Yeah I noticed that when it was live warlord. It was a wave, but a very dodgy motion'd wave, especially coming from some important German official.
So I just heard that NBC but away from the opening ceremony to an interview with Michael Phelps, they cut away from a tribute to the July bombing terrorist attack victims, what the hell NBC?! If UK did that with 9/11, people would be getting fired.

That's bullshit.The clock never started! So Heidemann had more than one second to land the winning touch. At the very least, whether she landed it in time was highly in doubt. The match should have continued into another round, but instead Shin was declared the loser. So South Korea's coach went to the judges.
And Shin A Lam, now in tears, refused to live the piste (the platform that they fence on). In fencing, leaving the piste means that you have officially accepted the judges' ruling. And seeing as the clock didn't start, and she should still have a shot at gold, she sat down. It's the filibuster of fencing.
judges have always been bullshit in these competitions.
I dislike games that require judging at the Olympics, its such a grey area and one day you could get more points, another less for pretty much the same action.
I prefer definitive things, such as running, where, apart from the start, whoever crosses the line is winner.
