I am not but I admire Jamaica for their achievements. They are the star of this Olympics.

Quoting peacetrain

 And your swimmer who won gold in the 10k had a very touching story.  He was the right person to win on the day, because what a story and what a lesson in life.

 

Yes, Maarten van der Weijden was great. Hard to believe isn´t it that he suffered from cancer only 7 years ago? I watched the finish and his face, he said he couldn´t believe himself. Did you also see the pure joy on the face of one of friends, Pieter van de Hoogenband? So touching indeed.

Quoting Trudy

I´m a little proud of my very tiny country: nr. 10 in the list of medaillists, with 7 golden ones, leaving much bigger countries like France, Canada, New Zealand, Egypt and .... Turkey far behind! {#lang_emotions_flowers}

 

 Hi Trudy, I am old enough to remember Fanny Blankers Koen who won 4 golds for Holland in the 1948 olympics as a 30 year old mother of two.

I was impressed by Elvan Abeylegesse who won the silver medal in both the 5K and 10K for Turkey. Mind you, she was born in Ethiopia,came to Turkey ,stayed and became a citizen by marrying a Turk. (she is now divorced,apparently) A good result!
