Another Gold for Canada

Anyone reading this out of the blue would think that I'm a Canadian instead of Seattlite watching the Olympics on cable...

Anyway, another Canadian won gold, this time a 38 year-old cyclist in the Women's Sprint. Again, the Canadian national anthem sounded utterly horrible as played by whatever they are using to play it in Greece. I wish they'd find a better arrangement. It's such a beautiful song, I hate to hear it so utterly out of tune.

A Canadian diver (a very young one) got Silver in the 3 meter Springboard, too, today. I saw the end of that event. It was pretty cool to watch.
