Nigeria's soccer team landing in Brazil day of game after flight delay
http://www.espn.com/olympics/story/_/id/17217430/nigeria-soccer-team-flight-delayed-debut-rio-olympics

RIO DE JANEIRO -- A flight delay stranded the Nigerian men's soccer team in the United States on the same day the club was set to play its first game in the Olympic Games.

The team boarded a jet out of Atlanta on Thursday morning for the jungle city of Manaus, Brazil, where it is scheduled to play Japan later in the day.

The team's spokesman posted a picture on Twitter of the team boarding the plane with the message, "here we go." He said they were scheduled to arrive in Manaus in time to play the match, but the team faced the uncomfortable situation of making its debut almost immediately after a lengthy flight.

The flight was aboard a chartered Delta jet.

Nigeria won the gold medal in the 1996 Olympics.

Japan 2 vs Nigeria 2 after 11 mins. Japanese forward looked offside, but that is what happens when you playing the offside trap.

Looking at this parade of nations, and listening to the stories. It's amazing that so many of these little dots in the Caribbean sea have produced olympic medalists, and other larger countries are still seeking their first.

In the other thread, we're arguing about how many medals we expect. We could easily be hoping to get our first. Its all about perspective sometimes.

... and this the Caribbean has achieved with inefficiencies. Imagine what our medal count should really look like.

Good point.

During the tribute video to Kipchoge Keino, I was struck by the image of the kids assembled around the swimming pool. Obviously they were using the pool. Implicit message to the world.

Taking in some table tennis. A battle between the US and Iran. Brave effort x the US, but Iran prevailed. Younger American player. Match lasted 36 minutes.

Years and years of prep came down to 36 minutes.

Venus and Serena under some pressure here against the Czech Rep., Venus not pulling her weight but to be fair she's under the weather. Serena trying to remain positive throughout it all, though at times it seems like she want to say Venus wtf!

I say this every 4 years, but swimming is suspect to me.
Way too many world records.

And Djokovic departed in tears in the first round.

Apparently his Argentine opponent was stuck in an elevator on game day and emerged to beat Djokovic, doesn't get better than that.  When the game was over Djokovic embraced him and whatever he said to him as he was congratulated led to him breaking down in tears -- priceless  :beermug:

So far in this Olympics China is giving the US a good challenge on the gold medal count. I am rooting for them simply because the American commentary has been too one sided, some commentators going as far as to publicly say during events that other countries do not stand a chance against the US.
