This Lochte drama has been overshadowing the competition for a few days now, and now it turns out he made it all up! The four US swimmers should be severely punished for their behavior, especially because media around the world had been using that incident to criticize Rio and the organizers.

It's okay, you guys still do so well in the winter olympics. 

It's still pretty okay to get at least one gold medal in the summer olympics xD

On the bright side, as soon as the games are over, nobody will remember who won what. It's not like like the World Cup where everyone remembers the winner for years.

Spreading shit is easy, making up for it when you are wrong is not, so expect a lot less retractions than attacks.

Yeah, if there´s one thing I always hear in these Olympics is
Gold for Britain..... in the x competition.... Gold for Britain..... in the y competition.... Gold for Britain.... in z competition.

I hear that but for the USA. The US dominates the Olympics. I guess Canadian media favour the US over the UK. 

US is like hours-concours in the Olympics.  Lol. There´s no surprise when they get a gold medal.

But for Britain, they are doing much better than anyone expected! It seems they may well finish above China this time.

How unfortunate that the Italian Male Beach Volley team lost in the final match, well I guess it's all right since they lost against Brazil who is known to be extremely strong at both Beach Volley and Volleyball and who also had everyone cheering for them...

 

gota blame the stupid P&G ad even if that was female Beach Volley

Sure it is.  Actually, they went a lot further than expected.  They are n. 16 in world rankings. They lost 02 games in the preliminaries, had to play a hard repechage match against Poland, and then cruised to the final. They surprised everyone. The silver medal is a huge accomplishment for them.



Tom Daley is killing it so far in diving, even if it's just preliminary



Make that 24 golds for GB.....



I'm not really here!
