    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?

    Playing off the name?

    Being 1/2 Serbian, I would guess that Zolotic(h) is from that region.
    Just checked, yep, like me, they are from Yugoslavia...

    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."
