Does China ever lose in diving? They seem to always win!

Phelps looked pretty good in the 200 Fly semis! HUGE kick the last 50 meters! Definitely bodes well for him moving forward.

Final 50 looked great for Phelps, but he started off weak. This is supposed to be his top event, and he didn't look too strong. Qualified 4th.

We'll have to see, though. Maybe it is strategy, maybe he's saving his energy for tomorrow.

We should check with the IOC if they award latex medals.

Olympic Tennis match of the century just ended, with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France defeating Milos Raonic of Canada 6-3, 3-6, 25-23 (the longest set in Olympic tennis history).

I guess there isn't another game for Milos .

Missy Franklin BARELY misses out on a medal in the 200 Free...one-hundredth of a second off the bronze! American Schmitt takes the gold easily.

Phelps up now!

Danell Leyva just dominated his last two events to have an epic come from behind finish and win Bronze in the all-around.

This synchronized diving in primetime is the first sport I've heard where the announcer is actually pretty good. Telling what scores people are needing to stay ahead, critiquing the dives even if they look pretty good, and very few stupid stories.

Congratulations to GABBY DOUGLAS on winning all-around gold! Raisman pushed out of medal contention due to 3rd-place tiebreaker.

About time the US actually beat somebody by a bit, no way any of the other countries should even be able to play competitively with their roster.
