    Whoever the US athlete was that shouted BABA BOOEY at the cameras just a few minutes ago. That guy rocks.

    It looked like Ryan Lochte, but I'm sure Deadspin will have his name in 20 minutes.

    Belize. The entire country. They only sent three athletes to the games.
    -- Kaina Martinez, women's 100 meters
    -- Kenneth Medwood, men's 400 meter hurdles
    -- Addermys Sanchez, 66 kg Judo

    Any one of them, even getting within sniffing distance of a medal would be epic. Plus three people makes it really easy to follow their exploits.

    I already pull for Croatia and Slovenia, but I do like seeing countries win that rarely win, actually win something.

    Fuck her and Phelps. Those are two reasons why I started this thread.

    Heptathlete Hyleas Fountain. She took the silver last time around, and has fought her way through a lot of injuries to make it back.

    She's the type of person you'd want your daughter to be.
