    Yeah...good for you...and still nothing for Bermuda but Jamaica is doing well! The Chinese divers were just breath taking in their delivery - kudos to all of the atheletes competing this year and to those who for some reason are unable to!!

    Go Belgium!....go Pieter!!! :biglaugh:

    A short guy made it with a tall Belgian woman? That's worthy!

    Congratulations! Go Belgium!

    Sadly the IOC has not yet instituted the sport at which Onions excel: scooter weaving through traffic. I believe the IOC was concerned about getting enough jagged coral walls built to line the course and dimwitted tourists to drive up them and act as living random obstacles.

    I thought Belgian Gold was a type of beer brewed in Brugge. And here I was ready to order it with dinner Saturday night.

    Congrats on the Gold, Pieter.

    Congratulations Mr. Pieter!

    Now is the chance to avenge your country and tell the world that French fries were invented by your country, not by France.

    Congrats, Belgium!

    Whenever USA wins a gold in an event that we haven't won gold in decades, I feel elated; so I can image how Belgium feels.

    I know it means a lot.

    well I would like to see your gold metals for BEER compared to other countries. Belgium styled beers are the best (Blue Moon etc.)

    I fear it will not succeed. The rest of the world will never take seriously a country whose national symbol is a urinating boy.

    Look what happened to Denmark. First they were the terror of Europe, raping and pillaging, striking fear into the hearts of peasants everywhere. THEN they adopted some scaly watery tart for their national symbol and virtually overnight they go from being scary people with battle axes and pointy hats to a nation of children's toys, fairy tales, and pastry!
