    The Black Ferns (New Zealand woman's rugby team) won gold in women's sevens. Performed a Haka afterwards. Always amazing to see.

    McKayla Maroney has been diving deep into her experiences on Twitter and Instagram explaining just how ****ed things were under the Larry Nassar era of USA Gymnastics.

    Like the metal she got in 2012 in the vault. While doing it with a concussion, broken nose, broken foot, and shattered shins.

    Bobby Finke did it again. Trail the first 29 lengths, destroy the field in the last 50M. So fun to watch. First 1500M free gold for the Americans since 1984!

    So, apparently the International Amateur Boxing Federation is still suspended by the IOC and the IOC itself is actually organizing the boxing at the Olympics.

    im ****ed at the years of allegations and all of that being ignored
    Which is exactly why they’re still just allegations….soft pedal the investigation long enough and the athlete can sneak in an entire career under a cloud, but before the storm breaks.

    Speaking of fascinating sports only seen in the US every four years….Water Polo. those players, men and women, are probably the fittest athletes in the Olympics. So glad I am watching that sport.

    Yes.

    1. Netball is not in the Olympics.
    2. Kep said "soccer-like" goals. That's team handball, not netball.
    Was just a guess - adding a crazy sport like that wouldn't be the unheard of and I missed the part about "soccer like goals". Meh.

    I found out about netball this week. From the videos I watched it seems like originalist basketball, except you can’t play defense on the ball, so once you get it to someone down low it’s basically a free point.
