Hey,

Just thought I would get the members opinion here on who they would like to see win the 2004 Olympics this year?

I would like to see U.S.A. win. ;)

Thanks!

I shall reveal something here, as food for thought.

Readers of Deeper Blue know me well by know.

I have never, in my 53 years of existence on this planet, had the slightest interest in the Olympics.

Why do you suppose that is ?

Im not sure you could really say any country can win the Olympics...

In the end its population thats one of the largest factors. Not mention that some countries have never heard of synchronised swimming or dressage.

If you divide the countries medal hauls by their populations the United states comes about 40th...

Thanks to the "Dream" for those figures, the best Olympics show on TV...:D

Go Liechtenstein! :D

Well if that were to be the reason, i'd still watch it. There are more sports that I like to watch, but I know that I can not play. :ko

I personally love to see medals spread around the globe as freely as possible. Heck, the UAE won doubles trap. How much cooler can it get? On the other hand, every time NBC talks about another country's athlete, it inevitably comes up that they train in the US. Does that make us any kind of good guy? Probably not.

Back from Africa, with tales.

Adrian, I think you've hit on it !

After the revolution, it will be ONLY freediving, and all the others can apply for inclusion and be considered, each on it's merits.....all in good time.
