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

Too good Farah 5 and 10km, good to see the moronic tactics from the other African runners but Farah was smart and deserved his rewards.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Got to love Walcott in the javelin. Nice to see some good throwers outside Europe (and US)

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Brazil is playing really, really well. Playing like champions. And USA has played the last two sets like a prelim match. At this point, Brazil deserves the Gold. They're fighting more for it.

2 Finns left now, shame that the Euro bronze medalist Mannio couldn't get a decent result here. Nice to see Pitkämäki throwing over 80 twice in a row

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

This has turned into a joke. We're not even playing like a Bronze team. And, during the time out the coach calmly says "It's tough out there". No shit, coach.

Kudos to Brazil, they earned this match.

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

Javelin going differently as I expected as far as the favorites go... Vesely hasn't even cleared 82 with 1 throw left and Thorkildsen hasn't been too good either.

Mannio 3rd, Pitkämäki 4th

They should fire him. The last thing he should be doing is babying them.

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

So still no Olympic gold for USA women's volley. This will be 3rd silver.
7MPs And 1st one converted. Ive seen only last 10 mins but Americans played quite poorly.

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

Javelin is really up for grabs, not a great level. Walcott leading with slightly under 85, anyone could beat that with a dream throw.

Brazil defend their title 3-1 in the volleyball.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

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

This match totally has me speechless. I get coming out and sucking and getting whipped, but not dominating the first set so handily and then getting played right off the court.
