Raisman's floor excercise looked more impressive from a non-professional point of view. But Simone was exceptional as well so deserved.

^ It's crazy! Her fiancé, Jason Kenny now has six Gold medals. If they ever have kids, they better like cycling. :lol:

I can't believe how well Team GB have done this year. It's just phenomenal.

Really pleased to see more medals in Gymnastics and Diving today - probably my fave two disciplines, along with Swimming.

Especially after a perfect first set for Brazil and a great groups phase. But all pundits were talking about how Lang Ping was hiding their potential and it's true. They woke up at the right time, to destroy Brazil.

Girls were trembling in the fifth set, not managed to serve twice in the decisive moments of the match.

For a U-23 team this squad is okay.

I watched most of the Campbell sister's flops and also several other Aussie flops in the pool. Also watched the women's soccer match the other day with Brazil which was devastating. The Aussies flopped when I watched them in beach volleyball and badminton as well. Today I watched 3 events where our athletes surged to an early lead only to flop in the end (mens 10km swim, womens bball, mens rowing).

I am legit a kiss of death. Gonna give up tbh.
Doesn't this already happen with your music faves? :wink: :P
You tried it.

My fave nevah loses! :P

Only the second time [after 1-5 loss to Brazil] in this Olympics Pia Sundhage decided not to go all defence and look what happened. :lol:
