  1. Oh, yes! What a final. Very happy for Team GB. My heart went out to the Ukrainians though, who ended up being pushed to 4th. It was an exciting night of swimming, too! The highlight for me was Nick Thoman winning silver behind his teammate Matt Grevers in the men's 100m backstorke (the 5th straight time USA has won the event, I think), who almost retired after failing to make the Olympic team in 2008.
  2. Agreed! Her reactions were priceless. Enjoyed the 3-meter synchronized diving competition. Congratulations to Abby Johnston and Kelci Bryant on winning the silver!

    Found this video of Evgenia's Pharaoh's Daughter debut:
  4. I really enjoyed the Opening Ceremony. The children's literature segment was a highlight. And I thought the lighting of the torch was really cool and original. The men's swimming competition is one of my favorite Olympic sports. Looking forward to it, as well as gymnastics and diving.
  5. Maria Shirinkina recently debuted as Giselle. http://youtu.be/SmT_FdWhUns http://youtu.be/eRf5SotWpac http://youtu.be/uaWV1p5i-_M And as Aurora, too, I believe. http://youtu.be/PQLd0jzkl9U
