    BOA Boss Defends Ye Shiwen

    Teenage Chinese swimmer Ye Shiwen is not a drug cheat, the British Olympic Association's chairman has said, after a US coach cast doubt on her world record-breaking swim.

    Lord Colin Moynihan said Ye, 16, had passed drug tests, was "clean" and deserved recognition for her talent.
    Earlier, former British Olympic champion Adrian Moorhouse said the rumours appeared to be a case of sour grapes.

    "The Chinese might have just found this really talented kid, who can work really hard, has the perfect shape and can cope with all the pressure thrown at her," he told the BBC.

    Suspicions over Ye's performance were heightened when it was pointed out that in the final 50m of her race she swam faster than the winner of the men's race, Ryan Lochte.

    However, her world-record time was still 23 seconds slower than Lochte's winning time, and several of Lochte's competitors were faster than her over the final 50m.

    Chinese officials also pointed out that Lochte was easing to the finish, comfortably in the lead, whereas Ye had to battle to the end to take first place.
    So the general consensus seems to be the US official was being a whiney ass.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Annalise Murphy is leading in the fourth race of the sailing!

    It just dawned on me that Annalise sounds vaguely rude depending on how you say it.

    Gold and bronze for Germany and silver for Sweden in the eventing. Ireland getting a 7th place is quite good!

    Great success for the team to repeat the result from Beijing.

    (Actually for the third time, but I'm willing the Athens skandal go -unlike the German presenter. "Seit 2008 wird zurückgeritten!" )

    While I'm waiting for the gymnastics to start, I'm watching the female weightlifters show me their snatches.

    Novak divine in beating Roddick, only 6 unforced errors and 3 games dropped.

    I think he could win this; he loves playing for Serbia.
