Today, we have some rather frustrating news about the dirty ocean water in Rio...
A 1500m First! -Italy's years of waiting to get a 1500 meter freestyle (1 mile) gold medal, the drought is over. Gregorio Paltrinieri won the gold with a time of 14:34.57, while the Italians also got a bronze in the event with swimmer Gabriele Detti. Good for them!
Michael's final swim -Few swimming careers have been as storied as that of Micheal Phelps. Tonight, his career will come to an end with the 4 by 100 meter iM relay. Emotions are sure to run high, as we say farewell to a legend...
Boomer steals the show -Yes, that's the name of Micheal Phelps and his wife's baby... and he's stealing the show.. he's so adorable, T-Shirt and all! And once again, Rovio has Angry Bird-ified an Olympic moment- with a hatchling as Boomer! You can see that photo at the end of the post.
A unfortunate infection -The polluted Guanabara Bay may have sidelined his first athlete, as Belgian sailor Evi Van Acker has been reportedly sidelined with a intestinal infection. This is not a good sign for any events being held in the toxic waters, and I hope that sailor recovers.
That is all for now. But until tomorrow, goodnight from ROMVIEWS.WEEBLY.COM, your Olympic blog headquarters!
