    I think the Lithos can do it. The quality of the USA's game has slipped a lot these games I think we can safely say. If we can come that close the Lithos can do better, they are a VERY strong basketball nation.

    Khorkina was robbed - deserved higher on the beam and on the floor. Her floor routine got deducted as they gave her a 9.9 start value instead of the 10.0 it should have been. Patterson was good, but did not deserve more than 9.7 on floor. But you have to give it to her for giving an excellent beam routine - was pretty great.

    But Khorkina should have won! Oh well. Let's just hope that at least she retains her assymetric bar title from 2000 and 1996
    Yeah, I was going for Svetlana as well.

    Also take into account her age! (OK I know there are and have been loads of good young gymnasts through the years but still it's pretty impressive!!)

    I was cheering for carly, but i kind of feel bad for Svetlana. She is incredible and after all she has put into gymnastics over her life, she really deserved to win the gold on her last trip to the Olympics.

    Our guys won't let us down. I know that they have been stinking up the court the last week or so, but they know that if there is one thing we are used to it is a gold medal in basketball. They won't let us down. *crosses fingers*

    Indeed. His prime seems to have covered the ages of 18-22 judging by his performances over the last two years. As i said earlier though, i hope he proves me wrong.

    he will trust me on that

    United shock swoop for Vieira
    Friday, 20 August, 2004, 18:50 UK

    Manchester United have announced to the stock exchange that they have completed the signing of Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira for a fee of £12.9m. The deal also sees Cristiano Ronaldo move to the North London club.

    Vieira, a crucial member of the Arsenal team that went unbeaten last season, cited a "better chance at European success" as key reason for moving

    Patrick Vieira factfile

    The deal which involves United's young Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo making the move to Highbury, was announced shortly after 7pm to a shocked press conference.


    Ronaldo, who returned to England earlier than expected after Portugal were surprisingly knocked out of the Olympics by Costa Rica, was said to be pleased with the move, but would not comment to journalists.

    Neither players will be available for their repective clubs this weekend.

    Fantastic business for Arsenal - the board must be rubbing their hands

    Have your say on 606

    Vieira's departure has been the speculation of the football world all summer, with Real Madrid thought to be his preffered destination. The 28-year-old, who is currently out of action with a thigh injury, says he looks forward to linking up with his new teamates.

    David Dein the Arsenal chairmen, had just this to say "He told Arsene and me in early June that he wanted to leave and go to Real Madrid," he revealed.

    "We obviously tried very hard to dissuade him, but his mind was very made up.

    "We came within hours of losing him, maybe just an hour. Literally, just prior to signing off an agreement, he said 'I cannot leave the club', that seems to have changed when he learnt of Uniteds interest"

    For his country, Vieira played under Didier Deschamps, who led France to victory in the 1998 World Cup, as well as Desailly.

    Why is trampolining an Olympic sport? It is just stupid. It's nice that those girls can turn upside down after jumping on a powerfull trampoline, but giving medals for it just seems rididulous.
