I know who that was and I remember watching that race. :-)

The handball call was even worse.

How exactly can you not touch the ball if someone kicks it your hands? So fucking stupid.

Agree, however apprently she was warned at halftime to stop doing it because she had been doing it throughout the game, and in her mind it wasn't an "official" warning, so she didn't heed the warning, and continued to break the rule...so while its a call you never expect to see, its on her as she was warned by officials prior.

Yeah, that call to me wasn't nearly as bad as the handball. Especially since the US had gotten away with one earlier in the match.

Oh and my current personal best on the Google hurdle race is 14.5.

Be that as it may, why award a free kick just outside the box? Why not hand out a yellow card instead?

Important to remember the calls had nothing to do with the girls on the American team though, so best of luck to them.

Fuck that ref though

What a game in the women's volleyball quarterfinals between Brazil (current Olympic champion) and Russia (current world champion). If that doesn't make you enjoy volley, then the sport is definitely not for you.

okay, so it may just be that complete and utter sleep deprivation has rendered me more senseless than usual but (big fat cycling spoiler)

 
watching Anna Meares win her sprint final live was absolutely f*cking brilliant ~ I am still in tears and just so so happy for her

Canada's Alexandre Despatie finishes 7th in the 3 metre springboard in his final Olympic diving competition. He came back two months after sustaining a concussion following an accident in which he hit his head off the board during a practice dive.

Very proud of you, Alex.
