everyone that wasnt there for a medal was because their event was on the day before and they left to go home, one to se his mum is hopsital. they get presented with an informal ceremony before they go, i know because i have to wait til its over until i get to go bloody home.katmeow said:w00t... go Miao Miao
Watching the athletics last night... there were a few people who didn't show up for medal presentations, including a gold medalist. Seems kinda rude!
Seriously, what was the point of posting that? What, the cynicism quotient in this thread wasn't high enough?fronky said:I think that all those people that volunteered are going to have the worst withdrawals ever. From what I could see, it seemed like most of the volunteers were either losers with nothing better to do with their time, or retirees (sorry to any volunteers reading this - remember I said most not all ). Then for two weeks they are transported to this magical happy place where everybody loves them and respects them. Now that the games are over, they have to go back to their Joe Shmo lives, with no respect or love from anybody. It's going to be a massive comedown. Poor buggers.

And I'm sure you're not a loser....(???)
