    So, not a lot of info online about this item. I picked this up and it is surprisingly decent. The main programme would be the actual highlights including the name-brand sports but they also mentioned the &quot scrubby&quot ones like shooting, archery, swords, etc. This section is hosted by Mary Carillo, not sure if she would be the best host but that's what NBC decided on, I guess. On to the bonus features. It has several track and field events, all finals, both of Usain Bolt's wins, and the US 1-2-3 finishes as well. There are about 6 swimming events I think, it does not have all of Phelps' because they are all on the Phelps DVD, but this has the 100 relay that the US barely won, and a couple women's. They also have all of Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin's all around performances and also both of the girls' beam final. I also noticed that they have the gold medal women's beach vollyball match, it is supposed to be the entire match but I did not even watch it, maybe only the first minute. And of course, the torch lighting ceremony is included in the bonus features. The only gripe I have is that it is full screen and not HD, but it will do. It's a decent memento for anyone who did not DVR the events.
