Men’s and Women’s Olympic Gold
I wrote a nice long blog about my first Olympic event but when I tried to upload it, it disappeared so all your going to get from me here is the photos. Congrats to Nadal for the gold!
On another note my heart goes out to Liu Xiang for pulling out of the Olympics. I don’t think any single athlete in the world had as much pressure as he did. I can only imagine the dialogue going on inside his head for the past few weeks. I hope he gets through this all right.
Elena from Russia took the gold.
Russia also took silver and bronze.
A victory lap for Russia.
World #1 and now Olympic Gold medalist Nadal smashes in a serve for Spain.
Gonzales from Chile put a good fight with some monster serves.
But he couldn’t fend off the power of Nadal and was beaten in three straight sets.
