London 2012 Olympics

The Olympics is over! We have to wait for another 4 years before we can get to see it again. United States is top with 46 gold medals, 29 silver and 29 bronze medals. That's a whooping total of 104 medals! China came in second with 38 gold, 27 silver and 23 bronze medals. Great Britain is third with 29 gold, 17 silver and 19 bronze medals. Singapore is number 75 with 2 bronze medals. Both are won by our table tennis girls. It doesn't really matter if we won any medal. What's most important is that the athletes put in their utmost efforts and play a fair game. Constantly challenging themselves to do better and break their own records. Of course, winning a medal is extra bonus.

There are a few great Olympians and some great matches to watch. Offhandedly, I can only remember Michael Phelps. He is such a great swimmer! Too bad, this is his last time in the Olympics. He will be retiring after this. I love how his family is so supportive of him and his swimming career.

Gambette everyone. I am sure many of you are good athletes in your own field. Work hard and your efforts will definitely pay off. You may be the next great Olympian. Will definitely catch the Olympics 4 years later. Hope that I will get a chance to watch it live (not on TV or online) one day. That will be so cool!!

If you are interested, here's the closing ceremony:
