The swimming.. well yeah we are always expected to go well there but we had a golden era. A lot of those swimmers have retired now or ending their career and Steph Rice was never really right for these Games. James Magnussen was the big one that was supposed to be our swimming hero. His swim in the relay was disappointing. We missed a medal when anticipating probable gold. He came back and swam well for the individual 100m and missed by a fingernail. I'm not gonna think of that as a failure
Good for you!
Edit: we'll see Andreea, we'll see. I doubt poor Finns will get a medal in javelin this time.
