    The BBC didn’t imply anything during the 2012 Olympics so they should be quiet here IMO

    I think it’s too early to predict medals in the single sculls but it’ll be interesting to see how this stacks up to the final tally

    Losing Shane Ryan isn’t a big deal. Let’s see what happens the rowers and let’s hope the boxers get a bit of luck

    It won’t matter in the end.  Some countries have lost medals to poor judging. Some because of injured or ill athletes. Even freak weather has impacted results in some events. 
     
    There are literally hundreds of factors at play and COVID is just another one.

    I actually think it's good for the IOC to show that they will accept a good bid from a "secondary" city.
     
    Brisbane is going to host great games, who cares that they aren't a major world city?

    But Daniels was the 4th best in Tryon and he's one of the best in the world now. I still see Ireland as outsiders for a medal but I think the lack of a discard score could help them as we're usually stronger in cross country than most.
     
    You'd have to imagine Germany would win but they were only 5th in Tryon so anything is possible.

    Interesting story in the heats with Ireland's world champion Sanita Puspure going up against Uganda's Kathleen Noble
     
    Her parents left Ireland for missionary work in Uganda a year before she was born. She represented Uganda in swimming at the world short cross championships in 2012 and only took up rowing during her second year at Princeton in the US
     
    She's Uganda's first ever rower at the Olympics
