Olym-picks Day 10

With only two days remaining in our hugely entertaining Olym-picks competition, we have a race on our hands. Feasibly, anyone could win the $500 top prize at this stage. There’s plenty of time for a dark horse to come out of the pack and take the lead. Will it be one of the regular Spbloggers or someone new?

Kathy L and Jason threw their hats into the ring yesterday with some excellent submission, both being awarded medals. The banter between the race leaders continued at pace also with Georgie K responding to the jibes from Ryan and Alex with a meme of his own. This sh*t is keeping us entertained and we love you for it.

Yesterday’s other winners were the persistent Domenic, the irrepressible Alex F and gold-seeking Georgie K.

Well done folks, keep up the good work. Keep sending us the GOLD!!

Full details of the competition, check out the Opening Ceremony blog post.

Your turn!

Submit your funny quotes, tweets, images or whatever in the comments section and try to win a medal!

      No medal Alex – but you can take satisfaction in the fact you have made the Spblog team very happy in the last week.

      Good on you!

    Synchronised swimming anybody??

  40. The funniest part of the 10km women’s swim is where the swimmers get to get their power drink. Haha, so funny. What happens if they get someone else’s drink? Is there a fight. haha. Funny sport.

  41. Finally, the K4 gold medal win has put Australia just ahead of Kazakhstan. We couldn’t lose to them, surely.

  42. K4 win, slow motion replay is just awesome. Guy paddling second is smiling/laughing before the finish line. Brilliant stuff.

  43. Would it be wrong for a men’s Rhythmic Gymnastics? haha.

  44. Is there a reason why the girls have to walk off the stage on tip toes and walk on stage with so much attitude in the Gymnastics Rhythmic? Great sport to watch. Missing the ribbon apparatus. hoola hoops are great to watch though.

  45. Everyone likes to see a pussy cat doing gymnastics.

    At the end of this competition, its going to be like the end of the breakfast club! After these twelve days, 5 complete strangers, Alex, alex f, cameron, georgie and myself, will walk away with a sense of friendship from this competition, but in the end there can only be one winner!

    A little walk, a little wobble, a little jump, a great dive and then a silver medal to young 16 yr old Brittany Broben. Fantastic stuff Australia.

    Who else can’t get enough of Bolt? Lightning does strike more than once at the games. Sensational athlete and just awesome to watch him in action. So smooth and so fast.

    They say Olympic gold spawns the next generation of budding athletes. Trust Australia to do well at sailing. My kids just asked me to buy them a bloody yacht ! Sheesh !
