Good day for Canadian swimming. A bronze, a finalist and Andrew Ford who looks like he won't make the final, but wasn't expected to make the semi's and here he is.

Work has seriously been getting in the way of watching the Olympics today.

Can't people be more considerate and schedule meetings around the medal events?

Anyone else watching Water Polo on NBC? It's USA vs. Romania.

Water polo seems like such a difficult sport, to be honest.


Of all the sports I played, it is up there with Rugby as the most difficult.
Lots of dirty plays (scratching, kicking, elbows), and just tiring in general.

why the facepalm?


Firstly. FTA - "Why does a nation have to put up $500 in order to correct a clear mistake made by judges?"

Secondly. Why publicly exchange cash at a high profile sporting event?

Well, looks like CBC has won the rights to air the 2014 and 2016 games over Bell Media/Rogers.

How many channels would CBC use for the 2014/2016 games? I only remember them using one during Beijing.

Holy smokes, a guy just lifted 204 kg!

WORLD RECORD!


Nearly 450lbs. Amazing overall strength. Especially that leg strength. He was in as deep of a squat as you could get and lifted it like it was nothing. These guys make most professional athletes look like chumps when it comes to strength. It's crazy. Or all sixes and sevens as the Brits call it.
