Cancellara is a time triallist.

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

I'm happy for Wawrinka. It's a big honour for an athlete and he has earned it. It's also great for our sport when any tennis player is chosen to be a flagbearer so the real tennis fans on here should be happy about this announcement and less concerned about scoring points.

I don't remember the details, but there were definitely matches in Bejing when Wawrinka "carried" Roger through the doubles.

No team player would be close to a gold medal without his teammate(s).

I remember Stan said something like "For many people, I am the Swiss who loses" back in 2005 - 2007.

¬¬? was the "arrogant" Roger who declined the ofert and said it will be better to give the chance to another swiss considering he already had the honour 2 times..

I'm very happy for Stan, he deserves the same credit as Roger to win that medal.
