I like this photo of King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia from yesterday. Seems as if Carl Gustaf tried to take a picture of his Queen.

Yes, it's a nice pic!

But the king made a photo of Anne-Marie of Greece, not of Queen Silvia!

Oh yes, you are right.
I didn't noticed Queen Anne-Marie in the top of the picture. First it seems like he holds the camera to Silvia, but when you watch it twice you can see that he puts it on his cousin Anne-Marie.

Some protest are about the Danish team using the Croate boat. The other teams could only se the Croate banner and not the Danish one - therefore they didn't know Denmark was in the race,

I think it is a fair protest but unforturnatly it might result in Denmark getting disqualified.

Still the danish team did a fantastic job and the Croats deserve a .

It is wonderful to see how falsely informed the agencys are. The picture-information says "The Queen Margreth of Denmark and her husband Prince Henri visit the Lama Temple in Beijing". And who is on the pictures?Not Queen Margrethe and her husband Prince Henrik.
On the pictures are the King and queen of Sweden. I think it is embarrassingly for the agencys that the don't know the correct names of the people the take a photo from.

All the same, I am excited to see so many pictures of the european royals at the Olympic Games. I'm a total sportsfreak and a total fan of the european royal families. To connect both is madly.
Unfortunately the Games will end next sunday. From me they should take place every year, but then this event would lost his special spirit.

Hope, next week there will be as many pictures as last week.

¡Enhorabuena, España! (Congratulations, Spain) Rafa Nadal is the Nr. 1 in tennis since tomorrow, with an olympic gold medal already won. The king is dead. Cheers to the new king! That´s life, ladies and gentlemen.

Congratulations to all whose countries have won medals.

That is what I think is so awesome about Princess Anne. Look at how wet she is and she wasn't complaining at all. No wondering about her hair, just doing her duty. What an awesome lady!

Just watched a wonderful interview with Mark Spitz and he stated that in "his day" they didn't have to swim all those prelims that they do now to get into the actual race and that he only could prefect two of the strokes while Michael does well on all four. Apparently they are good friends and email each other. Mark actually said that "records are made to be broken" and that he was thrilled that Michael did it. I don't know how any of the athletics do what they do -- hard work -- and the track runners are just mind blowing.

I see, Winnie, so Mark Spitz recognizes Michael is better at least in that area, he dominates all four strokes the shark from Baltimore. The face of Michael is so different to a shark, couldn´t it be a dolphin? The Baltimore dolphin, I prefer that.

I am so happy that Roger Federer won gold for his country!
