    No matter what country it is, I'm always sad when someone takes a step, goes out of bounds, stumbles, etc.

    I'm cheering for everyone these days because I'm truly embarrassed by the lack of sportsmanship by some of the Australian olympians. Harden up Princess! *staring straight at Magnussun and Seebong*

    Russia's Aliya Mustafina always looks like she's on the verge of a serious crying jag or beating the shit out of someone.

    I'm surprised at how many mistakes and whoopsies the Russian's are making in the gymnastics final. I'm embarassed for them.

    I'm seeing how being really buffed up and ripped benefits the U.S. ladies. They look solid and can power themselves higher and hold on to bars, beams, and landings when they need it, and these Russian girls look willowy, but almost frail.

    Me either - I don't get all the Phelps knocking that I'm hearing. The guy's got 19 medals and even if he finishes second, he's second IN THE WORLD. Still not that shabby.

    Ditto. He comes across as an ass sometimes, but damn, when did a silver medal become losing? We're thrilled when any other one Olympian from our country medals in any event.

    Who was the female coach for the US? She was the first one to get to most of the girls after their routines, and some of them looked to me like they were barely tolerating her. Jordan W kept her eyes downcast during one of her long congratulations spiel's, and only looked up when the other girls finally got a chance to congratulate her .

    On a related note, what is up with the medal winners biting down on their gold medals when they are having their picture taken? That is so tacky.
    Brace yourself, he will now be on all the magazine covers,as well he should.
    I saw the USA women gym team doing that bite-the-medal thing after the news people asked them to.

Australia still has a huge chip on its shoulder about some things. Sigh.
    Sadly this is all true.

    That was a fantastic win by the Brit girls, they were so far out in front it was like watching 2 different races. I was glad we won silver, that was a great finish and with NZ coming third there'll be so many Union Jacks on the podium it'll be like the Commonwealth Games.

    ^ Yep! One of them only started rowing 4 years ago. The other is in the army I think.
