Hey, I didn't win it! :D But yeah, happy that someone from Singapore goes out to achieve something like that. Really happy for him.

Media circus is out like wolves here. It's a bit sickening to see so many people trying to leech onto his success to get exposure for themselves. He needs an experienced manager to filter out the BS for him.

well he is from singapore so u won it too :D i recallhow insane was whne we won our 1st gold :proud:

but yes, vultures are all around,specially these days,like u said hope he can find a good manager that can help him evolve but also protect from the "success",also he needs to have himself a sound mind,to keep his feet on the ground

Dammit, Joao. :(

Lots of nice stories in these Olympics though. Other countries got their first gold medals too. :thumbsup:

watched some swimming finals and some waterpolo games so far

some beach volley, a nice sport but not half as entertaining as foot volley (both to watch and play) I am kinda pissed that it isnt olympic yet, especially in Rio

will watch some kayak-canoe finals, maybe

Just watched women's pole vaulting...we chose the wrong sport. Why are most if not all really really pretty :howler:

Been following volleyball a bit of boxing, long distance running and ,obviously, sailing :rastgele:

It was so bad. I mean the mongolian losing after battering the french lad was bad hilariously cringe worthy but this one was too much...I enjoy boxing...this is depressing yet totally hilarious.

Amateur Boxing :howler:

I'm not out to piss on Fird's parade but butterfly swimming is a ridiculous event that should be excluded from the Olympics. It's almost as ludicrous as the racewalking event.

And no, I'm not biased here. Sweden got their only gold medal in the same event. Is Remi still here BTW?

Since you said "piss on", Remi should be here any minute now. :thumbsup (1):
