RE: RIO OLYMPICS



I read that a biologist has warned athletes & tourists not to put their heads under water Rio. This is nothing new, there was a 16 month study done and nothing has changed during that time. Don't the people who produce this event owe the athletes more than that? C'mon! The viral levels in the water were 1.7 million times worse than what is considered dangerous in the United States. Their water is not treated and it has raw human sewage in it. *shudders* There's poop in that water!

Smiley_emoticons_shocked I just heard on the news, that it's costing twelve Billion $$$ (possibly going up to twenty Billion) to put on the Rio olympics? hah
Shit is it worth it? Spend some of that $$$ to clean up the living conditions there!

The Olympics have become a bloated mess thanks to corporate and international greed and political intereference. But as long as people keep watching they'll keep happening.

RE: RIO OLYMPICS



I heard some talk that maybe it's time to find 2 set spots, one for Winter, one for Summer. I completely agree and I think it should be seriously considered. It's ridiculous to hold the biggest games of all in a place where athletes are told not to cover their heads with water, apparently there was some issues with some of the rooms, athletes don't have the things they need, etc. It's time to put the athletes first. Does everything have to revolve around money? I suppose that's a rhetorical question.

RE: RIO OLYMPICS

The U.S. dominated the swimming competitions this weekend. Katie Ledecky broke her own world record and won the gold in the women's 400 meter freestyle.

The men's team added Michael Phelps to the 4x100 relay team on the day of the race; smart move. The team won the gold, the 19th Olympic gold medal for Phelps.

The Williams sister have won the women's doubles Olympic gold every time they've competed together in the past -- 2000, 2008, and 2012. Not in 2016. I was surprised that Serena and Venus were knocked out in round 1 by the Czech team. :(

I really disliked reading about Corey Cogdell's win in that it was prefaced with "wife of". Ugh. Why did they have to do that? She's an Olympic medal winner on her own, she needn't be seen as anyone's wife first.
