I'm going tomorrow to see the Judo. Really excited!
First medal for Sweden
outstanding ride by Wiggins!
Do you think China would be willing to exchange medals for debt? We'll give you basketball gold for $10billion $1trillion.
A great swedish athlete just did his last olympics. Lars Frölander swam the 100 m butterfly, not a great race, but he retired with his pride intact IMO. He did swim faster than when he won the gold in Sydney, but the sport has got so much more demanding and he just couldn't keep up.
One more day until track and field
The British are alright at cycling aren't they
So, another gold in the cycling for the Brits and two world records broken this evening.
^ we just got another cycling gold, we certainly are good at sports you can do sitting down
Yeah, another one, not to mention the Tour De France a couple of weeks ago.
Gotta be the best year ever for British cycling. Really enjoyed all the track races so far and the road time trial.
Team USA great win against Nigeria. but no.. i didn't watch it
That game was crazy. Some people were complaining that the US was trying to embarrass Nigeria. I honestly think Nigeria's defense was just that bad and Melo was just too hot with the 3 ball. LeBron and Kobe didn't even play in the second half.
Also Anthony Davis is really evolving with this experience. One or two more upgrades and New Orleans might actually be a contender for #2 in the East.
Great start to track and field with America dominating the quarter mile.
I think it's good when a team plays the best they can, it's not like some teams that are losing on purpose or cheating lol.
I think it would be a bit disrespectful if they played not as good as they could just to be "nice" to the opponent. It's the Olympics after all - you do your best at all times - and I believe everyone understands that, or should understand that.
I don't think there is a problem with conserving a bit of energy and easing off the effort a bit. After all most of the athletes are competing a lot in a short space of time and are bound to tire. Just don't take the piss with it like those badminton players to try and lose to get an easier draw. That truly was ridiculous. The longest rally in the match was 4 shots.
On a different note this could be another crazy day for GB with the medals. Murray definitely has a silver but if Federer plays his best I don't think he will win. Women's team pursuit is pretty much a formality unless they crash as the GB team are head and shoulders above everyone else. Could win some rowing medals but don't think any will be gold.
In Athletics Jess Ennis possible gold? I don't think she will win though unless her rivals have poor Javelin/Long Jump or she pulls near PB's out. She is very weak compared to her main rivals and incredibly inconsistent at those events. Chris Tomlinson and Greg Rutherford could medal in Long Jump and if one of them gets near their best could win gold. Is the 400m hurdles tonight? Can't remember. Dai Greene could medal in that too.
Finally possibly my favourite ahtlete - Mo Farah. Will be tough to win gold but he can definitely do it was the World Championships showed last year. Hope he wins either that or the 5000m as he is such a nice and down to Earth guy and what he has done in challenging the traditional long distance running superpowers is pretty extraordinary.
Come on Ennis!!
Mens Basketball, Russia Spain - Great game, the Russians proved they can survive really high pressure, great 3s.. They deserved the win!
Spain was great as well
Amazing finish in the ladies' triathlon
