Europe’s best target to Tokyo Olympics 2020 qualification

Seventeen different nations will contest the Rugby Europe regional qualifiers for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Games in France and Russia this weekend with the women’s event to the most competitive of all. Fans who want to watch the live competition of Olympics Rugby can get Olympics Rugby Tickets online.

All eyes will be on Kazan and Colomiers this weekend as the best teams in Europe converge on the Russian and French cities to battle for the men’s and women’s regional qualifiers for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Games. The women’s competition is a mouth-watering prospect, featuring the HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series in France, England, Russia, Ireland, and Spain.

This year’s Olympics Games will be held for the first time in the world. The Olympic Games will be competing for the first time in the world. France are the first seeds of the first round of the Rugby Europe Women’s Sevens Grand Prix series on home soil in Marcoussis last month, and will be favorites to win the title and book their ticket to the Olympic Games just as they did four years ago when they beat Spain 20-0 in the final in the race to Rio 2016. Spain would later join the winners of the global repackage in Dublin.

Courteix said. “Spain, Russia, England, Ireland we are one of the five favorites to qualify for Tokyo 2020. But what’s exciting is that we must play with our head on every game it’s a bit like walking on a wire.”

“It’s pretty exciting at this level to tell you that in every match you play for your future. But what is so challenging is that the two teams will definitely be eliminated from the Tokyo Games two teams of high quality. We are super motivated fully striving towards the goal and we will give everything to get there. To qualify for the Olympics in sevens today is a real performance qualifying would give a particular flavor to three years of intense work. “

Courteix has named a strong squad for Kazan, picking many of his sevens stalwarts in captain Fanny Horta, HSBC Dream Team member Anne-Cecile Ciofani, Chloe Pelle, Camille Grassineau pictured and Shannon Izar for a tournament that sees them, as top seeds, drawn in the easiest pool on paper with Poland Italy and Moldova.

Pool B features Russia, the runners-up in Marcoussis along with England, Germany, and Sweden while Spain and Ireland are joined by Romania and Czechia in Pool C with the top two in each pool and the two best third-placed teams to progress to the quarter-finals on Sunday.

Tokyo 2020 Qualifier: Italy beating Great Britain in final of Softball Europe/Africa Cup

Italy has reached the Tokyo 2020 Olympics after beating Britain 5-0 in the final of the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) Europe/Africa Qualifier. They become the third nation to reach the Games joining the United States and hosts Japan next summer after a comfortable victory in Utrecht in the Netherlands. Fans who want to watch the live competition of Olympics Softball can get Olympics Softball Tickets online.

It completes a superb double for the Italians after they won their 11th Women’s European Softball Championship title. Starting pitcher Greta Cecchetti was an unresolved force today for Italy, throwing a shutout game in 99 pitches with 13 strikes and only two hits.

The Italians are the third of six qualifiers for the return of softball to the Olympics two teams will progress from the Americas Qualifier that will take place in Surrey Canada. The other will come from the Asia/Oceania Qualifier in Shanghai China.

Earlier, European Championship runners-up the Netherlands secured third place in the Europe/Africa Qualifier by defeating the Czech Republic 7-0. In front of a massive crowd, Great Britain and Italy faced off again three weeks after the European Championship. Greta Cecchetti and Georgina Warrick were the starting pitchers.

Italy took the lead in the first inning. Amanda Fama was hit by a pitch with one out Emily Carosone singled. Later Emily Piancastelli plated Fama from third with a single to right field. Then, Ricchi reached first on a fielder’s choice. In the action, the British defense made a throwing error so Carson could score the 2-0 lead.

The Italian team extended the lead between the third and the fourth frame. With one out Carosone doubled to left field. Then Beatrice Ricchi plated pinch-runner Fabrizia Marrone with a two bases hit. In the fourth inning, Andrea Howard singled Pinch hitter Alessandra Rotondo reached on a fielder’s choice while Howard was out on second. Lunghi flew out but Fama had a base hit later Vigna singled to make the score 5-0.

