Ribbon twirling is a sport?

Hard to believe, I know, but I'm sure we were all okay when Lori Fung won Gold in the sport...

Hey, if Power Walking can be in the Olympics, anything can.

My Dad is a competitive Race Walker (He'll be 90 next May) who participates in the Senior games every year. I've watched him train and have a new respect for it. It's every bit as much of an endurance sport as distance running. The old man used to be a 5k and 10k runner, but switched to race walking when the old joints couldn't take the pounding anymore.

BTW: If any sport should be dumped from the Olympics, my vote goes to The Dressage. You might as well have a "sport" with dog tricks, as well....
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Well with our bronze last night we've now tied our total medal count from Beijing. Although we had 3 gold in Beijing, only 1 here in London. I think our medal hopes our done, tomorrow is the last day :(

More props to the Canadian Women's Basketball team.

Of 4 teams in medal games 3 were in Canada's pool. The other (U.S.) Canada had to play first in playoff round.
Too bad they couldn't hold on against Russia or started in pool A.
Hockey is the only sport, the rest are just games.

I believe 11 am farewell of Olympics and Closing ceremony

11 am is the farewell and 1 pm is the closing ceremony according to the schedule

One day some of us will look back on the year and look at the chicago, and most of us will realize that it was a small bump in the road to the cup

Wtf?

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

The organizing committee is a joke for posting the result prematurely.

One step and you're disqualified because you run 399.99888 meters instead of the 400?

No we didn't. He stepped on the line, we should have been DQ'd, but the organizing committee shouldn't have posted the results so soon.

idc. Making us celebrate then just telling us we got DQ'd sucks. Its like Canucks scoring the cup winning goal then celebrating only to be shot down when refs disallowed the goal after 10 mins of celebrating.

We still didn't get "screwed" out of anything. It wasn't a win in the first place. It was the standings being posted prematurely.
