I did tell you Ginny Thrasher (Springfield) would be someone to watch. Sure enough, she’s in the shooting final.
What else have I written to preview these Games? Glad you asked …
In addition to my analysis of Olympic odds, projections and TV offerings, I have a few general overviews up at Bleacher Report …
Thrasher was mentioned in my look at teen phenoms of the Games, which includes a few players soccer fans will recognize.
I’ve given a guide of everything to watch in men’s swimming. (Not just Phelps.)
Will Usain Bolt lose? I said yes, as one of my Bold Predictions for the Games.
And if you read just one thing to get the broad overview, flip through my broad overview.
Because Samuel L. said so.
I’ve returned to Bleacher Report to help out with Rio coverage, with three pieces so far …
- Preview slideshow of the top events to watch at the track and field trials.
- When will the next generation of men’s 100m sprinters arrive?
- Top storylines to follow from now to the start of the Games.
I was also happy to see the last thing I wrote for B/R in 2012 is still valid: 10 Bridesmaids from London Who Will Medal in Rio. A quick check shows nine of the 10 are indeed in contention.
