I'd say we have plenty to be happy about.
Than Jamaica is the clear winners of the olympics.

quit bickering you two

Let's just enjoy another sweet day for our countrymen and women.

The Lopes-Schliep hurdle race was in-fucking-sane. Probably my favorite moment of the whole games.

That race was so close. Lopes-Schliep and the Austrailian girl( that was second)had that same time but the difference maker was the thousandths second. That was an amazing race

Unlike Van Chokerden, the 4 x 100 metre relay team looks to be able to do the unlikekly. I saw their semi and they finished 2nd to Jamaica. The thing i love about them is they seem to be a sum greater than the parts kind of team.

It also helps when other strong nations get disqualified for their baton handling. Canada's teamwork and exchanges are their strength. The final should be solid.

Go Canada!
