OT: Olympics

No one following the Olympics in Vancouver?

Had to admit during Carnaval I wasn't really aware of it but I really enjoyed the women 1000 metres speed-skating yesterday with Gerritsen and van Riessen although Wüst disappointed.

Only medal which we're going to win for sure is Kramer's 10 km, can't think of another one so far, probably a few more in speed-skating and perhaps Sauerbreij?

I'm watching it, being the night creature that I am.

Happy about the 2 medals gained by the ladies. Mostly following hockey though and some of the snowboarding events.

Sven in action btw!

1500 m about to start. Davis will probably take it, but there's a solid chance of a medal with 4 Dutchies involved. Big Sven among them!

Says our cricketfan. Thought you would like the curling too...

Great race by Tuitert this night. Was worth staying up that late and brings our total to a respectable amount. Especially with the 10KM still coming and the team pursuit.

Tonight perhaps chances of a medal too. Although not expecting the golden one again.

Cricket - a sport loved by more than a billion people

Speed skating - loved by a few Frisian farmers and sport number 25 outside out of perhaps Norway and South Korea

So all the popular sports in India or China are top of the bill?

Most of the skaters don't come from Friesland.

Impressive win. After two failed distances now everything went well.

Although the jubilation was a bit less than with Tuitert.

Shame about Boer. Two fourth places this tournament...

Missed Tuitert's race but saw Shani Davis fail and the Dutchie celebrate. Probably the best thing about these Winter Olympics. USA losing medals fills my heart with joy. So whats the deal, are the Netherlands only good at speed skating or what?

Mark Tuitert good to see he's finally put those years of injuries, accidents and failures behind him.
