Wow NBC is doing nice fluff about the Jamaican runners. Long jump got majorly shafted though.

Women's 50 meter in swimming - Kromo-de-who-who?

Full props to Hicks/Gaines for getting that tongue twister of a name. Here I thought figure skating had the trickiest names.

Shelly Ann's ponytail in the colorful ribbon is adorable.

I think so too, she seems like such a sweet girl, and good for her for using her glory from Beijing to go to school alongside keeping up top shape with her training. Her reaction to her win was great! :)


What the eff are they going to fill the last hour of coverage with??

ETA: I can answer that, probably a Phelps tribute/documentary/shoe-licking ramblings. Not that he doesn't deserve the recognition, because he really does.

Wait, all sports remind me of bad gym class except swimming. :-P

Enough of this running around in circles. I wanna see the sports NBC must deem non- glam like mtn biking or whatev.

I'm happy for Jeter too. She has a good attitude and I'll continue to give her the benefit of the doubt that she's clean until a test shows differently.
The top 6 ladies all under 11.00. Excellent final.

Michael Johnson was thought to be an "enhanced" runner too, yet he never tested positive for any banned substances.

Neither did Lance, then, until now...it takes a while for the testing to catch up with the drugging.

I know they showed the 10,000m race live this afternoon but I'd like to see it again... And it would be great if they could mention the heptathlon, you know?

I'm so glad that Brendan Hansen got another race, he really worked for that Bronze breast, and I think that might have been his only event prior to this relay?

Yes it was, he didn't qualify at the US trials for the 200 meters.

Yeah, Marion Jones didn't fail tests even when she was clearly doping. It makes it hard to really trust that any of them are telling the truth.

My husband finally gave up on seeing Ennis's abs and went to bed.

It will probably make late night.
