I bet the dream team wouldn't be losing to Lithuania in the 4th quarter.

Croatia having their way with Denmark (current European champions) in the 1st half, they're up 14-9.

Croatia wins 32-21 in one of the most brilliant handball performances I ever witnessed.

Great Britain losing in PKs, is anyone really shocked? I'm not, it's too predictable.

I'm satisfied to see a lot of volleyball is shown today.

Do you actually like volleyball or are you just trying to make me happy?

Hopefully we make the final this time around. Have you been watching France or Iceland? How do they look? Canadian TV isn't showing any handball that I know of.

Stole this from the soccer board. I just love it when England lose, although I only watch about 90 mins of soccer in this tournament.

This is the best Croatian team I ever saw, they're flying right now. Ulrike Wilbek (Danish coach) said that he never saw a Croatian team that played so good, that loss from yesterday was the biggest loss in modern Danish handball history.

It's difficult to say how France and Iceland look right now, the only real test those teams had was when they played eachother and Iceland came out on top. France's defense (their biggest strenght in years past) doesn't look too good right now and Iceland is playing hot-cold right now. If we keep playing as good of a defense as we're playing right now gold is in our sights.

I think you can watch handball using this link:

Nearly had women swimming to start that marathon there, very wet. And now I can't find the tennis anywhere

The last few days have been amazing for GB. But its just typical that in our national sport both the men and the women go out early.

Given this summer I'd suggest changing the national sport.

And I smell a WR in the 100m later. Going to be a good race.

They should adopt losing penalty shootout's as their national sport.

I think the British like rowing more than anything in the Olympics, for some odd reason.

I don't think that's odd at all, when I think about British sports rowing is at the very top.

Anyway, Usain Bolt... he can't be human.
