    Janja on the women’s side and it shouldn’t be particularly close, although speed climbing will throw a wrench into things. Brooke Rabouto from the US been climbing really well as of late but Janja is on another planet.

    The men’s side could get bonkers with how bad Ondra and the other top sport/boulderers are at speed. Americans have no shot in men’s unless something really absurd happens.

    Of course. They spend so much fucking money for the rights and to promote it. They'd lose a crazy amount of money if they didn't put it on their most profitable channel during prime time.

    Pretty excited for the surfing. Gonna be weird watching pros with 0 logos on their board.

    Hopefully the forecast is right and they get good winds. If it's pumping I'll be interested to see how John's knee holds up. Pumping surf and healthy JJF, he'd be the favorite IMO.

    I'd love to see Andino get his first win at the Olympics but he's coming off surgery too.

    Yeah, that's a final and with only twelve teams in the Olympics they basically cant have another slip up. Not sure wtf happened to them. Had a 44 game unbeaten streak

    Watching night coverage and NBC misspelled Foudy and called the US women a 44 game win streak was snapped. (It was 44 unbeaten. Not 44 wins)

    USA women had a really good win in softball over Canada (world #3). they're playing really well and the games are played super quick (Olympic rules have them moving at light speed), it's a pretty good watch.

    Does anyone else look at Olympic event times and compare yourself to them?

    I am almost a whole minute behind these women rowing 2000m at the gym. It is hilarious how slow I am compared to them rowing on actual water in a real boat.
