    I'll skip the athletic part (although training for it at the moment, but physical fitness can be useful also in different context ;)) ... :mrgreen:

    You have great math skills.

    That, or I like the way you think.

    Or both...............................:mrgreen:


    Oh, I forgot...... the womens Beach Volleyball. Followed by the mens Beach Volleyball. The diving comps were awesome. Oh there was so much to watch and so many great athletes from all over the world, I think this was a very good Olympics.

    In the closing ceremony, it was pretty cool to see all the athletes from all the participating countries come out and mingle. I think/would hope that's what it's all about anyway.

    It was a fantastic Olympics, and I can't wait for Vancouver in 2010 (I loves me some Winter Olympics)
