that is one dangerous sport, hope she is ok

'I let everyone down, especially my brother': Saya's gut-wrenching reaction to BMX crash

I agree, she stuffed up. No excuses.

Great to see Cate Campbell swim up to her best current form to take bronze. Great result to Australia.

LA colliseum upgrade will only benefit college football and occasional big soccer matches, while London stadium now used by West Ham

What's in the Games: Are the Olympics worth it?

yes, I hope so too. At least with Aussie bids, and UK and US, is that the main stadium expenditure gets a lot use later through the football and cricket codes.
In that sense, the expenditure transcends other sports, as you noted about Gabba.

What's in the Games: Are the Olympics worth it?

Yes, I tend to switch off with commentary, and just look at action switching around seven, seven mate and seven app.
The non sportspeople that expect someone coming 6th or 7th to come home for a top 3 finish in last swimming lap make me laugh though.
But Thorpe is good.

Who doesn't wish the incredible Ian Thorpe was an expert commentator for their favourite sport?

Should be a good first day. womens 100m heats and 10,000m final. A few Aussies in early rounds.

Good piece.
Is it worth it hosting an OG?
IMO, it is a bit like playing a lot for a house. If someone is prepared to pay that much, so be it.
If Brisbane was not prepared to pay, it should not have bid.
And you cant really compare the bids of LA and Brisbane with the joke of Russian and Chinese bids who do what they like with financial resources.

can yattuzzi come back from last week’s tips to take the Roar crown?

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 20

it is amazing how they back up from race after race. maybe 4x200m took something about him, maybe not.
Much harder to recover quickly in track.

fantastic win

WATCH: More gold for Australia as Stubblety-Cook claims breaststroke glory

great races today. Chalmers did fantastic in a great race. Hopefully he will go on to Paris to again be a 100m freestyle threat.

yes, hopefully Titmus can test her at 800m,

'Bloody exhausted,' but Arnie brings down Ledecky again for 200m gold

Hopefully we can watch history with Australia’s first Olympic and global championship medal.

The Boomers' Olympics window is small but open

Fantastic feat by Titmus to win two individual freestyle gold medals

'Bloody exhausted,' but Arnie brings down Ledecky again for 200m gold

yes, two golds and two bronzes 👍

HISTORY: Two rowing golds for Australia in super morning

yes, Hogan was a great runner 10.62 in 1956 on cinders track.
I heard he was very quick over 60m. great starter.

How we should be judging Australia's Olympic sprinters

great win for bronze by Owen Wright

I don’t like our chances, but we shall see.

Me too, the athletics is the main event.
