I'm watching the US and Turkey in a really tight women's volleyball match. But I gotta go find out when CANOE SLALOM is.

I'm not sure when it airs live but I watched it during the afternoon broadcast on NBC earlier today (canoe slalom). :cheer:

Apparently today's medal event is very late at night. I'll have to catch a replay.

The US Women's Volleyball team finally beat Turkey in 5 sets, but they got a scare!

CBC doing the Rosie MacLennan puff piece now.

Rosie is probably Canada's most underappreciated Olympic athlete. The country's only two-time Summer Olympic champion (in one event), the only gold medalist (at the time) in the London Olympics, but because trampoline gymnastics isn't the most popular event, she's a bit of a side story.

Also with trampoline being a one day event there's less time to talk about her as compared to athletes like Oleksiak or deGrasse who compete on multiple days.

Really was hoping for Murphy. Looks like Dressel is the only US hyped swimmer delivering as expected so far, although Ledecky did get an individual gold.

So…..I guess NBC isn’t going to be showing any track & field for awhile tonight…..if at all?

You’d think they would have showed Athing Mu’s Round 1 in the 800m live. 🤷🏻‍♀️

It was live on USA. I guess because it's just a prelim they were meh about showing it live? Idk they should always show her because she's amazing.

Why do the Chinese athletes all look like they're dressed for the Winter Olympics in their fleece parkas?
