Mathematician wins road race gold medal

That is an achievement. I mean chemists are better endowed to win bike races.

the Irish clique bowing respectully to their hosts as they entered the stadium. this is very nice. no irony. i mean it.
It's called cultural awareness.
It’s now called cultural appropriation. Get with the programme.

Although when I stick chopsticks in my hair I call it cultural appreciation.
Not unexpected.
You probably did a bit of judo at Oxford there with Tony Sweeney, so something must have rubbed off.
No doubt, Boris does some bowing when negotiating a new deal up in Sunderland.

hello kata. i was joking in reference to that it is no secret that pretty everyone in cycle sport goes hard on drugs to improve their performance. hence the value-added of chemisty knowledge.  please don't hate me as i have no preference for chemists over mathematicians. :D

Ono takes gold -73 kg judo

Sasae tsurikomi ashi @3.00 (editing is not so good).
My own favourite throw. Use it against strong-arm judokas, e.g. from Georgia.

This is better footage

Congrats, France has a fine judo tradition. In the 70s Parisi, Rouge and Cuche were medal winners.
