Wonderful news, I'm sure we will all be rooting for him. Can you remind me which event, it was the 100m wasn't it?

How wonderful to know an Olympian! Good luck to him! I absolutely love the summer Olympics. This year I'm sure it will be presented with typical British style and beauty...England DOES rule pageantry. I can't wait!
Do you remember the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles? It was SO HOLLYWOOD with the concert featuring a zillion grand pianos..... and the horde of men with jet packs floating down into the stadium.....it was fun but kind of crazy.

I know it's a long hike in from the woods Mims so we'll let you off. So long as the goats made it that's good. Don't forget the straw before you turn in for the night. Good job those fancy restaurants have free web or another sheepskin would have to be sold to make sure you can get the broadcast.

The truth is, we are all so very proud of Kristian.

Now we have a problem of who to barrack for, our country or K.

Well, the Olympics can be as much about individual achievement as it is about national glory.

For that reason, I have chosen to watch the event to support my good mate Kristian in his quest for whatever form his glory may take.

A PB would be good though. You owe us all that.

Java and I will be looking for you in the Parade of Champions too.

I have no problems barraking (sp?) for more than one country - Australia vs Wales for instance - really a win-win for me as I support Wales but am an Aussie :)

I know here in Oz we can send emails to our olympian's to wish them luck - is there an equivelant for Macadonia?

Only 16 days left until the Opening Ceremony and 25 days until my race.

No Sally, sadly we don't have the same system here in Macedonia. But these days I've been busy with all the interviews and photo-shoots and of course with the hard tranings.

It worked. Saw Kris on NBC here in the USA. Kristian, you have been seen on the almighty NBC television network here in the USA in PRIMETIME! LOL

Apologies for the above. It is actually the Parade of Nations. Doesn't become the Parade of Champions until the end of the games.

Kristian looked great. Smiling his head off. Just a second, but that was him.

A factacularian at the Olympic Games! Where will it end?

This is great! Well done London!

Ok......criticism? None.

Well, ok, one........the industrial age was embraced face to face and done well.

But imperialism? It wasn't touched. I think that was a creative mistake. You should have embraced it with both arms like you did with the industrial age.

A missed opportunity.

5.35 in morning for you me dear so I doubt your TV station will show it live. You may be able to access it online. I'll have a nose and report back.

the 400 meter qualifying rounds are scheduled for 8/4/12 (tomorrow) from 10:00 to 1:43. when or if they'll be televised here is anyone's guess. i think you'll just have to keep an eagle eye on the different channels (nbc, cnbc, msnbc, bravo & others owned by the same parent company as nbc) to catch it. if anyone knows more, hopefully they'll post it.

Click here to go to this site.

I think this site will be broadcasting live at that hour. I'm pretty sure it is available worldwide.

No it's not illegal, just a bit naughty (not like that!!)

Unfortunately I think Kris will be doing well if he doesn't finish last in his heat. His times are down on most of the other guys, but all good experience to compete in 2016 when he's a bigger, stronger lad. He's still only a child !!
