Rio Events from USA perspective.
« on: August 26, 2016, 09:28 AM »
The Australian Comedian Marty Fields has shared on his Facebook Page  a unique perspective on how some here on the FOG [ie some of our US friends] may have viewed the great successes of Michael Phelps at the recent Olympics.

And who could blame them.[big grin]

If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.

Now that is funny!  But remember he didn't get Gold in every event in which he competed this year.  We, certainly recognize there is quite respectable competition in swimming.  It is still, nonetheless, funny.

Congratulations to Great Britain!  They came in second in total number of medals and second in number of gold.  Quite an accomplishment, especially given the population size of the country.

I think people in the USA tend to forget that we are the third most populous country in the world.
