    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.

    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.

    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? :oops:

    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... :oops:

    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.

    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.
