    I thought Sobirov was the clear favourite for -60kg?

    Dunno about clear favourite.

    I just like Zantaria more as a fighter and reckon he can pull it out the bag.

    I know everyone is excited about the Judo (I would be too if it aired on my cable sub), but I started watching the boxing.

    Diaz Jr is a 19 year old boxer for the USA and is trained by his father. The commentators said his father learned to box from watching Youtube videos and reading books.

    Was the internet around in 93? Let alone Youtube? Wtf am I missing here and how did someone who trained under a Youtube coach get to box at an Olympic level?

    Arsen Galstyan was on fire. Didn't see all of his matches, but the first couple + finals were pretty damn impressive.

    The women's 48kg final was kinda weird. Judo refs aren't allowed to stop the match when someone's elbow has already been fucked twice in the first minute or so?
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

    due to the time difference, i've been trying to start watching the live stream at 9am EST to catch the end of the prelims and the medal rounds, then i try to catch up on the prelims on replay throughout the day (yesterday streaming issues made that very difficult so i only watched mat A) catching up on these is going to be tough.

    IMO there was a lot of great newaza in the <60kg and <48kg divisions, with the refs giving enough time as long as there was action going on, and a surprising number of wins by juji gatame.

    hpr, what would you have had the ref do? it's up to her if she wants to keep fighting with an injured arm, and it was injured by legit techniques, so there was no reason to penalize her opponent.
