I've honestly never seen something take a turn better than Phelps did last night. It was down right amazing.

but the competition pool is only made up of the five each country sent on their official team? in other words you can't just go to the olympics as a specialist?

Yeah it's just 5 of them. They take the best all-around 5 to try and go for the Team Gold medal. But certain ones are better at the beam or the vault or whatnot. That Biles girl or whatever is probably gonna get a bunch of Golds.

You can go as a specialist. Wasn't there a whole deal about there only being one Romanian competing after how dominant they used to be. Also isn't that 41year old lady the only Uzbekistan representative?

Yes, you can go as a specialist. That is specifically why Team USA's Madison Kocian made the team; she is insane on the bars. So far, she is delivering.

In 2012, McKayla Maroney went as a vault specialist and helped the team win gold. She did not compete in any other event. She likely would have won gold if she hadn't busted her ass.

Not sure about this year, but in a previous Olympics he was quoted saying his pre-race song was Lil Wayne - "I'm Me".

well I actually meant specialist in as going to the olympics individually to compete at one event without being a member of the olympic team for a country

Went to grab lunch and Women's soccer was on vs France. Correct me if I'm wrong as I don't keep up with US Women's soccer on the daily, but we look much slower and less tactical than in years past.

Nah, we are as badass as ever. What you're actually seeing in other power countries like France and Germany catching catching up. Europe is finally empowering their female players. They're 30 years late to the party, but it's happening.

Why in the actual fuck are they not airing the women's gymnastics until 5+ hours after it happens? It's traditionally one of the most popular events, and should be done at primetime. Avoiding spoilers is inevitable.

If you're talking about airing it live in primetime, I'm not sure Brazil gives two shits about appeasing the American viewing audience

I feel pretty sure the organizing committee in Brazil has some say in the order of events. Regardless, whomever controls it likely gives zero fucks when the US sports are broadcast

^ The pictures I've seen show fellow athletes doing said cupping, but in general, no. I'd bet $texas that's not the case.
