Surprised there isn't a thread up yet. Really enjoy the Olympics as a change of pace to my usual sports viewing. For some reason, it's the only time I feel like watching swimming, volleyball and gymnastics. Pretty cool to watch badminton, table tennis and handball after throwing back a few too.
Honestly the start of the Olympics was really great. I am not talking just about the effects, and fireworks, i am talking about the preparation that involved a lot of people, and everything was done in time, with a specific theme.
They manage to attract the attention not just on the placements, staff. After all its about UK, a place with a big tradition in sport, and a big financial potential .
Play the Best Games ever. This is the best opportunity for you.
2.5 hour rain delay in the middle of a 4 hour match. First two sets took under an hour, haha. Up until about the 40th game of the 3rd set Raonic seemed to have more chances at breaking serve. Then he gave Tsonga break points in 3 separate games, and that was that. Tsonga looked completely drained though. He called for a challenge at one point just to get the 5 second break.
Medalist in both the winter and summer Olympics raced her last race today. In long track speed skating she won many world championship medals and 2 bronze, one silver and one gold Olympic medal from 2002-2010. In cycling she 2 bronze medals at the 1996 summer Olympics and today ended her career coming in 5th in the time trials in London. Way to go Clara!
