Re: Beijing Olympics 2008

i wonder how sports such as Judo and Shooting make the olympics, i mean ive got nothing against the sports themselves, but are they really olympic worthy? eg, a gold medal in shooting has the same value as in swimming or sprinting, doesn't seem fair in my opinion.

Our 400m swimmers were fantastic (How the hell did the British girl win??? She came from nowhere...). Anyway I'm watching Andy Murray get his arse whipped by some unknown 17 year old Taiwanese player. Typical British resolve to win a big tournament then lose to an unknown.

i don't wanna say this sport or that are bad .. cuz every sport has it own fans .. and some people would say that car racing are bad and boring .. where as we the F1 fans found it very intersting and it is seriously if u know what is going in the track and how hard those drivers payed thier dues on the track .. and the same thing happend in all sport .. all athlete are training hard to reach thier sport to best level ..
