Caught up in the Olympics...

I wasn't really all that excited about the Olympics, but it has only just started and all ready I have been caught up in several games. I was looking forward to the men's handball games, since this is probably where Denmark will have a chance in winning a medal, there and in one of the rowing competitions. 

Though today I have watched cycling road race, ping-pong, rowing, rifle shooting, women's handball and swimming... why, well there isn't much else on TV worth watching, but somehow I get caught up in the games. Especially swimming, since a heat isn't all that long, there have been Danes competing, one girl is even in the Final tomorrow. I can't help think about when I took swimming lessons back when I was 8 or 9 years old, I did compete once, and I actually won first place (I should mention that I was the only one in my age group)... when my mind wanders, and what if I had stuck to it... could I have been in London competing now? Well probably not, since I just heard them say that some of the swimmers were in their last Olympics, and they were only 26 and 27 years old... but I could have been great in Sydney in 2000 or Athens in 2004... probably not, but it's fun to think about.

I do have to mention that the riffle shooting, I did only watch since they interrupted the cycling in order to show the women's final. Besides did you know that in China it's harder qualifying for the Olympics in riffle shooting than it is winning the Olympics... that only makes the Danish girls look even worse, she was out after the first round:)

So I guess the next week of my vacation I might be watching the Olympics... might as well as it seems like the weather is taking a turn to the worse again.


  1. I've been hooked on the cycling all weekend! I am obsessed!

  2. I've been sort of watching but for some reason it isn't pulling me in like usual...

  3. i'm having Olympic withdrawal symptoms....
    i actually even mangage to get tickets to go watch the boxing...not really a sport i would normally watch but i had so much fun!


Your comments makes me smile:)
