Bibi Olympic Zone_Michael Phelps Ties The Record



Today's Highlight's

Michael Phelp's has tied the record with the old Soviet Union gymnast Larisa Latynina, racking up 18 Olympic medals. One more and he takes over the history books!

The USA women's gymnastic team WON GOLD!!!!!
Congrats to the Men's USA volleyball team, which won gold for the time in 20 years! Also congrats to USA women, which advanced to the quarterfinals with their 1-0 win over North Korea!

Random Opinions
I have to mention the 16 year old Chinese swimmer, Ye Shiwen who was faster in the final leg of the 400 individual medley then Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte. She beat her own record by 7 seconds from the year before. Is this "interesting" or "incredulous"? I'm not accusing anyone of anything, but when you swim like that, don't be surprised when they want to dope test you. I know she is young and a prodigy, so right now I will send her my congrats, until otherwise!

2nd Athlete Thrown out of Games for Bad Tweet

WOW! Twitter is playing a big role in these Olympics, as in this is the 2nd Olympian tossed for a bad tweet.  Michel Morganella, a player on the men's Swiss soccer team, apparently sent out a tweet saying Koreans should "burn themselves" and described them as "retards" after the Swiss lost 2-1 to South Korea on Sunday.

The first to go was Demtris Nellas from Greece. This was her tweet “With so many Africans in Greece…at least the West Nile mosquitoes will eat homemade food!!!”What are they thinking? An inappropriate tweet can send you home so fast, you won't have time to even tweet an apology!

Game Over before it barely begin.  What a shame!!

Bibi Olympic Zone_ Let The Games Begin!

The 2012 Olympic Games Have Begun!

I am always excited to see the Olympics! It takes so much work and dedication to get there. There is a VISA commercial running on what it takes to get to the Olympics...the commercial is so right on. You can't buy your way onto the podium, you have to run, swim, bike, sail or perform one of the various Olympic talents, which makes this unique in my opinion.


Opening Ceremonies: Of course the best part was the Queen and James Bond segment. I loved it, but I do have to ask one question though...Is there a reason why the Queen doesn't smile, when it seems she should...like at an Olympic ceremony in your nation?  Someone asked during the ceremony here in America, what does she carry in her hand bag? The answer back jokingly: Her smile! I knows she smiles and think she is a great lady. If the British people know something about these things, share your thoughts, but I will delete anything that is not in the Olympic spirit.

By the way there seemed to be a little scandal about the flame.  Apparently it could not be seen outside the stadium. I am happy to report, it seems that the flame has been moved to the other side of the stadium (see photo below) and relit! That is good news because not everyone gets to see the games but can enjoy 
Olympic Park, and want to see the flame. I know I would!

At the opening ceremony, we had our first time Olympic watcher! 

Olympic Results:

The gymnastics have been interesting, with China & Romania 
woman athlete's having a few missteps. Can't wait to see the women perform.  The USA men unfortunately slipped in 5th place today and will see no medal after Danell Leyva & John Orozco faltered on the pommel horse.
The wonderful surprise is that Great Britain first scored Silver, then Japan had an inquiry over the pommel horse, which bumped their score from 4th to 2nd place, hence Great Britain won Bronze!

Olympic Medal Highlights

Medal Count as of 7/30 (will update tonight)

I'll be back with more Olympic results and the latest Bibi animations.

Is London Ready For The Olympics?


I have very high hopes that London will produce a great Olympics, but if today was any indication of things to come, they will have to pickup the pace a little. Today's gaffe happened when the electronic scoreboard showed the South Korean flag for the North Korean women's football match against Colombia. Seems the women had a fit and delayed the game by one hour until it was corrected.

I would advise to have someone that knows all the national flags or has a computer in front of them to Google it!

CONGRATS to the USA women's soccer team for a comeback win and beating France!
Here is a link to an official London Site for The Olympics

Cheers Everyone!
