Servette did have a bankrupt (just like Lausanne 2 years ago) and now they play in the Erste Ligue (3rd division).... The stadium, from the inside is quite nice, but from the outside it sucks, really ugly I find...
Good to hear that Servette still exists. :) I thought the stadium was nice when Switzerland played Ireland (or was it Russia?) in Euro quali. :scratch:

Well, you shouldn't trust this. I have so unclear memory... Where was the nice looking stadium. A fan had a flag with number 1423 (I can't remember the exact number, but it was something like that.) And, I wondered what the number meant... We won or had a draw. Wasn't it in Geneva??

How is Ajax doing so far? (PSV is my favorite Dutch team!)

They did lose :rolleyes: played terrible, quite some important players injured, will be a great season again I guess...

Yes Amman was great :yeah: I remember that quite well :)

Yeah North Americans were already really strong on the shorter distances, but now they're also taking the lead on the long distances.
He was really great at the time... I think he won the Swiss Athlete of the Year award in that year (not Roger...). I don't think he can repeat this time...

It will be interesting this time to see who wins for speedskating...

Stevens Point

Especially his first 100m are amazing, he's always so fast and coz of his style it looks also faster than others.
Yep if Shimizu has a good day he can win, but sadly during the olympic games he needs two good days coz the 500 m is on 2 days.
Wow, you know him and this stuff pretty well! :worship: Right, I think his weapon is the start..

Yeah I think it was quite a surprise he did win there and he really deserved the Swiss Athlete of the Year award that year.

Yeah I am wondering how it'll be with speedskating this year. I don't expect a lot of Uytdehaage next year (he won 2 gold and 1 silver medal in Salt Lake) but I hope Wennemars will be able to win the 1000 and/or 1500 :)
