Over the past 24 hours, Team USA basketball took over the top spot as the most discussed Olympic topic, spurred on by their dominating win over Germany. Women’s gymnastics continued to be a popular topic, mainly due to displeasure with the tiebreaker procedure that resulted in American Nastia Liukin winning the Silver Medal in the uneven bars final with China’s He Kexin winning Gold. Now that his quest for 8 Gold Medals is complete, Michael Phelps was not as highly discussed, although still took the third spot. Rounding out the Top 5 were the medal count, specifically the “race” between the U.S. and China, and disapproval of IOC and BOCOG canceling their joint press conference with foreign and local media two days in a row after increasingly tense briefings between IOC and BOCOG officials and foreign reporters.
