Looks like they're not showing the 1500m final. Not that I'm complaining
Oh I think that's a shame that they're not showing the 1500m final having seen the event live this afternoon.
I'm amazed at how much shorter Soni is than the rest of the relay team. I figured that most of the Olympic swimmers would be at least six feet tall.
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!! I like her
Shelly Ann's ponytail in the colorful ribbon is adorable.
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.
Swimming medal ceremony - at least we have a flag.
3539 and counting.

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.
"“My bronze feels like gold,” said the bronze medalist Carolina Kostner
Neither did Lance, then, until now...it takes a while for the testing to catch up with the drugging.
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?
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.
They chucked the men's 1500 swim
