No coverage here in Aus with their women playing Soccer and Baskeball at the moment.

Thought the Channel 7 app would have more options.
You're using 7+?

If the skaters at the Olympics aren’t the same skaters you see at X games then Olympic competition is substandard. I’m not following the Olympics.
The skaters you see at the X Games are the best contest skaters. Are they the best skaters in the world? That's subjective.

Good effort from Aus. Should make the quarters according to Greg Clarke. Is he on crack? 3 pools.
