Awesome performance from the US 4x100 Ladies. They have been one of the highlights of the games throught IMO, and another medal for Allyson Felix.







I hope she runs in the 4x400 relay tomorrow.

Nice to see the US get a gold medal in wrestling with Jordan Burroughs winning the 74kg weight class.

Future Mixed Martial Arts fighter or Future WWE Superstar. That's his route. Same goes for all of the wrestlers and judo fighters.

She has said that she would run both relays, which will likely feature the gold and bronze medalists from the 400 meters, Sanya Richards-Ross and DeeDee Trotter.

She has also all but confirmed to be competing in Rio in four years, saying that it's definitely a possibility and that she thinks that she has one more Olympics left in her.

Well, it's all well with you Americans, but our national women's team won GOLD in the hockey final (against Argentina). Their second time in a row, since they also won 4 years ago in Beijing... Way more interesting if you ask me!

Awesome, Do you think she'll take the lead off leg? I really can't see any team getting near the US Ladies in the 4x400.

That's good to hear, she is only 26 and slight framed, so I think she could have another Olympics in her.

I think Allyson will go 2nd or 3rd.

Sanya Richards-Ross is unknown for Rio.

Finally got to track and field....

lol...I went to college with Ato Boldon and I must say he has aged very well. He looks like he did as a senior.

OMG....I just got to watch the Women's 100 relay....LOVE it!

I love that Jeter pointed at the record and then yelled "WHAT!!!" Classic.

WTG...that was an awesome race.

I think it's funny that the Americans have all the attention (and mostly basketball) while there's so much more... And yes I've seen the 4x100m too...

BMX racing is just gambling you don't get taken out in a crash. Almost anyone can win regardless of talent

I know what hockey is, just being facetious. And yeah, since we're winning everything and apparently breaking world records, of course we get the attention. That's how the games work, if America's teams were sucking you know we'd never hear the end of it.

Winning everything? I think not... Sure, you're topping in the medal ranking list, but everything? Hehehe...

I don't think I've seen so many medals for Great Britain... Either they win so much because it's in London, or it's something else (which I hope not).

Britain came fourth in Bejing and they only have a few more medals now than they did then.

The more successful athletes at the are olympics the more funding they get which they can spend on better equipment, coaches, ect so thats probably why they are more successful plus home crowds helps.

Olympic gold medal wrestler Jordan Burroughs was just asked about MMA. He did not completely rule it out, but said he doesn't like to get hit in the face.
