Last night, I did what many people end up doing late at night when the Olympics are on: I found myself watching a sport that I didn't even know existed. It was called the men's canoe doubles, and it looked ridiculously hard. Which got me thinking -- what is the hardest event at this year's Summer Games?
Elma native Eric Kaminski is an Olympic medal winner. He and teammates Brady Ellison and Jacob Wukie settled for silver when Italy's Michele Frangilli was perfect on the final shot of the match to claim the gold for the Italians by just one point.

Did you see the big mistake that was made at the Olympics on Wednesday?? Just as the North Korean women's soccer team was preparing to take the field....the Olympic committee displayed the wrong flag next to the picture of a North Korean Player. The flag displayed….a South Korean flag. Ouch!! Because of the flub, the North Korean team did not come out onto the field for almost 1 hour. Check out the report from the BBC…..
