    I have no freaking idea. I wish them good luck but I am not a big 'SPORTS' person at all. I just have to much other things that I am running around, to give time to this. Yes, I do think for the person competing in this, it must be awesome...... The problem that I see is that SA is not a very big contender and we are not really big on the general Olympic sports and thus I do not think there is massive attraction to this awesome event in SA. If I look at the interaction with going on at the office, there was one comment about the Olympics and that was when our Project Manager made a comment about the hockey between SA and Netherland.....and yes he is from Netherland and they apparently beat SA. There was much more interest in the office environment with the recent Euro Soccer that took place.

    Not sure about results, although I really enjoyed watching the fencing, archery and ladies volleyball! ;D

    I heard that a lady shooter did not do well and so did not qualify for some event.

    The opening ceremony was fantastic. A clear "don't screw with China" but fantastic anyway ;D

    Yes, from the bits and pieces I saw from the opening ceremony, the Chinese went all out to make a statement......

    Well, maybe it is not as bad in ZIM as we think.......but on the other side, it is maybe the natural training they get from running away from the thugs of the ruling party.....

    As in everything else we South African's Fail dismally because of a huge lack of mental preperation, and I will stick to this!
