Can the Olympics be all the time?

Today was the last full day of competition, and what a way to go out in style. We started out with the huge news that Mexico beat Brazil in soccer and were reminded of the dangers of Racewalking.

Usain Bolt secured Jamaica a relay world record and the US ladies continued to tear up the track.

The most exciting competition of the night came on the track and in the pool with Mo Farah and the Men's Diving Competition.

All in all? A great way to end a fantastic Summer Games.

Today didn't get off to a great start, as the nation now mourns the death of Rafalca's Olympic dream in dressage. But then things took a turn for the inspirational (as well as iconic) after Chinese hurdler Liu Xiang finished his race on one leg after injuring his achilles on the first hurdle.

Later on, Russian high jumper Ivan Ukhov won gold in his event after somehow losing his jersey, forcing him to compete in a t-shirt. Shortly after, we saw some amazing post-win celebrations from German thrower Robert Harting and Australian hurdler Sally Pearson.

The day closed out with Leo Manzano becoming the first American to medal in the 1500 meter race since Jim Ryun in 1968. An uplifting day to say the least.

Today was not too shabby. Not too shabby indeed.

Cyprus won their first medal ever in sailing, while Beth Tweddle won another first for Team GB. Algeria done goofed while Team USA won a super crazy game of soccer to qualify for gold.

Good stuff, 'Lympics. Good stuff.

In one of the craziest soccer games we've ever seen, Team U.S.A. is heading to the gold medal match against Japan while Canada will compete against France for the bronze.

After 123 minutes of tackles, spills, and aggressiveness from both sides, the Americans scored their fourth and final goal in overtime.

The final score was 4-3. If anyone needs us, we'll be collapsed from cheering exhaustion in the back.

Today just reminded us how out of shape we are.

Usain Bolt continued to be the fastest man in the world, in an event where everyone knew who would win but watched anyways because the 100 meter is the MOST EXCITING RACE EVER.

Venus and Serena locked down over a decade of Olympic domination as another runner ran ridiculously fast and far. Not to mention more tennis awesomeness.

All these non-surprises still made for an awesome day of Olympics. If anyone needs us we'll be sobbing into our jars of Ranch Dip wishing we could run as fast as the slowest Olympian.

Today got off to a lovely start!

Team GB made the home crowd very happy by winning five medals in five minutes in three different events. In the Gymnastics arena Gabby Douglas won women's all-around gold, solidifying Team U.S.A's grip on Women's Gymnastics.

We learned about terrible parents and shady shenanigans, but everything went golden again as Phelps won his first 2012 gold medal.

All in all? Plenty of good news out of today, definitely enough to merit the charming-as-hell reaction gif of the day.
