Re: Russia @ Bejing Olympics: News, Results, Discussions...
In general, Russia is doing pretty badly in the first days of these Games... Last Games they already had 2 or 3 golds in the first two days as far as I remember. Russia would be lucky to take 20 golds this time around.
Maybe Russian officials and athletes put too much pressure on themselves before the Olympics. They were ambitiously talking about getting 30 gold medals.
