New Single "Heart Attack" Available Now!
In between all the concerts there is also the Olympic games that start from tomorrow on. Today is the opening ceremony and in the beginning I sure loved it. When the dancing part started I loved it too but after a while it was boring. Then it was finally time for the delegations to come on and Belgium was of course in the beginning of it. I felt so proud :o) !
I watched the ceremony too :) I couldn`t watch it from the beginning, but I watched the countries and I have to tell that I`m so proud that Greece is always the first one ever that appears :D So proud to be Greek :D By the way I read on twitter that Enrique watched the ceremony too, so he must have seen our Greek flag :D Yayyyy :D
Yeah, you sure feel proud when you see your own country hu mi hija ? I know ! Had the same feelings. Hopefully they will score some medals. That would be awesome. Can't wait to watch it all :o) ! But Enrique watched it as well ? I didn't know. Am hardly on Twitter anymore these days. LOL ! So then he saw our delegation from Belgium a swell. Awesome :o) !
Tu Madre !
Yeah, it feels great when your country is there, especially when she`s the first one ever :D I`m not on Twitter, but they told me :) It`s just so awesome that he saw all of our countries there, isn`t it? :D
Sorry for my late reply though, but I`m hardly on the forum these days, I was busy because of my birthday and University (I have to learn on summer too and that sucks completely) -.-
They did a great job on it my friend. You can be proud. I loved the beginning. What a beautiful scene they made and then with all the technology they changed it in like 5 minutes. LOL ! Those childeren were so cute in their pajamas. I didn't watch it till the end cause it was already late. Watched till the delegations of the letter L or so. Then I went to bed ! LOL !
Hey June, the ceremony of your country was good :) There was a girl there I saw called also June and I thought of you ;) Are you going to see the Olympic Games? :)
Belgium has a first medal. Charline Van Snick got a bronze medal in judo. So that's awesome. I'm so happy for her. And of course I'm very proud of that. Cause we are such a tiny little country and on the first day we already have one ! Wooow ! Just wanted to share :o) !
Wow, that`s great :)
Thanks mi hija :o) !
Tu Madre !
Ozzie, Ozzie, Ozzie, Oi, Oi, Oi -------So proud of them - I love the swimming events!!
The Australian quartet of Alicia Coutts, Cate Campbell, Brittany Elmslie and Melanie Schlanger turned in a brilliant performance to win in three minutes and 33.15 seconds, an Olympic record.
They had to fend off a fast-finishing Dutch team, which clocked 3:33.79, while the United States were third in 3:34.24.
Australia's decision to leave veteran swimmer Libby Trickett out of the team was vindicated as 18-year-old Elmslie did well to give Australia a strong chance heading into the final 100m.
But Schlanger was the star of the show as she clocked a brilliant final leg of 52.65 to fend off Dutch star Romy Kromowidjojo, who sizzled home in 51.93.
"I was really able to put together a good race and that's the only way Olympic gold medals are won," Schlanger said.
"There's no better feeling than that.
"When everyone can fire on the day, that's what Olympic gold is made of."
It was Australia's first win in the event since a team featuring Trickett won gold at the Athens Games in 2004.
It also augured well for Australia's men's 4x100m freestyle relay team, which is hot favourite to win gold on Sunday night.
Campbell joked the women had now set the standard for James Magnussen and co.
"I think that we've just given them something to reach for, don't you think?
"They're reigning world champions but we're reigning Olympic champions. They'll have to wait to join us."
Trickett will still get her fourth Olympic gold medal, with all seven swimmers to receive one after Emily Seebohm and Yolane Kukla also took part in the heats.
Trickett was left out after Elmslie earned her spot with a quicker time in the morning heats, bringing an end to the veteran's London campaign as it was the only event she had qualified for.
Elmslie said she felt for Trickett but relieved she got the job done.
"Libby's such a great athlete and she'll always have earned the respect of Australia as she's done everything in the past and she's had the experience," Elmslie said.
"I just did my own thing in the heat and the coaches decided the end decision and I'm just happy that I could to Australia proud."
I saw them. It was so close up with those from the Netherlands. Congratulations to them my friend. Isn't it awesome to see how your country wins a medal ? I know ! Hi hi hi !
It sure does make you proud Hildeke - And you feel so happy for that athlete as an individual as well as been from your Country - They put in so many years of training - blood, sweat and pain as the saying goes-
Australia is not expecting too many medals this year as we have a lot of young new members coming through as opposed to previous games - All the best to them all regardless, I'm proud in the fact they they have worked so hard to make it there as I'm sure you are : ) I love the Olympic games, but the time zones suck!! lol
Oh that's so true my friend. You feel proud but also for the athletes cause what they do is amazing. They have to work so hard for it, go to bed early, don't go out, watch their food and drinks, ... and so on. It's more then just exercising. It's a whole way of living. So to get a medal then must be such a recognition for them.
Well we never have lots of medals. That's why I'm so proud right now. First day and we have already a medal. That's like Enrique would come to Belgium every month to give a concert ! LOL ! I hope noone get's mad at me for going on about this topic but I love sports. For us the time zone doesn't matter. It's one hour earlier in the UK so that goes. And for you ?
