since he's not winning every race with a new WR time, I don't see any issue with what he's doing.

He worked hard, if not harder than 99% of the other athletes to make it this far.

Yeah. I think the US ladies are a little gassed after the 120+ the other day too. Only reason I can think of they took Rapinoe out.

I'm sure there are plenty of people that would for the money they'd get for being an Olympic champion.

That one in the 27th minute in our box? Yea, that probably should have been called. Other than that, I like the job the referee did in this game.
