Second day Olympics Round up-Swimming !Women's competitions and winners,A must read

Some of my fav sports were there on the second day,namely,Rythmic Gymnastics, and Swimming and Diving.

I have always loved the scoring patterns and how they show the score after each routine in gymnastics..I know that the dismount is very imp. LOL..and that is all i know..but i score each of them in my head and my score pretty much approaximates with the score of the judges .

The 4x100 m freestyle relay saw the participation of lady from USA that i was talking about in my previous blog on olympics-which you can find if you scroll down this blog.

Btw..the swimming events were so inspring to such an extent that i am so filled with positivity that i somehow think i won't have enough material to be angry about to put it on my antidote ot anger blog..LOL

I saw Michel phelps just go for it and get the gold medal in 4x100m medley and his mom right there in the audience being so genuinely happy to see him win.

An Australian swimmer won the 4x100 medley and his dad or coach whoeever it was there in the audience was just so emotional that he reminded me of my dad.My dad is like that..he assumes a silent emotional contemplative mood each time he sees me win ..sweet ! My mom on the other hand has the same reaction Michel phelps mom has,, she is all chirpy and happy and telling everybody that i am her daughter..LOL..They are both different like that.

Btw..I saw china win in air pistol women's shooting competition and she had that amazing hand steady strength..Nothing moved...till she shot steadiness is also required by us as surgeons when we make incisions..Steadiness of hand is so so important.

I also saw this girl jump with joy after she won her Judo competition and she was young and was a teenager and i suddenly started thinking, WHY ARE TEENAGE MOVIES IN THE US NOT ABOUT THESE, ABOUT AIR PISTOL SHOOTERS, JUDO PLAYERS, 34 FEMALE SWIMMERS WHO REPEATEDLY PARTICIPATE IN OLYMPICS..The truth of the matter is..There are thousands of enterprising women in the US, look at all the women participants there at the olympics..They just made me super proud...Look at them , strength , precision, and skill and tons of self confidence.And what does the media do, it underplays all these important things all thes wonderful young women achieve in sports and science and medicine and choose to concentrate on silly teenagers who get pregnant..seriously..Why underplay even the existence of smart young women?


There was football..It was fun to watch the excitement of women at the matches.Not that i got to watch everything.I just saw the highlights.

Cycling is another thing i really enjoy even though it is just watching people bike..But hey,,i am a biker and i have always followed Tour de France which gives good countryside views of france.

Looks like Baseball will be part of Olympics for the last time .

There was water polo but I didnt pay much attention to it and also,, it was raining at the Archery competition,Didn't pay attention to a lot of stuff ..I will come back and update the diving.

Firstly let me go write a very positive blog there at Anger blog.BRB i come back..The synchronized diving was fun to watch.I like pretty much of synchronized anything...and it was cut when the lady who placed the medal around the winners of the synchronized diving women's team and she endearingly grab the face of one of the girls and then said something ..It was almost like an sweet aunt of yours grabs your face after she meets you after a very long time.My mom's younger sister , who is my first and eldest aunt on my mothers side does that..She really is so so sweet and dotes on me.hmmmmm

And yeah..I teared up twice when i saw two of the gold medalists , one of them , korean judo gold medal winner and perhaps the cyclist guy too..I teared up coz i can feel it..I have been there and done that..Not trained for Olympics..but I have trained for some sports and won the first prize and it felt so good ...You train well and you give it your all and you sure will feel happy at the end of it irrespective of whether it is a gold or silver..The trick is to really really really really really do the hardwork required without excuses.

hmmmmmm...the same rule of hardwork applies to med school or anything else for that matter..Real focus, real sincerity, some sacrifice is absolutelly what is needed.I used to be this person with super concentration..To admit very honestly i think i had a stoic attitude at one point of life and at that point of time, i did well in everything ...But thinking back , i think i had developed a sense of detachment which kinda helped me tide over something that i couldn't change about my surroudings and perhaps that detachment helped me focus at my own talents and made me recognize that i was super talented and that was the period i honed all the skills that i am proud of now..ya know..Now , i have lost all sense of concentration and i think , though standing the danger of sounding cliched, it is the tv and the multiple channels that has created a pseudo attention deficit disorder in me that was never there..It is just those 100 channels and i don't want to miss the best programs on any single given channel and needless to say that ambition has taken it's toll at my concentration capacities..LOL..NO seriously..I was much better off without a tv.

Either way, i wanted to make time to see the swimming events and i did ..which i am happy for.If you guys are missing out on the olympic events, please atleast make it a point to watch the highlights for the days to come.

love and hugs to everyone.
