Apology about last week’s article: I said that Jeremy Wariner’s 400 meter race was August 23 but it turned out to be the wrong date. I usually try to check with two or three sources before I write such information but in this case, after a lengthy search, I only found one website and it stated that it would be on the 23rd. Later in the week I found the more trustworthy nbcolympics.com which gave all the schedules, plus videos and fun athletes’ information.
No, I didn’t get to see Jeremy run his race. I wondered why my television showed archery, taekwondo and weightlifting most of the day. I kept waiting for the women’s (and toddlers) gymnastics but they never showed. It finally dawned on me that Korean TV only showed games in which there were Korean competitors. The only Phelps swim race that I saw was the one in which a Korean also swam (the Korean got the silver). I tried to watch the replays of Jeremy and Michael Phelps on nbcolympics.com but a caption popped up that said “sorry, viewing is prohibited outside of the United States”.
