    Best part of Spanish routine happened before competition, the swimmers cut their hair to wear their fish caps. Seriously, they showed it at the news, and some of them looked kind of sceptical about all that and not very happy. Watching the scissors working I thought there was a chance they would swim to "I dreamed a dream" but they were just in happy fish mood
    Zorry my english, I´m a verrrrrry rude spaÑish

    Ireland in the same 4x400 semi as US, GB and Russia.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Very hit and miss. at the Korean coming out of his handstand. Those dives make me so nervous.

    My fave Mitcham is doing great though! His list might not be hard enough to keep up, though.

    I know. When the first qualfying heats were on and they talked about them, I literally did a double take and then..."Did I hear what I thought I heard?"

    And isn't that the truth!!

    I am not looking forward to Sochi and what could happen there. Yes, we did incredable in Vancouver, but those were Home Games. Every major company in Canada sponsored a team. Now that 2010's history, all that support has disappeared. Yes, I know part of it is due to the ecomony, but not all of it.

    For Jon Montgomery to have to go public and plead for sponsorship for Bobsled and Skeleton Canada last Fall or they'd go belly up just should NOT be happening.
