Amazing finish. Didn't want to end up 4th again as he did on 2016.

Last time we'll see the 50km Race Walk in the Olympics.

Most alpha Bronze medal of the Olympics for Canada.

On one hand, it truly takes endurance and fitness. I know for a fact I would die trying to do what they do, and am taking nothing away from their fitness level.

On the other hand though, it's the funniest, most cringeworthy thing I've ever seen.

The Spaniard stayed with the German too long in the race for silver not realizing Dunfee was still going. He just died out there and Dunfee passed him in the last 200m. Sprint finish!

Sweet redemption for Evan Dunfee after losing the bronze in Rio on appeal.

The real question is, did he eat any KD during the race?

High level table tennis is barely recognizable as the same sport as when amateurs play.

It's a shame that the race walk won't be in the upcoming Olympics. No doubt in my mind that it requires an extreme amount of endurance, focus and technique. I have a huge amount of respect for a guy like Evan Dunfee. That guy can race walk a 5 km distance in 18 minutes. Sure they look a little goofy doing it, but it's still an incredibly demanding sport. Also I see him ripping around Richmond all the time. Gonna honk my horn next time I see him!

I'll say it again, the boxing in these Olympics has been incredible. 9 minutes of fury.

Honestly, the Olympics should have a second set of medals for non-Chinese divers when it comes to Diving.

Just give each Chinese diver a Gold and then have another Gold-Silver-Bronze for the 3rd-5th ranked divers.

It's unfair how good they are. Just pure domination every event.

I'm obviously kidding (only half-kidding, but still)

Heh they don't sweep everytime, someone always sneaks in to get gold. They are actually more dominant in table tennis. They lost one match in 17 years.

I believe they've won every Gold (+ every silver in the individual events) in the Diving events minus the one where Great Britain snuck the Gold in Synchro, no?

As for table tennis, that's not surprising at all but still...
