Oh, thanks, I guess I might catch it tomorrow then
1:30 in morning afaik....
Think of them as gymnasts who've got their muscles warmed up for all the spins and somersaults- They don't want to seize up as they hang around for 10mins before doing it again.
I am watching Modern Pentathlon...I never thought I would do that but I am and quite enjoyong the randomness of it!
Currently watching the rhythmic gymnastics final ... a minute and a half physical extremes and then nothing for an hour, it must be so hard to stay focused.
Have been pleasantly surprized to find that I have the physique of an Olympic....
Wow, the divers are struggling to keep their speedos on today
Am I the only one who can't really tell the difference between a sublime dive and ones where the commentators are saying they've never seen such a terrible dive ever?
Given up with the diving, going to watch The Bourne Supremacy instead
The only thing I was able to pick up is that a large splash seems to be a bad thing.
I'm not sure I can really tell what a large (or small) splash is...
The splash is key. If there's too much splashback you get marked down for that, plus it usually means you've under or over-rotated so you get marked down again.
what crazy shit is this??!
run, run, run, shoot, shoot ... wow
Is the daft commentator (? Leon something) still making car-based size analogies??
Glad I switched to The Bourne Supremacy. I love the Bourne films.
What Olympics did I miss?
Russia got gold and silver in rhythmic gymnastics.
GB failed to medal at modern pentathlon (which is all sorts of batshit as a sport).
I think that's all I've seen.
Football shouldn't be here. It's shit.
The modern pentathlon is running, swimming, fencing, shooting and riding. I don't know what's modern about it, as those are exactly the skills you'd need to escape from a moated castle in the 18th Century.
Fucking BBC with their flicking between channels shit.
Who the fuck is this tool commentating on the football?
Most sensible thing you've says since brexit dr sausages.
Haven't really stayed up late for any events and usually caught the highlights as been busy. But as its the 5k final in 20 minutes with mo Farah, I may aswell since I'm awake
....they're using laser guns....reckon they should have them in a suitable environment all trying to shoot each other like laser quest ...( with extra points for making the best blaster noise )
Mo Farrah does it again. 5K gold. He's a legend
What a great headline to wake up to. He always has that extra speed at the end.

Interestingly one of by data mates made the point the UK have not really benefitted from the Russian absences.
22 in Beijing
Modern Pentathlon 1,
Synchronised Swimming 2,
22 in London
Synchronised Swimming 2,
And 17 here. I dont think we took a gold in Rio that Russia took in London, I am open to corrections if anyone can spot one.
(edited as it wont let me post the full medal table)
Shame for the Germans, overtaken by the Russians at the last minute.
