gostei de ler/ver sobre os JO

1. para mim foram os jogos mais bonitos, um momento de ilusionismo, dificil de repetir, a China ganhou a sua aposta, e até aos próximos veremos o que perdemos. 2."It seems a little unfair when you had 10,708 athletes competing for 906 medals in 28 different sports, but the Beijing Olympics will mainly be remembered for the deeds of just two young men - a 22-year-old sprinter from Trelawny, Jamaica and a 23-year-old swimmer from Baltimore, USA.In the space of a few weeks here in China, Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps transformed themselves from notable names within their own sports into global sporting superstars.One was fuelled by chicken nuggets and yams, the other by fried egg and cheese sandwiches with extra mayo, but on track and in water, they each made the impossible seem easy." in 3. e para acabar:
"The old “what goes on tour stays on tour” mantra is still alive and kicking, not just in sport but beyond. There is something deepseated in humanity that leads us to play by different rules whenever we leave town, a phenomenon that has caused instances of terrible inhumanity. When it comes to sex, it simply means that those in relationships no longer recognise, or at least ignore, the boundaries of fidelity and honesty that underpin human monogamy. Philosophers call it moral relativism; the rest of us call it hypocrisy."

  1. Concordo plenamente, ganharam em todos os aspectos, organização (Cerimonia de Abertura e Encerramento foi um deslumbramento), os melhores em minha opinião e bateram p'la 1ªvez o ranking das Medalhas de Ouro, suplantando tudo e todos, apenas perderam uma Medalha, a mais importante... a Medalha da Liberdade!
