agreed...that was a horrible call
similar thing happened in Men's Judo a couple of days ago...Japan/Korea match..a reversed judge's decision (all 3) left me shaking my head in disbelief (along with everyone else at the event...including the commentators)

judged sports can be so frustrating. Especially for someone like myself who doesn't watch these sports with regularity. I mean if I can spot a flaw or an inferior performance, then there's something wrong here. i guess a counter argument to that could be that i don't know enough about the fine points of the sport to understand the judging process, but that's almost my exact point. If it looks bad to me or the casual viewer, then it should look REALLY bad to the judges.

I can remember how Pleshenko got screwed in Vancouver when he was the only one who did a quad and still nailed the rest of his skate. freaking judged sports.

this is why I don't watch olympic boxing. the scoring system is ridiculous.
all the judges do is click a button and a combo is worth the same as a jab

Milos playing well. 9-9 now. He really should have won this sooner. If he could do more with his backhand he'd win this match pretty easily.

We own the lowest part of the podium.

Milo's at 19-19 now. As frustrating as it's been to see him miss opportunities to apply pressure and break Tsonga, he has stayed composed and fought off any pressure on his own serve. It may never end.

I like that Milos enjoyed the whole marathon. His mental game is much better. He just needs to work on his backhand now. Not enough weapons or options if he's not serving.
