This might be a stupid thread, but I think we can still have good discussions about this subject. What type of feeling do you get when you see one of your countryman win a gold medal? I feel so proud for them, because I know they've been working their butt off to accomplish this goal of theirs. Most of them only have one chance to win, and if they commit a mistake then four years of hard training and trying to qualify goes down the drain. Sometimes I wish it was me trying to compete for a medal for my country, it would be a tremendous honour to do so. Another thing is that when I watch an athlete that has a chance to win a medal I get so nervous. How about you guys?
