    Katie Ladecky dominates the Free 1500. Unbelievable performance. She just kicks everybody's asses.

    Men's beach volleyball...

    So Gibb 45 year old (oldest ever) loses his partner (in a 2 man volleyball sense) to Covid illness, and picks up the next in line, Bourne who flies in from Hawaii.
    They get a week to figure it out.
    If you have never played beach, let alone 2 person volleyball this is nearly impossible.
    Communication is terse and difficult, trust that your partner will react to your moves is key.
    If you are lucky, you can build a winning partnership in a season, if not, years.

    The Americans beat the Swiss, with an awesome hitter (2 person beach teams tend to consist of one great all around and setter, and one blocker/hitter player.)

    Great match.

    I played various stripes of volleyball for 20 years, at a competitive amateur level. I sucked at beach.

    I am not at all interested. I played Rugby and Boxed and hard running. Always interested in sports. But since the inout of men calling themselves females and winning (easily of course) female events and this taking the knee bollox, I no longer watch or read about sports.
    Boxing now has the worst boxers, based on ability and integrity, I have ever known, in the Heavyweight division. During press conferences the boxers literally say "fuck you I am going to kill you and your mother" !!! They fight once a year at most. Ali fought 5 times a year and fought the best no matter the risk of losing.
    Footballers still dive and cheat and cry and bleat yet are paid multi thousands of pounds per day.!!!
    When Tyson Fury batters Joshua and Wilder and these two disappear from the rankings I will return to boxing. Back in the pre 1990's days Joshua and Wilder would never get into the top 50 ratings.

    Just in case anyone wonders, or doubts, I am not paid, nor a shill.

    I just like sports and honest, hard fought competition. And I want to highlight athletes that respect and honour America.

    Yes.

    That is a real let down.

    I thought she had more....willpower.

    History is full of underdogs (or, even, expected victors...), facing incredible challenges, then, coming through.

    These days, an athlete gets his or her feelings hurt, and, they have to go home.

    But, sadly, this is indicative of Americans, in general.

    I haven't watched a minute of the Tokyo Olympics.

    Too "woke."

    Apparently, I'm not alone.

    Tokyo Olympics: NBC's coverage continues to tank, opening weekend primetime viewership down significantly | Fox News
    Marxists, Socialists, Democrats, and the legacy media.

    They lie all the time. They lie about everything.

    They know they are lying. We know they are lying. They know we know they are lying.

    They lie anyway. It's what they do.

I think we’re a little bit too stressed out. We should be out here having fun, and sometimes that’s not the case.
    “Today has been really stressful, we had a workout this morning; it went OK but during that five-and-a-half hour wait I was shaking – I could barely nap. I had never felt like that going into a competition before. I tried to go out here and have fun; the warmup in the back went a little bit better but once I came out here I was like, ‘no, mentals [sic] not here so I just need to let the girls do it and focus on myself.’”
    Biles is still eligible to compete in other competitions.
