Hubby and I have noticed that quite a few atheletes are messing up in the Olympics. Watching the men's gymnastics, almost every guy messed up at least one thing (if not TWO) during each performance. What is wrong with these guys? I do expect to see some messed up performances - but I was not guessing the error rate would be something like 80%!? Don't these guys spend upwards of 8 hours a day on this stuff? Guys that screwed up were even getting high scores because compared to the other guys, they were doing pretty well.
In men's synchronized diving (don't ask me what the point of this 'sport' is), the guys from Great Britain did a TERRIBLE dive and got cheers and even a 9.0 from the judges...Shocking!
