TRACK & FIELD

Ato Boldon: “If you are a fan of the 4×100, you just saw the greatest race in history, as both teams (Jamaica and the United States) have just run the fastest times ever in the history of this event.”
Lewis Johnson interviewing Bolt: “To win the gold medals in the 100, 200 and 4×100, what does it say about you?
Usain Bolt: “This is why I came here, to be a legend.”
Men’s 500 meters: Britain’s Mo Farah wins the 5,000 meters. He previously took the gold in the 10,000 meters
Tom Hammond: “The fans of Great Britain hail Mo Farah as one of the greatest British distance runners of all time.”
Ato Boldon: “The United States team is putting on a mile relay clinic. It just happens to be in the Olympic Finals.”
Ato Boldon: “Oh say can you see, the United States women have completely dominated the relays.”
Platform: USA’s David Boudia ended USA’s gold medal drought.
Ted Robinson: “The first U.S. diver to win gold since Greg Louganis (1988).”
Bob Costas: “So, as was the case in Beijing, the men’s platform proves to be both the most exciting and competitive of the diving events, with Qiu Bo expected to win and the entire aquatic center pulling for Tom Daley. It turns out its American David Boudia who emerges with the gold. Ted mentioned Greg Louganis; well it was he, who two years ago told Boudia, ‘don’t be afraid to leave the pack behind.’ That turned out to be winning advice.”
Women’s Basketball: USA 86, France 50. Team USA has won five straight gold medals.
Bob Fitzgerald: “The last loss for the United States came against the Unified Team, the former Soviet Union, in the ’92 Olympics. They won the bronze against Cuba, and that began a 40-game winning streak in the Olympics, an unprecedented four straight gold medals, the best in any women’s sport and the drive for five continuing tonight.”
Bob Fitzgerald: “And for five consecutive Olympic games, you can stamp the gold medal MADE IN THE USA for the women of the United States.”
