  1. Congrats to her! We are certainly poroud of her.

    But I can't shake off the fact that there isn't exactly a hoo ha over her medal prospects before and now that she wins? Why?

  2. Congrats!

    PS: Japan's women's soccer team Nadeshiko lost against the USA. Drat. Sulk. Sigh.

    PPS: I don't have the faintest idea who many medals South Africa has won by now. I only follow Japan news. Am I an awful South African? o_0

  3. Lina, probably because she didn't have an Olympics track-record yet although she has won medals in other world championships. Besides, success is sweeter playing the unnoticed at the Olympics and then made an impression with a win.

    I'm sure she is enjoying all the attention she is getting and well-deserved too after all the hardwork.

  4. Rurousha, SA is doing better than Malaysia winning 5 medals in all at position #21 on the Medal Count with 3 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze.

    South African, Chad le Clos wrested a Men's 200m butterfly gold from Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time with 22 medals. Happy days ahead for De Clos (and others), I suppose.

    You, an awful South African? No, just an awesome Japanese. LOL
