Oatland Regional Message Board
I think we made it just in time to apply for the games albeit drowning in 50 gallons of sweat. :3
*July 3rd, 2020, 2:17 - Lord Nanfoodle is sitting at his desk, clammy, AC blasting in his office in the executive mansion of The Onigiri Enclave, Subarashī Koya, when...*
"Oh right, those are coming up again. Ah, can't wait to relax a little and enjoy some biathlon..."
"Hey folks!! Oatland time again, but this time they're cursed, because it's the games they play when it's stupid hot outside!!"
"That's right, it's the 2020 Oatland Summer Games!! Summer!! That season we love, love, LOVE so much!!"
"Why am I here again?"
"Well, we're on a serious time crunch to put this announcement out to the folks, so we need some help on this, plus you'll be going with our athletes as The Onigiri Enclave's head representitive this go around. I mean, you're a weirdo that doesn't hate the sun and stuff, so you'll be at home doing this."
"Also, <bleep> you, that's why."
"That was rude, Yujimei."
"Well, as Yujimei pointed out, I have no desire to go back, and she's on a travel ban list, so we need someone new to go in our stead."
*completely ignored Nanfoodle* "Before we discuss the athletes in detail, let's get a quick primer for those of you at home that may be too busy to watch the entire press junket, or just aren't interested in the all the schmaltz like I am."
Events We Will Be Participating In:
Penny Neuworth (♀) returns to head our diving team, joined by newcomer Splash Mountain (♀)(¬).
Our rifle shooting team shrank by one this year, but the two that are repping us are familiar faces from last year, Melissa Edgeworth (♀) and Deidre Pall (♀).
Just like last year, we couldn't find a single Riceball crazy enough to want to schvitz under the hot sun in the middle of the day doing ten different track and field events, not for a lack of asking. Trust us, when we explained the Oatland Games schedule, we got plenty of colorful comments and gestures, and one recruiter was straight up shot in the foot when she heard the news. I told you, we Onigiri and sun... we don't get along.
In gymnastics, the other half of the Neuworth sibling duo returns as well, Kiki Neuworth (♀), along with her fellow 2019 teammates Desiree Jenkins (♀), Lotus Free Water (♀), and sole male gymnast Horse Renoit (♂).
Weightlifting sees two familiar faces from last year, Jonah Fawkes (♂) and Lena Papadapolis (♀), joined by fresh face and up-and-comer Poko Taru (♀)(բ)(₡).
A new face takes the reins in our equestrian division, Violet Gold (♀)(Ԅ).
Swimming finds our roster rather unchanged as both Hilde Crouse (♀) and Hyacinth Zestango (♀)(Ԅ) return for one more go.
When we sent out requests for archery tryouts, needless to say this outdoor event got some... savory responses. In other words, no takers.
For our new event, sailing we have a couple of... *video is released by Aclion of the event mid-news junket* wait... what is that? We're getting texts from our applicants? They said in a joint statement, "Wait, they expect them to <bleep> all what in the <bleep> <bleep> hot ass sun?! <bleep> that." Hmmm... Guess we don't have a sailing team then either.

The Onigiri Enclave's Uniforms:
Our National Anthem is still "Progenies of the Great Apocalypse"
...and finally, of course, this is our Team Logo and our National Flag:
"Sometimes, with how much the typical Riceball hates heat and sunlight, I wonder why we even bother with the summer games at all?"
"Now that we have that settled, who do we have?"
"Well, my notes show that 23 year old Penny Neuworth from Lapis Lazuli has qualified again for these year's games, though she did decline an interview for some reason. However, the big news is our newcomer Splash Mountain, a 27 year-old pegasus mare out of Shimmering Shoots that..."
We're ready to resume our friendly rivalry with Anacin this year, however, from our side of things we considered the whole Red Inglewood/Peri North tryst a bit of levity given our poor run last year and then that total surprise disaster at the pool. Speaking of which, we'd like to introduce our own reporter, on assignment from the sports desk of FAWN, Fishy Apples World News, lead sports correspondent Delphi Bergit, who will begin their in-depth coverage when the games get underway.
Dang, Elberstan CTEd.
Bonus: The Camera pans around a trailing train, full of fans covered in red, green and gold. The Reporter is wearing a blue 3-piece suit
"And here we are, one on of the major fan transports of Anacinian Supporters of the team. "
The Crowd starts cheering
"And there is a great deal of patriotism radiating off these fan's and were excited to see what happens, This is Gladys Remainton, back to you guys at ANN"

The Oatland Summer Games have officially begun, with almost 300 athletes competing; representing nineteen nations across eight regions, the most participants ever (unless you count the winter games in which nations produce like 30 athletes just by sending a hockey team :p).
We wish the best of luck to you all and hope that you will all compete in the spirit of fair play and common brotherhood.
"This Coverage of the Opening Ceremonies is brought to you by Costington's, Getting More with Less, and SuperVolt Batteries, Long Lasting, Forever Batteries"

"Welcome Back to the coverage of the Opening Ceremonies., my names, Pierre Edelson and Coming up Next is the message and start of the games"
"And there you have it, the games have begun. Join Gladys Tomorrow, with after coverage of the diving events, here on ANN"
The opening ceremony of the Oatland Summer Games is being attended by Nagakawa's Foreign Minister Reiko Hattori, Nagakawan Ambassador to the World Assembly Manabu Horibe, and former National Marksmanship Cup gold medalist Nobuhisa Taninaka.
Nagakawa's team wishes all other participating nations' athletes the very best of luck in the events to come, and offers a toast to the success of the Games.
"In recent news in the Hospean stands, a fan is being escorted out for bringing a live Black Panther to the Opening ceremony. This would be perfectly legal in Hospe but now a fist fight has broken out."
