I watched his fight. He didn't lose gold, he was nowhere near winning it.

Yeah, that was excellent. It's weird that the BBC et al have been more obsessed with the balding middle-aged competitor with a cock and balls (who also tried her best to keep their name out of the papers after seriously injuring two OAPs in a car crash) instead of the Brit who got a a medal, let alone the gold or silver winners.

Anyone know the reason for Ben Whittakers performance at the boxing medal ceremony.

yep, the reason is he's a massive twat

I got that impression from his q/f fight. He was lucky to beat the Russian in the s/f. Most boxers are a bit flash . I am suprised that no one from the GB Olympic commitee has had a word about class and sportsman ship.

It's only later that you get to see the full result of a race and only then if your tv provider bothers to show that bit of the feed, which Claro annoyingly don't always do.

How long does it take for a computer to take the results of the woman’s heptathlon final race and add the points to the total??
Is it just me or is the announcing if results very very slow in Tokyo?

The scoring system in Sport Climbing makes for some incredible drama. There are three disciplines and you get points for your finishing position. Then your scores are multiplied together to get your final score. So if you finish 2nd, 3rd and 1st, your point total is 6. Even the last place guy coming into the 3rd stage had a chance to win and ended up being able to decide the top 3 positions with his final climb based on how he finished.

The TV coverage or lack of it hasn't worked. The beauty of the Olympics is that it promotes lots of sports than usually only appear irregularly on television and raises the profile of really dedicated sports people. The joy on their faces when they win something compared to the greedy, highly paid, pampered, professional footballers is so uplifting.

Yeah, the IOC like many others are really shooting themselves in the foot. They are chasing money over viewers, which is great in the short term but unsustainable. They will end up with no one watching and wonder where it all went wrong.

Brilliant by the GB Madison women. Never seen such dominance

Adlerhorst 06-08-2021 02:53 PM

Right on the line. :(

I have enjoyed this Olympics. The attitude of a lot of the participants has been a real credit to them.

Has anybody been banned for drugs? I get the feeling that they forgot to bring the drugs tests to make room for all the Covid tests.

KYLIE MINEAGLE 07-08-2021 05:00 AM

Nigerian female sprinter and an Australian show jumper. He was done for testing to the nose sherbert. You would think a show jumper would dope the horse .

The maskers are traditionally a few steps ahead

Paula Radcliffe: What you are doing in a marathon is walking a very fine line between as fast as you can go and maintaining that to finish. Or slightly overcooking it and not being able to finish.

Adlerhorst 08-08-2021 06:41 AM

Lauren Price time.

Adlerhorst 08-08-2021 07:32 AM

That was easy
