Better than nice - simply awesome when you consider the swimmers he defeated, and what a small contingent of swimmers we have compared to the bigger countries. It's really first class stuff!

Re: Re:


Unfortunately I didn't get to see the opening ceremony as I was catching the train back from Manchester, but most of my friends and family back home marveled at it. I must admit that I like the idea of it.

Kaunisto: I'm sure Johnny Rotten is indifferent towards the extravagance, he'd be a hypocrite to complain given the money he would have made on butter commercials.

Re: Olympics


Bad luck for us in sailing and no surprises in other sports.

SA is doing well and we're all very excited - two Golds in swimming, and a third Gold today for our rowing guys. Good stuff!

Re: Olympics


Sailing is starting to look better, our folks may well make top 10 in 4-5 events. Just wish one of them would get medal.

Re: Olympics


Zero. Infact I think our best is still 8th.
Not that there's yet been any of our real hopes.
But it'll be minor miracle if we get a gold and/or three medals in total.

The British media portrayed it as a hard fought silver for the Brits. There were no hard feelings, in fact the South Africans were complimented. Then again the media (and the attention seeking PM of ours) have been rather excited about our gold medal exploits. I watched the team pursuit in the velodrome yesterday and it was great to see us claim gold by destroying the Aussies.

I've seen Oscar Pistorius in the 800m. Phenomenal!
