- Epke Zonderland and Fabian Hambuchen's highbar routines. I expected Epke to be great. What I did not expect, based on how he'd done in the rest of the competition, was for Fabian to also be amazing. So much fun to watch.
- The Ugandan Stephen Kiprotich winning men's marathon ahead of two Kenyans. And Meb Keflezighi moving up from around 17th to 4th! Then the Brazilian, Marilson dos Santos, in 5th!
- The women's 4x100 relay being won by a mile. Unbelievable.
- The old folks, Jordan Jovtchev and Oksana Chusovitina making finals in Gymnastics. Jordan doing really well but for the dismount. And Oksana hopes to come back for the next Olys!
- The amazing Marcel Nguyen in the men's all around
- Beth Tweddle's uneven bar routine and resulting bronze medal
- Poor John Orozco. I felt so bad for him.
- USA gymanastics pommel horse. We need to bring in someone to redo our entire pommel program. We've been too weak on this event for too long.
