    Re: Olympic Spoiler Thread - You've Been Warned.

    I saw a clip on Facebook where Usain Bolt was being interviewed and stopped the interview because the US anthem was being played. that's pretty cool of him.

    Then there is the opposite side of that -- If the entire Russian team was banned, some of their athletes could have competed under the Olympic flag with a special appeal. However, the one Russian female gymnast who was allowed to compete said she would never have competed under the Olympic flag. She said she either was going to compete under the Russian flag or not at all. You have to respect that.

    Not only does the USA have the best players, they also have the best coaching staff. They are masters at making half-time adjustments. The two plays Japan had run successfully in the first half were totally shut down in the second half.

    They were all over the court, like there was 3 or 4 of them.

    Brasil also played lights out, but ya, not her best match by far. Not completely sure it would have made a difference.

    They've spoken about that stretch of her season quite a bit during games the past week or whatever we're up to now. Had to get 12 tournaments I believe, so she/they didn't have much choice without giving up Rio.
