    Hmm...maybe Barcelona '92?

    I gave up on NBC a long time ago. I watch a few highlights online but that's about it when it comes to the Olympics.

    My oldest daughter plays soccer and she says she can't look up to that SJW squad as role models because she's so sick of the divisive identity politics, just like any other normal American. She also wonders if some of the players don't agree with the woketurd crap but are afraid to say anything.

    The reason the networks have loved the Olympics since TV existed has been the high ratings the Olympic Games had always drawn, especially in the USA. If that part has ended, another problem is the hard time finding a place that can afford to hold them. The Olympic Games may fade away.

    Japan paid some $15 billion to build the venues and implement the totalitarian security measures in front of close to no fans.

    I've been trying to think of the last Summer Games that I actually cared about, and I think you have to go back to Montreal in '76 or Munich in '72 or Mexico City in '68. Anyone who was alive in 1968 can't forget that year's Summer Olympics.

    Right. The last enjoyable Olympics were televised by ABC. I think that was Montreal in '76. They had some Winter Olympics after that but mainly NBC can screw up a trash pile, not that they don't all do that today.

    Yep, the Olympics have usually costed their host countries more than the amount of revenue generated thereby, but this year especially so due to the absence of spectators. I wouldn't be surprised if Japan is given another Summer Olympics down the road to compensate for their giant loss this year.

    In other news, it's been revealed that an illness nicknamed by gymnasts as "the twisties" (I haven't seen an actual scientific name for this illness) was the reason for Biles' withdrawal from all events except for the balance beam, which she modified her routine for. From what I've heard, trying to compete while dizzy and disoriented could've resulted in a career ending injury. I'm sure that the fair and impartial members of this site will be more than understanding of her decision, given their past statements on the matter when applied to white athletes:

    Borland retired in the offseason. What Biles did was equivalent to retiring after the 1st quarter of the Super Bowl. Does your pea brain not understand the difference?

    Simone Biles quitting is also glorified by the media, which is much of the reason her quitting is mocked.

    No spectators is just too weird for me so I've added the Olympics to the growing list of things I've disengaged myself from.

    Besides, the satellite box for my TV needs refreshed or something and I can't bring myself to call and undergo the ordeal by accent required to fix it.

    My interest has never really recovered from 1980 when Jimmy the Rabbit Fighter had to show what a tough guy he really was and destroy the dreams of all those athletes. Then the Soviets counter with their boycott in '84 so that was two hollowed out Olympics in a row. Then the Soviet Union fell so no more East-West rivalry.

    I probably will check out some highlights on Youtube some time.

    Yes, and we should also remember that she was losing (after being hyped up relentlessly by the media pre-Olympics as the "overwhelming favorite") when she quit. That's essentially the equivalent of a QB quitting the Super Bowl at the end of the first quarter when his team is down 21-0.

    If Biles was on track to win the gold medal, and THEN decided to quit for "health" reasons, it would be a lot more believable, and the inevitable praise she would have received from the media would have been a lot more justified. As things stand, however, she's much closer to an example of black fragility than one of "courage."

    Also, there's no scientific term for the "twisties" because it's not a valid scientific concept. It's just a fancy way of saying "panicked" or "cracked under pressure," but spun in a manner to make the athlete in question look better. There's no "magic thinky" moment (which is what Biles seems to have described in interviews) in the middle of a flip, it's just planning beforehand followed by muscle memory during the physical move itself. It would be like a golfer suddenly changing his mind during the second half of his swing. It just doesn't work that way.

    Maybe Fauci can give a press conference about the "twisties" to go along with all his other fake science.

    Lasha Talakhadze of Georgia (the nation not the American state) set three world records to retain his title in the heaviest men’s weightlifting category, while Syria earned its first medal since the country’s civil war began.

    Talakhadze lifted a world-record 223 kilograms (491.63 pounds) in the snatch and 265 kg (584.23 pounds) in the clean and jerk for an eye-popping total of 488 kg (1075.86 pounds). all three figures broke his own world records in the over-109kg category.

    that beat (White Iranian) Ali Davoudi into second place by the vast margin of 47kg.

    Man Asaad (a White man) of Syria took the bronze with a total 424kg. Syria’s last Olympic medal in any sport was a boxing bronze in 2004.

    Just like in the Worlds Strongest Man Contests year after year whites dominate. It's been this way for decades and we might as well say it's just written in
    stone that whites on average are far stronger than other ethnicities.

    Great news! As WL said above Whites continue to dominate as far as the world's strongest men and even I might add the best athletes the world over. We should be proud and never "slink around" on these issues my friends!

    Another amazing thing to consider is that Whites only make up 6% of the population on earth right now. :( Whites Families need to have more kids. Between
    the globalists trying to kill us and whites using birth control too much we are on the verge of extinction in under a century. Please guys make some babies!

    if it makes you feel better, just know that whites are so great right now because of thousands of years of eugenism from our ancestors, and we are only destroying this heritage by encouraging people to have more children

    there is enough disgenism going on in white countries now and have been too much for the past centuries

    In 2017, a black American female soccer player took a "leave of absence" during June, which is Gay Pride month, so she didn't have to wear the jersey with rainbow colors for the USWNT. She did not make a stink about it and didn't even define her reason. Almost a full year later, she explained herself on a podcast, just saying that she doesn't believe in promoting that stuff. She wasn't invited back to the team.

    Jaelene Hinkle is her name! A very brave and commendable woman.

    NFL player Zach Ertz's wife Julie plays for the national team and possibly secretly voted for Trump. But, she knows to keep her mouth shut. I would guess that the majority of the female players passively believe whatever the reigning dogma is but also aren't convicted about it.

    This is definitely the gayest and least compelling Olympics in memory for the Western world, which is by definition not allowed to have any nationalistic pride. I understand that the media controls perception, and yet it seems like this is carrying over to the athletes themselves. Fat blacks are allowed to boogie down on the podium without ANY formal consequences. I'm fine with using "gay" as a general slur for things I don't like, but really this is more a tranny Olympics than a gay one as far as agenda-pushing.

    This story is probably the gayest one yet! My theory is that it didn't get the big rounds from the media because it is just too absurd.

    U.S fencers wear pink masks in apparent stand against teammate accused of sexual misconduct

    Accused of "groping" (not even a good old-fashioned back alley raping) in 2013, acquitted of everything, and these repulsive FAILURES still needed to virtue-signal about "believing all women" en route to a stunning, brave, 9th place finish. Although it may be a small consolation to Hadzic, the Olympic Village he is barred from apparently has beds with cardboard posts to discourage anyone from having sex. So, this presumably alpha chad would not have even been able to put his rapier to good use even if he wasn't banned for a butt-squeeze of a woman who went back to his apartment from a bar eight years ago.

    Good to hear about Hinkle. Do you have any link to the Julie Ertz thing?

    Any little dissent against globohomo is refreshing news these days.

    Brittany Anderson is married to a Spanish Pro Basketball Woman.
    Diana Taurasi is married to an Australian Woman who was a WNBA player. The Aussie has been inseminated twice. Diana is the Husband with her name on the end of the hyphenated.

    Guess she's the one who wears the strap-on?

    What a bunch of freaks. As a father with daughters, it sickens me that trash like these are considered "role models."

    Well I'm still bummed Slovenia lost a close game against France which they could have and should have won. Luka Doncic had his 3rd triple double of the
    Olymics but they lost. They play Saturday against Australia for the Bronze Medal. Hope they can go out and get the win. Doncic is 17-1 with Slovenia when
    he plays. The only loss was 2 days ago in a nail biter. Go get that bronze guys.
