    I figured out they only did the light show for the last sprint final on the track each night and then for the final 2 days all the relays. It just so happens that many of the last events have been male sprints.

    Sorry guru, I was not critical of the medical complications but of the announcers giving excuses. That "certain tennis star" had several significant risk factors going into delivery that resulted in decision for emergency C-section to achieve successful healthy baby. The patient, however, continued to have progressive problems that were complicated by giving heparin which increased complications.
    She is very fortunate to have made a complete medical recovery but still has the pre delivery medical risk problems to deal with.
    I applaud her for her amazing comeback, she is an amazing athlete and has tried her best to be #1. The announcers are the ones who make it as "motherhood" when it really is a medical risk and complication issue that may limit her return to her sport.

    Anyhow praise and bless our track and field champion mothers.

    Big Game Nia Ali! One of my favorite athletes. I had no doubt that she would medal, but I didn’t expect at big PR and a win! And I’m really happy for Keni Harrison for running a big time race and finishing strong. Congrats to both ladies!

    I am pumped for Ali, but even moreso for Keni, who seemed destined for Global disappointment. She was crying with joy in the interveiew.
