this will be a weird olympics.. I would definitely be hesitant about going there and competing, if I was an olympian.. especially if I was in sailing etc, that water sounds disgusting. I don't remember brazil being such a wreck when it hosted the world cup.

Lol yeah, if they changed it from 4 to every year I think they'd sit out.  Unless you're a teen gymnast then you probably only get on average 2 of them

I was watching the tennis, I sympathise with djokovic, he is really good, but during the olympics, del potro who has been able to keep up with potro, i've seen hour matches between these two, which djokovic managed to win, but this time potro won.

But I was suprised to see serena williams with 5-6 double faults and lost, she looked upset and helpless as to why it was happening, dont know if because she lost first set she was losing will or energy or maybe something else.

but good to see rafa and murray and potro are still in it.

The gymnastics accident was very disturbing, especially when the guy was holding his legs while his lower brokel leg dangled.
I'm not going to post video, but you can find it on youtube.

Nijah Rahimov with the 214kg C&J in the 77kg class. Seriously WTF? I'm no expert in weightlifting but isn't he meant to stand still once he's got it overhead?

I think that the few seconds he was able to stay still is what the judges went by and the movements were small after he stayed still for a little while. But there have been moments when judges have given when it was a no lift, but to me that looked he stood still enough and arms locked, if it was big movements like no control then it would be different, he looked like he had it under control till later. just my 2 cents
