The corporation has received hundreds of complaints accusing interviewers of being negative and insensitive instead of supporting the clearly disappointed competitors.
Helen Jenkins, who finished fifth in today's grueling triathlon with the help of teammates Lucy Hall and Vicky Holland, was told "bad luck" in her post-race interview, which angered many Twitter users.
Sharron Davies also sparked criticism for 'commiserating' with Rebecca Adlington and asking if she was disappointed to have won a bronze medal in the 800m race.
Sports editor David Bond attracted 162 complaints for his interview with Mark Cavendish, who finished 29th in the men's road race last Saturday (July 28).
He asked Cavendish after the 250km race: "Was Tour de France tiredness a factor?"
The cyclist replied: "Stop asking stupid questions. Do you know about cycling?"
The BBC defended Bond, saying: "We believe the report was balanced as it reflected the enormous recent success of the British cycling team and, as such, the sense of disappointment at the lack of a medal.
"There was no intention to be discourteous to Mark Cavendish after the race. David asked what we believe was a reasonable question and a decision was taken to broadcast Mark Cavendish's response so that the audience could make their own judgement."
Cycling reporter Jill Douglas has also come under fire for an interview with Victoria Pendleton after she and partner Jess Varnish were disqualified from a race.
Clare Balding, meanwhile, has been widely praised for her coverage of the Olympics, particularly for her interview with the excited father of 100m butterfly winner Chad Le Clos.
Digital Spy forum member Tree-Of-Life wrote on the 'I really like Clare Balding' thread: "I have enjoyed her on TV in the past and loving her even more at the Olympics. She's funny, informed, smart and interested and seems like a lovely, friendly lady.
"Hope we see even more of her on TV during and long after the Olympics."
