    5.45 for Bassa Mawem  
     
    I can hardly think of any climber I like watching more than Bassa Mawem on a good speed run.

    Man, my Twitter feed is full of angry, clueless Indonesians complaining why our speed specialists don't qualify and blame the Japanese conspiracy to prevent Indonesian gold

    The unseeded pair wins.
     
    Too bad the Chinese pair interrupted their celebration with their cringe-worthy challenge.

    I think the rule for Indonesian gold is simple: Expect the unexpected player to win gold

    First ever medal for Indonesia in women’s doubles at the Olympics. Guaranteed at least silver now!   
     
    It means Indonesia have won medals across all 5 badminton events since badminton was introduced in the Olympics in 1992. Women’s doubles is also the only badminton event they haven’t won Olympic gold in. Good luck Indonesia!!

    After Day 7 Rio: 118/306 events, 62 NOCs with medals
    After Day 7 Tokyo: 133/339 events, 70 NOCs with medals
     
     
    On the seventh day in Rio, the  US team ran away from the rest (20-13-17 in Rio). Now they chase  China (13-10-14 in Rio) which had their best day yet.  Japan (7-3-14 in Rio) continues to bring joy to their fans. With more to come, they have already surpassed the 1964 Olympics in terms of gold medals won (16). With  Russians also keeping the pace (5-9-8 in Rio), we should continue to see an exciting battle for the first four places until the end.
    Success also for the  Australians (5-6-7 in Rio), already more Olympic victories than in Rio.
     
    Big improvements so far by the  Czechs (1-0-1 in Rio). Absolutely on their way making it the most successful summer games in history.
     
     Uganda back after not medalling last time and also tying 1968 and 1972 for most medals one in one summer games.
     
    It's not looking good yet for the  Spaniards (3-0-2 in Rio). Some of their stronger events are yet to come but after a good performance at the recent judo world championships had them dreaming of converting that into medals. They leave judo in Tokyo without.
     
    The highest-placing team at that point still without medal here (aside from the absent  North Koreans) is  Sweden (1-2-1 in Rio).

    @heywooduas I promised:
     
    The weightlifting coach actually called me via WhatsApp and I was unprepared
     
    So yeah they intentionally put in Rahmat in B Group. The hamstring injury when he was warming up for C&J made them changed the lift.. He was originally prepared for 185 - 190 - 193 in C&J.
     
    He also shared how the motivation part were also the aspect they take seriously. Rahmat shares the room with his father (the balding guy wearing glasses in black - if you still remember). His father was going to Athens 2004 but withdrew just before the Games due to an injury, and his father shouted to him "Remember son this is the Olympic, I haven't tasted it" at the 3rd C&J lift.
     
    On the other hand, Windy shared a room with Sri Indriyani (Sydney 2000 bronze), and Sri was asked to share how she persevered despite having injury during her lifts in Sydney.

    They show top 3 from B group on the big screen in the stadium. you don't have to check anywhere else for that. and on that screen they show the current rank of everybody. I mean if you want to beat the 3rd guy (to win the bronze) you can find who is 3rd on that big scoreboard. so it's really hard to miss Group B results.
     
    but still it looked like they didn't know. it just doesn't make sense to lift 1kg below the bronze medal result and be happy about it!

    Well his coach projected him to be 5th-8th, I’ll try asking the reason behind sudden increase to 190 kg lift.

    I remember it was done by Om Yun-chol in 2012 where he won gold. He was already the favourite to medal/win back then so I imagine maybe it was done as an intimidation tactic?
