XXXI. Summer Olympic Games, Rio de Janeiro - Day 2, 7th August, 2016

The rowing events must be cursed. Yesterday the whole event was postponed due to bad weather. It was so windy in the bay and the water was waving so hard that the repechages and qualifyings could not get started. So the Beđik-Vasić and the Šljukić-Marjanović duos will have to perform on Monday afternoon CET.

At the tennis fields Viktor Troicki was defeated by Andy Murray at the men’s singles. The game finished with 0:2 for the Englishman (3:6, 2:6), the Olympic Games have ended for Troicki.

At swimming, Velimir Stjepanović could get to the qualifying of the men’s 200 m freestyle, but he finished 13th, he could not make it to the final.

One more thing that was missed out from yesterday’s report, cyclist Ivan Stević couldn’t finish the race yesterday. There’s no info about why he had to give it up.
