Olympics thread

Lets post our thoughts, predictions and results here. With all the drug usage and cheating, do you think the Olympics have lost their significance? I think that the drugs have tainted the results a little bit, but still the Olympics as a whole is pretty significant.

What about medals for India? Last time we won only one bronze medal in Women's weightlifting. This year that medal winner is also participating. Plus one of our women long jumper is ranked fourth in the world, so we have a chance there. Paes and Bhupathi provide another medal chance. And of course there's mens hockey. I feel we can win no more than 4 medals. What do you guys think?

bout drug usage..

some people use it..some unknowingly use it..
tha market has been inundated wid a wide variety of performance enhancers..it may be too late before tha athlete realizes that tha enhancer contained some banned substance in it..
but naah,i dont think it has tainted Olympics in any way..juz a handful of them drug abuses..thaz ok..

medals fo India?? thiz may sum it up fo ya "merey baitay bh0sdikay,doctor bun,engineer bun..yeh sachin,leander ka naatak chhod,hazaaron line mein paday haiN"..i dont blame them parentz though..thaz how it iz in India - ya gotta do stuff thaz reliable fo tha family..

thiz coupled wid tha fact that cricket has hogged it all..tha freakin hockey playaz had ta spend tha night on an airport (correct?)..but no 1 gave even a flyin fukk..

but ya,thurr have been a coupla hailey's commets in India..kabhi bronze,kabhi gham..and so it goez..kudos ta them commets

some n1ggaz who absolutely hate studies and somehow get into sports can be tha savin grace fo India IMHO..

1 2 3 yippie yeah yippie yo,wherez mah dog at...dont tell me now..

sportsmen and women have always taken performance enhancing drugs. this is nothing new and will continue forever. the olympic games- or any other major sporting event for that matter- do not, in my view, lose their significance as a result of the activities of a few bad apples.

with regard to india's chances i cringe every time i think about our expected medal tally. it is truly shameful that in a nation of over a billion people we could only muster one medal the last time. we should be in the top five all the time. dream on dream on.........

Two of our women weightlifters finished 4th in their categories (>48kg & 48-53kg). However, the 63kg event has not started yet, our only medal winner in the last Olympics is in the 63 kg event.

Don't settle for anything less than the Gold, boys!

-----------
Bhupathi/Paes are ranked 5 currently. They face 4th seeded pair from Zimbabwe in next round (QF)

This is gonna be a tough one. Federer an Roddick were just doing time-pass in the doubles.. But Paes-Bhupati pair is gonna bring back gold this time.

Btw, Who the fukk has coined this 'Lee-Hesh' nick ?

Paes and Bhupathi lost yaar Gold gaya... but we're still in for the Bronze. They'll play the losers of the 2nd semi to win the Bronze.
