    I wonder how much individual stroke play will be going on during the men's floor final. LOL

    So we're guaranteed at least three medals today, aren't we? Do we have anyone in the pommel horse final?

    Yes. We have current Pommel Horse world champion and a Strictly Come Dancing Champion.

    All these golfers appear to have servants doing the hard work.

    A British medal in the golf is seeming pretty likely at the moment. Justin Rose is seven shots ahead of fourth place a few holes into his final round. There's also an outside chance of an Irish medal as Seamus Power is only one shot outside the bronze medal position.

    There's some wrestling going on on the red button and it's like my porn fantasy come true. :horny:

    I feel like I ought to watch the wrestling, but it's just grown men hugging on the floor. I like my wrestling nonsensical and flamboyant.

    It's look good. Only Mikulak has done higher than 15.7 so far in Rio.

    Max sandwiched by the two Brazilians on the podium would be quite nice.

    Only Mikulak can ruin it now. Probably least twatish of the American men.

    He's the one who wants gymnasts to compete shirtless.

    If we win two more Golds this evening and China win no more Golds, we will be 2nd.

    Yes, just about to say that. Claire Balding's quick summary of our already guaranteed medals today (Tennis, Cycling, Golf) just floored me.

    Pretty much guaranteed. Three golfers way out in front.

    I'd be quite thrilled if Lewis Smith got gold, especially after the injustice of 2012, but I'd be happy if Max got double.

    It concludes in about an hour and Justin Rose is pretty much gold or silver. I put a small each way bet on him AND Henrik Stenson last week. I know nothing about golf but you tend to win a lot with each-way bets because they sometimes pay out for as much as anyone coming Top 8.

    My ideal result would be the pommel medals to Max, Louis and Harutyun Merdinyan.

    Clare Balding seems to think there are guaranteed golds on the way... what makes her so confident?

    So just one more of the few possibles and we're 2nd. Fuck! Nobody predicted this level of success, or did they?

    As much as I dislike Golf, shouldn't BBC One be showing it live instead of interviewing Adam Peaty again?
