In off topic because I don't intend to put anything controversial here. Of course one never knows how people will take things.....
1. There's a U.S. diver by the name of Steele Johnson. Really. I swear.
2. Over in the mature topics Olympic thread, I mentioned a crash in the women's cycling road race. The woman shown in the clip was leading at the time, with less than 10 miles to go. It's hidden because its horrifying, although last I heard, she's going to be OK.
Amateur video, so some dead space. Click in about 1:30 if you have a short attention span.
American Mara Abbott was in 2nd (eventually finished 4th) a few seconds behind, and apparently passed while the camera was focused on Annemiek.
3. I'm excited for the start of Men's Rugby 7's in an hour or so. If you're not familiar with the game, its worth a look. 7 men on a side, 7 minute halves, full-size pitch. Non-stop action, insanely fast-paced. Rooting for the U.S. of course, although they're unlikely to medal. Doesn't matter, its still a fun game.
