I hope for a swiss win in the road bike time trial and the tennis championships.

And I'm especially looking forward to a great table tennis competition.

Go for the olympics!!

Yeah, his time wasl ike 3:54 right? Something like that!!

the fastest chinese was like 3:57 T_T he got 1st in his heat.. XD

but... that heat was on... slow crack <_< i swear when a chinese gets 1st place you know something is wrong... unless, he is really skilled, but we don't have any of those. >_>

Michael Phelps <3 his heat was on crack too! he was like 3:54 which is not that special compared to grant hackett's heat where 4 people were within 3:55 seconds <_<

I felt that the Chinese team depended too much on 3 pointers and when fatigue gets to you like marking a physically strong (comparatively) and fast "run and gun" team like the USA will do you suddenly find that your 3 pointers will miss all the time.

<_<

Not to mention that it's impossible to block a living meat block smashing down onto the basket without commiting a foul most of the time >_>

Did u see Michael Phelps 7th Swim for his 7th Gold medal? IT WAS SO AWESOME AND CLOSE!!! And so far hes tied for the most gold won in a one Olympics and going for his 8th which has been held by Spitz for 36 years!

His start was was slow and was in last place for the first half then Suddenly He caught up to first AND WON BY A FINGERNAIL!!!! Everyone thought he got Second BUT DAMMMMM SO CLOSE!! 1/100 of a SECOND WIN!

I'll post a link to a video if i find one, none on youtube cuz 3rd party crap D:

Edit: This race out of the 7 total is the only one where he didn't break the world record. For this Years Olympics

Closest race ever, smallest unit for difference xD
Even when i replay it in my mind about how it ended now it gets me fired up. He thought the half stroke me made cost him the race but it actually helped xD
I hope he wins this next race!
