Our hometown girl, Elizabeth Beisel, won a silver in the 400m IM against the Chinese girl who beat Ryan Lochte's personal best time, and he holds the world's record. Don't ask how she came out of nowhere and did it.
Go figure. I streamed that race live and enjoyed it more than anything else this week. She also won a bronze when Missy Franklin won the gold tonight in the 200m backstroke. We're very proud here!
Wait - the men are all done with gymnastics???
No rings? How can they call that covering men's gymnastics?
I'm going to say something I used to hear older folks say when I was little: "why, when I was a kid"... they showed every team's performance for every sport. But now with people's attention spans only about 2 seconds long, they try to squish too many different events into a night of coverage instead of dedicating a night to one or two sports and covering them completely.
No rings??? For real? I'm crushed, SW.
I missed the men's gymnastics altogether. Bummer. I must have blinked.
I'm in rehearsal for Wizard Of Oz, so I can't stream any day this week, but I it's my favorite way of watching the Olympics.
Can't wait to hear about all of your adventures, Venus.
Wonder if Turnip or any other old WTFer is involved in the inner workings of the Olympics in any way.
