Team USA Guns Down 27-Year-Old World Record

This is one of my favorite photos so far of the Olympic Games!  How awesome is this?  Carmelita Jeter knew Team USA was running fast in the women's 4 x 100m Relay.  And, when she crossed the finish line, she realized they had gunned down the world record

Chad’s Olympics Preview for Thursday, August 2nd

 

Wednesday was another HUGE day for Team USA.  Sure we suffered some unexpected upsets in archery and fencing (world #1 Brady Ellison went down in the Round of 16 in men's archery and two-time defending Olympic gold medalist Mariel Zagunis was bounced in the semis of women's fencing), but all in all it was a good day.  U.S. gymnast Danell Leyva made an inspired comeback to take bronze in the men's individual all-around.  Missy Franklin and Allison Schmitt gained additional golds in the women's 4x200 meter relay by upsetting Australia by nearly two seconds.  And Nathan Adrian clinched gold in the men's 100 meter freestyle in a thriller!  He won by .01!  So, what does Thursday have in store for us in London?

Chad’s Olympic Preview for Wednesday, August 1st

The United States needed yesterday.  We have been toe-to-toe with China in the overall medal count, but our biggest stars, like Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte, hadn't quite been living up to their billing so far in London, though they rocked it out for gold last night in the mean's 4x200 meter freestyle relay!  It just seemed like Team USA needed a great big jolt.  And they got one last night, as the U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team just put a virtual beat-down on the rest of the world in the team competition.  They won gold by over 5 points, a margin of victory rarely seen in a sport usually decided by tenths of a point instead.  So, what can Team USA look forward to today?

Team USA Wins Women’s Gymnastics GOLD!!!

Move over, Magnificent Seven!  Make way for the Fab Five!!  For the first time since 1996, Team USA has won the team gold in Women's Gymnastics at the Olympics!  And, in London just moments ago, they did by putting an absolute smackdown on the competition!  Four years ago in Beijing, the U.S. Women were outperformed by a controversially young Chinese team.  This Olympics, there was no controversy at all . . . just the gymnastics equivalent of a knockout!  They won by 5.066 points.  That is UNHEARD of!!!  Here's how it played out . . .

Chad’s Olympic Preview: Monday, July 30th!

Ya'll know I am a huge Olympic fan.  In fact, I seriously have an addiction.  I'm a full-fledged junkie.  So, I have decided to give you guys a sneak peak into each day's Olympic highlights.  And, now that I have recovered from the Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw concert in Indy Saturday night (and, yes, I had to miss Ryan Lochte swimming to gold in the Men's 400-meter IM), I am ready to "let the games begin."  Here's what to expect on Monday, July 30th!

Flo Jo’s Daughter Goes for the Gold on America’s Got Talent [Video]

There have been some terrific performances already this season on America's Got Talent.  We've had sensational, unexpected show-stopping moments from the likes of Andrew De Leon and the usual, quirky, but hilarious moments like the one offered up by Twiggy the Water-Skiing Squirrel.  But last week, during the final audition round, we were treated to a truly Olympic moment, when Mary Joyner, the daughter of Olympic champions Florence Griffith and Al Joyner, took the stage and showed the world her gold-medal worthy talent.  No, she doesn't run.  She SINGS!!  And she is brilliant.  WATCH!
