Simple. Input your height/weight. Then you get matched up with an athelete(s) of similar build.
Lol whaaat, why did it give me an athlete who's 4 inches taller than me??? It's some british guy in the 'men's team'. Whatever team that would be @__@

Anyways, I had to manually search for my similar athlete as this thing can't tell the difference between 175 and 185. At 175cm, 56 kg (I'm 176cm, 57kg), there's two people. SK's Ji Hyun Sung in Badminton and UK's Luke Campbell of boxing.

Probably the female korean as my neck is way too long and thin for boxing. How can you be that tall and lightweight for boxing to begin with? Maybe he has hollow titanium for bones.

EDIT* Oh fantastic, I didn't even know featherweight boxing existed, apparently this is even lighter than that (bantamweight). This must be the sport where your own swings can send yourself flying.

Oh, apparently Ye Shiwen was already tested clean. I guess all those verbal attacks were just envious fans. xD

That's because the bronze medal is mainly made of copper and is only worth £3, where the silver and gold medals are worth £210 and £410 respectively although the value of the bronze medal is slightly more than what all the big names at the opening ceremony were paid even though that was just for contractual purposes.

Why is it made so cheaply? I've gotten gold, silver and bronze medals in the past and because of the small competitions they were from, I'm pretty sure they're made of cheap materials. And even those were more durable.

Well, I missed the table tennis match between Fukuhara Ai and Ding Ning. Apparently, Ai-chan lost to Ding Ning (ranking #1 in the world), but some say her playing has improved greatly.

3 Bronzes for Canada now? My Canadian side isn't so depressed anymore. I felt really sad when one of our athletes didn't qualify for some canoeing finals. I believe it was what we got gold in at Beijing 2008.

^Yeah, I'm so happy for Canada! It's nice after seeing just China and the US getting so many XD And it looks like Korea's going to get another gold for judo as well!

Edit: Yes we did! YAY!

Well Missy Franklin won a gold in the 100 back She goes to a high school in our school district, so I've actually met her at meets before. Now I can say I've met a gold medal olympian in real life

Man, this Dogulas girl is so lean that her legs look extremely long, and it looks like she has springs on them. American gold medal for sure.

Almost moment of truth for Phelps, He has to get a medal in all his remaining events (Relay and something else) to be the most medal-winning athlete in Olympics right? Or did he lose that chance already?

How come Shiwen from China didn't even compete in the heats for 200m freestyle? Her freestyle seems obviously the strongest than Medley which she is competing in, an hour after.

*UPDATE:
Silver for Phelps. 5ms behind Gold. Sad it's not gold but he's just 1 USA relay away from 18 medals~

I'm no swimming expert but it looked like Phelps totally bombed the last 50, bad turn which probably led to an irregular "path" leading him getting out touched. Very disappointed, he better still get 3 golds at least to walk out without retiring in shame. Actually, losing in his signature event like this is already quite upsetting.

I only caught the final touch...

Sometimes, winning these races can take a bit of luck... and he wasn't lucky there.

What..? I went to news.google.ca and opened up sports section for some Olympics news and look at the name of people on the left. I'm not kidding, I took this just less than a minute ago.

It's not Seven anymore? Anyways, you could try looking for some streaming sites on google, try for BBC's stream.