Great Britain tried to back into the game but it couldn’t. Greta Cecchetti was outstanding from the circle, pitching a shutout game with 13 strikeouts and only 2 hits allowed. On the other side, Georgia Corrick took the loss.

Italy already qualified in Japan and the USA. The other 3 National Teams will be defined in the other two Qualifiers. Two teams will qualify from the Softball Americas Qualifier that will take place in Survey Canada. The last one will come from the Softball Asia/Oceania Qualifier that will be in Shanghai, China.

China and Ukraine are indeed the next two major nations to join the Olympic field alongside Russia and Japan in the team events.

Artistic Swimming: Countries that Qualify to 2020 Olympics

China

The Chinese scored 96.0333 in the free team final with their “Ode to the Heroines”, for a combined score of 191.1876 that earned them a spot to Tokyo. They have been working on this routine for a while now and wanted to highlight the Chinese culture throughout. Guo Li admitted the hardest part for them is at the very beginning of the routine where they perform three acrobatic movements in a row.

The Chinese have also been working with Anna Tarrès for the last month in an effort to improve their artistic side. Tarrès, former coach of the Spanish national team for nearly 20 years, has collaborated with Ukraine and Israel in the last few years as well.

“I am just making some revisions,” Tarrès said. “I gave them some ideas to try to develop new movements, try to clean up what they were doing before, and try to make the routine more organic so that it could flow a little more. Mainly, it has been more to give them tools to develop the theme and to develop their own potential. The goal was trying to make them realize that they could go one step forward, and to look for new movement and for a new way of swimming.”

By defending their bronze medal from 2017 and once again placing third with a score of 94.3667, leading to a combined score of 187.8181, the Ukrainians qualified a team to the Olympics for the second time in the country’s history.

Russia

Russia was, of course, the heavy favorite coming into this event, and won the gold medal with a score of 98.0000. The Russians performed their ‘Shamans’ routine for the last time as it was already the third season with this program, and we can be certain head coach Tatyana Pokrovskaya will create something new for the Olympics.

These world championships also marked the return of Alla Shishkina, a two-time Olympic champion, to the Russian team after a break of two years following the 2016 Olympic Games.

“When I stand on the podium in Rio, I think about my comeback,” Shishkina said. “At that moment, I think that I would rest for only one year. But after one year, I think more. I said to Tatiana Pokvroskaya, ‘Can I rest one more year, and these two years is my only rest?’ After these two years, I understand that I love synchronized swimming very much, with all my heart. My comeback is for the love of this sport.”

It will be extremely interesting to see how Pokrovksaya figures out who her top eight swimmers will be for Tokyo as both Svetlana Kolesnichenko and Svetlana Romashina will have to be included in the team once again.

Varvara Subbotina, the youngest of the Russian team at 18 years old and competing at her first senior world championships, explained how intense the internal competition is within the team.

“There are many girls in the reserve,” Subbotina said. “Six or seven girls stayed behind in Moscow. Everyone tries to show their best, to prove the coaches that they have this right to be in the team. Some come to the gym earlier than anyone else, some work harder on some elements in the water or in the gym. This is a normal process; we are used to it. The rivalry in the team is very high, so we know we have to work hard to be on the team.”

Japan

Unfortunately, Japan fell short of a team medal once again by scoring 93.3667 for fourth place. The Japanese had changed free team choreographies from last season, and have performed their new “Japanese Festival” routine at a few world series competitions this year. It will be interesting to see how Japan and Ukraine fare against one another at the Olympics next year, especially with them being on home turf for the Japanese team, but with a dominant Ukrainian team that cannot be denied.

Spain had finally managed to move ahead of Italy during the preliminaries, as the latter had been ahead since the 2016 European Championships in all major international competitions. However, the Italians managed to take the lead again in the final with their new routine “War of Two Worlds” despite falling on a lift, with a 91.6000 to Spain’s 91.4000.

