Finished 3-0. IwaBOOOOOchi starts for Japan against Canada. These are the other two in Britain's group.

Oh, and Brazil battered China 5-0.

Zambian forward Barbra Banda scores a hat-trick against the Netherlands. Zambia lose 10-3.

I think she has a right to be aggrieved by her teammates' efforts.

To be honest, Coronavirus is rampant here, there is little testing, and not that many people are vaccinated. A shit show by all accounts.

Feel really sorry for the athletes who catch the virus and have to pull out

Is softball the same as baseball but with underarm bowling?

Edit: oh and they seem to have only seven innings because it finished pretty much as soon as I put it on. Over to the football I go.

Why does rowing have "Olympic Bests" instead of "Olympic Records"?

Probably the same as with Marathons, maybe some of the course is uphill ;) :)

Basically yes, with a different sized diamond and bigger ball. Pitcher is closer to the batter than in baseball.

Love the Olympics (especially the Winter games) and delighted they're going ahead as the athletes only get their chance every 4 years. Also cheer for Team GB as long as I think they're clean (so Farah not being there this year helps).

Usually watch the opening and closing ceremonies but this one is very dull so far.

The university I work for here has provided a large number of previous Olympic athletes for Japan over the years.

A small local school here has 1 Olympian and 1 Paralympian competing in Tokyo. The former is a reigning European Boxing Champion at Middleweight so she should have a chance at a medal.

Even my wife has turned it off. That says it all for me! :)

Our town's Paralympian goal medallist seems to be the only properly entitled person who parks in the disabled spots at the local sports centre.

The rest of the spots* are taken up by able bodied customers.

* quite a few people park on the hash marks between the spaces. I guess this allows them to say to themselves that they're not really parked in a disabled spot.

It's been turned back on-Best shoes award goes to North Macedonia.

Australians seem to be the only nation wearing shorts. Makes sense really as it's humid as fuck here.
