    I think this is just a case where everyone wants NBC to show their own personal favorite sports. I imagine NBC has a ton of historical data on what events generate the most interest and most ratings and has organized its coverage accordingly.

    We reached the finals in waterpolo, beating the legendary Hungary at that.
    2 of the players come from my hometown and my swimming club!
    The captain of the team used to be my schoolmate.

    Most of the children join swimming clubs and the best of the best make it to waterpolo. In younger national teams we make half the players but we finally will win in the Olympics.
    After I don't know how many years my island will again have Olympians.

    Just overheard the minute I turned on NBCSN: "We know you've all missed the horses, so lets get back to the equestrian center..."

    @KingCheetah, just thought you should know.

    Mexico beat Japan 3-1 for the bronze medal in soccer.

    In the 68 Olympics Mexico lost to Japan for the bronze... although players from that 68 Mexico team have said they took a dive against Japan in the bronze game and Bulgaria in the semis because they were unhappy with the payouts.

    Yo, If I knew what I was watching, I bet this wrestling match would be exhilarating. winning gold at the last second is pretty cool. Doing back flips at 275 lb? he should be a football player!

    whoa, a person from the USA running with the Africans in a marathon? wacky.

    Why would anyone want to put themselves through the pain of a marathon!?

    Congrats to this girl who won a bronze, wow.

    I realized after I said it! I'm glad they did, even though I had seen it live the night before on USA.

    Prandini to Gabby Thomas was an awful pass. Not that it would have mattered against the Jamaicans.
