At least Nole took the loss like a Champ, didn’t go and claim mental health problems like some pussies have these games

Seriously who the fuck are you trying to impress with this gimmick ?

With a team fencing gold Japan has now beat it's old record of 16 golds at Athens in '04 and Tokyo '64. Not sure if they have many more coming their way though.

Also, the South Korean archer An San leads all athletes with three golds, the first ever archer to do so which she can shove in the faces of the assholes online in South Korea.

If you thought the instant replay system in the NFL or NBA was shitty, watch Olympic soccer.  It takes forever to decide anything and unlike the other league apparently replays to watch aren't allowed? 

US women have now had TWO game winning shots in extra time called back because of being offsides.

Japan's first ever fencing gold medal, too. First non-European nation to win gold in the men's team epee as well. 

I think they have a chance to win over 20 gold medals. They dominated women's wrestling in Rio and have some gold medal hopefuls in some of the new sport categories. They will be hopeful of a baseball gold medal as well.

New Zealand is quietly doing all right as well. We have three gold medals in the rowing, which has become our most successful Olympic sport (traditionally it was athletics.) Our best Olympics was the Los Angeles Olympics in '84, which was the first Olympics I can remember seeing. We usually punch above our weight considering the size of the population.

The new sports have definitely been a boon to Japan's medal count. They are more than able to pick up medals in the other skateboard event (park) and sport climbing. There was a slight changing of the guard in women's wrestling between Rio and Tokyo though (no Icho, no Tosaka).

There's still Risako Kawai, though,

Not until you said. Fucking bastard. Posted on this board since September 2005 and he's the worst I've come across in that timeframe.

Fairly weird post history. Gone for years. Came back. Gone some more. Random nothingness. Blatant jackassery and racism to end it.

Back to the sports - didn't realize mixed relay was now a thing in track & field

I'm kind of surprised there aren't more mixed sports. Mixed double tennis, mixed double golf, about 45 different track events, etc.

In looking around there appear to have been a few added this year

Quote

At Tokyo 2020 there will be several new mixed events: 4x400m in athletics, 4x100m in swimming, team events in judo and archery, a triathlon relay, mixed doubles table tennis and three team competitions in shooting (air pistol, air rifle and trap).

And there are 4 being added for the 2022 Winter Olympics

Quote

MIXED TEAM SNOWBOARD CROSS: This is contested by teams of two. In the final, the men go first. As soon as they get to the bottom, the gates open so their female team mates can begin. 

FREESTYLE SKIING – MIXED TEAM AERIALS: Each team consists of three athletes, including at least one woman and one man. The competition, in which the scores are added together, starts with a qualification phase in which each competitor takes one run, followed by a first round of finals with eight teams and a “super final” with three teams. 

TEAM SKI JUMPING: The mixed team ski jump competition takes place on the normal hill with a woman-man-woman-man sequence, with the same scoring method as for the men’s team competition. 

MIXED RELAY IN SHORT TRACK SPEED SKATING: This competition sees national teams of two men and two women. The racing order is woman-woman-man-man. Each relay consists of two-and-a-half laps for a total distance of 2,000m

Mixed swimming is new to this Olympics. There's Mixed Diving at different events but not the Olympics yet.