This Spanish team, led by Mayuko Fujiki for the last two years, is still quite young but has shown tremendous improvement since her arrival. Last season, Fujiki’s team had finished only 0.1333 points behind Italy in the free event at the European Championships, and she continued pushing them this season by creating a brand new routine for them in this event, and moving away from the ‘Life in a Factory’ routine to work on this ‘Discovery of an Island’ theme.

“For me, the routine was for them to be able to learn how to swim sharp and strong,” Fujiki said. “It wasn’t really the best artistic side that I could give them. But because this is a young team, they learned something last year swimming the other routine. Now I really wanted to do something else, imagining that they were swimming qualifications in Tokyo, that the people in Tokyo would relate to and enjoy. But at the same time, I wanted something similar to Japan and Spain, and I was thinking, thinking, thinking, and then, ‘Ah! Islands!’ We are both countries with the ocean, we both have a lot of islands, with different cultures, and that gave me a little story to start with.”

Fujiki has also included Ona Carbonell in the free team routine again and brought in 17-year-old, up-and-coming swimmer Iris Tio from the junior ranks to build the best possible team heading into the Olympic year. She has indeed played around with her roster throughout the six competitions her team was at this year, but she has clearly found something that works. If they continue on this path, the Spanish team is certainly in great shape to qualify for the 2020 Olympics.

Canada

Canada finished in sixth place with a score of 90.1000, its highest of the year with its new routine to the ‘Spectrum of Time,’ which was choreographed by Anastasia Ermakova just like its technical routine. Greece obtained 88.3333 for its ‘Africa’ routine, the same as last year, and for an eighth-place finish. France placed ninth with a score of 87.4667 for its ‘Emotions’ routine that we had seen in the last few seasons. The French faced some difficulties at these championships as Laura Augé had to be replaced in both technical and free team events at the last-minute as she suffered a back injury during training.

Mexican

The Mexican team wasn’t far behind with a score of 87.0333 for its ‘Space Discovery’ routine. The routine features a strong opening sequence that will probably give you goosebumps, and all in all showcases a fantastic first lap with a unique throw where Jessica Sobrino, the flier of the team, jumps straight above the base in a straddle split and quickly moves into a horizontal position only to be caught directly by the base underneath.

The Mexicans had a complicated season, and were originally supposed to compete in a lot more world series meets, including the Hellas Beetles Cup and the Japan Open, but ended up withdrawing from those at the last minute.

“It was a very tough season,” Regina Alferez said. “It wasn’t that we were just not competing for the program, but we got sick a lot in the season so it was very hard to train and to get to this point of the year. We never felt like this before. In the past years, we were competing, at not just competitions but also exhibitions. It was a very tough year.”

U.S.A

The U.S. finished 11th with a score of 84.4000 but received a one-point penalty because the walk on deck was too long by 0.04 seconds. The Robot-themed routine was popular with the crowd, and the choreography itself truly is a gem in terms of artistic impression, musicality, and attention to detail.

The U.S athletes have been excited about this routine right from the start and were thrilled to finally swim it on the world stage. They have welcomed with open arms the many changes their new coaching staff of Andrea Fuentes and Reem Abdalazem has brought on.

“I think they are the best thing that could have ever happened to us as a team,” Nicole Goot said. “We have grown individually and together so much, it’s incomparable to year’s prior. Our attitude towards everything changed. They brought a new perspective on how we train, how we compete, and our mindsets. We are a lot hungrier, more motivated, more innovative, thinking outside the box a lot more, and really supportive of each other a lot more.”

Australia

Australia and Egypt also earned their spots to the 2020 Olympics. The Egyptians finished 17th with a free score of 77.8333 and a combined score of 153.6684 to fill in the African continent quota. The Australians placed 22nd and scored 74.5333 in free, resulting in a combined score of 147.9783 to become the team for the Oceania quota, with a free routine choreographed by Giovanna Burlando, former synchronized swimmer and current technical director for Italy.

