I need to mention my new favourite athlete of the Olympics, High Jump Gold Medalist Ivan Ukhov. Took off his team tank top between jumps and then couldn't find it. The camera followed him for five minutes as he looked in bags, shook out clothing, crawled to look under seats until an official came over to tell him he was about to be dq'd for taking too long. So he just grabbed a random blue Adidas shirt, stuck his bib on it, and had to rush to make the jump (he nailed it). Didn't miss a jump the rest of the way to gold.
That was funny, but while this was going on the announcers relayed a story about how he was reprimanded earlier this year for competing at a meet while drunk.
EDIT - INTERNET, ACTIVATE: Form of: FOOTAGE OF IVAN UKHOV DRUNK JUMPING!
That music makes that whole thing. That's also what I'd look like jumping too. "If no one minds, I'm just going to lie here awhile..."
I'm officially adopting that man as my internet son, I'm so proud of my little Russian Ivan.
Although apparently I misheard and it wasn't earlier this year.
Usain Bolt is amazing. Not only that but it's a Jamaican sweep in the 200m. Going to be one hell of a party in Kingston tonight.
Plus they still are favourites for the 4X100 relay in both men's and women's as well. Dangerous to count medals before they are awarded but could be the greatest Jamaican Olympics ever if they finish it off.
