  1. Well the top isn't a surprise. There wasn't much doubt that China would dominate in golds and the US would dominate in total medals.

    Congrats to Tajikistan, Togo, and Afghanistan for winning their first medals (did I forget anyone?). What a great Olympics for Great Britain too.

  2. What's wrong with the American runners at these Games? First they aren't able to counter the Jamaican opposition (I have a certain feeling why that is so...), but then they also commit their own mistakes. But probably we're now experiencing how much of past American successes on the track were based on doping, and how the athletic scene in the US really looks like with stricter doping controls.

    The lack of roids caused them to drop the baton? ;)

  3. Not to sound like the poor sport American, but what the heck is up with the format in softball?

    First, the US dominates every team in pool play, earning the number one seed. For some reason, they play the number 2 seed (Japan) in bracket play. They beat them again. The 3 and 4 seeds play against each other in order to face Japan. Then, Japan gets another shot at the US.

    Just looking at that, it sounds like your normal double elimination tournament. You would think the format would require Japan to beat the US twice to win gold. Oh well, what can you do.

  4. I look at it this way. Bolt broke the WR in what might be the two most prestigious events of the Games. If someone would have taken 3 seconds of the 5000m WR and 7 seconds off the 10,000m WR and I came on here an said what they did was more impressive than Phelps, you would call me crazy. What Bolt did was incredible, but it doesn't compare to Phelps who won 8 gold medals with 17 races in 8 days.
