Bronze for Daley. Good performance from him. At the start of the day, he would have taken that.

Congratulations to Boudia on winning Gold



The commentators are saying that all Chinese athletes who don't win gold have to publicly apologize to the whole nation... WTF?

That is ridiculous. Its a sporting competition, not a life and death matter. They need to get things into perspective. I can't stand politicians of any kind - left, right, whatever - loath them all. The Chinese athletes have done extremely well. They should just go and tell there politicians to go and shove it.

Tom Daley really is the most adorable thing ever. Like a billion kittens and puppies frolicking on a rainbow.

The USA diving drought is DONE so hard. ;)

David Boudia was amazing :eek: and hoooootttttttttt :grope: and what a fabulous performance from Tom Daley. To win a medal at this Olympics after ALL the insane hype over the last four years, as well as losing his Father is just a huuuuge achievement. Well done Tom and so proud of you for keeping your cool and delivering your best when it mattered!! :respec:

The best part for me is that now I can not WAIT to watch this on NBC tonight. It is one event where the commentators add something to the event. The lady who commentates for diving is simply the best.

Oh my goodness! Boudia wins? Wow! We saw him at winter nationals last year and he was amazing. I'm so excited for US diving this olympics, I think having seen them in person makes it more exciting. I highly recommend people go to a meet if one is nearby.

Kudos to Boudia - he maintained such consistency with nearly all his dives. And to think he only very narrowly made it into the final! :cheer2:

I think Qiu got too relaxed with always having such a big lead over everyone else that he allowed himself to go loose on a couple of his dives.

Daley - I'm just glad he didn't end up winning, let's put it that way. IMO, he got a huge gift even being on the podium, but then that's all water under the platform now, isn't it? :P

Chinese gymnastics team was a good example of why qualifying only needs to be good enough to make the final. They were horrible in their quals, and also won gold. Guess Boudia drew inspiration from that idea...just get to the finals, they are a new day.

So sad for Mitchum. And glad Daley got a medal.
