Only a few months away, is anybody going/excited? I've got tickets, not sure what they're for yet. Probably the discus or the semi-final of the international fish-grooming competition or something boring.

I surely will watch something, but not sure how much and what. I believe Slovene sportists can't count to something really important, however, we shall see. I am not aknowledge either which of our athleets will participate yet.

Well, Olympics are very well in second half of the events and I have to say I was wrong. Slovenia won 4 medals so far what I really didn't expect and by those I somehow couldn't imagine for at least one athlete to acheave it.

By the leaderboards of gaining medals the standings among 2st 3 are as follows:

China 31 gold, 19 silver and 14 bronze, alltogether 64
USA 29 gold, 15 silver and 19 bronze, alltogether 63
GB 18 gold, 11 silver and 11 bronze, alltogether 40

Slovenia 1 gold, 1 silver and 2 bronze, alltogether 4
that means that Slovenia is somewhere in the middle of the leaderboards what is actually good.

Tehere are quite some events still to be performed and finished so we can expect these numbers to change, hopefully for Slovenia and GB too.

Well, Olympics London 2012 are over already for a week and we're waiting for Paralympics to begin. I can say those were one of the greatest Olympics I've watched in quite a long time, however they were also the most harsh and unjust regarding commercial things. But let's forget bad and pull good out of all of this.

USA, China and UK is the table of medals and Slovenia is on 42 place with 3 more countries.

Paralympics are comming our way and I hope you'll follow them with at least a bit the same enthusiasm then you followed Olympics. I also hope they will be as successful for all as Olympics were. Let's see what they bring.
