    The 10 meters they actually showed well in the 50 fly final were pretty close, fun race as always

    Here to hope De Waard can medal. Giele or Steenbergen would be nice too.

    Either talking about his own career or praising other American athletes it feels like.

    And has anyone who might be watching the WA YouTube stream noticed how Dan O'Brien, who is doing co-commentary here, is almost literally all the time talking about his own career?

    This is over. Spain are tired. Sometimes goals like the 1-1 would be ruled a foul, but I'm fine with these type of goals not being ruled a foul. Oh well, the more important tournament is next year, hopefully everybody is fit to play then.

    Barrondo in the penalty box. It seems like he's always DQ since winning OG silver in 2012

    I'm always curious what it takes to get the job at the official Olympics site.

    BBC Coverage is already . If you like to watch lots of ex-athletes expressing banalities about modern athletics the BBC is for you.  If you want to watch athletics, VPN & YT.

    Miedema also tested positive. This spells only more trouble. Losing the two best players in preparation doesn't help, even though Portugal and Switzerland shouldn't be problematic.

    I would like Guatemala to qualify, because it will be their only chance to have a team in collective sport in Paris, the Dominican Republic has a big chance in women's volleyball to have a team

    Finally the WC break for Sharon van Rouwendaal. As per usual,  salvaging what little is left in the marathon tournament. Happy to see her on top form on the Olympic distance again.
     
    She was a bit helped by Cunha and Beck battling it out together, but that's what can happen in a three-way race to the finish.

    Expected, but still unbelievable. Oh well, backwards courts making their country going backwards, what else is new.
     
    Next step is making sexual education illegal, because they obviously don't want people to be somewhat safe, and since the obvious goal is more misery all around, that'd be a logical next step.
     
    It's interesting how they do whatever they can before someone is born, but once a child goes to school, authorities are happy to let them serve as shooting targets.

    The hype was quite low even here in Hungary for this WCh. You can sense that this was a last minute thing and not everyone took it seriously. Having three WChs in one and a half year is a terrible idea from FINA, they should have cancelled the 2022 edition after Japan refused to host it this year. 
     
    2022 should have been the "quiet" year for the Olympic cycle, as usual, the year without WChs, where the FIFA World Cup is the main event and the big Olympic sports only have EChs. Now 2022 is way too crowded with events, while at the same time none of them truly feel special because we just had two Olympic Games in a short amount of time.

    Luckily it is the 21st century in which watching on demand is way easier than before. However, combining work and my wish to watch the “morning” sessions makes it a bit harder.
     
    I also don’t really watch the morning sessions for the swimming these days, which I did when I was back in University. Growing old and being responsible, I bet. It also didn’t help that Dutch TV wasn’t showing them, although I could have used the EBU. Maybe that was the reason I rarely saw the Spanish flag these days..

    Some graphic showing the start orders in terms of gender would really help. But we all know that's not going to happen.

    I still don't understand why the Medley Relay and not the Freestyle Relay is included on the Olympic program..
