US creams Brazil in Water Polo -As if Brazil's loss to Germany in the 2014 World Cup wasn't bad enough, in today's water polo match between the US and Brazil, Brazil couldn't even catch up in the first minute, losing hard to the US 13-3. And about Germany...
Germany holds off the US in field hockey -From the beginning of the field hockey quarterfinal, Germany had created themselves a good cushion and defense, leading 2-0 with only one period remaining. Although the German team faced many penalties, giving up a goal to the US, and even a player being sent off the field, Germany still triumphed in the end winning 2-1 and advancing to the semifinals with a nearly guaranteed shot at the podium.
South Korea goes down in Badminton -Who knew Badminton could be so exciting and nailbiting? Before I watched this game, I didn't even know that two male Koreans, Y.D. Lee and Y.S. Loo, were ranked among the best in the world. Yet, one thing was tanding between them and a chance at the podium. Malaysians W.K. Tan and V.S. Goh stunned the future 2018 Winter Olympic hosts, winning 2 sets to 1, and winning the last set 21-19. That was exciting to watch!
