*edit* Just to clarify: if she's passing Olympic style testing, then the questions are moot as far as I'm concerned. However, it IS true that newer and newer drugs get made every day and it's possible that they'll pass tests. Not saying that's true for this girl. But let's not act like China hasn't been banned en masse for doping in swimming.

I'm rooting for America, Japan, Africa(Don't know the participants haha) and Japan
What have I always believed? That, on the whole, and by and large, if a person lived properly, not according to what any priests said, but according to what seemed decent and honest inside, then it would, at the end, more or less, turn out ok.
Respect is given when honesty exists, when goal posts are not moved, when a simple "I was wrong" is stated rather than a "you misunderstood what I said".
I'm rooting for the best to win cleanly, and for the chicken-shit whining to be silenced
Pain shared is divided, joy shared is multiplied
I really enjoyed watching Marcel Nguyen win Germany's first men's all-around Olympic medal since 1936.
He is the least arrogant of the 3 strong gymnasts we had, and both Hambüchen and Boy choked while nobody saw Nguyen coming to take Silver.
We struggled against apartheid in South Africa, supported by people the world over, because black people were being blamed and made to suffer for something we could do nothing about; our very skins. It is the same with sexual orientation. It is a given.

Olympic boxing is a joke, anymore.
I remember when it was one of the highlights of the games, now it's just shit.
Stay away from the chimps. You can't reason with them and you'll just end up with monkey shit all over your clothes.

Congratulations Kayla Harrison. You are the new NBC Sob story poster child!!
Sure they'll praise your gold medal, but they really want to exploit your sad past.
And match wise, Gemma and Kayla shouldn't be proud of their performances.
PS: NBC...it's 1/2:0 not 2:0. Learn the sport, idiots.
Now that is a man who is on the ball. There can't be many politicians who'd pull that off.When one asked how he was feeling, he replied “very, very well thank you”, before shouting: "Get me a rope, get me a ladder" to bystanders.
“It’s very, very well organised,” he assured them. “It’s going well so far. Right.”
According to eyewitnesses, he spent the intervening minutes waving his flags and leading the audience in cheering on British gold medal-winning rowers.
It was a few months ago but only the roads being used by Olympic cyclists. And then there's the local bridge that's been a temporary replacement for fifty years...
"We must fight on!"
"We'll die. We fight and we die, that's how it goes."
"Then we die gloriously!"
"There's an important word there, and it's not gloriously."
