How priceless is this!?! Talk about a heck of a keepsake and the sheer delight and, dare I say, wee bit of mischievous delight on her face says it all, doesn't it?

Not a bad start for Team Canada w/a Medal of every colour after Day One. After watching Day One from the pool...Holy Woowza that's a really fast pool. I can see more than a few WRs falling by the wayside by the end of the meet. I think, IIRC, there were at least five Cdn Records smashed and that's only Day One!! Going to be fun to watch!! :rubbing hands in glee:

Oh and just like every major Intl Swim Meet I watch....I may only remember odd snatches of Advance Australia Fair now, but by the end of things, I'll have relearned the whole thing once more. Until next time that is. :) I like singing along w/other Countries National Anthems if I know. To me it shows respect to the Athletes, regardless if I'm at the event or watching on TV or online.

Of course Oh Canada is my favourite one to sing, but that's no shock I'm guessing.

Speaking of Anthems...I heard Jerusalem used for Team England and The Flower of Scotland for the host Team, but my Dad wanted to know about Wales and Northern Ireland's Anthems, but I didn't have a clue. Anyone know and Thanks in Advance!!

Northern Ireland is the Londonderry Air.

Wales uses Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau (usually loosely translated into English as Land of My Fathers)

No I think it was just a coincidence and that makes it even more funny

I heard on my radio this morning that the 2 Aussie hockey players knew that door that Queen came out of was in their photo so they could see that the Queen was behind them thru the phone camera. The fact that she smiled totally makes it great.

Lovely to see the Wessex children there. Did find it odd there was no interaction with Anne in front of them...but perhaps it wasn't caught on camera.

So cute that James found the Rugby too loud and covered his ears. He is a cutie!

OMG...That picture of Sophie screaming support and there's James...W/his fingers in his ears. ROTFLOL,!!! Priceless!!

As much as I would have adored Patricia getting the Golden Sweep, her Ribbon routine did not have the sparkle of yesterday, then add in the mistakes and...Did not understand the protest considering the mistakes. Especially a very obvious moment of having to untangle the ribbon at one point. That's a big boo boo and explained the point difference between yesterday and today, which was obvious to me and the Commentators, but not Patricia's Coach I guess.

A shame she was so off, as that is one of my all time Fave Ribbon routines and when performed as it was yesterday, is something special. Oh well...That's my only quibble about the Ribbon, as I feel she was in the right spot at the end of it all. I can see her as our Closing Flag Bearer if someone else doesn't have the performances/results that Patricia has achieved over the last three days.

Now...I am so thrilled Frankie got her Fairy Tale Ending for her Career. That routine was something every Athlete dreams of for their final time competing and for her to have that moment, sort of at home, w/her Family there *and* then stand on that centre slab, w/the Gold Medal and watching her Flag go up to the strains of Wales' Anthem....I was crying right along w/her. What a moment and will be one of *the* highlights of the Games by the end of things. :)

Quite the day that Day Three ended up being. Can't wait for Day Four and all it brings.
