So what is the story of the result of the Women's Marathon. Is there a Photo finish? Further milliseconds we dont see? Or a tie?

Hey all, I'm thinking of starting a domestic archery competition - three events per football cycle - next season. One will be scored after I write the Previews of the RLS, one after fifteen games, and one after the RLS season. Interested in sending any archers? I'll allow three per nation:
If you send one, you can give them whatever ranking you want
If you send two, the average needs to be 80 or less
If you send three, the average needs to be 70 or less

There will be no RPs, and it will be co-ed. If you're interested, please either TG me or DM me on Discord. Thanks!

A tie would be shown by xkoranate by the lack of a rank order (see any number of other events for an example of this).
Marathon timings are only provided to the second, as in RL, but xkoranate does simulate tenths of seconds.

I'd like to say congratulations to Liventia and Banija for an Olympic Games well hosted. These are always require a massive commitment to host, and it's been good passing the time in these uncertain times with the Olympics.

Thanks to the hosts for a well-hosted and professional Olympics. I couldn't post nearly as much as I would have liked due to family circumstances but I had a great time.

And thanks to the Banijan basketball team for again denying their home fans the taste of victory.

Please feel free to continue RPing the last day results and the closing ceremony etc.

Any last-minute issues should be raised in the next day, please.

Thanks for participating, guys.

Maybe I counted wrong (again), but could it be that I have a gold medal too much? I only saw 21.

But if it is too much work I take it without further investigation. :D


Edit:
Nope, I found her after looking a third time. Dominica Ordo escaped my eyes. Everthing in order. Sorry.

Woo, we got through it, my first Olympiad! :D

This was as intense an experience as I've ever had, lol. Put a lot into it. But it was an enjoyable experience in the end.

A number of people I'd like to thank.

First, and the biggest thank you to Liventia, for having the faith in me to allow me to co-host this event with him. Also for him doing everything in his power to make this as easy on me as possible, by intentionally giving me sports with the simpler formats, and for him writing the extra files we'd need, to succeed, and for being a great mentor in terms of Olympic hosting.

Secondly, in Electrum, for having the confidence in me to recommend me to Liventia that I am capable of pulling these off.

And in S&T, Quebec, Farf, and Baker Park, for talking to me lots and helping me keep my sanity.

Great job for everybody's RPs and what not. Very enjoyable to read. I guess now Istria is forever in the pantheon of Olympic cities :)

I'll add my thanks and appreciation to the hosts. I apologize for losing motivation early on, which I can see if I'd put just a tiny bit more effort in, I could've won more a couple more medals. Still, a well run competition, so congratulations to Banj and Liventia and to all the nations that participated.

Needed to wrap things up for a RP in the Everything Thread. I hope people don't mind if I'm a day late, but I needed to get it out of the way for the end of the weekend.

I'd like to formally apologize to both hosts for my lack of RPing during the Olympics. I had a lot planned for the Olympics, but a few personal things in life happened that made it very difficult to get into the frame of mind to properly RP. It was not my intention to go into the Olympics and not RP. I had a huge RP arc planned, but never came to pass.
