Default *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. 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.

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.

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.

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. As that will make you dizzy.

Yeah we do well in the summer games and seems to love the swimming. Ahh those Queenslanders swimmers know their stuff.

Terrie, Do you know when is the Winter Olympics are held? Or maybe here in Whistler Canada!!! So it's just 2 years away!! and of course I cannot wait.
I know what you're are think'n, A guy who lives in a dry country would be so alone in a sport that's sooo cold!!

I am just looking forward to watching the USA Basketball team again. I think they are almost as good as the original Dream Team.
