  2. It was all simply AMAZING! I'm so proud of our women's soccer team (Canada) and others. I was jumping up and down for Michael Phelps, Farrah, Bolt, and so many more! If I wasn't rooting for Canada, I was rooting for the GB Team! They did fabulous and brought me lots of EXCITEMENT and ELATION!

    PS: See you soon Mrs. N!!!

  5. Congratulations! To every country in the world that took part in this great manifestation, I send my deepest respect for these brilliant achievements. Of course my greatest moment of elation was when Epke Zonderland( Lackland) won a gold medal with his brilliant performance on the high bar. Well everybody gave a great show even if they didn't get a medal.

  17. Hello.
    Being an Olympian is no easy task. In my eyes, everyone is a winner, medal or not, but with that being said, it was nice to see Andy beat Roger in the tennis. He so deserved that medal!
    Have a great week everyone!

    E is for: The Eyes Of Life

  21. You have captured some wonderful Expressions in these photos. Beautiful olympics. Well done! In many ways, i think London Experienced the same change of heart that Vancouver did in our own olympics, once we were actually into the real Event. Congratulations to Britain for such a fine showing. My most memorable moments would be the end of the quarter final (Canada lost to the U.S.) and the final for women's soccer (France lost to Canada). Both times, the result changed in the dying seconds of the game.

  22. There was lots of elation, entertainment and expectation, wasn't there? I don't think I could have sustained that level of excitement for much longer...lol!

  23. Love your photos of the medalists. Usain Bolt was hilarious. Amazing athlete. Gymnastics always fantastic and nail biting. Loved the swimming and diving too. The track events too. Not so excited about beach volley ball. Didn't know who to cheer for between Roger and Andy. They both had such good reasons for being the winner. I have been a fan of Federer for several years. But OH! England deserved this medal. And I missed the game on TV. Not too thrilled with NBC coverage overall.

  24. What a great games it was... I think the highlight was the cycling in the Velodrome - who knew it could be so exciting? Plus the swimming... I'll skip the inflatable octopus and Russell Brand in the closing ceremony - that was just embarrassing!

  32. Great expressions of elation....there was certainly a lot of that, and also its opposite, over the past two weeks.

  33. Certainly lots of elation visible in those pictures; great. I don't know that I really have a favorite moment, since I'm not really much of an Olympic fan, but I am always astounded at what the athletes can accomplish. I think they're all champions, whether they left the Games with a medal or not.

  34. I loved the Olympics, and well done, London. I almost made my post about Eric Idle, what with his saucy song (and Prince Harry singing and whistling along). I'm not a fan of royalty but must admit this new crop coming up seem progressive enough to eventually liquidate the assets and set England right! Great posts, all! Amy
