Tokyo "2020"


Recommended Posts

Are triathlon courses usually in laps? I thought it was usually one big course. Could be talking pish though 
Yes, they use laps quite often. Commonwealth Games used a circuit round Strathclyde Park. Means you don't have to close off lots more roads.

Haven't been watching much of it so far, just bits of the early evening highlights, but I'm pretty sure the BBC has never been as concentrated on the plucky Brits before, showing clips on somebody from Rotherham say being knocked out in an earlier round and not bothering to show the final? Maybe it's my fault for not watching the live coverage, but it's usually the middle of the night ffs.

P.S. The live commentary on the Triathlon seems ok tbf.

Some vomit after winning. Much easier to have ten pints and do that rather than a triathlon in an outdoor sauna. 

The guy who fired the start gun early is probably vomiting too.

The Norwegian wet triathlon suit / underpants combination was unfortunate. 

Conditions looked absolutely lethal for running in, and that was at 8am!

Watching the Rugby 7s - Fiji making really hard work of it against Japan - 19-19 with 3 minutes left
Fiji squeak the win - 24-19
Commentator just said the England captain there 
What about the BBC's commentator's 'casual' racist comment describing a Fijian who's "hands are about as big as a bunch of bananas". Really, in the current #BLM climate? Wrong choice of simile. Who employed him!
