There IS a third option also, not only what he said or otherwise.

I might have missed it, but did he say he would break the 100 m record the before the race?

Called it on last page he wouldn't break any records.

In fact, he came closer to breaking the 100 m record than he did the 200 m. His time in the 100 m from a few days ago translates to a time of around 19.65 in the 200 m.

The U.S. Olympic Committee and the 3 swimmers have all come out backing the gas station story. 2 of the 3 got back their passports and left Rio Thursday night. The USOC executive apologized to Brazil.

Quote :
"“On behalf of the United States Olympic Committee, we apologize to our hosts in Rio and the people of Brazil for this distracting ordeal in the midst of what should rightly be a celebration of excellence,” USOC Chief Executive Scott Blackmun said in a statement. “We will further review the matter, and any potential consequences for the athletes, when we return to the United States.”"

I can't get over how hot the sprinters are (mostly 100M and 200M) for each country. Even my wife has agreed. Each of the 100M hurdlers would get it. They seem to get uglier as the distances get longer. There were some hideous beasts in the 800M...the one exception being the cute American that barely qualified.

I'd probably fuck about 90% of the sprinters. Females...no homo.

Jordan Burroughs, probably the best wrestler on the planet and defending gold medalist, lost today. Pretty huge upset and a bummer for the US.

I thought he was as close to a sure thing to repeat as yo could get.

He was heavily favored but the guy he wrestled was #2 in the world. No excuses, he shoulda won, but it was poor luck that he drew him in he quarters instead of the finals. Still has a shot at the bronze in the repechage

ehhh they just lose all their flesh and curves as they become more endurance, although some of them can still be fairly cute like emma coburn...plus a trainer at my gym is kind of sexy with that endurance body type (triathlete)

Yeah, I know, still sucks though, I think that's only his second career loss in freestyle. He's been completely dominant leading up the olympics. He ran through the world championship this year.

why wouldn't you root against the us in every sport? political reasons aside, we are the largest, wealthy nation and perpetual favorites. Good fans root for underdogs.

The Caribbean Islands, and Jamaica in particular, have always had great sprinters. It use to be that they would get poached by other countries such as the US or UK for the Olympics. Bolt and Price are the first in a while to represent their country in the Olympics, and their success has created a brand that has lead to other people following their example.

yeah I'm curious, going to try to google that or at least figure it out some in my head

also like to see men's vs women's metals bc I have a feeling we get a huge boost from our women as I think of our women's sports as being farther ahead for sure

Japanese came 2nd in 4x100 m men's, and Chinese came 4th.

Didn't know there were black Japanese and Chinese

Jamaicans first, Canadians third after Americans who crossed third were disqualified.

For fucks sake.

The only time I wanna hear NBC report on this stupid Rio gas station thing again is if Leslie Jones is doing said reporting.

Also this isn't news, but Ryan Lochte is a fucking idiot, who can't quit talking about a gun without admitting he vandalized the fucking place.

I haven't kept up with everything about the locte situation but if he wasn't such a retard he could have come off looking much better there.

Yeah Matt Lauer, it was a "negotiation" just like when someone says "Give me your wallet or I'll blow your brains out" is a negotiation.

No doubt he was at fault for vandalism though.

Well the first story was it was the police with a gun to his forehead, who then cocked said gun against his forehead and demanded money, without any mention of their vandalism. Then the video came out, and now it was actually the owner/station worker, and there was no gun against his forehead, definitely not cocked against his forehead, rather it was pointed in his "general direction," and they were asking for money (to pay for the vandalism which Lochte still can't admit he did).

I'm just going by what Lochte says and what Lauer seems to accept as general fact. If the video shows something different I assume Lauer wouldn't be shy on calling him out about it given the tone of the rest of the interview (which was basically "you lied to me so now you'll be lucky if your career isn't over)

Even if they do legitimately owe you money, holding someone at gunpoint and demanding money is hardly what I would call "negotiation"

the video does show what looks like a guy holding a gun and a bunch of people with their hands up getting robbed, but it doesn't show any vandalism. Apparently Rio decided this was the only robbery this year that needed solving, and after confiscating passports and extorting money out of one of the other athletes the case has been solved!

The whole incident looks like a shakedown, with the cab driver being in on it. What cab driver picks up patrons and then stops to fill up with gas on the way?

^ It did show a door being kicked down. I don't doubt there was vandalism, but I also suspect there was some extortion afterwards. Basically both sides of the story are at fault but our media is determined to make every story black and white.

Holy fuck this is willful ignorance at its best. Dude already admitted he was drunk and lied about what happened. You obviously didn't watch the Lauer video. You also obviously didn't watch all the surveillance video which showed them breaking shit and peeing where they shouldn't.
