I wouldn't compare those two countries since Slovakia came from a big ice hockey thing called Czechoslovakia, whereas The Netherlands comes from...

Well like Marcel said, that kind of development program doesn't really exist. I'm just saying that Slovakia has long been considered an underdog to do anything in Olympic ice hockey and they've quietly gone on to produce some high caliber talent. And not just because of guys like Hossa and Gaborik - they've started buying into the team system and developing grinders and fighters and every kind of player you need to win.

Now they just need to work on their goaltending talent like Finland.

Anyway, I'll stop talking winter and ice hockey here. This is supposed to be about the Summer Olympics.

Btw why I said that to K7 is that he said that he knew the clock ticks back during an ice hockey match.

Which isn't even always the case. In international competition the clock starts at 00:00 and stops at 20:00 for each period. Not to get off-topic, just thought I'd point that out.

And you're right about the Netherlands never getting very far in terms of ice hockey, although teams like that start out small and work their way up with a good development program. Slovakia is a good example of that.


You mean Slovenia
Suisse is better, Denmark, Norwat
Cheoslavakia when it split up Czech rep and Slovakia, Cz like CSSR legacy get all higher places, same like USSR broke, Russia get all, small nations start frtom top
Latvia hockey in 1993 wemt to groop B and to A 1th year was 1997 Helsinki, Turku WC and it was werry close to medals, (Rugny was same Russia get WC place, but Georgia and Latvia protest and there was qualification and Georgia won all) so Slovakia has great traditions , weeker hwo Cz yes lil but still

In Swe it calls hockey but offical TV guide its written hockey , same Finland, Russia. latvia, hmm

:lol: trust the Dutch tv to find a way to make The Netherlands come out on top of these Olympics.

Our bias over here is quite apparent as well. By the way our announcers laud our efforts you'd think we're the only country winning medals, or even competing for that matter. And some of the news sites that report only Canadian victories and triumphs... after reading an article for the day, I'm left thinking we've somehow managed to break into the top five. Unfortunately they failed to mention how the US and China quadrupled our effort and pretty much every other country ahead of us doubled our earnings.

I just had to check whay place you guys came in and lo and behold that was...

36th

with

1 gold

5 silver

12 bronze

total of 18 medals.

Shame for you ranking is made up based on the number of golds and not the total number of medals.

1 gold

I imagine we apologized profusely to competing countries for beating them that time around. As an overly polite nation I like to think we're spinelessly conceding to the opposition.
