    We guys, I can't say you guys as I include myself, must be having a whale of a time during the Olympics. For some, their preference is women's volleyball, others it's women's beach volleyball, still others synchronised swimming, now some it's rhythmic gymnastics - beauties galore. What next ? For me, I choose based on sporting qualities and excellence as well as beauties, if I don't really enjoy the sport, just ogling at them beauties gets boring after a while (serious;)).

    One innocent:p question I'd like to ask you guys - how come the beach volleyball girls don't wear one-piece swimsuits, only bikinis, not that I mind though ?

    One piece provides some resistance in movement ?

    Nah, I don't think so, for swimming, yes. Female gymnasts also wear one-piece suit. Your answer is as innocent as my question.

    it will be played tonight at 21:30 Brazil time according to the official site.

    which is weird how they put the semi and final in the same day 10 hours apart

    Thanks.

    For the bronze playoff, I tend to favour the veteran, 40-year-old Vladimir Samsonov, an evergreen; reminds me of the legendary Swede Jan Ove Waldner who retired at age 46 and played his last Olympics in Athens2004 at age 39.

    which means 2 more medals guaranteed for China.

    In terms of medal count, China still trailing USA by 1 gold. but the funny thing is, in the US, they favor the total medal count, ie. gold+silver+bronze. which favors the US even back in 2008 when China got more gold than US. currently China is trailing USA 25-32 on that count. i wonder if China if surpass USA in total count will all the media outlet start counting gold instead.
