Olympic Results

After one day of events, I think I've found the best place to find results online.

First, I tried NBC Olympics and was disappointed to not be able to easily find the results from the mens gymnastics qualifying. In fact, the only thing I was able to find was the summary of the team scoring and no details on qualifying for the all around or the event finals.

I went searching and found what appears to be the official results site which is great. It allows you to drill in by sport and see all the details. I even found that it has play by play for beach volleyball!

Now, if you are stuck watching the Olympics on the NBC family of networks, the NBC site is pretty good, although other than the main network the schedule for the other channels is pretty general so it is hard to tell when specifically an event will be.

Enjoy the games!
Comments:

Even in the official site does not seem to allow for a quick check of results. Check [1], the badminton results; you need to drill on each game to find out how it went.

That said, the number of badminton videos available is _VERY_ good. And the quality of the recording (raw quality, angles, replays) is all very good.

Yeah, I'm trying to get the hang of the official results site. Lots of stuff there, just not the easiest to navigate. And I agree, the video they show is very good quality. Just no video of the mainstream stuff live or before it is shown on TV which means we wait or try to find alternatives.

On the subject of Badminton; I was surprised to find so many games on live streaming on NBCOlympics.com! The other day I counted no less than 5.

In general I agree that NBCOlympics.com sucks. I can't believe how disorganized the content is on the site.
