    I was very impressed by Mexico - I remember Espinosa from Beijing and really liked her. Great to see she found such a talented young partner!

    Viva Mexico!!

    Second silver medal and very well deserved, the girls fought for the medal that third and fifth dive were awesome!!

    Today is Paola´s birthday, she turns 26 what a present for her, a second medal and this makes her another first in our sport´s history as she becomes the first female athlete in our country to win 2 olympic medals

    And I think that Alejandra becomes the youngest olympic medal winner ever for Mexico

    I am excstatic!!!

    Win, place, or show, Troy and Kristian did a fantastic job thru all 6 rounds! Their synchronization and entries were superb (even if their DD was not the highest).

    And we wait.............

    China assured another gold, but the other medals not certain.

    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    It's interesting that they seem to handle pressure like it's no big deal in diving, but not at all in (women's) gymnastics. Maybe their divers can teach their gymnasts a few things about that.

    Saw this picture floating about the internet today: http://i.imgur.com/7w926.jpg Figured it had to be diving.
    Sometimes I think I lost something really important to me, and it turns out I already ate it.

    I Just Don't Know What to Say

    If they had passed away a day or two before the Olympics..ok. But more than a year? and that her mother was fighting breast cancer and they didn't tell that either
