I love your blog Dave, especially agree with the swimming comments. It’s a slap in the face to athletes everywhere calling Phelps the greatest Olympian ever when essentially only a swimmer can garner that title since they swim it seems all day everyday for a month and medals go to every race. Don’t worry NBC shows every single heat and final! 😦 I’d rather watch Lu Xiaojun eat eggs in the morning.
“… in a sport where they give out medals every time someone falls in a pool …”
There is a simple solution. The IWF should create more events. For instance, 2 snatches, 3 snatches,…, 2 clean and jerks, 3 clean and jerks,…, power jerk,…, and all the combinations.
And, of course, the Klokov complex: http://youtu.be/ZwYbiZwbkuY
Awesome writing, busted me up.
