    I thought subsequent blocks weren't going to be released until the current block was underway.

    Back to the drawing board for me.

    A fair number of people asked if we would post them Krutin.

    Also, we decided it would not be fair if we played unless we released the information, since it could be said we'd have an unfair advantage by knowing the remaining events. So in the interest of fairness to all, we've posted all the events, so everyone can plan their strategy for the Game.

    That's fine, it just removes the luck element from the contest. Now people can potentially also have the same teams.

    Isn't it supposed to be about knowledge about obscure sports not luck?

    Of course, but now it's just the Olympic version of a "Road to..." contest.

    Whoa, that's a lotta tennis...

    Not that I should be surprised, I suppose .
    It's hard out here for a Zuz.
