Tokyo "2020"

Recommended Posts

Shock defeat for Naomi Osaka in the tennis, losing to world number 42 Marketa Vondrousova in straight sets.

Murray and Salisbury won the first set 6-2, but it was all square in the second at 5-5.

Edit: Goes into a second set tiebreak.

And another last second defeat for a British Taekwondo athlete. Bianca Walkden fought back after being behind for pretty much the whole fight, and also getting 8 penalties, to lead with 3 seconds to go, only to be booted in the head (technical term) on the buzzer.

Can't really blame the coach when she was gesturing to him to challenge. British taekwonders are brilliant at losing the match in the last five seconds.

Can't see Taekwondo-ing it replacing Hibsing it, sadly.

Bianca Walkden manages it again. 24-22 up and concedes a 3 point head kick in the very last second in the SF. The top seed will fight for bronze later.

The British lassies competing in the "try not to drown, whilst fannying about in a boat" race in floods of tears after her run is nearly twice as long as the person in first.

If I got to the end without drowning I wouldn't be in tears she should look on the bright side.

USA are no mugs in sevens.

USA are an excellent side, but GB have been shite. I'd actually argue USA have another gear, not sure GB can come back against them, especially with Perry Baker out there.
