Fiji in Rugby Sevens... joy!!! =D

Yes, that was fantastic! Anytime you beat the All Blacks in any kind of rugby, you’ve done something to be proud of. 👍

And seeing all those behemoths of men break down in tears on the pitch after winning showed how much it meant to them - a great Olympic moment!

Woohoo!!! Sunisa Lee just got the gold in women’s gymnastics! 

Yes - that was perfect! Her winning also should shut up the critics (who are thankfully in the minority) who tried to take Simone Biles to task for not competing in the all-around. She didn’t compete, but we still got the gold anyway - so, those critics can shut up now. 

We should also congratulate Rebeca Andrade from Brazil for winning the silver; it was their first gymnastics medal ever! 🇧🇷

Amazing.  I missed it but am watching highlights.  I'm hoping they'll play some with tonight's coverage.   

The whole competition is being rebroadcast in prime time tonight! 😎

How about those Matildas !! 
 

Fantastic 😀😀😀

Yes, congratulations! That was an unexpected result! Good luck against Sweden!

Well, now our Women’s Football team is looking like themselves again. They vowed that they would not lose in the quarterfinals like they did in Rio, and they were as good as their word. I hate PKs as a decider, but at least they prevailed - they did carry the play for the majority of the game, so justice was eventually served. USA/Netherlands is now a proper rivalry - meeting in the last World Cup Final and now here in this Olympics have pretty much cemented that.

Canada will be a very tough opponent, as they always are. Roll on Monday!

It seems the men's eight is the new men's four - helluva boat race! Thought we were going to get our millionth 4th place finish of this Olympics, but they hung on for bronze. Nice to end with a medal after a disappointing set of results in the rowing this year. Then two more medals in the pool (bronze and silver).

GB did brilliantly in the BMX racing with silver in the men's and gold in the women's - a refreshing change as we usually crash out spectacularly in the finals!  Loved their reactions afterwards, with Kye carrying Beth who kept complaining that she couldn't feel her legs. :D

Bryony Page followed up her Rio silver with a bronze in the trampolining, and did better than the Rio gold medallist. We're now guaranteed 2 more boxing medals too. Sadly we lost in the football QFs, but Ellen White is brilliant!
