Could not be any more pleased for him.

  • ……. Does anyone else imagine Samuel L. Jackson just sitting in a room with 10 tv’s and like 20 monitors with all the Olympics livestreams playing and yelling tweets at Siri? 

NGL, Mandy, this is pretty much exactly as I imagine it.

"The part NBC doesn’t show you is that after the competition, Nick Fury shows up and asks Gabby Douglas to join the Avengers"

As someone who’s been glued to Samuel L. Jackson’s twitter recently (dude is the most hilariously biased American fan EVER) I gotta tell you—I’m pretty sure he’d be up for it.

“To all those who doesn’t know the story behind this photo.
Douglas came up to crying Komova and said, “Hey! You did incredible job. You inspire me.”, and Komova said, “Thank you! You were amazing. You inspire me, too. Congratulations.” 
According to the rules, they hugged, but their hug was something more than just following the rules. And they both said, “see you next time”. So, I guess, we all just have to wait and see a beautiful fight of two divas”.” from the German sport news, today.

"And it is the smile that will haunt every other competitor she left in a heap behind her – the sweet, wonderful smile of one of the most cold-blooded sporting assassins you’ll ever find."

This is so cute and so touching. The excitement on le Clos’s face, the smile on Phelps’s, even though it meant the end of over a DECADE of dominance in the 200m fly. The passing of the torch to the younger generation, in Michael’s last Olympics.

Oh look, it’s raining on my face.

Kayla Harrison Becomes First American Woman to Win Gold in Judo

Kayla Harrison won gold in Judoka half-heavyweight division (78kg) and while this accomplishment is a testament to her skill in her sport, her true strength is what it took her to get here. Harrison was a victim of sexual abuse for years by her first Judo coach - and a family friend - Daniel Doyle. Doyle is now now serving a ten year prison term for these crimes. She didn’t let this horror define her or take away her love for the sport. After Daniels sentencing, she moved to Boston and re-committed herself to her Olympic dream - winning gold. On her ordeal, Harrison says:

“Because of this taboo our society places on being the victim, I couldn’t look in the mirror and had no self-esteem. Now I can’t imagine not speaking up against that. It’s so wrong and I don’t want others to have to suffer what I did.

“I hope that, by coming out with my story, my past will help people’s futures,” she says. “That little boy or little girl. I want them to know it’s OK to come out and talk about it and find there’s help.

“I’ve had a lot of older people come up and say, ‘I read your story and I wished I had done something too’. You look in their faces and can see the regret, how it changed their lives and it makes you feel sad for them. Yet it just clinches the feeling in me, that I did the right thing.”
