100 meter showdown this Saturday night

The men’s 100 meter sprint is definitely going to be one of the highlights of the Beijing Olympics. The three favorites Tyson Gay, Asafa Powell and Usain Bolt will battle for the gold medal and title of ‘fastest man in the world’.

The heats start this Friday and the final will be held on Saturday night at 10:30 p.m., Beijing time.

You can also almost guarantee that everyone in China will be watching Liu Xiang in the 110 meter hurdles on Thursday, August 21 at 21:45. Current world record holder, Dayron Robles from Cuba will be his main competition.

I think it’s important not to forget that the Olympic Games are just that, Games, it’s nice to see your Country doing well it adds a bit of spice to the conversations in the office, especially when you work abroad like I do. I work in France and I’m a Brit so you can image the temperature of the conversations at times, we are currently in the middle of a topic close to the subject in your article “who is winning the Games” in my situation I say to my French colleges that Britain is in front of France because we have more Gold’s (for the moment that is) but they come back with France has more Medals in total… so you can see it’s not easy to call it. I have a simple suggestion, 1 Gold = 10 Points, 1 Silver = 7 Points and finally 1 Bronze = 5 Points after you can do the Math your self. If this were the situation China would have a small lead over the state but also France would be leading Britain, never mind as I said it’s just a game….
