    But...what about Canada 
     
    We're G7, you know.  Because we have friends in high places (USA).

    Yes, I agree. Let's keep Olympics to european nations, USA and (maybe) Australia, clearly the only civilized countries in the world.

    As much as I like Totallympics, is a little hard to have time to visit this forum with all of the things the Olympic Games has to offer (for instance, is 3AM here now, and I'm only knowing about some medalists now - congrats Argentina!). But I plan to share some things about about my experiences, so here's a little bit of what happened this weekend.
     
    I arrived in Rio at Saturday morning and soon after lunch I went to the Deodoro Olympic Park, which takes forever from the apartment I'm at. For instance, from the first Deodoro access to the Shooting Center, you have to walk for about 30 minutes. Fortunately, I arrived at the venue few minutes before the 10m Air Pistol medal, which gave Brazil the first medal of these Olympic Games. It was an absolutely amazing moment and it was great to be there. Felipe Wu 
     
     
    Soon after, I went to the Field Hockey Center with tickets for a session that brought two exciting matches. First one was Argentina vs USA in Women's. There was fans from both teams, but I have to say that argentines really "invaded" Rio, they're everywhere! Very passionate fans, even in defeat. Next match was the first ever Brazilian Hockey men's team match in the history of Olympics and man... they're just not good. That didn't stop the brazilian fans (me included), that cheered every defense of our guys  In the return for home at the train, argentine fans singing all the way - some healthy rivalry with brazilians, all in good fun.
     
     
    Saturday was a great first day but incredibly tiresome (as I have predicted), so on Sunday I slept a little more than I should. I had tickets for Tennis in the Olympic Park starting at 10AM, but I went only after lunch. Park is huge (as one may expect) and you have a lot to do there beside the sport events. I had no idea about the schedule so it was surprising that, by the end of the day, I had seen matches of three Tennis super stars (an two of them lost). First match was Nadal vs Delbonis, dominance from the spanish. After that it was time for Teliana Pereira but I decided to see what was happening in the secondary courts and went to the Makarova vs Buyukakcay match because I like the russian, but somehow I ended up rooting for the turkish like pretty much everyone, including her coach beside us. After Makarova's win, I went back to Court 1 and Pereira already had lost 
     
     
    For the night, two Doubles matches. First the Williams sisters vs Safarova/Strycova. Ecstatic to see Serena (again, I had no idea about the schedule). Lots of czech coaches/athletes (? - they were wearing the official uniforms), that were very happy with their win. Ready to go home, I hear there was going to be another Doubles match, now with Bellucci/Sá vs the Murrays. Aside from the Shooting medal, this was probably my favourite moment so far. Amazing atmosphere in the arena, brazilian joy. Transportation/access perfect, much easier than Deodoro - for which I will return this Monday afternoon for Basketball/Rugby competitions.

    Such ridiculous overscores now. This is really unfair to the girls who competed at the first subdivision. The US is not this good. They are the best, no doubt about it, but these scores are just plain wrong. Total BS.
