ive been watching gymnastics since it started and now its finished, for the women: USA (Carly Patterson) in first place, Russia (Svetlana Khorkina) in second and China in third.

Svetlana should have taken the gold but Carly beat her by like 0.02 something...Svetlana is the queen of gymnastics!!

ive also been watching the swimming and SOUTH AFRICA won the relay finals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! got gold!!!!!!!!!!!!!! no one could believe it!!!!! we were all so emotional lol...and we've won another silver aswell... and in rowing we've done pretty well too.

we just beat germany in the womens hockey too...

You all should be very proud of your athelets. They have represented your countries with dignity and in most cases humbleness. Good luck to all the nations of the world.

Exactly, Thorpe is a true legend at swimming and at the next olympics he will get the trifecta, the 100m, 200m and 400m freestyle gold medals! Hes the only man in history to win medals in all three freestyle sprint events!!! thumbsup.gif

The aussies already have 27 medals, 11 gold, 6 silver and 10 bronze!!! What a superb effort and we still have a week to go!!!

Every country ive watched so far, every athlete, has given their best and done such a great job that they all deserve our respect and a giant round of applause!!!

Iraq is into the semis after beating australia disgust.gif in the quaters and I hoipe they can go all the way and win the gold. They trully deserve it!!!

Can the aussies finish third on the medal tally for thr first time or will we hang onto fourth spot like last olympics, only time will tell!!!

AUSSIE! AUSSIE! AUSSIE! Oi! Oi! Oi!

What a damn joke this US Olympic basketball team is...Bunch of bling-bling gangsta pansies...

lmao i know right! their prob is that they have always played against each other and not with each other...rawr...it was doomed to fail ever since they thought up the idea for a NBA olympics basketball team. it might have gone better if they had trained them more as a team before the olympics....but sadly not crying.gif

i know double posting..bad bad bad but this has nothing to do w/ the basketball lol

i was just wondering...you probally wont have an answer...but why is the south african relay swim team all white? dont ya think they could have mixed it up a little to show that south africa is back on the right track?... i know they have some black south africans competing in other games....its just i thought apartheid was over crying.gifcrying.gif but they did swim an amazing relay race lol

US is the dominant country. I wish all of the countries were getting so many gold medals like China and the US.

Anti_girl17,

As well as being the worst reason to put someone into the team it is also racist to do so. Those guys are on that team because they are the best, not because of their skin colour. Maybe, just maybe they didn't have a black swimmer who was good enough to make the relay team ?.

I bet that never even crossed your mind, did it ?.

People should be chosen for their ability to get the job done not because of their race.

oh it has...they are amazing swimmers really. but most of the white south africans were a lot more privliged then the black south africans...and i gotta hunch it takes quiet a bit of money to hire a pro olympic swimming coach. cuz swimming is a huge huge part of the summer olympics. but w/e it doesnt matter...what matters is apartheid oovverrr grin2.gifthumbsup.gif
