    I was hoping Clara Hughes would manage to win a medal, it would have been really nice for her to add another one from Summer Olympics. But she's still had a pretty amazing career - Michael Phelps certainly isn't going to match her record

    I was hoping for her as well. Only a handful of people have ever won medals in both winter and summer games and even fewer have done it more than once, at multiple games. It's amazing. But, for all that, she's pretty obscure in the world of sports and should be recognized more than she is.

    I just looked it up and only 4 athletes have won medals at both summer and winter olympics and she is one of them.

    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    My cycling live updates are crap. From it I can find that Wiggo is 1st at the second time check. Martin might be 2nd? I guess froom is 3rd? And Phinney must have fallen off the pace but they aren't being very forthcoming. Other sports are so much better at PBP

    British announcer dude for NBCOlympics Men's 3M Synchro is such a dork, he makes Tim Daggett sound like Edward R. Murrow.

    But it certainly is entertaining!

    ETA: The dork is Leon Taylor! He's a friggin' riot.

    I suspect it is a matter of pride to actually finish - though he is just coasting along!!

    Thanks! Poor Taylor. He'll be miserable if he finishes in 4th in both the Road Race and the Time Trial.

    I like Wiggo and I'm perfectly happy with him winning but Tony Martin is my favorite Time Trialist so I demand a medal for him!

    Poor Sanchez! If he's been passed by Wiggo, he's been passed by a lot of people..
