US's Kim Rhode hit 99 of 100 targets on her way to gold in skeet shooting. She has medaled in five straight Olympics.

Would have been ok if it were the length of a halftime show.

Too long, lack of coherency. It's as if they wanted to present something from everything British.

except the Revolution
We were beaten by the French!!!!

That's pretty s**tty for Jordyn Wieber. She was the favorite for all-around gymnastics gold and didn't qualify for the top 24 that compete even though she was 4th in qualifying. The new rule that limits it to 2 competitors from each country is stupid.

It's partly about national competition etc, but the olympics are really about individual excellence and just because 3 of the top 4 in the world are from the same country shouldn't mean that 1 gets kept out of the competition. She earned it over 20 other people that get in over her on a technicality, not because they're better. Lame.

seriously. these athletes lives' are just training every day for this moment. and to be not allowed to qualify because of a dumb rule like that is ridiculous
