No kidding. I thought he was going to be overtaken and then he found more in the tank.

And what about that high jump final! The last time anybody who jumped less than 2m got a medal of any colour was bronze in 2000. This year? A 37 year old woman who came out of retirement beat a whole pack of youngsters - and only jumped 1.97 to do it!

The 5000 meter silver medalist Paul Chelimo was DQ'D. If that's not bad enough, he found out when the NBC reporter told him on live television. That's just cruel.

Wait! He's been reinstated! I'm so happy for him!

PS. Both USA relays didn't DQ and won comfortably.

US men's basketball totally dominating Serbia, such a big country going against a small, young one, is to be expected, I guess. Still impressed that European bb is competitive, great that it is played all over the world!

Abe with the Mario hat was very amusing, but he's still a buffoon. Don't get too sucked in.

Olympics partially ruined by Channel 7 and their lame and almost insulting approach to parochialism and cross-promotion. Bolt, Phelps, Ledecky, Farah and Biles only got a smidgeon of screen time compared with Zumbo.

I really enjoyed Foxtel's coverage across no less than 7 channels four years ago.

Remarkably the other day, Channel 7's main channel had the women's pole vault final on some sort of half hour delay, while on 7Two, the pole vault final was genuinely live. Just bizarre.

Track events and artistic gymnastics were my favourite competitions of these games.

Sad that it's over.
