Why does Sharapova either dominate or completely suck?

Bout time... i was wondering when someone was going to start this.



Serena rolled.

Lithuanian basketball team showed the Dream Team isn't all that "dreamy" ... and should never be compared to the '92 team.

So who gets on the Box of Wheaties after the Olympics?

Gabby Douglas or Micheal Phelps?

Heard Douglas was already on with some cereal that wasn't Wheaties. Corn flakes maybe?

I enjoy watching women's volleyball, and that's not the dirty old man living in my head saying that. They are remarkable athletes and fierce competitors. I certainly could not hang with them, I would turtle.

Interested to hear views on the games from outside the team gb bubble. We had a fantastic 3 gold night in the athletics. US swimming medley teams were phenomenal too.

I'm disappointed that the men have to play with shirts on. Where's the gender equality?!

We have trampoline, ping pong, something called "dressage" and race walking, but we can't have baseball, softball, and golf?

I know golf is coming back, and that's good.

But come on.

Its not just you..haha.

There are two rules that govern racewalking.[1][2] The first dictates that the athlete's back toe cannot leave the ground until the heel of the front foot has touched. Violation of this rule is known as loss of contact. The second rule requires that the supporting leg must straighten from the point of contact with the ground and remain straightened until the body passes directly over it


Kind of reminds me of someone who is rushing to the bathroom .... REALLY has to go but can't run or else an accident will occur

Dressage -- horses.

About a week ago Pierre said he doesn't see much difference between waterpolo and hockey, what a fool...

Do a Yahoo Images or Google search for the Netherlands Sanne Keizer, (part of the duo May-Walsh defeated last night).

You will not be disappointed.

Bolt does it again.

That guy is a freak of nature. He's the best, and he knows he's the best.
