Re: 2016 Summer Olympics - Rio

The Canadians men 4x100 freestyle relay team also made it to the final but it will be tough for them to place with the Americans and Aussies on top.

Just tuning into Brazil and Lithuiania hoops. Wow, Brazil is awful.

USA is going to runaway with it in Hoops. None of these guys can even compete.

Hope she's ok, she wasn't moving at all.

Fantastic finish, the 3 riders reeled in Abbott with about 200m left and just blew past her.

Re: 2016 Summer Olympics - Rio

I did chuckle with about 3.0km left at the one announcer saying he wasn't going to make a prediction after yesterday, and the other one proclaiming that the three behind Abbott were starting to realize one of them wasn't going to medal

Re: 2016 Summer Olympics - Rio

Great gamesmanship in the Women's Weightlifting 53kg. The huge Chinese favorite and leader out of the snatch portion could not complete a lift in the C&J, though I thought she completed her first attempt.

So much strategy in this.

NBC actually showing an indoor volleyball game in full form, but sorry west coast. Will be interesting to see if this runs past 6p and what they do.

Preliminary reports say she was taken to the hospital and "she's conscious and ok". Some of the men crashed at the exact same spot yesterday and two of them suffered fractures.

That's a big upset. Canada were one of the last two teams to qualify, I thought they would get hammered.

On delay in the West coast, but just saw the Dutch woman cycling crash. That looked really bad. Hope her injuries aren't too bad.

Re: 2016 Summer Olympics - Rio

Feeling for this women's team from Egypt. They can play small ball against the stronger teams, but they need some defense. Still wondering how they and the Men's team from Qatar qualified for Beach Volleyball.
