Well, we managed to eliminate 3 of the remaining 5 players (sorry @allezfred that McIlroy is one of them). Morikawa and Pan heading to 18th hole once more.

Oh no! I didn't realise the Men's Floor Final was on and missed the whole thing 😓

That was a pretty cool golf play off though...

Never heard the Israeli anthem before, it's nice.

Also congratulations to CT Pan and his caddy/wife for the bronze at the Men's Golf ☺️

I just can’t get into the track and field stuff.
It's the opposite for me. I just can't get into swimming but track and field is kind of the heart of the Olympics for me. (Even though I'd never do any of it myself).

Yeah, they do. Biosecurity is actually a big thing in international equestrian competition. And the horses are required to have passports that include vaccination status and infectious disease testing.
If only we could all be horses sometimes...

They're actually at around 28% vaccinated which isn't much lower than some Southern states.
Exactly. :shuffle:

High jump time!

Your fun fact: Brandon Starc, the Australian, is the younger brother of Mitchell Starc, one of the star fast bowlers on the Australian cricket team!

I have to admit I find the posturing before the 100m start to be completely :rolleyes:. Do they practice their choreography before hand?

For those who were watching the cross country earlier/last night, Jet Set, the Swiss horse who was vanned off was euthanized from his injuries on the course. I’m struggling the enjoy any of the competition today after reading that. The problem with horses… they are so fragile.

oops didn’t see Sarah’s post before mine when I posted, mine sounds so shallow after that. Poor Jet Set - that is awful :( I don’t really enjoy the equestrian events for this reason among others.
