          That's going to be played over and over for a long time. Amazing ending. Down by 3 with less than 10 seconds left to win by 1 (2 after the penalty for the review) with less than a second left. Stunning.

          • That last 20 seconds was insane. And it wasn't against some second rate loser or something in some rando meet...

              It's the second final that I watched (I'm sure there are more) where both of the finalists dominated up until that match. And both were super close matches, decided at the very end of the match for the gold.

                    • That was an impressive women's marathon! With cheesehead Molly Seidel getting the bronze! She's the youngest on the team, and this is just her 3 marathon ever. Pretty exciting- she just could not keep with the leaders.

                            This will definitely be remembered as KD's tournament. I expected Dame to have a larger role, but the second man ended up being Tatum for most of the games with Booker coming up big against Australia.

                            To sweep the baseball/softball golds, Japan beat the US, also 2-0 like the softball gold medal game.

                              • Karate is an odd sport.

                                Just watched one of the gold medal matches- apparently contact that is too hard is not allowed at all. One guy kicked, and the other guy walked right into it getting knocked out. The kicker was DQ'd.

                                If that were boxing, the hitter would have won by KO, but here you lose for too much contact.... How do you regulate contact in a contact combat sport?

                                It's also a hard sport to figure out- not much happens, and when it does- there's a lot of yelling. Still not a lot of scoring.

                                I kinda doubt I'll watch it in 2024.
