Costas Rips Usain Bolt: Olympics News and Notes For August 19

  • NBC's Bob Costas said on last night's Olympics broadcast that he didn't like Jamaica's Usain Bolt showboating and pounding his chest during Bolt's 100 meters victory. He thought it was disrespectful to the competitors and did not exemplify the Olympic spirit.  As usual, I disagree with the midget once again. Bolt worked very hard to perform well in Beijing and he should show emotion and youthful exuberance. Costas was probably never an athlete and doesn't know how it feels to win an athletic competition. 
  • Sporting News Radio's Peter Brown said that the swimsuits worn by the swimming competitors  today gives them a great advantage. He cites Dara Torres being able to swim faster now than when she was in her twenties.  Torres is 41 years old.  Brown also questioned how fast Phelps would have swam wearing Mark Spitz' speedos from the 70's.  I think he also mentioned how the new swimsuits today give the swimmers 5% more oxygen.
  • NBC showed more American bias when the gymnastics analysts and announcers complained about China's gymnast winning the gold over Nastia Liukin last night in one of the gymnastic competitions. The announcers also questioned the Chinese gymnast's age again.  Talk about sore losers and whiners.
  • Susanna Kallur, the Swedish hurdles runner, got off to a slow start, and fell down trying to jump the first hurdle last night. You can see the video of this on my blog. It is one of the most popular videos on D Wizzle's World right now.

Costas should eat a d**k. Didn't Phelps and company pound their chests as well in one of the relay victories. It's a freakin olympic gold. Let them celebrate.

Costas is an idiot! He has to be one of the worst commentators around along with that fake tan and botox on his face.

War Bolt!

Complaining about the Chinese cheating?

Hey, who were all those athletes that were caught using steroids and had to give their medals back?

Oh yeah, AMERICAN CHEATERS so shut the f*ck up.

You know, at the point that Costas can go out there and run a 9.69, then he talk, otherwise, he needs to STFU.

What an embarrassment Costas is, and what a tool.

She has an amazing body and has inspired a lot of women to participate in sports and take interest in fitness that are over 40.
