This Years Olympics
Posted 12 August 2004 - 06:29 PM
Good luck to each of the competing countries this year and here's to a great Olympic contest at the original home of the competition.
We do wish to do a little flag waving for our great country though.

Good luck - and we'll see who can get the first medal!

We have a TV ad about that - it's quite funny - the track stars are running around on a bumpy unfinished track with detour signs while the Greek workmen are enjoying eating whatever it is the hell they're advertising.

I agree - it looked like touch & go there for awhile. Well done Greece.
Don & Margaret did you know that Australia has sent the second largest team of competitors after the U.S. - there could be lots of competition. Our friends are the parents of back-stroke swimmer Matt Welsh so we will be watching the swimming with much interest.

Matt Welsh? I LOVE him!!! Hope he wins - he absolutely deserves it!!

As always my small little country is convinced they will win a lot of medals, kind of cute isn't it?

Love the flags! Wondering how many nationalities we have on this site (excluding some who do not post their country .....Jupiter, Mars.... )!
Karin, will be watching Sweden too. There is a Swedish Church over the road from where I live and our favourite local Restaurant is also Swedish...

GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE ATHLETES TAKING PART, JUST TO BE PICKED TO REPRESENT YOUR COUNTRY MUST BE A GREAT HONOUR, BUT I HAVE TO SAY IT..
COME ON THE BRITS, BRING SOME GOLD HOME FOR US

Good luck to Sweden in the Olympics. Here's a flag for your athletes. We'll be rooting for them since we know you will also.

Thanks for that Jacky & Sandra. Matt Welsh is not only a great swimmer & a good-looking guy but he is a very nice person as well. A support team of friends left Melbourne about 10 days ago for Athens, calling themselves THE POOS - Parents/Pals of Olympic Swimmers!
Karin - I'm sure Sweden will do well & Good Luck to all Countries Competitors.
Don & Margaret - I love the waving flags, they look fantastic - Can we have some more?

Denise has posted a flag under another heading. Wish I could get some of those!
Do not know how to do this with my computer......

We're doing well in the Pool and winning what we're supposed to be winning.
Just wish the finals weren't happening at 3am our time!!
Go you Aussies - go for gold!!

Tied in the medal count but waay behind in golds. Your guys and gals can flat swim, Sandra. Do ya'll grow up with fins attached?
