I like waching the diving because they do it exatly right u could not see the back persons leg it was cool! I also likes the gymnastics that was good aswell, I liked it when they let go on the bar and did a back flip on the bar. I never got to watch the rowing but it sounds good. Isaw the tennis today in hetcotes apyances.

i reckon that rob waddel should be doin the single skulls not Mahe,coz rob waddel rows faster and has more strength,mahe waits till the end and sometimes leaves it too late.

Fair comment anonymous? But mahe had caught a stomach bug and wasn't really at his best. We'll see how he goes.

Disappointing for Marina Tahlia, but she is still young enough to improve and maybe one day beat her.
