Griff88 reacted to OlympicIRL in Badminton at the Summer Olympic Games 2020
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!!
Griff88 reacted to Quasit in Summer Olympic Games 2020 Medal Count
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).
4th place counter*
(1) and the Refugee Olympic Team
*5th places in events that award two bronze medals
Griff88 got a reaction from heywoodu in Weightlifting at the Summer Olympic Games 2020
@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!
