When Track & Field gets under way I'll start watching for sure.
Ya that was crushing.. Caught her in the last 100 meters in full sight of the finish line.. But she gave it her all that's all you can ask... But man that's gotta suck..That crash in the women's road race looked ugly - she was fortunate it wasn't worse. Really felt almost sick for the American woman who was following her. She is now out in front by like 30-40 seconds but she has to work on her own. She leads almost the entire last 10 miles or so, but a group of 3 riders catches her in the last 400 meters or so and she goes from gold medal to no medal just like that. Heartbreaker.
RIO DE JANEIRO—Immediately recognizing the booming, thunderous voice he hadn’t heard since he was 5 years old as he warmed up ahead of his first heat in the 200-meter individual medley, U.S. Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps reportedly spotted his long-estranged father, Poseidon, God of the Sea, cheering for him Thursday in the stands of the Olympic Aquatics Stadium. “All right, Michael, go get ’em, son!” said Poseidon, who reportedly caused the arena’s windows to rattle and walls to shake as he bellowed and clapped with approval while Phelps stretched next to the pool. “Everybody, that’s my son out there! I love you, Mikey!” Sources confirmed Phelps appeared crestfallen after turning to acknowledge his father before realizing that the King of the Deep had instigated a fight with the parents of Italian swimmer Federico Turrini and impaled the couple on his trident.
