The "Olympic Games" thread --- ///

talk about the Olympic Games in general (not only tennis) in here...

_________________________

I just watched the 1st Olympic event: women's soccer
Germany absolutely dismantled China who are no mugs in women's soccer by a score of 8-0.

maybe the German team can again beat everybody and the USA to get Olympic gold after they won the World Championship last year

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: The "Olympic Games" thread

I am looking forward to the mens 100m, I dont think any of the British guys will get a medal, I fancy Powell of Jamaica or Maurice Greene (USA) to take the gold.

Nearly all my Vcash went on women, drinking and gambling...the rest of it I just squandered !

Re: The "Olympic Games" thread

yeah, I followed a few meetings and resulst and I think these two are by far the biggest favorites...

somehow 100m is cool and really gets a lot of attention, although the duration of this final is just about 10 seconds

Re: The "Olympic Games" thread

Yeah its crazy training four years for something over in ten seconds, whats crazier is if you get one false start then your out, so could be four years training to then not run the race lol

wow..I had no idea you only got one false start and you're out. That's kinda harsh. Can you imagine training for 4 years only to be disqualified for something so trivial like that. I guess if they've trained for 4 years, they shouldn't have a problem holding back..

yes, Argentina badly needs a GOLD this Olympics. I saw the 1st half of the Argentina vs Serbia & Montenegro football game on TV and the German commentator said that Argentina didn't win a gold medal at Olympic games since 1952. That's a long time.

So they would need it badly some time and they have a good football team and they are among the favorites.

yeah, this new rule to allow no false starts at all is really very rigid... maybe the officials have been just too pissed off how things in many races went when often three or four different people made false starts and this can be quite annoying because the other sprinters have to restart, go in their starting blocks and concentrate again every time

Re: The "Olympic Games" thread

I am looking forward very much to my big showdown with Ian Thorpe, He is without question my most deadly rival and my thoughts now are purely on the gold.
