I amazes me how our country could try to host another games when they don't even support our athletes. Our athletes have to train on budgets that are sub-standard to third world countries. Depending on private sector for funds is an embarrasment. A medal tally or even just a respectable result that Canada gets when compared to other countries that are a 1/16th of our size and wealth is just pathetic in my eyes.
I cheer for all Canadians that compete in the games as they are heros for getting as far as they have.
Did you know that a alot of our athletes live close to the poverty line.


Got Milks!
