BOLT!

Holy crap. To me, he's the greatest story of the Olympics. I know Phelps has more medals, etc, but if they had an 80 m dash and a 150 m dash and a backwards and sideways dash and a 4x150m dash, Bolt would win all those too...

Bolt was awesome. Too bad he slowed down though. He could've set a new WR.

At least Rudisha kept on going. What a race from him.

Whoo USA.

Japanese players are absolutely gutted. Tough to watch.

Beautiful Day playing on the PA.

that's crap.

all respect to Bolt, but no need to degrade swimming in order to build up Bolt's greatness.

Well, US Women's Water Polo and Women's Soccer won gold medals within 10 minutes of each other! So happy that our water polo girls finally broke through with a gold!

It isn't degrading swimming at all.

My point is just that the number of medals should not be the determining factor of greatness at the Olympics because there are events, and swimming being the main one, where you are simply capable of winning many, many more medals than in others.

I agree with the overall medal count.

But hopping, skipping, and jumping aren't analogous to fly, back, breast and free.

And the many medals are really only available to Americans and Aussies because of the relays. Most swimmers are thrilled to win one individual event, let alone 2. The only swimmers to have won 4 individual events are Phelps (4 in Athens 5 in Beijing), Mark Spitz, and Kristin Otto (GDR).
