#1 Andy Murray: The battle continued today from Wimbledon between Roger Federer and Murray with Murray coming out on top to win Olympic GOLD for #TeamGB.
#2 Ben Ainslie: Another GOLD medal won for GB today in Men’s sailing for the finn class by Ainslie. This is his fourth GOLD, making him the most decorated sailor in Olympic history,(Although we’re afraid he still doesn’t have anything on Michael Phelps.)
#3 Roger Federer: To many people, watching Federer lose to Andy Murray today was quite the disappointment. From gloomy tweets proclaiming their everlasting love and devotion to the Swiss athlete to justifying his loss by saying he was letting Murray win or something, no one seemed capable of admitting that Roger just wasn’t on his A-game today.
#4 LiberalTshirts: Some truly creative ideas were out there in the Twittersphere today. We wonder why more people don’t become T-shirt designers. Our faves: “You pay taxes so I don’t have to!” “You paid for this shirt!” “Approved by 4 out of 5 Totalitarian Dictators.” “Nancy Pelosi is beautiful.” and “I ❤ United States of Kenya.” We’re assuming almost every single one of these was thought of by a Republican.
#5 Tiki Gelana: This Ethiopian set a new Olympic record today in the women’s marathon with a time of 2:23:07! If only we too could run at superhuman speed…
