I'm sure there is minutia differences in the rides, but every one looked identical to me, and not very exciting to boot. I guess it takes all sorts, and I appreciate this is an old establish Olympic "sport", but come on!

What's a bar ? been trying to remember.

It is a place where people go for a drink. It is not that important now really…

I think I vaguely remember them.

Blimey! I assume she drops her "H's" also... What a dick!

I'd be more upset by his pompous private school accent if he was doing the commentating... not that he would lower himself to such a menial task.

The BMX gold won by Charlotte Worthington, was very good to watch to do a somersault with a bike, that is awesome, I can’t even touch my toes….ffs

Weird seeing an Italian win men’s 100m Gold.

No Jamaicans in the final is weird too


I think if Hughes had not got himself disqualified we would have seen a medal he is fast

Aside from the issues over broadcast rights, the BBC Sport website isn't doing a great job of providing coverage - their whole website seems stuck in 2003.

ESPN website is much better, and has something missing from almost every other sports outlet I've looked at - a full list of what's on and when on 1 page.

I'm using the NHK website, since that's where I'm watching the streams as well. https://en.sports.nhk.or.jp/olympic/schedules/day/ Not sure if you guys can watch the live streams without a VPN but they keep the results updated.

Cheers, that's a much better layout. Don't seem to be able to change time zone, though!

Well done to the Indonesian women's doubles. Unseeded but beat the Chinese to take the gold in straight sets.

The wife is now receiving multiple texts, WA, Instagram messages all playing the national anthem.

Enjoying all the Velodrome action, women earlier (new WR from the Germans) and now men's team pursuit qualifiers and Denmark apparently the favourites for the first time after their Berlin world record times last year, but sure GB will be up there as well.

Michael Johnson shutting Denise Lewis down. :D

Enjoyed the men's team pursuit earlier, but that handlebar failure for the Australian crash was nasty though, can just imagine the carnage if he had been up front.

Men's Badminton final now

Laurel Hubbard, the transgender female weightlifter, absolutely flopped.
