NBC:

Oh, what a heartbreaking tragedy for Athlete X, who fought so hard but lost and had to settle for silver. She'll be kicking herself for that one. Let's watch a recap of all the mistakes she made. And here, have about five minutes of footage of her tears. What an utterly shattering loss. Terrible, just terrible.


BBC:

What a phenomenal job from Athlete X! She had a few moments of difficulty there, but she held on and gave it her all and gave us such a great finish. Just really stunning work from X here, and an impressive sixth place. Well done, Athlete X!


Snarkily summarized from a combination of swimming, diving, and gymnastics commentary. But yeah. Pretty much the general pattern overall.
