    maybe you are not clear how the IOC functions .... in modern Games, because of high tech equipments, judges and coaches all have equal chance to voice any objection in scoring and there are the millions of people watching. Sometimes one must have certain knowledge in the sport to understand the fine differences in the standard of the competitors.
    For instances, the two Americans are so good in their women gymnastic and they won many Gold and Silver. However in certain events they made mistakes and they paid for that. Even the best Chinese ShaSha fell in the beam event and didnt get any medal for that.
    If you keep having wrong idea about the judges, then you wont be able to enjoy the fantastic skills of the competitors ....

    i might be a wee bit OT by saying this, but i just have to get it off my chest....

    Why in the world are there no stuffed toys for the medal recipients??? we've seen them given out in previous Games but why none in Beijing?? after all, isn't China supposed to be the biggest toy factory in the world?!

    I think the recent toys recalls made China ditch this idea in favour for a good view and easeness from the Western Countries

    After all, there's very slim chance of lead paint getting on flowers wouldnt it?

    The super fast Bolt!!!!!

    Man, this Olympic game gave us all a great SHIOK!!! a cheetah man on land, a fish man in water

    The Jamaican are really taking over fast track events from US. USA team runners are so disappointing. Ever since the dopping scam exposed, the runners' performance are just "mah mah"

    This is awesome.

    Take a look at the 4th round matchups for the singles table tennis for women.

    There are two girls from Holland playing, and their names are:

    Li Jiao
    Li Jie

    There is one girl from the Dominican Republic (!) playing, and her name is:

    Wu Xue

    There is one girl from the US playing, and her name is:

    Gao Jun

    There is one girl from Austria playing, and her name is:

    Li Qiangbing

    And from Singapore, of course, there is:

    Feng Tian Wei
    Li Jiawei

    And the remaining players are from China, Hong Kong, and 2 natives from South Korea and Japan in total.

    So out of 16 players in the 4th round, 14 are Chinese, representing a total of 7 countries!

    They should just call it the Chinese National Table Tennis Championships.

    There is another GRAND final tonight, the 200m Women Sprint Final....
    this race is almost like between Jamaica and USA, with 3 runners from each countries

    There is a strong possibility that the Jamaicans will win another top 3 medals for this race, which will really be a fantastic historical event!

    I am very sure that the 4x100m Women GOLD will also go to the Jamaicans.

    My personal bet :

    Qtr final:

    ZHANG Yining should wins FENG Tianwei

    LI Jia Wei should wins WANG Chen (USA)

    WANG Nan should wins TIE Yana (HK)

    GUO Yue should wins WU Xue (DOM)

    Semifinal:
    ZHANG Yining should wins LI Jia Wei

    GUO Yue should wins WANG Nan

    Final:
    ZHANG Yining should wins GUO Yue

    It is most unfortunate that our girls are in the Zhang Group. Though Feng is naturally a very good player, she is still too raw to fight Zhang, but Feng will definitely improve her ranking soon .... probably to No 7?
    Jia Wei should beat Wang Chen. Jia Wei is a very good player but mentally she must control herself.

    We only can hope that Feng creates another sensational win over Zhang and a Gold is a possibility if that happens..... and that is possible, but unlikely.

    Shocking performance from Team USA's 4 x 100 m relays - both the men and womens' teams! Don't they practice passing the baton properly?

    Dropping the baton for both teams in the Olympic for their best hope races are not shocking ..... what is really shocking is that the same happen in the last Games too
    Now the USA runners are blaming the Caribbean islanders that they are casting voodoo curses on them
