Forum, do you think the TF in this Olimpics is fully supported by Rio. I see a lot of empty seats. I have witnessed past Olimpics with bigger stadiums and bigger crowds. Am I wrong on this?

Beach volleyball is the biggest lick.

On ah regular, clubs in the league doh normally fill stadia. But, ppl did their part. They came out to see Bolt.

If I lived there, I would be sampling various events rather than killing one.

Buy-in to this event seems to have come late. What would have been ideal is had an entity subsidized the attehdance of a few favela youths.

Looks like the gold medallist judoka's family had to settle for a seat on a couch in front de TV.

Also, not a lot of household names among their T&F contingent.

Multi-factorial?

Not seeing any highlights on him. Hopefully this does not mean he is doing poorly

The 200 semi is momentarily. I see Bolt and them getting ready.

Is St. Fort still injured? That was a poor anchor in the 4x100m, we went from tied for first to maybe third.

Yes. Two heats, top 3 and 2 fastest losers. But placement in the heats determine the lane draw in the finals.

Wow. Men just got in third. But Japan clearly ahead of Jamaica (w/o Bolt) in 37.68 (new Asian record)

Not surprised by Japan, but my commentators seem very much so. Ignored them in the pre-race commentary.
