go for the gold

"One World One Dream" - the theme slogan of the 2008 olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXIX Olympiad, which is being celebrated in Beijing, China that officially started last August 8, 2008 and will end on Aug. 24, 2008. 10,500 athletes, 302 events in 28 sports, and the best athletes from all over the world competing, hoping to get the gold.

As of this writing China is leading the race for Gold followed by USA. And i really do admire Michael Phelps for winning his 11th Olympic gold, setting records over and over again... undoubtedly he's the best swimmer in the world!

I wish our Philippine athletes to get the prized gold medal, it would be the first if ever in our history. Praying that our bet Harry Tanamor gets to win on his fight tonight (20:15) under the Mens light fly division against Manyo Plange of Ghana.


UPDATE: *sigh* our be harry tanamor lost! the elusive olympic gold medal is still out of reach by the RP team =(
