Hello Everyone! The games have been fantastic. We have seen Medal ceremonies for Judo and Weightlifting. Other events we have attended are: Basketball-Germany vs. Angola, Basketball-China vs USA; Boxing and Rowing.
Jacque, We have certainly made up for all the basketball we missed during the Warrior Basketball season. we have seen Dirk Norwinsky, Caymen, Kirilenko, and of course, the entire USA team! D. Wade and Lebron were dunking like crazy!! Yao Ming was, of course, the crowd favorite.
It is really moving seeing the players receive their medals. all of the hard work over the past four years and the pride and honor of country is truly visible.
We have also met a few dignataries, and former Olympians. Prince Albert of Monaco is really warm, friendly and down to earth.
Tomorrow we tour the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City.
talk to you soon.
Karen and Malcolm
