Olympics

So, Canada has a medal count. So of course, I'm crying. I didn't actually know we had won anything until they started playing the national anthem and then my eyes started watering. I'm such a giant suck. The anthem on it's own can generally start the water works with me but watching Carol Huynh holding her flowers and crying on TV just cinched it. Hell I'm crying just writing about it.

This is sooooo the wrong time of the month for me to be seeing this stuff. Still: Yay for Carol Huynh, David Calder and Scott Frandsen, and Tonya Verbeek. You make us proud!

It's nervewracking! The UK is now 3rd with 12 gold to our 4th with 11 gold. In the overall standings we are still 4th and the UK is 6th...

Which count is going to be the official winner?

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you guys. Although Canada is now racking up the medals. A local man just won a silver today... at the age of *61*. My parents had lunch in his little town outside the city today they were sooo happy. It was his 9th Olympics and his first medal.

I've just checked the news report again and it looks like it is the total medal tally. The UK sports minister was boasting they'd clear 40 medals this olympics and be ahead of Australia... *g*

At the moment we are at 33 medals and the UK is at 27. But they are still one ahead on gold... *glares* *g*

And congratulations! I saw that you'd got another medal overnight and were now at 9!!! Ranked 17th on gold and 15th overall. Which is good with over 40 countries competing!

*goes back to biting fingernails*
