Are you pleased with your country's performance?
I am. I was amazed by the Evers-Swindell twins, who after seeming almost invincible in 2004 have been quite frankly average since but proved themselves to be true champions when the big event came around again, and by Valerie Vili's immense performance, and I was surprised but elated with the gold medal earnt by Tom Ashley (from Takapuna! Just down the road from me. WAG). I was also proud of the other medal performances by our cyclists, rowers, Bevan Docherty in the triathlon and Nick Willis in the 1500. Also special mention for Mahe Drysdale, haven't seen a sportsperson representing NZ give as much effort as that in a long time and I'm sure he would have done better if he'd been 100% fit. Hope to see him again in four years.
Our best Olympics in the time I've been old enough to take interest, so plenty of reason to be proud. Well done NZ. :happy:
