  • Grazerism's Oly Believe-It-or-Not

    This is old news, but here are the amazements all together:

    USA's first gold medal comes in--the women's discus!

    USA's first three gold medalists are named Stephanie Brown Trafton, Dawn Harper and Angelo Taylor.

    Of the first nine TFN gold picks from the USA to compete, ZERO win.

    After the shot put, a total of ONE US male athlete makes a final in the remaining seven field events.

    The winner of the pole vault does not remove his sweat pants until his third and final attempt at the winning height (5.90/19-4 1/4).

    Blanka Vlasic brings a 34-meet win streak to Beijing, jumps 2.05/6.8 3/4--and loses!

    After the results of all the 4x100s are in, the US and Great Britain are tied, both men and women.

    Belgium brings 3 siblings into the relay finals. Olivia Borlee runs the opening leg of the silver-medal 4x100, Kevin runs a 44.25 anchor in the heat, and his twin Jonathan scorches a 43.62 second leg in the final. (Have there ever been 3 track siblings in the same Olympics?)
