I saw that this morning and it was a great story. What's sad is they both appealed and Nijel Amos was successful and put through while Jewett was not. Seems to me if anyone deserved it he did. :(

Watched the final yesterday and there's a local connection... :cool:


Ryan Crouser Dedicates Shot Put Gold Medal to His Late Grandfather


Ryan's Dad, Brian, was all-everything at the U of O and held many records in the shot/discus/javelin sports. He was also a World Record holder and an Olympian and was a neighbor of my former Employers and they used to talk over the fence. Strong Family Name around these parts.. :cool:

I'm just so glad they're over. Now maybe there will be something to watch on TV. :D

and here I am sad that they are over as I had gotten used to watching them in the AM whilst working. :)

Athletic achievement to me is just awesome. I think gymnastics is dumb but holy cow do I respect the athletes. I've always thought we should have one normal, everyday person in all events just to show how advanced these people are.

That's funny because it's the only one I actually like. I was against them holding them with Covid-19 going on but that's another story for another forum. But I really don't like when the sports are happening overnight and then we only get highlights and they keep switching back and forth. I like it better when you get to watch the event you like in real-time. :)

agreed. And again, while I do think gymnastics is dumb, but dang if they are not top notch athletes.
