    Must admit, I thought their apology sounded a bit 'managerial' and that they could have used a bit more direct language. Also, if they wanted to show they were really taking it seriously, rather than managing the story, they should have suspended him pending a full investigation (Lochte + the other one who lied - from what I've read the other 2 didn't give misleading statements to police, though I'm not sure which one of the swimmers actually vandalised the petrol station). As well as the shitstorm they've caused for the hosts, along with what seems to be criminal behaviour, they've also presumably broken pretty much every team rule there could be.

    IN typical American fashion, I hear they have thrown some cash at the issue which will help everyone forget all about it.

    BTW, did anyone see the gymnasts showing of the other night; it was one of the best bits of the olympics. Purely for entertainment, some of the gymnasts got up and simply did a few moves to show of their talents. No points involved, no stressing over medals Etc. and it showed.
    It finished with a young looking 48 year old guy from China who is now Swiss....this little, hunched guy, greay hair, suit, collar and tie, struggled to get into the auditorium. He then went an looked at a beam with rings on it (?). Next thing you know he is doing all these amazing moves. Half way through, he stands on the beam, has a think and a scratch just like an old chap should. Then the wig comes of, the suit follows and he finishes up with a few more moves. At 48, brilliant!

    Have ended up in an "anyone but China" type of supporting.

    It seems quite difficult to score a penalty in hockey...

    Much as I slag him off for his celebrity antics, shaving his legs and marrying a creep, Tom Daley has just qualified for the 10m diving finals in FIRST place :thumbs:

    The taikwondo fighter who lost in the last second of the final was utterly distraught. The poor man, he was absolutely beside himself.
