View Full Version : olympics anyone???
Can't find an olympics thread - surely there is one - please direct me!! :confused:
i have not seen one. maybe there are too many issues surrounding these olympics.
I was watching the womens water polo game today. great watching! It was 7 all when it finished, does this mean that both teams go through to the next round?
There's isn't a thread I don't think!!
It's been exciting to watch! I get so unbelievably patriotic when the Olys are on! I could watch it ALL day even random events which I don't understand/care about ordinarily if there are some aussies in it!
Just watched the 100m swim - with Eamon coming an incredibly close second - he seemed so dissapointed and said, he just wasn't good enough on the day - They work so hard to get there and put so much pressure on themselves - I hope they can relise how proud all aussies are of them whether they make a final or not! It's such an amazing feat to even be in the olympics!! As a total unco I'm so impressed by all of them!
I get quite emotional through the games! Even the McDonalds ad for the games makes me a little weepy!!:laughing:
There is a 'shame on China for not letting the little girl who sang show her face because they thought she was ugly' thread and there is my 'Am I the only one who isn't watching the Olympics' thread.
Apart from that I haven't seen any. :no:
quaver is right, there are way too many issues around this Olympics.
i just saw Eamon too. Great race though he did look disappointed.
I am still watching though i dont feel as excited as i usually do watching. I was going to start a thread but i was a bit afraid i might get jumped on.
These athletes are doing amazing things! They have worked so hard to get where they are and they deserve the credit anyway. I feel incredibly un fit!
I loved sydney games. My dh and i have an aim to save to go to London 2012! I would love to go again.
jjb- i do the same.
there are way too many issues around this Olympics.
I agree that China has stuffed up a fair bit but I just wanted to chat about our amazing olympians!! Like those amazing gymnastics girls - so young and so much pressure - a 6th place is awesome! Must say Michael Phelps is a machine - WOW! and that French Bernard bloke he's HUGE!!!!
Oh and the girls relay this arvo - I was on the edge of my seat screaming!!
No matter what China does I still love watching the athletes go for Gold! How corny!!:p
the girls relay was awsome. Their reaction was fantastic! great watching.
i was also amazed with the gymnastics last night. The individual men on the bars were great. THey are soooo built on top. Some big stacks though.
i am reminded of roy ang HG when i watch the gynastics though:laughing: they were great!
The ad that makes me cry is the qantas ad with Leisel Jones - the one where they olympians carry the aussie spirit with them to beijing. lol i tear up!!!
and i tear up whenever we win gold and i hear the national anthem!
Anyone see Leisel Jones and Libby Trickett swim today? Leisel looked gutted (or maybe just breathless!)
I think Libby Trickett is the most amazing example of sportsmanship ever.
Oh and the girls relay - amazing! Can't wait to watch Kylie Palmer in the 800m free tomorrow...
i did not get to see anything today:no: Ds had a bad teething day so he did not have a morning or afternoon sleep. so altogether today was a writeoff.
I love libby tricket. she seems very real.
opps forgot... did anyone see what happend in the womens water polo today?
Defiintely! The interview asked her after she won silver "What happened to Libby Trickett?!"
and she was like..."I'm human?"
Yep Aussies beat the Netherlands 10-9 (or maybe it was 10-8?) Not 100% sure of the score, but we won and definitely thru to 1/4 finals
How awsome is the rowing!!!!!! I am loving tonight:smiliedance:
