Canada Makes a Splash at Athens 2004

I think it says a lot about Canada's performance at the 2004 Summer Olympics that we've reached the midway point of the games and the biggest news made by a Canadian is this idiot from Montreal who jumped into the pool during synchronized diving. This goof dons a tutu, puts a casino logo on his chest, jumps in the pool and stays there doing his attempt at synchronized swimming for several minutes. It says a lot about synchronized swimming that it took the Olympic officials a number of minutes before they realized he wasn't supposed to be there.

Currently we've got one bronze medal and we're tied with Columbia, Croatia, Israel, Mongolia, and Slovenia along with a couple others in the medal count. Countries like Azerbaijan, Zimbabwe, Georgia, and North Korea all have two medals. I don't think North Korea even has electricity these days, but they're beating us. I'm all for the athletes giving their all and trying to get personal best results, but lets be honest, when it comes to the Olympics people judge success by the medal count. Right or wrong, having only one medal at this point doesn't inspire much national pride.

I'm sure the athletes are doing their best, I don't doubt that for a second, but where are the results? I mean why even spend 4 years playing Table Tennis (aka ping pong) if you aren't going to win a medal. I have to think that if you give anyone four years to practice Archery they'll be good enough for the Olympics. But I'm starting to sound like a bitter Canadian here, so I'll digress. I mean don't get me wrong, I love watching water polo and gymnastics as much as the next guy, but I'm a sports fan, I want to root for a winner.

Go Azerbaijan.
