    Donovan Bailey is at #2 and the Atlanta relay team is #13. Percy Williams #15, Ben Johnson #17, Greg Joy #42...not to mention a bunch of curlers and figure skaters.

        Ben Johnson could arguably have the greatest moment in Canadian sports history. Before the scandal broke, Canada had dethroned American 100 meter royalty, in such a pounding manner. The pinnacle of sporting glory, victory coming at the expense of the Michael Jackson of sport; the greatest star in the world, beyond Madonna, Mandela, Mother Teresa, MGM, McDonald's, Mickey Mantle, and Much else....I mean, this wasn't the Russians being beaten at a sport we know is played in limited venues, this was the YANKS getting their skirts shredded in the biggest and baddest way......Canada CAME of AGE that day. To hell with what happened afterward, at least the informed observers know what a bunch of radio goo-goo and tv ga-ga that was....

        Hey where's MM, ya know, not HMMMMMM........I mean the guy who could teach me how to write something other than unintelligible jibberish today./...//...,,,?????
        Take good care of yourself.

          What, no curling?

          My favorite winter Oly sport. The only one I can watch.

            37, 76, 87 and 94 were curling moments...although they didn't mention the "c" word in the descriptions.
