Olympiad predictions

It seems that people really believed in Russia this time around. Well, they should have won, but didn’t. Armenia has won three of the last four and Ukraine two of the last five. Russia last won in 2002 with Kasparov on the team.

At the closing ceremony the organisers did not present the Armenian flag (I think it was the Colombian in stead?!), just as they were insensitive to the winners in a few other ways. There is an old conflict between the two contries that sadly not only lingers with the victims. One Armenian said about the flag incident that ‘it was not the worst thing that had happened to Armenians in Turkey…’

Worse is of course that Armenia will not play in 2016 in Azerbaijan. At least this is my prediction.

Here are your predictions:

    “Worse is of course that Armenia will not play in 2016 in Azerbaijan. ”

    Hosting the olympiad in a country where Armenia will not/cannot play was really, ——g stupid. Just my opinion, though.

    And hopefully that self-censorship was enough. 🙂 Don’t want to get banned.
