DiRado upsets Hosszu by .06 seconds for 200 backstroke gold

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRYS38zDz2U

Yesterday was another great day for Team USA (in spite of the Woman's Soccer team completing tanking and getting eliminated). But the best moment was and is Maya's epic comeback. Before the race even started, I already gave the Gold Medal to Hosszu given how dominating she has been thus far. There was a moment where after the race was in full effect, that I didn't even think Maya would even get Bronze, let alone Gold. The lead that Hosszu had was just too big and yet, the final 2 laps showed the world never to give up and she pulled off the impossible. It was an amazing comeback. Wow.

Report: Mom says Lochte held up; USOC says he wasn't


So much for security. The biggest issue going into the Rio games, besides the health risk of Zika had to do with crime and sure enough, I've been hearing nothing but stories like this. It's not just athletes, but regular people attending the games being assaulted and robbed when they leave the arena.

So, Kerri Walsh / April Ross rebound tonight to win the Bronze Medal in Beach Volleyball. It wasn't looking too good after the first set. I was concerned, especially after last nights shocking loss that bumped them from the Gold Medal game. Walsh looked horrible last night. She played horrible. It was so unlike her. She was making unforced error after unforced error and I thought tonight was going to be more of the same after losing the first set. But she and April dug down deep and started to play like their former selves. It's not Gold, but at least they are going home with a Bronze. It's better than nothing.

I'm already going through withdrawals. I need my Olympic fix! Ack! Watched the Closing Ceremony last night and it was awful. Rio put on a sh*tty Olympic games. Opening and Closing.....meh. I think Tokyo will put on a much better one for sure. London certainly put on an epic show 4 years ago. Overall, I thought the amount of content we got to watch was pretty solid. A lot of variety, but I wanted even more than what we got. I feel like I still only got to watch maybe 10-15% of the games.

Isn't there a kind of special Olympics coming up in September?

I watched the Men's 6 Man Volleyball. USA vs. Russia and it was amazing. The part I saw, Russia dominated... only slightly but they were on their game.

Just incredible speed and strength. I don't understand why Volleyball is not a major sport. Way more stuff going on then Baseball or Football.
