  • Official XXX Olympics Results - Spoilers Welcome

    Figured we might as well have a separate thread to discuss live results as they happen to eliminate any butthurt complaints from those who still wish to discuss general Olympics stuff in the other thread. 19 sports on tap for today.

    Mens 400 IM prelims .... Phelps cut that really close. Or perhaps he's got a cold/flu?

      The buffering has been terrible online for me. What the hell? If this is a sign of things to come, it will be unwatchable for the finals and such. Good job NBC.

        The US has two shooters in the Women's 10M air rifle finals, Sarah Scherer and Jaime Lynn Gray. This will be the first opportunity for a medal.

          China grabs the first medals of the Olympics, with a Gold and Bronze in women's air rifle. Poland gets the Silver. US placed 5th and 7th.

            USA beats South Korea in the Men's Team Archery semifinals, 224-219, after trailing 110-109 at the halfway point. US will meet the Italy/Mexico winner in the finals at 1:00 ET. I assume it will be on MSNBC; the semi was on that channel. You wouldn't think that watching archers shoot at a target would be that exciting, but it is a very watchable event. A match only takes about 20-25 minutes.

              Here's a spoiler for Brazil women's soccer: Marta pretended to be hurt but wasn't. I don't need to tell you which game, it applies to all of their games.

                Agreed very watchable. Italy leads 110-106 at the halfway point. Going to need to make a pretty good comeback here.

                Exciting stuff! USA USA!!

                  Archery was a great watch. Too bad they couldn't get the gold. First medal for the US a silver.

                    Tough loss. I got pretty amped up when Italy needed a 9 just to force a tie but the Italian guy just got it inside the 10-mark to clinch the win. Great drama and great match. Definitely tough pill to swallow initially when you liked your chances for atleast a tie but a clutch clutch shot to win it for Italy. Gotta tip your cap to that especially after he shot an 8 on the previous end. Nice rebound.

                    Silver Medal. Still pretty cool and the USA is now on the board in the medal count.

                      Never been an archery fan, but that was pretty cool.
                      Congrats to the US men on winning the silver

                        So Michael Phelps finishes 4th, doesn't get any medal. That's surprising. Lochte with the gold.

                          So the guy who trained his *** off beat the crap out of the guy who smoked pot and didn't race in the event for three years before deciding to try again. Huh.
