In the 4 x 100 we thought we won bronze but were disqualified.

very very poor form on the part of the officials to post Canada as the bronze-medal winners and then take it back. really poorly done. i feel so bad for our runners.

Just saw the highlights...and that's very disappointing.

Nice to see Canada be the third fastest team on a world stage though, it's been a while since we've seen that, and it looks like we have a long team (even including a white guy! I'm allowed to say that, 'cause I'm a white guy.)

Agree with LX on this one, we've had some bad luck in these games.

felt bad for the 4x100 relay team. Why did the judges post the scores before they became official I don't know.

Would have been nice to win a medal in another premier event but what can you do. Pretty dissapointing medal haul for Canada these olympics. Hopefully in Rio Canada wins a gold in a sport I can take seriously

How does Canada not win anything in a sport that looks like girls pretending to be in Cirque de Soleil? Just as well, rhythmic gymnastics and Rod Black is a deadly combination. I think I might prefer to be waterboarded.

i thought Canada did fine once all was said and done. 18 medals isn't bad. That's more medals than days in the olympics.

But the 4x100 was such heartbreak. I still feel terrible for those runners.

Sorry but with how many medals are actually given out at the Summer olympics, 1 gold and 18 medals is completely terrible...

WHAT DO YOU KNOw both stories are true. Also I would flip out of Page and Plant enter the stage but it won't happen

Quote:

"On Tuesday April 7, 1998 at 14.50 hours officer Shan Davis # 353 was working plain clothes crime suppression in the area of Will Rogers Park , locate at Canon Dr. and Lomitas Avenue in Beverly Hills, California. Due to the increasing number of complaints of lewd activity in the men's restroom, we checked for any subjects loitering in the area. The officer saw George enter the men's restroom . "As I walked into the restroom, I noticed the male subject standing at the urinal. He turned and glanced in my direction. I walked into the stall and stood by the toilet with the stall door remaining open. I began to simulate urinating. Michael stepped away from the urinal and walked over to the south wall, and looked into the stall toward my direction. I noticed that Michael was exposing his erect penis toward my direction, and began to masturbate, and with his left hand pulled his sweatpants down to his upper thigh revealing his buttocks (and that cleverly placed nicotine patch). He continued to masturbate as I walked past him, and left the restroom. I contacted my fellow officer, and arrested Michael as he exited the restroom."
Quote:
George Michael has revealed how close he came to dying from pneumonia, describing his recent battle against the illness as "touch and go" and "by far the worst month of my life".

The singer, who was treated at an Austrian hospital after falling ill while on tour last month, said he felt "very weak but amazing" after returning to the UK.

Speaking to reporters at a hastily convened press conference outside his north London home, a thin, emotional and frail-looking Michael said he was not supposed to speak for long as he was recovering from a tracheotomy.

He said: "It was by far the worst month of my life, but I am incredibly, incredibly fortunate to be here and to have picked up the bug where I did."

Fighting back tears, the singer said he had "woken up" in the hospital 10 days ago and had played down the gravity of his illness to avoid alarming his fans. "I got streptococca-something It's a form of pneumonia and they spent three weeks keeping me alive basically," he said.

The 48-year-old former Wham! singer thanked all those who had sent messages and support and paid tribute to the medical staff who cared for him. He said he had spent the 10 days since he woke up thanking those who kept him alive.

The singer said his family, fans and "the fact that I still have plenty to live for" had helped him pull through the illness. He added: "I have an amazing, amazing life and if I wasn't spiritual enough before the last four or five weeks then I certainly am now."

He also said he would make up the cancelled dates of his Symphonica tour. "The plan is to play to every single person who had a ticket," he said. "And I would like to play one show for the doctors in the hospital in Austria who saved my life."

Michael posed for photographers in front of a Christmas tree on a green across the road from his house. Asked if he would pose without his dark glasses, he smiled and said: "No, I'm sorry."

Before he appeared, an assistant had brought out a plate of mince pies for the waiting reporters and photographers. Michael wished them all a happy Christmas and said: "I hope you enjoyed your mince pies."

Last month, doctors at the AKH hospital in Vienna said Michael had been in intensive care because of the severity of the illness and made clear he would need a complete rest to recover. But they emphasised he had no further underlying health problems.

In a statement, professors Gottfried Locker and Christoph Zielinski said: "The latest development in Mr Michael's case, which has evolved from a severe pneumococcal infection, necessitated intensive care due to its severity and extension. We are happy to announce that Mr Michael is improving steadily with an impressive regression of pneumonic symptoms, and follows a steady rate of improvement as hoped.

"There are no other health issues with regards to the patient other than the underlying pneumonic disorder, and no further measures had to be taken."
