‘Redeem Team’ silences critics, critics of gymnastic age controversy getting louder

Over the weekend the most popular Olympic topic was the U.S. men’s basketball team’s Gold Medal win over Spain. Commentary on the gymnastics age controversy also increased with many wondering why the IOC waited so long to investigate. Michael Phelps continued to be a popular topic, especially with news of a rumored romance with Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice. News that Cuban taekwondo athlete Angel Valodia Matos may be banned for life from the sport was also a popular topic. Matos kicked a referee in the face following a match in which he was disqualified for exceeding the allowed injury time. MSNBC commentator Tiki Barber sparked discussion several days after accidentally saying an expletive when attempting to say “medal count” during in Olympics broadcast.
