    Ano kayang excuse ang gagamitin?

    1. Me ankle injury si Tshomlee
    2. Bad officiating/scoring
    3. It's Pres. Arroyo's fault or her good-for-nothing husband

    Take your pick

    There's no shame in losing for someone who fought with pride and honor, Mr. Go.

    A proud Filipino and a proud Thomasian.

    Our last medal hope lies on Ms. Toni Rivero.

    All of our best athletes are in the wrong sport. Like why can't Arwind Santos or JC Intal take their mad hops to the long jump or triple jump? Santos is 6'5" with a 38-inch vertical, Intal nearly 6'6" with a 39-inch vertical.

    I recall that there was a similar proposal back then for Bong Alvarez.

    Because there is no reason for them to take the leap?

    ^definitely, guys like arwind and jc have no reason to take the leap not while they're earning millions in the pba. not everyone can make the pba though and it's those who can't make it who should make the switch from basketball to track and field. just look at the hardcore leagues and you'll get plenty of sprint, high jump and triple jump prospects there. or some heavily built, bull-strong big men who can compete in throwing events.

    back to the olympics, it's really all up to toni now. ryan carneli lost in the 2nd round, leaving tshomlee out of the repachage and a possible bronze.

    Just to put the sorry stae of our sports program in proper perspective, Rohulla Nikpai of Afghanistan won the bronze medal in Tsomlee Go's division. How could an athlete from a country that was carpet bombed all the way back to the middle ages get a medal before the Philippines?

    Our neighbor Thailand also just assured itself of a bronze medal in boxing with Somjit Jongjohor (yup, the same guy that our Violito Payla defeated in the 2006 Asian Games) and Manus Boomjunong, the 2004 64 kg. Olympic Champion barging into the semifinals. These two may go all the way to the Gold. This marks the fourth straight Olympics that our neighbors have medalled in boxing (Gold in '96, Gold and Bronze in '00 and Gold, Silver and Bronze in '04). These medals will go well with their Gold in Weightlifting and Silver in Taekwondo.

    We only have Onyok's Silver in '96 to show-off for the same period.

    ^^^

    Exactly.

    Cuba, Belarus, Kenya, Kazakhstan, Jamaica, Indonesia, Zimabwe, Uzbekistan, Ethiopia, Mongolia, Algeria, Kyrgyzstan, Thailand, Malaysia, Trinidad and Tobago, Tajikistan, Togo...

    The common Pinoy may not even recognize most of these countries. Yet these "ano yun" countries managed to secure medals in the current games.

    What's the excuse of our officials again? Money?
