*Olympics Beijing 2008*
 
This is the exciting time for the Oympians (and most of the World) at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. Here are a few links for the information and progressions of these important Games.

It is always Amazing to see the Top World Athletes during the peak of their performances and giving it their ALL.

We wish each of these courageous People, the Best in every way.
That wish is definitely for any Diabetic Olympians. Good Luck!!

Hum! Well, in all the times that I have watched the Olympics, I don't recall Canada not winning medals. I mean there are a few countries in the Games that I've never heard of but they've won 1 medal each so far anyways.

I suspect the Canadians showed up for the Opening Ceremonies then....took the first bus home. :D I hope they turn that bus around.

It is interesting however watchng China and the USA duke it out. Wow!
Perhaps Australia will sneak up behind them and beat them both. :rolleyes:

the dutch they do it not bad.
to day we won the silver madal with dressage.
thats is very good............huh canadian have they not i medal?

Terrie 08-15-2008 08:59

Ya, I was going to say the Dutch are getting up there for medals too. Terrific!

We still can't believe how badly the Canadians are doing. They certainly aren't focused. Oh well, hopefully they'll pick it up.

Terrie 08-17-2008 13:12

Well, it looks like the Canadians got that bus turned around and are back in Beijing. We are on the board. Whew!! Now, it shouldn't be a problem passing the Americans. :rolleyes: :D

And just what you think that we are good at Terrie. Put an Australian on skates and we just fall apart. I wonder when the Winter Olympics are held? As I would like to look at the figure skating with their triple lutes and triple toes and those fluerettes. :eek: As that will make you dizzy. :o ;)
