Can Natalie Coughlin tie the US record for most medals ever today? What kind of medal would be #12?
First official night of primetime Olympics coverage should include some Cal presence. This is the East Coast thread. Hopefully, by providing this thread for the East Coast viewers, West Coast viewers who want to watch in primetime and have avoided spoilers (GOOD LUCK!) can do so. We'll see if there is sufficient interest in an East Coast thread to help avoid spoilers and go from there. At 8 PM PST, the West Coast thread will come up for the primetime viewing. We'll probably remove this from the front page, although it will still be an active thread where East Coasters can still discuss all the late night action.
Here is the official description
Host Bob Costas takes you around London and looks at the day in swimming,including the first of two head-to-head meetings between Lochte and Phelps in the 400m IM and how the U.S. women fared in the final of the 4x100m freestyle relay. The show moves from the pool to gymnastics and highlights the men’s qualifications. Finally, two-time defending Olympic beach volleyball champions Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings face their first challenge in their quest to become the first three-time beach champions.
