The very best!

Has anyone been watching the olympics? Yes it does seem to be a cash grab and some of the sports geared more for TV ratings then pure sport, but you have to admire the commitment of the athletes. I heard the other night that some of the European countries give their athletes quite a hefty sum for winning a gold. What do you think of that. At 1st I thought it cheapened the win but considering the sacrifaces that some of these athletes make, not too shabby really. It would really tick you off to win silver and lose the gols by 1/100th of a second though aye.

Their level of committment and sacrifice is pretty amazing. It was sad to see what happened to Austria's team.

I am ashamed to say I havent been following the Olympics much this time around..but I think they athletes should be compensated for their sacrifice..even a small honourariam..
