  7. Well, its official: Canada will have a boat in every Canoeing flatwater events.
  8. Horrible news. My deepest sympathies to the peoples concerned, and best of luck for the rescue teams.
  9. Actually it appears to be the only sport he enjoys...
  10. James, can't you detect humour when its staring at you right into the eyes?
  11. Well, its official: Canada will only have one boxer at the Olympics.
  12. The draw for Football has been completed.

  14. Well, Canada's Synchro Swimmers are going to Beijing: Canada finished third in the "Good Luck Beijing" Synchronized Swimming Qualification Event and grabs the last remaining place in the Team event (and an automatic berth for the Duet event). Spain and Japan finished first and second, respectively.
  15. Well, Azerbaijan did draw against Spain at the last EuroHockey, so it would not be inconceivable for them to win the tournament, altought it is true that Spain has to be the favourite.
  16. About time that Canada's women Football team makes it to the Olympics. Anyway, I hope they do well in Beijing.
  17. I don't mind it if everyone has access to it (which will hopefully happen). Swimming suits just have a tendency to evolve, its the way it is. Looking forward to seeing a lot of world records being smashed in Beijing.
  18. Quite a shame, it was always good publicity for the Paralympics. I wonder why BOGOC (spelling?) drooped the event...
  19. Sam Cools? As for the women's road race, it looks like its going to be close between sending two or three athletes.
  20. Here are some more wild cards given by the tripartite commission , this time in Archery. Men's individual: Bhutan Iraq Myanmar Women's individual: Bhutan Mauritius Tajikistan For those wondering why Bhutan got two wild-cards in Archery, it should be noted that Archery is Bhutan's national sport.
  21. And lets be honest, the Beijing games weren't attributed on technical merit...
  22. I am quite happy Mo Zhang qualified since she is still very young (18 years old I believe) and have a bright future in the sport. She is currently ranked 143rd in the world. As for Peter-Paul Pradeeban, he is ranked 269nt in the world. That also means that Canada will represent North America at the men's Table Tennis team event in Beijing.
  23. The last men's Field Hockey Qualifying Tournament just kicked-off in Japan. Here are the day 1 results: Germany 8 - 0 Italy Malaysia 2 - 1 Poland Switzerland 1 - 2 Japan Only the winner of the tournament will make it to Beijing.
  24. It depends how many country qualify two single entry. We just might make it as the ninth or tenth world quota. Anyway, so far Canada qualified one athlete from yesterday's Capilano Trials (North American TT Qualifier) Men's Single: Wilson Zhang of Canada (WR# 122) defeat Pradeeban Peter-Paul of Canada (WR#266)
