China had the advantage after round 1, and lost. a save by the Australia goalie and a post shot and they lose.
Australia advances.

USA women rolling in basketball. again.

Men's 100m semis and final today! Lots of questions are going to be answered:

Is Bolt back in world record shape?
Is Blake ready to take the top spot in the world?
Is Gay 100% back from injury and missed training?
Is Gatlin going to medal after serving a drug suspension in the past?

Indoor or beach, for the life of me, I don't know why women's volleyball isnt broadcast more often. It doesn't need to be on tv multiple times a week, but how about once or twice a month?

Maybe it is, but I never seem to find it.

I just turned it on and I concur, I guess that's what happens when it is in the 50's there...

The Germans are more than happy to wear bikini tops at night.

IKR, she was steaming. "that's why they play the game". Fortunately, she's young, so maybe Rio, 4 years is along time.

I mean, snap the 37 year old finished 5th.

I'm not feeling the Czech ladies, IMO, the Italian girl Menegatti is much better on the eyes IMO.

Honestly, I'm not finding too many U.S. lookers on the women's side.

Damn, Bolt is fast. It wasn't as silly as his Beijing where he looked like he was blowing dudes away, but yeah he's fast.

His competition was also a lot stiffer this year, that was a strong contender for the best 100m lineup in modern Olympic history.

This CAN-USA game is amazing, but I will never complain about NHL or NFL referees again.

I've been laughing at the female refs at these olympics since day 1, they are hilarious far too often.

Anyone else find cheerleaders at a women's beach volleyball match redundant?

Most of the players are fairly hot and wearing less than the cheerleaders, really, whats the point

Wasn't the US favored to begin with? That doesn't seem miraculous.

Somehow I doubt the announcers back in the USSR would have screamed that if their heavily favored team had beaten us in hockey.
