Re: Olympic Games 2012 London Thread (All other sports besides tennis)

Great day for Italy surpassing our medal count from 4 years ago, though just by 1 Great volleyball match earlier for bronze and Croatia were too strong in water polo once again, happy with that well earned silver.

The sad part of the day came in with the robbery in boxing, scandalous stuff gifting a win to the Brit Joshua. What a shame really, amateur boxing has awful rules for scoring but today it was just too blatant in favour of the local boy. The most amazing part of it is that Joshua, in the first place, should've been eliminated in the first round were he clearly lost against the Cuban Savon (though the judges somehow had him winning by 1, now in the final they had to invent a 3 point lead in his favour to score the third round after he was dominated in the first two clearly).

Cammarelle, chin up, true winner and way better boxer!

Per aspera ad astra
