2008 Beijing Olympics

Philippines standing in the recently concluded 2008 Beijing Olympics: 0-0-0. Pathetic. But we should always keep in mind that there are other countries with the same standing like ours, right? Does it make you happy to know that? Relieved perhaps?

I still feel like we could have done better. Imagine, we got gold in the Wushu demonstration. How come we failed in the other sports? Maybe, there’s too much pressure on the athletes? Or there’s not enough training? I believe there should be a serious evaluation of our national sports department. Are we tapping the right people to head the various sub-departments under it? Are we really exerting all efforts to win in international competitions?

The next Olympics will be held in London on 2012. I do hope we’ll do much better by then. *keeping my fingers crossed
