And Apple throws it away.
OMG we are so spoiled. Phelps could have been his own country and Ledecky was in her prime a few years back. You can’t expect that to happen in every Olympics. And I think it is better for every sport when more countries share in the medal haul.I think the Americans are doing pretty well in swimming--we're not dominating, but iMO, that makes the sport more interesting when more countries win medals. I mean, who wasn't on their feet cheering for the Tunisian? Or celebrating that the Aussie women finally have a swimming star? Or the British men--they are KILLING it here. Makes it more exciting.
I fell asleep too! That's why I have the Olympics schedule & results page open in one browser window - so I can update myself whenever I wake up again, lol.Damn I fell sound asleep and missed a lot.
I've seen this event in previous Olympics and always enjoy it. I'm not sure I'd call it frustrating but it's certainly a tremendous challenge! I've only been whitewater rafting once in my life and I can't imagine doing that in a canoe or kayak solo!I think I might be the last person to discover Canoe Slalom? WHAT is this HORRIBLE looking nightmare???? I LOVE it? This looks like the MOST frustrating thing you should ever do. I'm never gonna watch anything else.
I don't know about the women's platform, but one of the men's 3m synchro got silver in Rio with a different partner. I've learned not to expect anything from US diving though so I'm just pleasantly surprised when they do well.I’m amazed at how well the US is doing in diving. Were they expected to medal in synchro?
Yes X 100.Catching up from the morning broadcast--I know nothing about any of the sports I'm watching, but I do know the female synchronized diving commentator has got to be the most annoying of these games.
It's nice watching judged sports I know nothing about--I can just enjoy watching and the results without over the results, judging, who should/should not be there. (Except rhythmic gymnastic--I know nothing about the sport anymore, but I certainly have opinions )

As a teenager, Yusra Mardini fled the war in Syria. She swam for three hours, in the open sea, steering her sinking boat to safety, saving every passenger on board. Then she trekked from Greece to Germany by foot. Today, she competed in 100m Butterfly at the .
Mountain man? It's full ,lined and shaped, and not so scraggly. I actually am amazed it hasn't dried out and gotten breakage considering the amount of chlorine it must be in contact with. He clearly takes care of it.For all the snarking on Michael Phelps' facial hair, I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, that no one is in here commenting about the mountain man beard that Russian diver Evgenii Kuznetsov is sporting.
