Irish sailor is leading her third race and she won the first two! Of course because sailing is so dull and impossible to film we're not getting any pictures. :drama:

Thoughts?

A nice thought in the spirit of the games, but the Chinese swimmer is swimming in the shadows of her countries past. This is the legacy that China has left it's competitors. They can cry foul all they want, but they have only themselves to blame.

I feel the same way about the Americans and track and field. Their long history of dopers and their continued association with dopers makes me automatically assume the worst and think these athletes are using performance enhancing drugs. If it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck then it must be.

It's unfortunate, but once suspicion is cast, you are automatically assumed guilty until proven innocent.

Maybe we should trade them some of our doped up horses for their swimmers. :D

Nah, she'll mess up the rest of her races and finish FORTH or something. :lol:
