bluepill me on Olympic walking, /sp/. help my understand why a sport where you have to physically limit yourself exists.
Every sport physically limits athletes.
It's called "rules" and it is what makes a sport a sport.
That's why boxers don't stab their opponents in the eyes or runners don't shortcut over the green during 8000 metres race.
but those limits are different, germany. it's like telling boxers they're not allowed to punch too fast. what other sport is there where it's against the rules to put in more effort?
Would you rather be reincarnated as Michael Phelps, GGG, Michael Jordan, or Eminem?
I think I'm in love /sp/.
She's perfect for me. She's tall, strong, blonde, interested in politics. She's everything I've ever wanted in a woman.
To know that I will never have her, that she will never know I exist, it eats away at me inside. I have nothing, no job, no girlfriend, no future.
I was good at something once. I was an all-state tuba player in high school. I gave it up to study chemistry in college. I stuck to my studies, got A's and B's, but never bothered talking to my professors or making connections. I was...

I always start to feel a little sad when it's nearing the end ;_;
>mfw an american jumped into a body of water and started kicking his feet and flapping his arms near me
It feels so good to be apart of the greatest civilization in human history.
Holy shit, I would hate to be born in any other country than The US of A.

REST OF THE WORLD ARE YOU EVEN TRYING???
Anglobros, we should pull comfortable ahead tomorrow with track cycling coming up and then athletics, which the EPoo is below average at outside of Schippers in the 200m and the Polish in the hammer throws.
We run this shit.
how are athletes from african shitholes getting their blood-boosting designer drug regimen?
>tf too intelligent to enjoy the Olympics and national pride for sporting achievements
Dose U.S.A winning the medals table prove whites are the most dominant in sports?
Whites have won more golds for the US and with GBR about to overtake China, thanks to their white track cycling team and rowers.
Dose this not prove whites are winning the Olympics?
>We still have 0 (ZERO) medals by men
there's still time right? right?
>Putting the two fullbacks in central midfield
WOW WHAT A GENIUS
we need to go deeper
>silva rejigged as a very deep playmaker, playing between the two centre backs
>navas at fullback
>hart on the wing
>gundogan as a false 9 with aguero in midfield behind him
the world won't be ready
>BT Sport asked Glenn Hoddle what he thought of the match and if he enjoyed it
>he said it was 'interesting'

>said he'll get found out if he continues
>rebecca adlington finally off the fucking tv
Anyone else relieved? Hopefully the BBC don't take her to Tokyo.
She's been the worst thing about BBC's coverage.
Why is Swimming such as meme sport where someone can get so many events?
Why does Breastroke, Butterfly, and Backstroke exist when its slower than freestyle?
Its like in track if the runners had to skipping events and running backwards
The USA now has more than 1000 golds at the Summer Olympics.
Why do other countries even bother showing up when they will just get BTFO?
This is a mistake
The Olympics should be held in the same city every time, and that city should be New York given that it is the financial, cultural, and sporting capital of the world.
>not holding the Olympics on neutral grounds
The only logical place to hold the Olympics is pic related. Think about it. You know you want to see it happen.
>has chance to beat Murray
>will only get 1 gold medal for this
>meanwhile some asshole gets 20 medals for swimming on his stomach and on his back for 4 different distances
the difference is that a tennis gold medal isn't really the peak of the sport, while a swimming gold is
there are so many different events so that individual swimmers have a better chance of getting gold, since it's the highest form of their discipline
imagine if there were only like 10 events and the same 2-3 people won every time
Explain this to me, /sp/
Why is the score 15-30-40 in Tennis and not something like 1-2-3 or 10-20-30 or 5-10-15.
The current point system isn't logical. Perhaps there's a logical explanation behind it, but I can't figure it out.
>also if double digits we choke tomorrow
can we stop fighting and all discuss something for a moment?
LETS CELEBRATE THE ANGLOSPHERE AND THE GREATEST SPORTING NATIONS ON EARTH
If Jessica Ennis hadn't had a kid she would've won a gold again.
Is it irresponsible of female athletes to have children?