“We are really happy with how it went today,” Emily Rogers from Australia said. “We had a lot of pressure, so we are excited. We wanted our best swim. We wanted our score to beat New Zealand because then we would get our spot to represent Oceania in the Olympics.”

Notable, Brazil received a two points penalty in the prelims because it had too many acrobatics movements in its routine. Once again, it has been a difficult championship for the Brazilians as they had to scratch their duo from the competition and to replace Maria Clara Lobo Coutinho in all the team routines.

Burling and Tuke Rio Winners regain the lead at Tokyo Olympics 2020 sailing test event

New Zealand’s reigning Olympics champions Peter Burling and Blair Tuke have regained the lead in the men’s 49er class at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics test event. Two second-places and a third in Enoshima were enough for the Rio 2016 gold medalists to replace Lukasz Przybytek and Pawel Kolodzinski of Poland at the top of the pile. Fans who want to watch the live competition of Olympics Sailing can get Olympics Sailing Tickets online.

It came on a day of shifting winds and tricky conditions which provided a different challenge to yesterday’s action where light breezes forced a curtailing of the schedule. It means the sailors competing are getting a good impression of what the conditions could be like at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics regatta next year.

Elsewhere Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti of Italy continue to lead the Nacra 17 class despite collecting a ninth their worst result of the week so far. Sweden’s Jesper Stalheim has knocked New Zealand’s Sam Meech off top spot in the laser and admitted the conditions had been hard.

He said. “We’ve had a bit of everything Today we had a shifty offshore wind, whereas on the first day we had epic southwest winds and big waves. It looks like there will be two more light wind days coming up so we’ll see what they get.”

Maria Erdi of Hungary finished 32nd to lose her lead in the laser radial which is now headed by Belgium’s Emma Plasschaert. In the men’s Finn Britain’s Olympics champion Giles Scott lost the lead he claimed yesterday as Hungary’s Zsombor Berecz rose back to the summit.

Tokyo Hoteling industry is ready to welcome Olympic 2020

For the 2020 Summer Olympics, Tokyo joins the best group of cities that played host to the Games multiple times. IOCC’s selection of Japan’s capital further highlights it as one of the world’s most dynamic cities.

Tokyo Hoteling industry is ready to welcome Olympic 2020

Tokyo made a big splash during the 1964 Summer Olympics, sealing its global reputation as the city of the future. The 2020 planners and policymakers, therefore, knew they had an enormous challenge in finding fresh ways to reintroduce Tokyo to the world. Numerous tech bells and whistles brought forth by Fortune 500 sponsors will enhance how spectators experience the games. Panasonic’s contributions, for example, include a translation device handling up to 10 spoken languages and a smartphone app enabling foreign visitors to instantly scan and translate signs. There’s also a big buzz surrounding driverless Lexus and Toyota taxis.

On the other hand, Tokyo follows South Korea’s performance on the world stage with the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics and precedes Beijing’s next outing as a repeat Olympic city in 2022. Perhaps for these reasons, the city and various developers are emphasizing historic preservation even as projects to improve infrastructure and accessibility apply a city-of-the-future mindset. According to the Japan National Tourism Organization, this Olympian undertaking exemplifies Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s goal to increase the annual number of incoming foreign tourists to 40 million by 2020 and 60 million by 2030.

The reworking of the concrete-based National Stadium, used for the 1964 Olympics’ opening and closing ceremonies, embodies this approach. The old structure enters the 21st century with the implementation of a nature-focused design by noted Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, employing Japanese lumber. It serves as an anchor point of a Heritage Zone surrounding the Imperial Palace that includes upgraded and updated venues from the earlier games. The 10 new facilities, meanwhile, go up in the Tokyo Bay Zone on the reclaimed land of Odaiba, including the swimming competitions venue.

