I do wonder in swimming why there isn't a 800m for men or a 1500m for women. Or 50m in the breaststroke, butterfly, or backstroke.

Guess they switched things around a bit.

They can do that when it's not live. I hate it but what are you gonna do?

I'd rather have Track & Field the first week and swimming the 2nd.

That would be perfect. I'm pretty meh about track.


I do like that the event finals in gymnastics is spread out, though. I'm nervous for the U.S. men. Not sure if they will medal.

I think there's a really good chance the men won't medal. I don't know much about the men though. I'm hoping that Louis Smith (?) will win the PH gold for Great Britain. It's the pommel horse though so god knows what's going to happen.

I'm nervous for Maroney. I'm afraid that she'll try to get a 10 E score for her Amanar and land on her ass. Plus I'm worried that all the talk of her being a lock will jinx her. :shuffle:

Wrestling starts tomorrow. It will be on MSNBC and on NBC Sports. This year the women join in too. I don't love watching wrestling but the wrestlers and the weightlifters have by far the most emotional reactions to winning.

I keep forgetting Lochte isnt younger than Phelps. Ive been too busy to go into the swim thread and hear other peeps opinions of his performance at tbis Games.
I'm kinda unspoiled tonite. Didnt know about that weird false start in the 1500.

btw how much of Ennis other events were shown at other times?

At least three of them were shown last night.

LOL at how leisurely the 1500 looks--la la la, just taking a nice swim.

It may have been a shorty of a jump, but British Ginger Jumper was foxy. :grope:

She's a (former?) boxer, silly.

I don't know about the 1500 for women but I believe the shorter distances are at worlds. The swimming federation wants the shorter distances at the olympics but the IOC says no.

Meh I'm in much greater suspense about the Mars rover landing tomorrow than about any of the events nbc just promoted. :p

Just saw the teaser for gymnastics for tomorrow. One of the girls - Jordan? Aly? - used an adverb. "I want this so badly". AN ADVERB!!!!!! Yeah! It's one of my most exciting moments of the night. Someone learned how to use English correctly. I'm overjoyed.

It was Aly.

Not that I took special note of it or anything :shuffle:.
