Olympics Fever Hits WYD Hard! (Part I)

Fret not, this is not gonna be a post suggesting Olympic games in WYD like the rest had done. Its more of a narrative and informative kinda view. Stuff i write are not plagiarised in any way and are instead written by myself with the best of my knowledge. Enjoy! (:
---
Coolio with the Torch of Olympics. lol.
---
Beijing Olympics 2008 took the world by storm and not sparing the cyber community world as well. Members from their country academies cheered and jeered for their compatriots even in game.
---
This year's Olympics has plenty of great sports atheletes to look at, really talented and inspiring. As you already knew, im from Singapore and our stars include Ronald Susilo (Badminton) and Li Jia Wei (Table Tennis aka Ping Pong). The former is out early to our dismay but the latter has assured Singapore a medal at the very least. Li Jia Wei together with Wang Yuegu and Feng Tianwei looks set to bring at least a Silver Medal back.
---
Okay enough about my country's stars. Lets move on to others.
---
I followed Usain Bolt aka the World's Fastest Man in his 100m dash event. The 1.96m Jamaican was an accidental runner for 100m race. His closest rivals on paper include compatriot Asafa Powell and USA's Tyson Gay. Sad to say none of his close rivals matched his pace and dominance and both finished out of the top three.
---
Micheal Phelps was also the World's Fastest Man, but in the water. He looks set to create a new record, over Mark Spitz to be the man to win 8 gold medals in an Olympic game. He is already titled the Greatest Olympian already.
---
So, how can you blame us for being down with Olympics Fever? Singapore is going to get another medal after a long wait of 48 years. Micheal Phelps as at now already equalled Mark Spitz's record. Usain Bolt was a living lightning bolt and smashing his own world record.
---
Wow what a spectacular Olympic Game we have this year. So Coolio got hit with the Olympic Fever as well and starts practicing for all the sporting events for London 1012 lol.
---
Coolio with 1.5k strength can lift the weight with 1 hand? :o
---
Weight Lifting
---
Something tragic happened in the weight lifting competition. 24 year old Janos Baranyai from Hungary dislocated his elbow when he tried to lift a 148kg bar. He was in the squarting position and his right forearm gave way under the pressure. It was his debut at an Olympic Game too; how tragic for him.
---
For a heart-wrenching video of it, click here. But be prepared its not a nice sight. Ouch.
---
Coolio winning the race with Dewata and Rimba eating his dust. :x
---
100m Dash
---
Usain Bolt was an accidental runner of this event as he was actually planned for the 400m and 200m events. With a giant frame of 1.96m he only used 41 strides to cover 100m while an average sprinter needs 45. He broke his own World Record and it now stands at 9.69 seconds. Indeed, he lives up to his name, Usain BOLT.
---
Coolio's fishing skills with a spear helped him with the Javelin lol.

Javelin

Not a sport i follow, but heck, i saw some pretty hot babes taking part. Think she was Swiss and had her blonde hair tied up. Comment on it if you have any links or photos of her hehehhe.

Coolio passing the baton to... Coolio? omgwtfbbq! lol.

4x100m Relay Race

Again, another event i did not follow. Perhaps cos i was lazy finding the schedule for it. But correct me if im wrong, i think Usain Bolt won the event with his Jamaican teammates? lol. Comment on it if u know more :)

Thats all folks for Part I of the Olympic Fever. At 7:30pm Singapore time (GMT+8) which is 8:30pm ingame time, Singapore's gonna face off with host China for the Gold medal!

Stick around to find out if they succeeded in doing so tomorrow!

Comments are welcome, really, especially if you know more bout the events which i did not know bout. (:

Refering to CM Dhar's and CM Nyx's post about the death of a security guard in the building, my condolences to him. Guys do check out CM Nyx's post as i think she needs some reaction and reflections on something. Check both their blogs at the right column. Thank you.

Your Royal Coolness,
