    Tokyo Olympics, report on what you are interested in...

    I like a lot of sports, but some of them are a little off the beaten path.

    I just feel the need to post about performances that I enjoyed, or hated...

    I would appreciate others joining in.

    First, the Russian 6 man indoor volleyball team beat the Americans in 4 sets (best of 5), in a great match yesterday(?) (it's hard to tell with the 12-13 hour time shift). I'm getting old. I don't know most of the names on the team anymore.

    This next one is some serious shit.

    In Taekwondo, USA Anastasija Zolotic wins the first ever womens Gold.

    Most of these matches are totally technical, but AZ kicks the Russian in the face, knocks her down... Just domination.

    Should I include links?

    Next is Beach Volleyball Dalhausser/Lucena for team USA over a Brazilian team. (The Brazilian teams are top shelf)

    Dalhausser was playing when I was still playing, don't know how old he is.

    Great match.

    In the Skeet shooting competition, Vincent Hancock, and Amber English are tearing it up.

    I watched Amber's win in the Women's Skeet comp. She was against a strong champion. Her back story is great, she missed her chance in 2016.

    "English, a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, was ranked 24th in June despite a third-place finish in the 2018 World Championships."

    USA Archery has pretty much fallen on their heads.

    Last but not least for those of you who love swimming, or have a short attention span...

    Lydia Jacoby pulled off an upset gold medal in the 100 meter breast stroke.
    She even surprised herself!

    I have to laugh about our oh so 'woke' men's basketball team ----they spent the last two years focusing on BLM and social activism, but apparently not working as hard on their basketball skills...

    Team USA falls to France at Tokyo Games for first Olympic men's basketball loss since 2004

    Team USA falls to France at Tokyo Games for first Olympic men's basketball loss since 2004

    SAITAMA, Japan -- Team USA's invincibility in men's basketball is long gone, and the journey to a fourth consecutive gold medal is already fraught with adversity.
    France gut-punched the Americans with a brilliant finish for an 83-76 victory to open the Tokyo Olympics on Sunday. It snapped a 25-game Olympic winning streak dating back to 2004 for Team USA.

    BTW: See the Jacoby medal ceremony where both she and the Bronze American winner, and Lydia's family sing the national anthem!
