    One for the girls…….


    Caeleb Dresssel sets Olympic record in 100 free, wins first individual gold

    Caeleb Dressel was as fast as advertised in the men's 100m freestyle and then some, winning his first individual Olympic gold medal with an Olympic record time of 47.02.

    Dressel, the 13-time world champion and third-fastest man in history, got off to a lightning-quick start with a 0.60 reaction time and just managed to hold off Australia's Kyle Chalmers by 0.06.

    "It was a really tough year, really hard," an emotional Dressel said. "To have the results, it really came together so I'm happy."

    Chalmers took silver and Kliment Kolesnikov of the Russian Olympic Committee claimed bronze.

    Billed as the fastest 100m final in history, it was fitting that Dressel broke the long-standing record of 47.05 that Australia's Eamon Sullivan set at Beijing 2008.

    Following the race, Dressel, a native of small-town Green Cove Springs, Florida, exchanged an emotional Microsoft Teams call with family watching from Florida.: Caeleb Dresssel sets Olympic record in 100 free, wins first individual gold | NBC Olympics

    Oar-some effort as China returns to rowing's elite


    By SUN XIAOCHEN | China Daily | Updated: 2021-07-29 09:05

    The 2020 Tokyo Olympics Thread-6101fedaa310efa1e3b2415e-jpeg


    Chen Yunxia, Zhang Ling, Lyu Yang and Cui Xiaotong power their way to gold-medal glory during the women's quadruple sculls final at the Tokyo Olympics regatta on Wednesday.

    "Guided by British legend Steve Redgrave, the Chinese rowing team has propelled its way back to the pinnacle of the Western-dominated sport thanks to its gold-bronze combo at the Tokyo Olympics regatta on Wednesday. Thirteen years after claiming the country's first Olympic rowing gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Games, Chinese rowers again proved that they have what it takes to succeed in the grueling sport by winning the women's quadruple sculls and taking a bronze in the men's double sculls on the same day at the Tokyo Games."

    Zhang Yufei of China reacts after setting a new Olympic record in women's 200m butterfly final at Tokyo Aquatics Centre in Tokyo, Japan, July 29, 2021

    "China's Zhang Yufei won her first Olympic gold in Tokyo, breaking the Olympic record in the women's 200m butterfly on Thursday. Zhang led the field from the beginning, winning gold in two minutes and 03.86 seconds and slicing 0.2 seconds off the Olympic record set by compatriot Jiao Liuyang at London 2012.

    This is the second medal for the 23-year-old, who claimed silver in the 100m butterfly earlier this week."

    No problem

    Enjoy watching the abused medicated kids.

    "Normal" women/girls can't compete with your freaks.

    Try to control your perversions, Harry

    Different courses, different courses.

    It is what it is.

    That said, I'm still not convinced about the transgender 'athletes'.

    China harvests Olympic gold, silver in table tennis women's singles


    Xinhua | Updated: 2021-07-29 21:15



    The 2020 Tokyo Olympics Thread-61034c1ea310efa1e3b2977c-jpeg


    "Chen Meng, left, and Sun Yingsha of China pose with the national flag after Chen won the women's table tennis singles at the Tokyo Olympics in Japan on July 29,2021. [Photo/IC]

    TOKYO - China's Chen Meng lived up to her status as the world No 1 by overcoming compatriot Sun Yingsha 4-2 to claim the Olympic gold medal in table tennis women's singles competition here on Thursday.

    Chen came out the winner in the all-Chinese final, 9-11, 11-6, 11-4, 5-11, 11-4 and 11-9.
    It's another major title for top-ranked Chen, following her success at the ITTF World Cup in November last year.

    Chen and Sun have secured a 1-2 finish for China, a traditional powerhouse in the sport, after eliminating Yu Mengyu from Singapore and local favorite Mima Ito respectively in the semifinals earlier on Thursday.

    "Our efforts over the past several years have paid off, and the gold and silver medals have reflected the overall strength of our Chinese team," 27-year-old Chen told a press conference after the gold medal match.

    "I experienced a lot in these past years. From losing games and facing doubts to winning gold medal today, only I am aware of the difficulty that I had down the stretch. I just want to say to myself, 'you did it'," she added.

    Familiar with each other's style of play in training and head-to-head in national or international competitions, the Chinese duo showcased their quality attack in the final in their Olympic maiden appearance.

    Youngster Sun gained an upper hand from the outset to take the opener. But Chen took the game under control in the second set.
    Although Sun managed to level the game at 2-2, Chen approached toward her first Olympic title with precise and high-caliber hits, letting out a roar every time when she scored a point en route to the win.

    After securing her gold medal, Chen ran towards the tribune to give a big hug to her coach and former Olympic champion Ma Lin.-"

    David; what it is, is that they work these girls so hard that their bodies react by not getting into puberty(which is ideal, cause height is a hinderance in gymnastics.

    Can ofcourse also be done with drugs.

    If you are interested, there are heaps of stuff on the internet.

    I know the swimming coaches don't like the girls developing breasts as it messes with their aquadynamics (Having a shape that reduces/increases drag when moving through water.)
