Rajyavardhan Rathore – Thanks! I was hoping Abhinav Bindra would win a medal, unfortunately he lost out, but great show by Rathore. Our first ever Silver in an individual event. Some progress at least.
Ulyett/Black in the quarters is a toughie for Paes/Bhupathi. But our boys should come through anyway. Go guys go!! Get the Gold.
Too bad Federer had a lousy day though. I can’t believe he lost his Singles to some random player.
Saw a few swimming events yesterday. Amazing stuff. The 4*200 freestyle relay was brilliant. The US just squezed past Australia by 0.13 seconds or something, despite Ian Thorpe anchoring Australia.
Sometimes the whole thing seems so strange, here’s an athlete who has his moment in the sun once in 4 years, and he wins or loses medals by a few millimetres, a few milli seconds, a few grams, a point here, a point there. 0.1 seconds is the difference between a $10 million deal with Nike, and a $100,000 deal with say, Lakhani Shoes.
