  1. ... I wonder how "the public" will be interested in these Youth Olympic Games - I'm not interested at all to watch 14 or 16 years old boys and girls participate in 100 m running or fencing or 100 backstroke etc. etc....
  2. It will be so called "Youth Games" I overplayed it to draw attention to a problem of such youth games: One noble phrase about the normal Olympic Games runs "to perform is everything" - but this phrase is just an illusion - the public awaits from "their" athletes gold medals - therefore there is a pressure to perform on the athletes. This pressure to perform will be ampflied into the childhood with these Youth Games.
  3. LOL - I have had just the same thougths, when I heard that story in the news...
  4. I just imagine some artists of the Cirque disguised as lobsters and suddenly Celine appears out of the ground disguised as jelly-fish singing a song!!!
  5. that would be nice!!!!! :) - that word is interesting - in German we have "Schoner" - a "Schoner" is a special type of sailing ship with two masts...
  6. I agree with your principles, but what is typical e.g. for Canadian nature? I think the sement of the "Great Salt Lake" with the different animals at the opening ceremony of Salt Lake City 2002, would fit for Vancouver, too... Maybe the fauna of the pacific with its sea-otters or orcas???
  7. FOR YOUR EYES ONLY ... a top secret image: the ceasing ot the first youth olympic fire is practised therefore nothing unanticipating incident happens during the closing ceremony...
  8. The silver medal winner of boys wrestling (graeco-rom. style) takes a well deserved nap after the final...
  9. Welcome to the mixed ice-eating final - we have five particpants at the final: Anna Vodkova from Russia, Jane Hungry Jacks from Australia, Antonio Caipirinha from Brazil, Martin Luther Burger King from the United States and finally Helga Sauerkraut from Germany - Anna has a fantastic start - Jane's ice falls to the ground - Antonio has nearly finished - Martin has his mind anywhere but not here - Helga prefers Sauerkraut - and the winner is Antonio Caipirinha from Brazil!!!!
  10. Even crocodiles tears aren't able to help when you fake your age - the winner of the 100 m girls backstroke had to give her gold medal back, because she faked her birth date (she wasn't 5 but 8 years)...
  11. the audience in the Youth Olympic Stadium goes crazy during the final lap of the 800 m boys hurdles!!!
  12. the fourth of "who has the ugliest cap" event has to be comfort by her coach
  13. Doping control of the gold medal winner of female boxing (weight class < 30 kg)
  14. The male Tennis Final Weightlifting - acknowledge the dumbell suitable for children First round of the "mother-children" 50 m Final Football final - mixed teams
  15. I'm not a fan of "Youth Olympic Games" - what sports should be part of them? e.g. Gymnastics - at the "normal Olympic Games" the women are more children - should 5-10 years old girls participate on the Gymnastics events at the Youth Olympic Games? What is with the coaches? Are adult coaches allowed to help the little kids? Are only kids allowed at the ceremonies? Are adults allowed to watch? These questions sound a little bit silly first - but seriously who wants really to watch teens compete against each other?
  16. @ GBModerator, today I tried three times to log in - I do not want to try more than one time to log in or even better to be remembered, when I didn't logout before.....
  17. mhh - I logged in at the work computer yesterday and didn't logged out - maybe that is the reason... You can't be logged in at two computer at the same time...
  18. LOGIN/LOGOUT I had to recognise that I had to log in altough I didn't log out before - in the past I just need to open the GB website and I was remembered - but not today/anĂ½more.... then I tried to login - but it needed several attempts.... VERY VERY STRANGE
  19. The ICE and the TGV ran together in Gard d'Est to celebrate the start of the new high-speed-link between Germany and France!!!
  20. I wonder when the logo of the torch relay route is printed on stationery, tissues and toilet paper... @ Pui, I really like the logo, but I don't like such marketing... it is totally overdone - I suppose there will be an olympic torch design car, too
  21. Vietnam in English, German, etc. etc. but Viet Nam in Vietnamese, Chinese etc. etc.....
  22. For me the torch should be carried by people the most of time/route and not by plane....
