Jacobellis wipes out again, blew it on the 2nd to last turn. I think a medal in the Olympics just isn't in her future.

Been away the whole weekend. So glad Bode finally broke though and got a medal.

And in response to the last page, people trashing Olympians from their couch. LOL. Sure the results are disappointing in speed skating so far compared to what we are used to, but come on.

Every last one of them have blaming uniforms when in reality were second rate to the rest of the world. Davis being the poster child for excuses. Not sure if you watched any of the races but they didn't belong out there, even when changing into different uniforms they were still getting straight up beat. These are PROs they aren't amateur athletes, no need to baby or defend them.

That was dispicable! Did you notice that they obscured her face after Bode walked away? Damn, she's got to be catching hell about that. What a low-life!

I think it's an exaggeration that every single US speed skater blamed their performances on the suit. A handful said they weren't a fan and requested to go back to their old suits. Shani Davis literally tweeted that all the blame lies on him. If you can show me where every last one of them blamed their loss on the suit then I will concede, but I don't think that's true.

They are just having a down year. It's possible that our best is not up to par with the best of the other countries this Olympic cycle. People age and retire and some train harder than others. Not to mention speed skating is sometimes just straight up luck and hoping you don't get crashed out of the race. It's no reason to scrap the whole team. Excuses annoy me too so I see where you're coming from, but I don't think their "excuses" are as bad as people are making them out to be.

Didn't pay attention to that just couldn't believe she would continue to shove that microphone in his face on that subject. Bode Miller is a classy guy and didn't deserve to be interviewed like that at all.

I can't find the Davis post race interview but he did blame the uniforms, what he posted on social media was done to not tick off UA enough for them to pull their sponsorship. I don't think we should scrap speed skating forever just this Olympiad since they are just embarrassing America. When America doesn't lead in total gold and total medals that Olympics is a failure, we don't play second fiddle to no country.

It was bad. It reminds me of when in 2012 gymnastics when Aly Raisman narrowly beat out reigning World Champ and teammate Jordyn Weiber to qualify for all around. They interviewed Aly with Jordyn boohooing behind her in the camera shot like 2 feet away trying to compose herself. Like, give them a minute. They are human too.

Its one thing to just get beat, but its quite another to look awful doing it. Sani Davis looked like he hadnt trained in years. Its one thing to "trash" them, but its another to point out the obvious. And the obvious is that in Davis' case, a man that was considered the best in the world, to not even place in the top five is terrible.

It doesnt take a world class athlete to realize that the man just looked out of shape. Some of the other stuff in the speed skating may just be lack of talent, but not in his case.

Somebody please slip some protein to our women figure skaters. They must have abstained from red meat ! I need hips and thighs that are the "true" signatures of a skater.

We have only had most Gold in one Winter Olympics and have only won the overall medal count a couple of times for a Winter Olympics. We didn't even win the most Gold or overall count last time we hosted in Salt Lake.

Exactly. Thank you. I don't think most people understand the US doesn't "dominate" the Winter Games.
