Yeah I agree, but if you are the best, you have to be a little show-off.

The 200 meter race should be exciting .. Bolt is going to get his second medal and perhaps he will break the record of Michael johnsson .. and US has tuff mission .. the gap between them and china increased to 17 gold medal

Yeah, that was quite crazy. He celebrated like 10-15 metres before the finish line! Makes me wonder what would his time be if he ran at full strenght :D

I guess the old adage "old enough to bleed, old enough to breed" doesn't necessarily apply to the olympics! :blush:

Got distracted from the qualifying by the middleweight boxing final. The referee was terrible,the British guy was bitten in the chest by his Cuban opponent but the British fella (James DeGale) won 16-14.
