Baby Theo (Damian Warner’s so ) is so cute.
Has Colonel Green slept?Warner records 63.44 m on his second javelin throw attempt. His lifetime best is 64.67, while his season best is 59.46, so he's delivering in yet another event here.
Mayer gets 73.09 on his second attempt, but he's out of road at this point.
I get it... it is worth it to stay up for a favorite athlete.About four and a half hours.
If you Google the name it tells you: "Nina Schultz is a Chinese track athlete who competes in the heptathlon and pentathlon. She was a Canadian citizen at birth and previously competed for Canada."What’s the story here?
Fell asleep early this evening and missed all the morning athletics excitement. So bummed for Devon Allen. Hopefully he'll finally get a medal in Paris.
Pleased as punch that our men's basketball team has made it to the gold medal match. Hopefully they can keep the winning streak up.
Just looked at the soccer results - I'm going to laugh my ass off if the US women lose to Australia. There's not much inherently likable about this team and I'd be fine with them coming home without any medal.
Glancing through the karate results - so apparently Japan isn't winning all the medals there...
Skateboarding - now that's a new event where the USA seriously underdelivered based on pre-Olympics hype, not athletics or swimming or WAG.
Do they also have a Kiss-n-Cry?So, I'm catching up on what I slept through last night - quite fascinated by sport climbing. And I'm amused that they have a "leader's corner" for their competitors to sit and stew in while they wait for the other athletes to pass them in the standings. Glad to know skating isn't alone in this, lol.
I believe Crouser Kovacs Walsh was the exact same result in Rio.
Crouser is a beast. That is all.
Plus allezfred said the water is dirty so these folks must be dedicated... or crazy.Since an Israeli came in 4th in the Marathon swim, it's been getting some coverage here and apparently the water temperature was at least 29c. That must have been absolutely hideous.
(personally swimming even 1K sounds hideous to me, but that's besides the point)
Lol! No, but, really, some of these judged sports, especially skateboarding, should have one! Those skaters are out there on concrete in the heat competing and they should get to go into a nice, shaded, cooling area for their marks after each run.Do they also have a Kiss-n-Cry?
This is a great article about skateboarding at the Olympics:Lol! No, but, really, some of these judged sports, especially skateboarding, should have one!

With approximately 1 medal for every 10,000 residents I think that makes San Marino the most successful country in the history of the Olympics based on the list of all time medalists. Also worth noting that San Marino has 5 athletes at the Olympics, and 3 of them will come home with medals. I hope we get to see video of the parade.Oh and San Marino has won a third medal!
Most successful nation per capita at Tokyo 2020!
I thought gymnastics' rule about only two per country for finals was rough, but the poor US guy in the second 1500M heat ran faster than the US guy in the first heat but isn't going through because he was so far back in his heat.Just catching up on the men's 1500 m semis, and they were wild - Olympic record in the second-semi - should be a really good final.
