    weightlifters from Kazackstan??? got 250,000$$$

    John Boyter?? If you ever saw where that young lady trains you would probably faint, vomit or cry...None of the US, China or any European would even enter that gym....pathetic...

    For those who think it is all roses: Gabby Douglas' mother had to file for bankruptcy this year. That might be a thing of the past if Gabby's agent has anything to do with it.
    The Lochte's are in danger of foreclosure of their home in Florida....

    All is not well in paradise. Team GB spent 100 million pounds, the RD$68 million (supposedly) that's chicken feed....

    Know you all: The DR has the potential to be greater than Cuba, if things were done right!!

    Yes it is amazing that she came that far. I did not imply that is what not a great acomplishment. Just that she had the potential to do better. She was also unlucky. About the US athletes going broke despite winning gold medals I have no idea.

    I think only real athletes and olympians knows how tough it is and what it takes. Did you ever train as hard as any of them? You sound like you tried it yourself. I have myself have no idea. Just did sports on intermediate level

    Felicidades Felix!

    I am happy for the Dominican Republic since they won a gold. The USA won countless gold medals this year and that has made me happy. I was waiting for the Dominican Republic to win one too since I love that country also.

    Felix Sanchez brought a lot of positive attention to such a great country. He is an inspiration and I hope he is starting a tradition of track and field being superior in the DR just like baseball is. Dominican baseball players are second to none, possibly track will be the same way in the future. I know it is possible

    While i know everything is subject to interpretation, I have always thought the strongest most consistent olympic team sport in the DR was Women's volleyball.

    They are in the Quarter Finals tomorrow at 2:00 PM against the consensus team to beat, USA.

    I hope both teams have great games and may both teams athletes do their respective countries proud.
