    Once the event starts, the scores will be updated as they come in. Once the first score is posted about 8:30 pm CST, you can visit the following page for live results. If you click on that and leave the page open, it will auto refresh every 15 seconds, so you'll have the scores right after they're entered. That link can be found here:

    In order to watch the final you do have to download Microsoft Silverlight. If you plan on watching the final Wednesday night, I would recommend you download the program before so you can start watching right away and not miss anything. To do that, just watch ANY of the videos on the www.nbcolympics.com website. The download will start when you click on any of the videos.


    Representing the USA will be three time Olympic medalist, Kim Rhode -- Come cheer on the USA!

    LOL...Usually right after the final is over - 3:30ish. The Olympics are a big deal to me. I know/see what people go through to get there. The Olympics aren't every four years, they're everyday. 1460 of them. When there are people out there who work for 1460 days, and all that comes down to ONE day, ONE event, ONE shot...I feel that someone out there should stand behind them and support them. Recognize everything they've done for the last 4 years...And if that means staying up a few hours later and operating on a little less sleep, that's a tiny price to pay in comparison to the price they've paid. Do they know I'm sitting at home watching and cheering them on? No. Does it help them break an extra target? No. But its all part of the Olympic Spirit and I just try to support it and spread it. When a grown man falls to the ground and is reduced so humbly to wailing tears, that outpour of emotion cannot go unnoticed.
