Game spirit’s really heating up in Rio. Philippines won a silver at, surprise, surprise, weightlifting (such is the trend these days- Filipinos are winning in sports that mainly showcase sheer physical strength and stamina e.g. boxing, martial arts and the like)! What incredible strength in a woman! 200kg! Now I know what masculine strength in a woman looks like. It’s sexy. Reminded me of Jane Fonda’s Barbarella.
Then there’s my other two favorite Olympics sports: gymnastics and synchronized swimming. These have always been dominated by the US, Russia (USSR before), and China. Same today apparently. They must have in them or their training particular algorithms that do not accept nothing less than a win in these categories. I’d like to know. Or, is it already obvious? Ha ha.
And of course soccer. After a tremendous upset of Honduras six to none, Brazil (with Barca’s Neymar and Rafinha no less) will go up against an equally worthy rival, Germany, in the finals! Crossing my fingers then.
