Pulled a muscle. Happens all the time in track. You know you aren't winning if you have a leg injury so don't get...more injured.

The clip they show doesnt warrant a red card. The american player fell over, canadian tried to avoid while paying attention to where the ball was. While trying to avoid falling, or hitting the american who fell they hit the players hand/head. Not card worthy. If the canadian player stopped, looked down at where the hand/head was and then stomped it would be a red card. Basically it looks accidental even if it might of been on purpose

Leave it at that, because the team had a tonne of respect up until they started whining. Everybody is proud of the work and effort they displayed on the field. Let that be the lasting memory of a fantastic game.

File a protest, but don't lower yourselves to whining. I'm disappointed - just my two bits.
They are human and they reacted like any other competitive athlete playing to get into the gold medal game in pretty much any other sport for any other country.

What a joke of an article

Quote:
Through 11 days of the Olympics, China leads the United States in the official IOC medal count. But in Fourth-Place Medal's "real" medal count, a tally that ignores judged activities masquerading as sports, Team USA has a commanding lead over its Asian counterparts.

[Related: Olympic medals' monetary value may shock you]

Our real medal count ignores Olympic disciplines like gymnastics and diving and instead focuses on sports where winners are determined on the field of play. When Usain Bolt or Michael Phelps wins a race, the result is objective and undeniable. Gabby Douglas winning the women's all-around was one of the most memorable moments of the first week. But why did she win a gold over Victoria Komova? Because some judges said she was 0.259 better? It wouldn't be so insulting if we weren't the rubes who accept it like it's real. Gymnastics wins aren't victories, they're subjective decisions based on objective-sounding rules.

So factor all of that out when talking about medal counts. China isn't ahead, the United States is. When you factor out all the judging nonsense in gymnastics, diving, trampoline and judo, Team USA is the decisive leader.


The bulk of the difference comes from diving and a trampoline. Chinese divers won five golds and six overall medals in London (compared to zero and three for Americans) and four overall medals in trampoline (Americans earned a goose egg).



We've heard the arguments: Tennis has chair umpires and basketball has referees. A bunch of judges peer at the target after every arching round to see whether an arrow is on or over the line. Every sport on the Olympic slate has some judge or official making decisions that can affect the final outcome. But except in very rare occasions -- like a gold-medal basketball game in Munich -- they don't pick the winner. Like rubes, we mindlessly accept that Jordyn Weiber was somehow determined to be 0.232 worse than Douglas in the gymnastics all-around qualification. When diving judges give a 9.0 instead of an 8.5, it's treated like Missy Franklin touching the wall first.

No more! The real medal count cuts through the nonsense and politics. Winning a competition on the field of play is the only way to get to our medal stand.
United States leads China in

Can't see what happened in the first incident. Did he get sacked in the nuts? Almost looked like a dive though.
Second one was just Looked like he was actually trying to go for the nuts.
