Alex, what I didn't like is not Nole on court 1, I dislike the fact his doubles match with Troicki, eight seeds, aganist a tricky swedish duo, Brunstrom/Linstedt is not on an tv show court, they decided to showed on tv instead on C14, 7 seeds Bhupathi/Bopanna vs Bury/Mirnyi.
Federer/Wawrinka and the Sisters doubles matches will be on tv, not the one of Nole/Troicki.
fencing is Italia and then the others. in archery seems China has taken the traditional gold sport of South Korea.
the medal table will be interesting, prior to Beijing 2008 USA had been the nº1 til Altanta'96. In Barcelona'92, the unified team (soviets) were still able to take the most medals.
Seems Great Britain expects 90 medals????????? confirmation on that, It is great to watch a soccer team called Great Britain.
China got a lot of medals in Beijing in some events where the judje decided, we are in a very different scenario here. and in some traditional events like badminton or tennis table for China the IOC has eliminated some events and the chances of an all chinese podium, only 2 chinese in those events.
I also prefered Lochte than Phelps, don't want to see the record of Latynina borken.
the chinese men in artistic gymnastic had a big nightmare in qualification.
so bad you need to sell a horrible design of shirts and other clothes in order to avoid the classical who can win a medal by the national media, this is the case of Spain, those are going to be a difficult games for Spain, and they already have the escuse for the poor performance, the economic crisis.
hero of the day: what a guy! the russian golden judoka, Arsen Galstyan impressive!
