    Gemma Gibbons from GB just made it through to the final in Judo so she's guaranteed a medal. When she won she looked up and mouthed 'I love you mum' - her mum died when she was 17. Ahh that choked me up!

    Sluce- That must be cool watching people you know!

    Rowing is like a cult. LOL. Many of the women attend college in the US and row for their schools here. Then they row for their home country for Worlds and the Olympics. It's fun to see college teammates then row against each other at the world level. Many of them also row for club teams in Philly in the summer to stay in shape so local families often let them live with them, get them part-time summer jobs, etc. I have had a few live with us for summers in the past.

    I'm a bit excited we just got gold and silver in the two-man canoe slalom!

    Almost. She was close, but she came in 4th. She apparently had a mishap on the balance beam.

    Kudos to Michael Phelps for getting his 20th medal! Crazy!

    I'm happy Chris Hoy got his 5th gold too, in the cycling.

    Us Weekly just posted this pic on its FB page of Kate and Wills watching Oly tennis. I guess GB is doing well! They look cute.

    They just did a preview of a special that they're doing on the Magnificent 7 tomorrow night and they showed Shannon Miller and Dominique Dawes in the crowd. Dominique Dawes is gorgeous - her face is stunning. And I read the other day that apparently Shannon Miller had ovarian cancer 2 or 3 years ago. Had no idea. She's only 35 years old. I think she's in remission now, but shit that's some scary shit.

    I bet Aliya Mustafina is a holy terror to coach. Girlfriend looks like a Diva. She just fell off the balance beam and when her coach went to pat her on the back afterwards she smacked his hand away. She can't even keep up appearances on camera. I love it.

    I bet no one has heard from Anastasia Grishina since Tuesday when she failed to complete her tumbling pass. They're probably roasting her over a spit as we type.

    I can't find a good picture of her soul stare, but it's chilling yet hilarious at the same time.
