Today was another great day of Olympics!! Other than a break to watch the Brickyard 400, we watched Olympics all day long. I have to say though, it was a great race!! Jimmy Johnson won his 4th race at Indianapolis. Best of all, Dale Jr took the points lead!! WooHoo It’s the first time since 2004 that he’s been in this position.
It was actually a day of disappointment in London too. Ryan Lochte lost the lead in the 4x 100m. Phelps had us in good position and Lochte had the final leg, but finished in 2nd. We ended up with a silver medal out of it, but we really shouldn’t have lost that gold. I say Lochte and Phelps are now tied up for the performances!!
In other sad news, Jordyn Wieber won’t be doing the all-around for Team USA. She was scored incredibly unfair. Trust me, that’s not just my opinion. With the new format, only the top 2 scoring members of each country move on to the all-around. For us, it’ll be Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas. Of course, Jordyn still gets to perform her individual routine, but it’s a shame that the reigning World Champion won’t go to the all-around.
Rhodes took the gold medal in clay shooting. She’s totally awesome!! Also, Dana Vollmer not only got the gold, but set the new world record for the 100m butterfly. She was flawless in the pool!! In the ladies synchronized 3m springboard diving, we got a silver and they were fascinating to watch.
The other big event that we watched today was men’s water polo. We beat Montenegro. It wasn’t a medal round, but it was a great game and sends us on!!
Today’s medal count is…..
How’s your favorite event or country doing??
