London 2012 Olympic Games: Primetime Open Thread (August 5th)

I thought about putting another Alex Morgan picture up here (and there are quite a few to choose from) but decided to use this image from the Opening Ceremony.


This is the thread for those who are watching the primetime NBC coverage. We won't spoil any results for you.

Not much Calympians action on Day 9, but we will continue to give you a space to talk about the games and/or NBC's coverage of the XXX Olympic Games.

Here is the official NBC description for tonight:

From the gym to the track to the beach, Host Bob Costas highlights the best from day nine in London. McKayla Maroney will dazzle with her incredible vaults in the gymnastics event finals. A race for the fastest man alive in the men’s 100m semis and final tests Usain Bolt against fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake and American Tyson Gay. Can China continue their dominance in diving with a fifth gold in London? Two Americans, Cassidy Krug and Christina Loukas, advanced to the 3m springboard final along with China’s Wu Minxia. The knockouts continue on the beach with quarterfinal matches. Both American duos vie for a spot in the semifinals.
