In its second game of pool play, Team USA will take on another tough opponent in No. 3 world-ranked Australia.

These two teams last met in the 2016 Women’s Hockey Champions Trophy. With a bronze medal at stake, the U.S. took Australia down to the wire in a 2-2 tie at the end of regulation. Team USA pulled off a victory in the shootout. Goalkeeper Jackie Briggs came up with huge stops, allowing Melissa Gonzalez to seal the win with her goal.


No Way...

Aussie team called..

"Hockeyroos"

Us women up 1-0 vs Australia field hockey at halftime.

I don't get the channel they are broadcasting full picture,so I have to squint at the 6 sports they are picture in picturing simultaneously on channel 205..makes it difficult to watch but still a great game.

ahhh


Thank You


gawd I love this..

btw if people havn't watched field hockey before.. Let's just say I would be scared to play. I've seen some injuries. Like people getting hit in the head or even just the knees with those wooden... "clubs?" they're pretty solid haha.

watching girls run head first into battle can change your perspective on life..

Michelle is like half pitbull though.

United states wins 2-1, what a fantastic performance by the U.S. Goalkeeper.

Australia ate alot of penalties, I think it played a huge part in Their loss.

Great game!

YES!!!



Much appreciated.



Sorry to all the "ROCKs" (inside joke) It's my new name for Aussie girls though. Makes even more sense for a field hockey team called the Hockeyroos.. That's just too perfect.. "Rarely Observed Crazy Kangaroos"

hahaha

I run the stream through my computer. Don't want to miss a second of eventing

Three-day is what I used to do when I competed....NOTHING even remotely as advanced at this. I was A-level at best....these people are Olympians.

My old horse would have Cantered, then trot, then walked to the first jump, stopped, looked back at me and said, "you want me to do what now?"

lol

The U.S Men's Gymnastics team need to be tested, for an overdose of testosterone. The way they are whooping and pulling their own. Right in front of the Chinese team, I should add.

If nothing else, Rio2016 will always be remembered as the 'quiet games'.

Stadia and events with very very poor attendance.

Any updates?

I'm stuck on basketball and field hockey but I can't watch unless I'm not at my house lol.

So excited for women's all around gymnastics tonight!!! They are going to annihilate the competition!!

Also stoked that Lily King won gold in the 100M breaststroke last night, beating Russian Yulia Efimova! Love her for not being afraid to speak her mind and calling Yulia out for prior doping.

The United States women’s field hockey team continued its emergence as a potential darling of the Rio Olympics on Wednesday afternoon with a resounding 6-1 win over Japan.

The Americans are currently on a tear through pool play that is as unlikely as it is impressive. They entered these Games ranked No. 5 in the world, but pulled off upsets over No. 2 Argentina and No. 3 Australia to emerge as medal contenders this week.

The only question was whether the U.S. team would overtake the British, who are also 3-0 in pool play, and move into first place in the Pool B standings. After Japan scored its first goal to draw to within 4-1, American Katie Bam completed her hat trick with a goal for the highlight reel. Once teammate Kathleen Sharkey added another insurance goal two minutes later, the Americans had the five-goal difference they needed to ascend to the top spot.

The United States is slated to face Great Britain in a battle of unbeatens Saturday afternoon in Rio.

As of today, my cousin is in third place overall going into the preliminary races.

She'll be back under sail today so we are hoping she can improve or hold her standing

Nice


USA Women's Field Hockey plays Great Britain on Saturday. If I'm not mistaken they are both undefeated. And I think they are both already moving into the quarter finals.

My facebook is becoming filled with yearbook pictures from our highschool team. Michelle Kasold jersey number 1. Haha. Actually the highschool is in the same town as UNC. 5 of the other players played Field hockey at UNC. It's basically a team of my hometown.

Nostalgia is hitting hard.

USA vs India wins 3-0 in 4th match

I'm feeling a gold. Hehe.

U.S. Women's soccer team just got knocked out in penalty shoot out vs Sweden.

Hope Solo tried a stall tactic,before the final penalty..it didn't work, and as a Long time fan ,i found it in poor taste and bad sportsmanship.

The Swedish goalkeeper on the other hand has definitely earned my new found respect..

Also interesting to note, is just prior to the shoot out all the Swedish players were encouraging there goalkeeper and trying to psyche her up...cut scene to hope solo standing alone off to the side with No team encouragement...

Kind of an inside glimpse into the inner social dynamic of this years team..

The basketball competition..

Wow what a joke,

The us national team is so overpowered ,men's and women's team both..

It's like watching the Harlem globetrotters play your local Y.M.C.A. League champions.


The Aussies where dominating the US for the majority of the game the other night. I mean, they obviously got us by 10 points in the end, but still, we put up a good fight and I think proved the US can be beaten.

Hopefully its a Aussies vs US gold metal match in the Basketball, then I guess we'll see what happens...
