2016 Summer Olympics

Post by Kiskaloo on Sat 6 Aug 2016 - 15:03

Cheer on your team and discuss the events of the Games of the XXXI Olympiad.

The US scores the first Gold of the games in the Women’s 10m Shoot, the first for the US in this category and secured by Virginia Thrasher, ranked 23rd in the world and not expected to medal, period.

Another big upset was in the Men's Road Race in Cycling, where a collision took out two of the favorites and allowed Belgium's Greg Van Avermaet to score Gold. Van Avermaet had come in 92nd at the 2012 Games in this event.

Mario Bossi would make a better handler than Marco Toni. Come to think of it, so would Christiano.

Elizaveta didn't jump - she was pushed.

Sofia was pregnant. It would have been a boy.

Have to say, for all the flack Rio received in the run-up, I can't think of a more exceptional Games. So many upsets. So many underdogs going the distance. So many new records. Athleticism at it's very best.

I've been watching CBC (Canada) more than NBC, but they're about as bad at focusing on their athletes. Smile
