico until she was 26. Biles, who began dominating the World Cup at the age of 16, the minimum age imposed by the International Gymnastics Federation to avoid highly demanding situations on minors, competed in Tokyo with 24 after her five medals, four golds in RO. We do.
Unbeatable on land and dominating general competition, biles also represents the evolution of the female trait toward a more powerful biotype. Comaneci was slender, graceful, with the characteristic elasticity of ballet, although not all products made by Mephistopian coaches were that way. bella karolik. test was Mary Lou Retton, in 1984, when before the collapse of communism and the era, technicians moved to the United States to serve Ceausescu, or Kerry Strug, in 1996. Lou Ratan was like an ‘atomic ant’. The Pitta, with its low center of gravity, improves its positions, especially on the ground, and has managed to compensate for its short stature in events such as jumping. Although sleeping in the bar in Ro resisted her, in Tokyo she demanded fullness, but, moreover, she tried to love the world with her practices, waiting to find out if her ‘Yurchenko’ Let’s be introduced with the double lethal pike. No other woman has managed to do this.
Biles also adds the racial factor, being the first black gymnast to ascend the world throne of the sport, which was formerly dominated by the Eastern blocs. It’s a victory compared to the one they made Tiger Woods in golf Lewis Hamilton In Formula 1, preserves inaccessible to blacks in the past. In the year of ‘Black Lives Matter’, his rule in Tokyo may have more significance. retired his biological mother, Shannon Biles, for social services because of alcoholism and raised by her grandparents, the truth is that this gymnast has the great mutual love of her life for Olympism, to which she hopes to be faithful in Tokyo.
The void left by the bolt is due to several reasons. First, because of his unattainable record and his ability to extend them throughout speed tests, even though he didn’t get to test with the 400, to which he was clearly gifted. Second, because of his charisma, almost ecclesiastical, unconcerned about Olympic liturgy. He was the recordman, star and ‘showman’, everything the sport and its industry needed. The numbers speak exaggerated. Bolt left in the 100 in a futuristic 9.59. The best ‘Sprinter’ comes in Tokyo with 9.77. that of Treron Bromel An exceptional brand, making them the ninth person in history, but a far cry from this recent past of wines and rosés on the track. No one has driven so fast in the years since the Bolt era, except Christian Coleman (9.76), absent from the Games for not showing up for anti-doping controls. Whether Bromell becomes the fastest man at the Games, a qualitative distinction, it is difficult to crown him as the great male reference in Tokyo. It will get more prominence in the same exam, but lady, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Price, who has scored the best score in 100, at the age of 34 and being a mother Florence Griffith, with 10.63. The runner could thus compensate for the crisis faced by Jamaica, known as the Land of Power, in the men’s section.
Duplantis and White Hopes
The track waits with more anticipation of other men, such as peers. armand duplantis, turned into the real heir at the age of 21 Sergei Bubka. Born in the United States of America but of Swedish nationality, like his mother, he broke all roofs and opened a new era in the way of another obstacle at the pole: 6.20. two centimeters missing
White athletes, however, are not limiting their competition aspirations this time around, as demonstrated by Nordic athletics’ astonishing performance. jacobMILF saga of the best ingebrigtsen, is one of the most anticipated in the big date. At the age of 19, the Norwegian prepares to devour the part of the Middle Plains dominated by Africans. We will see your answer. with him is his compatriot Carsten Warholm, the astonishing world record holder of the 400m hurdles (46.70), after overcoming a time in a test from Barcelona 92, which for years has belonged to African Americans.
Presence of ‘Mr’. jumps’
One of them appears to have come from a very distant time or from some unknown future. is about Juvon Harrison, Able to alternate high and long jump at the highest level. Transitions or alternations between the triple jump and longitude occur in athletics, or between longitude and sprint events. But to find someone who can combine length and height in an Olympic event, you have to go back Jim Thorpe, in 1912. His compatriots would, 109 years later, win him in the American ‘trial’ in Tokyo. Harrison also comes in with the second best world record of the year in each event. At 21 years old, this son of a handicap specialist, who had also practiced in his training, has jumped 8.47 in length and 2.37 in height respectively, two records with which he reached the podium and even in some games. , be on top according to the level of the final.
the runway may finally see Iliad Kipchoge Before closing, as the winner of the marathon. However if he succeeds, the Kenyan, who has already won in Ro, will not be able to do so under popular uproar, as abe bikila Under the Arch of Constantine in Rome in 1960. what a pity. However, Tokyo’s cry is against the Games, not the heroes or those who accompany them. This country is defined by one word: respect.
LEDECKY, to expand your domain
While there is no successor to the Bolt that is capable of performing global tasks at speed, the pool generally offers more options. in Tokyo they fall in the dressel and Katie Ledecky, who could continue his dominance in RO, though without comparing himself to Biles. Dressel comes in with a world record of 100 butterflies, more than a worthy business card since the Phelps era, plus three others in the short pool. But after Ro proves his swimming prowess with seven golds in two World Cups in Budapest (2017) and six of the eight metals in Gwangju (2018). The competitive environment is the same, but there is something different in sports, let’s not forget that.
Beyond the track, the pool or the gymnastics hall, stars abound, including some of the first samarancho He did not have access to sports, which are known as professionals. Novak Djokovik is the only representative of the ‘Big Three’, without Rafael Nadal not Roger Federer. The Serbian aspires to have a Repkar in 2021, which would add Olympic gold to the year’s four Grand Slams.
New cycling cannibals come straight from Paris, Tadej pogakar, The most atrocious form of the game in the final cycle. Everything is to be expected of the Slovenian, the tyrannical winner of his second tour, but he has to concentrate all his talent in a single event. Attractive awakening, even the best off-road attempt at cycling, Matthew van der Poela, who is one of the contenders for gold in ‘mountain biking’, following his successes in the classics, on the stages of the great tours or mountain events.
Doncic against Spain
from Spain B. A i know how to measure Luka Doncic, their last white hope, in the first leg of the basketball tournament, which returns to find the team to defeat in the American team. Front, Kevin Durant. Doncic, a former Real Madrid star and Mavericks star, is enough to take Slovenia to the Games, a far from easy feat given the serious selection imposed by pre-Olympic criteria on European teams. Slovenia is not among the favourites, but let’s not forget how much Balkan basketball has shone in the history of the Games, even though it was like Yugoslavia (one gold, four silver and one bronze). Anything you can expect from a talent like Doncic. Most of all, if, like this year, you are ‘in love’.
