How many of you watched trampoline in the Olympics either this past year or in Sydney? What did you think?

For those of you interested in learning more about it, or do Trampoline and Tumbling, check out t_and_t, LiveJournal's first and only community specifically for trampoline and tumbling.

Thank you!

ATHENS, Greece New York City's (b) billionaire mayor will return from Athens two dollars richer. But what he's really hoping to bring home is progress toward winning the 2012 Olympics.

Bloomberg exchanged gifts with Athens mayor Dora Bakoyiannis (bak-oh-YAH'-nee) at a reception on the roof deck of City Hall. He brought a banner and a plate. She gave a representation of the city symbol, an owl.


Does she have a favorite in the competition?


"I'm not allowed to have a favorite," she told reporters. Paris, London, Moscow and Madrid are also finalists for the 2012 Games.


And the two dollars?


Bloomberg says he won it in a bet with an Australian friend on the U-S-Australia men's basketball game.


"I don't know if it's legal," he said.

and the last 3Collapse )

I was wondering something. I seem to remember that at the last Olympics the athletes were asked to vote for the athlete that showed the best sportsmanship during the Games and the athlete who got more votes got a medal or a certificate or something of the like. Am I wrong? Did that really happen? Do they do that every year? Did they do it this year? Who won? (hehe, such a load of questions!)

oh, one last thing: in 2010, the Winter Games will be in VANCOUVER! That's in my country! I so need to go!

May be an odd request...

Due to other demands on my time, I missed most of the opening and closing ceremonies. I don't suppose anyone knows where they could be obtained? Preferably the CBC coverage? (I find their commentary less intrusive).

Kyriakides segment? [Aug. 30th, 2004|06:49 pm]

Hello! By any chance, does anyone have a tape of the pre-closing ceremonies segment on NBC about Stylianos Kyriakides (the Greek marathoner from the 40's)? They mention Kalavrita where my father-in-law is from and it would mean a lot to have a copy.

Thanks in advance!!
