    Aussie track legend Raelene Boyle was commentating on Usain's 200m race and would insist on telling everyone "he has the complete package". Well yes Rae, he most certainly does LOL

    I'm hoping maybe public pressure will get something done...it's happened in the past with other things.
    I really hope the US team protests.
    The chinese girls DID do a good job, however, the rules were broken. If I was Nastia I would be very very bitter, she was not allowed to compete in the last olympics and yet these girls are younger than she was.
    There's also all that biased judging...

    If rules are broken then there should be consequences. Their cheating is not in the spirit of the games.

    Hahaha didn't she say in her interview after that she accidentally sprinkled it on a platform they were carrying???

    I don't find it odd at all, tons of people sprinkle ashes in different places. I also have a feeling that cremated ashes are the least of my worries when at the beach. I've found some nasty things in the sand before...

    Is it just me or are the Chinese competing in every single competition offered this Olympics?

    The host country usually does. Australia did when we had it in Sydney.

    question. Last night I saw the women in softball win against Japan. I saw two games and the USA won. Today it said Japan won.
    What happened?

    We are doing great in equestrian! Taekwando is really interesting this time around too!! -- of course I've had to watch most of it on the Internet grrrrrrrrrr

    Having the home court has it's advantages but at least we didn't cheat (bombing yes but cheating no)

    That being said, the age rule is complete bullshit. It should be eliminated entirely. I also don't get why people are crying about biased judging? This Olympics was probably the fairest judging since '96. The rules have changed dramatically and it may be difficult for a layperson to understand why someone who falls on a vault (Chung Fei) can place 3rd over someone who didn't fall (Alicia Sacramone). But that doesn't mean the judges are biased--just limited by the mandatory values and deductions they must make.

    I missed it Sarzy but it can't be that bad I'm sure London will do a fine job.

    All the singing is getting on my nerves. The Athens ending ceremony was pure crap. The tower thing and all that the Chinese did was nice but the singing is equally crappy.
