I wouldn't be so sure about that. USO, Wimbledon and WTF would make a strong case. He just needs to win them .

Absolutely no chance of him winning it this year.

Because medals won define whether a country is great or not...

Good Olympics for GB, even though in team sports a k a the World Championships inside the OG, they were a walking bye. Brits need better perfomances in those sports if they want to be considered a powerhouse.

And at last, Russia gets one of the big medals, in volley and against Brazil no less. I celebrated the MP twice as it was repeated .
The better team won, it doesn´t happen too often

Brazil doesn't play like Spain, even less so play like Italy. No way Brazil can win if they don't have the required flair. They won't graft. Either they'll have a talented team or they will fail.

Handball, volleyball and basketball aren't big sports here. I'd like them to be, the latter especially. All of them had excellent crowds and atmospheres so chances are more kids here are going to want to take part.

Thumbs down Re: Olympic Games 2012 London Thread (All other sports besides tennis)

I have to say, this french handball team is very shady. They all have such chiselled physiques compared to the other teams... It's like you wonder whether they really practise the same sport!

I think it's sad that there is a cloud of suspicion over the winners.

Re: Olympic Games 2012 London Thread (All other sports besides tennis)

This closing ceremony was pretty good with Imagine, Wish you were here and Walrus with Brand. Then it turned to any generic 2012 party with Taio Cruz and nonsense.

Paradorn Srichaphan
Kei Nishikori, Donald Young, Somdev Devvarman, Dustin Brown, Steve Johnson, Yannick Maden
Robert Farah, Clement Reix, Alexander Dolgopolov, Nathan Thompson

You are unbelievable, when I think you can't get better with the whining, then you pull out a gold medal performance like this.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
