Olympics

Bit of a sticky subject, we hesitated to blog on the olympics due to our opposition to what China is doing in Tibet but the actual sporting achievements we’ve seen compelled us to at least comment.

Highlights:

Usain Bolt – awesome, and a funny guy too. Good to see a sprinter not taking themselves too seriously

Michael Phelps – a freak of nature, if swimming didn’t exist he’d be in a circus. What an achievement though!

Jamaica – how can such a small place have such a fast population?

Medal tables – just how are they calculated? If it is on number of golds, china are winning, however the USA calculates it on total medals which means they’re winning, the Aussies calculate it on gold medals per population so they’re winning and so on. We thought the games weren’t political??

Modern Pentathlon – weird
