  • Official Olympics Thread

    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.

    Holy Cow, Tyson Ga y just ran a 9.68 hundred in the finals of the olympic qualifiers. Such a shame it was slightly above the allowed win aid to be a world record, but it is still the fastest registered time by a human being and there have been much stronger wind aides in the past. Damn with him Usain Bolt, and Asafa Powell in the Olympics one of them will run under 9.7 and all will probably run under 9.8, just fyi Trindon Holliday was last place in one of the semifinal heats, and Xavier Carter was last place in the finals heat.

          Crazy thing is 2nd place finisher also broke the world record by .14 seconds. Phelps broke it by nearly a second. That's crazy in an olympics qualifier two guys break the world record. Phelps should be good for at least 5 golds.

            Walter Dix is a monster especially considering his age, but right now couldn't hold Tysons Jock.

                          Except for basketball lately... There's always hope there though. Argentina, Spain, and Serbia look to be the top competition. Have to be wary of Greece too, 6th Ranked team in the world, beat the US team in the quarterfinals at the last FIBA World Championships..

                              I love the Olympics too. Australia usually has a good team. Swimming is usually great fun, but with Thorpie quitting the mens team is rubbish. The women should dominate like usual, but other than Grant Hackett and Eamon Sullivan we will be lucky to get a medal. Other than swimming we'll probably win some quality medals in a ton of random crap like Archery and Equestrian. Hopefully the soccer team can handle themselves on the world stage too. We have a strong group of Under 23's and if the likes of Mark Schwarzer come and play we could push for a semi final spot.