The New Shinagawa Station, launching 2020, is one of the crown jewels of the city’s infrastructure improvements. According to The Japan Times, the first major addition to the Yamanote train loop since 1971 is intended to not only improve crowd flow but also make exploring Tokyo and Japan more user-friendly years beyond the games. It dovetails into transforming the Shinagawa neighborhood and will provide a quick connection to Metro Sengakuji Station and access to Narita and Haneda airports by 2027.

Some of the most visible developments will reside in Shibuya, which adjoins Yoyogi Park, site of the new Olympic Stadium. The mega makeover includes more than 786,000 square feet of new office space around Shibuya Station and nearly 2.8 million square feet of space throughout the district. One of the most important revitalizations is Shibuya Station, adding new elevators and escalators to link the different levels and passageways, facilitating smoother transfers between commuter lines.

Other multipurpose structures in Shibuya will alter one of the world’s most photographed neighborhoods. The 750-foot-tall Shibuya Scramble Square, opening 2019, encompasses expansive rooftop space and one of Japan’s largest observation decks. Panoramic views include the iconic intersection as well as the Meiji Shrine, the Shinjuku skyline to the north, the Roppongi district to the east and (on clear days) Mount Fuji to the west. Shibuya Stream, arriving in 2018, fuses nature with practicality with 20 open-concept office floors, a fourth-floor atrium with compact workstations, and a fifth-floor lobby with an arched ceiling reminiscent of the wave-shaped patterns of the former roof of the Tōyoko Line’s terminal. Its 6,500-foot, tree-lined walkway will about the banks of the newly exposed, free-flowing Shibuya River.

Developments in Ginza involve the use of repurposed buildings and designs paying homage to past architectural styles defining Tokyo retail. Early players include Ginza Place (opened fall 2016), inspired by the 1932 landmark Neo Renaissance-style Wako department store building directly across the street; and Ginza Six (G6), debuted in spring 2017 at the location of the former Matsuzakaya department store. G6’s third basement floor serves as the new home of the Kanze School of Noh, a musical theater group tracing its history back nearly 700 years. The project transplanted its historic stage, plank by plank, to pair with state-of-the-art sound and lighting, improved handicapped access and a multilingual interpretation system.

Between 2018 and 2020, the former Sony building will transform into Ginza Sony Park, where visitors will enjoy multisensory kind experiences delivered by technological gadgets and machines devised by Sony and others. Another global Japanese brand expanding beyond retail is MUJI, Japan’s minimalist lifestyle, and apparel store. When the MUJI Hotel in Ginza opens in spring 2019, visitors can draw inspiration from the brand’s unique design element in the hotel on the top four floors, as well as its expansive home retail concept covering the bottom six and three basement floors.

Mardini competed in the tournaments as one of the Refugee Olympics Athletes Team (ROT) members. The 21-year-old is currently living in Germany, after escaping from her war-torn homeland in August 2015.

Mardini said: “A lot of people have asked me here what I’m representing, and the first word I said was peace because that’s exactly what I’m representing and what my team is representing. The war is still going on, and I think no matter how much the media is showing, it’s still worse than in the media. It’s always tricky and it’s always sad, and sometimes that affects me, especially when I’m in a competition. I do not look at the news, never.”

Mardini raced in the women’s 100m freestyle and 100m butterfly heats at the tournament, despite a niggling shoulder complaint.

Mardini said: “I’ve had the problem for three years now in my left shoulder. Swimmers are swimming 6 to 7 km a day all the time, so it was too much pressure on my shoulders. Now it’s way better. I know how to deal with it now, and it’s going really good.”

The swimmer said: “The next goal is obviously to qualify for the next Olympics, which is Tokyo 2020. I want to be there to compete again and I also want to represent the refugee Olympic team again.”

Mardini said she hoped to raise global awareness of the stories of other refugees, including children and families who have been separated.

Mardini said: “I think I have a role now and have a responsibility to get those people’s voices to other people as well. Right now I cannot do something very big, but I want to start a foundation or maybe build a school to do something for refugees and to save people”.
