Olympic Open Thread II

Published by at 9:49 am under All General Discussions

Boy, it was definitely worth staying up to see the 4×100 m men’s free relay last night. The trash talking French are now eating good ol’ American crow! The man of the day is not Phelps, but one Jason Lezak who tore down the last 50 meters and stunned the world!

A big Strata Salute to Jason Lezak, that gold medal is all yours!

The other swimmer who had us on the edge of our seats was Silver Medalist Katie Hoff. Just missing the gold is still amazing against the field she swam against.

    That was definitely a “USA! USA! USA!”, fist pumping, “YEAH!” moment. Even the commentators had written off the US team but forgot to account for the most important part of the equation in winning….heart.

    Katie Hoff was amazing! I can’t doggie paddle very well let alone swim that fast. 🙂

    GO USA!!
