Olympics is a little bit ahead but decided to make the thread now since many trials have begun. This is for sports talk only, could care less about and the political junk surrounding the olympics. Anyways should be exciting, with Michael Phelps going for 8 golds or whatever, also can't wait to see team us basketball go for gold. The track and field tryouts were exciting today. Tyson Ga y nearly got eliminated for round because he eased down with 40 meters to go but got passed and barely finished in 4th with the last qualifying spot in his heat. That would have been killer if he was eliminated from the olympics because he took it easy. But being the guy he is, next round which was only the quarters, he ran a 9.77 the fastest U.S. time in history but still .05 behind Usain Bolt's world record. Ga y is one of the most exciting olympians being #1 in the world in both the 100 and 200. Hopefully Xavier Carter qualifies for the 100 but I don't expect it, but I hope he can get bronze in the 200 in the olympics, with hopefully Tyson and Wallace Spearmon going 1-2. Can't wait for the track and field portion of the olympics, USA always gets like half of it's medals from track and field. Want to see Wariner in the 400, and see how Alan Webb fares despite struggling as of late. Also this could be the first time in I don't know when the US could win a long distance gold with Bernard Legat becoming a US citizen and now running for us and not the Kenyans.
No announcement yet.
