    • Another man offering his opinion. Truly disgusted this guy will pass real men like roger and Rafa.

      “#DoubleStandard:
      THURSDAY: When asked about Simone Biles, Novak Djokovic replied, speaking about himself, not Biles, "Pressure is a privilege. If you are aiming to be at the top of the game, you better start learning how to deal with pressure and how to cope with those moments...."
      SATURDAY: Novak Djokovic loses his cool, throws a racket over five rows of seats, breaks a second racket and throws it into the photographers' pit, and then withdraws in a snit from his bronze medal mixed doubles match, leaving his partner unable to compete for a medal she had absolutely earned.”

      • He will pass them because he beats them. He is a dbag but he wins on every surface and beats everyone.

        That said he needs an Agassi serve to the seeds ;^)

        • Another World Record in the 400m hurdles as Sydney McLaughlin lowers her WR from the Trials by nearly half a second to 51.46. Dalilah Muhammad ran the second fastest time ever at 51.58.

          At the rate they're lowering times, if Sydney and Dalilah keep competing against each other that record might be under 50 in a few years.

          Edit: The Bronze Medalist Femke Bol from the Netherlands ran 52.03, under the Olympic Record, and had a look of "what the fuck do I gotta do?" on her face.

            Amazing to see. I always wonder when watching events like this - at what point will someone reach the limit of human perfection and a record will never fall again?

              It's kind of amazing with some of these, the hurdles records are already times that would've been semifinal times in the 400m flat.

              The Long Jump seems to at that point right now, both Men's and Women's records are over 30 years old and nobody has gotten close in the last decade.

                I think a lot of people thought we were pretty close to that in the men's 400M hurdles. Then Warholm and Benjamin came along these last few years and tore it all down.

                  The Women's record (52.34) was 16 years old when the Muhammad-McLaughlin rivalry started taking it down.

                  What Muhammad and McLaughlin have been doing since 2019 is fucking amazing, every championship race they've faced each other in has lowered the World Record.

                  2019 US Nationals: Muhammad 52.20
                  2019 World Championships: Muhammad 52.16
                  2021 Olympic Trials: McLaughlin 51.90
                  2021 Olympics: McLaughlin 51.46

                  • In 2019 both Muhammad and McLaughlin ran in the 4x400 relay (the US won) and with Athing Mu (the 800m champion) able to run a sub 49s 400, does the US run a 4x400 team with no actual 400m runners on it?

                        Some of these races still have potential, others don't. The 400m hurdles are a lot closer to the 400m than the 110M hurdle is to the 100M. Right now, it's pretty impossible to remove a step between the hurdles for 110M, but there's space for removing steps for 400m.

                              Disappointing performance. It seems as if they need to practice as a group more. Not sure the US system, where the trials are only a few weeks before the games really allows for that.

                              • The hack currently on Krystsina Tsimanouskaya's Wikipedia page has to be by Belarus.

                                And as I post it has already been edited.

                                Her photo was replaced by a... ahem... different one. Absolutely appeared to be her, which tells you everything you need to know about the power of modern surveillance.

                                Anyway, Poland gave her a Humanitarian visa so good for them (even though they suck). Were I she I would get the hell outta Eastern Europe, maybe outta the hemisphere entirely. Of course where are you going to run? If the GOP ever gets the White House back they'd just hand her right to them.
