    Viola has the most handstand. They need to send her to work with some of the gymnasts. That was maybe the best handstand I've seen in the Olys.

    These diving prelims are a little just because these are prelims. The only drama is whether Espinosa will qualify to semis.

    I'm wondering what events where medals were at stake NBC chose not to show. Oh well.

    It's either a very big ice rink, or there's a lake under there.

    Just popping in to ask if the McKayla is not impressed tumblr was posted somewhere on fsu.

    As a space nerd I liked her unimpressed with Curiosity landing.

    Katie Bell is a little OCD. And a little strange.

    Starting when they come back from break. So in 2 minutes or so.

    Yes, but she's disguised as a Muggle and diving. You can tell it's really the wizard Katie Bell from the way she does her flick-and-swish movement before she goes off the board.

    I know they said it doesn't matter they were playing another American team, but I feel like both teams are beinga little soft with each other. The game against China was amazing; I want to see that level of playing for the gold medal game.

    Just getting started and missed the diving. I thought it was cool that Merritt changed his whole approach to the first hurdle this year. Did they say if that was from his coach? However it happened, it has made a huge improvement for him.

    I don't really dig beach v-ball (no pun intended), but I applaud those two ladies wholeheartedly! What an achievement!

    I think all of the NBC Athletics broadcasters sekretly carry Jamaican flags in their back pockets.

    I can't believe how early the Jamaican runner slowed down! He nearly didn't have a guarantee into the final! Dude, you have to run the whole race.
