It's a boring sport guys let's be honest. It isn't popular outside the Olympics so why would they show it. That's like asking to show more ping pong games.

The only individual sports people wanna watch are track events, that's it.

I honestly am a little surprised how Gymnastics and swimming get so much coverage...

Most track events get completed really quickly. It's a perfect fit for people with short attention spans.

And if "you" dominated shooting rather than track and swimming then right now you would be waving a different set of flags.

That was a great race and probably the last Olympics for Bolt, Gatlin, and Blake (1, 2 and 4) ... De Grasse is only 21 and very new to sprinting. He might be scary good in 4 years, same with Bromwell (who seemed to let the nerves of his first Olympics get to him a bit because he's as fast as De Grasse).

Usain Bolt = Simply amazing! Some say he's kind of cocky, but he's hands the down the best sprinter I have witness!

He did not start good in yesterday's 100M final, but that come from behind kill was awesome. It was almost as if his boost kicked in the last 20M, and Bolt was like to soon Gatlin.

His turbos have a slight delay, must be running a N54.

Because certain US athletes made way too much stink about Zika. Lots of the big-name golfers used it as an excuse to not come (real reasons were probably logistics issues, no money to be made, etc.).

Brazilians were especially offended by the antics of Hope Solo (pic she posted before travelling). She then gave them further ammunition when Sweden ousted the USA and she called the Swedes "cowards" and then blatantly said that the "best team did not win". She shows no class.

Where I was for the last four days. I was a scoring volunteer at the Golf Tournament. Yesterday afternoon had some great golf by Kuchar and a very exciting finish between Stenson and Rose. I was inside the ropes all week and was just beside the 18th for the last putts and the medal ceremony. Very cool to be apart of the Olympics.
