2 medals to Africa so far in the Olympics

Hi guys!

I don´t know if I have mentioned this to you guys before but I love sports. However, I must say it´s thanks to my big brother, who introduced me to the world of Sports. First it was football, then tennis and afterwards he showed all about cricket and rugby. I remember how we used to sit every Saturday afternoon and watch English Premier League, those were the days. I remember too when in mid-June how we also watched Wimbledon. We loved it! It was so much fun!

The interest is still there for sports and I tell you it was a sport fun fare this summer. As you all know, there was the European Championships (Football) which were quite fun, even though, I personally think that Sweden was big disappointment.
Now it´s the Olympics though and some positive news so far. OH, what a start for Africa! Zimbabwe currently leading the ranks for Africa with 1 silver medal and Algeria with 1 bronze medal. Well done to the girls, so far!

Kirsty Coventry of Zimbabwe takes silver as she finished second at 4:29.89 minutes while Austarilan Rice had winning time of 4:29.45 and third place was American Katie Hoff who finished at 4:31.71.

China's Xian Dongmei won the Olympic gold medal in the women's 52kg judo today Sunday the 10th. North Korea's An Kum Ae won the silver. Japan's Misato Nakamura and Algeria's Soraya Haddad won bronze.

Enjoy the Olympics!
