She's 24 - she's just a jerk.
I guess so but a part of me wanted to remind her that someone, who is not American, beat you even after you were standing by her slapping your thigh.LYDIA JACOBY!!!! That was amazing!!!
Having not particularly paid any attention to other stuff on Lily King, she was very classy in that interview. So at least she pulled together her sportsmanship when she needed to.
Michael needs to shave. He looks 10-15 years older than he is.
Lilly King sounds like kind of a brat.
Her treatment of Efimova in Rio made it clear what kind of person she was, though I can't say Efimova is very impressive either. So it's nice to have a winner one can actually cheer for.I read an article and thought the same thing
ETA: this one
So Lily King isn't a brat, but Titmus' coach is a total asshole.Why is Lilly King’s leg slapping any different from Zagitova’s leg slapping (did it every time before she took her opening pose), or Murphy’s chest slapping, or any other similar behavior that athlete’s use to loosen up?
Because she doesn't say she does it to loosen up, she says she gets in her opponents space and does it to freak them out. She says she likes playing "mind games" with people as they are trying to prepare for the race by trying to ask them random things or tell them things to throw them off their game. Her dad said she's arrogant, and her coach said she's a sore loser who throws tantrums.Why is Lilly King’s leg slapping any different from Zagitova’s leg slapping (did it every time before she took her opening pose), or Murphy’s chest slapping, or any other similar behavior that athlete’s use to loosen up?
I didn't see this fluff piece. What I saw yesterday was a coach getting passionately excited about his athlete's success. Winning Olympic gold isn't a small feat.Okay, did you actually watch the training fluff piece of titmus’s coach, or are you still just commenting on something you didn’t see?
Their team was so excited to win the bronze. The commentator noted that they were trying not to jump up and down with happiness as each of the teams that dove after them came up short in the scores. Wonderful result for and !Mexico medals in women's synchronized 10M final behind the Americans . The Chinese ran away with it from the start and everyone else was more messy than not.
