A woman must be able to support a man and six children or something close by, Karl Kalkun told his daughter in the Estonian cult film “Here we are”.

Estonian women at Tokyo OM are feeding the emotions of our people and Estonian men among them. Of the four gold medals of the Epeena women (in the official calculation, it will of course be recorded as one gold) and the yield of the bronze medal of Katrina Lehis, Estonian men can no longer exceed.

The reception of the female fencers at Tallinn’s old airport was sublime, dignified and kind of pompous. The opening beat at the airport began with the rhythm of the Taiko drums, which was influenced by Nordic shamanism. After that, when one of our greatest Olympic winners of all time, who only values ​​strength and firm defeat of the opponent, hung oak wreaths on the neck of each member of the winning epic community, the time after the Berlin Olympics unintentionally came to mind when Kristjan Palalu came to the homeland as a two-time heavyweight winner.

The ceremonial reception was also remembered by the fact that no politician or other matter drove an empty lora, but appreciated the substantive value of the winners for both Estonian sports and Estonian culture as a whole. Of course, the special respect of the main character of the victory, Katrina Lehis, did not go unnoticed either. It was also very pleasant to pay special attention to the head coach of women, Kaido.

Before the competition, Kaaberma was injured in the leg and had to survive the whole ceremony of honor on the stage, with a sweat on his forehead. Fortunately, the Mayor of Tallinn, Mihhail Kõlvart, presented him with the Tallinn Sword, which Kaabermal has previously had. He could rely on it not to torture his left leg too much.

What was heartfelt, however, was the meeting of Katrina Lehis with her partner and little son, who was holding her father’s neck cramped when the mother, who had been seen on the TV screen for several days, finally appeared to him alive and true. The mother will have several more days of meetings and awards for the next few days, and if her little son can still really touch her, then family life will regain its balance. At first, the child seemed afraid of all the noise around it and was a little ashamed to fall on his Hollywood-style neck.

The mayor of Haapsalu, Urmas Sukles, was also nice, who, as usual, turned to the winners in just a few sentences and gave them all Haapsalu scarves. These names were probably embroidered the night before the reception.

Estonian women have been out in Tokyo for a man. For example, mountain bike cyclist Janika Lõiv had to work hard among 40 competitors, because climbing over rocks and stumps and lowering them on a bike gives a rather extreme impression. An ordinary citizen would probably be taken from this track to the EMO on a stretcher in the first round, but Janika came with a smile, a pigtail fluttering over her right shoulder, to the finish with 17th place. Five years ago, this small Valga girl started her journey among the best in the world and promised that she wanted to reach even higher.

Archer Reena Pärnat, who is the best place for Estonian archers at the Olympic Games ever, also finished the competition with 17th place. The chest swimmer Eneli Jefimova also competed very meaningfully, reaching the 16th place in the 100-meter distance as a 14-year-old girl from Sillamäe. The swimmers consider his foot to be one of the best in the world in this style of swimming. And how beautiful Estonian this Sillamäe girl speaks, a Russian woman herself.

In fact, the best swimmer in Estonia was Kregor Zirk, who saved the honor of our men with the 13th place in the 200-meter freestyle. Estonian women have another trump card in their back pockets. Wrestler Epp Mäe is currently in the best form of life. A sports friend who met him on the street said that Epp has such a face that he even puts Heiki Nabi on his back now.

Athletics started yesterday, which is always the main area of ​​games. The cover of the Mondo tartan track seems to be very fast. This was shown by the times of the women’s 100-meter race. The men’s 400-meter hurdles were also incredibly high in the first lap, where Rasmus Mägi showed that he was very ready for the competition. Based on the phenomenon, it is not impossible to have a medal, which in the opinion of the team would result in a bronze award.
