Check out the bunk bed episode 415. Though my favorite was octopus (episode 959). 

Whole thing about anti-sex beds is so stupid. People can find 1000 different ways to circumvent this and actually make it more fun. They might have as well given bed of nails (sort of like super-frictionless long-pips).

I always had mixed feelings about condoms. It is sort of wrong to engage in immoral connect with arbitrary partners but on the other hand it helps stop spread of STDs.

I know of one somewhat successful Olympic athlete in one sport who was conceived at the 1972 Olympics by two athletes in different sports. There may be others

I heard they have schedules the mixed-doubles first because China used to dump that event.

But  Jun Mizutani / Mima Ito team is quite good

Right - while you throw your hat in the ring and are prepared to eat it, the forum smarties are all hat and no cattle and just can't stop talking through their hats. Hats off to Donn everyone! Big smile

PS: Note that the predictions in this thread are all about the Toyko Olympics, not the unrelated and more publicized event held in Tokyo.

MS draw is out?

Harimoto vs Pitchford/Calderano should be fun to watch. Harimoto has worse numbers against lefties or right hand players w/ strong BH.

All the draws are posted here in the thread on the Tokyo Olympics. Harimoto could meet Pitchford in the round of 16, and Lin in the quarters.

Pitchford needs to beat Darko first..

and Harimoto needs to beat India's Sathinyan first.

Sathinyan beat Harimoto once before. Either Pitchford or Darko is not easy for Harimoto, neither is LYJ or FZD.

Hi,

The ever so excellent Pitchford over Harimoto?

Nope.

Hold the ketchup.

I agree with all of your choices except the last.  Samara played Hayata really well in Doha.

Looking at the current draw for round of 32, looks like mens SF will be Fan Zhendong v/s Harimoto, Ma Long v/s Ovtcharov, the Chinese will take gold and silver, Ovtcharov will take bronze.

Predictably 
Gold Fan Zhendong 
Silver Ma Long
Bronze Harimoto

However as obviously not open tournament because if so Wang Chuqin will upgrade his previous Olympic Gold to this one. Therefore Olympic Bronze is artificially gifted to the third best player in this limited entry tournament and not world’s third best player as anyone who follows international table tennis will agree that the top four and possibly even all eight best male singles players are from the same team and so most banned from this competition of the best of the rest and not all world best. We know that despite players from numerous nations at Tokyo not known for highest tournament wining performance will not materialise in any break through surprise new winning player. The last surprise was arguably Ryu Seung Min who always previously loses to Wang Hao but shockingly Wang Hao did not perform when it mattered most. No surprises this time unless Ma Long beats Fan Zhendong for Gold to defend his previous title and maybe retire as undisputed greatest winner of all time.
