Rivalries Stretching Across New Sports - 2012 Olympic Games Day 11 Open Thread


Well, we are now into the last week of the Olympics. It's amazing how time can fly, eh? Especially when Canada still only has 1 gold medal... Could've landed a spot in a gold medal match yesterday for women's soccer if not for those damn Americans.......
Anyways, as we approach the end, you'll notice that the format after the jump has changed a little bit. For one, I am now pointing out quarterfinal and semifinal rounds now as well as the medal rounds. This is because almost all the events have reached that point in their schedules. You'll also notice that I've listed Canadian participants in the square brackets and italics following all the events, so that we can try to see where we have medal hopes. As always, check out and for plenty of coverage.
