    US softball bats stay cold all tournament, managing to barely win every game. Except the last one. Japan's pitching overwhelmed the cold bats. And Japan's hot bats (they had a lot of hits) broke through the US hot pitching- the US giving up the only two earned runs the entire tournament to Japan.

    So now we know why Japan added Softball to the Olympics.

    Alaska, home of Anchorage swimming pool
    It's length thirty meter, width six meter
    Filtration system a marvel to behold

    Yeah, it's in Anchorage and I don't think I've ever seen it in 50m mode ever. All the other pools (there are quite a few) are 25 yd pools.

    To follow up Tunisia's gold, the Philippines just got their first gold, 55 kg women's weightlifting- who beat the defending Olympic champion from China. And it was VERY dramatic. Have to say, the Chinese woman missed a chance- for her last lift, it did not appear to be that hard- she did it super quick. Whereas Diaz from the Philippines added 1kg, and really worked hard to clean and jerk it. Great watch.
    This result is making the rounds in these parts!!

    Oh I agree, due process is a thing. But allegations go so far back, looks like another example of things not being handled when they should have been.
    again just a joke that shacarri isn’t there

    As it has been for a long time, so how was the USSR shown as CCCP?

    You'd think at least the countries would be listed locally in Japanese.

    Way, way, way too much power to NBC.

    Even when compared to instantaneous velocity of a football or hockey player?
