Unome wrote:Science Olympiad at MIT has an account now. Thsi makes me thin kthat a) the 2017 tournament announcement is going to be coming out very soon now, and b) Luo is not very involved anymore (< sad face if true. liked his speeches)

Edit: Also, the website is currently offline in preparation for next year.

Glad you liked my speeches :) I'm still around, but I'll be working on the tournament in a strictly advisory capacity this year. I intended to make the transition from a lead operational role to an advisory role last year, but duty called and I ended up doing a bit more than I had expected. From the very beginning of Science Olympiad at MIT, we planned to have a new tournament director every year to ensure that new ideas would surface and that the organization would be sustainable in the long-term (not dependent on any individual person). This year, the incredibly dedicated Katie Shade, a member of last year's tournament planning committee, will be stepping up into a co-director role along with my great friend and classmate Stephen Tang. The tournament is in extraordinarily capable hands.

As I'm sure you saw, the 3rd annual MIT Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament will be on Saturday, January 21, 2017. We hope to see you there! Fingers crossed for no blizzard this year.

Uh, Franklin and Lochte weren't exactly that good. And never forget young Ryan Murphy kicking Olympic butt.

Ugh. He's so annoying and such a poor winner! I'd much rather we lose in his events then have him represent the US. Although I guess is better than if Trump won 20 golds...

Aww, I love phelps. I thought it was kinda funny actually how he reacted to his medaling.


On the other hand, I can't wait for all of the Women's events finals! Kocian has really good uneven bar routines and form, and she'll probably take gold in that event with Mustafina and Douglas battling it out for silver and bronze. Vault for women's is a wild card ( the money's on Simone honestly) with a ton of competitors doing the Amanar and the Cheng vaults, so the variation isn't too high. Simone got the highest in qualifications with a 16.000 and 16.100, but her score hasn't been as high during team finals and all around finals, and if it keeps decreasing, there won't be a clear winner. Floor has always been Raismans strong suit, but Simone has beaten her everytime in competition this year so floor finals should be rather interesting. Beam could be anywhere between Biles and Hernandez.

Let's say that I'm bad at Sassy games. First chance at being officer = dies next round. Thought about self protecting but decided it was too selfish. Sorry about being such a poor replacement Jasper_Kota. :P Oh, well. Got some suspects now.
