    :smokin: :encore:

    Commentator suggests perhaps the timing is done for the benefit of tv broadcast and the audience rather than for the athletes' benefit (now where have I heard that before ;) )

    42.2 k or 26 miles 385 yards in old money :lol:

    Looking at the medal ceremony, I'm wondering what are the little plaques that they are presenting the medallists with...

    It was quite a feat for Rothlin to compete at all considering the health issues he's had. :eek: :respec:

    That song was so epic! :cool: The real Barcelona´92 song, sorry Lloyd Webber :shuffle: (shamefully I even enjoyed more Peret´s catalonian rumba for the closing ceremony than official "Friends for life" song)

    Barcelona has power! :rockstar:


    :cheer2: amazing to watch him back so great :respec:

    Sadist! :drama: :scream: It´s 1st August!

    :p

    No idea, but I read medals V design would include every medalist name, the competition they took part and their personal time or result. Quite personal.

    France take 4x100 for men. What's up with a lot of the French guys being called Teddy and Jimmy lately? :lol:

    I can't believe Ukraine won that. The French changes were awful though, maybe they should have trained that once or twice before the relay.

    Uhm, I think the gift for the medalist seems a piece of pottery (if someone recollects all the pieces maybe they could tile a bathroom walls :shuffle:)

    I thought so initially (and I hope is the case on athletes behalf :shuffle:, even if there are nice artisan pottery places close to Barcelona)

    Estévez shaved his head but his yellow nightmare dye bottle has a new owner in Spanish team :yikes:

    France runners are really strong in the 3000

    I do believe sweetsparky you may be right that it is a ceramic tile for them to decorate their bathroom. ;)
