But not the gayest olympic event. The winter olympics win that one without a doubt:

But do they shower together after completing the event?

I know Nastia had a great beam score just now, but this whole thing just has a weird feeling about it. I wouldn't bank on any medals just yet.

I agree, and I'm by no means a professional gymnastics judge, but I can do relatively basic math. If the deductions that they speak about are legit, than some of these scores are questionable at best.

Fantastic finish. Good to see the good ol USA take something in gymnastics (gold and silver, women's all around).

At least our anthem gets to be played once in the gym.

While I know very little about gymnastics, last night gave me chills at times. Liukin carried the team in the all-around and she got rewarded for it yesterday. Those two deserved what they got and I'm glad they kept those cheating Chinese out of the top two.

Well, seems we've got plenty of excuses to use in the event we don't win the medal count. Cool. Oh, and my take on the whole gymnastics controversy? Legal or illegal, if an 8 year-old can out-tumble/flip/dismount our best 16-plus year-olds, more power to her. Unless we truly have a bunch of opressed 4th graders that are better than what we sent to Beijing, which I doubt (though I'll defer to any TCF gymnastics experts who suggest otherwise), making a stink about it seems like nothing more than sour grapes. YMMV.


It is to be expected whenever China is playing. They are known for bringing older kids into the LLWS, things like that.

Here they used one of their best gymnasts - a great one that appears to be 14 years old, disqualifying her due to Olympic rules.

I assume you're an Ohio State fan like most people on this board. Let's say that Michigan has a 16 year old or an academically ineligible player that runs roughshod over Ohio State, gaining 200 yards and helping Michigan win. Is it sour grapes if you complain about Michigan breaking the rules? The NCAA wouldn't think so. They would and should force Michigan to forfeit that game and take further action against the schools.

I realize cheating goes on all the time in sports, but I also realize that when someone gets caught breaking the rules that a penalty should be levied. China appears to have gotten caught changing the birthdates of at least one athlete, a very good one too, to get her into the games. If it proves true and they get caught then the logical thing to do is disqualify any competition that she participated in.

Or should rules not be followed?

Honestly, the Olympic medal totals don't matter to me and never have because I don't really care much about the Olympics. I think the event has become a major sham over the years and that the org that runs it, the IOC, is a very corrupt organization. I greatly dislike the Chinese government and feel that by even awarding China it shows how corrupt the IOC is.

We get Russia for the winter games in two years. Think many of these countries will show some backbone and boycott the games unless Russia gets their act together?


Mac, you know better than that. The U.S. is done boycotting - there is way too much money involved. Mark Cuban was correct, money is now what much of the Olympics is about.

Actually, there has been some push to move the 2014 Winter Games to avoid any boycott.

It really wouldn't have much point if only the US boycotted. If Australia, Canada, the UK, France, Germany, all the former Soviet Republics and satellite states, etc all boycotted then it would make the 2014 games absolutely pointless. Of course, all of those countries could get together and probably force a move of the games. I believe Russia has already invested quite a bit of cash on facilities, etc so a move would hurt them. They could also be blocked from competition, a move that might make the Putin autocracy more unpopular over there.

hmmm, not sure sure what you're asking Okt??? If you mean his play has been suspect, that you expected him to be THE team leader or that I should have expected him to keep up with his defense & pass-first game over scoring in the Olympics???

How about that Bolt and the WR run in the 100 meters, Jesus Mary and Joseph. The dude was show boating about 10 meters from the finish and still popped off a 9.69.

No doubt there will be some questioning how legit it was, IMO as of right now it was damn impressive.

Sorry wab, I thought you were saying you didn't think winning the gold was possible versus not thinking it possible to appreciate Bron any more. I'm witchu, though most in the nat'l media are yet oblivious to the fact he is THE leader of this squad.

My 7 and 10 yr old daughters asked to stay up to see that swim before they went to bed. That's significant in my house.

Lost in the Phelps phenomena is the fact a 41 yr old US mother damn near came back to win a the womens 4x100. She's 5 months younger than I am. That's just dirty.

Heard on the radio why the times in the pool were so fast and why so many WR were set, one of the reasons is b/c they shut down two lanes, so fewer lanes were used meaning less water disturbed for the other racers.

Sound nuts that it could make that much difference but a couple of former swimmers said it makes a big difference.

If I'm not mistaken, it's a competition to see who the best in the world is at receiving and disposing of stolen goods. The U.S. hopefuls in the event hail from Detroit.

Man, now that swimming is done and beach volleyball and women's gymnastics are done, I would think NBC is gonna see a dive in ratings this week. There just are not a lot of "names" in Track & Field this Olympics. Bolt is incredible and I will be sure to watch him blow away the field in the 200.....and I love the relay races.....but the on the edge of your seat excitement is just so different.

If you've ever heard of a web-site called Crossfit, it was started by a gymnastics coach, but is frequented by MMA and other fitness freaks.

One of the macho levels of achievement or should I say feats of strength are to achieve the iron cross. One other one people shoot for are muscle ups. These folks believe in combining gymanstics with olympic lifting. That doesn't necessarily mean that olympic men's gymnasts are bad-ass, but some of the bad-asses around there believe mixing in gymnast skills are great for them. I also have seen a lot of hand stand progressions as well.

team GB have 12 medals in cycling including 7 golds

no other nation has more than 1 gold in cycling or more than 3 total medals

also set 2 world records

pretty cool

it's nice dominating in sports like Cycling, Rowing and Sailing

but Athletics(Track and Field) is where its at

we won high jump silver and womens 400m gold but i can really only see another medal in the triple jump for GB then I think thats it.

we certainly wont retain our relay gold since no members of that team are even in Beijing.

still 3rd in the medals table with 15 golds or maybe it's 16.

She always looks goofy while she is running, but she's hot (not sure if she is the hottest, but she's def up there). I had a bunch of classes with her in college, and a buddy of mine dated her for awhile. She's quarter each native american, black, norwegian and french.

Sorry to burst your bubble, though you'll probably appreciate it; Meet Leryn Franco, Paraguayan javelin thrower/model, and not the other way around.

She's quarter each native american, black, norwegian and french.


Is there a formula for figuring that out?

...and which do we blame for the big feet that cost her the gold?

Gotta obviously blame the French, right? Also, I watched it last night and it sucked again. I didn't think I'd be that bummed out over any track event, but I'm crushed.

Give her credit, though. She sacked up, put on her happy face and gave an interview directly after. Minutes after the interview, she was filmed leaning on a wall balling her eyes out. Too bad; at 26, this was her first/last opportunity.

This absolutely kills me...

You were one lucky guy and your buddy was even luckier!!!

When my wife leaned over to me the other night and said Lolo is one pretty woman that pretty much clinched it for me that I wasn't seeing things...God bless HiDef TV

Not surprising, she's overcome alot. Her dad walked out when she was young and ended up in prison, the rest of the family was homeless for periods at a time, she changed schools alot, lived with some more well off families in high school so she could stay there and run track. The first time she ever had anything was a year or two ago when she landed her Oakley deal. You'd never know it though, always smiling and always upbeat/positive about everything.

Too bad; at 26, this was her first/last opportunity.


That sucks horribly. She'll no doubt win US Titles, World Titles, Pan Am titles, but she'll never get that shot at Olympic gold again. Two freakin hurdles away with the lead....

Look wise, she isn't my cup of tea. That is the only time I've ever seen her, though.

Give me a gymnast all day.

I'd agree that she's not the best looking chick at the Olympics (maybe not even in my top 5) but she does have this "Karen from The Office" thing going for her, which is nice.
