Olympics day 8 ,Gold!!!!!

21 02 2010

And what a gold it was for dutch Mark Tuitert. The guy lives within 30 minutes from my house and that combined with that I always thought he was a hottie made me root for him for years. He never really did what he could though when things mattered. Often finishing third , fourth or fifth. The same thing happened at the 1K where he made a misstep in the first round and lost a medal at 2/10 and ended in 5th place. Yesterday it was all working for him though and he not only started good but kept it going until the end. Even heavy favorite Shani Davis could not beat his time and won the silver, for Norway’s Havard Bokko. Davis showed he is a great guy by graciously admitting his defeat in yet another 1500m at the Olympics, 4 years ago it was against Enrico Fabris. Still gold and silver is good for almost any athlete, also Shani. Pity for the U.S he does not start in the relay where they would be a strong medal contender(silver probably). He does not get along with Hedrick though and that has a lot to do with this. Hedrick seems like a cocky ass, so I understand Shani in that regard. Still, you should be able to get over that for a medal chance at the Olympics I would think. Tuitert will start at the relay and will have a good chance for another gold.
