    Well on Sunday finally trekked out to the biggest show in town, what a great day and a great setup - transport was flawless, half a milion people in the main park at homebush - yet had no problems getting food, it wasnt particulary crowded walking around... very nice work indeed!

    At the main stadium we saw a morning seesion, this was some 110m Mens hurdles heats, discus qualifying, womens heptathalon long jump, and the womens marathon finished while we were there... the feeling of building excitement was unbeliveable, seeing all the helicopters closing into the main stadium (I counted 10 + the blimp..) When the little Japanese girl who won it burst in there was a huge roar, same as when the Aussie girl came in. But the biggest ovation was for a little lady from East Timor came in (I dont know how many of you guys are aware of the problems in east timor, but Australia played a big part in the peacekeeping force there after the timorese kicked the indoneseians out, so we got a soft spot for 'em).. she was third last, but the place went totally nuts. It was kinda special, and proves that beyond all the drug cheats, corrupt IOC officials etc etc, theres actually something special about this thing

    Anyways, heres some photos, from our trip to the baseball on the 1st weekend, and our big trip to olympic park the following, hope you enjoy 'em

    My favorite pic was the one with that dude who's got the Aussie flag. LOL.

    All his pals were nice enough to pose with him.

    Ah, the type of brotherhood that only the Olympics can inspire...
