Olympics Day 9 In Photos!

August 5, 2012

Quick one!
Andy Murray defeated Roger Federer to win gold for the home country! It was a nice moment. Federer left the stadium quickly to let Andy have his moment.

Then he went right back out and won silver with partner Laura Robson in the mixed doubles event. (Belarus won gold, USA won bronze). I love the fact that mixed doubles exists, even if I didn’t watch any of it.

Yay, you guys!

National treasures Serena & Venus Williams won gold in the women’s doubles. Serena also won gold yesterday beating Maria Sharapova.

Sanya Richards Ross (USA) won gold in the 400m final.

Usain Bolt won gold in the 100 m final and was kind of a jerk about it. Apparently someone threw a bottle at him or something, though, and that’s not okay.

Justin Gatlin won the bronze in the same event.

McKayla Maroney had a rough night but luckily still ended up with the silver. It was a bummer, but this is maybe my favorite picture ever.

Louis Smith killed it on the pommel horse and tied for first but lost the tiebreaker, winning silver.

But he lost to Hungarian Kriztian Berki, who was apparently the favorite despite not having been shown by NBC at all yet.

Gymnastics bromance!

Most importantly, I was introduced to the most confusing gymnast ever, Chile’s Enrique Tomas Gonzalez Sepulveda. He’s been doing flips this whole time without us ever knowing!
