I'm personally exhausted from watching them. Up past midnight every night. Snooooooooooze.

What a run by Usain Bolt, taking the 200m title with a new world record and the rest of the field at least 0.5 seconds behind him.

Usain Bolt, Wow! Watched the 200m race w/all the disqualifications.

Another Jamaican gold medallist - Veronica Campbell-Brown in the women's 200m athletics final. The Jamaicans are having a good meet!

Mike - I felt really sorry for Spearman yesterday. Why didn't someone tap him on the shoulder earlier? Poor guy - he looked so happy too...

It wouldn't surprise me if the girls, and there were others underage as well, don't know their real ages. These girls are examined at very tender ages of 3 and 4 and if found to have heights, bone structures and flexibility for future stardom, they are harvested for gymnastic training. Now, if China goes that far, I believe they most likely tamper with birth records and passports for their own benefits. That's how I feel about it, anyway. During the all- around team competition, it was clear that some didn't have bodies of even young teenagers. I know they have fragile bodies, but look at them!!!! No way they were all of legal age. It wasn't just this one girl who was competing underage. We know they are dishonest. Just look at the trouble the USA has had with some of their food products, and other merchandise, in the past year. They knowing are adding unhealthy components and sending unsafe products. Tampering with records is not beyond them either.
