Eek. It's a shame after working so hard.
Thank God she didn't hurt herself!

So sorry for the Italian girls: they were doing so much better doing other competitions!
Maybe they're missing the support!

And I'm so sorry for the swimmer of Italian team... Anyway, they're so cute!!!

Actually, I'm not going to complain too much about our girls. They are currently in silver medal position, which is certainly not shabby. I mean, hell, the Romanians are always excellent, and they are tough to beat. This stuff is so incredibly difficult, and the pressure is so awful, I'm amazed at what they're able to do. It's unfortunate that they make mistakes, but it's no surprise. They're human.

So, again congrats to Ian Thorpe taking out the 200m freestyle- what a line up there was in that race- van den hootenden and that new american kid and hackett, but Thorpe prooved that he is undoubtably one of the best swimmers of the modern era- I got up at 2.30am in the morning to watch this race and it was well worth it......


oh and also a congrats to the Aussie breastrokers, especially to Brooke Hanson who got second in the 100m breaststroke, at 26 she has made an amazing comeback- she missed out on Sydney and was almost about to retire, but didnt and with a lot of hard work she trained hard and four years later won the silver

I heard China got straight zeros in the Men's Synchro Diving competition in which Greece won gold...but I can't find anything in any news stories. Anybody know how that happened (how it's even possible)??

perhaps when they make american football an olympic sport




I've been enjoying the olympics very much
there's no way the netherlands will do as well as 4 years ago, but the Holland House is again the main place to party during the olympics

very proud of what our swimmers have accomplished so far
and I have good hopes for our hockey teams, judo, rowing and Van Moorsel to revenge herself for her fall during the women cycling


I can't say Thorpe looks like someone I'd want to have a beer with,
but he should indeed been given credit
he has definitely established himself as the best swimmer of the last decade and there has been some great competition for that title

I'm pleased that the U.S. men gymnasts got the team silver. It was the first medal for our men since 1984.

I hope some time soon they'll actually start to play hockey
because that match today was as poor as the first match against india

it's a small wonder they won both

gee pitty about that 4x200ms mens free final- what a shitter!!!! The Aussies just missed out!!! and for anyone not aware Ian Thorpe is now equal first as one of our greatest Olympians of all time- his medal tally is equal to that of both Dawn Fraser and Susie O'Neal, who are both swimmers and seeing as though he is already talking about Beijng, he is certain to go down as being our greatest Olympian, if not athlete of all time. I got to give him credit though, that at only 21 he is incredibly mature....

and my other fave sport to watch has been the womens beach volleyball- the two Aussie teams are doing well and it almost makes me want to take up this sport over summer
