Sports or not, the general rule is to mingle with the smarter and the richer. The dumber and the poorer will drag you down or take you wallet, if not life.

BRAZIL-SERBIA and POLAND-USA in business end of Men's World Championship in Volleball.

From all the participating teams in the competition only 4 left remaining. In the first semifinal Serbia plays vs. Brazil at 17:00 (15:00 GMT) while in the second semi Polska vs. USA at 21:15 (19:15 GMT)

fivb.com/en/about/news/brazil-serbia-and-poland-usa-in-business-end-of?id=79121

Just to put things in perspective in terms of population:

1. USA 326 million
2. Brazil 208 million
3. Poland 38 million
4. Serbia 7 million

It is a great achievement just reaching the semifinals and being in the top 4 in the World at anything, I hope both Serbia & Polska win medals.

Congrats to Poland for winning the Men's World Championship in Volleball 2018

4. Serbia 7 million

7 mill for now. We are now i era of yoke and partition. But freedom will come.

Anyway, Serbia is true sport world power. Spirit and mentality of victors. As Hungarian Victor Orban said these days- `You Serbians were top and you will be top again`

Yes, an awesome act indeed. It was high time - 99 years ago the Polish Tennis Association was established.

Poland's Iga Swiatek won a Grand Slam tennis tournament with the best combination of unheralded dominance in more than 40 years, taking the French Open without dropping a set, capped by a 6-4, 6-1 victory over American Sofia Kenin in Saturday's final.

Young Pole Swiatek dominated the whole tournament, no one took more than 5 games from her.

Swiatek to Djokovic:

"Thank you champ - good luck tommorow!"

That sounds ungrateful, remember a Pole is meant to either work in the field or fight for it after all :) either with words or glory Poland shall be blessed! :)

Amazing how this has gone from sports news (something very topical here right now due to the young tennis star) to something quite different.

It doesn't take much for that to happen here ;-)

Great news about Iga Świątek though; a success story that's a bit of bright news in these dim times...

I suspect there aren't many people here who watch figure skating, as far as I remember Lenka liked it, but this figure skater has an interesting family history so I decided to put some spotlight on her. I was watching this year's Rostelecom Cup and the moment I saw her hair and costume I turned the sound on because I knew this couple's dance is going to be interesting and I wasn't mistaken. I really liked it, the audience did too and the song they picked for their free dance - "Survivor" - resonates well with me during these pandemic times... Her surname sounded Polish - Tiffany Zagorski (Zahorski in Wikipedia) - so I decided to check if she has Polish roots.

Her great-grandfather was Eugeniusz Fostowicz-Zahorski, a renowned Polish chess player and activist and her great-grandmother Anna Zahorska, a Polish poet. Zahorski family, a house of Belarusian boyars, received the Lubicz coat of arms from a Polish king. You can read the rest (or at least most of it - there's more in Polish Wiki) in English version of Wikipedia:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiffany_Zahorski#Personal_life

Pity she doesn't skate for Poland (she skates for Russia), considering she comes from such a patriotic family, but I can't blame her - Polish figure skating is basically in an agonal state.

Either way, those interested in figure skating - watch out for her in future competitions :)

It's the same with other ice sports too. PolAmKrakow talked about this with ice hockey - it's run for the benefit of those who run it, rather than for the development of the sport.

The very limited ice available in Poland doesn't help things.

Recent winters certainly haven`t helped to practise it. Country kids have zero chances to go ice skating when local ponds are not frozen.

Polish Americans may not be aware, but will be pleased to hear that the fastest growing sport in Poland right now is American Football.

Another huge sport in Poland is Speedway.
Almost every city or town in Poland has a Speedway track.

Daytona 500 was today, but I didnt watch it or care at all. Its big with those rednecks though!

Delph told me about it already, hes involved with Tampax 200 and said he would pull some strings to get some tickets. lol

Poland has a Speedway track.

They have been world champions many times. plenty of Polish riders have come to ride for British clubs in the past.

Usually vice versa these days. I was reading only recently how British clubs struggle because Polish teams can afford to pay riders much more these days.

Yeah.
Speedway used to be as big, if not bigger than football in the UK after the war.
Even in the seventies I used to go to watch Wembley Lions at the old Wembley Stadium.
It is amazing how just four motorbikes can make so much noise!!!
But it has really gone down in popularity here and yet continues to be popular in Poland and several other countries.
