went yesterday........dont even bother wondering if they are close to athens....they arent. Journalists need to have their freedom of speech taken away from them, because theyre jackasses. They trashed Athens which i really see how EVEN better it was and it was the best ever games.

It seemed in Torino as the games were just a detail, not a giant event. There were not very many volunteers, most of them hardly spoke anything but Italian, and the tram beleive it or not was just as bad as in Athens!!! It was really not very friendly/simple to get to / find events ......i did go see Sweden-Latvia though, the arena was beautiful, and there were people, the venues looked very nice...but still simply wont compare....(probably also because its the winter olymics, as for the volunteers i understand they cant get students because its in the winter..)

In today's action:

Magda Kalomirou was disqualifed in Run 1 of the Women's Slalom.

Lefteris Fafalis in men's Sprint qualified to the Quarterfinal stage, but failed to qualify to the semifinal stage finishing 6th in Heat 4. By far the best showing of all the Greek athletes at these Olympics.

Panagiota Tsakiri finished last in the qualifying stage of Women's Sprint and did not qualify to the quarterfinal stage.

they just saw some of the moments where switzerland got some medals. and i think i found out who is the loser of the games: Lindsay Jacobellis. why that? she was safely leading the snowboard cross finals and wanted to set a highlight to show off. and she crashed!!! :LOL: :LOL:

finally the gold medal went to switzerland and Tanja Frieden. :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

reminds me of the short trak final in salt lake city...
