Default Day 10 (PM of August 1 - AM of August 2)

I'm posting early again because I'm golfing this morning and I know I'll need a nap in the afternoon. As always check the CBC Website for streaming links as well as CBC Gem and the CBC Olympics app.

The Final of the Womenís 100m Hurdles starts at 20:50

At 19:00 Sarah Pavan and Melissa Humana-Paredes have their Round of 16 match, I think this will be on SN or SN1.

At 18:30 the Womenís K1 200m Sprint begins and I think it should be on TSN2. Andreanne Langlois is in Heat 3, Michelle Russell is in Heat 5. The Quarterfinals will begin at 21:00.

At 02:00 it is a rematch of the epic 2012 Olympic Semifinal in Womenís Soccer as Canada takes on the United States. I think that it will be on either CBC or SN1. Canít wait to see who the ref is this time.

At 02:02 the Menís Cycling Track Team Pursuit Qualification starts.

At 04:20 the Womenís Pole Vault Qualification begins, Alysha Newman is in Group A, Anicka Newell is in Group B. At 04:25 the Womenís 200m Semifinals start.

Sage Watson of Medicine Hat competes in the first race of the Womenís 400m Hurdles Semifinals at 05:35. The Menís 3000m Steeplechase Final is at 06:15, Matt Hughes tries to improve on his 10th place finish in Rio, John Gay is also running for Canada. At 06:40 the Womenís 5000m Final begins, Andrea Seccafien races for Canada. Morning Athletics Events should be on CBC.

At 04:30 the Preliminary Round of the Womenís Artistic Duet Swimming starts. Calgarian Claudia Holzner and Jacqueline Simoneau are the Canadian competitors.

At 05:00 the Menís Singles Badminton Bronze Medal Match begins. The Gold Medal Match starts at 05:50.

The referee for the Canada-USA game will be Kateryna Monzul of Ukraine.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kateryna_Monzul

She'd very experienced and considered one of the best so I don't think there will be any funny business. She's reffed since the 2007 women's world cup. She refs in the Ukrainian men's league.


She reffed the opening game back in Edmonton at the 2015 World Cup. Canada got a penalty to beat China 1-0 And the reffed the final in Vancouver which USA defeated Japan 5-2.

What are Canadaís chances against the USA? Would be nice to win a major title with this being Sinclairís likely last kick at the can.

Well the bettings odds are +400 for Canada to win, but I think Canada has better chances than that. The American team has not particularly looked great this tournament.

US is probably the better team, but they haven't looked as sharp this tourney as they have other times.

In all of sport, is there a single team anywhere that's as unlikeable as the US womens soccer team? I almost hope they lose more than we win.

That is +400 to win in 90 minutes. It's +240 to advance. US is favored about 65 to 35.

Dumb story alert. A few years ago I was in New Orleans for business trip and the hotel lobby was packed with young girls and their Moms. Maybe a few Dads too. I didn’t know why and assumed there was someone like Justin Bieber staying there. Ended up taking the elevator down with some members of the USWNT who were on their way to a friendly at the Superdome.

I was shocked at the crowd there just to catch a glimpse of these athletes and TBH it kind of changed my perspective. Hard not to respect the impact they have had.

A toxic impact. They’re easily one of the least likeable teams in sports. Unless you’re a fan of frivolous lawsuits and obnoxious behaviour.

Wait, that explains perfectly why Americans love them so much.

It's a brand. People love the USA Womems team. But separate the players and put them in league uniforms and nobody cares.

This gave me a good chuckle at least.

Brand, players, whatever. Just pointing out their popularity which I really donít think is either toxic or based on their negatives.

That was incredible. Sifan Hassan of The Netherlands trips over in the 1500 quali on last lap and still comes back to win the heat.

I just saw the last lap of Hassan falling and coming back, absolutely incredible moment.

Pavana and Humana-Paredes win in straight sets, two Canadian teams in the Quarterfinals!

Wow. That 18 year old from Namibia's closing speed was incredible.

I don't want to derail but the policing of women's testosterone levels in the Olympics is bonkers.
