  2. It's difficult to find the words to describe it but it's history for my country! Beautiful scenes, I like the Olympic spirit that I've seen today.

  3. Beautiful scenes in the men's high jump final! There was no separating the ever-amazing Barshim and his Italian rival Tamberi, so they were going to have a jump-off, but Barshim asked if they could just share the gold instead. The official confirmed it was possible, and Barshim indicated he was happy to do so - Tamberi leapt into his arms joyfully and there wasn't a dry eye in the stadium! ....and now Tamberi is celebrating again as his teammate wins the men's 100m!

  4. August is upon us brothers and sisters. It's that special time of year again - B.P.A.M* is finally here. Hopefully we can all act civilized this time and there won't be a repeat of previous year's unpleasantness. *(Brad Pitt Awareness Month).

  5. Also, well done Alexander Zverev on winning gold for Germany in the men's singles tennis. He's the first German man to win gold in tennis - Steffi Graf won the women's singles in the 1988 Olympics. When Andy Murray won gold at the 2012 Olympics, that seemed to give him the confidence to go on and start winning Grand Slam titles, so maybe the same will happen for Zverev?

  7. ...and he proved it again today! 😄 Team USA won the Gold Medal in the Men's 4 x 100m medley relay, giving Caeleb Dressel his 5th Gold Medal of these Olympics! He joins Mark Spitz, Eric Heiden, Matt Biondi, and Michael Phelps (who did it in three different Olympic games) in the group of American athletes who have won at least 5 Gold Medals in a single Olympics! A couple of other interesting details about this race in particular: ever since this event has come into existence in the Olympics, we have never lost it in an Olympics in which we competed (we didn't win it in 1980 only because the USA boycotted the Moscow Olympics), AND we won it today despite not being the pre-race favorite, even with our history in the event. A very special accomplishment! And he helped the team win after having won the Gold in the 50m Freestyle just an hour before! The man is a beast... Robert Finke won the 1500m Freestyle as well just before the relay, and the Women's team won the silver in the 4 x 100m medley relay; Australia won gold by a little over a tenth of a second - it was a nail-biter to the finish.

  8. Unfortunately, I have to agree - it’s exactly what they did with the JT 30th set. However, with the recent ATYCLB set, they didn’t really bother - there was nothing truly and completely new with respect to music on that one… And that’s why I put stuff that could be included on a possible new set on the last page. There is stuff (audio and video) that they could include that might entice those who already have the 20th anniversary to think about getting the 30th, or attract those who didn’t get the original deluxe sets 10 years ago. I just hope they put a lot more thought and effort into what they do include (if such a set is coming, that is) - and don’t make the non-vinyl version an afterthought like with the last two sets. The lack of new video was especially disappointing for the last two. Well, let’s see what’s coming - the news should be coming soonish.

  9. Emma Wilson (from a town near me!) got bronze in the windsurfing. Karriss won bronze in the boxing, Lauren Price has also secured a medal and Pat McCormack is guaranteed at least silver as his semifinal opponent has withdrawn.

  11. Can I just say, one of my favourite things about this weird Covid Olympics has been team members putting the medals around each other's necks on the podium. Such a lovely idea!
