Olympic thought for the day

Posted on: 31 July 2012


Monday 30 July

So what moments of great joy or disaster will the Olympics bring today? Will we see competitors from nations considered sporting paupers give competitors from nations that consider themselves the sporting royalty in the Olympic pond, when the former leave them behind in the quest for gold?

Not that the Chinese are sporting paupers any longer so why did the US and to a lesser extent Australia, indulge in what could only be described as malicious talk by obliquely suggesting that certain Chinese swimmers had won because they had used illegal stimulants. I can only say that both countries stand a very good chance of being seen as stone throwers in glass houses.

That apart as every gold medal winner is to be tested, it seems to me that if the inference made by the US and Australia is true, it gives rise to the suggestion that the testers are corrupt.

Let me end this brief blog by saying I wish every competitor, win or lose, will show the same sentiments as young Australian swimmer Emily Seebohm, who cried not because she didn’t win the gold medal (she won silver) but because she felt she had let her parents down.

Hopefully, other young people are competing not just for themselves but also for their parents.

I believe that you should write extra on this matter Olympic thought for the day Allan Takes Aim Blog. It won’t be a taboo topic but generally persons are not sufficient to talk on such topics.

Excuse, that I interfere, but it is necessary for me little bit more information.
