 That sort of trouble was really surprising. They were so
slow to put up times and as you say, often only bothered
to put up times for the winner or perhaps the following
two as well.
They really got a bit sloppy at times. They didn't even
tell viewers who had qualified for the
individual gymnastics event finals despite gymnastics
being their signature event.
