Not to mention Szabo and Szeckly finished 1 and 2 in the 1500 M

BTW are they both Hungarian - Romanians? Their last names are definetely not romanian

Gaby Szabo is half-Hungarian and she married her trainer, also a Hungarian, although I seem to recall a statement of hers that she doesn't speak the language... maybe I'm wrong. Violeta's maiden name is 'Beclea', her married name is 'Szekely', so I suppose she's Romanian.

da, bravo ei.

Romania was on the 7th place. Not bad for a small country who sent only 28 athletes :)


By the way, every medal Romania had was earned by women ... as always! Romanian women are much better than the men in sports.

she wasn't pathetic, she was simply...exhausted!! that was because of the 1500 m races and the humidity (you can't even imagine how humid it is here!)

Yah it's terribly humid here on the West Coast of Canada at the moment... I couldn't imagine how hot Edmonton was in the past few days, probably like a sauna.
