They should slim it down by getting rid of any events that don't have a definitive result. All the events that are fastest, highest, furthest etc should be kept. Any event that requires a judge to decide the outcome should be dropped.

You're just too old to understand grandad 😂🤣
:LOL::LOL::LOL::cautious:

Well I'm still puzzled, they have two long runs which get scored accordingly, they each then have a go at some single tricks which also get marked. It looked to me like they had a best 3 score system but the scores from the single tricks could count for all 3. Lad who won was way down after the first two main runs but pulled of a few decent single tricks and won. Didn't seem fair that they just about they ignored the harder first section of the competition.

I saw one set of runs where pretty much everyone fell off at some point. I decided this was only making me even more grumpy about it being in the Olympics, if it's going to be in then be good 🙄😆, and turned over to the seniors golf. Darren Clarke's belly cheered me up, Sunningdale looks fabulous and I decided I'd made the right decision 😀.

Fair play to you for a/ sticking with it b/ caring enough to complain 👏 😂

What a morning - amazing to see Daley finally get the gold he deserves

Superb fron Peaty and Piddock
Annoyed with the BBC website continually focussing on Daley, he had a partner who also won gold and we won other medals today. Why are they just focussing on one person all the time?
