A big BOO to NBC for holding the Women's Beach Vollyball final for prime time. Is there anywhere I can see it live?

^ bloody networks

it's the wee smalls of the morning here which is likely why they keep cutting back to it!

I haven't checked the links here but you can usually find what you're looking for good luck! is NBC not streaming live? I know a few of the US folk around these boards have been streaming stuff live from that site?

Usain Bolt just won his 200 metre semi-final in 20.18 seconds. It looked like he was jogging half the time. Unreal.

Yep, Martina did well (and he was jogging too at the end).
And Blake barely remained 1st with all his jogging. 0.03 slower and he would've been third (though still faster than Bolt and Martina).

So happy for Allyson Felix! She ran a beautiful race. Oh and US Track did well tonight. 3 Gold Medals, 2 Silver and 2 Bronze and our top 2 decathletes are doing very well as well.

That was funny.

It's weird to see such large gaps of quality at the top level.

Everyone in my family (I am together with extended family for the two weeks of the Olympics) hates watching Bolt and they all think he's an egotistical pig but if he's the real deal - not doping and defending his titles - I don't see why he has to act modest and humble all the time in order to be respected as an athlete.

I love watching Bolt in the same way I loved watching coverage of the Mars rover landing. Sometimes the word 'awe' is all that fits.

He just has an exuberant personality. There's video floating around of him stopping an interview because there was a medal ceremony in progress and a national anthem was playing. That's class.
