She had to pick a country and writing about it. Including fascinating facts. I gave her this one to include:
- New Zealand has one 33 Gold medals in it's Olympic history.
- Michael Phelps has won 14 Gold medals in the last 4 years.
I think that gets my point across.
Now, to gymnastics. I've watched the womens gymnastics and rooted as much as anyone for our team. Like most people in the world, I believe there are 3 or 4 girls on the Chinese team which are no more than 13 years old. No one in the IOC seems willing to make them play by the rules. But I think our own gymnast Nastia Liukin said it all without saying a word. After being technically robbed of the Gold medal, on the podium she looked down at little 12 or 13 year old He and gave her the look a teenage babysitter gives a spoiled brat. I think that's priceless.
ok. Done ranting today.
