Re: 2012 London Olympics

And now Sharapova. Vika just tweeted, she isn't there either. I think the only top players there are the ones who bear the flags, all others seem to have skipped it.

Are there any other flag bearers aside from Radwanska and Sharapova? I don't think so.

Edit: I think I just saw Kerber, or another girl with a similar arrogant facial expression

Sabine skipped the ceremony for her dubs match with her tomorrow.

Danish women's handball have had some quite lean years and Trine has carried the team on many occasions. Even when she hasn't played well, missed lots of shots, when it's 10 seconds before the end and they need a goal, she'll always step up and take the shot on. I find her whole attitude truly impressive.

After Caroline, I would love to see the handball girls win a medal, but it's unfortunately rather unlikely.

Yeah, it's a big blow. There really isn't anyone, who can replace Spellerberg in defense ...

Re: 2012 London Olympics

I'm actually not surprised most of the players skipped the ceremony, those who didn't won't be home before 2 o'clock the earliest.

Really pissed about Kerber though, so much for team spirit.

Re: 2012 London Olympics

I had a discussion about that on a German forum, apparently the Queen isn't supposed to smile or show enjoyment at these occasions, protocol asks her to look "dignified" and that's probably it.

Re: 2012 London Olympics

I don't think protocol says she has to look like and old miserable cow. She always looks so cold and distant.

In person she isn't like that at all. She is engaging, humorous, fascinating and appears genuinely interested and receptive.

I think it might be part official obligation, part subject matter, and part duty.

Forgive me for re-posting this one that originally appeared in Caro's Music Videos Thread,but I just didn't see how we could have an Olympics thread without the official London Games theme song as performed by British icon Enoch Simpson.His stirring rendition of 'England!England!England!' doesn't begin until about the 8:30 mark or so;however,such classics are well worth the wait,wouldn't you all agree?You'll notice how the audience is transfixed with admiration at this musical masterpiece

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

All the German players except for Lisicki were there.

Other than tennis the only thing I am interested in is the closing ceremony:

Re: 2012 London Olympics

Huh, Tomas Berdych did not last long. I don't think I ever saw Steve Darcis play before.

What did you think of the opening ceremony?
